Summary: Great monitor - I've had it for a few years now, and the image is ultra-clear (2560x1600 is fantastic), color reproduction is great (I work in photography), and the margins around the screen are not too thick / ugly / glossy / etc. The stand also has a nice wide base for stability.
Summary: I can easily compare, side by side in portrait mode, two 8.5x11 pages. Text/video quality is extremely good and with the Dell sound bar attached, you have a great viewing/listening device. Highly recommend the product.
Summary: I purchased this monitor and it is amazing. I no longer need my glasses at 60 to read the monitor. The only complaint is I called back a week later to get another one for the Computer I do detailed work on and the price had went up over 100 dollars.
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.
Summary: Big, bright and mostly pleasant. The matte display is welcome if you're like me and are tethered to using glossy laptop displays for work most of the time. I picked this up after getting frustrated with digital photography over the past ten years.
Summary: I was debating whether to get a multi-monitor set up or a cinema display. I have a MBA, but also use MBP and PC laptops to connect, so I wanted something with a variety of connection options, and something with a resolution great enough to take advantage of the high end video/graphics cards on the...
Summary: Most everything about this monitor is awesome. Lots of inputs, excellent picture, anti-glare coating. One thing that did disappoint me is the level of HDMI support. It only supports up to 1920x1080 over HDMI, not actual HDMI 1.3 which can support the full 2560x1600 native resolution.
Summary: After much consternation about dropping one large on a monitor, and a ton of research, I decided on the Dell UltraSharp U3011. As a busy freelance writer, my computer is what props up my mortal remains and my desk is my living space for most waking hours, so I tend to choose the best quality I can...
Nice monitor, but the same color quality can be had for much less

Summary: When viewed separately, the U3011 is a great monitor: excellent colors, color space specific presets (including AdobeRGB), large screen area. For me the problem was the comparison to my 5 year old 24" Dell panel.
