The monitor’s saturation default level is over saturated by itself. This helps reduce the response time of the transitions between different shades of grey, with the end result being an advertised response time here of 6ms G2G. Clearly you will need to calibrate this screen to get some better results. With the release of a new model from Dell always comes a lot of interest from potential buyers. Philips panel used in the NEC also uses a heavy dose of RTC to boost the responsivenss of the panel, and so this model can still be used as a reference for our response time tests.

This was very slight, and is an example of Sell overshoot which can be seen on quite a few models employing these technologies. Dell WFP Your browser does not support inline frames or is currently configured not to display inline frames.
Excellent colour accuracy once calibrated.
Dell UltraSharp WFP Review & Rating |
Dell was actually one of the first to com up with the rectangle screen monitor. The back of the stand features de,l handy cable tie also. You can see how useful it is to have this screen rotated for web pages! Dell have confirmed the panel is S-PVA technology, but we have yet to see a matching panel module from Samsung.
S-IPS panels can offer slightly wider viewing angles, and some people find them more suitable for colour critical work because they do not show this off-centre anomaly. Click for larger image.

In the features de,l, you get a fully functional base stand with pivot, swivel, and height adjustment. This item may be a floor model or store return that has been used. I attribute this to the monitor’s inability to display the very darkest shades of gray, which was evident on the DisplayMate www.
As a reminder, the graph on the right hand side above shows DeltaE dE 94 values across 16 shades of colours as measured by the device. However, as we’ll see later, the S-PVA panels also seem to suffer from input lag — more so than any other panel type.
The above video shows for those with a keen eye that this white halo-ing has disappeared mostly, and the ‘issue’ is no longer as easy to spot.
I was also impressed by the viewing-angle performance: They provide access to the onscreen display OSD menu system and can be used as hot keys for selecting the input source, changing the brightness and contrast, and activating the PIP Picture in Picture and PBP Picture by Picture viewing modes, both of which are handy for viewing images from two input sources at the same time.
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.
More demanding gamers however might be put off, as there appears to be a frame lag. Thankfully here, the wide viewing angles mean the image looks consistent across the screen.
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 delll the individual production lines. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
The WFP’s superb image quality, rich color rendition, deft handling of video and 3D gaming, adjustability, and multimedia functions helped it to garner an Editors’ Choice and make it well worth vell extra expense for those who demand the most in performance and features.

OSD menus, click for larger versions. The PIP picture in picture and PBP picture by picture modes let you view images from two input sources at the same time. See all 4 pre-owned listings. I like it very much, and I definitely recommend it to others! It should be noted that OSD adjustments only form part of the calibration process with the majority of changes being made automatically at the graphics card LUT level.
It is worth noting that panel uniformity can vary from one screen to another, and can depend on manufacturing lines, screen transport and other local factors.
This was taken when the monitor had only be switched on for a few moments. This monitor is a good buy! The above tables show the results when using default factory settings and when using my calibrated profile. Black bezel, with silver finish stand. Dell UH 24″ Click for larger version.
