Received a version A00 made in December 2013, had Yellow Tint
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...
Excerpt: I just wrote a glowing review of the monitor. My only problem was that after adjusting the monitor up and down (rather than the usual lengthwise), the image did not switch accordingly. Dell Technical support informed me that this feature does not work with Mac.
Excerpt: I bought this for my MacBook Air to drive at 1920x1200 sitting above the regular display in a "T" configuration. I have the brightness set at 20 (of 100)- very bright monitor on Atdec Visidec VF-AT Focus Articulated Single Arm stand. Gorgeous, rock solid display for office work.
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!
Excerpt: After careful evaluation of several monitors, this Dell turned out to be my hands down favorite. I had an old 17" HP. Then I was given a gift of a 21.5" Asus. It was fine, but unfortunately got a vision problem (macular degernation) a week after.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
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: Model: U2412Mb rev A00 manufactured November 2013 Reading reviews, I was skeptical of getting this monitor because Rev A00 were shipping out with yellow tints. I ordered anyway and to my surprise I did not have the yellow tint.
Excerpt: Great monitor for just about anything from business to photogrpahy post-processing. The included 4 USB ports are great, as is the ability to connect to PC via either DVI or VGA. It's a bit too bright out of the box, but that is an easy 5 second adjustment. Highly recommended.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy to Calibrate, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
