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: 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.
Summary: This thing is beautiful. I bought it from Dell with my new desktop and really like it a lot. It is huge! (I am coming from a 19" 4:3 LCD monitor.) The picture on this is crisp and the colors are very accurate. I could look at this all day (and I do.) The size is large enough to easily work on two documents side by side. I have mine mounted on a wall swivel arm I got very cheaply from eBay. The included stand takes up a lot of deskspace and is limited in movement.
Summary: For the most part - I agree with what others have said about the quality of this monitor. But I have had an exemplary customer experience when returning another Dell 23" monitor bought from the "Amazon Marketplace". The first monitor was only so-so and had a hardware problem. I called and tried through the "Marketplace Vendor" and could tell immediately that getting my problem solved through them - was going to be the long way around the block.
Summary: I've had this monitor since January 2010, and I love it. The colors are great, the 2ms response time is perfect for gaming, and the viewing angles are decent for a TN panel. Love the 4 extra USB ports (2 on the left in the back, and two along the left-edge of the monitor). The 2048x1152 resolution on the 23" screen lets you snap two documents side-by-side, like any computer running Windows 7 and up (or Vista with an AeroSnap mod), but guess what?
