Summary: Highly recommend this monitor. I did a lot of research before buying and it really is one of the best buys for the money. It has the most flexible stand I've ever seen, the ability to flip it to portrait mode is really cool, it has a built in USB hub, lots of options for connections, and it looks great. Can't really ask for more any where close to this price.
Summary: The quality and the flow of my work was improved exponentially once this auxiliary monitor was put to use. In fact, it's become my primary monitor, especially when I'm editing photos. Clear and consistent image, no dead pixels, no glare, and a very cool temperature is kept even after long hours of use. I'd recommend this monitor to any demanding creative, especially if they're interested but might have a few reservations up front as admittedly I once did.
Summary: I bought this monitor because it was an appropriate size for my desk and was listed at a good price. I had bought this after reading the review, "Registration With Dell!!!" on March 19, 2013, which gave the details on how to register the monitor for warranty. 145/148 people have found this review helpful. So once the monitor came in the mail, the first thing I wanted to do was register it will Dell.
Still shipping Revision A00 -- How to Calibrate Two Monitors
Amazon Customer, Amazon
4 April 2014
Summary: Confirmed as of February 19, 2014. Dell is still shipping A00 revisions of these monitors. As a previous reviewer mentioned, these monitors have a stronger yellow tint than the later revisions. Having an earlier order (with later revision), the difference was pretty noticeable. I'd suggest if going for two monitors, to buy them AT THE SAME TIME.
Summary: At 2 bills, this is a phenomenal monitor (I paid one-hundred-ninety-nine U.S.). I am tempted to get another. It doesn't appear these are made any longer (written 27MAR14) but Amazon appears to have some left. My main monitor is the LG 27EA83. At $999 it was the monitor of the year or something like that - truly a beautiful and enjoyable monitor to look at. I use mine for photo editing. So that's where I am coming from in judging the Dell.
Summary: Before I start the in-depth review, let me show the stuff that most people actually care about: Pros: -Good Color -Good black levels (In center) -Nice Bezel & adjustability options -User-friendly UI -usb pass-through Cons: -Significant IPS Glow -Thick matte finish -Inconsistent panels In-Depth Review: I purchased this monitor several weeks ago hoping that it would be better than the previous Dell e198wfp that I had owned for years before.
Summary: I had really big concerns after reading about the matte screen and how it messes up the picture, however after getting it, I'm really glad I did. I guess it really does depend on personal preference, but the matte for me does not interfere with the picture at all. The ergonomic features make the extra 10-15 dollars worth it for this monitor.
Summary: I was almost scared off by some of the other reviews; but I'm glad I went ahead anyway. Here's my take: I don't know what all the fuss about the "A00 revision" is about. Mine shows that revision with a manufacture date of Oct 2013. I don't see any issues with it. There is no haze, and definitely no glare, which is important to me. I use this in my home office which has a great deal of ambient sunlight during the day.
Summary: Monitor arrived with no dead pixels. The matte display is bright and vibrant compared to the old monitor that this replaced. Unlabeled tactile buttons are in the lower right-hand corner with the bottom most being a blue power button that glows when the monitor is on, and a dim orange when it's on standby. The monitor easily attaches to a stand that is height adjustable that you can tilt and swivel.
