TOP Product and no wake-up flaw - after DP cable exchange

MyMac2007, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: The monitor is innovative and in my opinion a TOP Product. However, it had in my view only one flaw: having sometimes issues with the wake-up process. In a lot of forums I could read that this should have been solved by the later firmware (A01), but later on people comment this would not help with Macs. Anyway, I am using a Mac and do have the Dell 2414q with firmware A00.

No MacBook Pro retina screen, but good enough for now

Paul Cantrell, Amazon
17 August 2014
  • Summary: Since getting a Retina MacBook, my venerable old 24" Dell had been driving me crazy with its non-retina fuziness. I've been on the lookout for an external monitor to match the stunning clarity of the laptop. This … is not that monitor. It is, however, good enough for now — especially at the price. The anti-glare coating undermines the high resolution sharpness. Compared to my MBP’s screen, everything is just a tiny bit fuzzy at the edges.

Not quite good enough

My Pen Name Here, Amazon
13 August 2014
  • Summary: The positives first: 4k is bloody fantastic for work. Not quite as sharp as a Retina Display (the pixel density is a bit lower) but it completely transforms the desktop. One can still see the individual pixels (barely) but it's light-years ahead of a similar-size Full-HD display. It's pretty much plug and play with a MacBook Pro. It works right away over either DisplayPort or HDMI.

Be aware that this monitor might not work with your computer

  • Summary: I just purchased this monitor, and wasted too many hours trying to get the maximum resolution it was advertising. 3840 x 2160 at 60hz through DP 1.2 was not achievable. With the DP 1.2 enabled on the monitor's end, using the provided DP cable, I was able to get the max resolution at 30hz, and it looked horrible. The only reason I gave 2 stars was for the picture quality. Otherwise, it would have been 1 star.

Fantastic monitor overall

  • Summary: Fantastic monitor overall. There are some issues with waking from sleep and using the MacBook Pro in clamshell mode. It seems to be working mostly now, but when I first connected it there were some weird issues going on. Is there a way to rotate the display to 180 in OSX ? Doesn't appear so...

Quality monitor with some major issues for media and gaming.

Mr. Alphonse "harmattan", Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: Without a doubt, one of Dell's high-quality Ultrasharps. Great connectivity, very sturdy, great stand that is adjustable in all directions. Color accuracy is superb. Pixel density is as good as it gets in monitors by a long shot. Games look amazing (when they actually do run at 4k and 60hz). The design is tried and true, very similar to my old 3008WFP.

Don't buy it

Hans-peter Krueger, Amazon
30 June 2014
  • Summary: Don't think this monitor is a good choice at the moment. I sent the monitor back to Dell a few weeks ago. There is a well known issue that the monitor does not wake up anymore from power saving mode. You have to manually turn the monitor off and on again which is very irritating (at least for me) because it for some reason resizes all open windows as well. Anyway, the sleep issue is a well known bug which can fixed with a firmware upgrade.
