Dell E2414H Black 24
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Picked one of these up at the local store when my HDMI adapter died. As a secondary monitor it's not bad. Honestly, a half decent 1080p monitor makes a really good secondary since you can actually do stuff on it. Image quality is good enough for what I use it for (which is basically web browser and nothing else). Good monitor for the price, I suppose.

Dark scenes actually look better than on the U2412M (as long as you're staring straight at the monitor).

Cons: Welp. It's 1080p which, per popularity, is the worst resolution of all time. In comparison to the U2412M, it's easy to see why this monitor costs a benny less. Viewable angle is an embarassment, stand is greatly inferior, no USB hub, no Display Port, almost 2" shorter because of crummy resolution. Etc. Again, you're spending a lot less. Can't complain too much.

Like the Ultrasharp, there's no HDMI. Luckily, if you're forced into the option for whatever reason, the expensive solution of [monitor > DVI adapter > HDMI cable > PC] does work.

Other Thoughts: Would be nice if I could just buy the Dell pivot stand.

Dell UltraSharp U2412M Black IPS Panel 24
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

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.

UtechSmart US-D8000-GM High Precision Laser Gaming Mouse - Avago ADNS-9800 Chipset, 8000 DPI, 9 Programmable Buttons, Weight Tuning Cartridge
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: So I have/had a Trackball Explorer. Obviously very long in the tooth, worn out, and super expensive to replace. Decided I'd bite the bullet and give this thing a trial run to see if it would entertain me.

Well first off, I barely know what to do with 9 buttons. Just having three thumb buttons is more than I really know what to do with...never mind the other 3 auxiliary buttons. Feels crisp enough for me. Maybe a little too fast at times, but I guess it'll be useful for spanning my 4 monitor desktop.

Glowy light is RGB. That's fancy and awesome, even if it is completely useless and a waste of power.

Cons: Yeah, as others have stated Unless you have some kinda 6 monitor eyefinity monster setup, the two higher DPI settings are completely useless. I'm running maybe 25-30% cursor speed on the next to lowest DPI.
