Dell 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.
