These are classic old UltraSharp monitors, and by that I do mean "old." I have a pair I bought 5 or 6 years ago. The 2412 means they are 24", and a 2012 model. Things to note:
  • These are 1920 x 1200, a 16:10 format, compared to 16:9 like a typical 1080 monitor. Many professionals preferred this format as you have more vertical space for coding or writing, or working on 16:9 images with room for menu/toolbars.
  • They are fairly large and heavy. Also very well-made. The mount is incredibly flexible and the monitor just "snaps on" to the special Dell mount. Dell also sold dual-monitor mounts (not cheap.) If you want a VESA mount, you have to buy an adapter for that. [UPDATE: My info was wrong. People pointed-out that there is 100x100 mounting on it if you remove the quick-connect adapter that is originally installed]
  • You can turn these vertical for very tall page format, like editing printed media.
  • These have a built-in USB hub but it is only USB 2.0. USB3.0 came in later models.
  • It does not have speakers but supports a Dell soundbar that mounts below the monitor.

Overall a great deal but recognize you are getting a very solid old-technology 1920x1200 monitor. Not sure why Staples still has a stock of these.

BS. Lowest new on eBay is $155 shipped. Most much higher. This model has been around for years so used is of course less. Every normal retailer is $165-$210 shipped.

This is a 16x10 business monitor. I am using a Dell 2415 now. More dots and more vertical height than a normal 16x9.

However, for some no HDMI kills the deal. Smilie That, speakers, and a vesa mount seem to be the differences between my 2415 and this one (thanks pmarin).

Great desktop work/home office monitor. HDMI to displayport cables are cheap if you need HDMI.

Yes but they you might be buying a monitor that has been used for 6 or 7 years. Plus big and heavy enough that would probably cost a lot to ship back if you buy a used one and try to return under some 30-day policy. Getting new from Staples seems much safer given all that.

And those Dell soundbars are dirt-cheap on the used market and sound pretty darn good for the size (and definitely way better than built-in speakers). Also, they'll turn on/off with the monitor.

27" IPS monitors often are on sale lower than this though.

That's true. But the 16:10 aspect ratio for less vertical scrolling is what you are paying for here. I was just shopping for a 16:10 for a friend and except for the new 25" Acer BW257 at $195 [amazon.com], 24" is the largest you can get without paying much more.

Yes, for consumer-grade 1080 monitors. Not 16:10. The 27" UltraSharps were 2560x1440 which was amazing for the time. Those seem to still be going for about $500 or more.

There were tons of Korean 27" 1440p monitors (Yamakazi, Qnix, X-Star, Shimian, etc.) using LG S-IPS and Samsung PLS panels that could be had for $180-230 many years ago. Then came the LG AH-IPS and AUO AH-VA panels with multiple inputs in the same price range. Now most all of that has dried up without seemingly any successors, and I've always wondered why.

Regarding HDMI, at the time, many computers still used DVI, and commercial/professional equipment had moved to DisplayPort, which is still used today (many commercial HP and IBM computers only support DisplayPort, not HDMI), Similarly the professional Nvidia Quadra series used DisplayPort.

Also at the time, I think the HDMI spec only supported up to 1080. You can get HDMI-DisplayPort cables for a few dollars. However note that some older systems may only support up to 1080 which would invalidate the reason to buy a 16:10 monitor.

Yeah, I do remember that time, hearing about all the people getting those for around $300 when I had just paid $550 for a U2713. (though I did like that 27" a lot; in fact it's what I'd recommend over the 24", but you won't find the 2713 or 2716 for anywhere near $129!)

For those wanting HDMI and a 1080 monitor, this UltraSharp deal from a week ago still looks live (notwithstanding it counts Rakuten points as part of the price).
https://slickdeals.net/f/13217656-dell-ultrasharp-u2414h-23-inch-full-hd-1080p-led-monitor-157-50-10-25-back-in-points-fs?src=rcm_category

The 2414 (year 2014) went down to 1080 instead of 1200, and people really didn't like that so it was kind-of a flop among professional users. Only year Dell made UltraSharps in 16:9 as far as I know. It does add USB3.0 though.

I have 3 of the same exact models for office/work use. I wouldn't recommend this for gaming. It's well built and very sturdy. Dropped one a couple times while moving and it still works, no dead pixels. I like the flexibility of the stand to flip it vertical and easy to snap off.
