I have used this monitor for some time now and it has been great. I like the fact that I can change the screen from being horizontal to vertical and the picture quality is great. The fact that I can run a USB cable from the monitor to my machine making it to where I can plug USB devices into the monitor rather than having to reach down to the PC itself is a great time saving feature that I love. When I purchased this monitor I purchased the warranty service with it and it proved to come in handy. I had a few pixels go out on the monitor, not a reflection of the monitor itself I believe just a bad unit, and I contacted dell support about it they were fast and efficent in sending out a replacement for the unit. they didnt give me a hasle to replace it either which I was surprised about because I was preparing myself for a battle when I contacted them. the replacement that they sent me is working great and I have had no issues with it thus far.
