I've got my mini hooked up to an 18" Dell LCD. Works great! I know I'm not answering your specific question, but thought I'd throw my 2 cents in.

Be careful with the 2005fpw. I've been reading that alot of people have been having backlight bleeding and dead pixel issues. Just thought I'd warn ya.

My Parents have a 17" Dell LCD display and the viewing angles aren't that hot on it. I suggest you see the Dell in person before buying it. I would recommend Apple, Samsung or Viewsonic over Dell.

Best of Luck!

Dell Monitors are really good for the money. 500 Bucks for a 20" LCD can't be beat. I wish Apple would drop the price on their Monitors another 100 bucks or more.

Make sure any display you buy 18" or up has a response time of 16ms or lower or you'll have bad ghosting.

Just took a look at that LCD display. If was paying that kind of money for a wide-aspect display, it would HAVE to do WUXGA resolution (1920x1200). (I had the 1920x1200 native resolution on my Dell Inspiron and I've been spoiled ever since!!)

I was also looking at the Dell W1900 19" LCD
http://www1.us.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/lcd_w1900?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs

but the resolution is only 1280x768. Aside from the better audio, would there be any advantages to purchasing this, setting aside cost differences?

Yes, but I was going to use the monitor mostly to view full-screen MPEG2 movies (both SD and HD) , so I was wondering if this would work better than the 2005FPW for this, as it also has DVI inputs.

FWIW: I have my mini hooked up to a 2005FPW, and it works great. Don't seem to have the blacklight or pixel issues some folks have.

It is very bright, even at lowest brighness setting, but I am living with that...
