    Very nice monitor. No backlight bleed or DPs yet *knock on wood.* However, as 1440p isn't mainstream, it means that you cannot make full use of the screen yet, but when you can, it's bloody damn sexy. Perfect size 80cm away from the screen and there is a visible difference from 1080p

    2016 rewrite:
    Love the screen! Can not live without 1440p. Been away 3 weeks and what a feeling when you come back. You do 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 the screen to.

    Very clever with the nice edges, the screen also has DELL's perfect VESA mount that everyone should use.

    The USB hub is a classic in this series and is perfect. Has the keyboard, mouse, and my wireless xbox 360 receiver connected to the screen with only one usb 3 cable connected to the computer that connects all; perfect.

    1440p is good for text but I do not stand out with DPI problems, many developers are completely crazy about their application scaling. Steam does not scale, and many others.
    But it is much better today compared to October 2015. More and more developers support high DPI resolutions.
    However, you can "disable scaling at high DPI" compatibility in many applications, but then the text will be very small.

    Love DELL's software that lets you change brightness and much more in Windows!
    http://www.delldisplaymanager.com/ddmsetup.exe The program also supports commands so I created my own:
    ddm.exe / SetNamedPreset Standard / SetBrightnessLevel 26 / Exit

    That's what I'm driving when I use the screen from 9 am to 8 pm, outside of those times I use another profile that's easy for my eyes:

    ddm.exe / SetNamedPreset 5000K / SetBrightnessLevel 8 / Exit

    The only problem that occurs with the program is that sometimes when the screen goes to sleep mode, 5000K disappears and another becomes strange, then run the command to restore 5000K color.

    The program also has many used settings, such as modifying how things are pulled to the corner and stuck. Called "Easy Arrange" and is very modular.
    There is also a function that changes around the set presets depending on what you have active. Fullscreen games go to a "Game" preset, etc.

    Have two for about a year now. Excellent picture, there's really nothing to complain about. Working with web development and playing some computer games (strategy games) may not have the world's highest demands on screens.

    Definitely satisfied with my purchase!

    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.

    Good picture and color rendering. The only thing to complain about is that it's a bit bitter if you have multiple computers that go into different inputs, such as an HDMI and a Display Port (type a PC on a dock and a Mac side about). It has no setting to automatically select the screen, and the button to switch between inputs only works if there is a screen connected to the active port! It can only switch between two connected screens. If it is set to DP and you connect a computer to HDMI then you have to enter the menu to switch screen, select HDMI, then OK.

    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.

    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.

    Great picture, the colors are sharp and accurate. The high resolution is perfect for productivity, for example, 3d modeling. You can fit quite a lot more than 1080p.

    Although this is not a game screen, I think it works well for this. It is only 60Hz but it is about as high fps, I get a GTX 1060th

    I was probably a bit lucky because my copy has almost no "IPS glow" or "Backlight bleed" at all.

    Working as a programmer and uses two such screens here at my workplace. Must say I was very impressed with the screens and its color reproduction for this price.

    Originally, I was afraid that the 25 "would be too small to 2560x1440 would be pleasant, but it really works just fine. Was so impressed that I even bought a similar screen to have at home too.

    Run Windows on the screens without scaling and still works great. The solitary monitor I have at home are used among others for photo editing, which also works great.

    How screens works that play on the other hand, I can not comment on. It gets someone else to do. :)

    It should be mentioned that I run both at work and at home via the DisplayPort connector, which works perfect. At work, I have the two U2515H monitors DisplayPort chainade (MST), which is also sick nice. The first screen is switched then into the second screen and the second screen plugged into my laptop via a single cable. Incredibly nice to not have to mess with more than one connection to two screens. :)

    Regarding the HDMI connection, however, I can not utala me how good / bad it works. A few times I've tested without problems, but think HDMI is more dependent on how good / bad your HDMI connection is made from your respective video cards.

    None of the 3st U2515H monitors, neither the two at work (ordered via ATEA) or alone at home (ordered via CDON) have some defective pixels.

    Jättefin screen, develops on it.
    Good ratio between resolution and size. Nice to come up over 1080 Swamp.
    Good menus, where you do not need to see what the button does in the dark before you press, just press any that appear on-screen menu up.
    Silmmad and elevating, however, is the physical color a little nineties. Låtssassilver and sad black plastic. But someone on technology manufacturers association lawmakers seem to like things that they have to follow the rules even on Dell ;-)
    xtra plus for cord-hide-flap on the back. Perfect if you have a show office on the ground floor of the tough neighborhoods in town.

    Bought as demoex on Complete to 2500. It is well worth the price with crisp text, fine colors, thin frame and USB Hub with 5 ports.

    The resolution 2560x1440 feels like a bigger lift than you think from 1920x1080. However, it stands next to my 24 "4K display running in retinaupplösning from my Macbook Pro, and this marked difference in the text even me look bad. For film and games is good enough, however, just fine. I also use it vertically to get fit more windows or long code files. One can also fit more than half the DN's front page like this :)

    Another minus is the deplorable touch buttons. Sometimes it will not respond at all and you have to press hard. Sometimes it feels like it's enough to just touch them. Since it is also an IPS panel, so you can expect light bleeding and poorer blacks, but this is something I can live with when weighing up the benefits.

    Stunning looking and sharp screen with good color reproduction and inputs / outputs.
    Unfortunately, I have received two copies with dead pixels. Feels like lottery also offers premium screens at that point. Important to note is that Dell's so-called premium pixel guarantee applies only bright pixels (up to 6 dead pixels have to accept as a user). Trist at a premium screen in 2016. It will be a different manufacturer.

    Went from Asus PB238Q and this was an ok lift. Have no problem as previous people had, but like everything so far.

    However, the approximately 1cm black edges around, (bezel) thought that the display would cover the entire panel, but it is certainly due to technical reasons it does not work otherwise. But may be worth knowing if you're going to have a number next to each other.

    Dell U2515H can certainly be classified as "Good enough". Especially if you combine with measuring equipment. As photo editing or the like with a crispy budget is entirely possible. Considering the price range, the screen image as a whole. Dell U2515H is a very good all-round display.

    Totally sick, what a difference when I come from the 1680 resolution. Was a bit worried that it would mess up when my video card only has HDMI output, but after I set a custom resolution in nvidia panel so it works flawlessly. Have had some problems with red flickering but it's because my HDMI Mini to HDMI is a bit loose.

    Can only agree with others here that celebrates the screen. The screen is both darkness and sunlight (if not direct sunlight - but the screen can handle it well?). I miss the dynamic brightness to the surrounding area, perhaps one has to be some price ranges to get it. Lite Screen bleeding at my ex, is only visible if the brightness is high and the image is dark.

    Do not miss that one can buy for a speaker that attaches underneath the screen and connected by USB. It is right rejected purely aurally, but very discreet.

    Really happy with the screen, good factory calibration, and after a little tinkering with profiles etc. so it became even better.

    + Image quality, build quality, ergonomics
    + Best IPS screen, I tried to play on the response rate
    + Easy AG coating that is well-balanced, no sparkle!
    + Dedicated USB port with charging voltage to the back

    - Touch buttons are a bit tough to use, but on the other hand, it is neat and as often moves one they do not

    Had not expected to get with a display port cable, but it came with a dp> MDP cable in the box. Sure there are better monitors, but not of the 2800 I paid, full marks from me.

    (Lowers rating due to price increase that occurred recently. I think it is not as affordable as before but still a crazy good screen, just a bit on the expensive side right now.)

    Bought screen as "Bargain Being" class-2 on Webhallen but the monitor packaging may not even have been broken for more than 5 minutes. Moreover, the screen does not even assembled. Got the screen very cheap as I said (2549kr) and then the product was basically brand new so it did not bother me.

    The screen fills all my hopes and wishes of a screen may have to meet, and works perfectly with everything from Photoshop to games. Have you thought about buying the screen make it you will be very satisfied. For those who doubt the size so I can say that when I switched from 1080p 27 "to the 25" lovely IPS panel, so I feel that this is bigger than my old Fujitsu screen.

    BUY clearly!

    Sitting here writing this on the screen right now. I have received a virtually perfect copies, no dead pixels / pixel errors, virtually no backlight bleed! Unbelievably good. There is little if one really checks extremely closely, a tiny bit in the lower corners, but it is so little that you can hardly see. Are not after, you will not find it. The color reproduction is quite good and viewing angles are really 178 degrees. You can check completely by hand, and all the colors look the same! The edges are only 8 mm, which makes the screen look very stylish out.

    Build quality seems really stable, and with both the pivot, tilt, swivel and raise / lower function, I see nothing missing! Additionally, the VESA mount so you can put it on a separate support. The built-in USB hub is worth gold when using the screen with a laptop, then you can have both a keyboard, mouse and other things connected to the screen and not have to disconnect and lots of cables every time you come home.

    The only negative I can think of is that the box it came in was incredibly difficult to pack out, I could barely get out the screen from the box.

    I put 9/10 until further notice, because I had only screen for a few hours so I'm not sure if I will find something I bothers me that pulls down the grade. Will update the rating in a few weeks when I tested more thoroughly.

    - Not the best blackness
    - Seems to be common to the backlight light bleeding through the edges

    A very nice screen that provides neutral, sharp and pleasing image. The screen is calibrated in the factory and works for image editing, web development and other everyday tasks. Had screen had a little better blacks and a little less tendency to bleed, it had become full pot.

    Really happy with my purchase!

    Bought two pieces. one to play a bit on, one to look at the film / youtube / 4K material.

    + The size and resolution (1440p looks pretty good sharp on the 25 '')
    + Colour reproduction (really good right out of the box, but close to perfect after calibration)
    + Response (is excellent to play on if you're used to 60Hz)
    + Design (thin '' framework '' is great when you have them side by side)
    + Minimum backlight bleeden I've seen on a screen for a long time
    + Minimum IPS Glow (which is available on all IPS panels, but it is so little, so I do not even think of it)
    + The price (about 3090kr / unit when I bought them)
    + Vesa mount

    Currently has nothing negative to say, know that some reported problems with touch buttons before, something that Dell seems to have solved? For I have not had the problem, it was the only thing I was worried when I made my purchase.

    Excellent image, had never seen anything better before. Out of the box is really good calibrated, it will be better needed professional tools. The only thing I have done is to pull down the brightness to 21 when the backlight is crazy powerful.
    My pictures taken with SLR looks really good, and because blacks and gamma calibrated correctly, you can also see details in underexposed images I thought were useless before.

    1440p is much better than 1080p, and as I sit at my desk, I barely individual pixels. Tend to scale up web pages between 150 and 200% to get the right size of the text, and then it becomes really sharp and pleasing to read as it does not become pixelated as my older low-resolution screens. Just remember to put on the "let me choose one scaling level for all my displays" Windows settings for resolution, otherwise the text magnified by interpolation, and it looks woefully out.

    I installed Dell Display Manager, and from there you can change the brightness directly in Windows rather than fiddle around with touch buttons. There are also settings to change the window Snap feature in Windows so there are more zones to Snapa window to, and thus take advantage of the high resolution well in multitasking.

    Otherwise, the screen is really nice, and the USB hub is excellent. Has now only three cables running down from my desk. Keyboard, mouse and so on. is connected to the screen as if it were an iMac.

    On the whole, I can not but recommend the screen. It is excellent both for jobs on the images and for those who just want a monitor that is accurate and easy on the eyes.

    Recently got home this screen and it is absolutely stunning. My partner has it connected to its ultrabook that only has two USB ports, so the screen built-in USB hub is greatly appreciated. Although I am very pleased with my Eizo FlexScan EV2736 I must admit I'm a little jealous.

    The screen has good color rendition and sharpness. The surface looks like a cross between matte / glossy and very pleasant to look at. Very narrow frame around the screen gives in my opinion a true luxurious feel. My screen now looks like a giant ugly brick in comparison.

    The errors that others seem to have complained, but we escaped, is: pixel error, light leakage in the lower left corner and to the capacitive (touch) buttons function properly. Can also imagine that the specified b / w the response time of 19ms makes it unsafe for picky eaters gamers.

    I'm writing this on the screen and I can say that when it comes to color and detail, I'm so pleased you could huh. But my copy happens to have a pixel stuck and a little screen bleeding in the left corner. I did not expect this as it's a Dell UltraSharp but there it is. It is actually not something that bothers me and pixel jammed may well fix itself with time. I think you can return the screen though it's only a pixel stuck, then it is a UltraSharp and other policy applies.
    I have tried to play 3 games so far only, these are World of Warcraft, Just Cause 2 and Counter Strike Global Offensive. I can point it out to see a lot more and it gives a certain advantage, since so everything looks much better than 1080p TN! I have compared to a TN 144Hz panel and a 60Hz TN panel. Xl2420TE is 144Hz which I have and it has betydelig more bleeding and bizarre colors in comparison. I believe that the 60Hz with better picture is better than a "smooth" viewing experience. There are companies that do ~ 120Hz 1440p IPS displays but these I have no experience. They are overclocked with a custom PCB but has lower quality and are unpredictable.
    I highly recommend this monitor for everything you can do on a computer! It has provided me no ghosting or "lag" and this comes from someone who is familiar with a 144Hz TN 1 ms panel.
