This is only a guide of the uniformity of the sample screen we have for review. An important thing to consider for most users is how a screen will perform out of the box and with some basic manual adjustments. Click for larger version. This monitor is a good buy! If not, this won’t represent an issue, and the WFP is still an excellent choice offering great all round performance and features. Hopefully this review covers all the possible early complaints about the screen, including the ‘issues’ which some users had reported.

In normal practice, for viewing normal content, including photos, I doubt you would ever really notice an issue with this.
Dell have done a decent job with the DCR here, so if this feature is something you like, it’s another plus point of the WFP model. Its height is adjustable mm up or down. The lowest-priced item that has been used or worn previously.

The screen does show the signature off-centre contrast shift inherent to VA matrices, but this is only very minor, and to be honest, not something which has ever personally bothered me in practice.
Maybe some users notice it to a larger degree, but if you do, return the screen to Dell for a replacement. With the model’s del, came some early discussion about its performance across the internet.
No matter what I tried, I could not get the colour accuracy to be much better than this at all while using the sRGB mode. Dell have long had a reputation for producing good quality screens, with high end panels and often a fantastic range of ergonomic adjustments and connectivity options. Maximum dE was also very high at The panel uniformity was affected ever so slightly by the pink tinting issues some users have spotted, but it is so minor I doubt you would ever notice this in practice to be honest.
I’ve always been a big fan of this size screen since the high resolution of xcombined with a comfortable pixel pitch of 0. All in all, the functionality and connectivity of the WFP is fantastic, and even exceeds the WFP model before it. The listed spec suggests that the screen is capable of a DCR of up to Both are a matt finish which makes photographing nice and easy, and avoids obvious finger prints!
No real issues here with the WFP. Again, this was one of the early reported ‘issues’ with the screen, with users reporting that the WFP’s input lag was very high.
Trending Price New. As you can hopefully see click image to enlargethe uniformity as a whole was pretty good, but the corners did show a small degree of backlight leakage. Another of the early reported issues with the screen is that the text can appear with shadows, and the sharpness is some how not correct.
Some users who game may well find problems with the delay here, which is a shame. Input lag is very high.

Obviously this element of our test will be quite specific to our individual unit, and it must be considered that uniformity can vary depending on stock, shipping methods and the individual production lines. The screen was a little bright however for comfortable use.
Full range of interface options shown, click for larger version. The bezel is black in colour, while the stand is a silver. Colour Quality and Accuracy. There is also access to the screen’s sRGB simulation preset mode which emulates the sRGB colour space and reduces the colour gamut.
Another thing to note is that the screen does feature hardware level aspect ratio control. The gamma was now corrected to 2. This was a relief, but what I could spot was some slight white trailing behind the mouse pointer which you can hopefully spot in the video.

For those who are interested, I couldn’t detect any buzzing or sound from the built in power supply either, but the screen does get quite warm after extended use. I activated the DCR in the OSD and measured the two extremes of brightness and darkness where the backlight intensity was being regulated.
