Is it worth $80 to get the Dell Ultrasharp U2412M over the U2311H? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Have you thought about looking at Dell's outlet? I got 2 24" monitors from them for around $360 and they are both in excellent shape.

Thanks for the help. Yeah, I'm constantly looking at Dell Outlet, but if they don't get an Ultrasharp up there soon, I'm going to have to order one new (and I have a 10% off coupon that expires September 1st if I can't get a better deal from phone support).

I own the u2412m and have had no big issues but I have not had a chance to play a fps on it yet. another thing that doesn't really change image quality but does help with power and heat is the u2412m has an led backlit screen.

I will have to try a fps tonight to see how the results are.

The 2012 lineup should be coming out in the fall or winter. TFTCentral reported a VA panel.

That is for the Professional line, not the Ultrasharp models.

looks like they added led backlighting over the previous model. so the 24" model just has the extra size and resolution going for it.

Thanks everyone for the help, and i just purchased the U2410 for 479 + tax = 511. The $120 off was a big motivator,as well as the HDMI so I can connect my Xbox and play that on the amazing ultrasharp screen. Also, I started a different thread asking about the differences between ccfl and led backlighting and it seemed that the differences weren't enough to really get worried about (with ccfl being a slight winner possibly). Again,thanks for your help picking a monitor that I hope will last me through college.

What? Really?

Edit: Holy crap! It's on the site! Here.

I wish Dell would make 16:10 models. I'm just wondering if they'll make a U2412H (I'm aware about the U2412M).
