Summary: Bought this as an upgrade to go with my new Windows 8.1 machine replacing a Dell 19" LED that has worked flawlessly since I bought it new a few years ago. I have a very specific sized space height-wise I can fit a monitor into so I did some research on what the largest monitor I could get, that would not only fit but also be compatible with my current Dell AX510PA sound bar. Now as monitors get wider they generally get taller. Makes sense.
Summary: Comments about Dell G2410 Widescreen LCD Monitor: I have 3 of these screens and they are amazing in 3x1. Very energy efficient and colors are some of the best i've seen in a monitor this price.
"Viewing angle; Designers and Photographers beware !"

Pros: Large, cheap, wide, bright screen. Great clarity when at the optimum viewing angle.
Cons: The luminance of the screen varies considerably with the change of viewing angle - if you sit 24 inches from the screen you will experience a gradient of colour across the screen due to the variation of angle between your eye and the screen.
Pros: backlight is bright and energy efficient (minimal heat output). 1920x1080 res for plenty of real-estate but large enough pixel pitch to read standard fixed font sizes on Windows apps. Comes with height-adjust & swivel stand.
Cons: advertised to have soundbar power port, but it doesn't. wish it had usb ports. also, the maximum height is not very tall, but still much better than a fixed stand. I don't think the colors are super-accurate but I haven't calibrated.
Summary: Pros - LED backlit (deep blacks) - 1080p monitor - low power consumption (only $7 per year) - highly rated by expert reviewers - low cost - 1000:1 standard contrast ratio Cons - ambient light sensor - dynamic contrast (1,000,000:1); only changes overall brightness; does not have local dimming - no HDMI connection - TN panel (6-bit panel that can only produce 16.2 million colors; the rest are interpolated to "create" 16.7 million colors; true of all TN panels) - *** and...
Pros: Cons: Text difficult to read, after hours of adjusting every possible setting a magenta color cast remains, energy saving modes simply darken the screen, tilting the monitor back a couple degrees seems to help, but should a user have to do that?
Cons: Others in my office gave up and went back to older monitors rather than continue to use this one with eyes watering and headaches.
Summary: although i'm waiting to receiving the dell g2410 monitor, my assumption is that it'll be a great monitor for good reason. you see, back in february 2009 i purchased the dell s2409w monitor and that one has been great to say the least and should last many more years. so with that, along with the dell g2410 monitor being identical to the dell s2409 in every way but in addition having the more advanced led backlighting rather than the outgoing ccfl backlighting(as in the...
"Overly bright, Washed out colors, Difficult to look at"
4 February 2010
Pros: This monitor physically looks good, has a nice 16:9 form factor, and is certainly inexpensive.
Cons: If feels like staring into a light bulb with poor contrast. If you look at the Outlook 2007 icon in the tray, the orange colors look washed out to yellow (on any settings I tried). Looking at black text on a white background is a bit painful.
Overly bright, washed out colors, difficult to look at

Summary: I found this monitor to be overly bright, the colors washed out, and in general difficult to look at. If feels like staring into a light bulb. As one small example, if you look at the Outlook 2007 icon in the tray, the orange colors look washed out to yellow. Looking at black text on a white background is a bit painful. If you're looking for an inexpensive monitor and don't mind the washed out colors and poor contrast, this may be a good fit, otherwise look elsewhere.
