Summary: I was bummed when this thing fired up. I was loving the form factor and all of the great connection options, but they've taken the display width resolution of a 27" monitor and literally spread them out another 2". I'm really bummed about this as I really love everything else about this monitor. As I am graphic artist this distortion will not fly and I am returning the monitor.
Summary: Monitor was quickly delivered, heavier than expected, and looked nice. Comes with a good variety of cables. After out of the box setup and install, the resolution with Dell Optiplex 780 was limited to 1920x1080. Spent 1.5 hours and 4 phone calls with Dell technical support: downloading, installing, uninstalling, and rebooting. Twice needing to kill power to force reboot. Not clear if problem was windows 7 64-bit, graphics, driver, cables, or monitor.

Summary: MAC USERS BEWARE! There are no drivers for Mac users and the resolution is off. And if you try and drag browser screens to the ultrawide from the Mac screen they don't go. Spreadsheets and office products split screen, but no browsers. Poor engineering and support.
Summary: Do not. It only works with Window 8 ready computers. And yours likely does not support 21:9 even if on the most current operating system; your video card is likely not ready. Dell support does not have a clue.... Accompanying software worse than useless. Great idea that does not work in the real world. Wait... .
Excerpt: I was in the market for a new monitor, first having a 900P monitor a few years back, then a 1080P AW2210 monitor for 3 years or so. Noticing the blacks on the alienware were just not dark enough and also that the panel was just too small. I went to microcenter in search of a new monitor, as well as browsing newegg. I went in and bought an asus VE247H (I think) twas a 24 inch TN panel with HDMI, fast response, 1080P etc. I brought it home just was not impressed.
