Dell S2740L

 

With its edge-to-edge glass, slim profile, and crystal-clear 27-inch screen, the Dell S2740L offers an enticing blend of style and performance. This sleek-looking monitor uses IPS (in plane switching) panel technology to deliver excellent color depth...

Sleek design. Great color and viewing angle performance. Energy efficient

Reflective screen. USB ports are hard to reach. One-year warranty

The Dell S2740L is a beautifully crafted 27-inch IPS monitor with a reasonable price tag. It's a solid performer that doesn't use much power, but its glossy screen can be mirror-like.

Dell S2740L Review

 

LCD monitors have taken over the market and CRTs have been replaced by them over the years. They were once considered to be expensive replacements, but as LCD technology has become mainstream, we've seen prices collapse. Full HD 22-inch monitors are...

The Dell S2740L is a very good monitor for a number of reasons, but we’d honestly liked to have a slightly higher resolution on a monitor this size—something like 2560 x 1440. Still, a 27-inch HD display offers a very good experience for gaming, movies...

Dell S2740L

 

A stylish 27-inch monitor with a Full HD IPS panel for under £300.

Stylish, premium-looking, well-built design, Reasonable image quality, Decent connectivity, Superb OSD and controls

Glass front = reflections, Low resolution = visible pixels, Limited adjustability, Cheaper alternatives also offer 3D, Connectivity difficult to reach

Dell S2740L review

 

It's very easy to get distracted by the Dell S2740L. Not because of its eye-catching frameless 27in IPS display, its 1,920x1,080 resolution or its low-end price point. Instead, all we could think about was just how shiny and glossy it is.

Excellent brightness and contrast levels, but its glossy display will drive you mad

Dell S2740L review

 

Dig deeper, though, and the reason for its attractive price becomes apparent. Yes, the Dell S2740L does use high-quality components, but the resolution is considerably lower than that of Dell's own U2713HM or of Apple's LED Cinema Display review.

The Dell S2740L has some good things going for it. Its IPS panel gives it a wide viewing angle, its glossy screen helps to give photographic images depth, and its LED backlighting conserves some energy and space. The fairly low resolution might be...

great aesthetic design, great color accuracy, extremely fast input response

 

edge to edge glass looks amazing in person, cures the dull, grainy, washed out look you get with anti-glare coatings ; incredible input lag performance for an IPS display: just 2ms relative to a 60hz CRT ; excellent color accuracy when using custom RGB...

unexceptional motion clarity due to "inverse ghosting" effect ; display exhibits an odd color uniformity issue where the left side is slightly red shifted and the right side is slightly blue shifted

Awesome turnaround

 

Zake was amazing. I needed the order turned round quickly an they accommodated. They even acknowledged my request to expedite it thru with an email. Great job all!

This turned out to be more than I expected for the price. Very functional, easy to use. I have it connected to 2 different computer sytems, and can easily change the inputs thru the front button panel

It has no anti-glare. I notice it at first and after a few minutes I'm no longer aware of it

Dell S2740L after 1 year

 

I have a really nice monitor at work, and was worried this monitor would wind up being inferior at its lower price point. Instead, this monitor blows my work monitor out of the water. Its at least equal to any monitor I have seen in terms of response...

The color quality is unbelievable on this screen. Its also bright, sharp, no blur or anything - video games and movies look great. (I play Titanfall pretty often on it - lots of super fast motion)

The screen has a very shiny finish which reflects light sources behind you. I had to put drapes over the windows in the back of my home office. Very reflective
