Pros Good Adjustment Functions - Height Adjustment and Pivot
Cons ANTI GLARE COATING!
Dark Color representation
Summary I just received this monitor last week March 2012...I use my computer for graphic/web work and my image reproduction has to look flawless on screen. I bought this monitor because I use a Dell 2408 at work and it great. Unfortunately I cannot say the same for my Dell U2410, first off the start the colors were way off and had to get a collaboration software to correct color which was decent but very poor when reproducing dark grey/black colors as well as reds being too bright almost florescent. I was able to deal with these draw backs but after a few hours I noticed a major flaw when looking at white or light backgrounds which looked very fuzzy or grainy as if a noise filter was added to light colors. After much research I've read that many people also have seen this issue and is do to the Anti Glare Coating that Dell uses on there panels.
After trying to adjust brightness or contrast to try to reduce this grainy effect it was useless. I will be sending the monitor back for a refund this week. As a result I would say that that makes this monitor pretty much useless for the graphic or photo industry. Its quite dissappointing that for the money you pay for this monitor the white/light image quality is terrible do to this AG coating. My regular TN samsung display has better image reproduction then this and it also has a AG coating but I guess its not as thick, to bad that its not an IPS monitor though.
Some specs on the monitor its A07 made in Mexico.
I would say avoid if you are a Designer or Photographer.
Pros Ultra sharp picture, very fast setup, excellent I/O features for the price
Cons Wish the monitor would automatically rotate the display settings on my video card when the monitor is physically rotated.
Summary I would recommend this monitor to any photographer who shoots RAW and needs a precice monitor at a resonable price.
Pros Good reputation. Lot's of bells and whistles. Ergonomic design, sturdy.
Cons Severe color issues - see bottom line.
Summary I have the older version (5+years) of this monitor that is an excellent quality that I use at work. I bought another one for home just a few weeks ago hoping it would be the same. As some people already pointed out - there is no solid color on this monitor - turn your background white, or gray and you will see that there is a slight gradient from green/blue to orange running left to right. Shame on you DELL for shipping this product as if you don't know the issue exists - should not your QA notice something that obvious? I am returning mine.
Don't buy now (11/2010) and wait until reviews about bad color drop or DELL informs on it's site that "mistakes have been made". I don't think I'd buy another dell monitor - seems they went too far on the road of cost cutting.
Pros Plug n' play, non-glare screen, great color
Cons No cons I can think of
Summary I've researched getting a monitor for a two monitor setup for my iMac for months. I read every review, went to Best Buy ten times to look at monitors and LED/LCD tv's. What will connect to my iMac mini-DVI port? Forget LED. The IPS, which is what Apple uses, is excellent. I bought the Apple mini-DVI-D to DVD-D connector for $19.95. I had my fingers crossed. I just plugged in the Monitor and turned on my computer and....everything worked perfectly. The only thing I did was to turn down the brightness a little because it is a very bright screen. With FCP, I enlarged the canvas window to fill the Dell screen to see what would happen. When I play my video in the timeline, I can now really see what my video will look like on my clients big screen. It's amazing. Yes, I recommend this monitor highly. My only regret is that I couldn't afford the U2711. But, this size matches my 24" iMac and it's a huge help.
Pros Great price for an IPS display, I've had it for almost a year now. I do a lot of terminal based text editing on Linux, contrast and all is better than my old high end CRT.
Cons Power button, its placement is in the corner, i.e it IS the corner. Its really easy to bump and turn off the display. The extra inputs are nice, but Dell messed this one up, it is not a quick button press to switch between display inputs
Summary Great display, great price. However, I couldn't use this at work. At work, my flat screen displays(Dell 2001FPs and 2007FPs) are shared between two different computers, one using VGA, one using DVI. I KVM the keyboard and mouse. Those Dell displays all make it simple to switch inputs, a one button press to switch between all the input sources. With this one, you need to go through a little menu, the touch sensitive buttons to do this are a pain. Switching between inputs quickly is not an option.
