Yup, sure do. Mostly folding here, so we can dominate in the Chimp Challenge yearly

Just missed the get together in T.O. this October due to the birth of a new 7lbs. folder!

I consider it the next step to the 2209WA. Low input lag, but a little bit worse overdrive causing some reverse ghosting. I play games often on it, and it doesn't bother me, and it's hard for me to pick up even when looking at it.

The real advantage the 2209 has over the 2412 is the 75hz refresh rate for "moar fps!"
More reverse ghosting on the U2412M. I was able to get into the service menu and shut off the overdrive, as well as adjust it lower for different results. It has an on/off toggle and goes up and down from a level of 55 (going from memory).

The problem with the original batch of 2209WAs (which I had in Jan 2009) was that they often had a blue to red tint on whites going across the screen. This is tough to calibrate.

What would be a good calibrated tool to buy?
Spyder3 Pro is probably a great software/hardware combination, which seems to work well for wide as well as sRGB gamut.

Yeah, I have to ask too. These settings/results seem absolutely WAY OFF

Lowest contrast of an IPS panel? Everyone is getting minimally 750:1 contrast after calibration and I was getting 1100:1 before calibrating !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11 This was with my NEC tuned X-Rite I1D2 sensors, but I am waiting for my favorite program to support my new Eye One Display 3/Pro to get even better results.

I have to re-read the review to see what the testing equipment was, but it seems like a different screen than what I got. Default settings were 1100:1 or higher at all brightness levels, and gamma was in the 2.1 range for me at 75 contrast (default).

Here's what I got before I started calibrating (for contrast ratio):

This is with the standard color preset.

For those concerned about a dominant blue (typical of W-LED back-lit screens it seems), try using the "Color Temp" preset with "5700K" selected.

I found this to be a very nice setting. It's sitting next to a well-calibrated screen costing three times as much and it's looking fairly similar.

Xeven: How about 10^8.450980400142567e-001 -as a possible replacement for "10e"
