Pros: - Luminance Uniformity is excellent.
- Color Accuracy for sRGB mode is crazy accurate at
Delte E < 0.719
- Fast response time with no visible signs of RTC overdrive errors.
Cons: - The monitor could be held just a little firmer on the stand
as pressing the buttons will cause your entire screen to move. That being said, this shouldn't realistically be a problem unless you're trying to use this monitor in a moving vehicle.
- Just a touch of over brightness/ backlight bleed in the bottom two corners.
- Color temperature of this monitor was just a bit higher than the preferred 6500, probably landing closer to 6800 on average.
Other Thoughts: I'm an aspiring filmmaker so my needs were a color accurate monitor that was reliable for color grading raw footage and fast enough to smoothly display video without artifacts.
Originally ordered the u2713H and was disappointed when the color uniformity across the screen was garbage.
For the amount of money this monitor costs and the utility it provides, it is an EXCELLENT monitor.
Now believe me when I say I spent weeks pulling my hair out trying to pick a monitor, it seems there aren't any being built now that don't have inherent flaws unless you can afford a HP dreamcolor at $2500. I had heard and seen videos of this monitor (u2413) displaying intense green/dark overdrive shadow artifacts, but the monitor I received (built Apr 2013 rev 00) does not show any over drive shadows that I can visibly catch with my eye when trying to provoke it nor in regular practice such as watching fast cut scenes in a film.
The way the market feels right now, buying a monitor of any given model feels a bit like rolling the dice. There seems to be just a bit of luck in receiving a solid, well calibrated monitor from the factory.
