Dell Ultrasharp U2711 review

 

Is an IPS panel worth the extra outlay?

Near immaculate IPS visuals ; Huge resolution but manageable size

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...

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...

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.

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...
