Excerpt: I bought a pair of U2412M monitors for use in a dual monitor display. With a black background, it is apparent that the backlight significantly bleeds through (rather uniformly), reducing the monitors' effective light to dark ratio.
Summary: The colors are washed out and there is a very distinctive yellow tint to the screen.Tried adjusting the colors and white balance as well as several different icc color profiles, and this did not help. The display is totally unusable.
Summary: I am very happy with this monitor. Great picture and resolution. So glad I got the 1920:1200 with the larger effective screen.Buying was a pleasure. Easy process, fast delivery and good communication.
Excerpt: I mainly use this for photo editing. 16: 10 aspect ratio is great. I was a little leery after using high end Apple monitors for years but after I wore the last one out and reading several reviews I decided to try this Dell.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Excerpt: The monitor works all right, and for the price, it is pretty good. I've gotten used to the better screens on our MacBook Pro laptops, but in this case, I just needed a monitor for OS driver development and couldn't rationalize a higher budget.
