As photography professionals and computer enthusiasts flock to the banner of IPS technology, the business arena is still ruled by TN monitors. After all, these lower end panels meet most businesses' needs but typically sport a lower cost. Business consumers usually have four main priorities: energy efficiency, performance, ease of setup/use, and value. However, finding a panel with all of these aspects rolled into one package has become harder and harder. The all new TN-based Dell P2412H on the other hand has been designed from the ground up to give business users exactly what they want without any budget busting extraneous gimmicks or gadgets.

To help the P2412H meet the specific needs of the business market, Dell has included many features not usually seen in the sub-$300 category. The most important of these is a power sipping LED backlight that promises to deliver above average display capabilities with few of the negatives usually associated with LED technology. The P2412H’s power efficiency has been combined with physical input buttons and a portrait and landscape capable stand, as well as Dell’s signature integrated USB ports.

These features should help make the Dell P2412H a suitable choice for home and office users alike. However, the P2412H is first and foremost a business class monitor. To be considered a truly successful business class display, the P2412H will have to succeed in all four of the priority areas mentioned above—including value. With such a high asking price—$299 for a 16:9 TN monitor—it is going to have a tough time justifying its IPS class pricing. Nevertheless, value is not the same as initial cost. If this monitor can prove outstanding in efficiency, performance, and ease of use, that $299 outlay may in fact offer exceptional long-term value.
