Pros: Good refresh rate. Good contrast (after you turn off the "Dynamic" aka fake contrast). Decent build quality but see Cons.
Cons: I bought two of these a year ago. First one started malfunctioning last June. Now the other one is failing. Terrible. I paid $650 a piece for these back then, total loss. I'll be submitting for warranty return but what to do without a monitor...compute in the dark?!?!
Also the menu buttons suck. They stick and make navigation of the menu a huge hassle.
Other Thoughts: I've had better luck with cheap monitors. DO NOT BUY!!!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked OK for a few monitors.
Cons: I purchased this monitor in August of 2013. I installed it with no trouble, and it worked for four months. Then the right side of the screen turned green. Kinda weird, not something I've seen before (and I've seen a lot -- I've been in I.T. for 10 years), but it's obviously some kind of hardware failure.
By this time, it's out of Newegg's normal return policy, but "no problem", it's under Dell's 3-year warranty, right? Well... Maybe. I called Dell, got sent to the wrong department, then sent to what may have been the right department, but they told me that this monitor (which I purchased new from Newegg) is registered to a different company. They won't do a thing for me until I get on their web site and "transfer ownership". I did, in fact, get on their web site. "Ownership Transfer" is in a really weird place, consistent with Dell's long-standing "we don't want anyone to actually find anything on our web site" policy. For anyone unlucky enough to be following in my footsteps, ignore the main content of the page, even though it looks like what you want, go to the top nav bar, under "Warranty", and choose "Ownership Transfer" there.
The "Ownership Transfer" page asks for info about the previous owner. Of course, I don't know anything about any previous owner. I bought the monitor new, remember. I put "n/a" in the required fields, then entered my info. It tells me that the request "has been submitted to the appropriate Dell department" and that it will take 10-15 days to process.
So, yeah, now I'm waiting 10-15 days for Dell to process an electronically submitted change request for their electronic database. What are they supposed to be doing? Phoning whoever they mistakenly have in their database to find out if I've stolen the monitor? Filing a police report? What?
Meanwhile, everything I put on the right side of the monitor has this weird green tinge to it. Thank goodness it's not completely nonfunctional, or I'd have to go buy a new one (from a different manufacturer, thank you very much) just so I could continue working.
Other Thoughts: The monitor was ok at first, picture was nothing spectacular, but ok. However, given the lack of 1) Quality, 2) Warranty and 3) Support, I'd recommend not taking the risk.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Seemingly better construction than the 30" version. Equally high resolution.
Cons: It exhibits awful light bleed just like the 30" version. It's also far too glossy. The colors are off and the whites are so bright that they drown out everything else. When you turn the brightness down, the screen turns into a mirror. Also, did I mention this thing is expensive?
Other Thoughts: There just doesn't seem to be a way to win with this monitor and other Dell monitors I've tried. Dell has gone overboard with the gloss and brightness. I can't recommend this monitor at any price point.READ FULL REVIEW
