HP ZR30w

Dell UltraSharp U3011 30"

Is there any Real difference between these monitors?

.

The Dell has full controls via the monitors OSD menu - i.e. sliders for RGB in Custom mode and more.

The HP only has a Brightness and Contrast control - no OSD menu, none!

If you are calibrating and want to use the advanced option most of the better calibrators offer where you require RGB sliders, you will be out of luck with the HP.

The other point to check is the defective pixel policy.  I'm not sure what HP's is but what Dell offers has been said to be a decent warranty for the Ultrasharp line.  Dell does not offer the same warranty for some of their low end lines.

Btw... are you aware that the U3014 is coming soon?  It will replace the U3011.

The U3014 will have technology similar to what you can read about in the recent reviews of the new U3014 and U2713H on the TFT Central website.
