Slim and lightweight cannot be the usual descriptor related to an IPS panel of 24 inch size. However, you cannot think of any other appropriate descriptor for the Dell UltraSharp U2412m when it comes to physical attributes. Unlike the previous model, here you will get LED backlight as an addition and the E-IPS panel replacing the H-IPS panel.

The LED backlight helps the device to maintain a thinner profile as compared to the previous models in the same series. The display panel is 1.1 inches thick and tapers towards the rear end, but before it ends it suddenly widens to 1.6 inches to include the ventilation system and the connectivity options.

The physical adjustment options in Dell UltraSharp U2412m include 90 degree pivotal adjustment, 20 degree back tilt and 45 degree horizontal swivelling. With 4.8 inches of height adjustment option you can also raise the panel to a height of 6.1 inches.

The connectivity options include video ports like DVI, DisplayPort and VGA, but lack the HDMI port. Moreover, the downward facing position of the ports is even more disappointing than the deficiency. Though there is no port for audio output, but you will get 4 USB downstream ports and one USB upstream port. The panel boasts of a matte screen film, maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:10.



The Dell UltraSharp U2412m exhibits light gray and white level of up to 254 and 255 respectively. From the numbers, it is quite evident that the display is capable of retaining contrast ratio as well as dark detail, washing out the light colours.


The issues related to colour tinting is highly avoided by employing the white background for the black texts. Moreover, a constant font size of 6.8 is maintained for clear visibility.
