This review is from: Dell UltraSharp U2713H Black 27" WQHD 6ms(GTG) IPS-panel Displayport HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight Monitor 1.07billion colors 350 cd/m2 DC 2Million:1 (1000:1), height&pivot adjustable
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.
Slightly cheaper than most wide-gamut LED-backlight displays.
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.
Pros: The 2560x1440 resolution looks great for most computer work and casual gaming. Mine had zero dead pixels. The stand was sturdy and there were a variety of inputs.
Cons: The W-LED backlighting isn't the best (weaker in reds and greens), but for the price, it's appropriate. The build quality could be a little better; the bezel feels a little flimsy.
Other Thoughts: If you're wary of the really cheap 2560x1440 monitors from Korea (which from what I've read, have less sturdy stands), this may be a safer bet.
This is a good display but I ended up RMAing it to get wider color gamut display for sensitive color work.
