Add in a panel that is only 8-bit and this is far short of Dell's previous "professional" level ultrasharp offerings IMHO.
Its not meant to replace the - as you put it - "professional" Ultrasharp U2711. This is an excellent monitor for the home user where a wide color gamut simply is a non-issue. Games are designed around the lowest common denominator: sRGB. IMHO the pseudo 10bit panel of the U2711 is good BUT is hampered by a less than optimal AG coating. This monitor makes the most of the tools it is given and the end result is one gorgeous monitor which can compete against PLS based monitors. IMHO this is what it meant to do: Kick Samsung and their PLS tech in the teeth. At this it is an amazing success.
