Though the 2707WFP has most of the features you'd consider essential in a display, it had some notable omissions. I'd much prefer two DVI connectors with a VGA adapter option rather than one of each. And no HDMI at this price seems a little stingy. I also found the color controls in the onscreen menus lacking--PC Normal, PC Red (warmer) and PC Blue (cooler) lack context in the world of photography or video and seem to just make the display really red or really blue. You can adjust the individual RGB outputs, but it's a pain. I would have preferred to have seen color temperature settings for the experts and meaningful presets for movies, graphics, work, and so on for more casual users. Thankfully, there are presets on the analog input: Standard and Vivid. Additionally, it does offer PC Mode and Mac Mode, which I assume refer to the standard 1.8 and 2.2 gammas, respectively. Unfortunately, the manual isn't specific--it explains modes with the unhelpfully tautological explanation of "To achieve the different color mode for PC and Mac."

Dell fares better on the nondisplay options, such as the built-in CompactFlash SD/MMC, Memory Stick, and SmartMedia card slots, which mount on your system when you plug in the upstream USB cable. For the most part this works smoothly, although we did run into a hiccup: the 2707WFP insists upon assigning four contiguous logical drive letters. If you don't have four together (say, because you've got a lot of pesky network volumes, like my roster of 13), you'll wonder where some of the card slots have disappeared to. Of course, this won't affect the majority of home users, but those on large corporate networks should take note. The card slots do perform quite zippily, though, as expected of a USB 2.0 transfer rate. There's also, as previously mentioned, a total of four USB 2.0 ports--two in the back and two in the sides. The side ports are especially nice for those who like to keep their actual PCs hidden; they can still snap in a USB flash drive without a lot of effort.
