Giddily working along

Rae, B&H Photo
21 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I am a motion designer and a photographer, so I use this on two fronts. On the motion design front, I am positively giddy that I can throw up a full 1080p comp and see it at full resolution with ample room for the program tools around it. (It should be noted I have a second monitor for my timeline, so I am cheating a little.) For editing photos, I am loving how crisp it seems to be, and the new level at which I feel I can work with photos.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image

very nice monitor

Bing, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Urgently needed a new monitor, so picked this one up based on both online reviews and personal recommendations, in lieu of my normal systematic research. I am very happy with this display. My Dell XPS 17 (L702X) drives it via the displayport at full resolution. It's bright and crisp, and the colors are quite natural and appealing. When I first viewed some of my higher resolution photographs, I was stunned at how detailed and lifelike they looked. Text is crisp and solid.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors

Works with with new MacPro "Tube"

cseeman, B&H Photo
20 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Works well with Late 2013 MacPro "Tube" Brightness and out of the box calibration are very good. Setup could have been a tad easier. The monitor doesn't auto detect using its Display port. It initially reported no DVI found. You have to set up the monitor menu to use the Display port for the first use. It's fine after that. Needs mini display to display cable, purchased separately, to work the MacPro Thunderbolt port. Not a big issue but one should be aware of that.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
  • Cons: Display Port Detection, Needs Mini To Display

Great screen, great price

Barbless, B&H Photo
1 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Using this with a MacBook Air. Needed a Mini Displayport to Displayport cable, and the dishes are done! (I scored the Accel version 1.2 cable and it has been reliable on both Mac and PC platforms.) Simple to unpack thanks to the instructions on the box, the packing was all cardboard, display resolution is excellent, controls are thoughtfully simple, appreciate the on-board USB ports. I sometimes bring home a PC laptop.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors

Liking This So Far

Preston the Designer, B&H Photo
3 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Except not for having any built in speakers, this is a really good monitor. It replaced an old CRT (I held out for as long as I could) and I must say it is quite an upgrade in size and clarity and reduces the amount of eye strain I experience when I work long hours on the computer. The large screen took some getting used to but now I wonder how I did without it for so long.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
  • Cons: No Built in Speakers

According to TFT central Benchmarks, One of the Best LED Monitors, including Glitches

Roger, Amazon
28 December 2013
  • Summary: I've performed a little research, and aside from all the complaints typed by other buyers, this LED display tends to still be one of the best as listed on TFT Central ([...] And I tend to agree, as this is one of the best designed displays I have seen yet. The display stand and stand adjustments are extremely well designed and conservative in appearance. The menu buttons, after a decade, intuititive including two preset customizable shortcuts.

Known manufacturing issues in the past, but I definitely got a good copy.

M. Levi, Amazon
28 November 2013
  • Summary: I spent a lot of time hesitating before I got this monitor. Many, many internet comments, even reviews and articles about artifacts in the lower left of the screen, light bleeding, and terrible Dell Support experiences after repeated returns of 'bad copies' of the monitor. AND the monitor was hundreds more before than what I later paid for it back in October '13 from Amazon.
