2 out of 5 eggsShort-lived beauty

Pros: The picture is stunning; it's great for multi (side-by-side) monitor mounts as there's almost no bezel or border, though it does not have VESA mount points, so you have to find (and usually tap) a specially made mounting plate. ...however...

Cons: After about 8 months of light usage, the right half of the screen started developing stripes of various colors. Didn't matter whether it was VGA or DVI, and it was system-agnostic. Dell couldn't give a [EXPLETIVE REDACTED] less about the problem, either, despite *MANY* phone calls. The warranty on this is utterly useless.
Occasionally, the stripes go away and it's lovely again. But then they come back.
Another thing it likes to do is 'lock up'. That is, no matter what you press, the monitor will not respond and will appear to be completely and totally dead. The fix for this is the same as most monitors that seem to lock: press and hold the power button, unplug the power while still holding the power button, wait 30 seconds and plug it back in while still holding the power button. Pretty much the same process to reset an HPaq laptop's power circuit when it refuses to turn on.

Other Thoughts: I had recommended this model to many, many clients. Of them, only one has had any issue other than the lockup discussed above -- and they had the stripe-banding issue that I have. I cannot, in good conscience recommend this to anyone anymore. I gave it two instead of one egg because I know they're not *ALL* bad.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great picture with good color. Really liked it until the day it died.

Cons: Died after 4 months and nobody...Newegg or Dell seems to care.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy this monitor. Unless you need a 23 inch paper weight that nobody but you cares about. Well it did work for a few months.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the Price!

Pros: The IPS panel is AMAZING! Great clarity and colors. Very bright too. I got mine on sale for $130, but even on full price you ca't beat for a budget IPS monitor

Cons: There is a little glare seeing it's a glossy screen, but it's nothing worth taking a egg off for.

Other Thoughts: Only comes with VGA, would like to see a DVI cable included

5 out of 5 eggseasy on the eyes

Pros: very nice picture, very clear. I have eye strain and this monitor is a tremendous help. After I purchased mine 3 other folks in the office wanted one.

Cons: no HDMI but that's an easy work around

1 out of 5 eggsDell is Shady

Pros: The glossy screen is exactly what you are looking for when buying a monitor that doesn't have any lights to reflect onto it. Beautiful.

Cons: The problem - 1/3rd of screen burnt in 2 months into purchase. Simple right?

But oh, where do I begin...

Oh, of course. Dell has absolutely horrible customer service with products they sell outside of their own website. It is so bad, in fact, that I would recommend ANY BUYER INTERESTED IN PURCHASING FROM DELL TO DROP ANY AND ALL CONSIDERATIONS IMMEDIATELY.

Other reviewers have complained since I bought mine over a year ago with the same problem. Dell states on their own website that many monitors do not carry service tags, such is the case with this one. If you have some problem (like dead pixels or burn-in [mine was burnt]), you can be confident that you will be up the creek without a paddle in replacing it through Dell.

The reps will act as if they never read you tell them very clearly and very nicely multiple times that you bought it from Newegg and you can furnish proof, and just say over and over again they cannot do anything without a service tag.

So here I am, 1 year later. Thank goodness I bought the extended warranty... and I am hoping to get my replacement much more comfortably through Newegg.

This whole experience with Dell has been a huge letdown. They were the company I bought my first desktop from, with who I often recommended friends and peers to buy from if they did not care to personally upgrade. How different the reference will be now...

Other Thoughts: If you like to take a gamble, a pristine unit would be a lovely addition for your desktop. Although even when I bought this, many warned others to buy a warranty because there are often quite a few problems. Thank goodness I did.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good

Pros: Good resolution for a second monitor which is what i use it for. I was looking for a good monitor for a month then i came across this one and i was blown away by the price and the quality.

Cons: Nothing that i have seen so far. The glare is most likely the only problem i had with the monitor because i have a window to my back that lets light in and produces a glare on both of my screen. But this monitor is still really good even if i have a glare.

3 out of 5 eggsdecent monitor

Pros: Great, sharp, and clear picture. Decent purchase for the listed price.

Cons: I ordered two of these monitors for my editing station and the inexplicable quarter inch height difference between the two is extremely annoying. So I'd call them slightly unreliable in that sense.

2 out of 5 eggsBad after 1 year

Pros: Good quality picture and sharp colors.

Cons: Worked good for first year which is the warranted duration. Heard popping noise followed by degraded picture and color quality after about 13 months of service. It still usable for general web surfing and email, but very limited if good quality graphics is needed.

3 out of 5 eggs2 years at max?

Pros: IPS Panel.

Cons: Not really much, besides the fact it lasted around 1~2 years.

Other Thoughts: I've had three of these monitors and they all slowly died after within the 9th month.

First problems were the ghosting. then dear lawd... all three of them started ghosting. I thought it was just something with my computer so I tested it on two laptops and two other desktops. It wasn't a huge problem with me since it was barely noticeable.

Fast forward around a year and two months.. two of the monitors random distort and sometimes the distortion doesn't happen. If I get lucky it'll stay working at most. Ghosting is still apparent on all three monitors. Although one is still working perfectly (aside from the ghosting.)

Fast forward part two.. nearing two years. Same problems but two of them officially died, and the third one is ghosting pretty hard.

Fast forward until now.

4:16 AM, 1/30/2015.. Officially crapped out. I can take a picture if you'd like and show you receipts on my purchase. At most these monitors can last a good 1~2 years.

Someone mentioned the 7ms doesn't matter if you're playing FPS. Don't listen to them. I've played CS GO with a 1ms (60hz) vs 7ms (60hz). Imo, there's a noticeable difference if you are a hardcore FPS player.

Color and all that stuff is okay, all the pros you've been reading I will support, but just be aware of durability.
