I really expected something better for the price.

blue348, Amazon
31 August 2012
  • Summary: When I ordered the U2711, I really thought I was going to the next level of displays. I know it's not at the level of an NEC or an Eizo but still, it's an almost $800 monitor. Maybe my expectations were too high, but this left me pretty disappointed. To start off, I like it on paper. The stand is solid, though it doesn't pivot, it's got all the inputs I'd ever need, and it's more than quick enough for gaming. Plus, if you're coming from 1080p, the resolution is awesome.

name brand great specs - on paper only

  • Summary: l love this monitor during the day when i am working on it. clear, crisp excellent for word processing and work in general. really. i hate this monitor during the evening when the room is dark especially when watching movies. there is no black, only gray. tried to fiddle with settings, but no change. and that annoying backlight bleed along the edges. less so than on cheaper monitors, but still there. i was expecting a lot more from this monitor.

Problems with displayport

Selrouge, Amazon
6 November 2012
  • Summary: After 6 months this monitor starting behaving badly. I was driven mad by the apparent failure of the displayport connection to my Mac Powerbook. I had to resort to a lower resolution HDMI connection of 1600 x 900 instead of the full 2560 x 1440. I finally found a discussion that helped me solve the problem (by a hard restart of the monitor and possibly by resetting the DDC/CI settings in the onscreen diplay menu - not sure yetif this will be a permanent solution) see...

Nearly the best product ever!

CCNPInkers, Amazon
24 May 2012
  • Summary: After originally giving this monitor 5 stars i have now started to notice a green to pink tint rinning from the bottom left of the screen to the top right. I hear this is quite a common fault with IPS monitors and im absolutly gutted to be having to send this monitor back as it really is amazing resolution wise;( Why cant LG (Panel Suppliers to Dell) sort there rubbish QC out. The consumers wont stand for 2nd rate products, especially for 570 pounds....

Could be great, but colour inconsistency a potential problem

Frankie Boy, Amazon
16 April 2012
  • Summary: I have had the superb 24" Dell 2407WFP as my main monitor for some time now and was drawn to the newer model by the promised better colour reproduction and of course the larger resolution. Unfortunately I was very disappointed - physically solid monitor with a great range of inputs, BUT I also had the same colour shift problem across the monitor that many people are reporting on this and the 30" version, with a distinct red/orange shift in the colour in the bottom right...

Anti-glare

Mightymath "mightymath", Amazon
22 March 2012
  • Summary: I mainly work with text on a white background and found the anti-glare coating made the screen speckled/dirty/shimmer and text was hard to read - it was bad enough that I returned the monitor. Amazon's return process was excellent. From other reviews it's clear most people aren't bothered by the anti-glare coating. Maybe because video/images look fine. Or maybe some older versions don't have the same anti-glare coating.

User Review

Ben Bracken, Cnet.co.uk
17 January 2011
  • Summary: I've had two of these monitors from Dell now, and both show problems with colour uniformity. I'm really disappointed, because there's a lot to like about the resolution, clarity, and depth of colours, and there are loads of reviewers and owners raving about it. But being a graphic designer I require colours to appear consistently over the whole panel, not just on one side, or in one corner. And no amount of calibrating can correct such a problem.
  • Pros: Resolution
  • Cons: Colour Uniformity

  • Excerpt: До этого пользовался Dell 2709 на SPVA матрице, там явно лучше с контрастом, но мониторов с 2560 на 1440, не, на IPS, я пока не видел Жаль. И пожалуй про кнопку включения она на 2711 механическая, видемо потому что на 2709 были проблемы, иной раз неделями не мог включить, толи перегревался монитор, толи мозги и у него зависали, и чтобы не искать решение проблемы, механическая кнопка - делл так выкрутился.
  • Pros: Большой, тяжелый, только его характеристики
  • Cons: Пиксели маленькие кристаллический эффект есть но это не большой минус так как сидеть от него все равно надо подальше. Трудно разобраться в меню, по нашел как динамическая контрастность включается/выключается прошло пару часов(доступна для изменения, только при режиме видео). Матрица нечто? заявленный контраст можно получить лишь сидя прямо перед монитором, чуть в сторону и черный превращается в темно серый, диагональные засветы вообще не поддаются описанию, чисто белы...

DELL UltraSharp U2711 68 cm (27") IPS-Panel

Fab4life, bewertungen.cyberport.de
25 September 2012
  • Summary: Der Dell U2711 scheint auf den ersten Blick ein hervorragender Monitor in seiner Preisklasse zu sein. Wenn man den Monitor über den Display Port anschliessen kann und ihn mit der vollen Aufläsung 2048 x 1152 ansteuern kann ist das Bild sehr zufriedenstellend. Auch die Anschlussvielfalt ist auf den ersten Blick hervorragend.

Totalmente inadecuado para trabajar.

Miguel1900, Ciao
7 March 2012
  • Summary: Compré el monitor DELL UltraSharp U2711 con la intención de darle multitud de usos, pero fundamentalmente para diseño, tratamiento de fotos-texturas y 3D. Su gran tamaño (27") y resolución (2560x1440), asi como su gran gamut tanto en Adobe RGB como en sRGB lo hacen aparentemente imbatible en ese rango de precios (más aún en la oferta que conseguí).
  • Pros: Gran resolucion, gran gamut, las peliculas HD se ven bien
  • Cons: Capa anti - reflejo lo hace inviable para trabajar .  Enmascara el color .  Produce gran fatiga visual
