"I tested the screen as well in the sRGB preset which returned less than good results in default mode, even though the screen had been factory calibrated. Gamma was set up correctly by this factory calibration but colour temp and luminance were significantly out from the target points. Colour accuracy was also pretty poor, with dE average of 4.4 and 11.8 maximum. Some screens don't let you calibrate very well in sRGB emulation mode, but we had some good results with our test of the Dell U2410 before. Thankfully the U2711 performed well here, allowing us to improve the colour accuracy to 0.5 average dE and 1.0 maximum. The other targets were also met nicely. Again,ICC profile available if you want it in our ICC profile database."
Also, the person you replied to doesn't say anything about what the web standard is - he talks about professional software that supports aRGB and finds that superior. The web standard is sRGB because most panels can't even display the sRGB gamut, so it is better to go with sRGB - that much we can agree on.
But I'm sorry, if web content is your thing, why the hell do you even care? Most web content is compressed to shit so that a normal internet stream can actually handle it - it makes the entire colorspace argument totally obviated.
Even without compression, if the gradations in sRGB color space at the same bit level are noticeably better than aRGB (the only technical example where sRGB is better than aRGB), I'll be shocked. Considering how the color processing is internally 12-bit, and displayed as 8-bit (10 if you like FRC), the difference will be even more negligible on this particular panel.
Anyways, to each his own. Yes - the WEB standard is sRGB, and a lot of things have grown around that, but that doesn't mean it should be THE standard. The increased gamut in aRGB is so much more obvious than the smoother gradation you can see in sRGB - an advantage that is lost more and more with higher bit depth.

2) I am not arguing, just learning.
iii) Layoff with the 'real designer' horse-shyt. Design is a skill, not a job. I absolutely am a designer. Just lay out the facts, or send me to a site to learn myself. This monitor had awesome reviews and owning it has been a great, affordable step-up for me.
People don't have to buy something because I recommend it. But, as a user, I think my opinion could be helpful to the right person reading it. Back and forth between reviewers that simply have a different take on it helps no one. I like my Bamboo tablet over my work's Intuos tablet, you wanna chop on that? Maybe have a poke at the fact I use a Canon xTi instead of a Mark III? I'm on a budget, dude.
Note: Meant to mention, I am mainly designing for print. Web, some, print more. Carry on.

And from your post, I can't still believe you're real designer, sorry. I don't know any professional designer who uses PC. I do both Web and iPhone interface design as a job as well as photography for fun, and I know what I'm talking about.
A real designer would recommend either sRGB or Eizo wide gamut (pro only).

All that grab-assing aside, though, I am not saying there aren't better monitors out there, but I have had no trouble with mine. I've come up from using old CRT monitors, to LCD and LEDS, to imacs, to cinema displays and now this. While yes, I agree the 27" Apple display is fantastic, and I would prefer it, I don't have the extra $400 for it...and the mac I work on is the one for work, so why bother buying one I have to get adapters left and right for my personal PC.
Not that I have to defend myself to you, since I could care less what you think. Gotta go, success just called. Talk to you later!

As long as you see your own RAW files on your wide gamut screen, it's fine, but once you upload pictures to any site, Flickr or etc. the color will be extremely strange and you don't know why. And your iPhone pictures will have strange color on this monitor. You will end up watching sRGB emulation mode (which looks worse than sRGB monitor) 99.99% of your time in real life.
Don't spread strange belief, please.

Have it. Love it. Recommend it. I'm a graphic designer at home, which is just to illustrate I am not using it for gaming or anything like that (though, some Monkey Island looks stellar on it)
At first, I freaked because I bought a recondition on eBay and had no idea how to change input devices. Default was the display port connection and I was HDMI from the computer. Once you realize it's a fancy button system that you just kinda rub your finger over, it's a pretty slick deal. Beautiful colors.

Well this is now the poor-man version since 2713h is out.
I don't see why any one would not prefer LED over CCFL,
The warm up time, heater nature, power hungry, grainy 2711 kind of annoys me from time to time.

They might have a similar source but with the Ultrasharps vs a Korean monitor you are paying the extra to have a premium panel that's guaranteed not to have flaws or your money back, a lot more connections options, superior OSD, and a 3 year warranty.
If price is your number one concern then the benefits of this monitor is not for you.

It's time to leave behind the obsolete sRGB color space. Now that even blue+green LED backlights can be made inexpensively that support AdobeRGB, there is very little excuse for perpetuating such a limited space.
The human eye can see much more than sRGB.
We aren't still using EGA or VGA graphics, for good reason. It's time to leave sRGB behind, too.
This monitor has an effective sRGB emulation mode according to prad.de
