Excellent monitor, great value,
This review is from: DELL 860-10161 - UltraSharp U2412M 24 INCH LED monitor Black (Electronics)
I bought this monitor from Amazon and I'm very happy with it.
I'd read a lot about the anti-glare coating which Dell has been using and which many people didn't like on its other monitors (eg the 27 inch version), as it was causing harsh refraction effects especially on all-white backgrounds such as on Google and MS Word applications.
But this monitor is fine. (NB It does still have an anti-glare coating with a satin finish so you don't see your own reflection in the monitor, but it looks ok.)
Everything is uniform, clear and crisp. There are no bleed patches in the corners which affected earlier models -- but obviously it's been fixed on my one -- which has a build date of November 2011. Colours are great. And I love the 16:10 aspect ratio, which gives you significantly more vertical space to work in, and it has a nice comfortable dot pitch. I also like the fact that the LED backlight does not get hot, and thus energy usage is very efficient. LED, by it's nature does not emit the U-V radiation that other light sources do.

This is interesting, it seems that Dell may have actually listened to feedback on the anti-glare and toned it down. I have yet to find an official statement though. I'm tempted to buy another just incase they revert back to the old coating! Hope you are enjoying your monitor as much as I am. Thanks.

I don't think any hardware company would give a such statement. They just quietly slip in product improvements. But you do get a clue -- when they change the revision numbers.

Going to buy two of these for a Dual monitor setup next month.
Question if I may?
What Revision of the monitor (A01,A02 etc) is it that Amazon is selling?
The price reduction makes me wonder if there is a stock of earlier revisions to clear - with the reported panel problems..
