Dell UltraSharp U2412M Review


Dell has enjoyed a healthy reputation when it comes to displays in India, and it has been so at least roughly over the past 4 years. There have been several iconic displays offering an abundance of features, along with impressive performance at...

The Dell UltraSharp U2412M, as it turns out is a brilliant monitor. Priced at Rs. 23,000 in India, the U2412M is a tad pricier than some IPS panels out there. There are a few things, however that make this display stand out - excellent performance in...

Dell U2412M LCD Monitor Review: A Flexible, Good-Quality 24-Inch Display


The Dell U2412M did well in our recent roundup of 23- and 24-inch monitors. It offers screen quality that's almost as good as that of the top-ranked HP ZR2440w, for a little less money. Plus, its design is flexible and efficient.

Ergonomically flexible design

Relatively expensive

The U2412M offers very good on-screen performance, multiple input types, a flexible design, and wide viewing angles.

Editor's Choice!

Dell UltraSharp U2412m


As the follow-up to 2009's Dell UltraSharp U2410 , the U2412m has quite a bit to live up to. I expected Dell to stay on its high-end and expensive course it had already plotted for the series. Not surprisingly, I'll admit to being a bit disappointed...

The Dell UltraSharp U2412m has great performance with excellent ergonomic support and a robust and easy-to-navigate OSD with tons of options for customization. It also has five USB ports, and it's currently available for about $350.

HDMI is missing from the connection options, and performance-wise, it's not quite there compared with high-end, pro-grade IPS panels, especially when it comes to viewing angles.

With thoughtful design, great performance, and plenty of OSD features, the Dell UltraSharp U2412 fills its value quotient to the brim.

Dell U2412M


Slimline Dell monitor offers low profile stand

Slimline profile would be great for wall mounting; Good overall performance

Awkward to rotate to portrait orientation

If you’re looking for a monitor with good performance that’s low-maintenance and cheap, the HP S2031 is perfectly suited to that end.Read More...

Best overall monitor for general use


Contrast, color accuracy, adjustability (portrait mode), lED backlight, energy efficient

Color performance falls short of professional-grade monitors, slow response time, no HDMI input

Dell UltraSharp U2412M 24-inch LCD Monitor Review


Dell expands the U series monitors with the new U2412M. We find out what exactly...

The U2412M is the perfect monitor to accompany an already very strong line-up of monitors. It brings with it a higher quality IPS panel, 16:10 resolution, DisplayPort connectivity and a good price point. If you want something bigger than the U22 / U23,...

Dell UltraSharp U2412M


Dell UltraSharp monitors have a reputation for offering solid color performance with a generous, business friendly feature set, and the UltraSharp U2412M lives up to that reputation. Based on In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, this reasonably priced...

Very good color quality. Loaded with features. Affordably priced. Energy Efficient ; Cons: No HDMI port. Lacks auto-pivot support. Small text could be cleaner. Editor Rating: 4.00 ; By John R. Delaney

No HDMI port. Lacks auto-pivot support. Small text could be cleaner. Editor Rating: 4.00 ; By John R. Delaney

The Dell UltraSharp U2412M is a feature-rich 24-inch monitor offering beautiful color reproduction and great off-angle viewing but its dark grayscale performance falls a bit short. Pros: Very good color quality. Loaded with features. Affordably priced....

"Very pleased with my U2412M"


The U2412M replaces my 10 year old Dell 2405FPW monitor, and it looks to me to be just as good. I hesitated to buy the U2412M because I read some reviews complaining of viewing angle and color. I see no problem with viewing angle for my uses. Sure, if...

Great value. Bright, clear display. Full 16:10 rather than 16:9.

I'd like the stand to extend higher -- as high as my old 2405FPW did.

"Excellent Monitor"


Bought this to use at my office and it works much better than the 17" monitor our IT department gave me when I started. I did not notice a sparkling look caused by the anti-glare coating and as an accountant I look at text pretty much all day every day.

-Great image quality

So far, none.
