Is the U2311H a bad display?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Reviews seem to be saying that it has really bad backlight bleeding and unimpressive colors. Is this true? Because the first of these totally gets rid of the beneficial viewing angle of an IPS panel and the second eliminates the benefit of increased color gamut.

I just got my U2311 today. Got it up and running about an hour ago. It has zero backlight bleed and the colors really pop and are very accurate. So take that as you will :-) Mine is Rev 01...

No, it's false. Whoever said that about the U2311H is either a moron or got a defective unit.

backlit bleed is real, although a very minor issue imo.. tint issues vary from panel to panel, it's easiest to tell on a white screen like google homepage or something like that... typically for those with tint issues, the left side is a bit bluish and the right side is a bit yellowish

U2311H does not have a wide color gamut. It's standard sRGB.

That said, it is considered one of the best sRGB IPS panels on the market atm. Check this review: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2311h.htm

I was unimpressed with default settings but it's amazing with calibration. Easily the best monitor I've ever owned, though the first IPS monitor. Yes it has IPS glow though backlight bleeding? Not so much. Pretty uniform backlight.

I have had my U2311h Rev.A01 for almost 3 months now. I have thoroughly enjoyed the picture quality and color accuracy of this panel. Back light bleeding and tinting have not been an issue for me with this model. These problems might have existed in large volumes early in production but are no longer the case. You are more likely to run into an issue with a defective pixel before you are bothered with black light bleeding or tinting. While this is hyperbole this assumption of mine is based on the aggregate number of positive reviews I have read concerning the U2311H Rev.A01

If you would like I really in-depth look on this panel I recommend reading this post in my original U2311H thread: http://www.overclock.net/monitors-displays/901559-dell-ultrasharp-u2311h-rev-a01-thoughts.html#post11821802

My only concern with this monitor is that for a few minutes one evening it exhibited a chronically laggy button menu. Fast forward to about the 1:20 minute mark to really notice the lag.

Thankfully, since my posting of this video 3 weeks ago this "bug" has not made a reappearance. I am unsure whether or not it is fair to call this issue a "bug" because it could be related to defective internal components for all I know. If this is could in fact be the case (defective internals) I am strongly considering an RMA with DELL.

Despite this small hiccup that I have not been able to reproduce (others online have confirmed this issue) I still think the U2311H is an exceptional panel.
