Dell UltraSharp U2412M - Page 3

post #21 of 239
I have 2 of these screens and really love them. They are awesome screens as others have said, my only complaint is that they don't come in 3 packs for a cheaper price lol. Just about to get my 3rd one in the next couple weeks, cant wait.

You will love this screen, great buy.

I'm currently contemplating on whether I should pick up the U2412M. I recently bought myself an XL2420T but ended up sending it back as the colors were god awful even after I calibrated it. In terms of input lag, when it comes to gaming, would an average player like myself notice a difference between an IPS and that of a 2ms TN panel? Would there also be a major difference in Blu Ray's on an IPS vs a TN?

Some of the IPS monitors have extremely low input lag, because like most TN monitors, they don't really have any electronics inside to process the signal. Response time is of course not going to be as good as decent TN models. In fact a lot of the eIPS stuff has lower input lag than the fast 120 Hz gaming monitors.

However, some TN monitors have really bad reverse ghosting, so in effect the pixel responsiveness really is worse than some properly-overdriven IPS monitors.

You can see the input lag and pixel responsiveness for the U2412HM here (note some overshoot there, so some reverse ghosting...but not a terrible amount):

check around vs. BenQ XL2420T (typical fast 120 Hz TN) and an LG IPS235V (slower less-aggressive IPS)

Ultrasharps have very low input lag, particularly the U2312HM. It is by far the best monitor I have ever used for anything, gaming included.

Good purchase ITS OVER 9000!. I just picked up 2 of these myself. My company gets a discount through Dell.com, so I pulled the trigger. I had just bought 2 HP 2711x, but, at the right price for a better monitor IMO, and an IPS at that, switching those out for the Dells as well worth it. .Luckily I had a friend in the market for a new 27 inch monitor, so he bought one of those off of me. biggrin.gif

I will have to get used to the AG, seeing as I have no desire to attempt its removal at this point. That may change in the future, but for now, I am happy .

Again, good choice. thumb.gif

They're actually slashing the price of U2412M all over, so I wouldn't be surprised to see if the prices dropped a bit lower than this. They are going for ~$280 at the local Dell stores here in HK. One thing to keep in mind is that it does not support HDMI, so that might be something to consider if there are other peripherals that you want to input from.

True, it does not, however since the monitor does not have built in speakers, the need for HDMI is not there. The DVI will produce the same picture as the HDMI will, there is just no sound support through the DVI.
