Dell Ultrasharp - Adobe RGB?

Hi,

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
http://www.eizo.com/global/products/...ors/index.html

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

Look at the reviews:
Dell u2410 (the u2711 and u3011 are better)
http://www.prad.de/en/monitore/revie...ell-u2410.html
NEC PA241W
http://www.prad.de/en/monitore/revie...ec-pa241w.html
Eizo CG243W
http://www.prad.de/en/monitore/revie...zo-cg243w.html

In the above reviews pay attention to:
-The UGRA test
-The panel brightness distribution
-The gamut coverage, the best place to compare http://www.iccview.de/content/view/3/7/lang,en/
-The calibration curves, the good ones are in 45º
see http://i605.photobucket.com/albums/t...ff/ccurves.png

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 http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/...erence_271.htm

Go SpectraView if you can.
