5 out of 5 eggsAwesome turnaround

Pros: This turned out to be more than I expected for the price. Very functional, easy to use. I have it connected to 2 different computer sytems, and can easily change the inputs thru the front button panel.

Cons: It has no anti-glare. I notice it at first and after a few minutes I'm no longer aware of it.

Other Thoughts: Zake was amazing. I needed the order turned round quickly an they accommodated. They even acknowledged my request to expedite it thru with an email. Great job all!

5 out of 5 eggsDell S2740L after 1 year

Pros: The color quality is unbelievable on this screen. Its also bright, sharp, no blur or anything - video games and movies look great. (I play Titanfall pretty often on it - lots of super fast motion).

Cons: The screen has a very shiny finish which reflects light sources behind you. I had to put drapes over the windows in the back of my home office. Very reflective.

Other Thoughts: I have a really nice monitor at work, and was worried this monitor would wind up being inferior at its lower price point. Instead, this monitor blows my work monitor out of the water. Its at least equal to any monitor I have seen in terms of response time, sharpness, brightness - but the color is unbelievable. Noticeably better than even the best regular TFT LED screens. I want an IPS screen TV for my living room. Just look out for the glare from lights and windows behind you. That's the only drawback.

2 out of 5 eggsDissatisfied - Returned

Pros: it is big and bright with expected connection choices. It has a glossy screen. The one I own (see below) is beautiful and easily the nicest monitor I have ever owned. To put that into perspective, I have had a personal computer of some sort since 1986.

Cons: The brightness was low on the left and high on the right. The color was slightly more yellow on the left and more blue on the right. Then within the first week I started getting stuck pixels. I was worried that it would soon crash and burn completely.

Other Thoughts: I already own one of these that I have been using happily since 2012. It is possible that this one was just a lemon but I am not inclined to try again. Two years is a long time and perhaps something has changed. I have returned it and asked for a refund.

5 out of 5 eggsBest monitor I've owned

Pros: Glossy screen, edge-to-edge glass. This is going to be the reason you love this monitor or hate it. If you have a light source from behind you, you'll probably hate this monitor because of all the reflections. But if you can control the lighting from behind you then this will be the clearest and sharpest monitor you've ever seen!

This monitor is 1920x1080 (HD spec). Many 27" monitors are higher resolution, so some might be disappointed with 1920x1080. Me personally, 1920x1080 is a plus! I have always preferred monitors with a high pixel pitch.

Cons: My biggest complaint is the included cables - Dell gives you a VGA cable but no DVI or HDMI? Are you kidding me Dell!?! This is 2014, VGA is all but dead. Also, anyone spending money on a higher-end monitor like this isn't going to be using VGA. Spend the extra 50 cents and include DVI and/or HDMI cables.

The only other thing I would change about this monitor is the stand. I would like to have seen a vertical adjustment to raise the monitor up. I already had a platform I used to raise up my previous monitor so I used they on this monitor as well.

Other Thoughts: When you get this monitor, I highly recommend you lower the brightness. Factory default was something like 80%, I lowered it to 60% which is still plenty bright for my environment.

I'm usually not a fan of capacitive-touch buttons like this monitor uses for the power and menu controls. But I find that these buttons work really well.

Newer monitors like this are definitely light for their size. This 27" monitors weighs less than the 19" LCD it replaced.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat but not without a glaring flaw

Pros: Beautiful, vivid, smooth colors thanks to the IPS panel and glass front. Very low (less than one frame) input lag. Does not use PWM for backlight dimming, which ordinarily can cause flickering noticeable when quickly moving your eyes or moving your head. Works with standard 100x100 mounts.

Cons: The far right quarter of the screen is brighter than the rest on mine and causes colors to look lighter and slightly blue-tinted. Sadly, this seems to be a common problem with this monitor. While not ridiculously obvious, it can be noticeable on large blocks of any solid color and is frustrating once you know about it. It doesn't render the monitor unusable (except maybe for professional work) but a monitor this expensive really shouldn't have an issue like this.

Additionally, smooth, rapid movement of anything on screen will produce a noticeable black shadow behind it, mainly because of the slightly higher than average response time and because, according to some reviews, the panel is apparently overdriven.

Other Thoughts: Yes, the screen is very glossy. Almost mirror-like when off. This is not a con for me because I only use it in a pitch black environment. You should be aware of how many light sources are in the room you plan to use it in before purchasing.

Also, I've found alcohol-based, lint-free lens cleaning wipes are best for cleaning the glass, so a box of those are good to have around if you want to keep it pristine.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: Excellent monitor. No dead pixels. Beautiful colors. High quality construction. Awesome cost vs performance. Awesome for gaming running SLI 680s, truly remarkable.

Cons: Some people might not like the glare, not an issue for me at all. Love the glass front.

5 out of 5 eggsNice colors

Pros: Nice colors, pretty accurate out of box after reducing brightness to 44

glass screen makes images "pop", sharp too

very low input, good for pc gaming

Cons: glass screen means sharper images at the expense of reflections. You MUST control + limit your light source (shut curtains or blinds) in front of this monitor (to reduce reflections).

Other Thoughts: price has gone up....this monitor is well worth $300, but not much more, ( it is1920 x 1080, its not 2560 x 1440)
