Summary: I was looking for a monitor for everyday use like gaming, coding, and internet with my Macbook Pro. Another major feature I was looking for was low power, as I'll be living for some time in a rural area powered by solar panels. To be 100% honest, this is not a perfect monitor. After all it has an e-IPS panel, which is better than TN, but not as good a "real" IPS.
Summary: After researching carefully, I purchased this to replace two smaller, aging LCD panels that were running off my Mac Pro. (The theory behind the reduced dimension is that I'll better use my pixels and focus more, which has been true though irrelevant.) I was also considering an Apple Cinema Display, as they're gorgeous and perform admirably. I'm glad I decided to go with this UltraSharp over the Cinema Display for several reasons: 1. Value.
Three times than the monitor I'm used to and NEED!!!

Summary: Hi - I'm a composer of classical music - I don't really need a lot of color for my daily work - it IS nice for Pinterest.com, Facebook, and other visual applications. The screen can be positioned landscape or portrait, and for those musicians writing an orchestra score, you easily create an 11 x 17 inch score at full size, and even magnified! I haven't begun to use it in all the ways you can - and no problems yet. Set up was inserting a disc.
Summary: The Dell UltraSharp has everything except for being a P-IPS screen and having an out of the box accurate color calibration. Compared to any other LED LCD Monitor that's 24'' and E-IPS, the price and specs are the best in the industry. -Very low input lag(Important for basically anything especially gaming) -Low response time(although all monitors are roughly the same anyway) -Bright screen -Great color depth while retaining nearly perfect blacks and whites for an E-IPS...
Summary: I love this monitor. I use it for tax accounting and research. It's 1920*1200 aspect ratio lets me have two 8.5*11 documents open right next to each other. Additionally it is capable of displaying massive excel worksheets.
I didn't think I would like 16:10 but... it snuck up on me.

Summary: So I got the package, Excitedly I unwrapped it, plugged it in and pow, blue screen of... just kidding. Purpose for Purchase: Video Games, 3d Modeling, LED, It's a Dell Monitor (We have a bunch at work, and they are awesome) My Previous Monitor (which I am lending to my Girlfriend) is Samsung PX2370 23-Inch Widescreen LCD Monitor with LED Backlight .
Summary: I needed assistance with my computers color profile and how it renders differently on the Dell than it does on another monitor. I did everything I could to troubleshoot the issue myself. As a last resort, I contacted Technical Support. I'm not a big phone talker, so I decided to use Dell's chat option online. However, I wasn't able to make it very far since most Dell monitors do not have a service tag on them.
Summary: I spent months researching for a good monitor around this price range, and this monitor kept popping up in forums/reviews. I now can see why... This review goes out to the gamers out there. After proper calibration (used a custom calibration setting from tftcentral) this monitor blew me away. The colors just pop out at you and you see the texture of colors, not just the color. Ever looked closely at an iphone's app icons?
Summary: My first criterion when I was looking for a 24" monitor was screen resolution: I wanted 1920x1200. I know that it's not completely rational; 24" 1080p monitors (1920x1080) can be found for half the price, but I needed those 120 rows of pixels. This is partly because I will probably end up placing this in a dual-monitor setup next to a 20" 4:3 monitor (1600x1200) and I like the vertical resolution to match.
Summary: Let's start out by describing what I do with this thing: I use CAD software and play games from the same machine. I'm not a pro video or photo editor; please understand that I'm not. I do not/have not owned dozens of expensive monitors, although I have worked with a few! This thing's got everything that counts: 1920x1200 resolution at a true 60hz, not "59.754hz.
