Excerpt: This is my second IPS monitor and I am very pleased. I took it out of the box, plugged it in, ran the Huey Pro calibration and began using it. My old monitor has CFL backlight vs the Dell U2412M. One thing I notice is that my old monitor "warmsup" for the first 5 min or so, vs the U2412M which appears to be ready to go immediately. I didn't find it necessary to install the CD or make any setting changes to the monitor.
Excerpt: First and foremost, for Photoshop work. 5 Stars. For Netfilx and again 5 Stars. The Resolution is superb. Color outstanding. Only negative is that the on-liner user manual is not as useful as it could be, and the info that comes with the monitor will just barely help you set it up. This means that working the color controls at the lower right is a guessing game until you realize what allows you to do what. The 24" screen size is a eyeful! Good buy for the money!
