Excerpt: Tough decision between this screen and Dell's 27in LCD or 24in LCD. While 24in is pretty solid, 27 does give you meaningful extra space, and 29 has a very unique aspect ratio. I decided to go with the 29 because I often want to view panoramas at the highest resolution possible.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Pros: The wide screen makes watching wide format media wonderful. The variety of inputs, the audio output for HDMI connections, the professional calibration, all are on point.
Cons: As others have stated, this monitor has an issue with sleeping. However, after further testing, I have concluded that the issue is with the HDMI port ONLY. Both the mini DisplayPort, DisplayPort, and DVI-D ports sleep perfectly. I have not tested the VGA port. When using the HDMI port, when the m...
Summary: I've had good luck with Dell Ultrasharp displays in the past and I have confidence that the replacement will give me the long life I'm used to from my previous Ultrasharp monitors.
Pros: The widescreen resolution is pretty nice, colors are accurate and it has just about every connection type you can think of including a 4 port USB 3 hub.
Cons: After having it for a while a vertical row of green pixels bite the dust. It also started randomly getting stuck on so you had to hold the "button" for 5-10 seconds for it to power off. Sometimes it would also go dead and just show a black or white screen while being stuck on.
Pros: Great monitor, 21:9 is a great gaming aspect ratio as it adds extra view in most games (and pretty much all games that support 21:9) no dead pixels in over a year, no flickering, usb 3.0 ports work great, in constant use
Cons: The stand is annoying, probably weighs more than the screen.. and I doubt it came free, wish there was a version without the stand.
Summary: My friend gave me one of these monitors when they came out. I liked it so much I went and got another one, and an Ergotron mount to hold them nicely. This monitor has the best picture you can get without the glare. Every port you can conceive of is on this thing.
Seems to have a bad component that degrades over time.

Summary: Dell was generally very good about supporting this problem, and happily sent me a replacement right away with just a few hiccups in the process. I contacted Dell again a few days ago (9 months after the first replacement), and this time I had to jump through hoops with tech support for a good hour...
Pros: Nice color, snappy latency and good overall performance. I really like the extra wide aspect ratio for the software I work in, since it has tool panels on the sides which would otherwise cramp my work space.
Cons: The monitor has trouble sleeping. The first one I got had problems almost right away, then degraded quickly. Dell sent me a new one fairly quickly. The second one seemed perfect at first, then failed once a month, then once a week, and now only 9 months later it fails several times per day. The p...
Summary: I bought the monitor on 06/24/14 and it stopped working on 8/3/14. The monitor will not display there are lines all over the screen and you can't get into setup. I tried to exchange it and Amazon said it was past the cutoff date.
