Dell Ultrasharp - Adobe RGB?


Has anyone got any opinions/experience on how the Dell Ultrasharp line compares to Eizo & NEC screens?
Apparently they've got Adobe RGB on the Dells now. Are they close to Eizo Flexscans / NEC Spectraviews?

Re: Dell Ultrasharp - Adobe RGB?

Until Andrew Rodney answer...

The PRO line from NEC(PA) and Eizo(CG and SX) have a programable hardware internal LUT(14 to 16 bit) and it is much better than using the graphics card LUT(8-bit).
The Dell U2410, U2711 and U3011 they got a NON programable hardware internal LUT(12-bit)
at least it is better than nothing, but the calibration curves still in the graphics card 8-bit LUT.

The calibration in the PRO(not Dell) monitors do not lose tones

The PRO monitors and also the mentioned Dells supports 10-bit output

Look at the reviews:
Dell u2410 (the u2711 and u3011 are better)
Eizo CG243W

In the above reviews pay attention to:
-The UGRA test
-The panel brightness distribution
-The gamut coverage, the best place to compare,en/
-The calibration curves, the good ones are in 45º

BTW, the NEC PA241w-BK-SV is the sweet one...
The BK-SV version comes with the calibration combo, and there is some differences between
USA/Europe versions, see

Go SpectraView if you can.
