Excerpt: The primary use for this monitor is professional photography and graphic reproduction. Set up easliy on my 2.8 Retina 15" MBP. Came with 3 input cables to fit multiple system requirements including my mac. On screen calibration adjustments for brightness, color space, rgb among other things made it possible to take advantage of the advanced features in the x-rite i1 display software/hardware for a pro level calibration of my screen.
Pros: Adjustable, Buttons On Front, Cables Included, Easy To Set Up, Instant Accurate Color, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Stable stand
Excerpt: I have been searching for systems that can be controlled like this for a long time. The U2714 is not as good. I found that I needed to upgrade my power supply and video card to be able to handle the video throughput at the full resolution. The video card required that I have a full size tower to be able to install the video card. That is big. Fortunately I have a large office to have these four monitors and a 5th for software control input.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Summary: I had heard from other Mac users that the Dell monitors were identical in color and quality to Apple's Cinema Displays, and this Mac user can corroborate those opinions first-hand now: right out of the box, without altering any settings, the picture quality and color and color calibration are identical (to my eyes, anyway!) to an Apple Cinema Display. I'm a photographer so I need something accurate, and my eyes are sensitive to color casts.
Summary: I was very disappointed. This monitor is marketed to photographers however the colors on the screen significantly shift toward blue/gray as the viewing angle changes even slightly away from straight on. When editing photographs it is critical that colors are solid from corner to corner. Even if I were not a photographer I would not be happy with this monitor as the color shift is so pronounced.
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
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.
Summary: Nice monitors. I was replacing two U3011 monitors. Side by side I couldn't tell any large difference in quality. The U3014's are much lighter, so easier to move around my desk. They also run cooler so they don't heat up my office as much. Overall, I like these just as much as the U3011's, but I left these at work and took the U3011's home where I will use them for photographic work, gaming, and the usual.
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.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Don't buy - buggy product and bad customer service
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.
