I'm still waiting for the A01 revision of the Dell Ultrasharp U2410. Should be at retailers soon hopefully.

Such a bargain, two of the bit-tech staff have already snagged them - myself and Hiren :)

hmmmm.....dell still making realiably good monitors. if only i had a little extra cash this month i'd get this to replace my current 20.1 dell which is ageing, but still awesome.

Mine just arrived. :) It's a very good screen for the money.

Even if I hate the random resolutions, this seems like a pretty decent screen (oh and great value for money), but why oh why is the stand made from the goddamn fingerprint plastic?!

Hmmm.... I'm looking to get a monitor in this size range. I'm no monitor expert (quite the opposite), so what benefit does the u2410 provide over this to the uneducated consumer?

Damn. £190 for that?

So horribly tempting. Only thing stopping me is the fact that I have no desk space left as it is!

Wow, that is a low price for what sounds like an awesome monitor. I'm happy with my year-old Samsung T220, but if I was in the market for an upgrade I would seriously consider something like this Dell... though I would prefer a standard 1080p just for the sake of convenience when it comes to gaming and other media. If they could make one with such a resolution, I'd almost be sold here and now.

Damn Yuraku spoiling my reasoning to get one of these! :(

Damn, that is a nice screen for the price.

I'll get one later in the year hopefully ;)

will games recognise the resolution? if not i wouldnt be interested in a horrible messed up resolution. you have to love the pixel pitch though. certainly a quirky product but i can see the benefits.

Games recognise the resolution. I have a SyncMaster 2343NW which is the same screen size and resolution but it only has a VGA input. The screen is matt rather than glossy which I do prefer and I find the quality to be perfectly fine for the £120 I paid for it. For the money this seems like a bargain as it has a much better array of inputs than my screen as well as a much better stand. For me games recognise the resolution so I dont have any problems there I just need a more powerful rig as I specced my GPU to my old resolution.

Pffft.....no portrait mode.....no interested.

Having played MAME vertical shooters in portrait mode.......there's no going back.

I want one!

As simple as that. time for me to save some money :)

don't let elton see this XD on another note- you guys should check out crysis on a crt.. heck even mass effect with grain on crt- looks like your watching a movie =]

A minor correction, but the monitor has 4 USB 2.0 ports, not 2 as stated on the first page - two are hidden away next to the B upstream connector, and two are positioned on the left hand side for memory sticks etc.

I have had one of these for 6 months now, and its the dog's danglies. Very tempted to get a second to replace my aging 2405.

And it's worth noting that if your graphics card supports audio out through the HDMI, you can use this as a source for the headphones socket on the monitor instead of the 3.5mm line-in. Although it's very quiet in this pass-through mode in my experience.

Looks great, given my distaste for multi monitor setups, the wideness of this one is very nice.
Landy_Ed 23rd January 2010, 20:01 Quote
Even cheaper from Scan, £171.51 inc vat (but ex delivery). even with delivery it's £182.60.

Tempting....so tempting....

I'm sold.

Hmmm... Any monitor with a TN panel is instant fail in my book. Especially with monitors like the Dell 2209WA, NEC EA231WMi and the LG W2220P out there. They might have a lower resolution, but image quality trumps resolution any day. :)
