    I'm thinking about purchasing a secondary monitor for my MBP. It is the "DELL 22" HD LCD FLAT SCREEN MONITOR S2209W". I can't seem to confirm anywhere if the screen is matte or glossy? Would this be a good monitor to be placed beside my MBP? Thanks

    The monitor looks fine. I am not sure what you mean by placing it next to your MacBook Pro.

    It will be a secondary monitor so I have a dual monitor display.

    I am aware of what you plan on doing. I am not sure what you mean by is this is a "good one."

    yes, it's matte. most external monitors are.

    As far as quality, it's a $159 monitor...nothing to write home about, a standard TN panel, standard port options, nothing special. Dell makes an OK product but it's still just an average monitor.
