5 out of 5 eggs Good value if correctly applied. 06/06/2013

This review is from: Dell 469-3937 E2013H Black 20" 5ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 1,000:1

Pros:

Cheap for a monitor with these specs. Aptly suitable for a workstation monitor in a compatible environment. DVI and VGA capable which is a big plus to me. Reliable so far. Good range of adjustments for video display.

If you're buying monitors for business workstations this monitor will do a decent job on text and graphics display.

This monitor is a good choice cost-wise if you need multiple monitors or augmentation for a primary monitor.

Cons:

It's what you would expect from a cheaper monitor so maybe not a con but "heads up", you're not buying a high-end super-brilliant, super responsive monitor. This is a base model and it acts and looks like a base model. It should be evaluated for it's specified capabilities and it's real world performance compared to that reference.

Unlike my high-end Dell primary monitor which uses touch sensitive buttons, the controls on this monitor are mechanical. The buttons are activated by pressing the right side of the button and they hinge/pivot on the left. If you push straight down you'll probably think they don't work right.

If you're thinking you'll buy this monitor and get a high-performance monitor cheap then that's your fault not the monitor's or the manufacturer's. The specs are very clearly stated and accurate.

The low price and Dell name probably induce people to buy this monitor that shouldn't.

It's not impressively bright or white.

Other Thoughts:

I wouldn't buy this for a primary monitor. My computer has six monitors- 2 old Princetons (I replaced the factory caps), a 32" TV, 2 of this model Dell and one very good Dell Ultra-Thin monitor as the primary.

If you're looking for a decent budget monitor for your kid(s), a security camera screen, a cheaper monitor for everyday but not long duration use or secondary monitors in a multiple monitor application this monitor will do the job very well.

With six monitors on a single computer cost is a major factor for me. A function of cost is how often a monitor needs to be replaced. Longevity is important and that's why I bought this monitor. So far it's held up well, even being moved across the continent lately when I re-located.

Don't buy WD green drives for a system hard drive, don't buy a cheap video card for a primary card, and don't buy this monitor for a primary monitor if you work at a computer all day and this is your only monitor.
