Rotation

Like the other UltraSharp 27 models, you can rotate it to either work vertically or to put them side by side for a megadisplay.

Connectors

It has the same design and connector configuration as the 2017 models.

Viewing angle

I didn't see any color shifts in off-angle viewing, a feature of IPS panels.
