Dell u2711 is a tad expensive......so either u2410 OR u2412m. Help me decide :)

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I was set on the u2711 but due to money spending elsewhere, its not the best option anymore so for now im thinking of just getting a 24". Is the u2410 really worth £100 extra over the u2412m? I know the response time on the u2412m is lower but what else would sway you over to the u2410?

Thanks alot!

Personally, I would go with the U2412M. I recently picked up the the U2312HM and it's absolutely stunning. I don't think the £100 difference is worth the U2410. I do know that the newer models have better quality control so you are more likely to receive a unit with zero dead pixels, clouding, backlight bleed, etc. My unit has no issues at all.

Thanks for your reply. I'm leaning towards the u2412m unless anyone can state a good reason not too.

I'm mainly going to be doing photo/video editing and 3D rendering whilst playing BF3 now and again.

Thanks again!

I'd wait till I get the money for a 27". I hate upgrading every year. I end up spending more$. Get the best and chill for 5 years.

lol, thats my way of thinking exactly. I was thinking of getting another monitor later on for a dual monitor setup anyway so in that respect, getting a dell 24" u2410 or u2412m isnt really wasting time. This is another reason for why i want to make sure i get the right monitor, as i want to buy another soonish for a multi monitor setup.

So you're williing to spend between $600 & $1000 for a dual set up. I would've save & get the 27'. I have a 50"tv 1080p. My 8 yr old son thinks it's not hd compare to the monitor. Last year I wanted to get a tripple screen 1920x1200 myself, but after much reading I went for a single u3011. No regrets.

Check out the zr2740w. < $700. You might have to access the OSD via the graphics card menu. Great monitor for gaming. thumb.gif

I have one of the older 23" dell ultrasharps the one before the LED was introduced and by god it's stunning.

This week I received my other 2 dell 23" ultra sharps with LED. The picture clarity and quality is beyond awesome. You will find the same here as well. I highly recommend any of the sizes tongue.gif

27 is impressive because of massive resolution and being able to so much more work.
