not sure i guess monitor tech stagnated, does dell even do oled?
OLED is a terrible choice for workstation use, burn in is as prolific on OLED as it is with plasma.
oled will get better or a alternative will come along but current led is shit
I posted a similar thread to you a few months ago!
I'm now using dual monitor set up of Dell U3014.
Keen on the LG 43UD79, but not sure if it's practical for my use case. I've got a 90cm deep dining table as a desk for it though. The dream is alive for now. Maybe if it goes on deep discount..
599usd special atm on that lg
I got one of those radiforce monitors, tricky to calibrate as its not panchromatic either.
Well, I’m still using Dell at home, but yeah, if I was buying now (also, when it’s time to upgrade), I’d probably go for some other brand.
So many more *good* choices now, it seems.
It's a real shame, they seem to have dropped back in terms of keeping up with the opposition.
4k 32" ips from Korea / HP / Acer / asus seem to be the go now.
Since 4k happened, uhd (uwxga) isn't specialised like they use to be, though 16:10 is still rare enough for panel prices to remain high
The older Dells were/are fantastic for inputs: having Svideo, composite, component, DVI and VGA was not uncommon, and us old farts running ancient computing kit love them
That'd be me, got one connected to my Amiga 1200.
i ended up getting a old lg but i know its no dell, wish they'd pull their fingers out
They are still great.
if Dell did their 4K HDR monitor in a larger size and with a scync tech in it then that would be great. Asus has a similar one but it has loads of issues.
Why cant some panel manufacturer create a monitor with good colours for editing and high hz for gaming on the same panel?
wait they dont even do sync tech? Thats so bad wtf why are they so far behind?
Some people like me still use a good dell because they enjoy a high quality image with delicious colors and a proper color gamut. I’ve had it for around 5 years and am still waiting for a >60Hz >1440p Gsync monitor that can compare on picture quality.
Literally no g-sync monitor available can compete on that requirement currently - if they could I would have bought one, and when eventually they do, I will buy one
I switched from a dell U2713HM to an AOC 165hz IPS gsync monitor.
It's an upgrade in nearly every aspect. I use a colour calibrator so colour is not an issue. Both are 1009% sRGB and I do not work with professional printers.
I have no doubt that the U2713HM has a better panel but it's a small tradeoff. There seems to be a bit more backlight bleed or IPS glow but this affects all IPS monitors to some degree.
If dell put out a unit that could compete, I would definitely consider it.
I got a G sync Acer Predator 4k IPS 32 inch for sale at the moment...
Because Dell supplies to enterprise corporates first and foremost before they even consider the 0.01% that is gamers.
Currently 20-30% off Dell monitors sitewide.
You are still sacrificing colour accuracy. For most people it doesn't matter, because IPS panels are 'good enough' compared to TN panels and will look fantastic. Back then there was largely TN panels and a small number of affordable IPS panels, and that was your choice.
Nowadays its the choice between decent colour + gaming tech or great colour accuracy, where Dell is still an excellent choice (and in that price point, nothing comes close IMO).
I'm not talking about your NEC and Eizo's here, they're a whole other market.
Just because your monitor is IPS doesn't meant it does colours well.
73% Adobe RGB coverage. The current Dell U2716 does 100%. Their 5 year old 2713 does 99%. They're not made for gaming, period. Your monitors with 144Hz, sync tech, etc are not made for colour-accurate work either.
