5.0 out of 5 stars Looks pretty good & works well, ideal for connecting to a Mac, 15 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dell UltraSharp U2414H 23.8 inch Widescreen IPS LCD Monitor (1920 x 1080, 2M:1, 250 cd/m2, 8 ms, HDMI/DP/mini DP/USB) (Accessory)
I originally ordered the Samsung S24D590PLX as a display for my Macbook Pro but it was out of stock at Amazon, so I got this instead. I'm glad I did, I'd recommend it for the following reasons:

1. It has Display Port & Mini Display Port inputs (plus 2 HDMI inputs) whereas most monitors only have HDMI. So no need to buy a special cable or converter if you have a Mac. Dell even includes a Mac friendly cable in the box.

2. It's height adjustable, I couldn't find any other monitors at this price point with this feature.

3. Image quality is excellent, and it has an IPS panel which is better than the TN panels on cheaper monitors, and offers a wide viewing angle.

4. The design isn't bad, with a very thin bezel and a brushed silver stand that matches the Mac (not as beautiful as a Thunderbolt display, of course).

5. There's a separate USB charging socket to plug your phone or tablet into at the back of the unit.

Note that you can't register the monitor online with Dell without a service tag; I couldn't find one on the monitor.

All in all, highly recommended.

Thanks for the helpful review. Can you connect a MacBook Pro and a PS3 to this monitor at the same time or do you need to disconnect the MacBook and only connect one at a time? Thanks!

You should be fine to connect both. The MBP would go into the Display Port and the PS3 into the HDMI port. I haven't tried this configuration myself, though.

I'd like to buy this display and I'm wondering if I'll connect it to my Mac (Thunderbolt on computer and MiniDisplay on the thing), would display work as a USB hub without plugging actual USB cable from computer. Wanna keep both USB ports on Mac free and don't run too much cables.
Could you check that? Thank you.

I very much doubt that the Thunderbolt cable can also do the work of the USB cable. Two different sets of signals. However, I don't have a Thunderbolt port on my Mac so I can't test this.

I recommend Apple support forums for a definitive answer.
