Summary: I got this monitor 2 weeks ago and I don't really know what the big deal is with some people complaining about the monitor being glossy or having some reflection issues. I am happy with this purchase. The only issue I had noticed right away with this monitor is the lack of USB. Overall, I haven't really seen what it can do because I bought this monitor with a brand new Alienware Desktop PC and 2 way Bose speakers.
Summary: I almost didn't buy this because of negative reviews about glare, but I'm glad I did. Glare is not a problem (My monitor doesn't face windows). Not any worse than any other glass screened devices such as my iPad. I'm totally satisfied with the display, although I'm most happy viewing from at about 24" due to everything appearing bigger on the large display. I got the best picture (for me anyway) using a DVI cable.
Summary: This monitor is fantastic, the colors are great for gaming, the stand is sturdy and does not wobble on my desk. Many reviews did not like the glass front of the monitor; however, I love it. The only minor gripe I have is that I find it difficult to touch the correct spot to turn off the monitor.
Summary: Amazing screen. I have bought Dell monitors before, but this one is awesome. Super clear and it's huge. The best part is the base is super solid. Recommend to anyone. The 27" is perfect size as well.
Summary: Only 1080p, that means at 27inches, all the font is going to be big, but it is not as fuzzy. Your resolution matters at this size and it doesn't make sense to buy a 1080p, you must have the 2560 x 1440. This is a cheap buy because of that reason, so please be aware of that before you buy, you just get bigger font with this not more font on the screen. Otherwise, this is an excellent display, the monitor itself works well, the flat glass screen is really good.
Summary: Really sharp image, amazingly rich and vibrant colors, wonderful design (I'm a big fan of edge-to-edge glass displays). This monitor is one heck of a quality product, especially for that price ! Now, here's a few things to remember if you want to enjoy it to its full potential : -Obviously, it's highly reflective, so just make sure you have no window or strong light source right behind you, and you should be ok.
Summary: Great monitor. Looks very similar to the Apple Cinema Display in terms of the glossy finish. I like that the stand is removable and is easily detached from the screen. Only problem is the resolution, if you need high resolution this isn't for you.
Summary: This same exact thing just happened to me. I purchased this monitor January 25th, and it has been running solid ever since. I woke up this morning and turned the monitor on and what do I see, a nasty smudge on the top of the screen that is under the glass. It looks like when condensation accumulates in headlights that have a crack. I've never mishandled or dropped or so much as bumped into this monitor because it's that precious to me.
LATEST BATCH OF MONITORS AROUND 11/01/13 yellowish less bright.

Summary: I have noticed on purchasing the second monitor from Amazon that the second screen is not nearly as bright. The screen is also a yellowish tint and looks terrible in comparison to the first one I ordered a few months ago. The actual encasing looks the same but the Screen quality has either switched manufacturers or Dell is letting the Quality slip in an attempt to ship more monitors.
Summary: Great whites, great resolution. The only problem is that the glare is a little much with this glass screen. I have windows behind my monitor and the light bouncing around the room still greatly hinders visibility during the day.
