Summary: They say you get what you pay for, and I picked this up on sale. I made my peace with the dead pixel, but in the month I've had this monitor, a nasty flicker has developed. Trying to get support from Dell is frustrating since this monitor doesn't have a service tag, which seems to be how all support is given.
Excerpt: I bought this monitor to use with my new MacBook Pro, primarily for photographic work, and I'm very pleased with it. Crystal clear display, excellent resolution, easy setup with the Mac, and it takes up very little real estate on my desk. If I had to find a fault, it'd be that the USB connectors are difficult to reach -- it pretty much requires turning the monitor face down to see what you're doing. Other than that, it's great.
Pros: Adjustable height, Adjustable Viewing Angles, Great picture quality, Small Footprint
Summary: Hello everyone. So I just got this monitor. I just want to make it clear, that I am not a designer, photographer or someone who, for professional, or whatever other reason is very picky about colors and distinguishing between 96 and 100% blacks. I am a scientist and I mostly use this monitor in portrait orientation (one of the reasons I actually bought it is that it easy rotates 90 degrees -- and it indeed does that easily) for reading articles and writing.
Excerpt: An improvement over the previous Dell model (the U2410M). Excellent color, brightness and, most importantly to me, warm-up time. The previous model was excellent, but took way too long to warm up and shot true colors and contrast.
Pros: Adjustable Viewing Angles, Fast Warm-up, Great picture quality, Large Viewing Area, Low Weight, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
Excerpt: I'm a video editor who has worked in the business professionally since 2006, and I finally invested in a larger-scale editing system at home. When purchasing my system, I knew I could only buy one monitor right now, with a plan to buy a second one later on. I decided to get the U2412M after some reviews from other editors online, and my expectations weren't high. But as soon as I took it out of the box, I knew I had a great product.
Pros: Adjustable Viewing Angles, Affordable, Great picture quality, Large Viewing Area, Quality Manufacturing
