The Dell u3011 is a wide gamut panel. That means in any non-color managed app (ie, pretty much everything except photoshop) any primary color, especially red, is going to be grossly oversaturated. Skin tones get excessively red/orange. You might be used to it, or even like it, but it really isn't displaying proper colors (unless you have it set to sRGB, or are actually using a color-managed workflow with adobeRGB.) The Auria is not wide gamut (at least the glossy version isn't - if the matte version really is using a u2711 panel, then I suppose it could be.)

So depending how you have your color settings, it might have less vibrancy compared to the Dell. But if you have both of them set up properly, they should be quite comparable.

If you like the Dell, I would just find a pair of 20" 1600x1200 monitors to flank it in portrait - they will match up perfectly.

Did you run through the basic windows color calibration? On one of my machines it looked somewhat blown-out/faded, but tweaking it in the OS snapped it right into shape. Like this guy. I would try that before messing too much with the hardware settings, you might just dig yourself in deeper.

Hmm.. I just picked one of these up in boston and I must say I'm not very impressed. Perhaps it just needs some calibrating but I have a feeling it might be the AG coating. I noticed one stuck pixel, maroonish, about 6in from the top and right. Backlight bleed looks like my acer x223w. Well I'm off to get a miniDP to DP adapter in the mean time

Stand sucks also and they couldn't have picked a worse spot for the plugs imo

Thread cleaned. If you are going to post "facts" about why "1440p+ gaming isn't feasible without spending $400+ on a GPU", try also posting some supporting arguments, if there are any which there probably aren't. The rest of you, don't feed the troll.

I created a custom resolution at 75Hz, and it seems to be working fine, but how can I be sure? That tool someone linked earlier has a broken download link.

Purchased one Friday. Had the tech at Microcenter test for stuck/dead pixels. Tested a black and a few other back ground colors and everything looked great.

Since there was no height adjustment I went ahead and purchased a small computer stand. Also purchased a display port cable. Funny how every display port box was an opened/returned item. I think it is people not reading and thinking they are hdmi cables.

All in all the screen looks great and is a nice upgrade from my 5yr old, 24", 1920x1200 res monitor.

Thank you so much! This is why OCN is still my go-to for quality news and discussion.

In regards to wide gamut saturation, if the matte Auria is using a true 10bit panel (which still is hard to believe... Maybe 8+FRC?) then that would certainly explain a lot of the disappointment some of the buyers have mentioned.

We really need someone with a calibration tool to do an analysis like I did on the glossy and post their Adobe RGB/sRGB coverage results. My analysis reported that the glossy is indeed 8 bit, as it approximates 100% sRGB but falls short of Adobe RGB (as expected). If we can get verification that the panel is wide gamut, then we can start discussing ways to enhance each user's experience when using a wide gamut display.

Aside from calibration helping, using color space aware applications (like Firefox, Photoshop, etc) can help to alleviate the issues, and also hone-in on targetting this monitor at photo / video professionals rather than gaming. (As in my opinion, a Wide Gamut monitor is a poor choice for a gamer, one of the primary reasons I am so satisfied with my glossy Auria - I get 100% sRGB for accurate web-targetted photo / video work, and great color and contrast for gaming!)

What is a good cheap calibration tool/colorimeter that can test this? I am looking to get one to calibrate my monitors and my friend's Auria for color accuracy (he is a photography professional and uses photoshop and I'm learning photoshop).

And when I calibrate do I use the monitor's own hardware setting or windows OS calibration? Thanks!

Actually, I'm using DP and can't see the BIOS, on dual link DVI I can see and access the BIOS.

I haven't tried with Displayport, but I run mine using DVI and access BIOS that way. It does seem like the monitor doesn't wake and turn on fast enough to see the BIOS splash, but if I spam delete, it gets into BIOS and displays just fine.
