second choice but satisfied

yolaholga, B&H Photo
6 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I was planning on purchasing the Dell 2410 but it was discontinued when I was ready to buy it, so, I opted for the 2412. I was worried that having a smaller color gamut would hinder photo editing but since the vast majority of my work is in black and white I pulled the trigger with the knowledge that I could return it. After calibrating the monitor with the syder 4 pro I am very pleased with the monitor. It's well built and the four usb inputs are a definite plus.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up

OK except for TERRIBLE text

Mangochuy, Amazon
5 October 2013
  • Summary: This monitor is OK, but the anti-glare coating is so heavy that smallish text is TERRIBLE, as in terribly chunky and with ghosting. I tried everything to make it the best it could be. My other monitors render text much better. When I put the same window of text across two monitors, it is clear (no pun intended) that this monitor is substantially worse.

Amazingly beautiful!

Hyenas, Dell
3 October 2013
  • Summary: I was completely amazed at how crisp and clear this monitor is. I have an old U2412M on my desk, probably one of the first made. The one I just got for my Dell XPS-8500 desktop at home is just stunningly beautiful, so much better than the old one at work. It's SO easy on my very weak eyes and movies look just incredible on it.

White color is not satisfying and yellowish!

MVatansever, Dell
3 October 2013
  • Summary: I bought this item today, I spend 4 hours to calibrate my monitor's colors. But the white color is yellowish even in 7900K!. When I cool down to 9600K, yellowness mixes with the cool blue and white seems greenish. I called the dell support, they claimed that this is not a technical issue!

Great display quality for the price

Workerbee,, TigerDirect.com
24 September 2013
  • Summary: Pros: The display quality and price (on sale) are great. Cons: It doesn't want to work with my KVM switch, so I'm looking into a workaround. Also, the bottom bezel (or the screen) is bowed toward the center, so it creates a thin-thick-thin-appearing Windows screen edge across the bottom. Since I work with straight lines all day and am AR, it catches my eye and bugs me.

Looks really nice

  • Summary: Nice monitor, good picture. Don't let Windows 7 update your driver - it messed up my monitor. Installing driver from Dell website fixed it though.
  • Pros: Good picture

Love this monitor!

Timmah, B&H Photo
13 September 2013
  • Excerpt: I am very happy with my purchase of this monitor. Can't beat the price for what you get IMO. e-IPS technology gives you brighter, richer colors than a typical TN panel for a bit less than a true IPS monitor. But the big thing for me is the resolution. I don't like the common 24" 1920 x 1080 monitors because they seem to short in height in ratio to the long length. But with this one (1920 x 1200) you get over an inch in height. Highly recommended!
  • Pros: Adjustable, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors

Best IPS Best Value

Assaf, B&H Photo
11 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Great screen, its the 2nd for me. I'm working in GFX and for me this screen is great. Connecting is very easy, I use macbook pro retina and using the thunderbolt to DVI cable. Great feature is the extra 4 USB.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors

Good monitor with a couple significant flaws

Adalard Stevenson "A.", Amazon
10 September 2013
  • Summary: I have had two of these on my desk in a dual-monitor setup for two years now. First, the positives: The colors are far more accurate than TN monitors. The 16:10 aspect ratio is the sweet spot for productivity. The negatives: The anti-glare coating gives the display a sparkle effect that makes it look dirty all the time. White does not appear to be a solid color. Other reviews complaining about the anti-glare are spot-on.
