Dell UltraSharp U2711 review


The screen uses an IPS panel (In-plane Switching) that can display colours better than most others, including Dell's older 27-inch model the U2709W. In keeping with the current trend, the Dell UltraSharp U2711 features a 16:9 wide-screen aspect ratio...

The Dell UltraSharp U2711 is an absolutely enjoyable 27-inch monitor. With an awe-inspiring screen resolution, a quality IPS panel, future-proof colour gamut and wide variety of input options, people who do not mind spending more for a good product...

Three 27" IPS LCDs: UltraSharp U2711, DS-277W, And MultiSync PA271W


Many of you asked for a round-up of 27" IPS-based displays, and here it is. Although these screens feature similar specifications, you might be ...

There's a general perception that IPS-based displays offer superior performance to those based on TN technology, but that isn't always the case. Although in-plane switching does improve the viewing angle issues and colour reproduction suffered by...

Dell U2711 27inch Widescreen Monitor Review


prowess. The HP might have been pricey compared to similarly sized TN-based panels, but the image quality, particularly for games and photo editing, was sublime

Despite what is essentially a glowing feature set that does, for once, translate into real world performance, deciding whether the Dell U2711 should be your next monitor is far from an easy question to answer. IPS technology does have one or two...

Dell U2711


U2711 is Dell's new 27-inch monitor with IPS panel and an extremely high 2560x1440 pixel resolution. U2711 is the successor to 27-inch model 2709W but now Dell will be utilizing the IPS panel technology instead of the S-PVA, as well as incorporating a...

Response time; Price; No pivot; Minor Overdrive trailing

Dell U2711 is a fantastic screen. It transfers the positive picture elements from U2410 into 27 inches and adds an extremely high resolution of 2560x1440 pixels. The resolution makes U2711 ideal for CAD or other desktop space consuming tasks.

Dell UltraSharp U2711


This monitor is bursting with video ports. At the rear of the cabinet are HDMI and DisplayPort connections, two DVI ports, a VGA port, component video ports, and a composite video port. There are also three additional USB ports, one of which is an...

Very good color and light grayscale performance. Lots of A/V ports and multimedia features. Wide viewing angle. High res screen

Pricey. Some trouble displaying dark grays. No pivot adjustment

The Dell UltraSharp U2711 lives up to its name and displays an excellent array of colors. While it may have some trouble with the dark grays this monitor makes up for that in its numerous features and keeping a good track record, as far as Dell's go.

Dell UltraSharp U2711 review


Dell's UltraSharp U2711 is one of the best performing monitors we've seen; but at $1,049, its price will be prohibitive to some buyers. However, the U2711 earns its high price with incredible performance, a plethora of connection options, and the...

The Dell UltraSharp U2711 has a super high-resolution screen that shows images in a fidelity we've not seen on a 27-inch display before. Also, the monitor exhibits deep blacks while watching movies, vibrant color in games, has a robust onscreen...

The Dell UltraSharp U2711 is missing the pivot option that the U2410 had. Also, buyers may find its price prohibitive.

The Dell UltraSharp U2711 is a feature-rich monitor with incredible performance that earns its high price.

Dell UltraSharp U2711 Review


In the age of full HD, the size of the display plays an as big a role as the quality of the content does. The time of 19-inch monitors being large has now become passe and now one would consider any monitor with a size of 24-inch as average. Over the...

The Dell UltraSharp U2711 is available in India at a price of Rs. 44,000. The monitor does exceedingly well in terms of design, features and performance and it does not have any real cons going for it. The only real issue we have is with its price, for...
