Excerpt: I'm pretty bummed. I'm a student just graduating from school. I would use this monitor for homework, but also for some photo editing. Now that I'm finishing school, I'm going to have to start depending on this for full time work.
Pros: Adjustable, Price
Cons: Dead Pixels, Inaccurate Colors, Poor quality
Summary: Pros: Nice bright colors. No tweaking necessary unless you do color accurate work. Can't say enough about colors on IPS panels. Beautiful. 4x USB 3.0 ports. Nice. Input ports galore. All monitors should come with this many input ports. Very easy to use controls. Very solid stand.
Summary: Let me start off by saying that Amazon customer service has been fantastic! Also, the picture, viewing angles, and sRGB color reproduction on these panels is really good. Now the bad stuff: At these prices, I expect my monitor to deliver perfection; unfortunately, Dell completely forgot to do any...

First, let me start out by saying that I've owned this monitor for a little over 60 days and have had it replaced a total of three times.
Excerpt: I started getting intermittent 'green' screen after 5 weeks as well as some red blotchy mark in one spot I could only see when watching movies. When my computer wakes up from sleep, sometimes the screen is all green, but one can still see through to the background.
Summary: The famous lightbleed on the lower left corner is really disconcerting on dark scenes. Hardly expectable on a product of this supposed category. And on top of that, Amazon is refusing to honor their warranty just because of that silly IPS warning.
Summary: ...is the sound you are going to hear when editing large amounts of text. This monitor has a really obnoxious buzz/high pitched squeal that has been documented around the web. I read reports of this before I ordered and thought I'd take my chances and give it a try (rev A01), but the squeal isn't...
