    Also, when threads become very long (as I suspect this one will), posts which visually stand out provide a kind of reference point when you're going back looking for some snippet of information or other.

    That doesn't mean everyone should do it all the time of course, or else we'd be back to square one. :D

    As you were, gentlemen... :)

    I have $700 saved for a good LCD I really really hope the U2410 comes in around that price...And I love how its available in just about every country now except the country where it comes from :-(

    It comes from China, as it's final assembly point, I believe. Have not been able to confirm where the "testing" and "calibration" is performed . . .

    Well Mike Dell has had his since May in his office, so he does not care!

    I was just on the phone with 'Adrian' at ext. 7244161 at Dell Sales. He told me , after speaking with his boss, that the 'U2410' would be available within 1-2 months. That made me sad and want it even more. Though he was not positive, he said the price would be around $500. That I cannot believe.

    Figures. The whole world gets it like 2 months before the country that sells them does....nice.....

    EDIT: Actually I just called myself. I don't think they know anything yet. The person I spoke with said it will be on sale anyday now. Who knows...

    Here's some "bad" news: http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=1256560&p=8#r160

    1) Dell won't calibrate replacement units

    2) There is no such thing as "revert to factory calibration", so if you want to change something, you must not mess around with the defaults the monitor shipped with and only use custom settings

    The good news is that we are still talking about per-monitor factory calibration, which is something no other prosumer monitor has, as well as possible sRGB compliancy.

    I'm looking forward to HardForum members getting their monitors and posting reviews here :) I'm a CRT owner, and quite frankly, this is the only LCD so far - apart from the NEC 2490 that I cannot obtain - that has managed to get me excited. If it can do sRGB properly, and if the calibration is decent enough (as I cannot obtain calibration equipment, either), I'm going to buy this thing, despite it probably having a $1000+ price tag when it appears for sale here.

    Beleive the $ 500.00 number if HK is any indication, it looks like Dell may want to "push" these" out (like the 2209WA) to grab market share, and that they do have some "price room" to play with.

    That would be great. I wonder how it will stack up against the HP 2475w and that LG that is not here in the US yet...

    Well, these mfg's typically tell you longer than it will be, so that if it comes sooner, they look good...

    Anytime you hear a dell baseline price you can go ahead and assume that atleast one week of each month it will be 20% off.

    Dell.no wants NOK 6286 (inc. VAT) for the U2410. What did you pay? (Any use calling them to ask for a better price?)

    You all think i should order this tomorrow or the 2709 there approximately the same price, i know the resolution is the same, but is the extra display space worth it to go for an older model ?

    im SOOO torn about what to do ?

    And at some point in the not too distant future, the 2709 will be replaced by the U2710!

    Depends as far as i am aware LG doesnt make 27" IPS panels, so i am presuming the new U2710 will still be a PVA panel presumabley Samsung ?

    Avoid the 2709 unless you want a 107 watt space heater that needs periodic CCFL tube replacement. I've had a 2708 for around 3yrs and while it's a decent monitor the heat dissipation and light tube failures have made it a lot less enjoyable.

    I would not buy another monitor that didn't have LED backlighting. The heat dissipation is much lower and the LED's will never (from a practical standpoint) fail.

    And they (LGD) do not make a 23" either, yet NEC is obtaining such . . .

    U2710 will probably be LGD, and most likely IPS.

    Sure LG makes a 23" (Manufacturers are always looking to downsize), that is what is in the new NEC.

    But 27" Jury is out. But I expect this is still PVA. Time will tell.

    We heard about LG's 23" e-IPS panel in January of this year. No word yet on a 27" IPS panel of any type. Seems unlikely, since they already do a 25.5" panel.

    Hmm, I take that back. Never heard anything about it again though, and it was never said whether it was IPS.

    Neither Samsung or LGD have any new 27" panels listed as yet. . .

    Using same logic, why do a 23" when there is a 22"? LGD seems to have a few "tricks" coming, all of the IPS flavor.

    23" = 1080p (that size has always been a step up in resolution, until 19X12/10 22" showed up.) We knew about that one a couple months before anyone heard of the W2420P, so at that point it was assumed we'd get the 22" 1680x1050 2209WA, and a 23" 1920x1080 counterpart. Then the 23" panel never showed up (until the NEC EA231WMi) and we assumed the W2X20 replaced it. Then those never showed up..etc.

    Anyway, the point is that all these panels and monitors were announced months before they were slated to arrive, regardless of whether or not they actually made it to market, and we've had few last-minute surprises. I'll still irrationally hope for a 27" 120Hz IPS monitor, but I expect a rehash of the 2709W.

    Yes, we do. :) I think Dell U2410 will go for about 800USD or so in the US, because prices are about 20% higher or more in Norway.

    Interestingly, 2490wuxi2 has about the same price tag as U2410 here (2490wuxi has disappeared). I just hope the input lag of the U2410 isn't that horrible and more bearable like with the HP LP2475W.

    I was quoted 47,000 Indian rupees for this, which is about 1000 USD. Laughed my ass off.
    Got the 2209WA for 18,000 INR, which is ~360$, with a 5-year warranty, so that wasn't too bad.

    It's not a new panel, it's just a new revision of the existing panel ;) Maybe it gets rid of the pink/green issue? We'll know soon enough, when trusted members of this forum receive their monitors.

    Hopefully the red subpixel issue will be dead and buried with the newer panel revision. I have never seen that problem with other panels. My HP clearly had it though.

    cnet has something resembling a review here: http://www.cnet.com.au/dell-ultrasharp-u2410-339298064.htm

    "While wide gamut monitors tend to blow out red and greens in non-colour managed applications, setting the preset to sRGB produced natural colours, and so it was here we performed our tests."
