Mine arrived yesterday. I ordered on 1/23. So literally 4 days from order to doorstep in Michigan with standard shipping. Initial impressions are VERY VERY awesome.
nice. i ordered the 26th, and when i talked to them earlier.. they told me they are back ordered, and not to expect it for a bit. so who knows. i had amazon confirm that product is indeed the 3415W, so i placed the order. we'll see tomorrow (if this damn snow would finally end).
Wow, then it's an awesome price. You get the benefit of Amazon's CS/Return Policy and a nice discount from the MSRP of $1199.
I think you'll be disappointed in total screen size if you went from 4 U3014 down to only 2 U3415. You'll be missing the height you're normally use to in portrait mode.How does this work as 2? It seems odd since if you were to do surround, gaming, movies isn't the height too small?
I am asking since I had 4 Dell 30" U3014 in Portrait mode and this could be a good sub.
Also, how thick is the bezel, is it possible to do 3d on it?
This is an interesting idea as its the same price I paid for 4......I think you'll be disappointed in total screen size if you went from 4 U3014 down to only 2 U3415. You'll be missing the height you're normally use to in portrait mode.
Now if you went with 4 U3415, that would be interesting. I would flip the two on top so that the slimmer top bezel faced down and the Dell logo is towards the ceiling. That quad setup would be an immense display to sit in front of.
As for the new bezel design, it's a big improvement in my opinion compared to prior Dell models. If the monitor is off, the appearance is there's only the slightest bezel on the sides and top. Once on, the display has just under 1/2" bezel from the image to edge of bezel.
so i did get mine today after all. this is what i ended up with. no dead pixels or dust. not sure what i plan to do yet.. going to use it for a day or two.
This looks pretty mild for a camera shot...remember...this is not what it looks like to your eye.
Camera sensors make BLB look 100x worse than it really is. I'd keep it for sure
Can anyone confirm, that the Dell Display Manager (DDM) reduces the Backlight Bleeding?
Please also provide a comparison picture with the DDM switched ON and OFF.
Would be tremendously helpful!
yut. it's really not too bad at all. i'm already in love with it. huge improvement coming from a U2713HM. no complaints with gaming (other than below) either. probably take a bit to adjust my workflow to 21:9.. but yeah, i have no regrets purchasing this. i do need a bigger desk now, however.
i do seem to be having a problem alt-tabbing in/out of full screen games, and i'm sure it's probably something i've done wrong. i get the flicker, like it's changing res or refresh rate. nvidia cp and games both set to 3440x1440@60hz (over mDP) though. so.. somebody point me in the right direction, please. hah.
Has anyone's monitor turned off (display turns black) for a second or two while using it? It happened to me twice over the past month. I wasn't doing anything demanding, just browsing the web. It recovers by itself, and there's no error messages or anything. Display port glitch?
