Differences between Dell U2410, U2412m and U2413?
Jun 11, 2013

I am looking for a monitor with the price range of £200-400. These three monitors seem to keep popping up in searches as a reasonable priced option for a monitor that will last at least a couple of years.

The Asus screens of similar quality seem to have much trouble with back light bleeds.

The U2410 seems to have a wide gamut an sRGB and has been very popular but I have seen negative reviews on the AG coating and also the brightness even at lowest setting. It does seem to be highly regarded though and retails at about £350.

The U2412m seems to have been stripped back a bit and features 95% sRGB, and less wide gamut, no HDMI and I have seen it regarded as more of a consumer model rather that for editing. But still seems very popular £209. AG again seems to be an issue. Plus its 6 bit.

The U2413 is the more expensive at £379 but seems to have better colour space etc and 10 bit. I have seen negative comments regarding the fact it only supports xrite-pro1 calibration, but actually I have one of these. Ghosting and AG seems to be a big issue and have seen some comments about contrast. I do play some games occasionally and I realize it is not a gaming monitor, and the other half will need to be able to do spreedsheets etc for work. The primary point of this monitor purchase is photo-editing.

Is the coating on the U2413 slightly better than the U2412m or 2410? Posts seem to indicate it is more aggressive on the U2410.

At the moment I am leaning towards either the U2410 or the U2413, but am unsure of what would be the best. I assume you can set a profile on the wider gamut for sRGB when doing normal stuff like browsing the internet so that the colour's are not washed out?

Many thanks
