Summary: I was sent Revision A00 monitor. I have 2 of the same monitor at Revision A02. My Revision A02 monitors are much brighter and have a very bright white. When I hooked this monitor up to it all I can tell you is that it had a yellow tint. Yes I tried defaults, setting at my other monitors values, and even downloading some special profile for it. Either way it still had yellow tint just like every body says online.
Buyer Beware! Yellow Tint Issues Now Plague This Model!!

Summary: UPDATE: 01.22.2014 Well my replacement U2412M came in from Dell today and guess what! It has the same yellow tint issue as well! So far I am 3 out of 3, all having the yellow tint issue. I was hopeful that this one would be better considering it said "Manufactured December 2013" while the other two said "Manufactured November 2013", but nope it didn't matter.
Summary: The colors are washed out and there is a very distinctive yellow tint to the screen.Tried adjusting the colors and white balance as well as several different icc color profiles, and this did not help. The display is totally unusable.
Summary: I bought this item today, I spend 4 hours to calibrate my monitor's colors. But the white color is yellowish even in 7900K!. When I cool down to 9600K, yellowness mixes with the cool blue and white seems greenish. I called the dell support, they claimed that this is not a technical issue!
Good luck explaining backlight bleed to Dell support.

Summary: Purchased two monitors. Had each one exchanged twice. Backlight bleed was so terrible, I thought it HAD to be the result of defective units. Nope, Dell makes them this way. If you're willing to see past the backlight issues, another frustration I ran across is the inability to watch 16:9 content without having it scale to fill the screen. That means any 1080 input will always be distorted. (There is an option to center letterbox 4:3 content, but not 16:9).
Excerpt: I thought this monitor would be super sharp with accurate color according to the reviews I read before purchasing but in my opinion it is not. I've tried calibrating, etc... but still need to use my Macbook Pro as a refrence when editing photos. For me this monitor is not working and I will most likely return it and look for another. I gave this 1 star because of it's large size (for watching movies while on the road) and easy set-up.
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: 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: 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.
