5 out of 5 eggsThe best I have seen

Pros: This is the best monitor I've found for my uses - World of Warcraft, Microsoft Office, and web browsing. Not a hardcore video / picture editor or photographer (or gamer, as you can tell). I got this monitor because it was the largest 16:10 ratio monitor I could find, and I like the idea of a monitor manufactured for color accuracy, even though I don't plan to calibrate color on it. I don't like the 16:9 ratio for anything other than watching video, and black bars don't bother me. 16:10 is taller for less vertical scrolling and better top-to-bottom visibility in WoW.

The size is nice if you're eyes are starting to go... With this size, and resolution, you can make text bigger in browsers and Office so that you can read it easily (and without strain) but still get lots of page space on the screen, with not a lot of scrolling. I will admit to using bigger fonts and doing a lot of side-by-side document work, and this monitor has the resolution and screen area to make this very, very easy.

I received a revision A05 from Newegg. Very, very bright. Onscreen menu consists of 4 touch buttons on right of monitor and the menu goes into far more depth then I need or understand.

The only adjustments I made after unboxing were to adjust the brightness and contrast down to fit my darkish workspace. More sophisticated users will be able to tune the monitor to their satisfaction, I have zero doubt.

I wanted to purchase this monitor before 16:10 monitors disappear completely... I am disappointed that this very functional aspect ratio appears to be headed for extinction. I suppose a 35"-ish 4K monitor will be a replacement in the far future, but I just really like the height and visibility. If you're fuzzy on the functionality, browse the same website on a 16:9 android tablet and an Apple iPad. For me, the taller iPad is better, more visibility and less scrolling.

If you're on the fence between something like this monitor, and a much less expensive 27" monitor, consider how monitors amortize... How old is your current monitor? The one before that? I plan on keeping this monitor a long, long time. I put mine behind a good uninterruptible power supply along with my main computer. Yes, spend money on a UPS, it helps.

I waited a few weeks between setting up this monitor to qualify this review, and after weeks of heavy use, I can very much recommend this monitor. For the heavy computer user, I would encourage you to stretch your budget and slightly overspend on this monitor. I am certain you will be delighted.

Cons: For the nit-pickers, there is a very slight light bleed on the lower left side of screen when there is a black screen. If there is any image (even a dark image) on the screen, it is not noticeable to me. I sit close to the monitor and it changes intensity when I change my angle of view, if you sit farther away you may not notice it at all. I have a dark workspace and have turned down the brightness / contrast, if you have a bright workspace and turn this incredibly bright monitor up, it has a possibility of bothering you.

Or not. I had to think of SOMETHING for a con.

Other Thoughts: Paired this monitor with the Egrotron 45-295-026 also from Newegg. This monitor is on the outer limit of what this arm will do but is still sufficient as long as you have a strong table surface. Very much recommend it.

And get a good UPS to protect your investment.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Perfect Monitor (so far)

Pros: Crystal clear, amazing color and brightness.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I love this amazing Dell monitor. It seems perfect and is what I have always hoped for in a large monitor. I have it sitting next to a five year old 30 inch HP that cost me over twice as much and is 50% heavier and bulkier and it is just shocking to me just how much better everything looks on the newer monitor.

I don't even want to look at the old HP monitor anymore it's that bad in comparison.

I'll probably give away the older monitor -- an HP LP3065 -- and buy one or perhaps even two more of these Dell U3014 monitors once the price comes down a bit. I develop software full-time and can use all the screen real estate I can get.

If you're in the market for a large HD monitor with 2560 x 1600 resolution and spend a lot of time at your computer, do yourself a favor and consider buying the Dell U3014.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor, glad I got it

Pros: As of the date I write this review Newegg is shipping out A4 revisions of this monitor (this is good). Huge screen, like an IMAX for my desk. Color, contrast, image quality all excellent for my needs out of the box. Heartily recommended.

Cons: Brightness at 50% (the out of the box default) is WAY too bright for my basement desktop space. I have it literally turned down to 1%. Doesn't include a DP to DP cable (just a mini-DP to DP). Requires a decent mid-range video card for any modern 3D shooters to be remotely playable. If you like eye-candy then get a higher-end video card to go with this.

Other Thoughts: If you've done any internet research, you'd see that when this monitor first came out it had a lot of quality control issues. That's the A1 version. The second version, A2, was released a few months later in order to improve upon some of the widely complained off issues. While it fixed some problems, it added others. From what I've read online it wasn't until the "third time's the charm" A3 release that everybody was pretty happy with what they received. Now as of today's date that I'm writing this Newegg is shipping the A4 release. I had absolutely no issues with my unit and am very happy with my purchase. Feel free to look around online for some expert, in-depth reviews discussing the cailbration, etc.

1 out of 5 eggsMove up to 4K, avoid this mess.

Pros: one 2560x1600 display does not require SLI

Cons: Dell QC is shot to hell.

Other Thoughts: I own and treasure my Dell U3007, so in spite of mixed reviews I gave Dell another chance at my business for a second display to make a matched set of 30" displays. The U3011 I purchased (2nd) I returned because it had major image problems, it was so bad that it was unusable, the next U3014 came all beat up thanks to UPS (3rd). The next (4th) U3014 has three red thin vertical lines top to bottom. It is usable but not worth $1,200.

Several Korean companies (Doublesight, Crossover, Yamakasi, Perfect Pixel, Zevroid) are buying Dell reject panels (2560x1600) and selling them with inferior electronics and cheap cases. Since my U3007 has lasted 7+ years I'm not ready to spend several hundred dollars on second hand rejected parts cobbled together.

Newegg has been wonderful through all these trials, thank you Newegg. A year ago when the ASUS PQ321Q (4K) display was brand new MSRP was $3,500 and the pioneer owners had major driver issues. I was not ready for 4k then, and neither was NVIDA. The driver issues are now long past and Newegg has the ASUS PQ321Q for $1866. This is now a no brainer.

I've seen the future, it is here now. DELL QC for the 30" 2560x1600 is in the abyss. For the difference in money go for the 4k ASUS PQ321Q and avoid all the problems I had.

The 30" Dell display was their flagship product only a few years ago, it breaks my heart to see their QC go to blazes.

5 out of 5 eggsEXCELLENT buy

Pros: I use this primarily for photo editing (Photoshop & Lightroom) and also some desktop publishing and for work (notes, documents). Absolutely fabulous colors. Colors are factory calibrated. Brightness is right on. Clarity is excellent. In most instances with "normal" screens I have to where my "old fart" (reader) glasses. With this screen it is not necessary unless I need to look at the finest details. Dells supplied software works well too. Significantly better than the HP 30" monitor that my other half has on her computer. Definitely would recommend this monitor at this price to anyone doing photo or video editing. Also recommended for anyone spending many hours in front of their computer and wanting a bigger desktop even if they aren't doing any image editing, but primarily only text.

Cons: NONE

5 out of 5 eggsFollow up 3014 failure

Pros: I recently wrote a review about the failure of one of my 3014 dell monitors. I was able to find the site location on Dell's site and was able to get a replacement sent within 3 days. The failed unit was a REV A01 that I have discovered through research Rev A01 has had some problems. The Dell contact reviewed the serial # and said they would send out a new unit with in 3 days. They did send a rev A03 and I am back up and designing new products. I applaud Dell for standing by their products, and this certainly gives me confidence to continue supporting Dell products. As an industrial designer I fell the have the best quality design for computer products. Having experienced their product support, I can give them a 5 EGG vote for their customer service. Great support, the American way, Thanks Dell.

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsDELL U3014 Monitor Update

Pros: I purchased this Monitor 5/31/13 and have really enjoyed using the product. I ordered a second one two months later.
They have worked well for 11 months as CAD monitors.
They run 24 hrs. a day

Cons: After 11 months the first monitor has died. It will only display a vertical line pattern. I would like to seek repair of the unit but have not been successful finding a source. Including Dell. I did the trouble shooting but no success.

Other Thoughts: If anyone knows of a procedure with Dell or any other source to get repair I would appreciate the lead.Still a great fan of NEWEGG.
As a product designer I understand failure rate percentages. If you manufacture quality products stand by them for a year min., without the Warranty Game!

2 out of 5 eggsDP in doesn't work but Mini-DP does

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.

I'm traveling in Canada at the moment, and apparently the business model for is to gouge foreigners with higher prices. The 10' mini-DP x mini-DP cables I've bought from for $12 with free super-saver shipping set me back $55 apiece! ($37.99 + tax + shipping).

Bottom line, $110 and a lot of hassle later I got the system running with my two new U3014's, but overall this model is a lemon. Also no pivot on the stands and it will be much harder to modify the existing stands for portrait (the stands supplied with the U3011s modified easily). So a few hundred more bucks for new stands will be the next order of business when I get back to the USA.

Bottom line, don't touch this model. Look for a leftover U3011 - it's a better monitor.

3 out of 5 eggsSome good, some bad

Pros: I have the A03 version manufactured in November 2013. I haven't noticed any of the problems that previous versions seemed to be plagued with such as lines or backlight bleed.

Picture *can* look great, but you have to know what you're doing when you calibrate it. It also helps to have a good video card with its own adjustments.

2560x1600 resolution is awesome.

Cons: The backlight is way too bright and I can't find a way to adjust it without destroying color quality. The monitor has brightness and contract adjustments, but those are primarily for color adjustment and not the actual brightness of the light. When I get my blacks and whites where they look just right, the picture looks awesome but it is so bright it hurts my eyes to look at it for long. Reducing the "brightness" setting on the monitor really messes up the colors, so that's not an option. The only solution I could find was to reduce the color brightness settings on the graphics driver, which seems to be doing the trick.

The color and brightness varies depending on what angle you view the screen. This screen is 30" so when I look at the corners and edges of the screen it's at a slightly different angle than center-view. This is enough to make different areas of the screen look slightly different. If I move my head so that the edge or corner is center-view then whatever is center-view looks normal while the rest of the screen looks slightly off. So the panel appears to be uniform, but it looks slightly different at different angles.

This monitor has noticeable fast-motion issues, so avoid it for movies or games. I even had to turn off smooth scrolling in my browser because the motion of the text scrolling was unbearable enough that it hurt my eyes.

For whatever reason this monitor is having trouble displaying highly contrasting text. White text on black backgrounds and black text on white backgrounds is not very sharp and has a reddish glow to it. I'm still toying with the settings trying to eliminate this but haven't had any luck yet.

The touch buttons for menus are just stupid. They're clumsy and difficult to use. Another example of a manufacturer doing something different just because they think it's "cooler" and not because it's actually better.

Other Thoughts: I bought this monitor to replace a Dell 3008WFP. Overall I think the 3008 was a better monitor, but unfortunately it was also the victim of poor quality and finally stopped working after only a few years of use.

The 3014 is good for a big 30" beast, but it doesn't perform nearly as well as most of its smaller cousins (nor as well as the 3008, in my opinion). If your primary goal is a huge monitor with lots of space then you'll probably be happy here. If your primary goal is great performance then you probably won't be happy here.
