Xbox 360 can output 1680x1050 and adds black bars to properly display 16:9 images on a 16:10 screen, but PS3 can't, as it only supports "TV" resolutions, from what I know.
Thanks. Still on the fence. It would be pretty awesome if it worked with ps3 also but considering getting it anyway as a xmas present for myself since I can't seem to locate another FW900 or SGI and my last SGI died.
Which rep do you need to talk to to get the $293 price could someone please PM me the information? Or should I try my luck on live chat?
Maybe I missed it, but is it possible to get a meter to calibrate this screen for around the $150 mark? I know somewhere in this thread it was mentioned that you would need a spectrophotometer. I also recall someone saying that the device and software you use with it make a big difference as well. So can both of these be done for around $150? Or at least the meter?
*EDIT* Haha I put in photospectrometer. Sounds like something that takes pictures of ghosts
@10e: I got some photos of my display but the picture is getting worse than what i see. How much should i set the ISO and what about the settings?
I think that's an issue with the factory calibration on these screens. The blue channel seems a bit too strong on mine, which is why my blue setting on RGB Custom Color is at 89 versus 96 for Red and 93 for Green.
But if you don't like it and can't fix the problem, send 'er back!
I just bought a Dell U2412M. Overall it's nice, with no noticeable backlight bleed or dead pixels.
However I have noticed that there is a yellow tint on parts of the screen. In the center of the screen the colors look ok, but from the middle of the screen and downwards (and to the left, especially in the lower left corner) the colors gradually get more yellowish.
Is this a known problem with the Dell U2412M, and if so is it common? I'm considering returning it, but then I'll have to enter the panel lottery again and perhaps I get a new monitor with backlight bleed or other problems?
Man you just saved me an RMA. Both mine are A02 revision, but the one had a blue tint to it - I probably would not have noticed it as much if I didn't have a matching panel right next to it. It was really starting to annoy me to the point where I was about to call Dell and have them send me a new one through advanced RMA - I did not want to do this as my first one came with a bad panel (red line smack dab in the middle) and I needed to RMA it. Dell as usual is amazing if you know how to talk to the tech support department. I just went to custom color mode and took the blue from 100 to 96 - now both panels match dead on. (all other settings are the same on both). I'm also using Dell's custom color profile that came on the driver disk. Again thanks!
This might be a stupid answer. I too noticed on my Dell that near the bezel the white color turns to slightly yellowish, The culprit might be the bezel pressure on the panel but what if the display is just dirty? I imagine that in the manufacturing plant, before each display is put in it's cardboard box, somebody has to wipe the screen clean with a towel and some sort of cleaning solution. If the job is done sloppily eventual dirt ad the residues of the cleaning agent will just be smeared along the bezel. So how to clean the display properly?
10e - Sorry, I was away for the holiday so I didn't see your reply. So don't go with the Elite? I see that's about $180, which is still sort of within the same range to me. Also, does the Express do luminance? I basically want to calibrate this as much as possible without spending a thousand dollars on a meter. I'm also concerned because it is an LED lit display that the colorimeter I get supports that and will give me an accurate reading.
Kirika - you are welcome. I guess you got the price you wanted Glad to have helped.
I found something interesting about this monitor secret menu...My monitor have different settings than others u2412m at this forum.Take a look picture.
Btw, i set brightness 38, contrast 74, at custom custom color of r 100, g 100, b 100.Picture is ok, a small ips glow, but can't get rid of reversing ghosting...Overdrive can be off, but not permanently.Revision is A02.
Someone have idea how it can be disabled..permanently!

Hey guys, what is the best settings for watching movies on the U2412M?
I'm in a room where its mostly dark. Brightness has been set to 90 with the contrast at 75.
Preset Mode is Game.
Dynamic Contrast is set to OFF.
I just want it to be as optimum as possible when watching movies.
Anyway, I did some tests at http://lagom.nl/lcd-test, and was very happy until I got to the Viewing Angle page. For some reason the first image, Viewing angle and gamma, is pretty bad, and looks a lot like the TN examples below... I've looked around for some other IPSs and they seem to show no red "lagom"s at that page if you look at it straight ahead? ...
The CCT in kelvin doesn't help much because it doesn't describe one color but a range of colors (an association of the measured sample with the temperature of a black body radiator which is next to the sample) which can be very different. But you can of course describe the surface homogeneity in a valid way. We examine for example luminance and chroma differences separately for 15 measuring points and 4 grey tones (25/50/75/100%).Since the color temperature can vary so much depending on where on the screen you measure, shouldn't monitor reviews contain some kind of "color temperature uniformity" measurements as well?
If the monitor is properly calibrated, you will not see Lagom text in the spot you calibrate. Howevver, if the monitor is not uniform, you'll see that gamma variant text revealed in other areas.
Your two monitors sound like mine, a little yellow tint towards the bottom of one, the other one on the right. Both are not horribly noticeable unless you view a white page or really look for it on black and white image. I did return one of the three I had because it failed to have proper contrast < 850:1 and it had a very large 800K white point variance with a large yellow tinted spot in the middle (relative to the corners). It was not possible to calibrate the middle section to white without looking at really cool corners.
It's a shame that we don't have the option to receive a properly tested monitor with less than 50K white point variance. I would gladly pay extra to guarantee proper testing for a tighter tolerance as an option. Until these companies hold LG to higher standards, we're going to see this variability in IPS displays from them.
