Dell UltraSharp U3011


The Dell UltraSharp U3011 is a gorgeous 30-inch monitor offering loads of neat features, very good overall performance, and a hefty price tag.

Excellent color, viewing angle, and light grayscale performance. Robust feature set. Highly adjustable stand.

Pricey. Dark grayscale performance could be better.

Dell UltraSharp U3011


wide gamut 30'' monitor priced below 1k GBP 7-th revision of u3011 (most of bugs is succesfully removed) input lag does not affect gaming AG coating is not at all heavy decent factory calibration (sRGB), useful presets 3 years of dell warranty

monitor stand has its limitations, weight and size require powerful (and expensive) monitor arm some backlight leaking in corner areas usb cable is leaking power, can damage motherboard

Dell UltraSharp U3011


Great monitor, but a bit to big for normal pc stuff. Great for games, videos and graphic design.

To expensive. Unless you really need the extra size for games, movies or graphic design then go for the dell 27 inch which is half the price.
