Go all the way to the bottom and click "Tell us about a lower price"

May use PWM for the backlight, which leads to flicker.

bestjudge 04-05-2013 12:51 AM

No HDMI or Display port.

Ransom 04-05-2013 03:24 AM

Is this IPS?

ghabhaducha 04-05-2013 05:02 AM

Yes it is. Last time it made it to front page for $150. FP material.

This seems like a great price for a 23" IPS monitor. But the gloss level worries me. I am looking for a glossy screen, but the glass front on this monitor is report by many users to be particularly glossy. Glass is naturally very glossy and reflective. How is it working for you in terms of the gloss level? I am afraid it would be too glossy for me, especially because I don't work in a dark room.

By the way, my Dell work-issued notebook PC has just about the perfect gloss, not grainy/sparkly like some semi-gloss screens, but just enough semi-gloss to take the edge off reflections, while remaining clear. Why can't the monitor makers use this kind of gloss level - it is perfect. Instead we either get sparkly semi-gloss or full on reflective gloss such as this glass front monitor.

The 24" and 27" models are super glossy but this one is more of a regular glossy monitor.

Some monitor companies do use semi-gloss , check out the Asus PB278.

No hdmi no buy.

aiyaaabatt 04-05-2013 09:54 AM

I own this monitor and it is AMAZING.

The glossy screen really makes the colors "pop." Plus it doesn't have anti glare coating (obviously), which may be a negative for some, but for me (who uses it in an office with no windows) this is the best option. I can't stand the fuzzy effect that anti-glare coating produces (especially if not done well).

$139.99 for this is a great deal, for sure.

Namelessme 04-05-2013 10:18 AM

I don't own it, so can't comment directly, but at this price it is a good deal. If anyone is unsure how they will do with the glossy screen, you may be able to see it in your local Best Buy firsthand. Although it really depends on your lighting conditions.

As for why do manufacturers seem to either go with heavy grainy AG coating or super glossy ... no idea. There are some in between coatings, which recently has shown up with some IPS displays, but it always seemed odd to me. It also seems odd how we used CRTs with anti reflective coatings + glass, for like a decade, but manufacturers seemed to forget this. They instead go with blinding glossiness, and I have no idea why.

The hdmi version of this monitor is actually worse than the DVI version. For hdmi monitors you will have to use a graphics hack (Nvidia or Intel) to get proper black levels.

fueradeljuego 04-05-2013 11:12 AM

never mind...

Can this monitor be swiveled to portrait mode?

Anggg 04-05-2013 11:15 AM

In for two!

currently using a 19-20" widescreen XPS monitor, and a 32" 720 Dynex TV as my computer output.

I think it's time for an upgrade.

Do you have any pointer on what those graphics hacks are? I own hdmi version of the monitor and so far it looks good. I reduced default brightness to 45 and upped contrast to 75 and with that it looks really nice.

You can find info on it at tft central (for the 2440 model, but same applies for other S hdmi series too) --
http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/revie...s2440l.htm

Under their 'Default Performance and Setup' section.

Or just use the utility they recommend:
http://blog.metaclassofnil.com/?p=83

It's a driver issue, and occurs with Intel too, I believe. It should give you much better contrast and black levels.

elektrobank 04-05-2013 12:29 PM

This is an awesome monitor, at an amazing price. I have been through many dell monitors and this one so far is my favorite. The colors are dead on, and it's very bright. I have it next to a MacBook retina, which has the best display I've ever seen so far, and this one looks nearly as good except for the PPI of course.

I really like the glossy display a lot, the colors just look soo much better on it and it doesn't have that haze that a lot of the anti-glare ones do. It looks like a much higher end monitor because of it. I have it in a very bright room and I have no problems with reflections. At this price it's a no brainier. You can buy an HDMI to DVI cable off ebay for like $6, and a Vesa adapter for this for like $25 if you need either. I just bought this exact monitor from Best Buy a couple days ago, so I'll be sending that back and getting this deal.

HKP28 04-05-2013 12:55 PM

This is an AWESOME IPS monitor! $139.99 shipped is the lowest price I've seen for this. I'd totally jump on this deal if I didn't bought 2 already! I got one about 1.5 months ago from Best Buy for $159.99+tax and the 2nd one from Adorama Ebay for $164.99 shipped. The colors and contrast are pretty accurate out of the box. I don't see much difference after calibrated with Spyder3Pro. I love the thin bezel and glossy screen, it looks more expensive than the price paid.

ducky2802 04-05-2013 01:08 PM

Am I right in seeing no vesa or standard 3 prong power plug (meaning adapter required)?

It isn't VESA compatible without an adapter.

For the standard 3 prong power, it probably just means it doesn't come with the actual cable?

Yes, these are the (major) cons:
- no VESA mount
- uses an external AC adapter (like a laptop), but that's why it's so thin (adapter included)
- glossy

The third connector is meant for ground which is a good thing for safety purposes.

I don't have any direct light on my screen, and I still prefer matte. When the screen goes dark, I don't see myself or the contents of my room. It's just flat-out a much better experience...

But to each his own.

ctcsback 04-05-2013 08:27 PM

I see on the specs explicitly LED but not IPS. Is this for real IPS? Or just wanna be IPS with a good viewing angle?

benjie 04-05-2013 08:34 PM

I don't know why manufacturers continue to make monitors without vesa mounts. Great price, but no vesa=no sale.

nunpoom 04-05-2013 08:35 PM

Glossy... ewww.. yuck... last time I got glossy monitor, I thought a ghost live in my room touching the screen everyday.

i have the glossy monoprice 27" monitor. I dont know how they do it but it has absolutely no reflection at all. I'm in bright lit room with florescent lighting which normally doesnt play nice with glossy screens.

thebtran 04-05-2013 09:02 PM

is this better than u2312hm?

cyde121 04-05-2013 09:06 PM

I'm in the market for a new monitor on a tight budget $160 or less. I mostly use my office PC for photo editing and light gaming. Would this be a good choice? I'd like something with decent color rendition after being calibrated.

An external adapter is preferable for a monitor. If the power adapter fails (the most likely part to fail in a monitor), you can just buy a new adapter. Cheap fix.

If it's internal, you have to open the monitor and have that part replaced, which is going to be much more rare and that much more costly.

nicedart 04-05-2013 09:25 PM

nice thin bezel... must resist the urge to buy 3...

that's what i was thinking... and by the time you figure the cost to replace the internal PSU, might as well buy a new monitor :P

I guess this might be an issue on these lower end monitors. I've never had an LCD power supply fail (or any LCD monitor fail for that matter). My oldest LCD monitor is 7 years old (Samsung with an internal power supply) and still going strong. The next three screens I've purchased since then have been Dell Ultrasharps with internal power supplies which have also never failed. I most recently purchased one of those Korean 27" screens with an external power supply. So far so good.

I guess you haven't heard about the notorious capxon capacitor failures in Samsung tv s and monitors. Hundreds of thousands of units affected by this, read about it on badcaps.net

Your personal experiences match perfectly with mine. I've never had an LCD or TV fail... ever, and certainly never a power unit. But keep in mind that even the long-run failure rates for LCDs are so tiny. Even if the odds are 5% (which would be RIDICULOUSLY high for modern electronics), the chances of you owning one that fails is statistically quite low even if you own 4 monitors. We shouldn't extrapolate from personal experience too often.

In any case, it won't be a problem for 99% of users, but even if it doesn't fail, an external adapter is preferable to an internal one for other reasons (thinner, generates less heat inside the monitor). There's certainly no downside to an external adapter over an internal one, which is all I was responding to.

Also, while I don't personally own any monitors with external adapters, they used to be the norm on more expensive displays. When LCD's first came out (and were like $500 for a 15 inch... yikes), many of them used external adapters.

Krogan 04-05-2013 10:40 PM

Gotta ask... The bevel on this thing looks impressively thin, but when I look at videos on Youtube or really any other photo of this thing, the bevel looks much thicker.. Like half an inch thick compared to what looks more like 1/16" thick on Newegg's photos. What gives??

Look at the photo on Bestbuy's page : http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Dell+...&cp=1&lp=1

And even on Dell's: http://accessories.ap.dell.com/sn...dellSearch

And then look at those first three photos from Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6824260109

How does that happen??? I would love that monitor in the pics from Newegg, but I'm not convinced that's the S2340M.

Someone please advise!

anoobie 04-05-2013 11:07 PM

ChallengerV8 04-05-2013 11:16 PM

With coupons and all I got it down to $130 shipped. Is it worth returning that one and ordering this instead?

Also the things that jumps out at me between the two is the contrast ratio. on the HP its 10,000,000:1 and on the Dell its 1000:1 . Is this a big issue?

Sorry for the noob Q's:)

From what I understand the contrast ratio is not really an accurate measurement/determining factor on how great the screen is. Each company has their own way of testing or something like that. Here's a video from newegg explaining the specs of monitors and all that jazz.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?list...detailpage

Skip to 12:25 for the part about contrast ratios and what not. Hope this helps!

I've had one of each kind fail, an older box monitor, an LCD (Hannsg, the power button broke as did something internally) and an my 47" LG. The LG wasn't a power thing though, it was the motherboard or whatever it's called. Outside of the LG 3D TV, none of my newer monitors have had issues though. Then again, I have bad luck as I've had two ps3s fail as well.

Semi-tempted for this as my third monitor (using 22/19/17 currently) but probably will wait for something else to come along.

How far is the front tilt actually, it says 4 degrees, so it doesn't seem like much tilt at all?

Thanks for that! I was thinking 6 of these would array nicely if top 3 were inverted, but a half inch bezel is not exciting at all. Not to mention >$20/each for VESA adapters... still seems like a solid deal, but disappointing after getting all riled up.

Keep in mind though.

This monitor has only 1 year warranty compare to the U2412M which has 3 year warranty. It also lacks VESA mount unless you buy this adapter off of ebay [ebay.com].

Overall this monitor is very tempting.

There is a huge difference between cheap plastic glossy screens and glass screens.

Last I heard was that those monoprice LCDs were rebadge catleap/Yamakasi which has glass screens.

I have seen many monitors/tv's fail in the past. I used to work for an electronics recycler and we would get gaylord boxes full of monitors from many places that were bad. A lot of times we would test them and the capacitors were bad. We would replace those, clean them up and resell those.

I also do warranty repairs for Samsung, Sony, LG and TCL and there is a huge issue with capacitors failing. SO they get replaced and you are on your way.

But as said before it makes it a clunky solution to have an external power supply but if something does go wrong with that its a quick fix in just replacing the power supply.

I must have purchased one of the last ones. It'll be a nice upgrade from my old Samsung SyncMaster 941BW.

Looking at this review of the monitor though, at around the 10 minute mark, the screen appears like a mirror. Earlier in the review as well, after the guy unboxes the monitor and is moving it around, it looks like he is holding a mirror. That level of gloss concerns me. Would I be seeing reflections anytime the monitor shows dark images? Light images would not be a problem, but maybe dark would.

Showing out of stock for me still :/

Went to check it out as BestBuy just to see if it'd be too glossy for my taste (my monitor directly faces a sunny window). Glossier than I had hoped. Still wish I could see a U2312HM or 2412 in person before deciding.

Just to comment on that misleading image showing the super thin bezel on Newegg; there actually is a very thin outer bezel that's about 1/16" all around the glass, like Newegg shows, however there's also a half inch bezel all around the screen underneath the glass as well (not pictured on newegg).

Hope that helps.

You could've used the coupon code VALPAK10 to bring the price to $199.99

That doesn't answer my question at all, but thanks for the side tip! I appreciate that

But the thing is, I live in CA. I get taxed from Amazon/Newegg. 199 + 9% tax = ~ $218.00
I bought it from AdoramaCamera for 210.00 flat

I've made the same point on bargainez. Newegg is being very misleading by photoshopping these LCDs. Some people might not even realize why it was looking so much slicker on their site, and I think that's what Newegg is hoping for.

Huh? Newegg photos show a thicker bezel on the bottom, which there is. Their photos look accurate to me, I own this monitor.

That's very strange, because those first three photos on Newegg are the only pics of the S2349M on the internet that look like that! Look at the post above yours, that fella does a much better job than I did at explaining the difference than I did. If the monitor you have actually does look like the one in their photos then please let me know because I'm extremely interested in finding a few of that monitor! :P

Thanks for doing that! I wrote to Newegg about it but don't expect a response.

I see what you're saying now. It looks like they photoshopped those pictures onto the front of the monitor in each shot. Yeah the photoshopped picture is larger than the actual monitor screen, so it makes the bezel look thinner. I was looking at the images on a phone, so I guess I couldn't tell so well...:)

"The promo code EMCXSXR57 has expired and is no longer valid." is what I get when I add the promo code in the cart, even though the product description page clearly states "+ $30 off w/ promo code THYKLMG24, ends 4/11"

tizzao 04-09-2013 08:36 AM

If it was in stock, I'd try to order one.

I was able to order one today (1 unit came in stock for a few minutes) and the coupon code worked. The two codes you have quoted are different. Not sure if the error message contains a different code than what you entered or you just entered the wrong one.
