Energy saving mode issue

Hao Yan, Amazon
11 April 2011
  • 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.

Unfortunately the USB hub built-in only works if the monitor is powered on. I'm not a fan of the touch (buttonless) power and settings buttons, but the on-screen menu system does work well. I, personally, would prefer physical buttons because it sometimes takes a couple of attempts to correctly hit the button.

Good non-professional monitor

Kevin Jones, Amazon
27 September 2010
  • Summary: This is a pretty good monitor for casual use. Very large, high resolution. I have two of them and no dead-pixel issues. However, these are not professional monitors. If you think you will eventually want a 2nd monitor, go with professional IPS displays because the color balance between the two is different, even with the color profile setup. The white balance is most noticeable. Fiddling with the color/contrast/brightness settings got them pretty close.
