Summary: This monitor really is beautiful and provides crisp text and images. I searched hard to find a monitor with a matte finish screen and it was worth it (most of Dell's newer HD monitors have a glossy finish that's horrible for an office setting because you get glare from the lights). It has a really slim profile and the power and input cords face down, so if you can see the back of your computer, you don't see these cords sticking out at you (some monitors like Acers have...

Summary: I was already using a Dell 23" monitor that came with my desktop model when I purchased it. I wanted a second monitor so I ordered one just like I had, but a tad larger. I am so disappointed in this monitor. When we plugged it in, it was SO obvious the difference in the picture quality. The picture is not crisp at all. It will do as a second monitor but I would not recommend it to anyone. You get what you pay for!
Summary: Great monitor.Beautiful color and clarity.I suspect those who say it wouldn't power up didn't find the tiny on/off button on the bottom right. After I figured that out it was easy to adjust & worked fine.
Summary: Nice monitor, until you need technical support. Without an "Express Service Number" on the back, you cannot get technical support from Dell. Dell's website says monitors don't always have an express service number. But the tech support people cannot help/repair/diagnose your monitor without this "magic number".
