I guess I'm just as disappointed that the U2410 is not noticeably different/better than the Samsung Syncmaster 245BW I had been using for so long. Maybe I need to experiment with calibrating the Custom Color preset a bit more.
EDIT: actually, I think it's going to be OK. I have both a PC and a Mac hooked up to it, and remembered I'd set it up for Mac gamma. So using the PC it doesn't look great. I need to see if I can set up the profile for each input source. And I need to bust out the calibration disc and meter. sRGB doesn't look so great to me. Custom color, with the defaults looks decent.

Anyhow, to my knowledge, they are suppose to replace with new on first 30 days. not refurb.
call CSR and bitch about it and get some discount out of it for wasting your time.

Well, I ended up requesting a replacement for my original monitor with the poor grayscale. The replacement that came was definitely a refurb, which kinda stinks because I paid for a brand new monitor that was essentially bad-out-of-the-box, and now I have a refurb :-(
The refurb is slightly better in regards to grayscale. I am using sRGB. I have not had time to do a full calibration. For viewing webpages or other content on a mostly white screen, I'd still say the uniformity and viewing angles is not great. I guess I just had higher expectations?

|deals2dream||i have been using this for the last 30 days or so. I dont understand why its priced so high? the text is not sharp and colors are not soothing to eye. I am using adobe settings. the most important i like is the form factor. Lot content can be seen due to its 16:10 ration. And of course more connections whether you use them or not. I just kept it.|

Mine arrived today. Fresh out of the box, I'm not very impressed. I'm coming from a 24" Samsung Syncmaster 245BW that's probably 5 years old and cost about $500 at the time. It uses a TN panel. I had high expectations from the Dell.
The major flaw is the apparent lack of grayscale uniformity across the screen. The middle third is a much warmer color temperature than the outer thirds. This is not a measured observation, just a casual visual one I make when viewing mostly-white web pages.
I'm not sure if I should request a replacement at this time. Maybe it will get better as it gets a few more hours on it? Maybe my eyes will adjust? I realize this is not a $20K professional monitor, but I was just thinking that a color temperature variations shouldn't be so obvious on just normal web pages.

Dont forget about signing up for the dell advantage program guys. U get 5% back via e-gift card 10-14 days after purchase. I did not see the Dell Advantage icon when checking out so i went ahead and chat with Dell rep and got them to place the order with the 5% e-gift card.
I know that the u2413 might be out in a few months but heck it'll prob be some rediculous price so I went ahead and pulled the trigger.
I'm a happy camper.

Just called to get the package deal I placed on 01/16/13 (XPS 8500 / U2410) changed to this price for the monitor order number.
The rep took care of it without any push back.
