Overbright and difficult to adjust for imaging purposes. Runs hot!

Stephen Baig, Amazon
14 March 2013
  • Summary: Extremely sharp imaging. Too bright by twice for matching monitor to color printer. Not able to adjust brightness to the level recommended by Datacolor Spyder4Pro. Photographers beware ------- NO BUILT-IN GAMMA ADJUSTMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This monitor throws a lot of heat.

3 Stars on the edge of 2

T, Amazon
11 January 2013
  • Summary: I really wanted this monitor to work, the unit itself is stylish. The menu system works pretty well, and is very slick with the touch sensitive "button-free" design on the side of the monitor. It has every kind of connector I could hope for and more, plus rotates 90 degrees.

Disappointed

Robert R., Newegg
22 July 2012
  • Summary: For the price you might want to try other makers. I have a Dell 20" 2001FP which is still going strong but would not reccommend the U2410.
  • Pros: Color is beautiful 24" size is perfect Adjustment is versatile
  • Cons: Screen flashes intermittently after 10 minutes of being on. Very annoying. Seems to be the lcd backlight (not led). This didn't start until after 30 day Newegg return period. Dealing with Dell is a pain. Also, buttons are too easily activated.

Great Monitor; Annoying features

Jason K., Newegg
9 December 2011
  • Summary: Price is high - but I think the monitor stand and color matching are worth it.
  • Pros: DVI, HDMI & Display port options. Color Matching & Viewing Angle are impressive. Monitor Stand has a good range of adjustment.
  • Cons: Two Things. The Power button is in the worst spot. Bottom right. I nudge this thing constantly. Since, I am dual-monitor, this ruins the extended desktop setup and shoves my desktop onto my Cintiq. The adjustment buttons make an loud piercing screeching noise. This can be turned off by going deep...

OK, but too expensive

Doug A., Newegg
5 April 2011
  • Summary: I was hoping to be amazed by the image quality, but sadly, I wasn't. Side by side, my old 22" monitor has all the image quality of this monitor for half the price.
  • Pros: Nice image, 1920x1200, fun adjustment buttons, no dead pixels, nice stand with lots of adjustments, loads of connections (including HDMI). I'm sure this will last a long time.
  • Cons: Too expensive.

Beware of poor customer support

david b., Newegg
1 April 2011
  • Summary: All in all i could not justify buying this monitor again if i had to do it.If i had known that Dell's customer service sucked as bad as it does....nuh uh id buy the hp zr24w.Its sad that we spend this much money on a monitor to get slapped in the face with poor customer service.
  • Pros: The monitor itself is fine,no problems...very very minute green/pink tint issue but only in certain preset modes/brightness setting.turning up the brightness helps get rid of it.The colors are very vivid bright,not washed out or anything.
  • Cons: Maybe its just me but i found it hard to get the colors perfectly accurate but im not using a colorimeter.I feel its a bit over priced for what you get.I did receive the A04 revision so no dithering.Such a shame that this monitor is build by a company that doesnt support it properly.Ive spoken to...

DELL U2410 - Not for editors.

VisualEchos, Amazon
10 July 2010
  • Summary: Being the best 24" IPS monitor out there for the money, I too purchased this monitor in hopes of getting a good one. Too bad that didn't happen. My first issue was with the color profile not working with Photoshop, but a quick Google search fixed that (search betav3 ICC if you need the fix).

Not for me ...

Aleksey Chistyakov, Amazon
24 February 2013
  • Summary: I'm a long-time Mac user and after I changed my iMac to MBPro I've started to sniff for a good external monitor. This particular model has very very bright screen 30cd/m2 brighter than Thunderbolt display but I still can't calibrate it to get the same picture I used to see on my previous Macs.

Build quality not a strong point

Danno, Amazon
9 November 2012
  • Summary: I have, over the coming year, become more involved in photography and photo editing and I was on the hunt for a primary monitor specifically for this purpose. I have been a Dell hardware person for 12 years so didn't think twice about the build quality at the time, my concern was image quality.
