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...

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


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.

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 color reproduction suffered by...

Quick Review: Dell UltraSharp U2711 27-inch LCD Monitor


We start our new Quick Reviews in style with a sensational looking 27" monitor from Dell. Looks can be deceiving, though. But are they in this case?

A great OSD, sharp resolution and stylish looks make for a beautiful monitor. You're going to pay for it, though. It's worth taking the time and calling Dell or finding a local rep to try and knock a good couple of %s off the retail price or just...

Dell UltraSharp U2711 and the Samsung SyncMaster F2380


They say that you get what you pay for, and that's certainly true with the two monitors on review today. The Dell UltraSharp U2711 performs like a dream, but boasts a price likely to make many consumers pause. The Samsung SyncMaster F2380, on the other...

Dell UltraSharp U2711


For those who can afford its four-digit asking price, Dell's 27-inch UltraSharp U2711 offers stellar performance, and enough ports to connect just about anything.

Excellent performance, none of the viewing angle issues inherent in cheaper LCDs, connectivity options aplenty; matte screen

Expensive, bulky compared to many other LCDs, screen isn't LED-backlit

For gamers who demand extremely high resolutions, or content creation professionals who need all the screen real estate they can get, plus excellent performance and color reproduction, the Dell UltraSharp U2711 is an excellent choice. We were...

"Best monitor I have ever owned."


I bought this monitor to replace another brand which was unreliable. I primarily use it for photography but I also use it for browsing and have installed an HD TV card. It works well with all applications and is particularly good with photo editing. In...

Superb build quality. Simple to set up. Height adjustment and swivel are excellent and easy to use. Glare free screen. Very reliable.

No pivot from landscape to portrait, otherwise I would have rated it at 5 stars.

Great features and OSD, problems with colors


Impressive spects for a low price

I bought the Dell Ultrasharp U2711 and I have a problem with the colors: They look cheep/not natural, especially the red tones ; I switched through the color presets like "Cold", "Warm", "Adobe RGB", etc but this does not change my impression that the...
