Monitor shopping. Need help!
Jun 7, 2013


I'm considering a move to a 27" WQHD monitor and am torn between the Dell u2711 and u2713. I have read about the pros and cons of each, but am still unaware of which would be best for my needs.

- I am not a pro. Just a hobbyist who enjoys good color reproduction out of his photos.

- My GPU is a "consumer" NVidia card, so 10-bit color is out of the question.

- I will not be printing my own photos anytime soon.

- Is color management tedious and would be an issue with non-editing software?

- How good is the u2711's sRGB emulation?

- If my computer can't fully handle what a wide-gamut monitor has to offer, is it even worth looking at?

Thanks for the input!
