Summary: I bought this monitor for the higher resolution, the wide aspect ratio, and the price, and as a replacement for an old CRT monitor. The fact that it has both VGA (regular) and DVI (newer, better) inputs was a nice bonus. However, the drivers disk that came with the monitor includes drivers specific to Dell machines.
Summary: This is DELL's consumer oriented bread and butter. It's cheap, it's large, it's pretty darn nice for its price. BUT, it loses tons of quality due to it being so cheap. Dell is using a 6bit display on these models, less colors, banding issues and more. Great budget LCD though!
