Summary: I bought this monitor to replace an aging 21" one and, while I'll admit that the colors are somewhat washed out (this took a lot more work to correct than I would have liked), overall it is a great monitor. I ended up keeping my 21" monitor and run a dual-monitor setup now with this as my main and it's a great setup. I only wish I had bought two...
Summary: When I received this monitor I looked like it was packaged well. When I opened it, the border around the screen was cracked in the top left corner. Screen was not damaged however, the border was.
Summary: After having looked at other monitors of this size in retail stores, I was expecting Dell to have equal or better screen quality per its description. This monitor is definitely not as crisp of a picture as some of the other brands of equal pricing. I am using it for work, not gaming.
Summary: I ordered two of these. And, it made a lot of change to how I program. I hope they last for next couple of years. Also, it greatly improved my TV viewing. The website does not mention that it comes with VGA cables and I ordered a extra piece. Wish that was included in the product info.
Summary: I bought this rather than the newer edition of the same monitor due to it's much lower pricepoint. I could not be happier with it. I am an IT professional so I use this 8-12 hours a day. It is very sharp, bright, and being a 24-inch, very roomy. I often run two virtual machines next to each other on this monitor and it's large enough both are usable. It's a good looking monitor on my desk, very sleek.
