Korean S-IPS Monitors vs Dell UltraSharp Monitors Compared - Page 2  

post #11 of 126
Having owned both the U2711 and the catleap, there is no comparison. I would take the glossy catleap over the dell any day even if I could have one free and you told me to pick. That god-awful AG coating really ruins the screen, I can't even tolerate looking at it for more than 5 minutes at a time. Though the dell has better inputs, warranty, and casing they do both use the same panel so I can only imagine what a winner dell would have if they just eased up on the coating a little. I haven't seen the U2713 in person yet so I can't really comment on that.

The U2711 and any of the current crop of cheap korean monitors do not use the same panel. They are totally different panels. The U2711 is a wide gamut, 10bit (8bit +FRC), CCFL panel. The korean monitors use an LED, sRGB 8-bit panel. The U2711 panel, by any technical definition, is a superior screen (although not necessarily a better screen for specific use cases).

Yes but feel much better about buying from them than from an ebay seller.
Thats my only gripe with the Catleaps etc, lack of reputable seller and reliable warranty I don't have to jump through hoops for (that's my opinion on it).

Similar panels*
Why do you all keep perpetuating that they're all the same panels?

Most of the Korean ones use the same panel as the Apple Cinema display which is a different panel from the Dell.
None of the Korean monitors use the same panel as the Dell afaik.

The 8bit models with glossy or matte use the LM270WQ1-SD** panels; (same panels as the Apple iMac and Cinema displays - which uses the LM270WQ1-SDA2 to be specific), while the 10bit (8-bit+FRC same method of faking 10bit colour as the Dell) variation from Crossover uses the LM270WQ1-SLA1.
The U2711 is the LM270WQ2-SLA1 while the U2713 uses the new LM270WQ3.

Bought 3 korean monitors before and returned all of them. All of them had crazy backlight bleeding even the sellers promised me to check bleeding before shipping. Posted a black light bleeding photo on forum, then received an angry email from a seller saying the photo I posted hurt their business and threatened me to not take the monitor back. F them! Never buy korean monitors again!

That was informative, although I did know they were different I had forgotten when I posted that.

None of that helps the dell not look like it was submerged in vaseline though. biggrin.gif

Maybe not, but its been stated many times since these monitors cropped up even tho the Dell is CCFL lit and not LED; that alone makes them not the same panel.

I'd like to see actual calibrated comparisons and testing; not just some random image that proves nothing at all. Most of the information in regards to image quality/accuracy etc thats thrown around is hearsay and untested or un-backed claims.
Anand did a review on the Shimian and placed it around the same quality as the 2009/2010 Apple display overall, better in some instances, worse in others and rightfully so being its the same panel and similar internal processing - build quality aside since this thread is about image quality, tho quite frankly, from what I've seen the build quality of the enclosure isn't all that bad for most part other than the rather bland back casing and external PSU.

could this be ips glow effect cause i thought i had major blleeding aswel but it wasnt actual bleeding when i removed myself further from the screen it disapeared and then i realised it was ips glow frown.gif
tho the glow is minimum if you get the monitor centered infront of you.

Would also be nice to see gamut range posted for all monitors listed in the OP. IMO thats one of the big differences between low and high end monitors, and why I bought a U2410 instead of another model. Asus, Samsung and Dell are good about disclosing that info.
