Pros USB Hub, Web cam, many connection options
Cons no included speakers.
Pros Base is very sturdy, has an array of ways to connect the monitor, additional 2 USB ports on the side.
I use this at my desk and just plug my laptop into it and put my laptop in my desk.
Easy to use and change configurations, great quality picture.
Cons The factory settings for the color, contract, brightness ect are not the best choices. Once out of the box you may not be as impressed but change the configurations a bit and the quality is excellent.
Summary I'm a college student and have had the monitor for over 3 years now without a single problem. Is obviously a good seller and quality product otherwise it would not still be made after a few years. For the price, versatility and quality you can't beat it when compared to other monitors of similar specifications.
Pros Nice solid images, good but not great colours. Very nice design for its age. HDMI input. Rare Glossy screen. USB hub and integrated web cam. Have been using for a year now with no issues, very reliable and solid unit.
Cons Poor text for thin fonts on some backgrounds. Colours shift dramatically with the viewing angle, especially vertically. Would not recommend for graphic artists, but if you like glossy screens & want an easy on the eyes screen then this is for you.
Summary Text for the most part is nice and solid (I personally hate pixelated or faint text). However as many of the other reviewers have pointed out that on some backgrounds (especially grey I found) the text if using a thin Windows XP font such as Arial can be kind of blurry. It's not so bad that you can't read it, it's just a bit distracting more than anything. Dell really need to fix this issue. I am pretty fussy when it comes to LCD's (particularly readability) so if you're the same then I can recommend this LCD.
However if you're a gamer or into any kind of graphical design then I would recommend LG's new 23" LCD the 2353 with HDMI input, it's a knockout!
My suggestion to Dell for this monitor is to include height adjustment, I paid nearly $500 for this LCD last year in 2008 and no height adjustment? That's crazy.
Anyway hope you find the LCD you are after and hope this helps. :)
Pros Constrution ,connections,screen color once adjusted.
Cons Bad default colors ,limited stand adjustments and no customer support.
Summary If you don't mind spending countless hours adjusting this thing it will give a great image. Calling Dell for help is a waste of time ,worthless!!!!!! Cnet got this review wrong.Thanks
Pros Big, bright, evenly lit, relatively inexpensive, webcam, HDMI, DVI, VGA, USB all included.
Cons Viewing angles are just terrible; OK for movies and games, but forget about anything involving text! Text is annoyingly unsharp and JPGs show obvious compression artefacts which makes it nearly useless for 95% of applications. Avoid!!!
Summary There's no such thing as free lunch. It's cheap for a 22" screen but image quality obviously suffers as a result of using a cheap TN panel. Go for 20" PVA or IPS. It'll be sharper due to smaller pixels and image quality will be much better. 1680 x 1050 is actually more appropriate for 20" than 22" anyway. Remember that this is SP2208WFP and is a different screen from the Ultrasharp 2208WFP! Don't make the same mistake I made, by thinking they were just two names for the same thing!
