Summary: I have had this monitor since it came out years back. This monitor has gotten the job done, and I have never had any problems with it. It continues to produce to this day. Great monitor for the price!!
Summary: I don't know what others see in this monitor. The Ghosting is horrific on this monitor 1/3 of the text looks like it is smudged, another 1/3 of the text looks like it had a negative Anti-Aliasing effect to the text. The contrast is not that great either. Also the viewing angles are not that great.
Not necessarily the best, though still quite reasonable.

Summary: This monitor, quite honestly, is not the best monitor out there. The contrast, compared to many displays today, is rather poor, though graphics drivers can fix the contrast. The resolution of the monitor, 1440x900, is alright, though be aware there are better options out there.
Summary: I now have three of these monitors side-by-side on my setup using two graphics cards. What can I say, (1440*3)X900 is a very good resolution to have, well, using DisplayFusion to have one wallpaper span the three with a start menu on each, and each monitor with its own start menu setup, but meh,...
Summary: I purchased this Dell SE198WFP LCD monitor new as part of a Dell computer system in mid-2007. I recently upgraded to a new computer running Windows 8 (without a monitor) and successfully connected this old monitor. Thus, this monitor has been in nearly daily use for almost six years.
