"An excellent product for the price"4.0 starson by TheyCallMeGeorge
Pros: Extremely sharp, very bright display, stylish design, no ghosting whatsoever
Cons: Dead pixels, somewhat wobbly, limited adjustability for DVI, display rotation isn't automatic
Summary: I just ordered this from Dell last Friday night, it got to my house on the Tuesday after with the standard 3-5 day shipping. That alone made me very happy. I must say that I'm quite impressed with this monitor. It's the first LCD that I have owned, so I wasn't exactly sure what to expect.
My previous experience with other people's flat panels have included blurry images, heavy ghosting, and limited adjustments with the stand. This has none of those. The specs say it's a 8 ms grey-to-grey response time, and I gotta say it's every bit as fast as my old CRT. I haven't had any ghosting problems with gameplaying or movie watching yet. The monitor is EXTREMELY bright, I had to turn the brightness way down and also turn the gamma way up for all of my games. Very nice. I also like the adjustability of the monitor, it has a great side-to-side adjustment, as well as a very nice height adjustment. I can finally look at my monitor at eye-level instead of staring down at it!
I am somewhat disappointed with the display rotation feature, I was under the impression that most monitors with display rotation would automatically rotate the display in Windows as well. The instructions for this monitor says to manually go into your video card settings and rotate the screen, making the process very tedious for those who may wish to use this feature often. I won't be using it much (if at all), so it's not a big deal for me. I also have a few dead pixels (2 clusters of two, and another lone one, Dell's replacement policy is 6 or more), but they're all within an inch of the outside of the screen, so it's not a huge deal. Still a bit annoying. The menu interface is also a bit of a hassle, essentially with only 3 buttons to navigate the menu. It would be nice to have a few more adjustments enabled for DVI input, but it's nothing that I can't fix in my video card settings.
Okay, all in all, definitely a great monitor for the price (buy a $35 off coupon on eBay for $2 for an even better price). For a college student who is a moderate gamer and movie watcher, I must say that I'm extremely happy with this purchase.
