Dell UltraSharp U2412M Black 24" Widescreen LED Monitor
3 weeks ago
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. That said, the fidelity of this monitor is impressive, and like most IPS panel displays, it offers a very solid viewing angle of 178 degrees both vertically and horizontally.
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. This one can go up to 1920x1200, while most other 24-inch models only support up to 1920x1080.
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. But we wish the minor backlighting wasn’t present. The design is attractive and the build quality is sturdy enough to last quite some time.
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. The contrast ratio was good, power use was low, and the response time for gaming was also very good. The overall dE values were acceptable but not fantastic, and the screen was relatively uniform.
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. For PC users it does not really matter. The SD card reader has also been removed but to me that is no great loss.
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
