Excerpt: I bought this monitor for use with my Dell XPS laptop for dual monitor editing using Lightroom. Works great and makes PP in Lr much more accurate. Wish I had added this monitor a year ago. Easy to calibrate using Datacolor Spyder4pro.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Size Is Just Right, Vivid Colors
Excerpt: A 24" monitor without breaking you wallet. I have 2 of these Dell monitors, one on a PC and one on a Mac. Both work great in an office setting and the other in a photo studio setting. The colors and contrast are great. Just as good as the Apple 24" I have on another Mac.
Excerpt: Just purchased this monitor to add it to a pair of other U2412M's that I've been using for almost two years. These monitors are so much better than the entry-level monitors that are sold at a lower price. Colors are accurate, but using my HUEY RGB calibration tool makes them really shine.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Summary: Cutting to the Chase (Value vs product & purpose): I was upgrading from a Dell 20" 16:10 ratio (1680x1050) 2007 LCD Monitor which had no actual problems with it, but I wanted more real-estate and a higher res image.
Excerpt: Wow! Got this as a monitor for my Dell Latitude 10 tablet when at my desk at work. Feels like IMAX. Crisp... even at the highest res I don't have to enlarge the text or wear reading glasses to see the small print.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Summary: I had wanted to purchase a larger monitor. My vision isn't as good as it was years ago (I'm getting more and more far sighted). I'm now using TWO monitors on my computer which gives me screen real estate. I had a 19" 1440x900 monitor and a 22" 1680x1050.
Good luck explaining backlight bleed to Dell support.

Summary: Purchased two monitors. Had each one exchanged twice. Backlight bleed was so terrible, I thought it HAD to be the result of defective units. Nope, Dell makes them this way. If you're willing to see past the backlight issues, another frustration I ran across is the inability to watch 16:9 content...
