Summary: I expected better, but this is the second monitor - supposedly new, not refurbished - and it's no where near matching the first I purchased about a year ago. I'm waiting on a response from Dell, but this is not encouraging.
Summary: For the price, it's great as a Cinema Display replacement. Viewing angle isn't quite as nice. Color reproduction is okay. Using retina/4k displays spoil you though, so it's not those. Very decent panel for the money.
Excerpt: We use this monitor for publications from our computer. Buying a new monitor you expect it to have the latest updates. This monitor does not accept an HDMI cable. I cannot say that it is not sharp. But to call it Ultra Sharp? I give this product a 3.5 stars.
Summary: Rev A01 with some backlight bleed and no dead pixels. Dell phone support was helpful, it took about 30 minutes to complete a service request. They'll send me another monitor, new I hope. After arrival, I need to return the defective using their prepaid shipping label.
Pros: Good color.
Cons: No display when computer woke up, monitor will not POST.
Excerpt: Bought because of the good reviews. It's a decent monitor, but doesn't have the ability to adjust like i thought it would. With a calibrator it may be but haven't bought one yet. Without a calibrator you are limited to just a few options and they are not very good.
Summary: I brought a U2412M in 2012 along with a XPS8500. I was very pleased and happy since. The monitor is great in terms of displaying real colors, handling well photo edits, games.... I never have any issue with it.
