Moisture can go inside the monitor and form foggy spots

CIvilGuy, Amazon
22 December 2014
  • Summary: Picture quality is not very consistent. Two monitors, both connect to my graphic card via DVI cable, same setting, but they show different color. One is white, and the other is much more yellow.. maybe I am just not good at how to set up the monitor, I can still bare with the dismatch of two monitors. But, how can they both "leak" water moisture into the screens?

Glare is hard to deal with

Richard H. von Lehe, Amazon
23 January 2014
  • Summary: This monitor was purchased for me to do work as a software engineer. I wasn't asked for input on which monitor I wanted and now that I've used the monitor for several weeks, I wouldn't recommend it, at least not for use as a screen for editing text. I have tilted the monitor downward as much as I can and that eliminates the glare that comes from direct sunlight outside.

Not a good 2nd monitor for Alienware laptop

Jsou, Dell
23 January 2014
  • Summary: It's beautiful, has great clarity and color (though highly reflective screen)and was a great price (Black Friday deal). However, I cannot get it to work with my son's MX-11 Alienware laptop. It does not matter which type of connection I am using, the monitor will not recognize the laptop and all I get is a message on it that states there is no connection. I am still trying to get it to work and will update the review once it's operable.

Great monitor EXCEPT too reflective!!

Nick Papajorjio, Amazon
28 April 2013
  • Summary: This is a great monitor with very impressive picture quality. But, I am going to have to return it because the screen has a piece of reflective glass over it, which makes it impossible to play any games that involve dark environments without turning off all the lights and drawing black-out shades over the windows. Even during normal use, the glossy reflection is very annoying.

Glass edge to edge causes unwanted glare

JimE2013, Dell
15 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought two of these monitors and am using a duel stand. When I unpacked the monitors, I was impressed. Beautiful finish - very similar look to an Ipad. But when I turned it on in my office with windows, I noticed significant refection and glare. It was not offset by a particularly bright and crip screen. The resolution is OK. I am returning them and shopping for something else.

Yellowing

mmntech, Dell
9 February 2013
  • Summary: Bought this monitor for my home studio to do video and photo editing, as well as a little gaming. Has a slower response time than TN displays but adequate enough for most games. Okay by me. You don't get IPS for speed, you get it for the best image quality. Definitely a good value for such a large IPS display, especially if you can get it on sale. Colour looks very good, except for one issue.

Monitor is great but adapter doesn't work properly

VS, Amazon
21 September 2013
  • Summary: The adapter makes a hissing sound and I am afraid that there will be an electric issues which will damage the monitor. The adapter's connection is not tight and the electricity flow keeps getting interrupted easily.

Esperienza pessima

SinceI'veBeenLovingYou, amazon.it
18 August 2013
  • Summary: Monitor tutto sommato piacevole ed esteticamente appagante. Il vetro ha dei pro e dei contro: colori lucidi, vivi, e immagini reali, ma molto riflettente. Il mio presentava alcuni granelli di polvere all'interno non rimovibili senza togliere il "vetro", perciò l'ho sostituito. Amazon come sempre impeccabile. Monitor consigliato per uso multimediale, a meno che la stanza non sia eccessivamente illuminata.

Sehr teuer und schlechter als mein Vorgängermodell auch von Dell, aber 5 Jahre alt

Kuno Herrmann "kunoherrmann", Amazon
13 July 2013
  • Summary: Anschluss und Lieferung ok. Nachdem der Bildschirm in Betrieb war, wurden die dunklen Bildteile mit winzigen kleinen grünen Blinkpunkten übersät. Ich habe versucht das über die möglichen Einstellungen zu unterbinden, aber kein Erfolg. Außerdem wurde in Verbindung mit diesem Monitor ein Lautsprecher Set angeboten, welches ich kaufte. Das passt überhaupt nicht, geht nur mit Kreppband am Monitor zu befestigen und muss separat aus und eingeschaltet werden.
