Fantastic overall but with gripes

S. T. Commeau, Amazon
30 July 2014
  • Summary: Fantastic overall but with gripes. You have to update it with some third party settings files if you want to use it with the newer macs and the display port, and said display port has some glitchiness now and then where it wants to send the monitor into power-save mode randomly and repeatedly, but aside from those things the price-to-spec list leans heavily in favor of this over the gratuitously expensive apple monitors.

So Far So Good

Jack Smith, Amazon
26 March 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.

Great display

Super Dave, Amazon
3 June 2013
  • Summary: The specs and price speak for itself, and a great price makes this a no brainer. I opted for this over the 30" because of the value this display had. Same technology/features in both, but you're paying significantly more for the 30" for a marginal increase is size. If money were no object, obviously the 30" would have been my choice. Being calibrated right out of the box is also helpful.

4 STARS After 6 Months of Professional Use

hiscifi, Amazon
10 March 2013
  • Summary: UPDATED 8/27/14 It took a bit of time to update this review, but in the meantime, a critical issue I had with the 2713H revealed itself: The cyan hue of this monitor I mentioned earlier is due to the colorspace of the monitor set to AdobeRBG, NOT sRGB. This was an error in settings on my part. when I selected the appropriate colorspace of sRGB for web media playback and 8-bit digital capture editing, colors were spot on.

Dell U2713H Version A06 USB3 Problem Fix Report

William O. Wood "Bill Wood", Amazon
10 March 2013
  • Summary: Back when I first bought a Rev A02 Dell U2713H in May of 2013, everything worked fine. However, after a few weeks the USB3 interface with the monitor died. Since I really did not need the USB capability at the time, and the monitor was the best I have seen from Dell, I held off calling tech support. Since then I have seen many reports of USB3 failures, with no real cure after many exchanges by Dell tech support.

Some good points

Dr. B. Harding, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: Bought June 2014. I do not have the motion blur effects, but I do have the automatic mode switching effects (I now have it in manual mode). I don't know if the stand has been modified, but I find it quite adequate - it is solid with plenty of vertical and tilt adjustment. It works well with my Mac laptop (1GB video memory) at full resolution (but only with displayport cable not via HDMI adaptor), but my Windows laptop (2GB video memory) via HDMI cable only supports...

Does what it says, very well.

Miles J. Hart, Amazon
2 May 2014
  • Summary: PROS: - Colours - DPI - Great stand - USB 3 hub - Has stereo out jack, so what ever your source is, it select the right audio. CONS: - No RGB (VGA) - Switching sources is a massive pain. I have Xbox on the HDMI, and PC on the miniDP. No matter what the screen has selected as its source, it tells all inputs that it is awake and ready to receive a signal. So if you plug both Xbox and laptop into the screen, switch to HDMI(xbox) source my laptop screen is blank.

Annoying buzz

TezzaD, Amazon
20 November 2013
  • Summary: The quality of the panel is great, fantastic colour reproduction (its the same panel as the Apple Cinema display), but has a really intrusive buzzing sound that changes intensity depending on what is being displayed. If you have any background noise you probably won't notice it, but I use in a quite room, and it really is a distraction.

Great picture quality out of the box

Rob Stoppable "Web-Nacho", Amazon
20 May 2013
  • Summary: I used to have a Dell Ultrasharp U2410and an old 19" Viewsonic on the side. I'd been thinking about upgrading the main monitor and moving the U2410 to the side for some time; I toyed with the idea of getting a U3013, but I just couldn't bring myself to pay double the price for another 3inches diagonal and a few more pixels. The U2713H seemed to be about the right bang-per-buck. I must say, I'm not disappointed.
