The Good Inexpensive; HDCP-compliant DVI input.
The Bad Mediocre performance; height not fully adjustable; limited video connectivity.
The Bottom Line The Dell E207WFP's low price makes it a worthwhile budget LCD contender, as long as you don't need high performance or extra features.
With all the buzz about extra screen real estate boosting productivity, you can now make a legitimate case to your boss to spring for some big wide-screen displays. You might face an uphill battle, but Dell is making the argument easier with the Dell E207WFP, a 20-inch wide-screen LCD that retails for $260. It surely won't win any awards for its average styling or lackluster performance, but we were pleasantly surprised to see its DVI input is HDCP compliant. Performance-wise, this set scored relatively low on our DisplayMate tests, so gamers, imaging professionals, and videophiles may want to look elsewhere. That being said, the low list price makes this an attractive option as a budget LCD where performance isn't a necessity.
The design of the Dell E207WFP will be familiar to those who already own Dell LCDs, which means it's average looking but not unattractive. The display can be tilted 4 degrees forward and 21 degrees back, but it lacks the ability to pivot or swivel, and its height is nonadjustable. The onscreen display controls are on the front of the panel, but we found navigation a bit tedious. Unlike some other displays we've seen, there are no extras like speakers or media card slots.
