24" IPS - Dell u2412m or HP ZR2440w ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
After setting up some u2412m at work and confirming my tablet pc did 1920x1200 with hdmi to dvi adapter i was ready to order one.

The tablet spec says just 1080p over hdmi so I was happy to cross out those 1080p monitors.

The problem with the dell is connections, or lack of since the monitor would function as a "hub" to just connect different devices like a pc and android tablet with hdmi, notebook with dvi-d and maybe the ps3.

The main issue with dell was lack of hdmi.

Just before ordering i got a tip about HP ZR2440w, that it could be a better "allrounder" for me regards to ps3 and audio with hdmi.

Problem is that i have not tested it, dont know if i could get 1920x1200 from my tablet pc with hdmi, or hdmi-dvi adapter. It worked on the dell, but dont know that much about monitors. My last one was a 14" crt before moving to notebooks and random work monitors.

The ZR2440W is 30% more expensive, but dont know how the picture\quality compares to the dell.

ASUS PA248Q has the HDMI connection you need and 1:1 pixel mapping for the console. About $20 more than the Dell.

I did order the ZR2440w, i looked at the PA248Q and its around 25% more expensive than the HP and close to 50% more than my initial budget for the u2412m.

The PA248Q looks better with usb3 and vga connections, but have to stop somewhere before i end up with U2711.

No matter what it is, headphones or led tv`s, its always just 25% more for soething better.

I take it you're not in the US. The HP is substantially more expensive here and the PA248Q is only slightly more than the Dell.

Got my ZR2440w and it looks pretty good at first start, maybe some adjustments or try the cd that came with it. Have two laptops + android tablet connected with a hdmi switch, and media pc with dvi.

Don`t know why my pc manufacturer stated 1080p max with hdmi, it does 1920x1200 just fine with audio out.

There's hp software for the monitor, display assistant. For me this monitor has been perfect. Uniform form light and no bleeding.
