Cons

TN panel - cheap and fast at the expense of color quality and viewing angles

3 agree

Like almost all TN displays, it always has a yellow tint no matter how you adjust it.

2 agree

16:9 aspect ratio is poor for web browsing and office productivity (other than excel)

2 agree

glossy screen can be too glossy

1 agrees

somewhat expensive compared to other 23" models if the high resolution is not required

The Dell SP2309W is a 23" 16:9 full HD widescreen flat panel LCD monitor retailing at $379. It has a high 2048x1,152 pixel resolution, and an  integrated 2.0MP webcam. This piece won the CNET editor's choice for Feb 2009. It bundles a good set of connections: VGA, DVI, and HDMI.  It is highly praised for its intuitive, robust and uniquely designed on screen display. Compared with the $690 24 inch Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP, this piece comes slightly short on overall performance and connection options. And for $300, the Dell S2409W offers an inch more more screen size, but lower resolution, fewer ergonomic options, and slightly worse performance. Hence this piece hits a sweet spot. This machine scored well on CNET tests.
