After purchasing a Dell ultrasharp monitor for home, it feels weird when I go into work and have to work on my (boring) normal monitor. The Dell is vibrant, powerful, and precise. Superb choice for a monitor for gaming and for using and browsing the internet, and watching movies. The minimum you can really use now for watching TV and movies on a computer is 19" and this really starts to fit the bill.
With its DVI and VGA Inputs you can plug it in to almost anything (short of a HDMI port its everything). With DVI you get the full experience of HD Video in all its glory, and with a wide variety of HD content on the web now, its a must.
The on screen display is good with easy navigation straight into the options, and good choice of options, with an auto setup for the novice. I didn't have to change any settings from the out-the-box setup for it to be fine for me. If anything you could turn the vibrancy of the colour down, but it's worth keeping it and you do get used to it.
The only thing that would tear me away from this monitor is when the prices of 22" and 23" monitors come down to more afforable prices. I wouldn't go back to a standard monitor now after having an ultrasharp one!
