Rev03. Works with 2011 Macbook Pro 15" no problem. VERY questionable QC.

Aerfally, Amazon
6 May 2014
  • Summary: The monitor works with 2011 Macbook Pro 15" 1GB 6750M graphics card no problem (use mini-display to display port cable included, 'Google force RGB output mac' for needed code -- alternatively just set sharpness to 0). VERY questionable QC of the display panel. First panel I received had a dead pixel. Second panel has a bright, always-on stuck pixel. This is a $1,000+ monitor.

Looks like refurbished

  • Summary: I have 4 of them and they are great. The last 2 I purchased in April 2014 look like they were refurbished by Dell. The boxes were sealed but the cables inside were unpacked and dirty. One of them went bad after 2 days. Yellow vertical line and black horizontal line appeared - will exchange. They are great, if not defective.

Decent monitor

  • Excerpt: I now have a dual 30" monitor set-up for video editing, DVD authoring, HTML coding, and other media applications. I only went with this monitor due to the fact that one monitor was already a Dell 30" (model was no longer available) but this one does the job. The first monitor we received fizzled out after only four hours of use. B&H exchanged the monitor and I was back up and running in about a week.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Vivid Colors

Satisfactory

Allen, Amazon

  • Summary: This monitor has a mixed history, so like others I hesitated (a LOT). But, the 30" monitor space seems pretty limited. I am a pro programmer and need the pixels so it came down to this or the NEC PA301. I've been using it for a week and it's been fine. The monitor definitely has some backlight/IPS glow (don't know the technical term), including a "hot spot" of bleed in the top-right edge, a little off the corner.

Brilliant display but disappointing customer service from Amazon

  • Summary: This monitor was purchased January 2014. It is Rev A03. It is connected to a Lenovo T530 laptop PC and docking station via the display port interface. The T530 has a NVIDIA NVS 5400M graphic card that is rated to drive the monitor at its full resolution of 2560x1600. The system is used primarily for office applications. I am very satisfied with the overall system's performance. The first U3014 I received had a string of dark pixels about 1/4 inch in length.

Make sure you order (and receive) the revision number that you want of this product: they're not all the same.

  • Summary: I love the A3 version of the monitor. However, I expected the A3 version (Rev A03) as the Amazon.com description previously stated (12/9/2013, 4th bullet in the description: A3 Version Monitor). I ordered from Amazon, not the dealers that are "fulfilled by" Amazon, but received the A2 (Rev A02) in the mail. What???? That resulted in contacting support and getting a replacement, which too was the A2 version. I wanted to write this review to warn people.

Seems like Amazon forgot to get rid of the defective ones...

  • Summary: Update again: It seems the display still has at least one of the problems- it just went blank again after starting up Windows and before showing the login screen. I may have to send this one back too... Update: I just received my replacement and although it is also a revision A01 it seems to have none of the issues mentioned below. Overall a great display. Rating changed from 2 to 4 stars (minus 1 for the hassle of having to send it back and get a replacement).

Cost not = to value

warthorn, Amazon
16 November 2013
  • Summary: Returned this monitor. Got it at $1k and at that price, the fidgety touch sensitive buttons and especially the excessive motion blur made it not worth the money. I downgraded to the 2713H and saved $200. The 30" definitely feels a lot bigger but with the various flaws I note in my review of the U2713H and flaws you'll find when reading professional reviews of this monitor, it was not worth the cost.

Great Monitor - early problems

turban, Amazon
24 June 2013
  • Summary: Great picture - can't beat the size. I had problems out of the box with the menu system not working consistently. If you want to change inputs (ie multiple computers) you need this to work. Contacted dell and was told they won't help because it was purchased from Amazon - no suggestions, no ideas, just out of luck. Good thing it did not work out of the box - apparently they won't honor the warranty when its not purchased directly from dell.
