The U2410 is an overall better monitor (better color gamut, better panel). The only thing the ZR24W has over the U2410 is a lower input lag, and ease of use (the HP may look better if you don't bother to calibrate). After calibration, though, the Dell is a clear winner.

If You prefer quality over quantity then You should get Eizo CG241W-BK or Eizo CG223W-BK.

Not to be an a$$ or anything like that but how exactly do you back that up? And isn't color gamut depending on personal preference/what you use the monitor for? Bigger color gamut doesnt necessarily make the monitor better than a standard color gamut. And isn't the Dell factory calibrated? And how does the HP look BETTER if you DONT calibrate it?

Reviews. Websites such as TFT Central give especially in-depth reviews on monitors.

Here's a review of the Dell U2410.
Here's a review of the HP ZR24W.
Here's a comparison of the two (and the HP HP LP2475W).

Why wouldn't you want a monitor that displays a larger range of colours?
Granted, colour gamut isn't everything. But the Dell U2410 is an overall well-rounded monitor, with an larger colour gamut to boot.

Every monitor is factory calibrated...

If you compare the two monitors, factory calibrated, the HP will look better. Since it doesn't have the extended colour gamut of the U2410, it's sRGB emulation will be much more accurate out of the box. Once you calibrate, however, the sRGB emulation becomes just as accurate as that of the HP, and it's extended colour gamut really begins to shine.

And here's a couple quotes from our very own mod, Chunky_Chimp:

However, the ZR24W focuses its strengths behind lower input lag and standard color gamut (74% or so, which covers all of what we normally use) and the U2410 focuses on image quality and extended gamut (96%; great for professional photo and video editing). The ZR24W also has more accurate colors out of the box, while the U2410 requires some tinkering to make it look really nice.

In my opinion, if the OP has the money to spend (which it appears he does), he should get the U2410. If he doesn't, the ZR24W would be a fine choice, although he shouldn't expect all the extra features that make the U2410 stand out.
