Dell UltraSharp 27 (U2717D) review

 

The Dell UltraSharp U2717D is essentially a bigger version of the UltraSharp 24 U2417D , but it offers a higher Quad HD resolution with slightly better pixel density, and I find that both make a noticeable improvement. While the 24-inch model is nice,...

The Dell UltraSharp 27 (U2717D) is bright, with good general-purpose resolution and color quality.

Very good performance. Bezel-free design. Highly adjustable stand. Good port selection.

Expensive. No advanced color settings.

Conclusion Whether you're looking for a 27-inch monitor to use in a side-by-side, multi-display configuration or simply prefer the bezel-free look, the Dell UltraSharp 27 InfinityEdge Monitor U2717D will not disappoint. Its IPS panel delivers...
