Excerpt: I read the yellow tint reviews but didn't heed the warnings. received the dell u2412m for the purpose of photo editing. all went well until I brought up some photos. Yes indeed yellow tint very apparent. my wife even noticed. sent it back and upgraded to a ASUS PB278Q. hoping for the best.
Summary: I used a 1280x1024, 4:3, 19 inch monitor for 8 years. Going from that to this beauty is HUGE. Also, I see no ghosting, or lag what so ever. Even playing a racing game(Euro Truck Simulator 2). My panel came with a single dead pixel and just requested an RMA.
Pros: Absolutely stunning colors, very sharp, colors pop! The monitor is amazing from any angle unlike a TN panel. The stand is extremely sturdy, even more so than my old Dell! You have a large amount of height adjustment, a large amount of turning radius and if you wanted to you can put the monitor in...
Cons: Price, but I totally love this panel. Since most games, movies, and TV are in 1080p (16:9 Aspect Ratio) you could have either a stretched screen, or black bars on your screen.
Summary: I bought 2 of these on sale. Both are rev A00 Neither have: Illumination bleed; hot or dead pixels; Display Port issues. Both look the same (placed together) and color/contrast was well adjusted out of box.
Pros: Sale price (two forty) is a great price for this monitor. Sturdy adjustable stand. Actual physical buttons (not "touch").
Excerpt: I bought two of these to replace my old outdated mismatched monitors. The one thing that really caught my attention was that it was a 16:10 ratio and had height adjustments. Those are two feature that seem to be hard to find anymore.
Summary: The most demanding uses I have for display hardware are my work image editing (Photoshop, et cetera) and recreational PC gaming. I was *so* satisfied with my previous Dell monitor that needed to be replaced after many years of flawless service that I was apprehensive that I couldn't determine a...
Pros: Top notch display image. And the 16:10 aspect ratio is an unexpected plus for a little vertical room for the bottom-of-screen user interface while running 16:9 video or games
Pros: Works perfectly, text and images are extremely sharp. I'm a software developer and I work on UI and code all day. This is the perfect monitor for that. Much sharper than my samsung 24" sync master.
Summary: Picked up 2 on sale for 239 and love them both. I compared it directly for a few days with the u2414h and went with this one because of the size and color performance. If you could combine this monitor with the bezel thickness of the u2414h at a 239 price point you'd have the perfect monitor.
Pros: Stunning colors and contrast. Flexible mount (90 degree rotation) works well with Eyefinity
Cons: Bezel is thicker than I'd like for multi-display use
Cons: I found out my monitor is REVA01, and distinctly yellowish hue not up to the standard, i have another one which is much better (REVA03). Even though it said manufactured 04/2014, i don't know why i got older model.
