2 out of 5 eggsRefurbished replacement.

Pros: Good color. Fast response from Dell, replacements came next day.

Cons: 1st refurb was scuffed up and had several small screen defects.
2nd is clean although a little dark, I'll keep this one.

Other Thoughts: Dell was reluctant to send a 2nd, I had to count defects.
Bought this brand thinking high quality, now I don't know.

3 out of 5 eggsDead at 8 months.

Pros: Good color.

Cons: No display when computer woke up, monitor will not POST.

Other Thoughts: Rev A01 with some backlight bleed and no dead pixels.

Dell phone support was helpful, it took about 30 minutes to complete a service request. They'll send me another monitor, new I hope. After arrival, I need to return the defective using their prepaid shipping label.

5 out of 5 eggsClarity is awsome

Pros: Great monitor! beautiful colors and very bright and vibrant. I do not use it for photo editing or video editing I bought them for gaming. 8ms is high but I personally can not notice an issue. I just bought two more for a triple monitor setup.

Cons: None I am very happy with it.

Other Thoughts: There are several sites with configurations for colors to get it just right. Otherwise buying one of the calibration spiders may be a good idea if you want to make sure you have the color set properly.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I bought this because I'm a stickler for aspect ratio. 16:9 is too narrow for me, but I needed to move on from 4:3. I was just looking to get something in a 16:10 AR that was affordable, but instead I received one of the best monitors I've ever used.

I'm not a huge imageophile or whatever you want to call it, so I can only sum up my experience in layman's terms. Colors are vibrant, clarity is wonderful, and the controls are easy to use, at least when you need to use them. For the most part the monitor sets itself up.

If you do need to do some configuration (which I did, more in the Cons section) then this monitor does what I wish more did: it gives you an actual on screen menu physically located next to the buttons you need to press. Instead of having to try and remember which buttons did what I could simply navigate the menu about as easily as I would with a mouse.

The only other pro I can add is that this has about every input type you'd need for a computer. In particular I was surprised something this new still had a VGA port, which is good for me since I still work with older equipment sometimes.

Cons: The biggest problem I had with the monitor was its Dynamic Contrast mode, which was enabled by default. I'm not quite sure what it was supposed to do, but what it mostly did was make the bright parts of my games SUPER BRIGHT while the dark parts became very hard to see. I quickly disabled it through the aforementioned easy-to-use menu and things became much better.

Some users might not like the lack of HDMI input; indeed I was a little disappointed since my video card has HDMI out and HDMI cables are a bit more sleek than DVI. However, the monitor does have DisplayPort, which is a FAR superior replacement and something I'd much rather have. Besides, if I absolutely have to hook something up HDMI I can just use an HDMI->DVI adapter, though it's not like this thing has speakers.

Other Thoughts: Like every Dell monitor ever, this has the usual USB hub built into the monitor. I'd add my thoughts on that to the review, but I keep forgetting that the USB ports are there!

4 out of 5 eggsGood but not great

Pros: We have half a dozen of these monitors in our office. Newegg's latest price reduction spurred another buy. We are a photography shop, and use these panels as second or third displays for holding palette panels, open documents, etc. The U2412M is getting to be old and is being replaced by the U2415. Expect more screaming deals as the U2412M is phased out.

The U2412M offers excellent viewing angles and color fidelity (after calibration). Black levels are very low, giving superb contrast at useable brightness levels. Five of the displays we own (including the one purchased last week) show very little backlight bleed. The sixth is worse, but still at a comparable level to similarly priced monitors from HP or NEC.

The aspect ratio of the display is 16:10 rather than the more popular 16:9. This gives more useable desktop area for actual work. Unless you use your monitor mostly for watching videos, this is a good thing.

If you use a hardware-based monitor calibration tool, the U2412M supports DDC calibration. All adjustments are carried out automatically in the monitor itself, minimizing banding and other visual artifacts.

Lag is middle of the pack. This likely reflects the age of the design. Lag performance was very good by 2011 standards, not so great in 2015.

Finally, the adjustability of the U2412M is very good with the exception of not going high enough for taller people.

Cons: Out-of-box color and gamma calibration are all over the place. As mentioned above, this isn't an issue if you have a monitor calibration tool available.

The panel in the U2412M is a 6-bit one rather than 8-bits as are found on better quality displays. This leads to some visually jarring transitions if you are editing pictures or videos. This is the main reason that none of our 2412M displays are used for actual editing. Compounding this issue is that backlight uniformity is not a strength of the U2412M. Luminance varies significantly across the screen.

As other reviewers mention, there is no HDMI port. If you have a free DVI or DisplayPort outlet on your video card, this isn't a real problem.

The stand provides excellent adjustment except if you are tall enough to want the screen fairly high off your desk. The maximum height is on the short side.

Other Thoughts: Even at four years after it was introduced, the U2412M remains an excellent overall performer in its price range. It is a comfortable screen to work with. Color accuracy and useable contrast are good, and viewing angles excellent. A 1920x1200 resolution is superior to the 1920x1080 usually found with similarly priced monitors.

You can find sub-$250 monitors that outperform the Dell U2412M in any single area. Besting the combination of features requires more cash.

I would not recommend using the U2412M for critical photo or video editing unless you are on a student budget.

2 out of 5 eggsLasted 6 months

Pros: Looked great and worked great for about 6 months.

Cons: It started having issues where it would switch between on and power saving mode in the middle of games. I check wires and even switched from DVI to HDMI to Displayport wires and it kept doing the same thing. It eventually shut off on me and never came back on.

Other Thoughts: I have the model up from this one and it has worked flawlessly for over 4 years now. No complaints. This one was just made cheap though.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than my work monitor

Pros: 1920 x 1200 resolution
16:10 aspect ratio
reasonably priced compared to other high-end monitors

Cons: no HDMI input
more expensive that low-end consumer monitors

Other Thoughts: I bought this monitor for home. It is better and nicer than the standard 1920 x 1080 resolution Dell Ultrasharp monitors we use at work. I am a programmer, and the additional height makes a huge difference. It also pivots if you want to put it in portrait mode for viewing more lines of code.

4 out of 5 eggsFlat-panel tech still sucks

Pros: 1920x1200 is, unlike every other widescreen resolution besides 2560x1440, a respectable resolution that you can actually scale something to and it not look awful. Panel has good color, usually, and very good viewing angle. I actually have a crappier Dell 1080p 24" panel sitting right next to this one and the viewable angle is dramatically better. Stand is very good and allows you to use the monitor sideways without a lot of effort.

Cons: Despite something like 20 years of development and all the new fangled tech in the world, there's still ghosting at freaking 60fps on this panel. It's not as bad as I've seen, but you're still not getting the image quality that top of the line CRTs were giving you in the late 90s. Furthermore, really dark scenes are not good on this panel. There's a strange effect that looks like the monitor is really reflective or something. Coming out of a fullscreen game that alters the gamma setting will cause a really obvious yellowing to occur. I think it does eventually wear off, but it's unattractive.

No HDMI is slightly annoying.

Other Thoughts: At this point, it's either this monitor or a 2560x1440 monitor. 1440 is whole multiple of 480 and 720, so that's really awesome. At 5/8 the pixels, this monitor is less likely to give you performance fits, though. Pick your poison. Don't pick 1080p.
