I think it going to wait till after dinner. Have to go pick up the lady soon and don't even have somewhere to put it yet. The temporary desk I want to use has an old PC on it that I am recovering files from all day.

Goddamn Purolator.

They didnt even knock. My wife was off today and home all day, it showed up. I came home after work and found the sticker on the goddamn door.

I hate these dicks. Does it really save them that much time to not deliver shit as per the job they are ******* paid for to do?!

Guess I'll find out how sweet it is tomorrow. *sigh*

Next to a 3007WFP-HC, and a 2007FP behind it.
Sorry about the horrid white balance. Three different CFLs make for nasty auto WB.

Subjectively out of the box, the 2209WA is BRIGHT, and is cooler than the WFP-HC (to be expected due to different backlights). I have to set it to zero brightness.
Lag feels the same, looks no worse than my 2007FP S-IPS on first impression.

Text is CRISP on default settings. The DVI cable that comes is rather cute because the connector and cable are both half the size of the DVI-D that I use on the 30".

The base is a step back from the 07 series as I feel like I lose more desk space because it's a solid rectangle now.

I'm liking the all black casing, though it'll show dust far more easily than a silver base.

This isn't it's permanent home.. it'll be off to the other half's setup to replace a eye-straining too-bright 2005FPW.
