About the differences between the U2410 and the U2412M: the U2410 is the higher-end of the two having a better panel (8 bit + 2 bit Advanced Frame Rate Control) while the U2412M uses a 6 bit + 2 bit A-FRC panel. The difference? The U2410 can do 16.7 million distinct colours and up to 1 billion dithered, while the U2412M can do 262.144 and up to 16.2 million dithered. Both use IPS panels, though and in use the difference is hardly noticable unless you do a lot of Photoshop work and need Adobe RGB and similar colour spaces. Even though the U2410 is sexier I'd say the U2412M is the better deal.
