Dell Intros G2410H LCD Monitor

Dell rolled out its latest business LCD monitor, the G2410H. This model succeeds an older, similar model, the G2410. It has a 24-inch TN panel screen with WLED backlit illumination. The LCD uses arsenic-free glass. Power management and ergonomics is taken care of by an ambient light sensor that adjusts the monitor's settings to best suit the environment it's in. When in sleep-mode, the display consumes 0.15W of power (under 20W typical consumption). Its stand allows height and angle adjustments. Specifications include a native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, 5 ms response time, 250 cd/m² brightness, and contrast ratio of 1,000:1 with dynamic ratio of 1,000,000:1. It takes input from DVI and D-Sub. Sold with a 3-year warranty, the G2410H is priced at $339.

340$ for a TN monitor????! Now that's a joke. If it was an S-PVA screen with WLED it would have been ok, but for this... I failed to understand how this model is better than the old 24 inchers with S-PVA screens?? Adding WLED lighting doesn't necessary means a better picture. Trust me, I know...

20W standard power, arsenic free

sounds like its a new 'eco' model, not a new 'awesome shiny super clarity' model

Why oh why do they use the same "product number" as the U2410? (Which is a great monitor). Do they want to TRICK people who have heard about the U2410 into buying the low quality smaller resolution G2410? Or do they just want to destroy brand value by undermining the great U2410 name with this cheap shoddy imitation?

Really, two products, same number, only swapping G for U and having a totally different resolution, panel technology, and feature set. Numbskulls! :banghead:

Okay, speaking as someone who has had an S-PVA panel in the form of the infamous Dell 2408WFP and swapping it for a TN Samsung 245BW I honestly do not see what the big hangup is over S-PVA. It's expensive, more often than not has MAJOR input lag and/or ghosting, and only really is good for photo editing.

It's the one reason I wound up going to a TN panel in that I honestly could not stand the high amount of lagginess (not even sure that's a word) that it exibited during gameplay. Sure, movies and pictures looked slightly more prettier but everything looked as good to me on the TN panel I switched to. 'Course, having the extra money in my pocket was really nice as well since I was able to find a sucker, err, buyer that knew of the "OMG! S-PVA Dell FTW! LOL!!" that was going on at the time after Dell switched back to TN who was willing to pay a little extra for it.

When S-PVA gets down to the same prices as TN then we'll start talking otherwise the entire "S-PVA FTW" really does not mean much to me since the price premium is not really worth it.

hey dude, I've seen the lag issues you are talking about and they really aren't that bad. They are livable, anyways, this product is a complete waste of money. I think I rather spend 50 to 100 bucks more and buy a H-IPS monitor from Dell or HP. Hell, even Viewsonic has a 23" S-IPS monitor for less than this.

PVA is a little slower, sure, but those of us that like them prefer image quality over speed. We think Tn-film looks like total and complete ass.

Now that said, IPS is the best way to go if you can afford it, imo. Much faster than PVA, with the same image quality. It's biggest downside is price. My LP2475w (nearest competitor to the U2410) was $600.

Dell's models are pretty standardized.

[type] [size][year][modifier]

G2410H = Green (Eco) 24" 2010 model with Height adjustment
U2410 = Ultrasharp 24" 2010 model
ST2310 = Standard 23" 20010 model
SP2309W = Standard Panel 23" 2009 model Widescreen (when widescreen wasn't quite as ubiquitous as it is today)


Most of the monitors dell sells go to businesses. And most of the people that do ordering for businesses know how the naming scheme works and appreciate its simplicity.



EDIT: Point of Interest. Before the release of the G2410H we had:
G2410
U2410
ST2410
P2410

No argue here, except that the lagging you're talking about it's only seizable on older PVA screen. S-PVA types improve the timings almost as close as a TN panel. Hell, I have my monitor for 3 years now and never noticed any lag when watching movies or playing games. Not once.
