Dell unveils 30" U3014
Dell replaces the U3011 with a new U3014. It still has the familiar Dell look with a matte black frame and an ergonomic base, but it also follows Dellâ€™s recent design route with more rounded and soft corners.
The IPS panel has been pre-calibrated from the factory and offers both a sRGB color mode and an AdobeRGB color mode (99 % coverage of AdobeRGB). It uses a 16:10 aspect ratio and has a resolution of 2560x1600 pixels, offerings lots of desktop space. Dell has also been able to lower power consumption considerably compared to its old 30â€ť version, due to the new LED backlight.
Internal color processing happens through a 12-bit processor and a 14-bit LUT (look-up table). Other specs include a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 6 ms (g2g) response time and 178/178 viewing angles.
When it comes to input connectivity, the U3014 boasts a range of options. It has 1 DVI, 1 DisplayPort, 1 mini-DisplayPort, 1 HDMI, and even one 1 DisplayPort out. In addition, Dell offers a USB 3.0 hub with four ports.
