Summary: Very happy with this purchase. I've been using the monitor for about a month. Very easy to setup. It's a little difficult to control the menu (perhaps just my fat fingers), but setting are intuitive. Excellent picture. Well worth the money.
Summary: When I first turned this monitor on I was disappointed in its performance. The colors were rather dull. It needs to be adjusted correctly. I first used Liquid Color which made things better. Then I made manual adjustments based on my subjective preferences. These adjustments were made to "Game" Mode. Here are the settings I like: Brightness 76 Contrast 76 Hue 50 Saturation 70 Sharpness 50 Dynamic cont. On Using these, the display looks beautiful.
Great monitor for every purpose--best bang for your buck

Summary: I have been using this monitor for a few weeks now. For work I write a lot but at night I am all Lightroom and Photoshop. I mainly purchased the screen to make photo editing easier but not so much for having a better writing experience. I love the high end Dell WUXGA screen of my laptop--super crisp and sharp, same resolution as this monitor but on 15".
Summary: First of all, this monitor is designed for mainstream users who surf the Internet, read and write email, watch videos, perform word processing, fill-out spreadsheets, and write code. This monitor is NOT targeted towards those who need to see a wide gamut of colors for photography, video editing, and graphics design (see the U2410 model instead). Out of the box, the monitor is not calibrated.
Summary: I bought this monitor on sale. 16:10 is perfect for working. Color is so real and so clear. And, its not too bright to hurt my eys. I should buy this earlier so I don't need to spend money to buy other 3 monitors.
Summary: This is the 3rd U2412M I have bought. These monitors are large and get great color. The actual monitor stand is sturdy and allows for a huge range of motion and monitor adjustment. The monitors also have a lot of bells and whistles such as built in USB hub. Great product!
Summary: After reading the reviews, I felt fairly confident about buying this monitor, though I was worried about the hazy/dirty look upon which some have commented... I'm no professional on this topic, but I can't see any haze or anything on mine. Just pure HD goodness. I would not hesitate to buy this monitor again.
