Summary: All of my Monitors are Dell. Throughout the years they have been reliable, and have performed perfectly. I did own a Acer 17" LCD, which was reliable and had decent colors as well, no complaints. I needed a LED Widescreen for my home recording PC in my music room.
Pros: Clear Crisp Colors, Plenty of Depth - Deep Blacks, Easy to use Adjustment buttons located on the right side of the Monitor, Even Easier Adjustments via Dell Software
Cons: DVI Cable isn't included. Wha??? Gee Dell you couldn't kick in a DVI Cable? I'm not a fan of external power supplies, but I guess they do offer design benefits, lower power, weight, etc
Summary: The buttons for on/off and config are kind of in a meh spot on the right side of the monitor but it's not enough of a paint to make it a con. I would recommend this all day long. I'll update this review if I have any troubles with it
Pros: Colors are great, the glossy screen makes everything look so much better than my old matte finish monitor. The design of it leaves a lot of bulk out so it has a nice sleek almost borderless bezel.
Cons: Where the inputs on the monitor are are kind of a tight fit, bulkier cables will not fit or have a VERY tight fit. I had ordered a Rosewill RCW-401 DVI cable and it took some force for it too fit because its such a beefy cable. Took 1 egg off for this because it's a decent con.
Summary: I got two of these for gaming/CAD work/general use. They look very nice on my desk and have a pretty solid feeling to them. I'm looking at getting a third when I get a new GPU this fall-- I got exactly what I was expecting, and have zero regrets with this purchase.
Pros: Very solid monitors for the price. *Crisp 1080p *Great colors *Nice and bright *Relatively thin bezel-- and very unobtrusive *Buttons feel nice *Good for multimonitor setups *Cheap cheap cheap-- I got them for less than $100 a piece, which is a great deal IMO
Cons: If you're looking for more features, this likely isn't your cup of tea. It has a relatively stripped down feature set-- no VESA, no HDMI.
Summary: If I had been able to preview these monitors before I bought them, I would have bought two of these. My higher spec games are Diablo 3, Bioshock Infinite, Assassin's Creed 4 (all run on Max settings) and Thief (high) and this is fast enough for those games without question...
Pros: I was trying to decide between this and an Acer 24" VA monitor.I wanted to try IPS but also wanted the bigger screen and faster response time of the Acer, plus I had heard about IPS's weak blacks and light bleed issues. I game a lot so had trepidation about whether this monitor would meet my need...
Cons: No HDMI (no speakers and only 1080P, don't need HDMI) or VESA, but for the price, that's perfectly fine. Not sure why a 1080P monitor would even ship with a VGA cable but the world rarely makes sense.
Summary: Luckily I had an extra DVI cable to use. This doesn't come with one. They're only about 8$ anyway.
Pros: This monitor is fantastic, the bezel is thin, great 1080p display and it is IPS after all. No problems with it what so ever and it has a 7ms response time which I can't really see a difference. It's a very nice clear monitor and it is a glass panel so be sure to not be around a light source. I go...
Cons: No cons that I can think of. The buttons on the side aren't a hassle for me, easy navigation, just use your 4 fingers, it isn't a bothersome as some put it. The stand is nice, no wobbling as I tend to be careful around my rig.
Summary: I hate to return this monitor coz I like it but sad to say I have to return it.. looking for a new brand keeping away with this model. I always trust Dell but this time dell must address this issue
Pros: I like this monitor the glossy screen like imac but other user find glossy a disadvantage, -it's thin slim monitor -I like the fine color
Cons: I'm glad I found the issue earlier where it is still covered by a limited return warranty. Researched about this model that it has an internal issue with this kind of model, the issue was the monitor just Turn Off/ON in seconds and back again. if you encounter this issue, return it asap
Summary: HDMI to DVI cables exist and working great - cheap on NewEgg and other placed. If you can't survive with an HDMI cable - this monitor is still an option. Calibrate your computer to get the most out of this monitor.
Pros: Great back light, nice color control, glossy screen lets the colors pop. Controls are simple and easy to get to - the buttons are on the side and out of the way. The power LED is a very muted white or slightly blue LED in the lower left corner that you forget about unless the entire room is dark ...
Cons: Some may not like the glossy screen due to glare from light sources in their environment - don't buy a glossy screen if you work with daylight windows behind you or have lights you can't turn off or move (office) that are positioned in a way to cause glare. The lack of an HDMI port is easily fixed.
