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.

Uneven light

Mark H., Newegg
20 February 2013
  • Summary: I'll keep it and generally enjoy it, but for $300 the light should be even. Hopefully I'll forget about it over time.
  • Pros: Gorgeous and big
  • Cons: Uneven light across the screen - thanks to Dixon and others below for pointing it out - it is very subtle (I had not noticed it) - but the left 3/4 is a little dimmer and yellowish, and the right 1/4 is brighter and blueish. This is not for a photographer needing full control in editing, but it w...

Dell S2740L (HDMI)

Anonymous, Newegg
5 February 2013
  • Summary: * The screen is slightly more reflective than standard glossy. * Not really sure how the 3 Year Warranty works, when I check the monitors service tag on Dell.com it says I have until April 7, 2014.
  • Pros: * Image quality. * Comes with software which will auto adjust the displays color, brightness, and contrast depending on the application you are using, it can also create screen positions for open windows dragged to certain parts of the screen. * HDMI, DVI, and VGA. * IPS Panel, LED Backlight. * P...
  • Cons: * The screen is brighter in the top left corner and darker in the bottom right, as others have pointed out. * Minor ghosting.

Glare? What glare?

rj, Amazon
27 January 2013
  • 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.

Beautiful, but had to return it

Brandon A. Goldberg, Amazon
26 January 2013
  • Summary: First lets discuss picture quality. This monitor looks amazing. Its extremely bright, the colors are sharp, everything looks great. It was a huge improvement over the Dell 2409W I have. The outside of the monitor looks great too.

Left side yellow tint.

Vladimir Fox, Amazon
26 January 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...

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

Technologist, Amazon
26 January 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!

Colors not even

Matt S., Newegg
25 January 2013
  • Summary: Stand can be taken off, hides a standard mount with four screws - nice! The reflective screen surface might be disturbing if your room is not dark.
  • Pros: Crisp and clear, nice on screen display.
  • Cons: Had to return it. On the right side about a third of the screen was a bit blueish, compared with the left side, which was a bit yellowish. So it faded from yellow (left) to blue (right). Tried in daylight and in the evening, separate angles (could have been the window), but could not fix it. If c...

Pretty Annoying Flaw, Still on the Fence About Keeping It

Jonathan Wainman, Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: Everything about this monitor is beautiful. I typically don't use glossy screens, but immediately found it attractive and sharp. After gaming on this monitor and watching a blu-ray movie I am convinced it is perfect for home desktop use.
