Summary: Purchased both the U3011 and the U3014, the U3014 had a super sales price at the time. I received the U3011 first so I had a good amount of time to spend with it. The U3011's older technology was a bit of a turn off but after using it for a while I got used to it really fast. The U3011 is a beautiful monitor with great color (once it warms up). 4K content looks absolutely fantastic, as does 1080p movies and high resolution photos.
Summary: Really happy with the monitor. Yea it is kind of pricey but it out weighs the benefit of how crisp this monitor is. It is really nice on your eyes and you have a ton of desktop real estate to work with.
Summary: Perfect monitor to optimize your workspace. If you have more room, install a couple of Ultrasharp 2007's in Portrait mode on either side for a whopping 4960x1600 workspace. You will need a couple of powerful video cards to get the best performance.
Summary: Dell's monitors cannot be beat for quality and price. Yes, Apple and some other high-end vendors have slightly better specs, but you don't pay the ransom money for that slight bump in quality.
Summary: I was looking for a monitor to use with my MS Surface Pro 128GB when I am not on the road; look no further, folks, I found it! I connected the tablet via the mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort and the screen powered on in the native resolution of 2560x1600. As an added bonus, I did not realize this monitor provide outputs for 5.1 pass-through for my 5.1 Creative Labs setup. This was a pleasant surprise as I was prepared to buy a 2.1 setup to plug directly into my tablet.
Summary: Honestly, I can't say enough about this monitor. This thing is, in a single word, amazing...no...beautiful. Seem, you can't even get it across in one word. Really, this monitor provides a level of detail I never expected. It is expensive, but in my opinion, the clarity and the real estate I have is worth every penny. I am playing Skyrim on it and the resolution provides detail I never would have believed I could see in a video game.
Replaced 42'' TV as my primary desktop display. Extremely happy.

Summary: I was deciding between a 27'' and a 30'' computer monitor that ran at 2560 resolution. And I was downgrading in size from a 42'' TV that ran at 1920x1080. I ultimately chose the 30'' for these reasons. I wanted a 16x10 ratio. I was afraid a 27'' would feel too small, I was afraid a 27'' at 2560x1440 text would be too small making zoom mandatory. Card reader and USB slots are something I would use. I received the display in 3 days, I have only had it for a week.
