      This monitor arrived double-packed (additional packaging added by B&H.) Slip-clicked onto the stand and was up and running in 10 minutes. I have been using two side-by-side BenQ 1920x1200 monitors for about five years, one an IPS panel I used for photos and one a TN panel that I used for side stuff (tool palettes, etc.) I replaced the TN BenQ with this new Dell 3014, set the color for sRGB, and eyeball-tuned my remaining IPS BenQ to match it. I have a good eye, and it's EXTREMELY close; some may want to use third-party hardware calibration devices, but I've never felt the need. My video card (EVGA GTX-285 1gb) drives both monitors at native resolution with no problem, both using DVI-D, since my card does not have Display Port. BUT...my card is also about five years old, maybe six, clocked at 675mhz. It loafed along throttled down to 375mhz with the two BenQs but runs at full speed (675mhz)driving this Dell and the remaining BenQ. It's still relatively cool, running at 48-49c with the fan at 68%. The only game I play is for occasional stress relief (L4D2) and this game runs the temps up to 59c with the fan at 100%. I have to appreciate B&H for the great service and shipping, and also for honoring a price-drop for this product within a couple of weeks of my purchase. Good job, B&H!My copy of the 3014 has a single dead (dark) pixel, which is (thankfully) located within an inch of the lower left corner where it really doesn't matter. Dell's policy apparently requires 6 dark pixels to qualify for replacement, and I might feel differently if mine was located in the central (working) area of the panel, but it doesn't bother me where it's located. It is ironic, though, that of the last half-dozen monitors I've bought, this is the only one with a pixel defect out of the box. Guess I've been lucky! I like to buy cheap TN monitors at warehouse outlets like [*] or Sam's specifically because I can walk what I buy back in the door if there is ANY sort of defect. But with these expensive monitors, the supply chain is very different. I trust B&H, though, and have NO concerns about buying pricey gear from them. This monitor is a JOY to use with Photoshop, Lightroom, Nikon Capture NX2, Photo Mechanic et al. Especially with my smaller 24-inch sitting there to hold odds and ends. This is particularly nice for Nikon Capture NX2 because you can keep the image browser open on the aux monitor while you work on images on the big Dell. Very convenient! This LED-lit Dell 3014 monitor is cool as a cucumber; putting my hand within an inch of the top of this monitor, I can feel heat barely above ambient. The older CCFL-lit BenQ is MUCH warmer. One thing of note is that these LED monitors spring to color fidelity from dark (power saving) almost instantly. With the CCFL monitors like the older BenQs, you can go get a cup of coffee while the CCFL lights heat up to working temp.Ergonomically, this is a great design. Plenty of swivel, tilt and height options. With the same features on my remaining 24-inch BenQ, I have them aligned at the bottoms for frustration-free cusor movement back and forth. Having the Dell 3014 and the BenQ FP241 side-by-side lets me compare the viewing angles, and I can say the the Dell outperforms the BenQ for constant brightness and color shift both vertically and horizontally, but this isn't an issue for me, because at my work position, I am looking at each dead-center at all times, so color and brightness shift don't factor.Can I recommend this monitor? Absolutely.Can I recommend B&H? Absolutely.Do I want another one? Absolutely.Why not FIVE stars? Well, there IS that one dead pixel...Ignore the color difference in the two monitors in the picture. This is a result of CCFL vs. LED illumination and the phone camera not being a human eye. They are actually visually identical.

      I now have a dual 30" monitor set-up for video editing, DVD authoring, HTML coding, and other media applications. I only went with this monitor due to the fact that one monitor was already a Dell 30" (model was no longer available) but this one does the job. The first monitor we received fizzled out after only four hours of use. B&H exchanged the monitor and I was back up and running in about a week.

        I replaced two older 23" monitors with this one big bad boy. Though I am still going through some adjustments and withdrawals not having 2 side by side, the quality of this one is great. I don't see any light-bleed or dead pixels and the colors are bright and crisp. Love having all the input modes to choose from too.

          Comments about Dell U3014 30" Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Monitor:

          I've wanted to move up to a 30" monitor for a long time, and the Dell 3014 has finally made it possible. The high quality IPS panel, LED backlighting, sleek look, and low price came together in a great product. Add to the fact that it's only about 15 pounds, and I didn't even need the heaviest-duty monitor arm to mount it on. In portrait mode, I can see an entire page of orchestra score perfectly clearly!

          I did have to adjust the "sharpness" setting and turn it all the way down. As it came (set to 50, I think), text looked sort of like it had been JPEG-encoded. At zero, everything looks perfect, and... uh... *sharp*. Go figure.

          I'm using a standard Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable (something like $7) to connect to my 2012 MacBook Pro and everything worked perfectly the first time.

          Comments about Dell U3014 30" Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Monitor:

          I loved the 2560 x 1600 resolution of my old cinema display but the technology was getting old and the color bothered me. I even tried the new Mac Pro and a 55 inch 4k tv but the 30 mhz refresh rate was bothering me. I bought this monitor and all is good in the world. While the iMac has a beautiful display I always felt it had to much contrast and I lost a lot of detail. Side by side the the picture on this display looks identical to the iMac except it has a softness to it and I can see detail I can't see on the iMac. I can not say enough about how much more you see at 2560 x 1600 then you do at 2560 x 1440 on the iMac. Love it! I also wanted to mention there was a lot of problems with this monitor not speaking the color language of a Mac and people had to do a ruby patch or something. I did not have to. Just hooked it up and everything was perfect. Apparently they fixed the issue with the new Mavericks update

            This monitor was bought to display images at a tradeshow from an older macbook pro and then to sit beside my Apple Cinema 30-inch Display. As much as I like my apple screen the new dell will replace it as my primary monitor and the apple will move to my right. Great resolution and color havent color calibrated it yet but from the factoy its calibration is accurate. Adjusts phisical are good. As a profesional architectural photographer who works with 16 bit 200-800MB files every day this screen will serve well for color adjustment and retouching.

                Comments about Dell U3014 30" Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Monitor:

                I got this one after searching for good and not absurd costly monitor for the new Mac Pro. It was not easy to make it work fine.
                First issue I found was the position of the ports, under the monitor. Not an easy access and really hard to see what you are doing. I first connect the cables wrong because of that.
                By the way, Mac users can use the DP /MDP cable. TB port on the Mac will recognize the MDP with no problem. Just make sure you plug it on input, not output.

                Mac OS recognizes the monitor as a TV and because of that, the monitor doesn't work on a RGB color space. The image will look terrible if you don't correct that.
                I had to run a script to replace it in the OS. Search online for ruby script for this.
                More a apple faults them Dell, but Dell's information didn't help at all.
                I didn't get a good support from them and had to look for a solution myself.
                Dell should work with apple and make their products compatible.

                I still have to calibrate it and an external calibration tool is needed as Dell doesn't support Mac OS, so all their utilities will not work.

                I still didn't start working with images and I don't know what additional issues I may find along the way, but it looks pretty with a very crispy image and nice colors.

                    I bought 2 of the monitors to replace a 32-inch Samsung and a 27-inch Hanns-G. I've had them about a month or so. The resolution isn't as nice as the Samsung was, but then again it died quick death after only a year and was twice as expensive. It is WORLDS different than the Hanns-G. The monitors were delivered fast, easily set-up and have been good so far.
                    Only disadvantage is that they don't have built in speakers as my Samsung did, but again it died.

                              The A03 version of the U3014 that I received is flawless, fast, and gorgeous to look at. It's clearly the one to buy if your eyes are glued to a monitor ten hours a day for work. For pure beauty, nothing beats the Apple Thunderbolt Display, but for me, the glare from its highly polished screen causes significant eye strain after about six hours.BTW, with any 30-inch monitor, you'll need a convenient way to split up all that real estate. This is the perfect product you'll be addicted to it by the end of the day.

                                I now have a dual 30" monitor set-up for video editing, DVD authoring, HTML coding, and other media applications. I only went with this monitor due to the fact that one monitor was already a Dell 30" (model was no longer available) but this one does the job. The first monitor we received fizzled out after only four hours of use. B&H exchanged the monitor and I was back up and running in about a week.

                                      Decent monitor. My only issue so far is trying to get plain text as readable as possible when using full 2560x1600. I suspect I just need to keep playing around with the color and other settings.

                                              I use this monitor mainly for image editing and I purchased based on reviews and the fact it is a 16:10 vs. 16:9 ratio. I am more than satisfied with the mornitor. Quirks and/or I am/was too
                                              stupid to figure out: 1) Nothing in the literature describes how to adjust the height. Just pust it down and it is self adjusting...duh.. it took me some tome to figure this one out. 2) Annoying little pop-ups telling me it needs calibration and to do this you must purchase an accessory that is not cheap. Right now colors seem fine. 3)There is an issue with my video card (nVidia) and the display driver/monitor. Have not pursued, but will misbehave upon being awakened from sleep mode and have to re-boot. Likes: 1) Superb resolution and detail 2) No need for 2 monitors. Easy to partition screen when multiple windows are opened. Overall pleased with purchase and would buy another.

                                                    It took me a while to figure out that I need to use a DP (not DVI) cable to get 2560x1600 resolution from the U3014. Once that was settled it was just a huge upgrade to my system. I use CAD and this monitor is the equivalent of a C-Size sheet of paper! The monitor has the same pixel pitch as my old 24" one but 6" more of them. It also looks much better.

                                                        I bought this monitor primarily to play WoW. I had a Dell 30" LCD years ago that I gave to my son...and wished I had kept it..lol. The LCD was a fantastic monitor, and this new LED is just as good. Blacks are black, and colors are rich and vibrant. I don't experience any ghosting while playing, but have not tested it on any racing/sim type games. Heat output is minimal, and there is no "warmup" time...it's pretty much instantly on. Be sure that your graphics card supports dual DVI, and is powerful enough to drive this monitor's native resolution of 2560x1600. I use a GTX-770 without issue. My monitor was well packaged, and arrived on schedule. This was my first purchase from B&H, and will continue to shop here for my computer hardware needs. Thanks B&H!
