Excerpt: I needed a monitor for my studio and since I sit in front of one for about 10 hours a day, I had to find the best one and I did. Dell U2412M Ultrasharp is probably the best 24" LED monitor you can buy.
Pros: Adjustable Viewing Angles, Great picture quality, Large Viewing Area, Mini Display Port, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
Summary: I use dual monitors and multiple applications open simultaneously. I wanted a monitor that accommodated two instances of Word in landscape view, displaying two full size pages. This monitor permits two Word pages at 90% magnification which is fine for me. The monitor has a very sharp display and I'm very picky. My other monitor is a Dell 20 inch 2001FP and the two monitors are well matched for vertical screen height.
Summary: I am a gamer and regular computer user and for me this monitor is just perfect. When I built my gaming rig I had to purchase a new monitor for it so had to get rid of my 24" iMac with IPS 1920x1200 resolution, I said oh well I'll just get this 1080p TN (I didn't do my research on TN and IPS before purchase) panel with 2ms response time ( since it was for gaming this was what I was looking at the most ).
Summary: I'm a photographer making the transition to video capture and editing (which will be my primary workflow). I shoot with Canon and exclusively use older Zeiss lenses. I process on a 2010 15" Macbook Pro duo-core i7 processor with 8gb ram. I recently purchased a Spyder 4PRO color calibrator for monitor calibration. I'm not a video gamer, so monitor response time is not that much of a concern (if you primarily game, save $150 and buy a TN panel).
Summary: I was looking for something special to with a new build that I was constructing, but couldn't decide between a 27" 16:9, or a 24" 16:9 1080p monitors. Someone on a message board suggested I look into this model. I had never even considered a dell monitor, for whatever reason.
