Nice and big

Albert C., Newegg
16 March 2015
  • Summary: This screen has done well by me. It has great colors and is easily color calibrated. I use it for gaming and for editing photos. I don't notice any ghosting while gaming even though it only has 7ms response time.
  • Pros: Large screen Beautiful resolution Easily color calibrated
  • Cons: Can get warm little power hungry

Nothing says wow like a 30" monitor

Kmill, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: This is a great monitor although was quite expensive. If you can afford it I would recommend it, although the 27" monitors are a 3rd of the price and almost as nice.

Beautiful and works fantastically with laptop Display Port

Brandon B., Newegg
2 May 2013
  • Summary: I do not play any games that require high frame rates except perhaps Street Fighter IV Arcade... but I am a software developer and the advantages of this monitor are substantial. I have two samsung 23" HD monitors turned vertically on the left and right and this created a whole new work experience...
  • Pros: Beautiful monitor with great viewing angles and consistent color. Extreme real estate but manageable as the pixels per inch of 2560x1600 is easier to handle at 30" than 27". Note, I was surprised to find that it INCLUDES a Display Port cable in addition to a DVI cable -- I had already ordered one...
  • Cons: It is a bit pricey but for work the ROI is still very good. With discount I got it for $980 here at Newegg and don't regret it at all. The CCFL based display does take a little bit to reach full brightness as it warms up. Noticeable with my TN panels that pop up just about instantly, but it's rea...

Really nice monitor

Original Vidiot, Amazon
21 March 2013
  • Summary: So far, I really like my new 30 inch Dell. I'm not an expert and can't critique the monitor in great detail as some have (edge lighting issues and dead pixels etc.). To me, it either works or it doesn't. I don't use it in a darkened room, just a home office.

Excellent Monitor that is showing its age

Daniel M., Newegg
30 December 2012
  • Summary: The Dell U3011 has been out for over a year now, other companies are releasing LED backlight monitors but most of them are not 10 bit color. Many say that 10 bit color is not needed and most people don't have the hardware to support it anyway.
  • Pros: High connectivity, Dual HDMI, Dual DVI, VGA, DP and composite connectors. Has Active and passive USB extension from PC and xD/SD/MS and MMC right on the side of the monitor. Fine dot pitch, IPS panel. Factory calibrated and supports Adobe RGB and 10bit color. Fully electronic touch controls and 2...
  • Cons: Expensive! CCFL and not LED backlight. If switching between inputs sometimes the U3011 will not see signal and requires poweroff/on sequence to wake it back up. No rotate to verticle support. The monitor requires a warm up period before maximum color accuracy is achieved (about 5 minutes). This i...

Monitor is huge but...

Joshua Z., Newegg
16 December 2012
  • Pros: This monitor pushes the crazy resolution of 2560x1600. This is extremely useful for doing things such as graphics or photo editing. The colors on the monitor are fairly accurate.
  • Cons: The monitor's backlight bleeds through in the corners which can really pull away from the monitor's quality. On my particular monitor the bottom left backlight bleed is the worst and there is a little bit on the bottom right but none anywhere else. This seems to be a common problem with this moni...

Very nice but runs a bit too hot

Edwin F., Newegg
27 September 2012
  • Summary: Yes, I do have central AC. I can clearly feel the heat even a foot from the front of the screen, and we won't even talk about the top vent. Reminds me a bit of the old CRTs.
  • Pros: - Great display - Nice OSD, connectors, etc
  • Cons: - Quite expensive - Generates a LOT of heat

.......

stephen b., Newegg
19 August 2012
  • Summary: not gonna give it less than 4 eggs because it worked.but not worth it. 1080p on a 30in screen looks a little stretched, 1600p doesn't but 1600p looks completely identical to 1080p.
  • Pros: the large screen had plenty of room for many programs running at one time. i went from a 2ms 1080p screen to this 7ms screen and i didn't even tell the MS difference.
  • Cons: price, this thing was not worth over $1000 more like $500 didn't make games look any better at 2560x1600p only league of legends looked better. games like COD mwf3 looks weird things were to small on the screen then way 2 big. most games are not designed for 1600p cut frame rates in half. honestl...

Dead on arrival, but Amazon made the difference!

Stephen Furr, Amazon
5 August 2012
  • Summary: I read that this display is the best 30" on the market. Unfortunately mine was DOA. It will power up, and I actually get the "Dell" logo for a couple of seconds. However, then it goes dark and nothing will make it work.
