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.
Summary: I wanted to find a monitor to connect my MacBook Pro to in order to have a more ergonomic home office. I'm an engineering graduate student, so I spend a lot of time at my computer and wanted something that would make reading scientific articles, word processing, multiple monitor-managing, and coding more enjoyable and comfortable. I was directed to this monitor by the recommendation of a good friend who bought one for a similar purpose.
Excellent viewing angle, 16:10 ratio, good build quality

Summary: I am a software engineer by profession and use the monitor mostly for home-office type of work. Since I put this monitor in the bed-room, I also watch an occasional movie or put up a slide-show. First off, this is my first IPS monitor and the viewing angle is brilliant. A better viewing angle is absolutely necessary for watching movies and slide-shows from a distance and from any angle.
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.
