Laser Sharp Picture


Haven't tried the speakers yet. The picture is amazing. I haven't noticed what other reviewers are talking about with the white and black, but I don't have my old one still to compare. They are incredibly reflective, but I needed to get window...

Easy installation. Picture is amazing, vibrant, sharp. Very thin, extra thin bezel. Sturdy stand.

Exactly side by side they don't quite line up. No DVI input. That standard word that pops up in the upper left corner is annoying. REFLECTIVE!!!! Only tilt adjustment.

It's a bit too glossy. Lack of stand adjustments


If you find this on sale it's an ok deal, but I would recommend Dell's Professional (P) or Ultrasharp (U) series monitors over this one. You get a lot more for your money.

This monitor is alright. The colors are really vibrant and it's 27". The addition of speakers is nice and they sound alright, though they don't get used much due to being in a cubicle environment. Being only 1080p at 27" is nice for older employees.

No stand adjustments other than tilt. The screen is extremely glossy and reflective. The HDMI ports aren't very tight and cause the signal to cut out if the cord is bumped. Only 1080p at 27". No DVI port. Only two USB ports.

Very Upset


still working on this.... will update when I find pros.

right out of the box- upon setup I am very upset. I bought two of these monitors to use in a dual set. The 27" monitor stands are NOT height adjustable. When I place these monitors side by side they are a full half inch off in height which respect to...

Dude, I got a Dell. Again...


Dell's product line makes no sense. I own multiple Dell monitors. Six currently in use. If they are different part numbers, they might as well be from different manufacturers. I think they randomly pick I/O from out of a hat. And backlights from a bin...

It has no major flaws. Thin bezels. Really the best feature here. Looks pretty good when adjusted.

Glossy. There's no point to this. No one likes glossy, do they? Almost none of their other monitors are glossy. Luckily, I have thick curtains, and ceiling lights. No black desktop backgrounds for me. I don't need another mirror. Mediocre stand....

Was hopeful


You'll probably get a great monitor. Mine couldn't produce white.

Good color reproduction despite being dim and not being able to create white

Couldn't produce the color white; at full brightness it looked like a laptop screen when it dims into power saver mode. I typed in the service tag to ask Dell what the?? And noticed something weird about my warranty, it started 6 weeks before I bought...

Expected better


I set this up in a dual monitor configuration along side my 3 year old Samsung BX2355 23" monitor. The Samsung's display of white looks white and blacks are blacker than this Dell. I much prefer the old Samsung over this unit.

- No dead pixels. - Nice case with narrow margins.

- Whites appear yellowish, blacks are not very black. No amount of fiddling with monitor controls, Dell Display Manager or Windows 10 Color Calibration controls improved this to my satisfaction. - Glossy screen reflects things behind you. I can see a...

Pretty awesome


I bought this when it was on sale for $250, but really any price around that is a pretty fair deal. You just can't find 27 inch IPS monitors that are of this quality for that price point (at least at this exact moment). As long as you are happy with...

I'm a video editor, and spend a lot of time starring at monitors. The colors on this Dell are amazing (especially for the price). I have an Acer 27 inch along side it, and it can't really even compete with this Dell. Aside from the quality of the...

The screen is deluxe. Vivid, rich colors and crystal clear. I don't see any imperfections at all. Speakers - I have a old set of Klipsch 4.1 Promedia that still work perfectly so I have not installed any of the drivers from the supplied Dell CD to test...

Well packaged during shipping. Sturdy stand & easy to use adjustment settings. Some don't like playing with the adjustment controls, but I enjoy it. This gives me the opportunity to see what the monitor will do. Took my time and in less than 10 minutes...

The USB connections are hard to access but I knew this would be the case from the photos of it before making the purchase. The glossy screen does reflect light. If there's a window behind you the screen appears to be made of glass. Like the USB...
