At that price and size (16:10) IPS. Does it even exist?

TN panels and 16:9 maybe?


Lowest price on U2412M $349.

I think he should go with the dell, the costumer service and panel guarantee is unbeatable.

Or maybe take a look at the HP zr24w?

Yeah, I think so too. So no other choices than the U2412m?
HP? Nah.. since they are dropping the consumer business...

I have one, I like it. Good for gaming, sRGB so no blown out/oversaturated colors, a responsive panel with super-low input lag (8ms tops), IPS viewing angles, and a decent stand with up, down, tilt and portRAIT. It's also LED so it doesn't heat up at all and is a power-miser. All in all, highly recommended.

Need info?

Here you go John!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Their Monitor panel warranites aren't any better(in fact worse) than the vast majority of Good brands out there.
And as for Dells customer dervice I didn't get to drink that kool aid at all their service is lousy!
Here is my story.


Order a u2311, had 1 dead pixel. I phone Dell CS, was told the replacement will be sent no question asked. Got the replacement, all was golden. Now what to do with the dead pixel monitor. Phone dell CS again, the lady sends me a prepaid purolator label.

Takes them 5 second to pick up the phone.
Great service.




Wow, Thank you 10e, Great review, and thanks for the pictures.

Will definitely get one when its time for a upgrade.

Yeah, I've dealt with Dell's CS and they are indeed great. Customer is still undecided, but the U2412M looks like a winner.

I think the biggest advantage to the Dell monitors with regards to CS, they still cross ship. This means the least possible down time for you.
