Help me upgrade from XL2410T

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello fellow overclockers,

Today is the day I decided to pass on this monitor, bad colours, impossible to set correct gamma, out of the box blue tint, not to mention quite noticable ghosting, bugged "Instant mode" and dead pixel that I can't RMA because of bad benq warranty. I give up on this gaming bull**** gimmicks, not worth that much money.
I'm looking for a 23,x - 24' monitor with amazing to perfect colour. Good enough responsiveness and input lag. I don't care about 120Hz anymore.

I was thinking about Dell P2414H. Would be greatful for any advice.

You should get this instead. Cheaper and better.

Newer version. More expensive and it is 16:10.

I own the Dell U2414H and this is a short pros/cons list:

Pros:
Slim bezels so great for multi-monitor setups
Factory calibrated sRGB preset with delta errors below 3
IPS so great viewing angles and great colour reproduction
The stand allows swivel and tilt and you can switch between portrait and landscape modes
Uses about 20W max brightness and about 8W at 35% brightness
You can turn the power button LED off whilst the monitor is on

Cons:
DisplayPort is so finicky that's it's beyond useless
Avoiding DisplayPort leaves only 2 HDMI inputs
No backwards compatibility, e.g. no D-Sub or DVI inputs
Touch sensitive controls are a bit awkward to use
Despite being factory calibrated, the screens are slightly different in tint/colour to one another - noticeable with mutli-monitor setup
IPS panel so blacks are more grey/blue - noticeable in dark viewing conditions

Some observations:
Has stereo out to carry audio from HDMI or DisplayPort to speakers - seems a bit useless
Haven't noticed any ghosting or lag and I've used a 1ms TN in the past (60Hz)
Supports YPbPr and RGB colour formats
Can rotate the OSD in menu - useful if you rotate the monitor

Some say it suffers from serious inconsistent backlight.

Are you referring to backlight uniformity? If so, mine is great, although it's something to expect when buying LED backlit displays.

I found people still complaining about it.

No other suggestions? Is U2414H my best shot?

Can someone say something about lack of DVI port? Kinda bad it doesn't have it.
