Gloss, crisp, but condensation on inside of glass!

LiamOB, Dell
11 February 2014
  • Summary: This arrived in the mail yesterday, but when I opened it, the inside of the package was damp and cold. Upon setting it up and turning it on, I noticed that I can barely see my cursor in one corner of the screen because there's condensation on the *inside* of the glass!

Glare? What glare?

rj "rj", Amazon
17 January 2014
  • Summary: I paid nearly $275 for this thing. I can almost shave in it when the sun is up. I replaced a 24" Asus (the one with no sound, but a camera) with it on a Mac. Appul is quite fond of shiny screens, so I guess I should have expected a light fight. Color is good but minimally adjustable. There are better 27" screens. The disclaimed "IPS effect" (light from the screen sides) is nothing compared to the reflection distraction. Unless you're in a dark room, of course.

It's a middle end monitor, you get what you paid for, but it's pretty fine.

  • Summary: Nice monitor, but is very glossy, it should be used in lowlighted ambients, pixel pitch a little big, 27" can easyly be a 16:10 rel. The usb connectors are some difficult to catch, if you are front of the monitor, you should stand up turn to the back of the monitor and put the usb device, it could be to the left or right side so it would be much more easy to use, has a nice touch with the headphones conector via hdmi. Everything else is fine.

Left side yellow tint.

Vladimir Fox, Amazon
5 October 2013
  • Summary: I got my monitor not to long ago. The color is great can't say more then that. On white backgrounds I noticed that the left of the monitor has a slight yellow tint. If your gaming or video watching you don't notice it, but when browsing the internet on white backgrounds the slight yellow tint starts to be come noticeable. I decided to return the monitor for a full refund and reorder hoping that the next monitor wont have this problem.

Outshines both in image quality and reflected light!! Should have listened to other reviews! HDMI overscan trouble.

Technologist "Neil", Amazon
2 October 2013
  • Summary: Having read the many reviews that mention the mirror-like reflective gloss finish of this beautiful display, I ordered one, knowing I could relegate it to a dark room where reflections would not be an issue, but I hoped that I could use it in my office. Well, no way, no way! Believe the reviews! You are going to see anointing at best reflections in any part of the screen that is dark where it essentially behaves as a mirror.

Too Much Glare

SanLouisKid, Dell
20 September 2013
  • Summary: On the negative side, it simply has too much glare in a lighted room. On the plus side (for Dell), I ordered the 27 inch Ultrasharp to replace it and that is a great, great monitor! Of course, it costs a few hundred dollars more. We use monitors all day, most days, so the glare was unacceptable on this one.
