Summary: This is the lower grade model, so if your looking for the best picture for games this LCD might not be for you. If you are like me and just need some extra screen on the desk to work with then this is great. Alot of people complain about the stand, but it seems fine to me.
Dell E228WFP LCD Monitor - good image, bad hardware
26 April 2010
Summary: Apparently this series of LCD flat panel LCD monitor has a great image, but they made it with cheap or faulty parts, so it is inclined to require repair early. Repairs is fairly inexpensive - from an honest repair shop - because all they have to do is replace a couple of really cheap capacitors...
Summary: It take a while to tweak it to display comfortably to my eyes; but it has plenty of possibilities that with a good graphics card you can accomplish whatever suits your fancy. "Optimum Resolution" only supports a 60Hz refresh rate, so if you are sensative to the quivvering of such a low refresh rate...
Summary: This is a quality Flat Panel Monitor. It is superb at the highest resolutions, not as good at lower resolutions (with my NVidia GeForce4 MX 420 Card, with your card probably different performance) I bought it because I love my Dell Monitor at work, a 24" Flat Monitor which is simply incomparable.
Summary: I've desided to buy this monitor to use it for gaming and browsing. It's really nice monitor with cheap price. The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't have USB and Card readers.
Summary: Pros: 1680x1050 pixel resolution for clear, sharp images Offers 300 cd/m² brightness and 800:1 contrast ratio 5 ms response time enables crisp and clear images Viewing angles of 160° vertical and 160° horizontal DVI-D with HDCP. Cons: No height adjustable stand.
Summary: Purchased with a Dell computer. Monitor started going dark just after the 1 year warranty. Get about 1 hr of use, then have to let it cool down. This is a know issue with this monitor, just do a search for this monitor and backlight and you'll see all the problems.
Summary: This monitor doesnt have high contrast, but is just ideal for everyday viewing. My only complain is it lacks color richness. I also got this at walmart on sale (maybe because this is very old model) below $150 and for the price, i think its just right.
Summary: I've just received my monitor, last week. I love it! I had been using a 19in. monitor, this one is just so much bigger and the color is great. Set up was easy. I use it for games, music and basic internet. And I couldn't ask for a better monitor.
