5 out of 5 eggsAmazing, Clear, Fast Monitor

Pros: Purchased this monitor based on how slim it is, the response timing, and contrast ratio. All of these specs add up to a nice, crisp display with lots of color depth.
- Gaming looks fantastic
- Blu ray movies look even more life-like
- Not too large of monitors, not too small
- Anti-glare screen is a must-have

Cons: Short list:
- No VESA mounts - Oh well, it takes up very little desk space anyways
- A bit wobbly - Because it's so slim..

Neither of these are a huge deal, but I figured they should be mentioned

Other Thoughts: I enjoyed this monitor so much that I bought a second, then a third one. I now have all three on one desktop workstation, and it is easily my favorite setup. I find it difficult to switch to any other monitor, even if it's any larger. Very well worth my money.

5 out of 5 eggsGood stuff

Pros: This is a great monitor. Very clean and professional looking. Dell has replaced HP as the go-to monitor vendor. I bought two of these for my i7 system and am considering getting another one for my i5 system. Been using these 11 months and not a single thing wrong with them.

Cons: No back mounts, but I wouldn't be using them anyway.

Other Thoughts: The bezel is shiny but not objectionable. The screen is an non-obtrusive anti-glare.

5 out of 5 eggsNice monitor for full HD without being too large

Pros: Full 1080P
Clear picture
Has been good for both videos and games
Doesn't take up a huge amount of desk space
Perfect size for the distance it is from my desk chair.

Cons: Seems to take a little longer to detect a video signal and start displaying than my previous dell lcd. I even set the input to dvi instead of auto thinking that was the issue. If I want to get into bios setup during POST I have to start pressing hte key prior to waiting until I see the post screen or I'll miss the window. Also does it once I'm in Windows.
Not enough of an issue to reduce my rating of the monitor though, more of a slight nit-picky annoyance than an issue.

3 out of 5 eggsGood 2D Screen for the price

Pros: It has a high res screen that is stable and will not let you down. Good for games and movies alike. Light weight and thin.

Cons: No HDMI - even though you dont have sound with this monitor it would still be nice to have them. No mounting holes in the back for if you want to run surround/eyefinity - I would say this is the biggest drawback IMHO. How long or hard is it to put this in? not very hard....

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Thin, slick, good looking
Touch controls for power and settings very easy to use
Very vibrant and nice display
Not bad for Dell

Cons: No HDMI, but I honestly don't think it's not something to be upset about
Dust tends to cling onto the border quickly, a quick rub with the side of a finger will clean that up

Other Thoughts: Using this for my very first build and as a first timer this monitor is great.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: -No dead or stuck pixels
-0 - unnoticeable ghosting (for me at least)
-1920x1080 HD
-Amazing colors
-Extremely clear
-Menu UI and settings are very nice and easy to use
-Looks nice and modern
-It's basically plug and use. Setup, plug, and use. I didn't even need to install anything for it to work.

Cons: -The monitor can shake if you exert force on your desk like shaking and hitting. The amount of shaking of the monitor depends on the amount of force and type you use.
-Glossy finish can be a finger print magnet.

There are a few cons, but they are not giant problems at all. It's just the shaking or finger print magnet that could be an annoyance to some. These problems could be easily avoided though.

Other Thoughts: Overall, a great HD monitor with avoidable problems and still, it works perfectly as intended. If you have some spare cash, you could look into the Dell S2330MX monitor. It's the same thing as this one. The only difference is that it is 23" instead of 21.5".

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: From an early low res. flat screen to this was a shock.
Still figuring out but must say this is grate.It is a good deal.
Colors sharp from corner to corner,top to bottom.It toke a couple of days for Weatherbug exc to come up to size.Do not know if that was site or my vidio card but it works good!!Over all view is esay to see.response FAST.

Cons: Instructions on making adjustments pore.No DVI-D cable.I had to order one from NewEgg.My CP has a DVI-D and I had to use the VGA cable.BUMMER

Other Thoughts: Thank You NEWEGG for carring DVI-D cables.I have had no luck finding one in Spokane WA.
