DP in doesn't work but Mini-DP does

Shiffon P., Newegg
16 May 2014
  • Summary: I tried to drive these monitors with a desktop that has been running 6 Dell U27xx and U30xx monitors for years. The system has Mini-DP outputs, so using the Dell-supplied cable (Mini-DP x DP), I had to use the DP-in on the monitors. No-go. After some experimentation, I figured out that the MINI DP in on the monitors works, so I was able to solve the problem by buying mini-DP x mini-DP cables to replace the Dell-supplied cables.
  • Pros: Good monitor overall, but no real substantive improvement over the former model, and prices now low enough to justify the many problems I and others here had with this model. I have several U3011s (prev. model) and like them better
  • Cons: DisplayPort input doesn't work on either of two monitors recently purchased; Dell support useless as usual.

A01 still, backlight bleed, pulsing colors.

IzDlang, Amazon
26 November 2013
  • Summary: Just got it today from Amazon, and it is A01 manufactured April 2013. I took the chance and hooked it up anyhow. Lots of backlight bleed on the corners, especially the lower right. Started up a game on it.. and it kinda pulses light to dark, think I saw somewhere where that is one of the things that the A01 does as part of the defect.

How is this considered a pro-level monitor?

B. Groulx, Amazon
17 October 2013
  • Summary: I made the mistake of ordering this substandard monitor. The value for the money is NOT there if you are looking for colour accuracy and responsive calibration. There is NO brightness uniformity. Is it a high-resolution large panel? Yes. If you were a casual user, you'd love this monitor... but you could get another brand for half the price. I thought I was paying for something I could rely on for accurate photo-editing.

A few flaws

panpeus, Amazon
17 July 2013
  • Summary: Length:: 0:28 Mins It randomly starts flickering like seen in this video, it also severe back light bleeding. the touch panel on the right side is not very responsive, i have to press it several times (3-5 times) with my entire finger (instead of the tip). For the price of this monitor I do not believe this is acceptable.

Could be a Great Monitor if Dell Corrects a Serious Flaw

William O. Wood "Bill Wood", Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought a Dell U3014 Ultrasharp Monitor based on my experience with a pair of five-year-old Dell 3008WFP monitors and a brand new Dell U2713H monitor. In my opinion the U2713H is the best monitor Dell ever made for professional use. It was so good that I chose the U3014 to replace my old 3008WFP monitors. The specifications are identical with the only difference being the larger size.

it's good tending to mediocre.. and it failed after a few weeks of use.

  • Summary: I also own an Ultrasharp U3011 (the model this U3014 replaces) and use the old 30" Apple Cinema Displays at work, so I'm comparing it with those. The Good: - thinner - runs cooler - more energy efficient - more modern ports - looks crispier than the old U3011 and Apple Cinema Displays, mainly cause at last they are using a less aggressive antiglare-coating. The Bad: - the LED "backlight" is really the cheaper technique of LED sidelight.

Solider Monitor - Auf den ersten Blick

Das ist egal, Amazon
13 June 2014
  • Summary: + Die größe + Der aktuelle Preis (obwohl der noch immer teuer ist in der Relation) + Drehbar Höhenverstellbar + Ruhiges Bild (kein PWM) + Großes Farbspektrum + DVI-D + USB Hub + Vernünftiger Stromverbrach - Pixeldichte Ich habe es zwar schon geahnt, dennoch ist die Dichte der Pixel nicht zufriedenstellend, eher ausreichend. Zuvor hatte ich einen 26" 1920x1200 von Iiyama, ein Billigteil mit TN, er war eine Notlösung die aber länger hielt als gedacht.

Leider Helle Ecken

Urschwabe, Amazon
5 December 2013
  • Summary: Ich will so einen 30" Monitor schon seit sie auf dem Markt sind. Der Reiz daran ist für mich der Immense Platz und der geringe Stromverbrauch den diese 30" AH-IPS Monitore haben. Abgehalten haben mich immer Probleme anderer Nutzer die auch schon genug beschrieben wurden. 55W braucht der bei Amazon bestellte U3014 und das Bild bei hellen Inhalten ist prima. Soweit so gut. Was mir daran nun mal gar nicht gefällt sind die hellen Ecken.
