Summary: I own 2 of these in a dual screen display. They are both about a year old. About 3 months ago I noticed the monitor on my left (HDMI) randomly dimming depending on my mouse location. I've never messed with its settings, I just unboxed, hooked up and left it alone.
Summary: 21 months after purchase, a flashing pad lock showed up on the screen and no amount of effort or research on line has enabled me to fix this, despite numerous suggestions. The flashing pad lock is a known problem going back at least 3 years. Type "flashing pad lock" in Google to confirm this.
Summary: The first one I bought directly through DELL. Loved it so much that I bought another... even with me jumping platforms from PC (hate Dell anymore) to Apple, I still am going to buy another of these monitors. Great clarity. No buzz (I am very sensitive to sound). Great price.
Summary: I've had this monitor for a couple of months now. I don't want to jinx myself but this monitor is still going good. I don't need any high-def stuff. I just wanted a decent monitor and I'm OK with this so far. Price was on sale when I got it though made it better.
Summary: Plenty of features and it's a great size. I especially like the YPbPr video mode. It lets you connect component video to it through VGA. Lots of different types of connectors make it really easy to hook up whatever you want.
Summary: my brother got me this for my birthday cuz i needed a monitor for my new desktop. I ended up putting my ps3 on it also and i played the whole of Final Fantasy XIII on it. it could show its 1080p quality very well.
Summary: I've had this monitor for more than a year and it just gets better. initially i was using VGA which looked good. then i was using this with my xbox which looked really good too. then i upgraded my graphics card on my PC and started using DVI and still looked good.
Summary: The stand goes on fine but the instructions as to the tilt function were not in set up manual. You do have to press on the big dell symbol on the back and no force required it tilts. Sounds strange but it worked! Just press on the top part and it works...
