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: 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: 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.
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.
Summary: Great Image, Big Size, Great Price. Only downside i've noticed is the power button sometimes take two or three clicks to turn on. Not sure if its just mine but it gets annoying sometimes. Other than that great monitor!
Summary: This product is pretty good. I like the size of the screen and the fact that though it's light, it still feels sturdy. The one thing I dislike about it is the location of the power button. Usually, I try to not touch the screen so I hold the corners instead, unfortunately, this is exactly where the power button is located (bottom-right) - so most times I inadvertantly press the power button. I use the monitor for photo editing, so this size comes in pretty handy.
Summary: I gave this 4/5 stars due to the fact that tweaking does take a bit with this monitor. After you calibrate on the monitor itself, you may need to do a bit more with your video card software when using a PC. That would be my only drawback for those that want a nice picture right out of the box. With gaming, this monitor is perfect. I experience no input lag and the graphics are sharp and crisp.
Summary: I tested this monitor only briefly, as by the time it was delivered I had already altered what features was I looking for in a new monitor, namely a preference for a 16:10 ratio. This Dell 23incher has 16:9, but for the short time I tested it out, I found few things to complain about. The overall build quality seemed good, the picture was indeed sharp and the colors looked pretty good. Viewing angles were good.
