Any one here have this monitor? What's your opinion on it? Anything in particular you don't like about it?

Default Dell UltraSharp U2410

Bump.

I have a 20% discount coupon for Dell monitors. I have been reading some of the reviews for this monitor and am wondering if anyone out there has any first hand experience.

Pros and cons to all the H-IPS monitors out right now. The Phillips model seems to be the worst overall, but is also the cheapest. The Dell has the best overdrive performance, which results in the best motion performance. The downside to the Dell is that it has higher than average input lag for the H-IPS monitors. It has a game mode which reduces it to around ~20-30ms I believe, but that still might be a turn off to some. The HP variant would be my choice of all three. It has slight overdrive problems, which are nearly impossible to detect outside of test patters, but has the lowest input lag (~5-10ms for the new revision). All variants have great color (aside from the wide-gamut, which you can alleviate with ATI cards) and great black levels. Also, all three models have shown to have color shifting issues (pink on one side and green on the other) from unit to unit, so be prepared to make an exchange if such issues bother you.

Just to follow up, I'm glad I didn't get this monitor. Has a tad too many problems for my liking.
Just gonna have to hold out for larger versions of the 2209WA

IPS for display purposes is simply the best(I own many IPS panels all NEC Pro). However if you are serious about gaming, TN sadly is the only way to go. To put it simple for gaming you need a display that excels at response time and input lag and the only viable tech that is available that can achieve this closest to CRT is Twisted Nematic(TN). TN as demonstrated is the only LCD tech that can switch fast enough for the new 120hz LCD display units. As of right now you simply can't have the best of both worlds, unless you buy 2 separate monitors, 1 for gaming the other for Daily use.

If I had to give a nod to 1 IPS panel that tried to excel at both and did well for it's time(2007) that would go to the NEC 20WMGX2

What problems are you refering to, I've had the U2410 for a month and I absolutly love it. So far, when gaming I don't bother using game mode since I do not notice any lag.

Last guy who said that me, refered to the Dell 2408wfp. Friggin horrible input lag.
They put an FAQ for it here for all the "issues" (some are just stupid consumers):
U2410 FAQ - DELL COMMUNITY

I was brought back because it's on sale right now for $480.

Anyway, I currently game with my 2209WA at 75hz. It's the best affordable balance I can find between lcd and crt. Ideally I'd want it to be at 85hz+, but that's not happening any time soon.

Once I get back home, I will look at most of these. I say most because I don't have photoshop, but either there is a fix to whatever it is and because I don't feel like using my VGA cable to connect the monitor as this seems pointless in my situation got 2 DVI connectors on my GPU, might as well use them).
