Great Build Quality!!

  • Excerpt: Purchased 3 of these DELLS to replace my aging fleet of 5 Samsung 305Ts. I use these 30 inchers primarily for NVIDIA surround gaming. I have these paired to a high end PC set up. First of all, I love these DELLs for the bright and sharp colors they produce. Although advertised as having 6ms G to G pixel time, I notice some significant ghosting compared to my old Samsungs.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors

Hate at first sight

  • Excerpt: I must state that I just got this monitor so this is my first impression and not my final verdict.I just hate this monitor. The colors are over saturated and horrible. It's gonna take a spider to properly adjust this thing. But that's just the beginning. The colors change as you change brightness. So it's gonna take multiple profiles for various brigtness settings. This is gonna be a pain in the derrière.
  • Pros: None

Really Nice!

  • Excerpt: I replaced two older 23" monitors with this one big bad boy. Though I am still going through some adjustments and withdrawals not having 2 side by side, the quality of this one is great. I don't see any light-bleed or dead pixels and the colors are bright and crisp. Love having all the input modes to choose from too.

Don't buy - buggy product and bad customer service

Shawn, Amazon
21 July 2014
  • Summary: This monitor has serious design defect that allows real live biological bugs to get into between the panes of the screen! And Dell’s bad customer service refused to help. I purchased this monitor less than a year ago. Recently, when I saw a bug moving around on my screen, I was really concerned about my PC having a computer virus that draws the bug on the screen.

Beautiful and big (but light!)

  • Excerpt: I've wanted to move up to a 30" monitor for a long time, and the Dell 3014 has finally made it possible. The high quality IPS panel, LED backlighting, sleek look, and low price came together in a great product. Add to the fact that it's only about 15 pounds, and I didn't even need the heaviest-duty monitor arm to mount it on. In portrait mode, I can see an entire page of orchestra score perfectly clearly!

I was tired of the iMac display.

9 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I loved the 2560 x 1600 resolution of my old cinema display but the technology was getting old and the color bothered me. I even tried the new Mac Pro and a 55 inch 4k tv but the 30 mhz refresh rate was bothering me. I bought this monitor and all is good in the world. While the iMac has a beautiful display I always felt it had to much contrast and I lost a lot of detail.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Love the size, Price Is Great, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
  • Cons: Don't Have One

Very Nice Monitor

13 June 2014
  • Excerpt: This monitor was bought to display images at a tradeshow from an older macbook pro and then to sit beside my Apple Cinema 30-inch Display. As much as I like my apple screen the new dell will replace it as my primary monitor and the apple will move to my right. Great resolution and color havent color calibrated it yet but from the factoy its calibration is accurate. Adjusts phisical are good.

Serious quality control issues, even on A03!

Raphael Castaneda, Amazon

  • Summary: As someone who tests consumer devices for a living, I'm quite curious how Dell managed to print out a detailed calibration test report with my monitor's serial number on it and then ship me a panel that does not turn on. If that wasn't enough, I call Dell's "24/7" tech support line to hear a recording that says "the department you are trying to reach is closed". I did not pay this much for a top of the line monitor to be lied to. Get it together Dell.
