Fantastic. Exactly what I wanted to hear. And yeah it's big. I have a 42" Vizio TV not 6' away from my computer desk, and when I step back and visualize that TV on my desk, I thought for a second, shit, I hope it's not TOO big. (that's what she said)The stand it ships with uses the 200mm set, there are threaded holes for a 100mm mount, but did I mention this thing is big? 3840x2160@60Hz via DP straight out of the box. Working great. Not a significant amount of glow/bleed. Color is a little off, but I can't say how much. When I bring the X-Rite home from work I'll calibrate and see how close it can get.
Lag is not a thing I'm exceptionally sensitive to, but it seems fine to me.
Nothing unexpected, no regrets. This thing is big.
My ship date was May 9th with a delivery date of May 11. Credit card charged. Monitor still not delivered. Perhaps Dell is investigating the fake name I used in the "business" line of the address after all.I put "nope", so I'm sure you're fine.
I would consider yourself lucky that they will even do a firmware update via a service center. I know when they recently released their high end pre-processors that support HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 that the prior version owners were SOL. Which model receiver do you have?I'm mostly annoyed that I have the last Marantz Receiver that has to get firmware updates from a service center rather than over the internet. It's supposed to be capable of handling 4k but not unless I pay $100 and ship it out for two weeks.
When you look at the Dell 32" 4k Ultrasharp it seems to support a greater colorspace: http://www.amazon.com/Dell-UltraSharp-UP3216Q-Screen-Monitor/dp/B016IBVKNU/The first gen 32" 4k I bought also wasn't an Ultrasharp. I could attribute it to cautiousness concerning a 1st generation product and not wanting to damage the Ultrasharp brand, but it is more likely that the monitor doesn't meet some technical specification (inputs or whatever).
Monitor arrived. Box looks pristine. Of course I leave for work in less than an hour so won't get to play with it for a bit. I'll post some before/after pics by the weekend.Bummer, but at least you know where it is now, and not worried it's in someone else's hands.
I found out about Ultramon while googling my issue, I'll look into it. I'm just frustrated that it worked before but not now. I tried putting secondary 24" monitor in landscape mode, it didn't fix issue.Maybe try something like Ultramon?
Link. LOL I'm kidding. And I'm with Howell, I'm curious as to the reason for the reaction.You used the aweful word "connoisseur", which shouldn't even be considered a word and which I despise.
I wanted to plug in my card reader and I had to stop and figure out just how I was going to do it. I had to get on knees on side of desk, turn monitor so half of it was hanging off the back of desk, use a flashlight to see and bend my body to plug the damn thing in. Just flat out shitty placement of the USB 3.0 ports. It's the only real negative aspect of the monitor. Well except, perhaps, for the $1450 "shipped" price.Otherwise, the review is helpful. I read the specifications and at a bit more than 14Kg, considering its size, it is true that lifting the monitor in order to plug USB cables can be cumbersome.
I also don't understand why Dell bothered with 100mm VESA holes. Most 100mm VESA arms don't support more than 30lbs (this monitor weights a tad more than 31lbs). Some do, but they are expensive.
It is one way to put it. Explaining in more details would derail the thread. It is a term that manages to be both pompous and ignorant. It shouldn't exist and the fact that it has been accepted officially as an english word just confirms that whatever language authority english has is a total joke, a farce, a grotesque display of faux "connoisseurs" of the very language they are in charge of regulating.He's probably upset with the bastardization of the French word that it's derived from.
It's much, much, much more complicated than that. IPS type panels are prone to image sticking, far more than VA type. Just about every aspect of the design and manufacturing process can contribute to or be a factor in image sticking.Perhaps Dell (or panel supplier) is using a different set (of cheaper, less pure) chemicals in the LCD process and those chems have some image retention properties.
Well it is good to know that I'm not the only one. I too have have not noticed a thing unless looking at static test images. The "image retention" goes away rather quickly and does not seem to be permanent. That's all I care about.Yup. More than a little faint, I'd say. Possibly 10% still there for about 15 seconds?
Other than a synthetic I must say I've never noticed any issues related to this.
Probably true. There probably are some change in manufacturing, whether it's materials or the process itself because my older HP ZR 24w shows zero image retention as compared to the slight amount for the Dell.It's much, much, much more complicated than that. IPS type panels are prone to image sticking, far more than VA type. Just about every aspect of the design and manufacturing process can contribute to or be a factor in image sticking.
Curious. 1) Is the Vizio 3840x2160 @ 60Hz? Is the chroma 4:4:4 or 4:2:2?I've switched from a 24" Dell running 1920*1200 to a 40" 4k Vizio TV, the biggest issue I have is that when I get close to the screen I get barrel distortion from my glasses. I can certainly see a future where I have three of these (prob sitting on folding tables).
