Summary: Called Dell and had a nightmare getting a replacement... turned out they said it was a known issue with this model.
Pros: Great monitor till it dies
Cons: Monitor performed fine for awhile, then one day my screen flickered, and the images on my desktop became burned into the monitor with a shaky/flickering, even when the monitor was not plugged into anything, with only a power cable in it, I could see the hazy shaky chrome window from my computer still there, it was so burned in you could still read the larger lettered items in the burned in browser window..
Summary: This monitor was obviously a monitor that somebody else had returned because it was defective. AND I THINK IT IS DEFECTIVE AS WELL!
Pros: Purchased 2 Dell Monitors. One does not have any problems.
Cons: Second monitor had dead pixels in a prominent location on screen. My 30 day return period with Newegg was up so I contacted Dell. Dell support tediously required me to wade through a bunch of tests to verify the dead pixels; took about 3 hours for the tech support person to believe that I really had dead pixels. Finally, he agreed to send me a replacement monitor. The replacement monitor was clearly marked "Refurbished" and while it did not have any dead pixels, it ha...
Summary: The monitor had serious 'cross-hatching' effect (diagonal lines) all over the screen. The lines were quite faint and just noticeable enough to be distracting, especially on white backgrounds and around the bottom of the screen. I could even see them in movies and games some times.
Pros: As usual, Dell give you a good setup of cables with the monitor. It's pre calibrated from factory and is ready to go when you get it. The monitor had good colors and brightness as usual from Dell UltraSharp monitors. But that is about it this time.
Cons: Before this monitor, I loved Dell monitors. I have owned a Dell u2711 that I loved and I have friends that also love there Dell monitors in the UltraSharp series. But this monitor changed all that for me, or at least I won't go for the cheaper UltraSharp versions next time.
Pros: This is a great monitor ONLY WHEN it's working as it should. Great color, sharp pixels, doesn't have the grainy coating that older 27" DELL monitor had, lots of input options, great value etc, BUT..
Cons: From my experience, it's really poorly manufactured! I had 2 replacements within 9 months, and third one is now on the way.
