    me thinks this thread title needs to be changed to Professor Farnsworth's catch phrase, in his voice.

    TFTCentral.co.uk writes that the U2412HM has just turned up on Dell's US site. Price is USD 399. Could be cheaper IMHO.

    All is pretty much as we feared (hoped? :))...

    For 100$ more, I would GLADLY take the U2410 over the U2412

    but 2412 has bigger number, and is a LED monitor!

    all the stuff people are told they should want.

    For 100$ more, I would GLADLY do my best in getting the superior U2410.
    If the monitor was 300$, then I could understand (budget 16:10 for those you really want 16:10 on top of anything, and IPS panel)

    what does the M stand for in the name, U2412M? is the M what makes this monitor inferior to the U2410? could Dell, by chance, release a U2412 that is actually a true successor to the U2410?

    As far as has been gleaned the 'M' denotes LED backlighting whereas the 'H' denotes 16:9 aspect ratio. As you can see, the U2410, thankfully, has neither. :)

    Everything is possible, but I highly doubt it. Dell put traces month ago about the U2412MH in their web site, like in the drive page. Right now, as we speak, there is no trace of a U2411, or U2412 or U2413...

    thank you, i figured that is what it meant. just wasn't positive.

    that is too bad. well, here is to hoping that the U2410 comes down in price enough for me to splurge on one or two.

    Is Dell u2410 8-bit module with 10-bit receiver? Also reading hardware canucks review they seem to be more on PA46Q side.
