I am looking for information comparing the coating of the Dell U2412M vs. the more recent Dell U2515H. From the information I could gather so far it seems the Dell U2412M has the same coating as the U2515H which is in both cases an H3 coating. On this form and may others I have read that the coating is highly problematic (although not for everyone apparently).
For example this quote:
In the case of this Dell screen, which uses "Anti Glare H3 Coating" (according to Dell), the coating is very prismatic, or results in visible refraction and even splitting of light into its component colors.1
Avoid anything with anti-glare hard coating. Especially the 3H/H3/whatever that Dell use. It completely and utterly DESTROYS the entire purpose of having an IPS panel; visual quality. 2
Prad.de, although a German site, has a microscope image for the U2515H coating, but I could not find one for the U2412M.
I personally own a U2412M and I sometimes get headaches from the monitor so I would like to make sure that if I get the U2515H it does not have the same problems.
- Can anyone tell how the U2515H compares to the U2412M? In particular with respect to the coating?
- Does anyone have a link to a microscope image of the U2412M's coating?
- Did Dell do any changes to the coating in the recent editions of the Ultra Sharp monitors?
