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.

puching, Ebay

  • 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.

Beautiful, but had to return it

Brandon A. Goldberg, Amazon
24 March 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. Its built well, its heavy enough to feel like a great product, and the stand seems very stable. The major drawback I found, which caused me to have to return this monitor, is the piece of glass covering the front.

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. It allows you to sit back from the monitor and still enjoy high def. But the one thing I can't quite shake off is: There is like a 1/4" gap between the monitor panel and the glass. This causes internal reflection.

average monitor

apachekid, Dell

  • Summary: The monitor is very reflective, though I have not had a problem with this, if you are in a place with lots of light it will not be a good monitor for you.
