Summary: The Dell UltraSharp 24 Monitor - U2412M is an awesome monitor that is crystal clear and has some really useful features. I really like the USB ports on the back of the monitor to connect all my devices. Great value!
Excerpt: Resolution is a huge step up from most monitors at this price point. Bright and viewable from all angles. Do yourself a favor and buy a calibration tool with it if you're doing anything photo related. Color out of the box is bad.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Excerpt: The U2412M UltraSharp 24" LED Monitor by Dell is and outstanding monitor with very sharp images of photos taking. It's great for editing and the colors are very precise. Additionally, the adjustability feature is easy to use and adjust.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Summary: Great monitor and a deal if you can get it for the right price.Color, viewing angle and control panel are all top notch. Only complaints are that it doesn't have a native HDMI connection, but this can be remedied with an adapter.
Excerpt: I've only had the monitor for a week or so, but so far it's everything I hoped for. Next to my older, cheap Dell 2208 WFP, the U2412M stands out in every way. The color accuracy is far superior, and the quality of the image is excellent. I haven't used any calibration software, but even using a basic gamma adjustment program gives excellent results. The whites are whiter, the blacks are blacker, and all of the colors are great.
Excerpt: The picture is deep, well saturated and color accurate; easy to calibrate with my Spyder2. Gaming response time is excellent, no blurring or ghosting. No dark corners, viewing angle is not an issue. Easily the best 24" LED monitor at this price point. The extra 120 lines (11% more screen surface) is surprisingly useful, especially with photo editing and MS Office applications. Love the matte screen for depth. The only downsides so far? 1.
Received a version A00 made in December 2013, had Yellow Tint

Summary: I bought one of the Dell U2412M about 2 years ago and received a rev A03, great monitor, good colors, etc.. Figured that the U2412M will be no longer sold soon as its a bit long in the tooth, so I ordered a new (Amazon sold) Dell U2412M, and even though it was Manufactured December 2013, it was a rev A00, but had a nasty yellow tint.
Excerpt: I just wrote a glowing review of the monitor. My only problem was that after adjusting the monitor up and down (rather than the usual lengthwise), the image did not switch accordingly. Dell Technical support informed me that this feature does not work with Mac. It would have been nice, but is not a deal breaker since I really like the monitor otherwise. I have an older Mac, but Dell did not specify that this was model specific to the Mac.
Excerpt: I bought this for my MacBook Air to drive at 1920x1200 sitting above the regular display in a "T" configuration. I have the brightness set at 20 (of 100)- very bright monitor on Atdec Visidec VF-AT Focus Articulated Single Arm stand. Gorgeous, rock solid display for office work.
