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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
