  • The Dell UltraSharp U2713HM is an excellent monitor that will satisfy both the performance snob and the features diva alike.


  • The Dell UltraSharp U2713HM is a 27-inch IPS monitor that's packed with features.


  • If you're looking for a reasonably priced, high-resolution 27-inch display, and if you prefer antiglare screens, the Dell U2713HM is a great choice. It excelled in our on-screen performance tests, and it offers a wide variety of connection options and a flexible design.


  • The Dell UltraSharp U2913WM is s unique 29-inch ultra-widescreen monitor offering a 21:9 aspect ratio and solid IPS color and grayscale quality but it may not be the best choice for gamers.


  • We really like the U2913WM, and we wish that the U2713HM had followed the same design. Sadly, it looks like the upcoming U2413 and U2713H are following with the old look.

    What's rather spectacular about the U2913WM, though, is the price รข?? at AU$599, it's enough that people will be asking if they want a 27-inch with the extra 360 vertical pixels, or if 21:9 is in their future.


  • Dell goes ultra-wide with its UltraSharp U2913WM monitor, which combines sterling image quality with a novel 21:9 aspect ratio.


  • 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.


  • 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 desirable for some people, but it makes screen elements too large for me to want to use the S2740L as a desktop-computing screen.

    - Movies on the Dell looked great thanks to the display's deep blacks and colors that look full and natural in the Movie preset.


  • The Dell UltraSharp U2711 display is a high end LCD monitor designed specifically for consumers interested in professional quality output. The UltraSharp U2711 unit is a 27" screen with a 2560 X 1440 resolution and a 1.75 inch deep IPS panel.


  • 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.

    - A high-bit monitor can choose from a palette of billions of colors, helpful for professional video and graphic environments where accurate color is key.
