Most all games support 16:10... 16:10 was the dominant widescreen ratio on computers way before 16:9 came into the picture.


On a side note, I just ordered a U2412M myself from Amazon. Should be here Friday. Was going for one of the Korean monitors, but the recent upturn in problems being reported on this forum and elsewhere talked me out of it. Replacing a Sony FW900 CRT... (aka "The Desk Breaker")

I have the Dell u2412m and I absolutely love it. The colors are amazing and I see 0 ghosting. I play bf3 skyrim and dota 2 the most I love it and would recommend it to anyone looking for A 1900x1200 monitor

This Friday... And yes I will try and remember to post pix when I get it going.

My old FW900 got that name, because it really did once break a desk. The desk always had a slight bend to it with the monitor sitting on it, nothing major though so I always assumed it would be OK. Well weeks later I was woken up one night by a loud crash. Thought someone had busted down a door. Ran into my office to see my desk cracked almost completely in half and one of the arms on my chair broke off as well. Monitor was laying on its side on the floor. Best I can tell is the monitor rolled off on to the chair arm when the desk gave way, breaking it, and then rolled off onto the floor. Monitor survived unscathed.

I have a U2410 which is a bit better than U2412M imo. And I love it.

I tried a Benq 120HZ monitor last week. Yes for games it was awesome. 120 frames smooth and smooth. But color wise it sucked. And unless you were looking at it dead on the color shift on it was pretty bad. Now with that said if you are a hardcore and I mean hardcore gamer then yeah get a 120hz monitor. But if you do other things besides games then the U2412M or and IPS monitor really is the best of both worlds really. Its a good all around monitor. I've seen them now for like $269 at times which is a steal...

I also have a Dell U2412M A03 revision, my question is does anyone know what the game mode present mode do? I'm conflicted whether or not to leave it at standard or game mode. I thought it changes hue and saturation but those values stay the same when I check them.

It turns dynamic contrast on and changes the color settings - even if they OSD doesn't reflect it. I just leave mine on standard.

rename the thread dell u2421m vs 120hz vs korean monitors. and hope to get an opinion from someone or ppl who have used all these monitors.

my personal opinion for my type of computer use would recommend the korean monitors. i'm not much of a gamer so i'd go to the real estate. but i've never tried a 120hz monitor tojudge them. i've only used ips 2560x1600max monitors.

if 120hz monitors cost too much in your country you might have to settle for the u2412m's or the korean monitors.
