How about some quality control?

Shiv P, Amazon
16 May 2014
  • Summary: Let me start off by saying that Amazon customer service has been fantastic! Also, the picture, viewing angles, and sRGB color reproduction on these panels is really good. Now the bad stuff: At these prices, I expect my monitor to deliver perfection; unfortunately, Dell completely forgot to do any...

Amazing Product, Poor QA

Andrew Z., Newegg
15 April 2014
  • Summary: Currently in the RMA process with NewEgg to get a replacement. As I said above, when the monitors are actually checked for quality, they are great! Too bad my monitor was a bleeder.
  • Pros: Crisp quality, no dead pixels, beautiful monitor Friends own 2713s and 3011s -- excellent quality monitors when the quality assurance is up to par.
  • Cons: The specific monitor I received had heinous back-light bleed. I mean, absolutely abysmal! Bottom left corner was incredibly bright on black and dark colors. Top right corner bled through a lot of light as well. The other two corners had decent bleed through also. In all, the bleed-through made th...

Disappointing light bleed issues

K. Needels, Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought the U2713HM to replace a cheaper, older 27" Auria IPS monitor (EQ276W) thinking it would be an improvement. Unfortunately, this monitor was worse and so I returned it. First, the positives.

Vertical Lines Developed in Under 8 Months

Donna F., Newegg
31 January 2014
  • Summary: For the cost, and the hassle of returning the monitor along with the associated down-time, I would not purchase another one.
  • Pros: Lots of real estate.
  • Cons: With under 8 months of usage, the display developed long vertical lines that covered 75% of the screen. A quick internet search found others had similar issues. Thankfully still under warranty, Dell is in the process of sending me a new. Even though the customer service process was fairly painles...

Beware and awful support

Amazon Customer, Amazon
14 October 2013
  • Summary: I'm not going to dwell on the screen calibration process or anything related to color. This is more a technical review and a review of Dell's customer support. First, let me start out by saying that I've owned this monitor for a little over 60 days and have had it replaced a total of three times.

That light bleed!!

P. Ramos, Amazon
16 August 2013
  • Summary: The famous lightbleed on the lower left corner is really disconcerting on dark scenes. Hardly expectable on a product of this supposed category. And on top of that, Amazon is refusing to honor their warranty just because of that silly IPS warning.

Bad Backlight Bleed

John L., Newegg
16 July 2013
  • Summary: I really want to like this monitor, but the backlight bleed is large and distracting. Called Dell and they sent me a new one, but it's worse than the first. Will try again. Not the quality you would expect from an Ultrasharp.
  • Pros: Bright, sharp panel, accurate colors. No dead pixels.
  • Cons: Bad backlight bleed in bottom left corner about 4" up and 6" across

Great if you don't mind severe cross hatching

Scott S., Newegg
4 July 2013
  • Summary: I returned it and got the U2713H, which is a high quality display with Adobe RGB coloring (wide gamut) and no cross hatching. Unfortunately I have to return the U2713H because it has a defective USB 3.0 hub that basically only works if you plug it into a USB 2.0 slot on the motherboard or use USB...
  • Pros: Beautiful picture. Decent price. USB 3.0 is nice addition. Lots of ports.
  • Cons: CROSS HATCHING. It's basically thin diagonal lines running in both directions along the bottom half of the monitor. They are less noticeable from a distance but if you use your computer a lot (and I suspect if your thinking of spending $600+ on a monitor you do), you will see them. They are visib...

Cross hatching problems

Bjorn R., Newegg
25 June 2013
  • Pros: You can customize height, rotate it and flip it. Easy to add shortcuts to switch between DVI, HDMI, DP etc
  • Cons: This model has huge cross hatching problems I got mine replaced and even the replacement had the problem so I give up. Would not recommend to anyone doing design work, photography etc.

Buzzing noise

Timothy B., Newegg
7 June 2013
  • Summary: Dell has been really good with trying to resolve the issue. They have set me 2 refurbished replacements which were the same revision as the original monitor (rev.A00) both of which had the same noise issue.
  • Pros: Lots of connection options. USB hub is useful. This LED backlit monitor uses less energy and puts out less heat then my old CCFL backlit LCD. The image quality of the IPS panel (made by LG) is fantastic.
  • Cons: The monitor makes a high pitched buzzing noise when ever a large potion of the screen displays a high-contrast image. For example, viewing a spreadsheet or a text document in full screen mode will make you think there is an angry bee inside. Unfortunately, I didn't discover this until after the N...
