"Lots of real estate"4.5 starson by ksalerno
Pros: crisp text, option of portrait positioning for business use, loads of viewable space at it's resident 1600 x 1200 setting, substantial base, 4 usb ports in the monitor, outstanding value for the price
Cons: lame cord management loop in the back, front control buttons poorly marked
Summary: I waited a long time to get an LCD monitor and was apprehensive since I always thought CRTs were far superior. Also heard about a "screen door effect" this monitor supposedly produces. The minute I turned it on I was blown away by the clarity, crisp images and type and brightness. After much research I believe for the price it's the best monitor you can buy, especially if you wait for a promotion at Dell.
