Dell's UltraSharp U3011 packs in the features (review)

The Dell UltraSharp U3011 has a surprising number for features for a 30-inch monitor.

Usually, 30-inch monitors are nothing to write home about. Sure, they're incredibly large and include a super-high 2560x1600 resolution, giving them copious amounts of screen real estate, but only a scant few include any calibration options beyond brightness. Also, most include only one or two different connection types.

The Dell UltraSharp U3011 is a different beast altogether.

The 30-inch Dell bucks the "high on performance, low on features" trend 30-inch monitors have reflected for years.

Not only does the Dell include more connection options than most other monitors, regardless of screen size, but it also allows for the most customization options we've seen in a 30-incher, with a number of presets and the ability to get down, dirty, and gritty with the red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, and yellow. Yellow, people...yellow.

Everything has a price, however, so check out the full review to see if all these extras are worth it. Sure, it's an Editor's Choice, but don't let that stop you.
