Great monitor - my second one

Joe, TigerDirect.com
1 January 2014
  • 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. The color is excellent also.

Yellow tinting on recent RevA00

Siren, Amazon
5 July 2013
  • 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. After failing to be able to match the two monitor's colors, I gave up and looked into if my monitor was defective.

missing an hdmi input on monitor

carl43m, Dell
11 June 2013
  • 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.

Dell considers 5 dead pixels acceptable

Mark John Lucas, Amazon
17 May 2013
  • 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.

Nice monitor But.....

Michael V., Newegg
21 February 2013
  • Summary: I really did like Dell products and have purchased many items from them, but this experience (which is no reflection on Newegg's customer service) has soured me so much that I will NOT be purchasing items from Dell any longer. I caution any one seeking to purchase this or any other non-service tag item of Dell's that your road to Dells customer service will be a bumpy one at best.
  • Pros: This is a great monitor... when it works.
  • Cons: Heaven forbid you should have a problem with a Dell monitor as Dell's customer support has fallen to levels even Sprint would chuckle about.

Dead Pixel + Horrible Flicker

liso, Dell
18 February 2013
  • 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 is given.

Dirty monitor look. The new hotness?

Tamer "Tamer", Amazon
14 December 2011
  • 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. All IPS variation monitors address this problem well. The Dell u2412m seems to not have quite as good a range as other IPS monitors, but it doesn't really matter if you're sitting right in front of it.

Anti-Glare Coating makes screen look grainy/dirty

briankb, Dell
23 November 2011
  • 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.

No Dell Soundbar Available to Run from Monitor Pwr

Anonymous, Dell
30 September 2011
  • 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.
