An excellent Monitor for the price,
This review is from: Dell UltraSharp U2414H 23.8" LED LCD Monitor (Electronics)
I was replacing an older HP touchscreen monitor with this one, after deciding that I needed something with better color accuracy and an IPS display. I must say, I'm loving this purchase. I bought it directly from Dell when they were having a special that combined it with a tablet for free. The monitor's bezel is amazingly thin--less than 1cm, and it pretty much melts away into the darkness if you use it in low light settings. Color reproductions is a lot better than my old monitor, and it's a very bright display. The touchscreen capacitive buttons are simple yet modern, and the HUD is pretty simple to navigate--but it's a little unresponsive at times, not a major issue by any standards. Text and photos render very crisply, and the expanded screen real estate that I have compared to my old HP is a very welcome change. This monitor is VESA mount compatible, but the stand included has pivot, swivel, and rotates up to 90 degrees--very versatile for my situation. I can now fit this in the corner of my desk and still look at it dead-on. It has a plethora of USB ports, USB 3.0 not just 2.0, as well as 2 HDMI ports, 2 Displayports, and 1 MiniDisplayport (if you have a compatible tablet). In the box came a displayport cable, power adapter, and a USB Type B Male to USB Type C male cable 3.0 (excellent for hiding wires from keyboards or wireless dongles) The viewing angles, as expected with any IPS display, are amazing, with very minute distortion. The anti-glare coating on top of it isn't very harsh at all, and colors are produced sufficiently accurately--grays actually look gray, and blacks do as well. It's no glossy monitor, but for most gamers and photographers (like myself) it's a perfect solution. Overall, it's been a great purchase.
