Gamut and Colour Accuracy
As an everyday monitor, connected via DisplayPort, the UltraSharp U2718Q delivers solid if not spectacular results. We like to see non-photographic monitors offer full coverage of the sRGB gamut and at least 75 per cent of the AdobeRGB, and the Dell is close to the mark on both fronts.
Curiously, Dell's bundled calibration report intimates a colour accuracy of less than two Delta-E when tested at the factory using a Colour Analyser CA310. Our Datacolor Spyder 4 Elite isn't quite so forgiving, putting the score at a below-average 2.60.
