p.1 #1 · Dell u3011 vs 3014


I am looking at picking up a larger monitor in order to get a little more real estate for my digital workflow for research and photography purposes but don't have enough experience with 30" monitors, or dell monitors, to really understand the impact of the idiosyncrasies. This is what I have so far...

U3011 - 8 months used, perfect condition, local seller $650
- crappy antiglare coating
- CCFL backlighting (hot and energy inefficient)
- 1 billion colors and nearly full adobe RGB

U3014 - refurb off ebay "perfect condition" $900
- less intrusive antiglare coating
- LED RGB backlighting (cooler, uses a lot less energy)
- a tiny bit more aRGB coverage
- USB 3 hub would be nice to have

Has anyone made the jump from one to the other? Does anyone feel that 30" is too large for a monitor? I currently use a 24".

I look forward to hearing opinions on these two monitors.

You also have the option of two 27" monitors instead of one 30". I like that very much. But it also depends on your workflow and software. For Lighttroom I really like the two 27".

I barely have space for a single 30", much less 2x27".

That is wicked cheap for a u3011 from what I have seen.
