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...

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...

Dell U2913WM


If they could get this light bleed or brightness issue fixed this would be a perfect monitor to me. Also some of the OSD choices arent well explained..and the Dell Display Manager util is good but again some of the choices are not well documented or...

Lots of screen territory. Very nice OSD interface, makes it really easy to select items. NO DEAD PIXELS. Very uniform colors. The stand is excellent and very stable. I would buy this one over the LG. No external power adapter

I went thru 2 of the LG 29" ultra wide screen monitors, both had dead pixels and lots of light bleed or glare on the lower left hand side. The Dell has no DEAD PIXELS but the light "bleed' is still there. Its the same as with the LG's and they both use...

Best of the Best


This is one of the best ips monitor i've ever owned. It's costly, but you get what you pay for. Awesome 3 year warranty service from Dell

no SD memory slot like they have on most Dell Ultra displays

Consumer review by:

Not for gaming


This is truly an awesome monitor, but I wouldn't recommend it for gaming purposes.

Great monitor. Build quality you would expect from Dell. Lots of ports, great viewing angle, bright

Not a whole lot of games have this resolution available. When they do it feels pretty clunky, even compared to a three monitor setup. You actually have to turn your head left and right to see things on the HUD which is a pain

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

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.
