It's good. Really good! Josh P. Miller

LAS VEGAS--A few weeks ago we reviewed the Dell UltraSharp U2410, and while its performance was great, there were a couple of issues that kept it from setting the world afire.

On Thursday at CES, Dell unveiled its new 27-inch UltraSharp U2711. While its design is heavily based on the U2410, there are a few key changes that elevate the U2711 above Dell's previous great, but flawed, offering.

First up is the U2711's superhigh 2,560x1,440-pixel resolution. It's the first monitor we've reviewed with a sub-30-inch screen with a resolution that high. Most 27-inchers we've reviewed top out at 1,920x1,200 pixels.

Secondly, the U2410 suffered from static dithering on its two RGB presets. This imperfection, thankfully, was not duplicated on the U2711.

Check out the full review to see just how close to perfection the U2711 comes.
