I am using the extra monitor for my dual screen setup. My only issue with the monitor is that the color and quality aren't great sitting right next to a monitor that is connected with DVI and the other is VGA. When I get a graphics card that has two DVI Ports then there will be no difference. Dell makes great products.
I loved the screen cause it's sharp and just the right size. before i had a 17" monitor that wasn't flat screen and it took up a lot of space. and with this cheap price i can't explain how happy i am with the product.
Between work and home I now own five Dell monitors and have not had any issues with them. They are stylish and function flawlessly. I will continue to buy Dell's monitors.
This is one of the best monitor ever, I give it an A plus. First of all, unlike other monitor the screen contour is very thin. Most manufacturers add a lot of plastic to the contour to make the monitor looks big. Even without the extra plastic around the screen, this monitor still looks big -- May look small to some, but it is actually a 17 inch. What I live the most is how one is able to move it around. The monitor has the best monitor stand that allows you to move the screen way up, down -- whereever as you like. You will not regret buying this monitor as long as it is in very good condition, you will enjoy it!
We needed some monitors to replace some that burned out, but didn't want to go ultra-fancy. These monitors fit that bill perfectly. They are small enough to fit in most places, but still provide a bright, crisp image.
The monitor is the size I just need and is working in excellent conditions. I decided to buy it because of price and it looks like new. It came with the cables so I didn't need to buy them. I was going to use for the office but instead I'm using it at home at my laptop station.
This Dell 17" monitor is just what I needed to give me more room in my desk.
The price was very good and the performance is great.
I did step down in screen size from 19" but it runs much cooler than a tube.
