Solid Purchase

Najja, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this monitor a few years ago and I can say that its held up pretty well. I do feel like its tinted the tinniest bit red at this point but its only really noticeable when I compare it to the new second monitor I have right beside it. After all these years I have zero dead pixels and haven't had any chips or cracks in the plastic. Its probably not as nice as some other monitors but those are all going to be more expensive.

I shopped around before I purchased this awesome valued product on eBay!

  • Summary: I am extremely pleased with my purchase of this Dell UltraSharp E248WFP 24 inch LCD Monitor. It delivers sharp images in large and crisp colors. I bought it because my old monitor quit working. And yes, I would recommend this product to a friend. There is no comparison of this monitor to its forerunner.

Good for 2 Years

  • Summary: I've had this monitor for about 3 years. It started having problems at about 2 years. It started with one quarter inch think vertical line and now has hundreds of them. They aren't dead pixels. They are almost like tiny bands of film over the monitor that makes the colors lighten. They are almost like smears. I've tried everything to make sure it is the monitor and not the computer or video card. The smears do not move with the picture.

E248WFP : Solid, reliable, and decent specs.

quwert95, Ebay
1 October 2010
  • Summary: I have two of these monitors so I have a lot of screen real estate to work with and it's very nice to have them be matching with small borders in between. The E248WFP was from the generation just before the 16:9 craze and when 16:10 was in good supply and demand. The E248WFP has really great viewing angles and colors. The E248WFP is also one of the few good monitors out there that has a matte finish, which is superior to glossy in every way except colors at odd angles.

Do yourself a favor and do not buy this monitor

M. Paganini, Amazon
28 October 2009
  • Summary: It's tempting. A 24" Dell monitor for this price with a solid warranty. What could go wrong? This line of thought put me in the difficult situation I find myself with this monitor today. Until you plug it in, you're sure you made a good deal. Not too shabby. When you plug it in, the disappointment begins... First, it's a TN panel. If you don't know what it is, look around the web. Most LCD monitors these days are TN panels for a reason: They're cheap.

Works well!

gmgesink, Ebay
24 January 2009
  • Summary: I like this Dell monitor. I have it installed on my old dinosaur Compaq Presario and it works very well even at a lower resolution. It was plug and play no problem. I purchased it to replace the 17" Benq flat panel monitor I was using to update my desktop workspace. I have a Dell 37" HDTV that I'm impressed with, so purchasing this product was an easy decision.

Hardcore

  • Summary: Like a sports car, this monitor doesn't come with many options like cupholders, HDMI plugin, or TV tuner. It is a barebones monitor that simply delivers quality images at a reasonable price!

Best monitor for the price!!!

raxsedo539, Ebay
4 December 2008
  • Summary: This monitor is perfect for gaming, it is simple and cheap. It has all the performance qualities that you would want in a gaming monitor and it is REALLY big. Going from 17" to 24" is quite a difference. I don't find any downsides other than you have to adjust the color settings because the stock settings are terrible.

Worst Monitor I have ever owned!!!

Seantronik, Amazon
5 November 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this item in April 2008 as new. The display now has a nice long strip of dead black pixels since early October that got worse and worse throughout October. It may eventually reach up to the top of the screen as it has been getting much worse. I have never had problems this bad with any other monitors I have owned. Please stay away from this model as it may have problems such as this.
