Dell UltraSharp U2913WM

 

Dual-monitor configurations are ideal for users who need to view multiple applications simultaneously, but not everybody has the desktop real estate and video hardware needed to accommodate two monitors and their associated cables. Enter the Dell...

Great color quality.Very good grayscale performance. Generous port selection

Vertical viewing angle could be better. No speakers. Mediocre motion handling

The Dell UltraSharp U2913WM is s unique 29-inch ultra-widescreen monitor offering a 21:9 aspect ratio and solid IPS color and grayscale quality but it may not be the best choice for gamers.

Review Roundup: Get a bigger picture with an ultrawide 29-inch display

 

Dell consistently produces great monitors, and the U2913WM is no exception, although we don't care for the Autocolor feature that "optimizes" the display for the currently active application.

Excellent off-axis viewing ; Very flexible stand ; Overall very good image quality

No audio speakers ; Autocolor feature has its quirks

All four of these displays performed well overall. For folks who want to use an extrawide screen to handle multimedia, the LG 29EA93P, with its decent built-in speakers, would be the best choice. The NEC EA294WMi delivers the most accurate colors and...

Dell U2913WM review

 

The Dell U2913WM is unlike any other monitor we've tested. It's 29in wide and has a huge resolution of 2,560x1,080, giving it an aspect ratio of 21:9. It took us a little while to get used to the shape, but we were soon reluctant to go back to the...

Dell’s novel super-wide monitor has fantastic image quality and a wide range of inputs

Expert review by:

Dell UltraSharp U2913WM

 

Despite some technical flaws, the U2913WM is a good monitor with an excellent price. At AU$599, it's enough that people will be asking if they want a 27-inch with the extra 360 vertical pixels, or if 21:9 is in their future.

Games are incredibly immersive ; Quite affordable ; Great choice of inputs ; Attractive design ; Better than average HDMI performance

USB 3.0 ports on side sometimes acted at USB 2.0 speeds ; Dell's new menu buttons are less intuitive ; If a movie isn't natively 21:9, it can look rather bad ; Still drew power when switched off ; Some inversion tests turned purple

What's rather spectacular about the U2913WM, though, is the price — at AU$599, it's enough that people will be asking if they want a 27-inch with the extra 360 vertical pixels, or if 21:9 is in their future.

Dell goes ultra-wide with its UltraSharp U2913WM monitor, which combines sterling image quality with a novel 21:9 aspect ratio

Consumer review by:

Seems to have a bad component that degrades over time.

 

Dell was generally very good about supporting this problem, and happily sent me a replacement right away with just a few hiccups in the process. I contacted Dell again a few days ago (9 months after the first replacement), and this time I had to jump...

Nice color, snappy latency and good overall performance. I really like the extra wide aspect ratio for the software I work in, since it has tool panels on the sides which would otherwise cramp my work space

The monitor has trouble sleeping. The first one I got had problems almost right away, then degraded quickly. Dell sent me a new one fairly quickly. The second one seemed perfect at first, then failed once a month, then once a week, and now only 9...

This Dell U2913WM Monitor

 

Best ever Birthday present ever!!!! Thanks Brother!!!!

I can have plethora of multimedia pages up and going at the same time, photos & videos are always crisp and clear. And while I'm gaming viewing looks more 3D like, and the thinner bezel is an awesome idea

It's a Dell, there's never any cons - Ever

First LED IPS

 

Overall, the pros beat the cons with extreme prejudice. The screen is just beautiful, from gaming, movies and working it all just fits perfectly. When multitasking just have to move a window to the side and no more ALT+TABing all over the list of...

Great work space, worth 2 monitors together ; Great gaming space, most games support 2560 x 1080 ; Great movie space, no more black bars on 1080p movies, full display on screen

Promo picture misleading, it shows FULL screen use, in reality there is a 7mm black frame on sides and on top the monitor screen ; The 1080 vertical feels a little squashed at first but that's due the pixel size, you get used to it ; Slight noticeably...
