5 out of 5 eggsexcellent product

Pros: Monitor is exactly what I expected, very sharp image and very adjustable. The two available usb ports on the side are very handy, especially for a headset or thumbdrive.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Just note that this does not come with an hdmi port. Really happy with this monitor, and even happier I got it on sale

Pros: These are great all purpose monitors at a great price.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Amazing monitor for an Amazing price point!

The viewing angles are amazing

I am going to buy two more and eyefinity when the 8000 series video cards release.

I plan on using portrait mode for three monitors so that is why I got this monitor with good vertical viewing angles.

Cons: NONE

4 out of 5 eggsI'm impressed

Pros: I did a lot of research on IPS panel LCD's and this was by far one of the best, for the price and size. It took me 90 days to decide on this monitor and I'm glad I waited. I can't find any issues in reviews I've read here or or else where that mention a grain on white backgrounds.

I needed this compared to other models, specifically to run Display Port. I'll soon be getting 1 or 2 more, to run at the same time edge to edge.

Cons: I enjoy the USB hub built in but so many Dell Models have a 2.0 Hub built in. I'm surprised this didn't have a 3.0 hub. Also with Display Port 1.2 out these days, why this did not have Daisy Chain built in is sad. Only the Dell 29" version has Daisy Chain, which makes it quite elitist.

5 out of 5 eggsGood performer with a matte screen

Pros: -High definition
- Matte Screen: This monitor sits perpendicular to a window that spends a great deal open so it gets a lot of light. I don't have to deal with glare which is a plus
-Solid Built
-plenty of swivel and tilt options (i.e. vertical screen)

Cons: -16:9 Aspect ratio
I would have liked a more traditional (at least for monitors anyway) 16:10 screen but I won't hold it against it since I knew that going in.

Other Thoughts: This computer is actually in my living room. I don't use it as much as the rest of the family. again I do like the fact that the screen has an anti-reflective coating. I doesn't look as bright as my previous monitor but i honestly prefer the colors on this one.

I went ahead to lagom (dot) ln/lcd-test/ and was satisfied with the results. I didn't have to make any adjustments and the screen passed most tests with flying colors. There was mo ghosting (although some pixels were lost, apparently), the black levels were great; and it has a decent response time. With that said I don't intent to use this monitor for gaming, so I cannot tell for sure if that will be an issue for your Call of Duty matches online.

There was slight flickering in the 4a panel of the inversion test but most panels have that. Otherwise it was perfect (for the price which was $209.99)

4 out of 5 eggsGood Value

Pros: Low price and high performance. The stand is also amazingly good.

Cons: As another reviewer has noted, the inside casing next to the screen has a glossy reflective finish. The rest of the monitor's casing is a textured surface that does not reflect, but the one part that is next to the screen that would have a chance of reflection is for some reason the only part of the monitor that is glossy. Therefore, the area immediately around the screen is always reflecting what is on the screen; I find it annoying and distracting. Otherwise this is a fantastic monitor.

Other Thoughts: A great monitor for the price, the reflection complaint is the only thing keeping it from 5 eggs. I have been using it as part of a low cost color grading suite, and I have run into a bit of issues with calibration but I think those are on the end of my calibration software and do not reflect on the monitor.

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: LED backlight turns on quickly, stand is well made and highly adjustable

Cons: My current monitor is a 4-5 year old Samsung TN panel, nothing special. The product description and reviews (both on Newegg and from other sources) had me convinced this would be a considerable upgrade over my Samsung. Once setup and adjusted, I compared it side by side and to my great disappointment I saw very little if any improvement over my current monitor. Viewing angles were the biggest letdown, I saw at best a slight improvement over my Samsung. When rotating the display into portrait mode, even at a distance of over 3 feet, brightness and contrast (as well as color) shifts were evident at the top and bottom of the screen. I expected contrast levels to be a noticeable improvement as well but again, I saw very little if any difference between the two monitors. IPS panels (even budget panels) are touted for their superior color, both in accuracy and vibrancy, but again this monitor didn't meet those criteria. It works and obviously based on all the positive reviews, many people are happy with it, but if you're picky or looking for an upgrade over a decent TN panel, I suggest looking elsewhere.

Other Thoughts: I ordered from Newegg and returned this monitor a few days later, not sure whether I can find a reasonably priced upgrade for my Samsung. Manufacturers don't care much about the PC market these days so finding good quality displays can be quite difficult, its a shame that most people have better displays on their smartphones than they do on their laptops and/or desktops.

4 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Monitors

Pros: These monitors have excellent color and can be easily viewed from all angles. I have 3 of these set-up on a single MSI 680GTX 4GB running in portrait mode and these things are stunning. 3240x1920 resolutiion. Also, the built in USB hub is nice, but it's not 3.0.

Cons: No HDMI port.
