Summary: There are several sites with configurations for colors to get it just right. Otherwise buying one of the calibration spiders may be a good idea if you want to make sure you have the color set properly.
Pros: Great monitor! beautiful colors and very bright and vibrant. I do not use it for photo editing or video editing I bought them for gaming. 8ms is high but I personally can not notice an issue. I just bought two more for a triple monitor setup.
Excerpt: Bought because of the good reviews. It's a decent monitor, but doesn't have the ability to adjust like i thought it would. With a calibrator it may be but haven't bought one yet. Without a calibrator you are limited to just a few options and they are not very good.
Excerpt: Thirty- and twenty-seven-once screens seems too large for me. I purchased my first U2412M after spending hours studying specs and reviews. I purchased my second one a week ago. The stand is terrific. The height adjusts easily and it's east to rotate the monitor from landscape to portrait mode.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Excerpt: I needed an extra monitor for video editing to work alongside my MacBook Pro and this one met all my expectations - good price, IPS panel, matte screen. While it's not as sexy as the Apple displays, it's a great value and does exactly what I needed it to do.
Summary: Like every Dell monitor ever, this has the usual USB hub built into the monitor. I'd add my thoughts on that to the review, but I keep forgetting that the USB ports are there!
Pros: I bought this because I'm a stickler for aspect ratio. 16:9 is too narrow for me, but I needed to move on from 4:3. I was just looking to get something in a 16:10 AR that was affordable, but instead I received one of the best monitors I've ever used. I'm not a huge imageophile or whatever you wan...
Cons: The biggest problem I had with the monitor was its Dynamic Contrast mode, which was enabled by default. I'm not quite sure what it was supposed to do, but what it mostly did was make the bright parts of my games SUPER BRIGHT while the dark parts became very hard to see. I quickly disabled it thro...
Excerpt: This was an upgrade in the "man room" from a 40" 720p 60Hz to beautiful and crisp 1080 @ 120Hz. Great picture. In addition I used to have a hard time picking up many of the HD channels. Always thought it was the cable company's fault (they're so easy to dislike).
Excerpt: Bought this Dell monitor on the recommendation of a professional photographer/friend who does quite a bit of post-processing. Love the screen size for viewing my own images, and the image quality it provides.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
