I shopped around before I purchased this awesome valued product on eBay!
30 July 2011
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excellent high-resolution LCD with both analog and DVI

Summary: My desktop typically has many programs open. The 1920x1200 max resolution is perfect to display lots of information at once. The ability to use either analog (VGA) or digital (DVI) connections is a plus-- something you don't see on some of the low-cost monitors from the "bargain" web sites. Only downside is no built-in speakers (but you can add the AS501 speaker bar).
Summary: I bought this monitor to replace my 19 inch Acer flat panel. I was amazed when I saw how sharp and clear this Dell is compared to the Acer. It really is like I bought a new, better video card, when all I did is get a new monitor. the same applications/games look so much better on this Dell it's fantastic. Also, the 24 inch size is better than I thought it would be. It's like seeing the world with two eyes instead of one.
Summary: first of all, it is not a ultrasharp. the seller misrepresented that little fact. contrast ratio is only 1000 to 1. dell had it on sale for less than i paid, but that is ok. this is a low end monitor. you get what you pay for. if you are use to cheap monitors, then you may like this one(at least the 24 inch part). i can not wait until i can afford a better monitor.
