Summary: Great picture, but you must have the right video card installed in your computer. If not, the picture will be stretched horizontally and no download will fix it. I have an old Dell computer and this is the wrong monitor for an old computer. Oops, wish I would have read something like this before I bought it.
Summary: 1) Though it would have come wiith a vga chord... NOPE (not much of an issue. just got a new one) 2) Refurbished but thought it was still good... NOT REALLY (the power chord given is either too small or power chord hole is irregular cause it's loose. You have to push the chord in more so the electricity would run through to power the monitor) 3)Other than that, it was good.
Summary: This is a great monitor, clear picture and color is super. I love the width but wish it was a little taller. Tat is my only drawback with it. I can't get as much on the screen as I would like and still be large enough for me to see. That being said it is a beautiful and very well working monitor. I would buy another Del but watch for size.
Summary: I don't understand the high ratings for this monitor. It is an inexpensive monitor and it shows. When I hooked this up to replace a CRT monitor, I had to make a lot of adjustments to get a decent display and even then, it's not good. The screen is much too light, even with turning down the brightness as far as possible. The text on the screen is not very clear - it displays like an old fashioned typewriter that needs the inked ribbon replaced.
Summary: What a great monitor. You can't beat it for the price, it gives great clarity and service. I have three of them and am well satisfied with each one of them. If you want a great monitor for a great price, this is the way to go!
