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.
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.
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.
Great panel and features, ruined by Dell manufacturing.

Summary: I really wanted to like this monitor. And my first impressions with this monitor were positive, being that the colors around the center were among the best I'd ever seen, and with a factory calibration providing sub-3 delta-e, it's hard to not be impressed with that.
Won't work with Display Port, still a cross-hatch problem
Chris Parker, Amazon
20 February 2014
Summary: 2 problems: #1: Took unit out of the box, plugged in to Display Port (with Mini DP to DP cord from my Mac Book Pro (2011)), and it worked OK - ONCE. Now the Dell U3014 won't detect any incoming signal on the Display Port. It does work fine with other inputs, but at lower resolution.
Summary: Look at the number of folks reporting the same issue. The monitors being sold are revision A1 and A2. A quick google search will show you that these were faulty monitors from Dell. A3 is the proper version. Now, you might be thinking "the seller says it's A3".
Summary: The monitor I received had an obvious quarter inch raised scratch in the center of the panel and should never have made it outside the Dell factory. This was not a problem with packaging or shipping as the monitor was carefully double boxed and there were no signs of stress in the packaging.
Amazon description says the monitor is version A03 but I received a version A02.

Summary: I placed the order 12/22/2013, received it on 12/31 and initiated the return process after checking the revision on the box label. Another label had been placed over the revision on the box label but you can still read A02. I'm not opening the box.
Summary: With a black background, there is a lot of light intruding from the corners. When a light colored background is shown, the corners look gray. Definitely a step back from my old 24" DELL2407WFPHC.
