Re: Quality Affordable Monitor
- It is possible to get very decent calibration from this monitor. I am using Spyder3Elite. Read http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/content/dell_u2410.htm first and follow the advice about starting with "Standard" profile and not "Custom".
If you will be using this for multimedia in addition to photo work, it's probably going to be necessary to switch modes. The article covers that as well.

this is a B&W list so ......
Some reviewers commented on the panel uniformity but I can not complain.
I use it for an Ubuntu box next to a more expensive NEC 2690 for a
Dispcalgui for calibration/profiling.
For a good discussion on monitor calibration/profiling see:

- In the "affordable" range, the Dell U2410 got good reviews, and I am very
pleased with it. I calibrate with a Spyder 3 Express every week or so, and
most of the time what I see is what I get.
