Summary: The monitor was good. I am not particularly demanding as far as the quality of the picture, so I was fairly pleased... Until I the monitor got dimmer and I got vertical lines. I could get the picture back if I gently push in the middle of the back panel. It looked to me that there was a loose connection or wire inside the panel. The product support was excellent and in 10 min an exchange was arranged.
Pros: The 2560x1440 resolution was amazing and the overall color quality was fantastic. The adjustable stand was sturdy and worked well. I also enjoyed the USB 3.0 ports on the side.
Cons: I could not get past the significant back-light bleed on the lower left corner. At first I only noticed it on letter box movies but then it became more apparent in full screen shows and gaming as well. There was also very noticeable IPS glow. These effects were in all lighting situations with the darker environments being the worst of course.
Summary: Both of the other two U2713HM displays developed image retention issues, however this one is currently free of that. I'll give it more time obviously before I truly decide to accept its flaws.
Pros: Fantastic features,
Cons: Yellow BackLightBleed. I'm not talking about IPS glow, which usually requires dark room, dark screen and sometimes certain angles to be seen. I've had to return this model with build date oct 2012 with rev A00 twice to another retailer because of it. This model shares the same build and revision. It isn't quite as bad as the previous models however it is still there, bottom left corner a yellow bleed that dirties whites and discolors blacks. Becomes much more visible ...
Great panel BUT.....backlight bleeding problems!!!

Summary: I went through 2 Dell U2713s monitors from Amazon. The first 2 Dell U2713s were awesome but had HORRIBLE backlight bleeding (i posted pictures)! It was quite unfortunate. I finally gave up on Dell and decided to order the ASUS PB278Q monitor and it is just about perfect!
Summary: I ordered 3 of these to replace my old triple screen monitor setup that I use for video editing and triple screen gaming. Firstly, those monitors aren't that expensive, I don't understand why NCIX offer them at a staggering price. I had it price matched 200$ off from a neighbor online store. The mounting was hassle-less, it have a nice mount that you only have to snap on and you are ready and adjust the height and rotation at your taste.
Pros: - sharp display, - solid and convenient wire support, - slim, - tilt features, - USB 3.0, Display Port 1.2, DVI dual link input, plus HDMI and old vga support.
Cons: - Bad backlight bleeding problems, - old HDMI support, doesn't support more than 1080p, - no Displayport cable supplied, - vga cable supplied., - Expensive via NCIX, pricematch highly recommended
Summary: My Asus computer does not recognize the Dell when I use the DVI cable. It recognizes it only with the VGA cable with lower resolution. I'm on with Dell Support after over an hour of trying to fix this issue. The screen looks like it will be great, but the set-up is frustrating.
Great visually, but emits a high-pitched sound with certain text sizes

Summary: Excellent display visually, except for one annoying factor: when the screen is entirely filled with ca 18pt type (approx. 55 lines of it), there is a high-pitched audible whine coming from its electronics. I work in a very quiet room, so maybe people in noisier environments don't notice, but if you cherish silence, this is not for you. If you then slightly change the zoom you can hear the pitch change -- ca 3500 Hz.
