[Hexus] Dell updates flagship Ultrasharp monitor range - Page 5

Likewise, the contrast and input lag on most IPS monitors, especially under the 400 dollar range, are pretty bad.

Any proof to back this up? How does a monitor "appear" to refresh at 120Hz and not really refresh at it unless you're thinking it's how those 120Hz TVs operate in which case it's not.

I have an Overlord OC monitor and the difference between 60Hz and 120Hz is night and day.

Go get it. I love mine. I had Dell's flagship u3011 before and hated it. Might be great for photo editing but terrible for gaming. The PB278 is virtually lag/ghost free with trace set to 20.

The new PLS panels in the Samsung are getting insanely good reviews, most are claiming better than IPS, and I don't see the new dell monitors having the same quality for gaming and day to day tasks. These dells are 10bit monitors, which add a ton to the cost and give 0 benefits to gamers and your average user.

Dell also has had very mixed results lately with it's monitors, mainly due to their anti-gloss coatings and bad QC. The Samsung is glossy, they factory calibrate it and give you a calibration paper in the box, and Samsung apparently has been requiring a much higher standard for backlight bleeding and uniformity on their 970Ds. It's virtually none, and I can't say the same for any of the current Dell monitors, they are extreme hit or miss in that department.

I envy this man. That display is a powerhouse. We need more like it in more resolutions (and for less $$ eventually).

After reading the review. I feel much better about having the U2412m. Its more for mainstream use and casual user as stated in the review. Which fits me perfectly. The U2413 is geared towards professional use. I can certainly see now why its $300 more and people willing to pay for those extra features they need. I do envy the lighter ag coating now in U2413 that is about it for me.

Seems the updated SB971 should be released soon in Europe so it will be interesting to see what they updated.
TFTCentral just pushed out the U2413 review yesterday. I wouldn't say the U2412M gets smoked, there are image quality enhancements and features one would expect for a monitor for over double the price. The 12M has a slightly better response time and about the same lag.

Since the U2413 is a true replacement to the U2410 it will probably have about the same price drops. It was common for the U2410 to be around $500 with occasional drops to $450.

It's a matter of using a different board, and Catleap monitors were already being sold with either board at random (one overclockable the other not), meaning there is effectively $0 cost difference between a 60hz monitor and 120hz monitor. Other than the cost of adding another SKU to your system.

The traditional premium for 120hz is just price gouging.

Agree 100%. Nothing but 16:10 for me. You lose too much vertical space otherwise. Thought I saw somewhere else that the Dell UltraSharp U3014 will use LED back-lighting (a plus IMO). I'm also curious to know whether the response time and/or input lag have been reduced. High input lag was the biggest criticism I saw for the U3011.

This. It's an amazing alternative for Eyefinity, I'd prefer one over a 27" 1440p monitor actually, and have a secondary 1080p monitor.

It's almost confirmed to have a GB LED backlight like the U2713H and a lighter AG coating.

That sounds great! However, I have not seen anything written to confirm.

Dell quality control is a bit off. I dropped over 1k last month on a U3011, and it was artifact city within a few days of use. I switched to a ZR30. I'm looking for another monitor that has the Dell's inputs though. That Samsung PLS monitor sure looks good.
