The Dell UltraSharp U2412M does indeed live up to its name. The sharpness of the display along with its clarity are easily one of its most sought after aspects. Indeed, the key element that makes the Dell U2412M so attractive is the fact that it has a high quality IPS panel rather than the more conventional TN panel. The difference between the two? A significant improvement in visual quality at the expense of negligible response time and refresh rates.
Often, you’ll hear gamers claiming that the latest monitors with the highest refresh rates and the fastest response time have given them an edge to win over their opponents. Perhaps it would make a slight difference if you’re a professional gamer and you’re competing in an FPS match like CounterStrike or Call of Duty but these only apply in such limited circumstances. If you’re an average gamer like myself, you’d be able to enjoy a much more pleasant and enjoyable experience from the enhanced visuals that an IPS panel would provide you with.
What exactly are these advantages in terms of the Dell U2412M’s visual quality? First of all, it has great viewing angles. This means that there is little to no deviation in colour contrast when the display is viewed from the sides or the top of the screen. This is important so that regardless of how you’re positioned in front of the monitor, the colour and clarity of the display will always be consistent. Plus, the improvement in clarity and colour accuracy that an IPS panel provides over and above that of a TN panel is tremendous.
In terms of this aspect, the monitor comes with 4 x USB ports, 1 x DVI, 1 x VGA and 1 x DisplayPort. Two of the USB ports are conveniently located at the left side of the monitor for easy accessibility while the other ports are placed at the back of the monitor. As for its display menu, it can be accessed via 4 buttons at the bottom right area of its bezel facing forwards.
It has all 3 height, tilt and pivot adjustability options which means that you no longer have to stack it on top of books like some of the older monitor displays and you could also use it in the portrait mode if you wish.
All in all, this monitor is a powerhouse and will be excellent for both gaming and general purposes. If you’re still not convinced, you might want to take note of the fact that the Dell UltraSharp U2412M has an astounding 4.5/5 rating in Amazon out of a total of 470 reviews.
At the price of R3664.58 Incl VAT, you’ll be hard pressed to find any other 24″ monitor that has an IPS panel of this quality.
