i now have a A03 using it right now. and a A02 havent plugged it in yet.
this review wont be deep. i'm only on day 2. out the box the u2412m is nice and light which is very good for me for having them on aftermarket mounts. i havent even tried it on its stand. i can try it on it's stand to test whether its fit for sale then get rid of it.
picture wise, out the box, this u2412mb seems to have a bluish tint. it has better whites than all my monitors; the zr30w included. the zr30w has noticeably dirty whites this u2412mb doesn't.
text sharpness is about the same as the zr30w. nothing close to "ultra sharp" but acceptible. it's not better than the TN panels. i can pick out the text pixels on the u2412mb compared v7 monitor. input lag compared to the TN panels is acceptible or near the same... my test was similar to this.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOGHUBakFoo
with a black desktop backgroun,d the 2 TN panels have obvious leaks at the bottom. the zr30w, u2412mb and lp2465 don't. the lp2465 even though it has atrocious input lag, it's the king of black. the u2412mb comes in as the king of whites, king of power consumption and and king of lightweight. and king of bezels.
i decided to go with the u2412m(b) over the koreans because of quality control and the guys at dell call me every night to sing me a song of my choice. it'd be nice to have 2560x1440 but it'd be a while til i got the koreans at a price i got these u2412mb's for.
my tests aren't scientific and are subject to change as i get used to the monitor. for now, i'm just pointing out the obvious...Edited by Remix65 - 12/14/12 at 7:29pm
