Great Monitor But Bad Revision with A Yellow Tint Revision A00
22 July 2013
Summary: This is one of the best monitors out in the market today. You can't go wrong with this monitor if you want to play video games, edit photos or just surf the internet. I am currently the owner of one of these monitors for the past year and have been so happy with it that I decided to purchase another. Well I read that many people had been receiving monitors revision A00 with build dates in 2013 that had a yellow tint.
Summary: Excellent 16:10 premium monitor. Using it for general purpose applications. Excellent price to performance value. With the competitive pricing you get convenience of multiple monitor setup on reasonable budget.
Summary: I bought this monitor to replace a professional Dell monitor I bought many years ago and now was dying. I now have a 4 monitor stand that allows me to attached 4 of these monitors. I do a lot of video processing as well as photo and other kinds of graphic work and the 1920x1200 resolution is much better than the standard 1920x1080. It is hard to find good quality 1920x1200 monitors without spending a fortune and the price points on these monitors are within my budget.
Summary: I have an old 2209wa monitor with LCD back light. From what I have seen, the coating is much better then on 2412M model. Sharpness is about the same but brightness is much higher on 2412M even after calibration the screen is difficult to read, it hearts my eyes. Text mode is a little better but still is too bright. It is 6 bit panel, previous models where 8 bit, gamut is very limited and it is the same as my 2209wa. srgb 95%, adobe rgb 80%.
Summary: Just purchased a second Dell U2412 from Amazon last week to complement my first which I purchased last year. After setting it up next to my original one, I immediately saw a very noticeable uniform yellow tinge to the screen with the exact same monitor settings. After failing to be able to match the two monitor's colors, I gave up and looked into if my monitor was defective.
Summary: So after weeks of watching, I went ahead and bought two of these monitors for 265 when a resaler (Triplenet pricing) was having a sale. First impressions were good, the monitors had a simplistic, utilitarian design I especially liked and the stands seemed solid (I'm using a monitor stand so I can't comment on those). Upon installation I was blown away by the display quality and viewing angles.
Summary: Seems a lot of gamers are a bit wary of IPS monitors due to possible blurring. I was a bit wary too but decided to take a chance on this monitor anyway. Now I don't play lots of first person shooters, if that's your thing. What I do play are games like World of Warcraft, Rift, Xcom: Enemy Unknown, World of Tanks, Rise of Flight, you get the idea not super fast moving games but certainly a fair bit removed from the likes of Solitaire and Farmville.
Summary: I am disappointed that the ultrashap series of premium monitor have only a displayport and a vga port. My dell pc has an hdmi output and a vga output. I would rather use the hdmi. The dell ultra series back in 2010/20111 had hdmi.
