Seems like a downgrade from the U2410 though :\ I believe the U2412M uses a 6 bit e-IPS panel vs the 8 bit H-IPS panel in the U2410

Correct. This new monitor is a downgrade. It's now on the same level as the U2311h and U2211h.

Most definitely a downgrade from 2410.

I don't understand why Dell is using a 6-bit panel, or why it's priced like it is...this monitor is clearly competing with the HP ZR24w, which has an 8-bit panel and costs the same.

The U2410 had a street price of $425-450, not the $600 it was originally tagged at. This screen will be going for $280 within a month or so of launch, an appropriate level for a 6-bit IPS panel and well below the HP.

FYI, price is $299.25 on my premier page, so my estimate of $280 on sale on the retail site is probably about right.

So...... for those looking for an IPS monitor, althought a 6-bit device, it seems it's not a bad monitor for what it would deliver. I guess a better question might be (now that it's October) what would be a competing model with a better feature set? My motivation here is a 7 year old Dell PC which will be replaced soon, and Dell offers the U2412M as one of the monitor options.
