To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this monitor as I now have been working from home since Covid and may continue to do so for longer. I needed a set up largely for video meetings as I work remotely. I explored a lot of wireless monitors but couldn't find one. I wanted to buy Dell as we had it in our office and I believed in it being a good brand. I connected to the Dell sales representatives on the chat to propose what the best option could be for my need, but they were not of any help. They suggested the top end monitors. Then i chanced upon this on amazon with specific use for video conferencing. This seemed like an obvious choice. I would say that it has solved 50% of what I was looking for. I do not have to wear a headphone now for my video calls. The speaker is pretty ok. But the camera is below expectation. The low resolution of the camera doesn't really project a great image of you if you were going to be only represented through the picture streaming through this camera. Especially when everyone else's image on video calls is absolutely clear. As I do all my work on Teams meetings with screen being shared for any presentation or discussion, I feel I could have brought a 27" screen as sometimes numbers on excel or smaller text on presentation is difficult to read. I definitely go on video a lot more than before. It is definitely better than working off the laptop doing some good to my eyes and posture, but could have been better for the money spent. Disappointed that Dell monitor for video conferencing couldn't have a camera as good as the Dell laptop at least. No issues with Amazon delivery.
I was wary about buying a DELL product because I just don't like the brand but I wanted a bigger monitor with a built in webcam and I needed it quickly so I purchased this monitor on April 3, 2020 and received April 4, 2020. Today is September 22,2020 and the monitor is completely DEAD! I used it the previous evening for a zoom meeting, today I went to use it and it wouldn't respond. I tried unplugging and reconnecting it only to determine there is actually no power at all no matter where I plugged it in. Thankfully I kept my old monitor in the box that this Dell monitor came in. I connected my old monitor to my computer and it works fine. I've since ordered a stand alone webcam which is what I should have done in the first place. I should have trusted my instincts and not purchased a DELL. Their products are garbage. Kudos to AMAZON for making the return of this monitor very easy.
I purchased this for my mother in early February 2020 as an upgrade to her old 17" monitor. I chose this one specifically because of the center mount camera. Wow, I am sure glad I did. After all the COVID-19 quarantine/stay at home orders issued the following month, it sure was great for her to be able to teleconference with the rest of the family and not have to be beholden to her smartphone.
Is this good for gaming? Heck if we know. 75 y/o mom isn't a gamer. But she does like to read and watch online videos and the color and text size supported by this monitor work exactly as expected.
I bought this product because the placement of the camera on my new Dell laptop was unexpectedly horrible, causing a condition called “nosecam”. With this monitor all the features (audio and video) I need for connecting on Skype, Zoom, etc. are on the monitor and working well. Good size for large desktop. Good price.
