Summary: This was exactly the monitor I wanted because the resolution exactly matches the 13" Macbook Air I use. I had a very expensive EIZO monitor connected to the MBA for a while but because it's pixel ratio was not the same as the MBA, the text was always a bit soft. This monitor isn't particularly fancy but it can be adjusted vertically and is nice and sharp at 1440x900 which is really all I needed. For my simple requirements it was perfect.
Summary: I use two of these at work for a dual-monitor setup, and I am really pleased! I used to use one of these with a Viewsonic 19" widescreen and could immediately tell a difference between the two. The Viewsonic's colors were duller and were darker than the Dell's, and even on max contrast they still weren't as good.
Summary: I bought this as a second monitor for my pc to run dual displays. Has good pic, I do not game, but I feel it is a great monitor. Only paid $50.00. Better quality than my ASUS but really like both. The Dell E198WFP 19" Widescreen LCD Monitor is a great option. Who Knew?
Summary: I use this monitor at work as a second output for my laptop. I have some LG monitors at home. I can tell you without a doubt that this monitor is overly bright and everything appears whitewashed. I wouldn't even hit someone with this monitor. Don't buy this junk. There is a great review on kirsle.net if you google this monitor (E176FP) that speaks about the exact issue I'm having. This is hands down the worst monitor I've ever used.
Summary: The monitor functions well. I've used it with Linux (Ubuntu 10), WinXP and WinVista without any problems. For basic computer functions, it works great. It is plug and play. The one big flaw is that I have the Dell soundbar installed. The soundbar prevents the DVI plug from being inserted. I use this as a dual monitor setup with a Gateway 17" monitor with a 5:4 aspect ratio. I wanted to use the Dell as the primary monitor with digital input.
Summary: I have bought 3 of these great product and the price can't be beat Dell has never let me down yet .Now this thing wants me to make it longer .. i like short and sweet but it wants more and more B.S. i guess but the first line describes the product to a tee ..all this is just bs to satisfy ebays rules or whos ever ..
