Amazing monitor for an Amazing price point ; The viewing angles are amazing ; I am going to buy two more and eyefinity when the 8000 series video cards release ; I plan on using portrait mode for three monitors so that is why I got this monitor with...

I'm impressed


I did a lot of research on IPS panel LCD's and this was by far one of the best, for the price and size. It took me 90 days to decide on this monitor and I'm glad I waited. I can't find any issues in reviews I've read here or or else where that mention...

I enjoy the USB hub built in but so many Dell Models have a 2.0 Hub built in. I'm surprised this didn't have a 3.0 hub. Also with Display Port 1.2 out these days, why this did not have Daisy Chain built in is sad. Only the Dell 29" version has Daisy...

Good Value


A great monitor for the price, the reflection complaint is the only thing keeping it from 5 eggs. I have been using it as part of a low cost color grading suite, and I have run into a bit of issues with calibration but I think those are on the end of...

Low price and high performance. The stand is also amazingly good

As another reviewer has noted, the inside casing next to the screen has a glossy reflective finish. The rest of the monitor's casing is a textured surface that does not reflect, but the one part that is next to the screen that would have a chance of...

I ordered from Newegg and returned this monitor a few days later, not sure whether I can find a reasonably priced upgrade for my Samsung. Manufacturers don't care much about the PC market these days so finding good quality displays can be quite...

LED backlight turns on quickly, stand is well made and highly adjustable

My current monitor is a 4-5 year old Samsung TN panel, nothing special. The product description and reviews (both on Newegg and from other sources) had me convinced this would be a considerable upgrade over my Samsung. Once setup and adjusted, I...

Beautiful Monitors


These monitors have excellent color and can be easily viewed from all angles. I have 3 of these set-up on a single MSI 680GTX 4GB running in portrait mode and these things are stunning. 3240x1920 resolutiion. Also, the built in USB hub is nice, but...

The Grain Is Very Noticeable


This is a great monitor with great color and great features, but it has been ruined by the 3H Anti-Glare coating.

Colors do not shift when you move your head around. The color also stays the same across the entire surface of the screen. On my old TN panel, a solid color always looks like a gradient running from top to bottom. Not so with this monitor. This is the...

The grain! The 3H Anti-Glare coating used on this and other IPS panels is a bit too strong, and cause a grain-like effect. It can also be described as noise or sparkle. It's like looking at a photo taken at 3200 ISO, but a TN panel looks like a clean...

More people should invest in IPS Displays.

Way better for Photoshop than my last monitor. Has a cool swivel mount and USB hub comes in handy. The blacks on this screen really really amazed me. Better purchase than I thought it was going to be. I also had a problem with the viewing angle on my...

Looks sharp, sturdy build.


Well built, sturdy. Base, swivel and height roller are all solid. Nice plastic wont scratch like all the glossy black gaming monitors ; Very reasonable price for IPS ; DVI/HDMI Inputs ; Great looking color out of the box ; Skyrim looks amazing ; Nice...

Not much ..... it came with 1 dead pixel in the upper right portion of the display. Kept it as is, no big deal ; Does not include HDMI cord. Didn't apply to me. Most monitors don't come with it

Dell U2212HM


I previously bought a top rated brand from Newegg that was a TN Film Panel. The out of box performance was not good. I endlessly played with color settings but could not get it right. The contrast ratio was terrible gamma was way off, and dark screens...
