1 out of 5 eggsBuy any other brand

Pros: Color depth

Cons: 2 biggest issues - Made by Dell. Serviced by Dell. This monitor developed issues with flicker and pixel streaking within 5 months of purchase. I spent 16+ hours with Dell support trying to troubleshoot and get a replacement. 2 months later I got a replacement that was a cheaper, inferior model. I am now many hours into Dell's support transfer games again and still do not have an equivalent replacement. This is easily the single most frustrating customer service experience I have ever encountered. I cannot recommend that anyone purchase anything from Dell. I certainly will never do so again. If you do, you better hope that you never need support....because you are not likely to get anything but a run-around.

Other Thoughts: Bad bad bad bad product and company (Dell)

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality Control from Dell

Pros: The tech specs were nice and it was on sale for $649 at the time.

Cons: The monitor had a blue tint to everything. I was not able to resolve with adjusting settings. Dell tech support troubleshooting steps could not resolve either.

The gamma test spec sheet that they included with the monitor even showed that the blue levels were abnormally high.

Other Thoughts: Dell was not helpful in providing a replacement. After going back and forth with them about the issue they agreed to send me a replacement. However, they shipped it to the wrong person and then wouldn't send me a new one, since the package was already delivered to someone else. It wasn't even in the same state as me. So I ended up returning this to newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsBright and crisp

Pros: I have had this monitor for over a year. No dead pixels. Bright and crisp text. The right side buttons have a quick setting to switch between active inputs so you don't have to dig though layers of menus to switch between computers. I flip between a PC and Macbook with ease. Fully rotates which is amazing for working in long documents or email on occasion. Plenty of range in the tilt and height adjustment. I bought my own for work because this monitor was so much better than company provided monitors.

Monitored used for software development, Adobe, and Office. I don't do professional graphics or imaging work so cannot comment on this monitor versus the premiere panel. For my use, color is outstanding.

Cons: Expensive, occasionally on sale at newegg.

3 out of 5 eggsBuzzing noise

Pros: High resolution

Cons: The monitor makes a buzzing noise when displaying high contract images, like a spreadsheet or text document or a webpage with lots of black and white text. Over the course of 2 months I dealt with Dell customer service and they have exchanged out the monitor 3 times. I had to jump through lots of hoops with Dell customer service to get them to exchange the monitor each time. All 3 of the monitors I received has made the buzzing noise. Unfortunately the period for returning the monitor to NewEgg for a refund has elapsed, or else I would.

A word of caution about Display port and Windows 7. I have multiple computers connected to the monitor through a KVM switch. When I switch between computers Windows redraws the entire screen and stacks all the open windows and icons into the upper left corner. I had to revert to using DVI-D, which works as expected with Windows and still provides the 2560x1440 resolution but the cables are much more bulky and difficult to manage.

Other Thoughts: I've had several Dell monitors. This is the first time I've had an issue with them. I won't be buying a monitor from Dell again.

5 out of 5 eggsThis one is a beast!

Pros: I wish I could give this monitor 6 stars. Or 10. This image quality is surreal. Switching from a regular 1080p monitor to U2713h is like trading up from Yaris to Tesla.
Great job Dell!

Cons: None whatsoever.

2 out of 5 eggsDell Support Horror

Pros: Worked OK for a few monitors.

Cons: I purchased this monitor in August of 2013. I installed it with no trouble, and it worked for four months. Then the right side of the screen turned green. Kinda weird, not something I've seen before (and I've seen a lot -- I've been in I.T. for 10 years), but it's obviously some kind of hardware failure.

By this time, it's out of Newegg's normal return policy, but "no problem", it's under Dell's 3-year warranty, right? Well... Maybe. I called Dell, got sent to the wrong department, then sent to what may have been the right department, but they told me that this monitor (which I purchased new from Newegg) is registered to a different company. They won't do a thing for me until I get on their web site and "transfer ownership". I did, in fact, get on their web site. "Ownership Transfer" is in a really weird place, consistent with Dell's long-standing "we don't want anyone to actually find anything on our web site" policy. For anyone unlucky enough to be following in my footsteps, ignore the main content of the page, even though it looks like what you want, go to the top nav bar, under "Warranty", and choose "Ownership Transfer" there.

The "Ownership Transfer" page asks for info about the previous owner. Of course, I don't know anything about any previous owner. I bought the monitor new, remember. I put "n/a" in the required fields, then entered my info. It tells me that the request "has been submitted to the appropriate Dell department" and that it will take 10-15 days to process.

So, yeah, now I'm waiting 10-15 days for Dell to process an electronically submitted change request for their electronic database. What are they supposed to be doing? Phoning whoever they mistakenly have in their database to find out if I've stolen the monitor? Filing a police report? What?

Meanwhile, everything I put on the right side of the monitor has this weird green tinge to it. Thank goodness it's not completely nonfunctional, or I'd have to go buy a new one (from a different manufacturer, thank you very much) just so I could continue working.

Other Thoughts: The monitor was ok at first, picture was nothing spectacular, but ok. However, given the lack of 1) Quality, 2) Warranty and 3) Support, I'd recommend not taking the risk.

4 out of 5 eggsFinally Found a Good Monitor

Pros: - Amazing Colors
- Great Configuration Options
- Decent Black Level Performance

Cons: - IPS glow (typical of all IPS monitors)
- Not the most responsive menu buttons

Other Thoughts: Well it took me a long time and a lot of RMAs, but I finally got a great monitor. I first ordered an Asus PB278Q and it had a stuck pixel. Sent it back and decided to step up to the next tier with a PA289Q. It had a dark spot so I RMA'ed it. Got another one with some SERIOUS light bleed. So I decided to go back to Dell (I've used some Dell monitors in the past) and I ordered a U2713H. The first one arrived and had some mild to moderate light bleed in the bottom right corner. At this price point I simply wasn't able to accept anything less than perfection. One more RMA and I got the monitor I am currently using. Moral of the story? It's tough to get a good one. But once you do, this class of monitor and the U2713H in particular provides great performance.

The U2713H is fantastic. The colors really pop, the screen is really sharp, and there is hardly any ghosting or IPS glow (although there is some glow-- just the nature of the technology). I use this monitor primarily for general purpose web browsing, watching videos, and playing video games. I'd consider myself more of a "sightseeing" gamer than an "FPS" gamer. I don't care about the raw speed, I'd rather see some really beautiful eye-popping colors in a game like Skyrim. It works great for all of these applications.

The menu buttons on the monitor are pretty cool. They're touch sensitive and invisible. Move your hand close to the power button and one of the buttons lights up. Tap it and it launches the on screen menu. One of the best implementations for a menu system on a monitor I've seen (and, as you can tell from my comments above, I've tested at least two other 27" 1440p monitors). I even prefer it to Asus's "joystick" menu button implementation. However, it's not perfect. The touch sensitive buttons are a bit finicky. However, for how often I use the menu, they work just fine. Also, I like that the main power button is GENTLY lit with a white LED. Many other monitors use a blue LED and they are BRIGHT!! This one is a nice level and is not distracting even when gaming in low light situations. The power button LED can even be switched off. Nice touch.

The connectivity is good. Everything you'd need. Displayport, MiniDisplayport, DVI, HDMI. It comes with one Displayport to MiniDisplayport cable, which I thought was odd at first, but, since the monitor has both inputs, no matter what output your video card has, you're set (my video card has a standard Displayport out so I am using the monitor's MiniDisplayport).

Finally, the USB 3.0 hub works well. I have my keyboard plugged into it (corsair k70) and my mouse plugged into my keyboard. No issues. I can get to the BIOS through this setup and the mouse and keyboard work just fine in BIOS. I haven't yet tested the card reader because I don't have any cards.

In sum, if you're looking for a 27" 1440p monitor with 10 bit color, this is a good choice if you are ready to RMA until you get one that is pe

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent for color graphics

Pros: Excellent color gamut. Red and greens are vivid, thanks to the BG LED backlighting and IPS panel. It's easily noticed when compared to the Dell U2713hm, which uses the standard W-LED (used in most new LCD panels) and has washed-out reds/greens.

It's just about as good color-wise as my old Dell 2408wfp (still working well after 5+years), which uses fluorescent backlighting with a PVA panel.

No dead pixels.
Very bright.
Slightly cheaper than most wide-gamut LED-backlight displays.
Solid construction.

Cons: The USB 3.0 hub did not work, nor did the card reader. This is a common problem with these displays, but it is not a problem for me as I do not require the hub.

The touch-sensitive buttons are bad. They are annoying in that are finicky in how they are touched. It's gotten better as I've gotten used to them, but they seem to be a gimmick.

Blue trails are sometimes visible when scrolling black text on a white background. It's not ideal for web browsing in the regard.

OK for some FPS gaming, but not extremely high frame rate. Skyrim looked great on it.

Other Thoughts: This is a great monitor if you need a full color gamut (I use it for working with scientific images). It's big, bright, high-resolution, and cheaper than similar monitors. However, if you're just doing web browsing/office applications, casual to moderate gaming, and amateur image editing, consider a less expensive W-LED-based display.

With Windows 7, you'll need to use the included drivers rather than anything Windows provides, if you want to get the full 2560x1440 resolution.

5 out of 5 eggsDell Ultrasharp 27

Pros: Great monitor for higher end uses.
Considerably lighter weight than previous 8 year old 1000 dollar Samsung considering it's a 3 inch bigger screen.
The Use of LED backlighting also means it does not get as hot as the older fluorescent backlighting.

Cons: No cons, it's an all-round better monitor than the 8 year old Samsung I had, and it was near top of the line when I purchased it.

Other Thoughts: Primary uses:
Video encoding, photo manipulation, and watching movies.
*No gaming, so I cannot comment on that aspect.
Not the absolute top of the line professional use monitor, but it is more than sufficient for my said usages.

Purchased direct from Dell, it was a tad bit cheaper.
