Roundup: Dell Monitors on e-IPS Matrix
Color spaces particularly useful and not as good as I thought for the higher end models. Some of these advertized as "wide gamut" are just "different gamut".
Also it's unfortunate how the contrast ratio drops off at lowest brightness. 100nit, the lowest measured, is suitable for a bright room, but even here contrast is very low for some of these monitors. To reduce to just one number, measuring contrast ratio as the minimum over a 50nit-150nit range would give a much truer picture.
I have heard complaints about the 2408WFP's lag (which I presume the U2410 replaces?)
AnandTech got good performance in the key areas:
-performance at low brightness
Dell advertizes the U2711 as suitable for critical use, and many photographers recommend this monitor. Is it possible your measurements are off? Or has Dell started to use inferior panels?
In addition it is not clear that you perform color test after having hardware calibrated and profiled the monitors.
It's a bad idea to reduce Contrast as it directly reduces the contrast ratio! If you want lower nits you need to reduce Brightness as low as possible, before touching Contrast (if it's still needed).
I do not see how they can both be right, and the ones herein seem very odd -- how can Dell be selling a monitor with a claimed wide gamut that is not very wide, and does not come close to matching the manufacturer's specs. It is not as if Dell is a small company with no reputation to protect.
Can anyone suggest a way to reconcile the contradiction? Dust on the color checker?
