You can get an IPS for less then 200. It will give similar colours to Apples' lower end IPS monitors.

This is the most ignorant statement I've heard. It makes no sense because of FOV scaling, and because the display doesn't fill your entire vision, and is thus false.

I thought you would be the kind that does not repeat a proven false argument

*ALL monitors are progressive, why put "1200p", etc.? There's no point other than marketing.
This.

Someone change the title to 1920x1200. I would never buy 16:9 again for computer use.
Shhhhh!

Not impressed. There's a reason this monitor is only $400 as opposed to the U2410. Glad they stuck with 16:10, but for people who like brightness, this monitor is an average 300c/d
as opposed to the U2410's 400c/d. (EDIT: I didn't see the part where the 2412M is LED. That may account for the difference, but I stand by my original conclusion)

Response rate? 6ms on the 2410, 8ms on the 2412M.

Ironically, the 2412M boasts of their "2 million dynamic contrast" but the "typical" contrast is the same: 1000:1.

In the color gamut category, the 2412M is a standard-gamut monitor whereas the 2410 is wide-gamut AdobeRGB. I know some people prefer standard gamut and I'm probably wrong in this area, but if SRGB emulation is available, does the wide-gamut not allow for richer color in games for example (when using AdobeRGB setting). Due to limited knowledge I'll reserve judgment.

Most damning of all to me is the lack of features. Yes, the 2412M has VGA/DVI/Displayport and 2 USB ports. Here's what you're missing from the 2410: HDMI, Component, Composite, and the CARD READER. Believe it or not it's easy to find a use for all those ports, especially when the color (and pixel pitch) on your monitor is so much better than your TV. Playing Xbox on my U2410 is a real treat. But good luck on your 2412M now that HDMI to Displayport cables are illegal.

Overall looking at the specifications pages from Dell I cannot recommend this monitor. I love my U2410 and my pink/green tint is absolutely minimal on a white screen (I've heard flashing to A02 works as well) The color is rich and deep and with the card reader and connectivity options, is totally worth the price of admission. As a gadget enthusiast I would have been the first in line to buy this monitor, but it looks like Dell blew it with this one.

PS: I usually like engadget but WOW did they ever fail on this one.

Why? We don't have to cover for the article's mistakes... they'll catch their mistake soon enough, or if they don't, we'll forget about it in about that amount of time.

I saw this but for the price you save over a 2410 I can live with it.

A 60hz monitor can max colour transition of 16.7ms. You won't benefit any more from a higher refresh. Typically, you notice less ghosting with a lower response time rate only due to some monitors being complete garbage shifting between the red, greens, and blues or the lack of uniform colour transition as manufacturers release "averages" for their response times.

You actually care for such features? The VGA or DVI-D to HDMI will work for consoles. A card reader? Don't you have one in your PC already?

I can see where it will benefit, but a usb card reader will fill that gap.
