Dell Professional P2213 Black 22
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The picture is nice a bright and it has plenty of input options. The adjustable height is very nice.

Cons: This monitor has extremely bad color accuracy and contrast. The contrast is so high you can't see a lot of detail in white scenes, and adjusting it down still doesn't bring all the detail back. Unless you have it next to a high end monitor like I do, you'd probably never even notice. If this will be your only monitor it isn't going to look as bad as I'm making it sound.

Other Thoughts: I have calibrated this screen using a X-Rite i1 Display Pro. I highly recommend tweaking the settings to what I've listed below. The colors will still be off, but your grays will be near perfect. Mine is next to a Dell U2412M, which is VERY nice. It took very little effort to get a good calibration, and it displays far more detail in every kind of scene. The styling of the two matches perfectly. If not for space constraints I would have bought another U2412.

Sony Optiarc 24X DVD Burner, Bulk Package 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model AD-7280S-0B
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have purchased close to 50 of these drives and not a single one has been problematic. They are quick to read discs and look great in a business environment.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I bought a Sony CD-ROM about 11 years ago and it was a horrible device. They are much better now than they used to be.

Dell UltraSharp U2412M Black IPS Panel 24
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Excellent color consistency, good color accuracy, no input lag, no ghosting, very nice menu system. If you're coming from a TN panel and need something better but don't want to spend a fortune, this is the monitor for you. Otherwise, read on.

Cons: The backlighting! The backlight on this monitor is so bad I'm considering returning it. It's like looking at a cheap TN panel. The right side top and bottom corners have significant bleed through and overall blacks are more gray than anything. For $300 and being IPS, I expected far more than this.

Other Thoughts: Maybe its worth noting that I'm coming from a 24" HP LP2465 IPS screen. It's several years old with a CCFL backlight but the blacks are the darkest I've ever seen and there is no backlight bleeding whatsoever. The color saturation is better than the U2412M also. If not for the unbearable input lag I'd still be using it. Due to its age the corners are starting to yellow, but I'd take that any day over the backlight problems of the Dell. I give it 4 eggs because the backlight is truly the ONLY complaint I have about this screen.
