• I’ve owned the same monitor since January and love it. I had a Samsung 24″ TN panel die on me (due to their defective capacitor issues) and bought this as a replacement. No problems so far – and I enjoy the lack of reflection too. Tough these days to find a 24″ with 1920 x 1200 resolution – most seem to be 1920 x 1080 – and I enjoy the extra space. My initial copy did come with 5 stuck pixels but they shipped me a new one inside of a week.

    I think the color issues that a lot of people report are from the early revisions of this monitor – though I also calibrate with a Spyder 3. The 2410 has been around for a few years but I think once they got past the first few revisions everything has been fine. Something to keep in mind if someone is buying one used though.

  • I have the 30″ and a 24″ Dell monitors (I started with that 24″, but I think the generation before because the on button looks different)… but my setup is a horizontal 30″ monitor and the 24″ is setup vertically. The 24″ vertically is really nice for browsing the web and not having tons of white space because it’s about the standardized width on most websites (google+ looks horrible on the 30″, amazing on the vertical 24″) and second for putting the grid of images in Lightroom and to be able to select images to compare or have a single full-size on my 30″. Now I agree, the 30″ is pricey… but I live there 60% of my awake life editing photos or playing some video games… it’s the same as buying a really nice computer chair, I live there most of the time.

    I have purchased this monitor and I am also replacing my old PC with a new one. What is the best value graphics card to use with this monitor. I do the usual stuff Excel, Windows Adobe Acrobat PDF and a do a bit of CAD work but nothing too high level. What I want is to get the best out of the monitor. There seems to be no logic with graphics card prices. You can get two cards that appear to be the same and are hundreds of dollars apart in price.
    I would love some assistance.

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
