Even with the lights in the studio it only showed minimal glare. The flip side of the matte screen is that it can look low contrast under some circumstances. The ultrathin bezel is a mixed blessing: It looks nice, but the panel-to-chassis connection seems so fragile.
The display snaps into the mounting place, and you release it by pressing the button. The connector section is really well designed. Many monitors have a deep recess where it's impossible to maneuver, but the indent makes it easy to feel your way around. Even better, when it's on the arm you can position it so that you can actually see the connectors. Or you can rotate it vertically to get to them more easily.
From left to right: HDMI, DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort,DisplayPort output, audio out, USB hub input, two USB 3.0 connectors.
One of which supports full-time device charging.
Navigating the onscreen display is simple and clear. The buttons are a little small, though -- you can see them on the bottom of the display below the navigation aid.
You attach the arm mount to a desk or table with a screw clamp. It's a really nice solution if you need to move the monitor around a lot. The drawback with it is you need a decent amount of depth; for instance, I couldn't attach it to the front or back of this desk because there isn't enough of a gap between the front of the tabletop and the stand it's attached to.
The display's cables feed through the arm and you cover them up with the Dell cover that snaps in.
This is actually a pretty neat idea for managing the cables, but it only works if you rarely turn the arm. The cover tends to pop out if the cables get jostled.
Plus, the top of my head.
Threading the cables through the arm makes it look very tidy.
You can rotate and tilt it with a single hand, though I'm using two here.
The arm moves along all its axes very smoothly, and has sufficient tension to hold the display in position.
Although it's hard to see how little it tilts forward because of the angle of the photo.
The cables tend to gang up and pop off the bottom of the cover.
The arm rotates left and right. Disembodied hand sold separately.
The arm can hold the monitor pretty low down.
