Dell IPS

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I wanna upgrade my old 2007wfp to a 23"+ IPS. I have some dead pixels that are bothering me really bad, plus I'd like to go to something above 1650x1080. I'm going to get like a 10-15% discount through Dell, and I'm trying to decide which to buy. The 2412m is very appealing price wise, and I don't know enough about the different models to justify to myself buying any of them. Is there any reason I should switch to one of the others they sell, or would you guys suggest the 2412?

Both have great reviews. I'm getting a 23inch Ultrasharp soon.

I would really go for the 2412m if you like the monitor. I would pick that over the 23" Dell because I like the 16:10 personally. The 2412m is slightly smaller in terms of color representation when compared to the 2410 but not needed when only used for gaming or general use. It is one hell of a monitor and with your discount I think you would like it very much.thumb.gif

Bought it, shipped it 2 business days, missed shipment today. So pissed. Better luck tomorrow hopefully. Can't wait to get it working. Debating an EVGA 570 then using the step up program when Kepler releases.

You should be happy with it. I have the U2312HM and I think its fantastic. The one thing to note though is that the U2412HM is an e-IPS panel, which means its 6 bit instead of 8 bit, so you're sacrificing a bit of color compared to your old 2007WFP. The colors are still accurate, but you might notice a bit of banding in gradients. Less than a TN panel, but still more than an H-IPS.

The fact that the 2412 dithers the last two bits isn't the reason it has a more narrow color gamut than the 2410. The reason lies in the backlighting (LED vs CCFL).

I would say the biggest downside of a e-IPS panel is that there are some contrasts shifts (but still no real color shifts) at extreme angles.

So my 2007wfp was a pretty good monitor for its time? I didn't research the differences between mine and the 2412. Should be here in the next hour and I guess I'll get a eye full of it.

What? That couldn't be further from the truth. Backlighting has absolutely nothing to do with color accuracy. A well calibrated monitor will have accurate color regardless of the backlighting. The only real difference is that you get some banding in gradients that you wouldn't from an H-IPS panel.

Elmo was apparently referring to gamut, in which case he would be somewhat correct. w-LED backlighting is restricted to ~sRGB color space, while CCFL can extend a fair bit further. RGB-LED backlighting can extend even further. But only handful of very expensive screens have that. tongue.gif Color accuracy is another issue.
