Love the screen! Can not live without 1440p. Was away for 3 weeks and fyfan the feeling when you get back. One does not know the screen.
The colors are perfect for me and can be adjusted to different requirements. 99% sRGB so it covers everything I use to screen.
Very slim with the fancy edges, the screen also DELL perfect VESA mount that everyone should use.
USB hub is a classic in this series and is perfect. Have keyboard, mouse, and my Xbox 360 wireless receiver connected to the screen where there is only a USB 3 cable to your computer that connects everything; perfect.
1440p is fine for text but I can not stand DPI problems, many developers do not care completely of their application scaling. Steam is not scaled, and many others.
But it is much better today compared with October 2015. More and more developers supports high DPI resolutions.
However, one can "disable scaling on high DPI" - compatibility in many programs but then the text becomes very small.
Love DELL software that allows you to change the brightness, and more in Windows!

The program also supports commands so I created my own:
ddm.exe / SetNamedPreset Standard / SetBrightnessLevel 26 / Exit
That's what I drive when I use the screen times 09:00 to 20:00, outside of those times, I use a different profile that is easy on the eyes:
ddm.exe / SetNamedPreset 5000K / SetBrightnessLevel 8 / Exit
The only problemt that occurs with the program is that sometimes when the screen goes to sleep mode disappears 5000K color and it will be another strange, get then run the command to get back 5000K color.
The program also has many used settings, such as modifying the way things are drawn to corners and tight. Called "Easy Arrangement" and is very modular.
Is also a function that switches around ready presets depending on what one is active. Fullscreen game goes to a "Game" preset etc.
It is one of the best choice currently for general usage on 1440p 60fps.
The picture is neat and highly detailed, and i could say that it's large enough.
However, I found two minor things which made the monitor a bit less valuable in my eyes.
Firstly, It has a badly designed stand by(power) button. It is glowing with an extreme luminosity while the monitor is not turned on(precisely with breathing effect), and there is no available option to turn it off.
It's not a big deal, but on the others monitors that I've tried, the led was never a problem.
So basically, if you want to sleep in the same room, you'll need to turn off the monitor.
Secondly, It is not good for any kind of overlocking even on smaller resolutions.
I made few tests, and i could not reach a higher framerate without issues.
I don't think the freesync or g-sync would be a huge addition owing to its slow fps potential. It is certainly not great, but the other monitors which are apt for higher motion speeds are way pricier. So, in this pricerange it has a really good overall worth.
While there is such a scarce amount of material on the internet in 4k, and the needed hardware is very expensive in order to use them properly, i can't say that I would change to a 4k display yet.
That being said, I'd change this product to a faster and a little bigger version, perhaps in 27 inch size with 144hz.
Very happy with this screen, real boost from a 22 "1080p screen that had gigantic pixels compared to this. Today's mobile phone screens do a really picky with their high DPI ...
Had problems at the beginning of the screen lost the signal and shut off, have it connected via MDP input. It was very annoying and I had to turn off the screen for 30 seconds for it to be able to find the signal again.
But it resolved by enabla DP 1.2 of monitor display settings.
I would say that 2560x1440 is a little too high resolution for 25-inch. The text becomes very small.
Was bought for 3190kr from CDON. No dead pixels
Huge difference from a TN panel in terms of color reproduction!
1440p provides me with sufficient workspace for musikkomponerande and video editing.
Perhaps a little above or hypersensitive, but find that the screen may be too bright even at low light setting. Especially when I'm working in dark environments.
