Excerpt: Based on all the reviews i purchased this monitor. Not enough adjustability and couldn't get it to match my laptop. Then purchased a calibrator and still can't get it to match. Just not happy with it and sorry i bought it. Thought it would be much better.
Summary: This is my second Dell U2412M monitor. I like the 1920x1200 resolution. Monitors with that resolution are few and far between. The extra 120 lines of vertical resolution is great on web pages. I use 2 monitors on both my computers. It is nice to have the same resolution on all monitors.
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.
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: They say you get what you pay for, and I picked this up on sale. I made my peace with the dead pixel, but in the month I've had this monitor, a nasty flicker has developed. Trying to get support from Dell is frustrating since this monitor doesn't have a service tag, which seems to be how all support...
Summary: Pros: - Viewing angle: Much better than a TN monitor: This is very important for monitors that are 24+ inches as all TNs look significantly darker at the top even when sitting right in front of them. This is very noticeable in dark areas of movies and games.
Summary: Anti-glare coating makes the screen look dirty and is very distracting. I'm a programmer and viewing text on a white background the AG coating is very clear and very distracting. Even with the brightness turned down to 45 it is still very noticeable.
Summary: I should have known better than to buy an entry level IPS display. There seems to be a problem with viewing angle though I am right in front of the monitor, on a white screen the bottom third of the screen takes on a golden color.

Summary: This is an LCD monitor that uses LED back lighting. The blues are very blue (even after adjusting the color). I'm running with as a dual monitor with a 24" Apple iMac LCD monitor. (It doesn't come close to the picture quality of the Apple). Take that out of the equation and its a decent monitor.
