before i jump into the review i want to list the rig used to connect these beautiful displays to explain that this issue may be card specific, and you may or may not encounter my experiences with these monitors

Rig:
I had the latest drivers for my GPU and DX11 and DX9
Operating System: Windows 8 Enterprise X64 Bit
CPU: Intel I7 3930k Not overclocked
GPU: Nvidia MSI Geforce GTX 680 Ports- DVI-I DVI-D Displayport HDMI
Motherboard: Gigabyte X79-UP4

Amount Purchased:
4 Dell E2414H, and plan to buy 4 more!

Purpose for Purchase:
3D Motion Graphic Design and Rendering. Web Development and Music Production, and Nvidia Surround Gaming

Pictures of Setup:

Lights on- [...]
Lights off- [...]

Review:

The Good:

the monitors are easy to setup no more than 3 parts with no tools needed (did NOT Mount them, though this is available)
the picture quality is absolutely stunning!
the color profile for graphic design is perfect and may be viewed from any angle.
the monitor stand is reliable and will stay in place where ever you see fit.
the monitor options are easily adjustable and work well with across board media.
very light weight and and no hassle to move around or re-situate
no gloss or shine to distract the eyes while working or watching entertainment
cheap and affordable, and cheaper then the Dell Website cost by a huge margin.
Ships quick and safe with no issue.

The Bad:

upon receiving these monitors you will find that there is a driver cd inside the box, and as usual is it outdated, which is no problem, because windows will inform you of an updated version and install that. The software is nice, it will allow you to control multiple displays without having to use the buttons on the monitor for each one to match any changes you may want to make. However, the main issue with this software is after so many minutes the displays turn on and you must restart the machine or unplug and plug them back in to be detected again because they have gone into an off mode which cannot be changed.

this being the issue i tried multiple fixes like checking advanced power settings and also checking the sleep options under the software. Now there are two ways to fix this, 1 either uninstall the drivers or 2 turn off the software from msconfig (if in windows 7,) or use task manager startup (windows 8) and disable the dell software from start up that controls the profiles for the displays. if you decide to take option 2 that is because you would like to keep the ability to change for example brightness across multiple displays without doing this one by one.

one other small thing that may bother some, is that when the monitors are not in use the power button will flash on and off every so many seconds, users who may be in a dark room this can cause a slight annoyance, even though this may be little i would still like to include any details about the product as i can.

Overall:

all in all these monitors are absolutely amazing, stunning for all purpose use in every field, and considering the price from Dell website is $200 which was originally $230, i would have to say these monitors are a steal and worth every penny! if you are looking for crisp perfect cheap 24' displays these are a must buy!

I was initially doubtful on the Hr series that started showing up on Amazon SKUs as it was being sold cheaper around November 2013, thinking they might mean "refurbished" - but happily that was not the case. I don't know why they decided on using "r" which a lot of manufacturers code their refurb products with.
I've bought a dozen of these since as they went to sale for $99 to $139 during the holidays from different vendors. Dell has gotten green on packaging - no foam on these - all cardboard. Same 3 year warranty.

H means they include a DVI cable along with VGA and AC plug
Hr or HR - no DVI cable but with VGA and AC plug

Viewing angles on these cheap LCD panels are not great - but managers actually DESIRE these screens as it offers limited angle viewing so they don't necessarily require privacy screens on top.

Fonts at 1080 are just right with this sized screen, and are sharp. Great for workplace upgrades at a cheaper pricepoint - and excellent Dell chat replacement process for warranty at support.dell.com

Great product. I have two sitting on my desk side-by-side. Only problem is text looks a little washed out compared to what I am used to but I'm getting used to it and starting to feel as if it may just be my imagination. I have two gooseneck desk lights hovering over my desk and the Samsung monitors these replaced were washed out at the corners by the lights. Not so with the new Dells, even though the Dells are larger and are closer to the lights. Lovem. If you are reading this to help make a purchasing decision then I say go for it!

I purchased this a while back to serve as a second monitor to the 27" Dell. While not an IPS panel, still a great looking monitor that has suited my needs perfectly. Incredibly light and thin, was not at all worried about wall mounting this monitor.

Considering purchasing a third for the full panoramic set up but still on the fence. I know without a doubt that this will be the third to match the other Dells in my set up. Highly recommended.

Fantastic wide 1080 monitor.
Very solid build quality.
I've always stayed away from Dell products but this monitor is very much worth the money.
Viewing angles are very good as well.

I just set up this monitor and find that it's not quite as good as I'd hoped. The overall size is so large that the individual pixels are noticeable. So, for any area of light background, a grid of tiny black dots is apparent and in all cases details are slightly ragged. For most work that will not be a problem. However, when working with Microsoft Word 2013 at maximum resolution and the Word default font of Calibri 11, text is certainly not as crisp as my older Dell laptop. Since much of my work involves text editing, that is a disappointment. I suspect this monitor will cause eye strain if used for long periods.

I was skeptical before purchasing this but found, upon purchasing and installing, that it is an excellent addition to my computer system. A very fine monitor.
