5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Monitor

Pros: Clear Crisp Colors, Plenty of Depth - Deep Blacks, Easy to use Adjustment buttons located on the right side of the Monitor, Even Easier Adjustments via Dell Software

Cons: DVI Cable isn't included. Wha??? Gee Dell you couldn't kick in a DVI Cable? I'm not a fan of external power supplies, but I guess they do offer design benefits, lower power, weight, etc

Other Thoughts: All of my Monitors are Dell. Throughout the years they have been reliable, and have performed perfectly. I did own a Acer 17" LCD, which was reliable and had decent colors as well, no complaints. I needed a LED Widescreen for my home recording PC in my music room. I saw a Acer G6 Series G236HLBbd here on Newegg on sale, so I purchased it. What a mistake! Awful washed out colors, Brightness & contrast are overbearing. Really disappointed with it, tiny adjustment buttons difficult to use, wish I could have returned this dud. Anyway, I just had to replace it. The Dell S2240M came up on sale on NewEgg. This is the second Dell S2240M I own. The first was purchased a couple of years ago for my wife's PC. It's colors are just outstanding and works like a champ day in/day out. Rich deep colors and blacks. As soon as I installed on my Music PC, I was blown away. What a difference! They adjustment buttons are located on the Right Side, and though small are usable without being frustrating. Nice part is Dell has management software that will basically let you do the same adjustments via the application. I'm extremely happy with Monitor.

4 out of 5 eggsA good, basic, big enough monitor

Pros: Good price (even better if you got in on sale)

Cons: No Vesa mount
Didn't include a DVI cable
No HDMI input

None of them are big problems, but they add up to minus one egg.

4 out of 5 eggsIts great

Pros: Colors are great, the glossy screen makes everything look so much better than my old matte finish monitor. The design of it leaves a lot of bulk out so it has a nice sleek almost borderless bezel.

Cons: Where the inputs on the monitor are are kind of a tight fit, bulkier cables will not fit or have a VERY tight fit. I had ordered a Rosewill RCW-401 DVI cable and it took some force for it too fit because its such a beefy cable. Took 1 egg off for this because it's a decent con.

Other Thoughts: The buttons for on/off and config are kind of in a meh spot on the right side of the monitor but it's not enough of a paint to make it a con. I would recommend this all day long. I'll update this review if I have any troubles with it

5 out of 5 eggsBright and clear

Pros: Bright vivid color and an ease to set up.

Cons: To install the base you need to give it a strong push to lock in. The assembly sheet only shows picture and no text.

Other Thoughts: Newegg got it to my home in 2 days and I used standard shipping.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, Simple Monitors

Pros: Very solid monitors for the price.
*Crisp 1080p
*Great colors
*Nice and bright
*Relatively thin bezel-- and very unobtrusive
*Buttons feel nice
*Good for multimonitor setups
*Cheap cheap cheap-- I got them for less than $100 a piece, which is a great deal IMO

Cons: If you're looking for more features, this likely isn't your cup of tea. It has a relatively stripped down feature set-- no VESA, no HDMI.

Other Thoughts: I got two of these for gaming/CAD work/general use. They look very nice on my desk and have a pretty solid feeling to them. I'm looking at getting a third when I get a new GPU this fall-- I got exactly what I was expecting, and have zero regrets with this purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this monitor.

Pros: I was trying to decide between this and an Acer 24" VA monitor.I wanted to try IPS but also wanted the bigger screen and faster response time of the Acer, plus I had heard about IPS's weak blacks and light bleed issues. I game a lot so had trepidation about whether this monitor would meet my needs. I'm also trying to get into game creation so I wanted something super clear.
I bought them both and found that this one does everything as good as the VA. Both monitors produce a solid black and neither has ANY light bleed.
Glossy screen gives an incredibly clear picture. 7MS GTG sounds really bad but I haven't had any issues with ghosting in MY games.
Ghosting issues with BluRay movies were mostly resolved by tweaking the settings.
Only draws like 15 watts of power, so that's good.
No speakers keeps the cost, power, and size down.
21.5 is big enough for almost anything. I play my games with a Xbox for Windows controller, usually sitting about 3-4 feet away. The only time it doesn't feel big enough is when the Acer is sitting next to it, but since this satisfies all my needs, I am currently using the Acer as a display for my PS3 so that's not really an issue.

Cons: No HDMI (no speakers and only 1080P, don't need HDMI) or VESA, but for the price, that's perfectly fine.
Not sure why a 1080P monitor would even ship with a VGA cable but the world rarely makes sense.

Other Thoughts: If I had been able to preview these monitors before I bought them, I would have bought two of these. My higher spec games are Diablo 3, Bioshock Infinite, Assassin's Creed 4 (all run on Max settings) and Thief (high) and this is fast enough for those games without question... And AC4 looks so amazing! I'm playing through it again just because it looks so much better now.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

Pros: This monitor is fantastic, the bezel is thin, great 1080p display and it is IPS after all. No problems with it what so ever and it has a 7ms response time which I can't really see a difference. It's a very nice clear monitor and it is a glass panel so be sure to not be around a light source. I got it for 109 and it is WELL worth it. I've been waiting for a while to get a monitor, especially an IPS and I'm glad I stumbled upon this one in neweggs news letter. I don't necessarily think it's worth the 200 but around 140 most definitely.

Cons: No cons that I can think of. The buttons on the side aren't a hassle for me, easy navigation, just use your 4 fingers, it isn't a bothersome as some put it. The stand is nice, no wobbling as I tend to be careful around my rig.

Other Thoughts: Luckily I had an extra DVI cable to use. This doesn't come with one. They're only about 8$ anyway.

3 out of 5 eggsDell S2240M Nice but..with issues

Pros: I like this monitor the glossy screen like imac
but other user find glossy a disadvantage,
-it's thin slim monitor
-I like the fine color

Cons: I'm glad I found the issue earlier where it is still covered by
a limited return warranty.
Researched about this model that it has an internal issue
with this kind of model,
the issue was the monitor just Turn Off/ON in seconds
and back again. if you encounter this issue, return it asap

Other Thoughts: I hate to return this monitor coz I like it but sad to say
I have to return it.. looking for a new brand keeping
away with this model.

I always trust Dell but this time dell must address this issue

5 out of 5 eggsHDMI, no problem.

Pros: Great back light, nice color control, glossy screen lets the colors pop.

Controls are simple and easy to get to - the buttons are on the side and out of the way. The power LED is a very muted white or slightly blue LED in the lower left corner that you forget about unless the entire room is dark and the screen goes black - then it does exactly what you need it to do, tells you the screen is on or in sleep mode (orange). It's one of those things that you really don't need to have illuminating your desk.

The base is small and doesn't take much realestate. It's flat on top so its still useful space. I wish more monitors respected my desk like this one does.

Cons: Some may not like the glossy screen due to glare from light sources in their environment - don't buy a glossy screen if you work with daylight windows behind you or have lights you can't turn off or move (office) that are positioned in a way to cause glare. The lack of an HDMI port is easily fixed.

Other Thoughts: HDMI to DVI cables exist and working great - cheap on NewEgg and other placed. If you can't survive with an HDMI cable - this monitor is still an option.

Calibrate your computer to get the most out of this monitor. Mac and Windows both have very easy to use color calibration utilities built in - USE THEM. This monitor can display beautiful images if you let it.
