Summary: This review is split into two: A review of my Amazon service and a review of Dell U3011. First of all let me explain that the Dell looks fantastic, very crisp, great colours and the screen just performs excellently. Plenty of inputs and future proofing. I wanted to love this monitor but it hums. And it drove me barmy. Any brightness under 90% and it would emit a high hum - I believe its from the built in power transformer in right hand side.
Summary: With so many positive reviews across the Web and wanting a 30" 16:10 monitor with both analogue and digital outputs, this latest revision of the 30" 2560x1600 monitors from Dell seemed ideal. It certainly is physically impressive. The build quality seems reasonable, the monitor casing is quite slim, the stand sturdy, there's pretty much every kind of input you could hope for and the OSD/firmware presents lots of options in a clear and easy to use way.
