Summary: I really like this monitor, despite a defect upon receiving it. the base was slightly bent, and required a little rigging to get the monitor level horizontally. After the rigging, it looks great and works as it should all at a good price.
Summary: I've found this another Great product recently purchased. Often read customers review, look closely at brand name. My new monitor arrived timely fashion. Easy to install , bright colorful screen! Try it...
Summary: The old MicroSoft "plug and pray" worked well. No setup, just plug into the computer and electrical outlet and it was running. Picture clarity was very sharp. It is a great replacement monitor.
Purchased short time ago and failed (30days) + or -
29 August 2013
Summary: Purchased and used a short time. I'm not on my computer every day, so not many hours. Monitor is defective will stay on for 3min. and goes for 2min. It is not in the settings in the computer or monitor but acts like a thermal reset. It happens over and over. Can only use for 3min. bursts of use. Sure it will fail completely soon. Would not purchase again. _____*****Did not have to purchase again Amazon replaced it !
Summary: While there are 23" monitors for roughly the same price, I bought this monitor for my moms new PC setup. I was sure to get a monitor with mounting bracket holes on the back and DVI connection. The colors out of the box were fine, and with a little bit of finagling was able to get a great crisp color on win 7 ultimate. I also of course bought this monitor for the name on the box. Dell has always made quality monitors in my opinion. They just last forever.
Summary: Great product for the price. Large enough so I can work at home but doesn't crowd my desk. Screen quality is fantastic. Also -- I was able to plug the screen directly into my laptop and extend my desktop without needing any additional cords -- I wish I had know this before I wasted $8 on a HDMI cable that Amazon recommended I add on. Booo!
Summary: I needed a widescreen monitor for our Dell XPS and this product fit the bill. It is Dell so the whole system retains its Dell brand status. It was easy to fire up. I did not even need to use the program disc that came with it. The color, resolution, picture quality are all fine. It is a perfect size for the space and distance from the screen. The only thing I was not crazy about was how it was packaged by Amazon. I left separate packaging feedback.
