Dell P2314H Black 23

3 out of 5 eggs Good monitor but poor text display - not really a professional series monitor. 10/11/2013

This review is from: Dell P2314H Black 23" 8ms (gray to gray) Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 250 cd/m2 DCR 2,000,000:1 (1000:1)

Pros: Images look nice and clear. Monitor is sturdy, setup is easy. The different adjustments possible are nice (height, tilt, vertical rotation, and swivel).
Usb ports are nice - you can connect the keyboard and mouse directly to the monitor.

The brightness is more than enough - for normal usage I had to decrease the brightness to around 50% from the default setting of 75%.

Video playback, image quality, etc. is all top notch.

Cons: When I first started using the new Dell P2314H monitor the issue with the text is the first thing I noticed. Since I bought this for text editing and work applications (it is marketed as a professional series monitor) I am not pleased with how the text appears (it appears slightly grainy - it's hard to describe).

The text appears slightly fuzzy - it's something I couldn't adjust even with going through the cleartype setup process in Windows 7 and 8.

I connected to the monitor using both a display port connection and a DVI connection and for both I couldn't get the text to appear very clearly.

I feel like 1080p is not high enough of a resolution for a 23" monitor, especially for doing office type work (coding, modeling, word, excel, etc.).

Maybe 1080p is enough PPI (pixel density) for 22" monitor but not for anything higher, especially since I already use 1080p resolution on as small as 15" screens.

Other Thoughts: Connecting through the VGA interface doesn't produce great results but this is to be expected.

A bundled DVI cable would be nice.

HDMI would be nice but none of Dell's P or U series offers this historically.

Speakers would be nice but again this is something that is not historically offered although you could buy a soundbar.
