Over priced & under valued - get the u2713hm or u2412m instead...
3 July 2014
Summary: I bought this expecting a great monitor to match the great price. It's ok but nothing special. I already have a Dell U2412M so I sat them side by side and ran through a comparison -- the result - the difference is miniscule. So, don't waste the extra $450. Yep its a bit larger and has more resolution. If you do opt for the higher res then get the u2713hm. It's $150 less and nearly the same monitor -save a larger colour pallet your eye can't discern.
Excerpt: The monitor is great for my Photoshop work. Great color, contrast and clarity. Works well with my Spyder 4. This is my second monitor. The original had a problem with the USB ports. I had a lot of problems with the OEM regarding ownership, and warranty registration. B&H took care of it by sending a new unit. The rating would be five stars except for the OEM and their policies.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast, Great picture quality
Summary: I pestered my boss until they ponied-up the $$$ and got me one. Money well spent. I am seeing things I have never seen before. The clarity of text and graphics is outstanding. I can't vouch for the quality of the color for graphics work, seeing how most of my time is spent coding in Visual Studio, but for programming, it's perfect. The adjustment stand is the best I have seen on any monitor or TV. Mine is rev 00 manufactured in February 2014.
Summary: I have not tested the USB3.0 yet that has been mentioned as an issue. This is version A06 so I think it is the fixed version. First monitor I got was A04 and the back sticker was partially pealed off making me concerned. When I turned it on and went through a color test it was clear there was an issue. A quarter sized circle top middle on red and white had a significant color issue. I sent it back. There is no way it passed color calibration with that defect.
13” Mid 2010 MacBook Pro and Dell U2713H Display - It Works

Summary: My 13” Mid 2010 MacBook Pro and Dell U2713H Display are playing together fine at the maximum resolution supported by the display using the cable provided in the box. Dell made the right move by providing the appropriate cable to go from a mini displayport on a mac to the displayport on the monitor. Without this $5 cable, I would have undoubtedly had additional issues and would have had to hunt up an appropriate adapter to connect to the display.
Summary: UPDATED 4/2/14 This is my most recent issue with the monitor. It may not be the monitor itself. It may be my calibration device and I am further looking into it, but there appears to be a slight cyan hue to the overall color palette. This monitor does use the most current backlight technology, so I suspect a firmware update for my spider4Pro calibrator may be coming out soon. Also, the backlight bleed from the corners of my monitor is a joke.
