"Good resolution, bad microphone and back from sleep"

tallia1, CNET
6 July 2011
  • Pros: I think the resolution is pretty sweet. The fact that it has a webcam + microphone and that it allows you to mount the DELL soundbar is pretty cool too.
  • Cons: 1) Microphone has sound quality issues, see here: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/peripherals/f/3529/p/19328047/19900956.aspx#19900956 2) Very poor vertical view angles... cannot watch movie properly when screen is on desk and I am on the bed

  • Pros: none - never received the monitor!
  • Cons: DELL acts like a big scam company: they take you money for the product they don't have, never ship you anything, and at the end you can't contact anybody!

"Not sure what this is good for"

Rethrick, CNET
6 March 2010
  • Pros: Images look ok on this. Film, pictures, that sort of thing are passable. It's actually not too bad looking on the desk. 2 megapixel camera is pretty good. The onscreen menu is easy to use.
  • Cons: Display of text is horrendous. This can be fixed by altering the contrast and the sharpness, but then it begins to look quite dull. Viewing angles are extremely poor. Unusable for me. The onscreen menu beeps are extremely annoying!

"Looks nice until you turn it on"

PetePhxAZ, CNET
17 September 2009
  • Pros: The overall look of the monitor is nice (until turned on), I had been looking for a larger glossy screen to replace my NEC 20WMGX2 glossy for a while. Unfortunately this monitor is definitely NOT it.
  • Cons: Color quality is bad, especially blues. All solid colors have obvious intensity change from top to bottom. No way to position to avoid. 2 areas of dead pixels, one upper-right. Second is a group. At least 3 dead in middle, reduced intensity surround.
