Dell U2711 on the way. Any advice for setup? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Yeah I've had problems with DP on my HP zr30w. When monitor would sleep it wouldn't come back on some times. Only way to remedy this was to unplug from DP.

I switched back to DVI. No difference. I too have a AMD card

actually, since it's a warranty replacement, I don't think they'll be giving me any cables. For $10, it wouldn't be too bad to have a spare cable or to have one just in case it actually doesn't have any cables.

Thanks for the warning though smile.gif

Sounds good. IPS is great. I can't use my LG TN panel right beside it because the colours are soooo off. The multi inputs and build quality is awesome. It runs warm.

If you don't do any video or photo editing, I wouldn't bother calibrating beyond what you are capable of with Lagom and the OSD if you are satisfied with how the display looks. Programs that aren't compatible with calibration settings from a supplemental device like a Spyder or ColorMunki look funky -- so you might find yourself wanting to switch profiles when things don't look right. For those of us who need critical color representation, that expense is usually worth it.

Yea, I don't think I'll be doing any advanced calibrations. I don't think any of my friends have a colorimeter anyways, and I don't need it to be that accurate to warrant buying one.

As for the AG coating, is it a lot worse than the AG coatings on first gen LCD monitors? I've used quite a few matte monitors in the past, including some Dells, and I never thought they were too bad.

AG is a godsend if you work in fluorescent hell, but at home where you have some/total control over ambient lighting, it may bother you if you like to sit very close and have large static chunks of solid colors on screen. I don't find it to be bothersome anymore, though I can see where some people might take issue.

Never thought I would be but I am now a total fan of glossy screens. Of course, my monitors face a wall with no lights so reflections aren't a problem but everything looks so much sharper than with my matte displays. If you can control the lighting glossy is the way to go. Otherwise, matte is the obvious choice...
