Dell UltraSharp U3014 Black 30
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -4.1MP IPS Panels
-Wide Gamut (1.07 Billion Colors)
-14bit LUT's
-Fairly high brightness
-Every connector imaginable
-Able to "Daisy Chain" multiple monitors off the same Display Port 1.2 connector (graphics card must support this feature, obviously)
-Good Uniformity
-Two Custom Color Space settings for storing ICC Profiles from Calibration Software
-Viewing modes include color temperature (6500k, etc.)

Cons: The Dell monitor stands that come with these monitors don't rotate into Portrait Mode. Being as the UltraSharp series is aimed at professionals, why would they hinder our abilities to put them in Portrait Mode?? Probably because of the size... Easily corrected with after-market mount though.

Other Thoughts: -(2) U3014's in Portrait Mode using an Atdec DH mount.
-Calibrated using an X-Rite i1Display Pro
-PerfectLum Calibration Software for DICOM conformance
-Calibrated ICC profile stored to one of the empty (Cal1, Cal2) custom settings on the monitors.
-I would recommend getting better DVI-D Dual Link cables than what is provided if your graphics card doesn't have Display Ports. Something with large Ferrite Cores.
-Graphics card might have to be set to "use Alternate DVI Frequency" in order to have stable picture due to the high resolution.
-Don't complaining about lines across your screen or problems with images until you've checked your graphics card settings and used quality cables. DisplayPort is still a "hit-or-miss" connector, especially at these resolutions.

Why do "gamers" insist on purchasing outrageous graphics cards and monitors that are designed for professionals, and then leave horrible reviews?? This monitor was obviously not designed for intense gaming, so stop wasting our time with your gaming reviews. IPS monitors in general are not good for gaming. If your parent's insurance plan would have included Plan B, your reviews wouldn't confuse the people who really need a product of this caliber.

ASUS VB Series VB198T-P Black 19
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Harder and harder to find 4:3 Letterbox Formats, everything is widescreen.

The contrast, especially with white backgrounds and black text, is amazing. Very sharp/crisp image. Viewing Angle is better than some of the widescreen monitors this size.

No issues/flaws/defects. Light, sleek, black, VESA Mounting (harder and harder to find these days)

Cons: Doesn't have an input button. Not something you think about with monitors like these, but it would be very helpful instead of using the OSD to switch back and forth.

Price seems a bit high, even though it's "outdated tech".

Other Thoughts: Business use - documents and PDF's and whatnot. No gaming or graphics uses. Very easy to look at "boring stuff" all day on these without any negative side affects.

AMD FirePro V4900 100-505844 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 Workstation Video Card
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Medical Imaging 2D/3D Software 10/08/2013

This review is from: AMD FirePro V4900 100-505844 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 Workstation Video Card

Pros: Supports Dual 2560x1600 4.1MP Monitors and additional 1600x900 monitor without any glitches or corruption.

10-bit LUT (10xRed, 10xGreen, 10xBlue = 30-bit) as opposed to most 8-bit cards out there.

AMD FirePro Control Panel has ability to turn 10-bit on/off under the FirePro Settings.

Great 3-monitor card for entry level workstations and medical imaging setups.

PerfectLum Calibration Software communicates with these cards with 10-bit LUT's without any glitches, and these cards properly load the ICC Profiles every time.

Cons: Seems like the prices should be coming down on products like these... But it's still a rock-solid investment.

Other Thoughts: For Gamers Who Stumbled Here by Accident:
Really?? Are you serious?? This card, for gaming??? Someone's parents gave them too much bourbon as a child to stop them from crying.

OpenGL - shading/rendering for professional software.
DirectX - gaming, gaming, gaming.

This card clearly supports DirectX, like any standard graphics card, but it's OpenGL is much superior, which is why it's "professional".

For People Who Aren't a Drain on the Economy:
As others have mentioned, these cards are great for entry level CAD/CAM and has important features for high resolution wide gamut displays and multiple monitor support, important in the healthcare community.
