Engadget Summary

The Dell UltraSharp U2412M is one of the sharpest 24-inch monitors available for the money, with great contrast and accurate color reproduction, not to mention wide viewing angles and a solid range of ports (including DVI, DisplayPort, VGA and five USB ports). The monitor has a sturdy base with full tilt, swivel and height-adjustment options, and you can switch from portrait to landscape orientation by turning the monitor, a feature we wish was available on more displays. While it lacks the memory card reader and HDMI port of the higher-end U2410, it also sells for $200 less, making it our all around top pick.
