With so many positive reviews across the Web and wanting a 30" 16:10 monitor with both analogue and digital outputs, this latest revision of the 30" 2560x1600 monitors from Dell seemed ideal. It certainly is physically impressive. The build quality seems reasonable, the monitor casing is quite slim, the stand sturdy, there's pretty much every kind of input you could hope for and the OSD/firmware presents lots of options in a clear and easy to use way.

Trouble is, I didn't buy a very expensive 30" monitor to look at its bezel, OSD or input array, I bought it to look at the picture. This is where the U3011 fails. One or two of the more professionally orientated reviews I'd read online mentioned the poor brightness linearity of the screen - it's darker on the left than the right - however, they said it wasn't really visible to the naked eye. It certainly was on my unit, with a clear shading left-right which persisted from cold power-on to fully warm after several hours.

Worse, this was accompanied by a colour shift. It was most obvious when the screen was filled with white, but showed up in photographs too (particularly in clouds) or just general desktop work if lots of light grey windows were present. Again, one or two reviews alluded to this but claimed it wasn't significant. What I saw was a very obvious colour shift - green on the left where it was darker and pink on the right where it was lighter. The effect was made worse by my old monitor sitting to the left of the new one. After calibrating both with an i1 hardware calibrator, the old monitor was neutral and roughly matched the centre of the screen of the Dell - but was in stark contrast with the green tinted left side of the Dell screen.

This review is split into two: A review of my Amazon service and a review of Dell U3011.

First of all let me explain that the Dell looks fantastic, very crisp, great colours and the screen just performs excellently. Plenty of inputs and future proofing. I wanted to love this monitor but it hums. And it drove me barmy. Any brightness under 90% and it would emit a high hum - I believe its from the built in power transformer in right hand side. Its loud enough so that even sitting back at your desk and working you can hear it... its just loud enough to get to you. 90%+ brightness is just SO bright, its impossible to use it at this level.

So I ordered a replacement. Exactly the same deal. So it went back. I now have a mint 30" Apple Cinema Display for half the price and am very happy indeed.

Amazon were amazing. I actually received a call from them to send me a replacement monitor whilst the other was being picked up so I wouldn't be without a screen for work purposes. Citylink pick up for return of both monitors was straightforward (luckily someone was in). Refund processed without any hassle and very quick. So absolutely 5 stars for Amazon. They really are fantastic.

Wanted to give the Dell 5 stars but obviously they have issues with QC. These monitors were also latest revision, I believe A08/A09.

Maybe you'll be lucky and get one that doesn't hum. My experience was it seems to be a lottery with current stock. Amazon have flagged this and are looking into it.

Had this a few weeks now. Great monitor. Zero pixel defects. 100% perfect. Range of inputs is fantastic. Res is awesome. Once you've used 2560 x 1600 you'll wonder how you ever put up with anything less.

To address some of the comments I read elsewhere:

1) The anti-reflection coating is great. I know some people prefer to have a glossy glass mirror-like screen. Those people are i-d-i-o-t-s. Who want's to look at distracting reflections all the time? Anti-reflection is the way to go. I'm sitting with my back to a window and I can happily use the screen in full sun with no distracting reflections - awesome.

2) This bad-boy is bright! I'm running with the brightness setting set to zero and the contrast turned down a bit. Great brightness and great level of control. Perfect.

3) The screen does not buzz or make any sound.

4) The OSD is great and I had no problems with accidentally turning the monitor off.

5) The stand is very stable and I've had no problems with the screen moving or shaking (I suggest those who were complaining about stand stiffness get a more stable desk).

6) No problems with display lag. Played L4D2 and BF2 with no issues. Looks great.

My only complaint is with the colour point of the red. It's very scarlet - so skin tones look unnatural - everyone looks sunburnt. You can play with the RGB gains but you can't change the hue of the pure colours. (eg. To make the red look more natural you'd have to mix some green into it to shift the colour point - and there's no way to do that as far as I'm aware. Anyhow - it's not a problem for coding and design work since your eye adjusts to whatever colours your looking at and after a few minutes they look normal.
