Dell computer monitor shootout

By: Jack D'Ardenne

We recently received two computer monitors from Dell to demo for potential use in the new MPS lab: the UltraSharp LED U2412M and the UltraSharp U2410.  We were looking for something somewhat comparable to the NEC PA241W-BK but a little less expensive.  The Dell U2410 is rated as a higher quality monitor than the U2412M and offers a few more bells and whistles like wide color gamut, more video inputs and an SD card reader.  We found both monitors offered very good image quality, and after doing a side by side comparison the Dell U2412M looked a bit better with its default settings. However, after calibrating the monitors using Xrite’s eye-one display2 colorimeter, we the U2410 had better image.  We currently have these monitors set up in the OIT media lab.  If you would like to come by and check them out please let me know.
