Dell u2410 vs Dell u2412M

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm pretty sure the Dell u2410 is better than the u2412M, but I'm looking at probably 350 shipped for the u2410 and 265 shipped for the u2412M.

How large of a difference is the u2410 from the u2412M? Is it worth the 85ish dollars more to buy the 2410? What kind of problems other than backlight bleeding and glow do these IPS monitors suffer from?

I know IPS is "amazing" but compared to a Samsung 2333SW, how much better will these monitors be in comparison? How will these compare to a Super LCD screen on my phone?

Is the u2412M a good price at 265 shipped?

Anywhere I could buy the u2410 cheaper than 350 new?

Main difference is the u2412 is led and will weigh a bit lighter then the u2410 since its LCD. Resolution and response rate is identical I believe, can't remember of the top of my head.

If you want accurate colors go with the 2410, since it's use is geared towards designers that need accurate colors. The u2412 is not a replacement to the u2410, just a lower priced 24" ultra sharp with led. I think you would be happy with either monitor.

I really don't know the difference up in person, but some things that I've read are that the U2410 is slightly sharper, feels a lot better made and more expensive, and that the U2410 has touch sensitive buttons, while the U2412 has cheap feeling plastic switch buttons.

The only thing I can really add from my knowledge is that my U2410 looks absolutely awesome and I don't think you can make a wrong choice between the two monitors biggrin.gif.

U2410 is much better. In short U2412M is a cheap and low quality version of U2410.

cheaper panel
cheaper materials
cheaper components
cheaper quality control

It all depends what you want.

I haven't seen a Dell U2410 but I've played around with its twin brother, the Asus PA246Q which uses the exact same panel and electronics.

The main differences in terms of display characteristics are as follows:

The LED back-light in the U2412M means that it uses a bit less power, and reaches full brightness faster, albeit it has a bit more of a dominant blue that needs to be adjusted in the OSD.

It'll take the U2410 about 15 minutes to reach full brightness versus about two minutes for the U2412M. LED back-lights usually last longer than CCFL back-lights, though it's not usually a problem unless you want to keep the monitor for 4 -5 years. Basically back-lights lose brightness over time. The LED back-light will lose brightness more slowly and will likely not change in color, whereas old CCFL based screens show a reddish tint to white after many years.

The U2412M is probably a bit better for higher-speed gaming due to less input lag and slightly better pixel response. The U2410 can be low input lag in game mode, but most people say the game mode is hideous. Alternatively there is a trick to get a good display mode like sRGB and game mode together that I posted a while back for "Princess Garnet". This gives you lower input lag of game mode and better image from sRGB or Adobe RGB mode.

The U2410 has full SD card/Compact Flash slots, and more inputs like HDMI, Component and Composite, while the U2412M only has VGA, DVI, DisplayPort. Both have USB hubs too.

the U2410 is much better with consoles and Blu-Ray Players, as it supports proper 16:9 aspect ratio presentation while the U2412M is limited to 16:10, 4:3 and 5:4 programmed ratios. It also has different gamma settings and two factory color calibrated modes: sRGB and Adobe RGB color. It supports wide gamut whereas the U2412M is only sRGB gamut which is mostly only important to photographers shooting raw or Adobe RGB images.

The U2412M has better black levels and contrast, but the U2410 has slightly better viewing angles and the IPS glow is blue from one side and silver from the other, whereas the U2412M is silver from any off-angle.

Either one is a good screen. If you don't need the extra features of the U2410 like extra inputs, SD/Compact Flash slots, and wide gamut, save your cash and go for U2412M. If you do, then the U2410 should be the better choice.

U2412M uses W-LED, U2410 uses CCFL. U2412M is a 6-bit + dithering (I don't know if this is the correct term) which looks like 8-bit but is not, U2410 is true 8-bit. U2410 has more connectivity options (such as component and I think a card reader as well), U2412M has less and IIRC no card reader. Just go check the tftcentral.co.uk review.

As mentioned above by 10e, U2412M has better inputlag. Also, you don't need true 8-bit colors for gaming, 6+2 is enough. I would pick the U2412M if gaming is your only desire when looking for a new display. Although there are better suited panels for gaming than these two.

EDIT: Just found this topic. Please follow it instead.
