Excerpt: I'm using this monitor as an external monitor for my 2011 Macbook Air 11", and it works great. I have an external hard drive, superdrive, and audio port hooked up to three of the USB ports on the monitor with a mini display port to display port cable for video, and apple bluetooth keyboard and...
Summary: Bought this monitor to be a second monitor for my MacBook Pro with Retina display. At first I was underwhelmed by this monitor, but now I like it, but don't love it. Note that my main two uses for it are photo editing and Diablo 3. The good: - The resolution is the big winner. The extra pixels over "HD resolution" is very nice - Has a display port. This makes connecting via thunderbolt easy.
Excerpt: Since this has to be one of the most reviewed monitors out there, I won't go into detailed ramblings but one thing is worth noting for those like us who buy these (and the 2212) for quad-and-beyond setups. Compared to the the previous generation Dell monitors, and indeed 24" monitors in...
Summary: Love this monitor! Been using it for about 6 months now (actually have 2 of them side by side for one huge desktop). I do software development, so I work with a mix of text and graphics, general business apps, plenty of web site reading, and an occasional game. I waited forever for a decent affordable 1920x1200 monitor instead of the usual 1080 "HD" junk. This has a matte screen which I like so much better than glossy screens.
Summary: I recently purchased a Dell XPS 9100 and was using my 19 inch Dell UltraSharp monitor that came with my 2002 Dell demenions 8300 computer. I work mainly with photos, email, internet browsing, spread sheet work, and occational gaming. I wanted a to purchase a larger monitor (at least a 23") but wasnt sure which type to get (LCD vs LED). I was very happy with the performace of my 19 inch UltraSharp.
Summary: One of our Dell FP2000 LCD monitors finally refused to power up last week, so much as we loved that 10 year old monitor, it was time for a replacement. We'd resisted upgrading, because upping resolution from 1600 x 1200 to most new screens' 1920 x 1080 seemed a step backwards. Only this and a very few other new screens can even match the old one's resolution vertically, so adding a bit of width didn't seem worthwhile.
Summary: To be fair, a system is only as strong as its weakest link. I'm using an old piece of junk for a CPU, but have plans to upgrade soon. Old monitor failed so had to replace it immediately. This one had excellent reveiws, both from the experts (PC World) and users (like me.
