Summary: I needed a second monitor. My first monitor is a Dell S2309W 23" so the S2409W was the logical choice. They are almost identical. It took only a few minutes to attach and it works fine. It has one slight flaw that I didn't notice for several weeks. It is as though the screen has slipped down in the frame. There is about a 1/64" black line at the top of the screen with a little space above it. It does not affect the operation at all. I would buy it again.
Summary: I bought Dell S2409W 24 inch LCD Monitor maybe 2 month ago and was immediately impressed about it because it was very beautyfull outside.When I turned on I had more impression how the biggest monitor is I ever had.I was used 19'inch Acer and after 3 hours working on the computer my eye's was so tired, but now I working much more times on the computer and my eyes doesn't tired at all.
Summary: I have an older PC and I am not a gamer and I don't stream videos etc. My main reason for buying a larger monitor was for larger character size and larger ICONs. This monitor fulfils that need and I no longer have to lean over my desk to read blogs, emails or news sites. Another plus is that the footprint depth appears to require less space than my old 17" LCD, so I have more room on my desk.
Summary: For a 24' monitor, you cannot find a better product in the market right now. I am not a expert or a fan of display. I mainly used this monitor to watch movie and do some programming, and it works perfect. On the other hand, this display has HDMI, VGA and DVI ports, which is very important. Most of the cheap 24' monitors in the market only have two ports among three(I listed above). For my opinion, it is maybe the best choice for this price.
Summary: This is a really nice monitor. I love the HDMI port, I can just plug my DVD recorder into it and get HD TV right on the monitor. It has a really nice picture. I also use my Xbox 360 with this and the size of this monitor is great. One thing I didn't like is there is no power connection for the speaker bar, so I had to get an adapter. The frame is a nice and sleek black color. Overall I really like this monitor, and give it 4 out of 5 stars.
Summary: For 189 usd you wont find another monitor that bring you the size and features this monitor give you. I have my computer in the dvi, the ps3 in the hdmi and my netbook to the vga. Changing from 1 source to another is just 1 button away, dont have to enter any menu. Love it.
