Well, the Dell U3415W monitor arrived sooner than I expected and boy, the box was absolutely massive and heavy weighing at nearly 16.5kg!
I actually had to put it on the back seat of my car as it wouldn’t fit in the boot given the width of the box so this is definitely one of the larger gadgets I’ve bought over the years.
If you want to know why I chose the Dell U3415W to replace my trusty 30″ Apple Cinema HD monitor you can check out my previous article here.
However, one of the interesting things about this monitor was that it included a factory calibration report (which is the first monitor I’ve bought that has come with one). The report covers sRGB tuning, grey-scal tracking, gamma, brightness uniformity and colour uniformity.
Anyway, here’s the unboxing video for your viewing enjoyment 🙂
