Summary: I had wanted to purchase a larger monitor. My vision isn't as good as it was years ago (I'm getting more and more far sighted). I'm now using TWO monitors on my computer which gives me screen real estate. I had a 19" 1440x900 monitor and a 22" 1680x1050. I intended to replace the smaller one with a 24-27". Actually, I was drooling over those 1440P or 1600P displays. The Korean 1440P 27" units can be had for about $300, but just how GOOD are they?
Good luck explaining backlight bleed to Dell support.

Summary: Purchased two monitors. Had each one exchanged twice. Backlight bleed was so terrible, I thought it HAD to be the result of defective units. Nope, Dell makes them this way. If you're willing to see past the backlight issues, another frustration I ran across is the inability to watch 16:9 content without having it scale to fill the screen. That means any 1080 input will always be distorted. (There is an option to center letterbox 4:3 content, but not 16:9).
Excerpt: I thought this monitor would be super sharp with accurate color according to the reviews I read before purchasing but in my opinion it is not. I've tried calibrating, etc... but still need to use my Macbook Pro as a refrence when editing photos. For me this monitor is not working and I will most likely return it and look for another. I gave this 1 star because of it's large size (for watching movies while on the road) and easy set-up.
Great Monitor But Bad Revision with A Yellow Tint Revision A00
22 July 2013
Summary: This is one of the best monitors out in the market today. You can't go wrong with this monitor if you want to play video games, edit photos or just surf the internet. I am currently the owner of one of these monitors for the past year and have been so happy with it that I decided to purchase another. Well I read that many people had been receiving monitors revision A00 with build dates in 2013 that had a yellow tint.
Summary: Excellent 16:10 premium monitor. Using it for general purpose applications. Excellent price to performance value. With the competitive pricing you get convenience of multiple monitor setup on reasonable budget.
