    The U2412M offers very good on-screen performance, multiple input types, a flexible design, and wide viewing angles.

Dell U2412M 24-inch widescreen LCD monitor
The Dell U2412M did well in our recent roundup of 23- and 24-inch monitors. It offers screen quality that’s almost as good as that of the top-ranked HP ZR2440w, for a little less money. Plus, its design is flexible and efficient.

The matte-black, 24-inch U2412M has a thin bezel, making it a good choice if you use multiple monitors. You can raise, lower, tilt, swivel, and pivot the monitor easily, and you can connect it to any device that uses DisplayPort, DVI, or VGA.

Our jury was impressed with this 1920-by-1200-pixel, LED-backlit display’s on-screen performance. Jurors gave it Very Good ratings for its text legibility, color quality, screen uniformity, and wide range of viewing angles. The only area in which it faltered was in our motion tests, where we rated it as Good.

Unless you’re looking for a monitor that doubles as a TV, the Dell U2412M offers most of the performance and features of the HP ZR2440w, but at a slightly more palatable price.
