"Avoid Dell's UltraSharp Monitors"1.5 starson by bluedevil_99
Pros: Terrific resolution, lots of ports, attractive, ergonomic
Cons: Screen coating leads to distortion of images and odd visual effects, making monitor unsuitable for work
Summary: This is a terrific monitor for gaming and HD movies, but I found it completely unsuitable for my office. As one of the other reviews states, the anti-glare coating on this monitor makes reading plain text extremely difficult. The monitor looks great when displaying video or high-res, colorful images but I quickly developed headaches when trying to use email and word processing. This is unacceptable: as a PC monitor, this unit needs to be suitable for work, not just HD movies or gaming. My current pair of Dell 2407WFPHC monitors are "only" 1920x1200 but at least I can use them for everyday work.
