Dull colors and white is light blue

none2go, Ebay
8 November 2012
  • Summary: If you want your whites to look cyan, buy this monitor. It's a very "cool" monitor that can't be easily adjusted. I returned it and bought a Samsung of similar price--much, much better.

DOA, Dell Quality Control is a JOKE

D, Amazon
5 November 2011
  • Summary: Seller = Awesome. Dell = Not so much. Got monitor unboxed, all hooked up and found that half of the screen was just a block of white. The other half was almost completely devoid of color, looking washed out.

Two Defective Monitors in a Row

Martin A Emerson, Amazon
13 October 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this monitor and about 3 months later it began having vertical green lines over the right half of the screen. After a week long run-around with Dell, they sent me a replacement, which was a refurbished monitor. The refurbished monitor had a dead pixel in the center of the display.

Dmitry, Amazon

Excellent monitor for 5 hours

KEN BARBER, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: It was an excellent monitor for 5 hours, when half of the screen stopped functioning. I have two other Dell monitors (not the U2711) that are working fine. Out of thousands of monitors Dell produces, I guess every once in a while one goes bump in the night.
