Button

Button:
"Hate the buttons as these are sensors which does not respond very well to touch."
_
"Not a huge fan of the on off and other buttons on the monitor as they are hard to identify via feel and are not readily seen in lower light environments."
_
"One small complaint is about the touch buttons."
_
"The touch buttons are a little bit weird... No feedback when using them, to let you feel that you've pushed a button.5."
_
"As others have reported, the touch screen buttons are terrible."
_
"The capacitive buttons were frustrating for me to use at first but I found out that if I use my thumb like I'm doing a thumbprint, the buttons work ~90% of the time first try versus ~25% when poking at them with the tip of a finger."
_
"Customizable front touch button is a nice feature."
_
"They look sleek, but I would prefer real buttons for better feedback and more consistent registering of presses."
_
"I use another Dell monitor at work and the touch buttons on it work perfectly 100% of the time."
_
"The software allows me to use the mouse to make adjustments, which is much easier than using the monitor's buttons."
_
"Touch Buttons:Easy to use, futuristic, and techie."

Cable

Cable:
"You can unplug the displayport cables and plug them back in but the problem will remain."
_
"The screen quality is very good, had one problem though with connecting the monitor using an HMDI cable on Nvidia gtx 780ti card, the card couldn't detect the screen as a PC monitor, in fact it detected it as an HDTV, which resulted in having washed out colors on the screen because of the fact that when the screen is detected as an HDTV the graphic card is only providing it with Limited RGB colors, I solved the problem by using the display port cable instead to connect the screen."
_
"I have used HDMI cables (not included) to work around most of these problems, but still am unable to daisy-chain."
_
"Very nice, easy to connect with HDMI cable, color is great and details are well defined."
_
"It is very easy to assemble and seamlessly hooked up to my Mac-book Air with the cord that was included."
_
"Great monitor with thin bezels and it comes with cables"
_
"Works perfectly as a second monitor with my iMac - you just have to plug the cable into the correct input."
_
"Amazing quality build and performance :)Cables that come with the box are a bit short."

Color

Color:
"I was a bit disappointed at how the colors look on this monitor compared to my old panel - even after some adjusting they still don't compare."
_
"Other problems include color inconsistancy between multiple monitors - Dual revision A03 manufactured on the same date, yet one had a yellow tone and the other a grayish tone."
_
"The screen quality is very good, had one problem though with connecting the monitor using an HMDI cable on Nvidia gtx 780ti card, the card couldn't detect the screen as a PC monitor, in fact it detected it as an HDTV, which resulted in having washed out colors on the screen because of the fact that when the screen is detected as an HDTV the graphic card is only providing it with Limited RGB colors, I solved the problem by using the display port cable instead to connect the screen."
_
"I use my computer almost exclusively as a gaming rig, so when I decided I had enough with the poor color reproduction and terrible viewing angles of a TN panel and started looking for an IPS display, I first narrowed them down by response time."
_
"Using the verification function in dispcalgui showed colors with errors less than 2 across the board and 99% sRGB coverage."
_
"The dreaded nvidia color problems - I decided after reading reviews about this monitor and display port issues that I would stick to HDMI connections."
_
"Awesome Full HD definition, the color balance it's just perfect and the overall product construction it's both beautiful and functional."
_
"But the most important reason we bought it is because some reviews said that this monitor was suited for photo edition because of its color accuracy."
_
"Its color accuracy is awesome."
_
"Great picture, nice true colors, like the small frame and adjustability of the stand."
_
"And the screen, good picture, good color."

_
"Paper mode I found is good for doing my college work on and things that require a lot of reading or writing and office productivity, reducing blue light levels, though with the hdmi connection it's not as good (not the monitor's fault)."
_
"Ultra nice monitor, though after running the CD and installing drivers it's having problem detecting my displayport connection which is weird, I dont know if its my wonky AMD videocards, the cable, or the monitor but I am ordering a mini to mini display port cable and hopefully that fixes the issue."
_
"Caution: Do not rotate while everything is connected, wire tension could disrupt damage the ports."
_
"Few things to consider before buying the 4 USB ports are placed along with the display connections, making it hard to reach."
_
"I have been trying to get these to work for days on my brand new Dell computer (which has Display Port connections as well) and they still do not work properly."
_
"I will say when the HDMI is connected, the screen looks beautiful."
_
"In conclusion, I would say if you only intend to use hdmi connections for this monitor then they are pretty nice."
_
"Bezel is really minimized with up-to-dated technology available, which makes tri-monitor configuration possible and look better regarding seamless connection."
_
"Now I'm attempting to upgrade a Dell monitor to my Dell XPS8500 desktop (so it should provide friendly connections and easy setup)."

Display

Display:
"And now may I say that I found the OSD (On Screen Display very confusing to operate (navigate), and the User Guid was pretty useless in that regard."
_
"Worst was the Display Port bug."
_
"The main issue with this monitor is is regards to it's display problems."
_
"Set up monitor with Macbook Pro:There are two display ports about dead center on the back of the monitor."
_
"Your display won't be looking too good yet, but click on the Displays icon in the menu bar at the top of your screen and select 1080p (p not i - 1080i is blurry)."
_
"Many reviews for this exact model will show you exactly how little input lag this display has, and I think this is a nice middle ground between the lightning fast GAMER type monitors and the nicer IPS panel displays."
_
"To be on the fair side, I am an older gamer and don't feel compelled to buy a 120hz GSYNC compatible display or anything like that."
_
"I have been trying to get these to work for days on my brand new Dell computer (which has Display Port connections as well) and they still do not work properly."

_
"My first trial plug in did not work so I had to talk to Dell and they confused me with message that I would not be able to use hdmi."
_
"This monitor is best suited for a single display via HDMI as displayport is utterly broken."
_
"As expected, daisy chaining the display port interface with my Nvidia card didn't go so well, so I ended up using 1 HDMI and 1 display port cable, in place of just displayport cables."
_
"Paper mode I found is good for doing my college work on and things that require a lot of reading or writing and office productivity, reducing blue light levels, though with the hdmi connection it's not as good (not the monitor's fault)."

Pixels

Pixels:
"However, I was disappointed to find that I have a dead (not stuck) pixel."

Setup

Setup:
"I couldn't find clear concise details in whether it would work in my setup or not..."
_
"******In short, if your video card only has DP outputs (or you planned on only using DP), but you want a dual monitor setup, be prepared for the most annoying issue possible with such a setup--and again, this will occur regardless of what brand of monitor you buy."
_
"I used the DP chained setup and the monitor would constantly blank out periodically as well as slow to turn on from sleep."
_
"They're light, have an extremely slim bezel, were easy to setup, and just look gorgeous."
_
"Now I'm attempting to upgrade a Dell monitor to my Dell XPS8500 desktop (so it should provide friendly connections and easy setup)."
_
"- Super-small bezels are perfect for multi-monitor setups- Viewing angles are impressive- Great connectivityThe main hesitation I had when buying this was not having ever experienced the panel's quality before."
_
"However, these units seem to be a great choice for 3x1 monitor setups, and you should be mindful of it if you plan to use these with an NVIDIA card."

"This model of monitor has been purchased before and is a good choice for a small office."
_
"The small bezel makes for a very pleasant monitor to look at and in a weird way focuses the picture on the content."
_
"By making small adustments to the custom color mode, I was able to dail the display in to 6500K fairly easily with a default gamma of 2.1."
