This monitor has excellent color, resolution and clarity. The overall design is aesthetically pleasing but the performance and image quality are what's most impressive.
No, it does not have built in speakers nor does it have USB ports but if you want a beautiful monitor at a budget price this monitor would be hard(or impossible) to beat.

Good value, consistent color, very thin bezel.
Posted by: n3elz from: on
I bought these for gaming but I wanted IPS for photo editing. I have three of these on an Nvidia GTX1070 in a multi-monitor "surround" setup. These monitors have an exceptionally thin bezel which is great when you put them right up against one another.
I have a Spyder 3 color calibrator and these monitors after warmup were all pretty close and only required a little trimming. The three I got look pretty good next to each other even without calibration. They have plenty of brightness also but they do have a slight amount of "vignetting" on the left and right edges though nothing terrible.
The main downside I can see is a little bit of light leakage through the panel at black level. Blacks are not truly black so if you use these for editing you have to get your head tuned for that but again it's not an issue for me.
So, not a perfect monitor, but a very high quality one for the price (got them on sale) and the extremely narrow bezels (less than a 1/4 inch) make them great for a surround gaming setup.

Dell is typically a good brand!
Posted by: Saul from: on
I bought this monitor, because when I bought my pc it was recommended it to me at the time of purchase. Then three weeks later after I started using the monitor a green line poped up in the middle of the screen. I called Best Buy to asked about the return policy and they said unfortunately we can't help you because you are out of the 15 days return policy, so they had me calling the manufactured and I did. However the representative from the manufacture company (Dell) blamed the malfunction of the monitor to my new PC. I guess sometimes you just get a bad one.

Sharp and vibrant monitor
Posted by: KBE1 from: on
Favorite feature is the sort of semi-glossy screen that gives colors that extra pop and text that extra edge. I bought this monitor specifically because I dislike the look of full matte/anti-glare screens that seem standard on external monitors. No problems with glare even with a window just to the right of my desk. Text comes across as sharp and highly readable. Very thin bezels that would probably work great in a dual monitor setup, though I only purchased the one monitor. No height adjustment, which I knew, only tilt. I am using the Standard settings with brightness turned down a bit (full brightness is a bit overwhelming for my eyes while reading but may be useful for graphic applications). A few other preset modes for movies, gaming, paper, etc., but none of them particularly appealed to me.

Great monitor, great price, hidden controls...
Posted by: tjfx from: Fairfax, VA on
Bought this to replace my 24" LG monitor that died. In a hurry, I needed a monitor that would both connect to home PC via DVI and my work laptop via VGA. A quick search on-line found it at a great price at a local store. I called my wife who was shopping nearby. She picked it up, brought it home. I plugged it into the PC via DVI, beautiful picture. Then plugged in VGA and ... how do I switch inputs? I randomly pressed under and around the bezel and an on-screen menu popped up. I puzzled over the pictographs to figure out what to do, but in a few minutes had switched inputs and reduced brightness. That was a few months ago, it's been working flawlessly since!

Great monitor for a great price
Posted by: CleveFamily from: on
This was a great buy at around $100. We use it to supplement our 2in1 laptops when we want to use them like a desktop. The resolution is awesome for the web, Office products, Google, email, etc. Can connect with HDMI or VGA, so we can use for our various ages of laptops. We don't use it for gaming, so I can't comment on how good it would be for that. But videos play nicely.

Really Nice Monitor
Posted by: NaStilOnited from: on
This monitor is very nice with clear picture and response time. I know it is not the best response time but its still is very good for video and a little bit of gaming.

Hands-Down Sub-$100 Monitor
Posted by: reviewunit85 from: on
This monitor looks and feels much more expensive than the price tag would suggest. The nearly bezel-less, glossy display looks excellent and is a pleasure to use every time with its bright, vivid color reproduction. Build quality here is solid; the monitor is sturdy and the screen tilts (but does not go up and down). At $90, this monitor is simply a steal.
Do beware of a few things:
1. No HDMI, only VGA, which is perfectly fine for productivity tasks.
2. Glossy screen, although with anti-glare coating, could become difficult to look at if under direct sunlight.
If you're on a budget and looking for a monitor, this one is for you.
