"Good for word processing, BAD for Photoshop, etc."0.5 starson by olliemycat
Pros: Very sharp.
Cons: Banding issues in dark grays, greens, browns, etc.
Summary: Try before you buy! Definitely, don't use with a Macintosh until you check for banding. Sorry, Dell, you should have done your full testing before sending this monitor out the door.This monitor has highly noticeable banding issues. I received four (4, 1 original, 3 replacements) and all had the same problem. Go to Dell's forum for further info:
