Score! Got an Ultrasharp for $200 off :D - Page 2

post #11 of 29
Wow, never knew these were that pricey (compared to my Syncmaster 2333). All the computers in the studios at school have these monitors, so it's good to see that the school is spending some money wink.gif

Seems like a nice price, though. Good find thumb.gif

For most peoples' uses, the newer U2412M is better since it has significantly better contrast ratio, better out-of-box colors, and a little better input lag and arguably responsiveness.
Or do you need a wide gamut monitor for whatever reason?
I use custom color on mine because it's basically all I have. The sRGB modes have dithering issues because I have a revision A00 panel, and the rest (Standard, Multimedia, Game, Cool, Warm, etc.) all have Pink tinting. Oddly the RGB modes and custom color don't. I'm not sure why, but whatever. I'd probably not use those modes anyway, and I got custom color looking fairly nice for my taste. Things may be off from other monitors, but I disabled the color profile shenanigans and all to at least make various programs show the same colors; the inconsistency when that was happening bothered me more than wide gamut naturally making stuff look different.

Are you sure it's a UltraSharp U2410s and not some other UltraSharps? That'd be odd if a school is indeed getting them (unless they're using them for graphics work).

I'm almost certain they are. I'm an architecture major, so we do a lot of graphic design, renderings and CAD work on them. I'll check today while I'm in class smile.gif

The U2412M is a 6-bit e-IPS panel with an LED backlight. The U2410 is an 8-bit H-IPS with CCFLs and a polarizing filter.

In other words, the U2410 is like a smaller U3011, while the U2412M is like a larger U2311h.

Got the monitor today and it just fails to meet my expectations, going to try and flip it or at least break even.

The touch controls are way to unresponsive and the screen size is just to small compared to my HP 2711x that I'm coming from.

It's a smaller monitor; what did you expect?

The touch buttons seem fine for me. I'm not sure if some aren't as reactive as they should be, or if it's down to some people not liking the force required to get them to respond (which isn't a lot, really; you'd probably be using more to press a physical button anyway). Really light (and I mean really light) taps might not register, but the rest do for me.

Edit: I just checked and noticed that the HP 2711x is a 1920 x 1080 monitor, not a 2560 x 1440 like I first thought. In that case, yes, it's smaller, but it'll be sharper and have more resolution. If you prefer size, why'd you go down?

I'm surprised it wasn't about the AG coating (that's one of my complaints) or response (of the panel itself) or colors or something though. Maybe the colors look off because it has the tinting issue? Maybe the wide gamut and AG aren't making the colors and overall look as good as you expected? Some people don't like these things and a TN panels works fine for them. If that's the case, stick with your HP and enjoy it; you'll be far happier. That's what matters.

What year/revision is it (there's a tab that slides out near the card reader and USB ports with the revision, date, serial number, place of assembly, and some other information).

How used is it? You can check the service menu to find out. To do so, turn the monitor off. Hold the second and and forth buttons, and leave the first, third, and fifth uncovered. Turn the monitor on. When all the LEDs light up, press the first (top) button and it should show, showing the backlight hours and other stuff. This'll tell you how used it's been. Once you're done, hit that same button to close out the service menu. You'll want to turn it off and then on again afterwards.
