Great price for a monitor of this quality - could have done with 8 billion to 1 contrast ratio though
For a less than 22 inch monitor, Dell or not - it's expensive.
VERY expensive.
You can pick up an excellent 24 incher off CCL: hdmi/dvi/vga for less than £115
Blows this deal away.

Good deal, but I find the anti-glare very difficult to live with - make sure you have a look at a monitor with an AG coating before buying this monitor or any of the others in this range.

with an IPS screen ?
I still think it's a good deal considering the spec - IPS screen, displayport/hdmi/dvi and the fact you can use it vertically/portrait when required.

In relation to the price of the 30" ultrasharps I have on my desk , this is budget money for Pro monitors

Yeah, a TN panel probably. Not in the same league as this.

I don't understand the fascination with 24 inch monitors - the 16:9 ones are all 1920*1080 just the same as the 22 inch ones are. All that happens is the image is blown up in size by 2 inches. There's no advantage whatsoever.

Of course there is as you can see the same amount of detail from further away or more detail from the same distance. For people with less than 20/20 vision that can make a big difference. I have a 23” screen in the study which I use to watch videos at times and I wouldn’t want to use a smaller screen although 27” is too big for the desk.
Sitting further away or bad vision I agree. But sitting with your head at about 2 foot away (an approximate average) from the screen will NOT enable you to see more detail with 23.5 inch vs 21.5 with both screens at 1080p. It's a case of 93 ppi VS 102 ppi - your eyes will fully resolve both of these at 2 feet.

For comparison the "retina" ipad 3 has a 260 ppi screen and is expected to be used about 1.5 foot away. This is miles higher than even 102 ppi, never mind 93.
