Isn't the U2410 30-bit H-IPS?

Great information.
Color spaces particularly useful and not as good as I thought for the higher end models. Some of these advertized as "wide gamut" are just "different gamut".
Also it's unfortunate how the contrast ratio drops off at lowest brightness. 100nit, the lowest measured, is suitable for a bright room, but even here contrast is very low for some of these monitors. To reduce to just one number, measuring contrast ratio as the minimum over a 50nit-150nit range would give a much truer picture.

Any idea about the input lag of the monitors?

I have heard complaints about the 2408WFP's lag (which I presume the U2410 replaces?)

Good review but is it possible to include the wattage in any future articles re monitors as it is a serious consideration these days with high power costs that are rising all the time

I am wondering what can account for the difference of your measurements from AnandTech's 2010 review of the U2711:

AnandTech got good performance in the key areas:
-color gamut
-performance at low brightness

Dell advertizes the U2711 as suitable for critical use, and many photographers recommend this monitor. Is it possible your measurements are off? Or has Dell started to use inferior panels?

A colorvision spyder is not sufficiently precise to measure monitor quality. It certainly is not one of the best mainstream sensor on the market.

In addition it is not clear that you perform color test after having hardware calibrated and profiled the monitors.

The article says: "The monitor’s Brightness and Contrast are both set at 75% by default. I achieved the 100-nit white by selecting 50% Brightness and 56% Contrast."

It's a bad idea to reduce Contrast as it directly reduces the contrast ratio! If you want lower nits you need to reduce Brightness as low as possible, before touching Contrast (if it's still needed).

These results are in marked contradiction to those of TFT Central, which show a full Adobe RGB gamut for the 2410:
I do not see how they can both be right, and the ones herein seem very odd -- how can Dell be selling a monitor with a claimed wide gamut that is not very wide, and does not come close to matching the manufacturer's specs. It is not as if Dell is a small company with no reputation to protect.
Can anyone suggest a way to reconcile the contradiction? Dust on the color checker?

Xbit's results are also contrary to results in:
... which show a wide gamut for the 2410.
