Full Version: New Monitor
Atomic 3.0 > The Box > Audio & Display
Hi all,

I have been looking at a new LED Monitor.
I came across this one & wondered if it truely was as good as all that.

Dell U2412M UltraSharp 24 Monitor. Priced @ $399, BUT down to $279 until Oct 31st.

IPS, make we want it, for the price.
8ms responce time, makes me wonder.... is it good enough.

I am mostly going to play games with it, BF3... hopefully. 8)
$250 would be my budget, but this 24" IPS may prompt me to spend a few extra $$.
All alternatives appreciated.

Thoughts please.

If it is just for games? maybe go the faster non IPS screens... (cant think of the name of them TF ? )

They are cheaper alot faster draw times and higher refresh rates.

This is the same problem i had deciding. in the end i wanted good image quality (better color, view angle and resoloution) over higher speed.

8ms is not exactly slow though. from memory a few years ago when they first came out it was a bit of a issue....and i think from memory 12ms and above was notiable diffrence. prehaps others can share some more light on this.

Harmonic Cacophony
Oh nice, I was looking at these because they are 16:10 1200p, and IPS. For $280? I may have to get one, and then a second one later down the track. I can't really justify two at once. But having two of these will probably make my 1200p TN panel look like crap!
im thinking of going back to a 16:10 screen, those dells do look good.
Still pulling my hair out... 8(

The deal is a good one for IPS.... but is 8ms going to make the games suffer?
Yes, mainly games.

I have also spotted this one:

ASUS ML239H 23in IPS Widescreen LED Monitor
Resolution - 1920x1080
Response time 5ms.

IPS & 5ms.
May be my choice..... maybe.
Patience I have.
i used to play games on a 12ms 19inch no problem, i doubt that youd really notice the difference between 5ms and 8ms, plenty of other people dont seem to care

I will check it out a bit more.

Thanks twents.
Have had a little look online at this monitor, and it looks like its fast enough, just has tinting issues as seen around the 5 min mark of
Dell UltraSharp U2412M 24 IPS Monitor Review

According to this review, after you calibrate the colour temperatures on the U2412M it should be a great screen. If i did not already have a 30" Dell 3008 I would buy 3 of these right now.

ive got a U2711 and its great and i have not calibrated it.

..i dont own a calibrator.
I have a DellU2410, my first IPS and I wont be going back in a hurry.
This model is 6ms and has been great for games, I cant see 2ms making that much difference.
Colours, viewing angle both great. Mine is not led back lit either.
This is my third dell monitor and I have always been happy.
Personally, for the price I think you will be well chuffed.
Was going to post thesame question actually. I was looking at the U2412M, but I am now looking at the Ultrasharp U2410 at the moment and i'm almost ready to pull the trigger! I have a ASUS VW246H at the moment and want to move up to something of better quality and it will also leave the 2nd monitor as a second screen.
You could try this for $215
23 Dell UltraSharp U2312HM
E-value Code: U14U2312HMAU
Dell Ultrasharp U2312HM

You wont be disappointed smakme7757 especially if you do colour critical work.
Got the U2410 for $487 inc GST with 3 year warrenty wish I got two for that price.
Pays to wait for a deal sometimes.
