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.
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: I really wanted to join the 5 star bandwagon on these which is the primary reason I ordered two of them. Having some Dell panels that are many years old now I assumed these would be quality monitors. I'm no videophile just a casual user, but Immediately upon firing them up I noticed a yellowish tint in addition to some type of vertical thatching lines on both the displays. Googling this issue showed it has been a known problem for this monitor.
Summary: After my 7 year old monitor died last week, I found this one by reading reviews on Amazon and elsewhere. It came this afternoon. The hardest part of setting it up was getting it out of the box. I like to take things out gently, and store all the packing in the attic for future use. I appreciate the use of cardboard packing rather than a lot of molded foam (more environmentally friendly), but it's a very complicated 'origami,' and I finally tore up lots of tabs to get it...

Summary: I can calibrate this with my Spyder and the color is true. Most low cost monitors do not calibrate very accurately, you really need to buy a high end. This monitor works well with my photography.
Summary: Bought this monitor for photography work. Very bright, clear. Was able to calibrate to 97% with my Spyder Elite. Viewing off angle is great compared to my older monitor. Colours stay clear sharp and don't fade. Very reasonable price for such a monitor...many competing monitors for photography are twice the price (although they may get to 100% calibration). Stand works very well, easy to position, and holds it's position.
