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: I was hesitant in purchasing this monitor as there have been a number of reviews that mention yellow tinting and light bleed. Out of the box these were the first two things I inspected for. After some minor tweaking to the monitor settings I have a pretty decent match to my 15" macbook pro monitor, so I don't have any noticeable yellow tinting. I also used a black reference image to check for light bleed.
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: 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: 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: 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: I work in the graphic arts and use some very high end monitors. I wasn't expecting too much out of this but am pleasantly surprised by the color accuracy, and how well it holds contrast in the darker end of the spectrum.
