26 February 2014
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...
Summary: I have really needed a monitor like this for years and FINALLY bit the bullet. Easily I should have gotten it sooner.
Pros: Size, price, performance, IPS, so MUCH better than what I had!! Don't ask, it's just too embarrassing. I can read anything on all of the web sites that I go to. Hint: Don't use cheap TVs as monitors. Yes, monitors are more expensive and worth it.
Cons: I didn't have enough cash for 27" version! OOPS!! That my CON!
Summary: I purchased this monitor after years of wanting a 1920x1200 resolution monitor that didn't feel like an excessive splurge. This monitor felt like a great deal and I'm pleased with my purchase. With free shipping and a saver discount, the small issues I have with this model are negligible.
Pros: +Ideal screen size for reading large documents/illustrations on an average desk. +Extra horizontal resolution (1200 versus the typical 1080) has a significant impact on the number of lines I can read. +Color, brightness were accurate and brilliant out-of-the-box, with no discernible edge or pixel...
Cons: -input plugs are vertical and difficult to access. You need to lift and tilt the monitor to get anything plugged in. -the USB ports are not live when the monitor is off or in power-saver mode. This means phone chargers and input devices turn off when you're away from the computer. This is a probl...
Summary: I have been using Dell monitors for more then 10 years and had several of them replaced undre warranty. Dell was always courteous and, with a deposit of $ 25 to cover the return shipping replaced the questionnable monitors with monitors of equal or better level.
Pros: I have a 2410 and a 2412. One of them is much more expensive than the other one. For the usual applications, i do not see much of a difference... Now, if you put a serious video card behind these monitors and go in fancy territory, there is definitely a difference. Conclusion: At this price it is...
Cons: BUT... It is true: it is not perfectly silent! At times it hums! It took me a while to realise the monitor was the culprit! Not a major problem, unless you work in a perfectly silent environment.
Summary: I like the 1920x1200 resolution myself, but it means dealing with black bars on videos and some games. But the great contrast and simple styling of the monitor make it less noticeable than you'd think.
Pros: Far and away the best monitor I've ever seen. If I was shopping for a monitor, I'd buy this one again in an instant.
