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: I bought this monitor direct from Dell where incidently it was quite a bit cheaper (approx $250). I'm not surprised that the other reviewer doesn't like the speakers as it doesn't come with speakers (or at least it was an option at Dell and if you read the product features it doesn't mention speakers). There are two things that make this an excellent monitor for some people.
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 written down some pro's and con's: Pros: - Beautiful color, amazing clarity... looks good - Big display - Cost isn't terrible - Cool touch buttons - Stand is HIGHLY flexible (PERFECT stand) - Monitor looks sleek and sexy, thin and shiny - Glossy screen makes colors pop - Webcam included - Cord organizer in the back Cons: - Higher than HD resolution is good for multi-tasking, but it stretches your videos (HD and DVD) and therefore the quality of your videos goes...
