Default Dell UltraSharp U2410 24" IPS Monitor Review Comment Thread

Monitors with a 23" to 24" size currently represent a sweet spot for many potential buyers since they usually offer great overall value along with a suitably large screen size. Dell has attacked the higher end of this range with their highly popular UltraSharp U2410. It may not be cheap, but this monitor features a high fidelity IPS panel, loads of additional features and plenty of screen real estate.

Just in time for the U2412 .

In addition to the gaming section, you can have the U2410 bypass post processing to reduce input/motion lag to be opar (and even superior) with TN panels.

How can the colors be accurate in games and movies if they are not color managed? Wide-gamut monitors have such horrid colors that they require profiling. Why is this inherent defect of wide-gamut monitors always glossed over in reviews(not just HWC)? Do retina-burning color really attract people that much?



MPC-HC, Windows Picture Viewer, Firefox are color managed.

Great comparison! I personally much prefer the rectangle stand over the V stand, but to each his own.

If this had the V-Stand, it would be a spitting image of my Alienware monitor, menu and everything

I have one and I love it. It is great for gaming and movies. The menu/buttons are a pain when you have to change inputs a lot, especially if the input you are on goes into power-saving mode (ie the computer goes to sleep or is turned off). When this happens the capacitive buttons turn off and can be a pain to re-start. The amount of inputs is impressive and you can even get a speaker bar that connects to the bottom. I have 3 computers hooked up to mine, two share the speak bar and DVI port 2 (Hackintosh and Ubuntu nettop) and my gaming rig uses the DVI 1 input.

There is a way to use PowerStrip to add a color profile to help with that, but I've never been able to get that working properly with my wide gamut monitors.

Unfortunately I have to agree, that my biggest issue with the "wide gamut" craze being more marketecture/e-peen than anything, is that specifically with Windows (all versions) it's not properly compensated for by the o/s.

Maybe one day.

Otherwise nice review AkG!
