    Need a new monitor

    My current Samsung Pebble SM2232BW on my home gaming rig is on its last legs with an intermittent backlight issue (probably a dry joint). So I'm looking for a replacement. My current usage is gaming, tv/films and general web browsing. I've had a quick google around and the Dell U2412M seems to pop up a lot. Does anyone have any recommendations or has experience with the Dell and could offer some feedback?

    Sat in front of a U2412M as I type this, lovely monitors if you can find them at a good price, brilliant for decent colour reproduction.

    Yep, about right. Bit dearer than other monitors in that size range but far better quality than others I've seen.

    I have one, I love it, has great colour, viewing angles etc. It is also pretty cheap for an IPS monitor.

    Only drawback I can think of with it is it has no 1:1 pixel mapping so if you plug in an Xbox, PS3 etc you will get a stretched image as they are 16:9 devices. Possibly not the best for very fast fps gaming although I play battlefield 3, borderlands on it and notice no ghosting or other oddities.

    Edit:
    ... for playing Warcraft you want to get this.

    It's only ever going to get plugged into my PC.
