Pros 2560 resolution is awesome.
Cons You have to connect with DVI-D (Dual link DVI) for full resolution... that's the only way to get full resolution.... only way. Hearing me? can't do it with HDMI or VGA. So, if you're like me and bought it to connect to a laptop, you are screwed.
Summary love it, wish i could connect it at full resolution to my laptop, but I don't know of any laptops with DVI-D out :(
Pros Very adjustable (*height*, swivel, etc).
High res allows more windows at reasonable readability side by side than before.
USB ports convenient.
Many connectors (& great placement).
Sleep takes little power.
Menus & buttons easy to use
Cons Requires a lot of power - Brightness 24/100, Watts Up meter: 70-74W.
A bit slow to sync to new signal - a few secs to more than that on boot/power up (BIOS screens nearly finish before monitor is rdy).
Expensive (not a terrible sin for this quality).
Summary The official CNET review is right on. Some users might find the dot pitch a little small, making text a little small; I changed the dpi setting in Windows XP to 110 to match the monitor as measured with a ruler, and moved the monitor closer to me on my desk (21 inches from my nose), which helped.
Pros Great color - Great text at 2560 resolution.
Cons AntiGlare coating looks like PERMANENTLY ATTACHED DUST.
Summary The Story:
Wow Wow --- Look at the colors - look at the text at 2560 resolution - PERFECT.
Look at the movie - Wow.
Then my wife tells me - How can you do any work with such a dusty screen. She opened up one of our specialty wipes just for cleaning monitor screen.
But - *** - the dust wouln't come off !!! Then I realized it was the Dell's AntiGlare coating causing the dust problem. PERMANENTLY ATTACHED DUST.
That's how I can desribe it. I am so sad to see a perfect monitor ruined by dust.
My desktop system - Optiplex GX620 - ATI 5450 Graphics (Sapphire).
Screen needed for music production.
Had to return it back to Dell - Sincerely MusicNotes4u.
Pros It just doesn't get any better than this. I do a lot of general work, but am also an avid amateur photographer. Also, the monitor has a non-reflective screen. This monitor is what you need for serious photo editing work.
Cons What's not to like? Okay, it's design (appearance) is nothing to brag about. But, it gets the job done.
