Perfect but flawed

Darren "Harrow!", Amazon
18 September 2013
  • Summary: I've been using this monitor for a good year now and I must say it's definitely one of the best monitors out there. I mean the resolution is fantastic, the colors are perfectly calibrated out of the box, the viewing angles are wide. There are more outputs and inputs on the back of this monitor than I've ever seen. However, there is one huge flaw with this monitor. It's anti-glare feature! This anti-glare film creates a weird grainy texture to the images on the screen.

For a home, get Dell's U2713HM instead

Dave, Amazon

  • Summary: I prefer matte over glossy but the anti glare screen on this monitor was way too much for a home setting. I returned it and bought U2713HM instead and it's much better. Dell's U2711 is better suited for an office environment full of florescent lights where you need a very aggressive anti glare screen.

This thing is pricey

Made Media Photography, Amazon
26 December 2012
  • Summary: Got this from the big Cyber Monday sale. Saved almost 600 bucks on 2 of them since I like to run dual screens. Dont bother buying this if you do not have the latest graphics card. a VGA cable will not get you the full resolution, nor will an HDMI, you need the DVI 2 or the video port. It's not perfect out of the box either. The screen is a bit overly saturated which will kinda mess you up if you dont calibrate it as a photographer.

"Great features and OSD, problems with colors"

  • Pros: Impressive spects for a low price.
  • Cons: I bought the Dell Ultrasharp U2711 and I have a problem with the colors: They look cheep/not natural, especially the red tones. I switched through the color presets like "Cold", "Warm", "Adobe RGB", etc but this does not change my impression that the colo

50 / 50 - good stuff and bad stuff

zalusky, Ebay
23 July 2011
  • Summary: It's working pretty good now but there is an issue with display port connections and the monitor going into sleep mode and not coming out. I am still working in it. I might have considered differently had I researched this to begin with.

"It's okay if you don't mind the anti-glare coating"

gshank, CNET
9 February 2011
  • Pros: High resolution and lots of ports - I use the mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort with my MacBookPro and the cable was much cheaper than the mini DisplayPort to DualLink DVI.
  • Cons: The anti-glare coating/film SUCKS - I would have returned it but I got it for a really good price and I do like all the port options (compared to the Apple 27" cinema display).

"Worst anti-glare coating ever"

Markarian421, CNET
17 January 2011
  • Pros: I like the size, 30" seems to big, this seems just right. The resolution is really nice.
  • Cons: Sparkly and course anti-glare coating washes things out and it very distracting during photo editing. Uneven backlight bleedthrough

  • Summary: Was disappointed in this monitor. The screen is clear IPS glow in dark images which is extremely annoying when watching a movie. The blackness is not particularly impressive. Think that the screen has been murky colors. Guess it depends on wide-gamut. Should you run into SRGB as I do so not true colors against what you are used to. Red tends to shift towards purple for example. And yes, I had the screen set to SRGB mode.

8ms slow refresh

Pete..Liverpool "pete...", Amazon
25 June 2013
  • Summary: Good build quality and easy set up thanks to quick release on the stand. I would have given it 5 stars except for the slow refresh rate. This is the only problem I've found with this monitor. I could have sworn the description said 6ms when I ordered it...
