4.0 out of 5 stars
slightly disapointing but still the best around for the price., 18 Oct 2012
Firstly I must say this is my first ips monitor, as such my expectations where perhaps a little high
The pros: bright screen
Rediculously fast response time (0.6ms on game mode)
Almost perfect colours out of the box (although I actually use the multimedia setting most which over saturated the colours but it looks good)
The cons: too bright for night use really, even with backlight set to 0
Ips glow... It's just there and there's no getting away from it.
Backlight uniformity isn't perfect (brighter bottom right and top right)
Now the boring bit, yes its good for general office work and the occasional film or game but if that's your main reason for buying the monitor don't expect perfect night time viewing.
So overall im happy with the dell u2312hm but it could have been so much better with a aw filter to banish the ips glow.
