Rated 5 out of 5 by MDS1968 Superb, but be careful of 'B' grade items from some suppliers
I have had eight U3014s, two U3011s and three 3008WFPs over the past 7 years. The U3014 is undoubtedly the best, but I prefer the 3008WFPs discrete buttons for control and it's far higher quality stand. However, the U3014 has near perfect colour balance straight out of the box and produces very little heat!
Please be careful to purchase this model from a reputable supplier such as Scan as there are many 'B' grade Rev. A04 U3014s on the market being sold as new (the current standard is Rev A05). The sub-standard units do not come with a Dell calibration certificate and often show large bluish 'pressure' marks on the screen against a grey background.
I am currently running three of these in a row to give wrap around coverage and they give the perfect balance of resolution versus size. I tried a pair of U3214s, but their increased resolution was far to high to appreciate at normal viewing distances and these are now mounted on Ergotron LX arms for proofing photos 'close-up' (3840 x 2160 is better suited to a +36" sized screen).
Overall, worth every penny!

Great monitor for CAD/Photoshop, all the bells and whistles you might need. Shame it came with only a EU plug!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Petrolhe4d Outstanding
As with many things one can get used to how they just are and not necessarily realise that they could actually be better. Having used my new Dell 30" screen I now see that many display screens are actually very poor indeed with washed out colours and a soft or blurred focus effect on something that doesn't need to focused! The screen image is fantastic and it's not just the resolution as my work laptop struggles to achieve the full resolution of 2560x1600 and instead prefers a max of 1920x1200. Even then the image quality is outstanding which is even more amazing considering that the screen isn't working at it's native setup. Superb!
Only one small gripe - getting the screen set up in the first place was a pain as the driver installer tries to be clever by detecting the monitor through the connected port ... which it doesn't do very well. So for a while I was left in a Catch-22 of not being able to install the driver as the monitor couldn't be seen but without the driver the monitor couldn't be seen so ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fastidious Excellent Monitor
This monitor is used for both gaming (First Person Shooters) and Illustrator and Photoshop.
It performs excellently in both spheres.
