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 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.
When our daughter had to return home from college and take classes online we realized that it would be nice for her to have a monitor larger than her lap top. This was a great purchase. With the addition of an adapter cord between the monitor and her laptop, this worked perfectly. The image is good quality and made Zooming easy from her desk.
Quite disappointed with the quality of the webcam. The picture appears really dark. Tried to change drivers (user Dell drivers) but that did not help. Also strange that they do not send an HDMI cable given that the monitor has a HDMI input.
