    Review based on standard purchase price of $230

    I purchased this monitor for $120 on sale. I will save time for everyone and say this monitor simply is not worth $230. Do not pay that price. It appears you are paying for the looks of the physical monitor more than the performance. As always my negatives come first as they may be deal breakers for some and the positives won't matter. 1. The monitor has no vesa, nor a stand that can adjust beyond tilting the screen. I knew this purchasing it and was ok with that at $120. At $230 it is inexcusable. 2. The monitor has 6ms delay gray to gray which is standard for an IPS but the input lag in total is between 20-30ms. Way too high for a PC monitor. 3. My monitor has a major flashlight issue on the bottom right hand corner. It is very noticeable due to the rest of the monitor being ink black and beautiful. I was very sad to see this and tried to get past it but I can't. It consumes 25% of the screen Positives 1. It is a beautiful monitor from a physical perspective. The near frameless design looks awesome and the stand though non adjustable looks awesome. 2. The color reproduction in the areas where the flashlight doesn't exist is awesome. Movies and video games look great. 3. Though it isn't true 4k and isn't real HDR it can process those signals which allows you to tune the HDR white and black levels in a game that has HDR. Overall this produces a nicer picture. You are also hard pressed to tell the difference between real and fake 4k at this size. My end thoughts are this. Buy this monitor if the following applies to you. It is found on sale for $120 or less You absolutely cannot live without a frameless design You don't need vesa or any adjustable features outside of tilt You don't require a low input lag monitor for gaming or can accept the 20-30ms input lag You are willing to take the gamble to see if you get a monitor without flashlighting Essentially you want a cheap frameless IPS monitor for work, HD movies, or HD gaming. Again that is only if it is on sale $230 is too much for what you are getting.

    VGA port awesome but HDMI port washed out

    I am greatly disappointed in the 2 units I received and the 2 subsequent in an exchanged. All 4 monitors have an IDENTICAL DEFECT in their respective HDMI port, but perfect in their respective VGA port. I had 2 side by side, 1 with HDMI connection and 1 with VGA connection to the same PC. The VGA connected display is AWESOME, but the HDMI connected display PALES in comparison - colors look washed out. To rule out my PC video ports as the cause, I hooked the monitors up with a NVidia GTX 745 video cards in the same PC. No luck. Also, I tried 3 different HDMI cables including the one included in the Dell monitor box. No difference. So I am forced to the conclusion that the problem lies with the HDMI port of the monitor itself. Therefore, it is an AWESOME MONITOR if the VGA port is used for connection. Unfortunately, the colors with the HDMI port is washed out by comparison. Normally, HDMI connection is better. This is just the opposite. I am very disappointed and will have to return them again. In my attached photo, the right monitor was connected via the VGA port, versus the right half of the left which was connected via the HDMI port. Notice the much better COLOR SATURADTION on the right with the VGA connection, than that on the left. Hats off to Best Buy for their exchange and return policy. I highly recommend Best Buy. I will wait till Best Buy receive inventory that does not have this HDMI port defect to buy it again.

    MacBook Display Quality

    When I purchased this monitor, I wasn’t expecting much given that the dynamic contrast ratio was only 8M:1 when all the others are 50M:1 or something like that. But I realized the DYNAMIC contrast ratio is all fluff to get you to buy it, the NATIVE contrast ratio is pretty much the same across all monitors. The bezels on this monitor are insanely small. It has an infinity edge display (look it up) it’s pretty great! The quality of the colors are superb too, I have a MacBook Pro 2015 and the colors are neck and neck and I love the MacBook display so that says a lot! 60Hz isn’t bad it’s eh. I would have loved for this monitor to have speakers but oh well! Another thing, the height isn’t adjustable, only the tilt and it sits a little high in my opinion I wish it could go a little lower. Yes it comes with a HDMI cable (at least the new ones should). If you throw 4K at it, it’ll display it but obviously it will do it at 1080p. The good thing is that it doesn’t just turn off if the resolution is greater than 1080p, it downscales it so you get an image either way. I love this monitor for $120, but for $220 I think you can find a better one out there.

    Great Monitor

    I purchased this Monitor a few days ago and am very pleased. First off, it’s simple sleek design is slim and beautiful. Second and more importantly, the display is equally beautiful. Assembly is fast and easy. Several people have mentioned unsatisfactory results using the HDMI port. I have the monitor connected to a basic Windows laptop using the HDMI port and it works great but it’s not as simple as just plugging it in. You must load the proper drivers (included on an installation CD) and adjust the screen resolution to the correct setting (from your computer’s display settings). Before doing that it looked horrible on my system as well. Rest assured, there is nothing wrong with the HDMI function of this monitor as long as you set up your computer properly. A few other things to be aware of... There is only one HDMI port, not two as Best Buy advertises and though an HDMI cable is included, there is no VGA cable in the box. Beautiful monitor and currently priced at $120. I love it!

    Fits my height requirement

    My old monitor died on me so I went to my local Best Buy to find a replacement. Since I have a height requirement for where the monitor would sit, I had to be careful not to buy one that was too tall. This was the only one that fit my height requirement. The length is longer than I like, I lost some space in my hutch but I can live with that. I wish I had the time to do a little more shopping around as Best Buy was very limited in their in-store selection because on the Dell site I was able to find more selection and better prices. I decided to keep the one from Best Buy as I did not want to sent the time returning it and having to order from Dell and wait for delivery. The screen is very clear and sharp and the color is good. Although it is a little longer than I expected, it fits into the alloted space.

    Almost Perfect

    Absolutely beautiful monitor with modern frameless design. Some things to be away of: -Does not have two HDMI ports as stated in BestBuy and Dell specifications. One HDMI and one VGA only. -Comes with HDMI cable only (no VGA cable as mention is specs or other review) -Has brick type power supple and cord, not a direct tonoulet cord. -Got two and they did not line in precisely at the top, but not horrible. -No VESA mount but adapter is available, But cost/hassle and added thickness for adapter means you are better getting something with VESA built in if that is what you want. Despite all of these points the look of the monitor and the image quality is excellent.

    I was looking to buy these monitors for Day Trading--meaning I would need multiple monitors. Best Buy page describes it with TWO HDMI ports. IT ONLY HAS ONE. The description online was faulty, I was a little angry at first because I thought I didn't need to buy a F USB-M DVI to plug into my PC just so I can have dual-monitors working. (I have several HDMI wires at home). I checked on the DELL WEBSITE for these monitors and I saw where the error was. Dell website had LISTED the specs. Ex: 1. VGA 2. HDMI ----Whoever was copying the Dell Page for the Best Buy page probably copy/pasted it and didn't bother to check the monitors themselves. The picture advertised was correct, however you MUST zoom in the bottom view photo to clarify the specs-- it really only had one HDMI port. :( Anyway, I'm still happy with these monitors because they are beautiful and works very well.

    Excellent monitor

    This monitor, a replacement for a several years old LG monitor I also purchased at Best Buy, turned out to be an excellent purchase. I went to the store thinking I would buy another LG, but they were sold out of the one I wanted. The sales lady pointed me to the Dell monitor, same price, same size as the LG I thought I wanted. This was sort of an emergency purchase as my old monitor died and it's a little hard to use the computer without a monitor. I am very pleased with the new Dell monitor. The resolution is precise and produces very clear text, photos, graphics, etc. I hadn't realized how far monitors had progressed until I installed the new Dell. I am very pleased with my purchase.
