Good for the money you pay, not the best though

Spencer, Amazon

  • Summary: Everyone keeps saying that there is a really bad glare off the screen, which is true if you have sunlight shining in on it. as soon as you eliminate the light, the screen is awesome. Lots of screens are like that these days, people need to get over it. this is the first large screen monitor that I have bought, so I was a little surprised at how pixelated it looked at first, but then you get used to it. All in all, decent screen for the money you pay. Im happy with it.

Impressive resolution; very wide; not very tall

  • Summary: This monitor has worked well for me. The resolution is sharp and the colors are rich. My one complaint is the aspect ratio. It is very wide, but is not very tall. The aspect ratio works well for seeing two programs at once (e.g., a pdf and a word file). When just viewing a word file, the short height is not ideal (and leaves a lot of extra space on the sides). Overall, I am still happy with this high-quality monitor.

glossy

NerdDoc, Dell

  • Summary: Great monitor and an even better price. I have several of them now. The only downside is they are horrid with glare. I have had to get a sticky glare film on one that is near a window. Other than that I love them. They set up very easy, and have multiple options for hooking them up. I would like the ability to mount them in portrait orientation. It would be a very simple change in the base design, but most monitors do not do this.

Incredible Monitor - Very Glossy - Great at Night

Sean565, Dell
8 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought two of these monitors several months ago and was surprised how glossy the screens are. You have to strategically position the screens to reduce the glare in normal lighting conditions. With no light or low light (especially at night) these screens are incredible. The picture is bright and resolution shows every detail.

Very clear and sharp display but a little too reflective

Tom Servo, Amazon
1 January 2014
  • Summary: Like others have said this monitor has a lovely display image except for the reflections if viewing dark/black background images. I find this is distracting even in a room with subdued light. The monitor screen is extremely glossy and is difficult to eliminate all reflections. Adjusting controls is via touch sensitive areas of the monitor frame, there are no physical buttons and no tactile feedback. THE GOOD: + Image is excellent, especially for text.

Could have been 5 Stars

DellDough, Dell

  • 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.
