Glossy monitor frame reflects picture

Dell's S2409W is a 24-inch LCD, full HD flat screen monitor. It hosts a 1920x1080-pixel (full HD/1080p) resolution and is primarily intended for use as a computer monitor (although it also hosts the ability to perform as a general HD media display screen). The S2409W features VGA, DVI and HDMI inputs and supports DHCP for the ability to play security protected content (which is common on many Blueray discs). The Dell S2409W has a fast response time of 5ms, a 1000:1 contrast ratio and sharp resolution through 0.276mm dot pitch.

Features
  • 24-inch LCD flat screen
  • Full HD/1080p resolution (1920x1080-pixel)
  • VGA, DVI and HDMI inputs
  • DHCP support
  • 5ms response time
  • 1000:1 contrast ratio
  • 0.276mm dot pitch
  • Extremely easy to navigate menu
  • Input changing with 1 button (for example: Switch between your PC desktop, an xbox 360, and a PS3 without going into the menu)

According to the http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/panelsearch.htm :

  • Model: Dell S2409W
  • Response Time: 5ms
  • Panel: 24"WS AU Optronics TN Film (M240HW01 V0)

So if we search for the panel mode we will find BenQ equivalent - BenQ M2400HD but notice that BenQ model got builtin speakers and usb connectors and some camera.

Very poor quality. Has a graph paper pattern in the background. Could not return for refund because I called for return instructions 6 days late. I will never purchase another Dell product.

I've had monitors ranging from a 15 inch CRT to a 26 inch Asus and nothing has EVER compared to this monitor, which is in the same price range as monitors inches smaller with half the price. I've had this for months and have never had a single problem, and have a guarantee that if anything goes wrong or even one pixel is damaged I will receive a new monitor.

I've used this with my bluray player, desktop, xbox 360, and I am going to purchase a second one to use as a smaller widescreen TV with the HDMI!!!
