Excerpt: My old monitor died and I replaced it with the U2412M and am very pleased with both the value and the performance. The colors are excellent. I do photo editing so color is important...no vital. This monitor really performs.
Pros: Easy To Collaborate Across Programs, Easy to Navigate, Needs Almost No Adjustmt
Summary: I bought this monitor based on the reviews and it worked well when it did. But few days ago, it developed a purple vertical line from the top of the screen to the bottom of the screen. This is a problem that LCD screens sometimes develop. There is no way to repair this problem. I am trying to see if Dell will replace it under warranty. Please read this article on the problem that I am talking about.
Summary: The monitor looks great when you look at it seated directly in front of it. But, I am disappointed with it because it has three dead pixels (little black spots on the screen). Dell says this is acceptable within the industry standard. So, no help given. $300.00 lighter and so unsatisfied. I am unable to recommend this because of the quality of the item I received and the lack of help from the manufacturer and distributor.
Summary: I bought two U2412M monitors about a month ago. I was so excited to extend my MB Pro display. I wasn't to believe that these monitors would match the display of Retina. I connect these montiors through Thunderbolt port and DVI.
Excerpt: Pro: I use it for spreadsheets and retouching and editing photography. Very sharp, good color and no adjustments were necessary. Con: Slightest vibration and the monitor shakes which takes away from the quality of which Dell is noted for. I would have been happy paying half the price for this model. It is just not stable on the support bar.
Excerpt: I use this monitor mainly for ameture photography photo editing. For the price, this monitor is hands down the best I have ever used. Great color right out of the box. A tad brite but not a retina burnner.. Great buy...
Pros: Easy To Collaborate Across Programs, Easy to Customize, Easy to Navigate, Versatile
