It's monitor decision time with the new system I am putting together. I'd love to get some feedback from my flightsim colleagues. I've boiled it down to two guys:http://www.amazon.co...r/dp/B005JN9310http://www.amazon.co...K/ref=de_a_smtdI'm not pushing Amazon, it was just easier to link their site. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.Lee

The Dell is an IPS panel...I don't think the Samsung is. IPS gives really brilliant color reproduction--on my Dell U3011 monitors, the magenta flight director steering bars, for example, are very bright, much like the real thing. On a TFT display, magenta is dull and washed out in comparison.Odd that the IPS is cheaper...that's usually not the case.

IPS it is! The Dell 2410 has an 6ms response time and the 2412 has an 8ms response time, otherwise they seem the same. Does that make any difference in FSX?

The 2410 also has a nicer articulated/height adjustable stand, an HDMI input port, and some other goodies that the 2412 doesn't.As far as response time, my U3011 monitors have a 7ms gray-to-gray response, and it's not been an issue for FS, FPS games, or video.

I would first read the reviews on this monitor. Apparently it has really really bad color problem. Blue/Green from one edge to the other, when viewing yellow... very disturbing some say.HP ZR24W. Apart from some noise problems (not all models) and that it's very bright, no known problems known. I hope you can return the screen if you buy it (if you don't like it).

I think Rockliffe has this monitor and he says it's quite good.

Follow up, a conversation with Dell techs reveals that the newer U2410 models have the greenish issue fixed. I just have to be sure I get a newer model.Lee

Thanks for the info. Could you somehow tell what the "newer" versions are? If I would order, how would I know I have a newer model?

Got the U2410 monitor, it just arrived. It looks fantastic! I think Dell is only shipping the newer models. The colors are brilliant, I don't see any problems. I turned the brightness down a little bit, that's it! Wait until I pair it with my new Alienware rig that is coming next month. I'll report here again.Lee

I was thinking of getting it. My oldie Samsung 245B is really old. Colors are terrible already, and not speaking about the bad viewing angle.Say, how is the angle? Lets say radius of 40degrees up and down, do you see *any* brightness change?

Once I pair it with the new rig that's coming, I will really test it out. I just wanted to make sure it was okay so I don't have to send it back. I should have my new system up and running by mid Feb. This monitor is for the new system. My old Samsung Syncmaster T240HD is great and a tried and true warhorse. I will retire it to one of my work only computers. But for our favorite hobby, it is time for a newer and fresher look!Lee
