    Delivers As Promised

    I picked up two of these monitors on sale a couple weeks back from BestBuy. The reviews seemed solid, and 1080P, 6ms refresh @ 60 Hz is all I was looking for. I just picked up an old gaming PC (i5-2500K on an Asrock P67 Extreme4 Gen3 MoBo with 16GB DDR3 RAM running a GTX-670) so I wasn't looking for a 4K at 120 Hz gaming experience. My PC has one HDMI and two DVI-D, so I went hunting for a HDMI to DVI-D adapter. Of course, BestBuy was out but they were more than willing to sell me a HDMI / DVI-D cord for $35.00. Highway robbery, but I wanted to get the monitors up and running that night, so I paid and left with the two monitors and overpriced cord. The box includes the monitor, stand, small baggy with thumb screw to secure the two together, one power block with outlet cord, one HDMI cable, one cable management block that pushes into the stand to keep cords from slipping down, and a single "IKEA like" instruction page on assembly. I know not having a full manual is a big deal to some people, but honestly, assembly is pretty intuitive. 1) Remove the packaging and plastic protective sheets. 2) Slide the stand into the groove at the base of the monitor till it clicks. 3) Use the thumb screw with convenient tab to finger tighten the monitor and stand together. 4) Set monitor on desk or table. 5) Run input cable (HDMI or VGA) with the appropriate adapters, and plug into PC and monitor accordingly. 6) Plug in power block with outlet cord into wall. 7) Turn on PC. 8) Press small power button at the bottom of the monitor (bottom right hand corner) if monitor does not automatically power on with PC boot sequence. This is my first set of IPS monitors, and after hearing all the hype and horror stories, I have to say I like them. These dual monitors are in my home office, and the copious amounts of (sometimes glaring) natural light doesn't wash out the picture at all. Images are crisp and clean. The monitors are VERY bright even on power saving mode, which is a preference for me, but some might find it a bit over bearing. The slim bezels are par for the course these days on HD IPS monitors, and I love the sleek look. Also, I generally run both of them in surround off my GPU at 3840x1080 and while I thought the middle split would degrade my experience, I find it wonderful now. So much screen real estate!!! If these monitors were still on sale, I'd grab a third one!! Again, about two weeks in and I'm very happy with my purchase. I'll be mounting these in the next week or so with a VEGA adapter (just Google VEGA adapter for Dell S2318 if you don't believe me) and dual monitor wall or desk edge mount to clear my desk space, so I'll update once I do that. I know a large chunk of the audience reading this (assuming you made it down this far) are asking, "That's great, Daemlar! Glad you like your new monitors, but CAN IT GAME??!! (assuming that six year old relic rig you bought can manage to download Steam, of course)." Well yes, Mr. Dual GTX1080Ti in SLI!!! It can game... for as much as my rig can pump out, which means most games at medium to high settings 1080P. For that, it works wonderfully. So if you're a casual gamer with a modest rig like me, these monitors are great. In summary, a 23" IPS monitor for $110.00 is a great deal. Dell has put out a strong, budget monitor for us casual gamers, typical home PC owners, and spreadsheet junkies. Even at the full $179.00 they're back up to now, I probably would opt for this monitor as opposed to its various competitors in that price range.

    Outstanding Monitor for the price! (On Sale)

    Keep in mind my review is based on me getting this monitor on sale. Full price is $179.99, when I made my purchase the monitor was on sale for $109.99 (it's an average deal at full price compared to other models you could buy for that same money). Had I bought this at full price I would probably drop my review down to 3 Star: PROS: HDMI port HD Display HDMI cord in box CONS: Not 4K Only one HDMI port No height adjustment. This monitor is a significant upgrade for me. Prior to buying this I had been using an 8 year old HP fl905 LCD monitor. This monitor give a bright, colorful display with easy hookup via HDMI. It's fairly light weight (much more so than my old HP monitor), had a sturdy base, and can be angled forward & back. The height adjustment is a minor annoyance. It's setting level with my computer desk, and I'd like for it to be a bit higher, but I can live with it.

    This is a very good monitor. Large viewable screen with the crisp bright picture. I read the reviews and saw how favorably it was reviewed at full price and liked the idea of getting it almost half off. My only concern or complaint would be that it does not have any speakers. I didn't entirely need speakers but I feel like the sales associate should've mentioned it when I was inquiring about this product. If I knew, I probably would have purchased a different product. Also the purchase process was amature hour. I live directly between 2 stores. I callled to verify it was in stock and asked to hold it (I'll even pay). They said they would but there was plenty so they didn't need to. 14 minutes later (when I arrived) they couldn't find them. They sold 4, the couldn't find 3. I asked about the 2 open box listings they had. They couldn't find those either. Also the height isn't adjustable. No sound/no adjustability is why it gets 4* instead of 5*. It does have a nice pic though. I'd also knock down To 3 stars if I considered the hassle associated with purchase and incorrect answers to questions I asked but just based on the product, it's a good product.

    I was looking for a 23 inch monitor to be used on a small desk mostly as an expansion screen for my laptop monitor through HDMI. Went to the store to check it out in person. I am using this mostly while working with audio production/editing software such as Cubase. It resolves details very good even when sitting at a short distanced from the screen. it also does a great job with movies steaming on the computer. The quality is very good, it is thin and the LED screen goes almost all the way to the edges of the monitor frame which optimizes lateral space on my desk for audio monitors and other gear. Also the stand it comes with is stable and has the perfect size because it allows me to place the monitor right on top of the center of the desk surface where there is a 2" diameter circular opening for cable management, and it also provides perfect visual positioning (height). Very satisfactory results so far. Set up was a breeze.

    Great Except For 1 Thing

    This is a very good monitor, the resolution is crisp, I really like the slim look with minimum borders and also the slim stand, plugging is easy. The only thing I don't like is that it hurts my eyes to look at it, there is like a very strong brightness and I had to dim it to the max and play with the contrast even more than with my older Dell monitor. I wish they would make monitors with eye sight in mind. I'm gonna buy some computer glasses and hope they'll protect my eyes. Otherwise, I'm very happy with my purchase and Best Buy had a competitive price. I didn't take any additional warranty as my old Dell monitor has been working now for 8 years, I only had to change it because I bought the very latest computer from Dell and it was not compatible. I did a pick up at the store and it worked out like a charm! I like that my item was set aside at the counter and that there was a different line for the pick ups, so I didn't have to wait in line.

    I do a lot of network diagrams using MS Visio, so having a large screen with great resolution is a must for me. This monitor is bright, has an excellent response rate, and the full HD makes it versatile enough for both my business and personal use. Pros: 1. Good number of customizations available in the menu 2. Multiple preset modes from which to choose 3. Ability to select between "Normal" and "Fast" response times 4. HDMI and VGA Cons: 1. Really wish it had two HDMI inputs so I could have both my personal PC and business workstation connected simultaneously. However, I just use and HDMI switch as a work around. 2. No VESA mounting capability Overall: The monitor is great for the cost. If you want higher-end features...fork over the extra cash and get either the Dell P2415Q, or an Alienware Gaming Monitor.

    Purchased this monitor on sale and it's one of the best monitors I bought so far. The colors and deep blacks are excellent and the clarity is superb. The tilt is good, as it can be tilted up and down and the metal stand is really steady and well put together. Doesn't have built in internal speakers, but it does have an audio in and out port so you can plug in external speakers to it and you're good to go. Also has an HDMI port as well, which can be used as a computer monitor, or hook up a gaming console to it. This is a great product for a really good price. Dell monitors are one of the best monitors out there in my opinion. I would recommend this monitor to anyone looking to buy a monitor without breaking the bank.

    Monitor is great - very clear and crisp resolution. I am a photographer and need to be able to see details in my images. Unfortunately after having the monitor for about 20 days, the HDMI cable, malfunctioned/ceased to work. It took me a few days to figure out that it was the HDMI cable and not something else. I purchased a new and more expensive HDMI cable at Best Buy, and it now works fine. The sales guy at Best Buy told me I only have 15 days to "return" an item and I was past the 15 days. This is not a return in my book, it was a malfunctioning part that came straight out of a new unopened box.
