Summary: I've owned my 2209WA for about 10 months now, and I have loved every minute of it. This is the first monitor that allowed me to finally retire my trusty 50 lb Sony Trinitron after holding out on the LCD revolution. I discovered the difference between the various LCD panel types after purchasing an well-reviewed LCD display (from a competitor), only to discover the TN panel's terrible color reproduction, 6-bit posterization, and vertical viewing angle problems*.
Summary: I love this display! i have read many reviews and heard of first hand experiences about this being the BEST display for photo editing and video editing for the money. Obviously everyone wants a nice Eizo display, but what kind of student has $2,000 to spend on a display? exactly. I love this. Calibrated perfectly. works amazing.
Summary: In a word: IT IS NOT a TN-PANEL!!!!! What a huge difference from the crap TN-Panel monitor, which manufacture deliberately hide in the specification too shy to tell they monitors are TN-Panel.
5 Stars if they work. Zero Stars for Dell Support / Service / QC

Summary: These could be the best thing since flat screens came out with a few caveats.... I researched these before hand and realized that they have had their share of problems, but it seemed that maybe they had been worked out, and for the price I was quoted....two twelve each, I had to give them a shot. There are some issues reported with tint and reds. And no matter what I do to calibrate mine there is definitely a small bit of green that cannot adjusted correctly.
Summary: From a photo-editing P-O-V to/of which IPS screens are primarily targeted/coveted & which hardware calibration is somewhat expected. It is missing some controls an enthusiast that bothers to get calibration hardware for might hope to have. I guess that's why they introduce it as an "e"-IPS screen, with presumably the "e" denoting "economy"-IPS.
Summary: The Dell 2209WA 22 inch Monitor sports an IPS panel rather than the typical consumer TN panels, but at a consumer price. IPS panels support a wider color gamut and are much brighter than TN panels making them ideal for professional graphics use. The Dell 2209WA 22 inch Monitor is a professional level monitor available at a consumer price.
Summary: A very nice design and great quality. Although it came with an excellent swivel and height adjustable base, I chose to mount it on a wall mount which attached perfectly. Color rendition is excellent and I am very happy with this monitor for general use, as well as graphics and image editing. At the price point, it would be hard to beat, while performing like some of the more expensive monitors out there today.
Summary: This monitor is a true break through. the eIPS technology makes an outstanding monitor available for a truly reasonable price. It was easy to install and has been working great for the month I've had it. The colors are very true. It's a great monitor for amateur photo-editing. The screen easily rotates to allow easy viewing of portrait pages and photos. The only downside is that Dell is having a hard time keeping up with sales and finding it was very difficult.
