      The monitor looks great and works as advertised. So far I'm very happy with the image quality for photos. I had read some concerns about uniformity, but am happy to report that uniformity on mine is quite good.

      The only negative is that the hardware calibration fails to live up to expectations, mainly because the calibration software from x-rite is so extraordinarily poor. Attempting to calibrate the native color space results in a severe green tinge due to the lack of any option in the software to set target white point. Custom mode does allow a target white point and calibration in that mode works well, if you happen to know the coordinates for the native color space (which aren't available from the calibration software). The software is completely automated with no intermediate steps or user interaction, which would be fine if it didn't fail to complete the automated sequence about 30% of the time. When it does complete it provides no information about the calibration results to let you know how successful it was. I'm equally unimpressed with the i1Profiler software x-rite ships with the i1Display Pro. It's too bad Dell has limited hardware calibration to this single product with terrible software. It sullies an otherwise great monitor with a needlessly frustrating calibration experience.

      I replaced my 5-year-old Dell 24" monitors with two of these 27" beauties. They have wonderful color and resolution, and as some others have noted, the brightness needs to be turned WAY DOWN from the default. Time will tell how well they hold up, but for now I am extremely pleased.

        Comments about Dell U2713H 27" Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Monitor:

        I'm a professor of new media art, so I have looked at a lot of screens in my time. The only screens better than this are Sony broadcast monitors that start at about $4000. This screen easily beats the $3000 panasonic broadcast monitor I most recently used for video editing, although with either LCD you will never get "true" blacks.

        The colour on the U2713H is simply fantastic. The image itself is neutral in a way that is closer to real life than anything I have used before. Looking at high-resolution photographs, my mind is taken back to looking through the viewfinder when I shot them, or the actual image I saw with my own eyes (as in my eyeballs, no camera) in the studio. The reproduction is fabulous!

        Price-wise this is an excellent deal if your profession is making images. It is one less variable to worry about.

        B and H shipped it, Dell box inside a B and H box, from New York to Montreal in three days. All arrived in perfect conditon.

        It comes with a top-quality Amphenol brand mini-Displayport to Displayport cable, so no need to order that separately.

                I mostly edit photos in Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Lightroom. I added this to a dual 20" Dell monitor setup to create more display space. Lightroom in particular makes use of dual monitor setups conveniently. The default calibration (I used AdobeRGB) is great and in fact noticed that with my older monitors I was oversaturating my photos. My next purchase will be a colorimeter just to make sure I have my monitors calibrated properly.

                Comments about Dell U2713H 27" Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Monitor:

                I bought this monitor to replace my aging 20-inch Apple Cinema Display, boy is it a step up! Great resolution, colors, and contrast. It has a plethora of ports, and comes with not only a DVI cable but a DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort cable. But it's not without its issues.First is some sort of weird chromatic aberration in high contrast situations when i look at something through the top or bottom of my glasses. If I take my glasses off that solves the problem, but that's hardly an optimal solution. It doesn't bother me too much and shouldn't be an issue for those not wearing glasses. Secondly, and this is fairly minor, is that the blacks when watching movies on my blu-ray player aren't as deep as I'd like. Maybe I need to explore the built in presets a bit more, but it's a minor issue as I didn't buy it as a TV.

                            Pros:
                            - Nice Anti-Glare coating
                            - Lots of connection options
                            - Highly adjustable

                            Cons:
                            - Overdrive causes a lot of inverse ghosting on text and light colored areas when scrolling.
                            - Colors were over-saturated out of the box and were difficult to calibrate.
                            - Fit and finish is a bit cheap.

                              I've been using Dell monitors for most of my professional life and my last pair of 24" (2405 & 2408) were showing their age. After researching I went with Dell again. Features vs price made it a more attractive deal than it's competitors.
                              This one came with colors calibrated at the factory and plenty of presets for different workflows. The ability to edit photos in Adobe RGB is great. Prints look perfect and color correction is much easier.
                              One really cool thing about this monitor is the viewing angle. The image doesn't seem to change at all when viewing from different angles. Much wider than any other monitor I've used. Clients won't have to ask "what happened to the pic?" when they are off angle.
