It's the A00 version. Ordered it June 7th, got it on June 9th. Let me tell you, after reading the reports on various internet forums about the banding issues, I was really worried. I didn't even want to take it out of the box when I got it. I just decided what the hell, I can return it if there is a problem. So I plug it in via DVI on my XPS M170, and I didn't see any problems. So I get my friends 20" widescreen gateway lcd and connect it to my other laptop and put the gateway and my 2407 side by side and compare, no banding issue at all. I've done nothing but game on it, no banding issues at all. In fact, everything looks stellar. Colors couldn't be smoother or brighter.
All this has made me realize something about the internet.
1 - People with problems yell the loudest.
2 - People without them get drowned out.
3 - Many people complaining about the banding issue, spreading the hysteria did not even have the monitor, it just became a he said, she said issue. (Note, i'm not saying this wasn't an issue, because, some people did have banding problems - that's a fact)
3 - Mass hysteria can create unnecessary panic.
4 - Things are never as bad as they seem.
5 - If there is a problem, you can send the thing back and get your money back or get a new monitor. I don't get the madness.
I mean, I remember when the xbox 360 came out, and everything I heard on the internet was overheating and all these 360's were dying and not working. Well, i'm on my launch 360, and it's been working strong. Most of my friends are gamers, and we all got the 360 at launch, not one of us has had any problems. The only guy who had a problem had one because his dog pissed on his 360.....lol.
Take it for what it's worth.
