First and last Dell monitor I will probably ever buy

Pros: Great monitor, was a perfect model from what I've heard about others from this batch...till it decided to die. No dead pixels, no line issues, no strange ghosting issues, nothing I had read about from others. I was very happy I got such a fine unit. Guess it was too good to last.
Cons: Suddenly stopped working after 2 months. Was showing minor signs of issues with menu and controls. Suddenly stopped showing menu, but monitor has the panel back-lit. All buttons light up, and are interactive, nothing shows up on screen. No menu, no unconnected message floatie, nothing. Unable to reset monitor without being able to see text or menu. Basically the controls are shot. Even after cold start up the monitor will not release to unconnected mode. Basically its...
Pros: Great sleek design, lightweight, plethora of options. Color tuned out of the box.
Cons: Visible interlaced phenomenon lines visible in whole lower left area. Very annoying. Apparently 27" U2713HM suffers similar defect. See this forum and wait for next hardware revision....http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/peripherals/f/3529/t/19502072.aspx
