Excellent value for a general use monitor
on September 19, 2012
Pros: Full HD 1920x1080 resolution shows great detail, text and images are crisp and clear, anti-glare coating is very effective and reduces eye strain, fast 2ms grey-to-grey response eliminates ghost images in fast moving images, DVI to HMDI adapter is included with package, slim and attractive appearance, LED-lit design uses less energy and lasts longer than other LCD back lights, low power design runs very cool compared to 26" LCD on my workstation.
Cons: The included DVI to HMDI adapter sticks out too far and does not face downward which causes extra gap when placing this up against a wall or panel, no VESA connections for alternate mounting on wall/monitor stand, the anti-glare coating saps a bit of color "pop" from images, the stand is somewhat wobbly and has no height adjustment
Conclusion: This unit is an excellent value in a general use monitor for my child to do school work, surf the web, create digital art and play an occasional game. It simply would not work for anyone who wants to use a wall or stand mount. Photo editors wanting truer colors on a budget should consider the excellent value of a Dell U2412m e-IPS display instead. Yes, I would recommend this monitor to a friend and/or buy it again. No, I do NOT work for or receive compensation from Dell in any way. If this information was helpful, please click "Yes" below.
