Summary: The webcam and mic are a plus, and the monitor itself is quite bright and clear. I have owned this device for going on two years now. Pros: Webcam/mic big bright display. Correct absolute max brightness/contrast are 100brightness and 72 contrast. After 70-72 you will start to blow out the whites and lose color fidelity rapidly. I default the brightness at 90 and contrast at 50-64 depending on time of day.
Summary: Search on Google for "Del SP2309W buzzing noise". A lot of people, me included, had this monitor basically die not long after the warranty expired. Personally I think they're defective, I have LCD monitors years older that still work fine. I won't be buying any more Dell monitors, that's for sure.
Summary: I have over 50 of these monitors, most of them purchased new, a few refurbished ones. My user group has given my team a lot of great compliments on these units. Since they are not made for the commercial market, we had trouble getting quantities of these but in the end we were able to do it. The combination of a decent 23" screen with a built-in USB hub AND a webcam is unbeatable for my users' needs.
Summary: I've had this monitor for about 8 month now. Overall I'm pretty happy with this purchase. There is however one issue I'd like to bring to people's attention since on the Dell support forum they seem to refuse to acknowledge it as a defect. If you connect it to your computer via a HDMI cable instead of VGA or DVI, the display's energy saving mode will not engage when the computer turns the display output off or goes to sleep, instead you get a black screen (still fully...
Summary: Flawless. Just as good as I expected. If I have to point out something that I don't like, I think it would be the change between different video sources. You need to press two buttons to change from DVI to HDMI. And I think it would be convenient should only one button be used to change between video sources. Others it just is a great LCD panel with littel pixel distance. In general it is very good.
Beautiful screen, great webcam, good microphone, HUGE screen!!!

Summary: Ok, I'm over obsessing about this, but everything works pretty awesome. It came packaged well and I hooked it up. The power button was nifty and cool. When I turn the screen itself (not the CPU) on, it makes a cool sound and also the 5 buttons above it light up in a cool pattern. The webcam was pretty good, the microphone quality is ok, so I'm really liking this! This is a HUGE upgrade from a 19" screen that's all square, not widescreen.
