great aesthetic design, great color accuracy, extremely fast input response

Alexander P., Newegg
5 July 2015
  • Pros: -edge to edge glass looks amazing in person, cures the dull, grainy, washed out look you get with anti-glare coatings -incredible input lag performance for an IPS display: just 2ms relative to a 60hz CRT -excellent color accuracy when using custom RGB settings (99r, 91g, 95b) -native 1920 x 1080 ...
  • Cons: -unexceptional motion clarity due to "inverse ghosting" effect -display exhibits an odd color uniformity issue where the left side is slightly red shifted and the right side is slightly blue shifted

Alec Cooper, Amazon
27 June 2015
  • Summary: pro: 1 good color for general use 2 AWESOME warranty and customer service, mine was broken (probably my own problem) and all the free exchange process only took days, also the customer service guy is located in Philippine, which has no accent at all, you can easily understand what he is saying and...

Dull colors, im not impressed

Lynn, Amazon
13 June 2015
  • Summary: Well I will start off as saying, I went from my HP vivid color monitor, to this. The color is not anywhere close to how vivid my HP was. I was expecting some loss of colors but this is a bit more then I like. Very dull colors.

Awesome turnaround

Doris H., Newegg
18 May 2015
  • Summary: Zake was amazing. I needed the order turned round quickly an they accommodated. They even acknowledged my request to expedite it thru with an email. Great job all!
  • Pros: This turned out to be more than I expected for the price. Very functional, easy to use. I have it connected to 2 different computer sytems, and can easily change the inputs thru the front button panel.
  • Cons: It has no anti-glare. I notice it at first and after a few minutes I'm no longer aware of it.

Dell S2740L after 1 year

Susan H., Newegg
25 January 2015
  • Summary: I have a really nice monitor at work, and was worried this monitor would wind up being inferior at its lower price point. Instead, this monitor blows my work monitor out of the water.
  • Pros: The color quality is unbelievable on this screen. Its also bright, sharp, no blur or anything - video games and movies look great. (I play Titanfall pretty often on it - lots of super fast motion).
  • Cons: The screen has a very shiny finish which reflects light sources behind you. I had to put drapes over the windows in the back of my home office. Very reflective.

Dissatisfied - Returned

John R., Newegg
11 December 2014
  • Summary: I already own one of these that I have been using happily since 2012. It is possible that this one was just a lemon but I am not inclined to try again. Two years is a long time and perhaps something has changed. I have returned it and asked for a refund.
  • Pros: it is big and bright with expected connection choices. It has a glossy screen. The one I own (see below) is beautiful and easily the nicest monitor I have ever owned. To put that into perspective, I have had a personal computer of some sort since 1986.
  • Cons: The brightness was low on the left and high on the right. The color was slightly more yellow on the left and more blue on the right. Then within the first week I started getting stuck pixels. I was worried that it would soon crash and burn completely.

Best monitor I've owned

Sarah F., Newegg
21 July 2014
  • Summary: When you get this monitor, I highly recommend you lower the brightness. Factory default was something like 80%, I lowered it to 60% which is still plenty bright for my environment. I'm usually not a fan of capacitive-touch buttons like this monitor uses for the power and menu controls.
  • Pros: Glossy screen, edge-to-edge glass. This is going to be the reason you love this monitor or hate it. If you have a light source from behind you, you'll probably hate this monitor because of all the reflections. But if you can control the lighting from behind you then this will be the clearest and ...
  • Cons: My biggest complaint is the included cables - Dell gives you a VGA cable but no DVI or HDMI? Are you kidding me Dell!?! This is 2014, VGA is all but dead. Also, anyone spending money on a higher-end monitor like this isn't going to be using VGA. Spend the extra 50 cents and include DVI and/or HDM...
