I was the one who recommended it to him. He ended up not liking it. However, he had very good reasons for disliking it.

EDIT: Yet to point out, from what I understood, he didn't particularly dislike it, he just didn't think it was worth it
Yup, it's definitely an amazing monitor, no doubt about that. And don't take the negative comments regarding the AG coating too seriously, it's not really that bad. It has the typical green left pink right tinting but again, not really noticeable. The reds are a bit out in sRGB mode but if you have a colorimeter you can get it close to perfect. The dot pitch is amazing, so playing slower paced graphically advanced games give you a completely different experience, provided you're okay with turning vsync on.

I think mostly having a 120hz "gaming monitor" next to it ruined it for me in most games though more than anything. If you haven't used a 120hz, you probably won't know the difference. You gotta see it side by side. To me, smootheness > image quality, and that was the deal breaker. If you're the other way around, go for it.

Also, don't let the Dell sales guy tell you he can't go below a certain price. You can get it for 725ish.

But I do have a 120hz monitor. In fact, my monitor can even do 160hz if necessary. And it's a lot better than any 120hz LCD, since there is absolutely 0 motion blur

However, I'd still choose a U2711 over a 120hz LCD.

Yeah, I guess it just depends on your priority.

I value the smootheness of the 120hz over the gorgeousness of the U2711. Although now that I have the ZR24W the difference in smootheness is less noticeable.

When I first booted up portal 2 with the U2711 I did have an eyegasm though. So if you can handle vsync in games (I can't), the Dell is pretty much the best thing I've seen.

Why do you need to use vsync with the Dell?

Huge blocks of the screen getting torn in half horizontally is the alternative. There is something about the size of the screen or maybe the aspect ratio in combination with the size that makes the screen tearing that much more noticeable.

I originally thought that I had a defective model it was so bad, but the replacement they sent me had the same thing.

It's still impossible to deny how good the screen really is though. I know I'll miss it, and the HP doesn't look nearly as nice on my ergotron stand, but I know it's the right choice for me.

Honestly, if you have the money to pay full price for the u2711, get the U3011 when it's on sale. My guess is that even though it's bigger, it won't be prone to the same issues. Also, no dark trailing and less input latency are a plus. When I get a promotion at work that involves better pay, I'll be getting that (or something similar) as my primary.

The aspect ratio has nothing to do with tearing.

If the U2711 is prone to tearing, so will the U3011 be. But really, the FPS you get has a moderate factor in this. Tearing is more visible at certain FPS

Is that some sort on inherent issue with IPS in general, or is it due to the sheer amount of pixels needing to be refreshed on screen?

Don't know, since I haven't actually owned such a display

It is NOT a downside of IPS. (Spandy is currently runnign a smaller IPS, without these issues). It's most likely just related to the amount of pixels needed to run it.

It might just be that the larger screen space made it more noticeable. There is screen tearing on any 60hz monitor (and that interpolated junk), but on the u2711, definitely more noticeable. I still think the aspect ratio affects how much I notice it. It sees more to the sides, so I see more screen tearing length
