Good price - I may have to pick one of these things up. I have what I believe is the older version (U2410) and have been wanting a 2nd one.

The U2410 has better color accuracy as I understand it, the 2412 is meant to be an eIPS panel that only has 6-bit color I believe?

Correct me if I am wrong here, and if anyone has seen the two is the price diff for the 2410 worth it?

The "older" 2410 is a much better monitor.

The cheaper ones are less color depth it seems. The u2410 is really bad for text though but it's great for image and video.

That would explain how it's so much less expensive than the 2410. Yea ... it was the color accuracy that I fell in love with on this monitor.

I'm sitting here and trying to sort out what's bad about the text on this display but I'm coming up empty.

There's a lot of color bleed on text (Black text on white backgrounds or white text on black backgrounds). I have seen this on 3 different U2410 monitors that were all revision 5 monitors (A05). And no, this is not the tinting issue that the early revisions faced.

Mine is an revision 5 as well with an October 2011 manufacturing date. Per Dell, the color bleed falls within OEM spec of their panel supplier and they will not fix it as, per them, nothing is wrong with it.

Hmmm. I guess I'm just not seeing it. I've tried different sizes of text, and sitting closer & further away. I can't get it to look like anything other than crisp black text on a white background.

How do you tell what revision monitor you have?
