Dell UltraSharp U2412M Black 24" Widescreen LED Monitor
6 March 2015
Excerpt: The DELL U2412M is a 24-inch IPS panel display in a widescreen (16:10) resolution, operating at 1920 x 1200. It features a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, 16.7 million display colors, and an LED backlight, though the response time might be a bit longer than some action-focused gamers look for at 8ms.
Excerpt: Dell monitors are quite good in general, and the UltraSharp line are some of the best displays on the market. One of the features that really sets this model apart is a slightly higher maximum resolution than most other 24-inch monitors support.
Summary: With thoughtful design, great performance, and plenty of OSD features, the Dell UltraSharp U2412 fills its value quotient to the brim.
Pros: The Dell UltraSharp U2412m has great performance with excellent ergonomic support and a robust and easy-to-navigate OSD with tons of options for customization. It also has five USB ports, and it's currently available for about $350.
Cons: HDMI is missing from the connection options, and performance-wise, it's not quite there compared with high-end, pro-grade IPS panels, especially when it comes to viewing angles.
Conclusion: After using it, the Dell U2412M comes out with a lot of positives and no big negatives. The screen has a nice 16:10 aspect ratio that makes it feel roomier than a normal 16:9 display, and it has a nice adjustable stand that made it easy to fit on my desk.
Conclusion: Dell’s new 24-inch U2412M comes with a smaller portfolio of input connectors and multimedia options compared to the more expensive Dell U2410 . First of all Dell has removed the HDMI option. That might prove to be a problem if you are planning on connecting external players or gaming consoles.
Pros: IPS panel & picture quality, Fairly good out-of-box settings, Ergonomic adjustability, 16:10 format panel, Price, No serious clouding, Power consumption
Cons: Black depth not on par with VA panels, Dirty screen look, Some overdrive trailing, Black gets lighter from wide angles, No HDMI
Summary: The Dell UltraSharp U2412M, as it turns out is a brilliant monitor. Priced at Rs. 23,000 in India, the U2412M is a tad pricier than some IPS panels out there. There are a few things, however that make this display stand out – excellent performance in both detail and colours – play a major part.
