Re: Dell lists UltraSharp U3011 with 30-inch IPS panel by Anonymous on Friday, September 17 2010 @ 22:56:32 CEST
Sparkle effect of the nonglare coating is still visible and shouldn't be at this price level.
Only a single Displayport? $1500 couldn't get a second one?
Contrast is 1/2 of what a modern S-PVA panel can achieve. And calibrating the display reduces that contrast even further. This is really sad, because Dell refuses to offer a S-PVA panel side by side which would give buyers choices, but would probably destroy IPS sales.
The spacing between pixels (screen door) is noticeably larger than other TFT technologies, which is the likely contributor to poorer contrast.
Color, response, scaling and display control technologies are all otherwise first rate in this monitor. PVA would just have been a better choice.
