5.0 out of 5 stars Very Pleased, 5 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dell Ultrasharp U2312HM 23 inch IPS LED Monitor (Personal Computers)
I bought this monitor as an upgrade to my Dell 17" screen, which was absolutely fine if it weren't for the limited screen realty available. Writing a project requires a lot of different windows open, so I needed a product that would provide increases screen size without hampering the resolution or blurring text.This Dell monitor perfectly fits this criterion. The image is as sharp as my 17" screen and runs a 1920 x 1080 resolution compared to the 1280 x 1024. HD video and images are crisp, and being widescreen, fills the screen without letterboxing.

The monitor comes packed with DVI-D and dual-VGA cables (unfortunately I run a 2010 Macbook that requires a Minidisplayport input). The VGA input is sometimes glitchy, with lines flickering on the screen, but this may be a reflection of my cable and not the monitor itself. A USB A-B female adapter cable is provided - this plugs straight into the USB port and allows the monitor to act as a hub. Two of the USB ports are found at the back, along with input cables - this is excellent to hide cluttering cables, such as a printer. A minor issue is the other two USB inputs are found on the left side of the screen - these are easily accessed but are on the wrong side for me to plug in a wireless mouse charger cable.

Unboxing, installation and set-up was exceptionally easy and took 15 minutes. Windows will have to install drivers with the supplied CD to optimise the resolution - Macs, apparently, can simply go to System Preferences to change the resolution to the desired size without need to install anything.

I cannot comment on the longevity of the product, as this review is written a day after installing.
In summary, I highly recommend this product and am willing to take any comments or queries about anything I may have missed.

I'm afraid I don't know where to find the revision number for the product. Would you mind elaborating?

it's on the back side of the monitor. It should be something like Rev A0x. The latest revision number is A06.

Apologies for the delay - revision number is A06.
