Do you have a hardware calibrator?
Monitors in general will have some variance in the quality of their image; that is, there is some variance in contrast, tinting, temperature, backlight bleed, etc from monitor to monitor. This is normal. The U2412m isn't factory calibrated, so you have no assurance it'll be the same. Differences between my two U2311h drove me nuts, so I went and bought myself a hardware calibration tool (i1D2) to calibrate the two monitors so they looked the same.
