Again there was no visible banding from gradients thanks to the finite adjustments to the hardware LUT. This affords you a good range for a wide variation of angles. It also remained free from the reflections you might experience from a full glossy solution so seems to be a good half-way between the two. In normal day to day uses this shouldn’t be an issue but you might want to keep this in mind if you’re viewing a lot of dark content from close up. The lower bezel features a shiny silver coloured Dell logo in the centre as you can see from the above images. If the manufacturer does not provide such information, the height is calculated from the diagonal and the aspect ratio.

The following table gives detailed information about the specs of the screen: You can also turn the dynamic contrast ratio control on and off in this section of the menu, if you are in a suitable preset mode where it can be activated.

Came with 3 input cables to fit multiple system requirements including my mac. Only the video window is enhanced.

The calibrated black depth and contrast ratio of the U were good for an IPS panel, even in different preset modes and colour spaces.

Overall there was a maximum deviance from the target of only 7. Also, for some reason I can’t figure out u314 these panels seem to have less than stellar side to side viewing angles. This feature didn’t seem to work at all on the U really. Black point ranged from 0.

One thing which separates this screen from many mainstream monitors, including the previous Dell u3104 offerings, is the support for hardware calibration. While these pixel response tests show the U to have reasonably fast transitions and fairly low deol of motion blur, there is something else going on as well here which can’t be picked out by the camera. There is actually a very wide range of controls here if you need them for gain, offset, hue and saturation, allowing the user to make finite adjustments where necessary.

Information about whether the stand can be dismounted. Ignore the color difference in the two monitors in the picture.

Anyone buying something like the U is going to need to have accurate colors in any colorspace, and the Dell offers an sRGB mode as well. See details for full description.

I will justify each result below: Best Selling in Monitors See all. Measurements for colour temperature white point were taken using BasICColor software and the i1 Pro spectrophotometer which can more accurately measure white points of different backlighting technologies.

The U may well eell a decent factory setup in some modes but given the market for this screen I expect many users will want to calibrate the screen personally to obtain even higher levels of accuracy and allow profiling and delll between different devices.

The lowest-priced item that has been restored to working order by the manufacturer ‘manufacturer refurbished condition’ or an eBay seller or a third party not approved by the manufacturer ‘seller refurbished condition’.

This setting basically features tweaked or customisable in the case of the “advance” option settings for contrast, sharpness, offset, hue and saturation. If you follow our basic OSD adjustments from our calibration process and maybe also try our calibrated ICC profile you should be able to get a better setup, even without a colorimeter of your own. The native mode delivered a white point closer to the k target though.

Although it could be considered that PWM is being used to some degree, this is likely to be easily high enough that it should cause few issues with flicker visibly, especially with the low amplitude. Shadow detail in darker scenes should not be lost Dynamic contrast ratio available and works to a reasonable degree.

Contrast Stability and Brightness. In fact we were very pleased with the lag of the display when switching to the game mode which seemed to eliminate pretty much all of the signal processing lag it dell.

We had measured a pretty low average I3014 response time of 7. This might be useful for colour critical work in the sRGB colour space and also for those who want to avoid complications with wide gamut and colour management, not to mention with movies and games. Well, there IS that one dead pixel See our UPQ review for more information.

Nevertheless they should be able to handle some moderate gaming. This might not be strictly accurate but a lot of people prefer this more vivid and cartoony appearance and so it’s useful that the option is available from the U There is also now a Mac OS version available here. The factory calibrated Adobe RGB and sRGB modes drll also pretty good although we would have liked to have seen a slightly better gamma curve and a slightly better emulation of the target colour space, particularly in the Adobe RGB preset which seemed to stray from the required coverage a bit too much.
