This monitor is excellent. I spent alot of time tinkering this at my local electronic store and ended up buying it.
I bought this to replace my ViewSonic VX2250WM-LED 22-Inch and the Dell S2330mx I'd say is well executed in terms of quality control. The viewsonic has that brightness or lighting making the image quality less crisp or poor, dull color so to speak.

The quality that this monitor output is superb. You can control how you want your image to look from saturation, contrast, dynamic contrast, and the preset such as games, movies, multimeda, etc...

At this price it's worth the purchase. My Xbox is hooked into this monitor as well as my PS3. The quality is just perfect.
It comes with a DVI/HDMI adapter too so you're ready to hook this up. Although you need to buy a set of speakers/audio system and audio adapter/cables for your xbox/ps3. This monitor does not have a built-in speakers and even if it did I would still purchase a set of speakers because tiny speakers on a monitor wont do me justice.

I can only think of one issue or "CON" about this product, it wobbles/flimsy. A tiny movement from the table and it wobbles. The stand grips the surface very well though. And I spent a lot of time playing with the option/menu, I wish it came with a simple remote.

Anyways, if you're looking for a good 23-inch monitor that has a cheap tag price, this is the one.

This is a great monitor. I bought two for my new computer and they worked perfectly from day one.

Pros:
Looks good
Good build quality
Amazing picture
Thin and light weight
LED
Price
DVI to HDMI adapter included

Cons:
The only con I have is the power button is a little weird to get used to. It's a touch button that you have to have your finger fully on or it won't notice it. If you just tap it with your finger tip it won't turn on or off. But it's not really a big issue and definitely not worth losing a star over.

In terms of a performance to price ratio, this monitor definitely stands above the other monitors I've looked at in a similar price and size range. I purchased this to use in my office at school. I do a lot of programming and CAD work so a good screen was an absolute necessity for me, but I didn't want to bring something expensive to my shared office. I program on an all black background with white letters so I wanted an anti-glare screen with good black levels, while it had enough resolution to use for CAD work. The only other screen I can really compare this to is my Samsung 42" TV and my 15" Macbook Pro anti-glare hi res screen. Relative to the samsung TV, the colors are slightly more washed out BUT it is only noticeable when compared side by side. When you pull it away it is difficult to tell a difference. Compared to my macbook pro anti-glare screen, the blacks are similar, but the whites are very different. When viewing both screens side by side, the macbook pro is MUCH brighter than the Dell monitor. Also, there is this sort of graininess (for lack of a better word) with the Dell monitor when viewing all white or white dominant pages. My macbook pro screen does not have this graininess. This starts to bother me when I write reports in Microsoft Word, or read a lot journal papers and articles on this monitor. However, it is something I will live with, considering I paid 150$ for this at my local Microcenter. When viewing side to side, it is difficult to notice any discoloration when viewing an all black screen, however all white screens will begin to show a red and purple glare viewing it maybe 30 to 40 degrees off along the horizontal direction. Vertically, I would say around 10 degrees before it starts to become unbearable to look at. These numbers are very nomimal and the point I'm trying to get across is that you don't want to look at this monitor too far off the center axis. You'll get away with the side viewing up to around 50 degrees. Like the others have said, this monitor is very flimsy and thin. My desk is very sturdy and does not shake so this is not a concern for me. The other screen I was looking to purchase was the LG LED monitors for around this price range, however I opted away from them due to the uneven lighting reported in many reviews when viewing pages in all black.

In conclusion, this monitor gets the job done for what I need it to do, which is an even all black screen with decent enough black levels that won't drive my crazy, and a bright enough screen to use under lighted conditions. Although I have a slight annoyance when using it in conjunction with my macbook high-res antiglare screen, it is something I will live with due to the cheapness of this display. It is cheap enough where I feel comfortable bringing it to a shared office but of enough quality where I can use it for coding and CAD work. I take off a star due to the graininess when viewing lighter colors and the low brightness level.

I love the look of this monitor, it's big, super thin, 'clean' looking and the brezel is as thin as it needs to be. The color reproduction on this Dell is great (after messing with the settings, as usual with tvs and monitors turning the brightness and contrast way down) and the picture is as sharp as can be. I even disagree with a lot of reviews (online, mostly not on amazon) that complain about the base being flimsy. Mine isn't flimsy or cheap feeling at all. But my major complaint with this monitor is the light bleed through on the top, bottom, left and right side of the screen. I purchased this monitor to be used basically as a tv, its wired to my laptop and blu-ray player and whenever there is a dark scene (doesn't even have to be that dark) there is a 2 inch strip on the left/right and 1+ inch strip on the top/bottom (the whole length of the screen) that is much brighter than the rest of the screen. I notice a little light bleed on my 2 year old Vizio LCD but really only when the camera is panning (and surprisingly no bleed through on my 4 year old Westinghouse LCD...) this monitor screams light bleed even without movement. It is very distracting. The reason I think I'll hang onto it is because the price was great and the color and response time are outstanding. I might change my mind in the next couple weeks and get a replacement because this one just might be a lemon.. Any other owners of this monitor have the same issue?

EDIT - I should also note that the top and bottom of the screen suffer from discoloration in a dark scene where the light bleed is... Its blue and again pretty distracting. I waited a few days to see if the problem would go away, but it didn't. I contacted amazon and they are hooking me up with a different monitor, a 24" Viewsonic. They are letting me keep the Dell until I get the new monitor (so I'm not without a monitor) so I will be able to compare them side by side, and will update with pictures when I get the Viewsonic. Again, this could just be a lemon monitor I'm not really sure, but amazon didn't have it in stock anymore so couldn't send a replacement of the same model. It's a shame, the picture is AWESOME on the Dell, except with a darker scene.

Note: Dell just came out with a new generation of the S series monitors, so the price on their last generation of S series went down.

First impressions: Impressed with the form and feature of this 23" monitor. Comparable monitors in this price range are typically $20-$50 more by solid brands. I was really happy this came with a DVi to HDMI converter so I could plug the monitor in via HDMI and really make the picture pop. The DVi is still solid on its own and gives an equally vivid picture. I just prefer HDMI.

Do note that there are no internal speakers on the monitor, so you will need something external for sound. I personally like this because monitor speakers tend to be very tinny sounding.

The computer I hooked this up to is an Alienware X51-i7 series. I am going to try and hook my xbox to it.

Pros
-Great response time
-Crisp display
-Super thin, great for tight spaces
-Easy to move around
-Vivid picture with all different types of operations (Gaming, Photoshop work, Netflix, etc...)

Cons
-Monitor base is flimsy. You might benefit from either wall mounting it or somehow weighing down the base
-The touch buttons can be a little bit of a pain, but function OK.

Neither one of the cons are enough to dock it a full star.

This is a review for the Dell S2330MX 23" Ultra-Slim VGA Monitor.

The reasons that influenced my decision to purchase this monitor were: price, screen size, advertised performance (2ms response time) and brand name recognition, not necessarily in that order.

The monitor looks and works as advertised, it includes a VGA and DVI port, plus a DVI-HDMI adapter/dongle is included if you want to connect it via an HDMI cable. The monitor is very light and really thin and doesn't really take that much real estate on a desk, compared to other monitors of the same screen size.

I liked the way the buttons work. They are sensitive to the touch and have great response. The monitor also has buttons to adjust settings plus a dedicated button with color pre-sets for movies, gaming, etc.

Documentation and drivers are included on the CD. I did not require the driver CD to install the monitor, it was all plug and play.

The monitor base requires assembly, but it's not difficult to do. However, this is where the product has its flaw. The display is ultra sensitive to any sign of vibration, be it by typing or even moving the mouse around normally. I had to double-check the monitor stand just to make sure it wasn't loose, but it seems to be built that way. It took me a while to get used to the jitter, however, your experience may differ. I would've given it a 4.5 star rating, but the other features compensate for this flaw.

Other than the jitter "flaw", the monitor works great, and it's a good deal. The color quality, sharpness and overall performance with the games I have played so far has been absolutely better than the older Sony LCD TV I used to own.

As others have mentioned, the stand for this monitor is something less than solid. If you're considering this monitor, you probably want to make sure you'll be using it on a solid desk or similar surface. It does not have wall mount capability. The base mounts solidly to the vertical support arm, but the vertical support arm clicks into a slot on the bottom of the monitor body, and that slot is a rather loose fit. Since I have a 1970s office secretary desk, it's not a problem for me, but I did downgrade the rating to 4 stars for the loose stand-to-monitor connection slot.

If the stand is not an issue for you, you'll like this monitor, especially at the discount price ($140) I paid. The picture quality is very good, with no dead pixels or other issues I can see. It has connections for DVI, HDMI (via the included DVI-to-HDMI adapter/dongle), or VGA, so that should cover almost every situation. The only adjustment of the screen angle is the vertical swivel; no horizontal swivel (although it's easy enough to just slide the monitor base on the top of your desk), and no ability to raise or lower the monitor on its mounting arm (although I also did not have any need to do this). If you're looking for a 23-inch wide-screen monitor with a quality picture and you can live with the loose connection slot, you can't go wrong at this price.

Rather than go into a lot of technical details, which can be found elsewhere, here are the best and worst usage qualities of the Dell S2330MX 23" Ultra-Slim VGA Monitor:

PROS:

* Rich, deep, sumptuous color
* Bright, yet easy on the eyes
* Easy setup
* Drivers already available in Windows 7 & 8
* All the necessary connection options in the back
* Lightning-fast response times
* Stylishly thin
* Outstanding value

CONS:

* Lightweight base can cause the monitor to wobble on surfaces with some give

Dell makes some of the best monitors for the money. This one is no exception. It's possibly the best monitor I've ever owned, and I've had dozens. Best of all, it's a steal for the money.

Highly recommended.

Vivid colors. Very fast (2MS) response time makes it great for gaming. Best overall product I found for the money. Paid only $139 for a 23", 2MS monitor.
