Dell UltraSharp U2711

Monitors
>> Hi everyone this is Eric Franklin with cnet.com and today we're taking a First Look at the Dell UltraSharp U2711. The U2711 looks like a larger version of the Dell U2410 released a few weeks back. Too much misplaced drama. The screen height is adjustable by about 4 inches; the panel swivels about 70 degrees left and right until it's back about 25 degrees. The panel can be unscrewed from the stand and mounted Visa style on the wall. Unfortunately, there's no portrait mode like the U2410 enjoy. The video connection options are located on the back and they include VGA, two DVI ports, HDMI display port, component and a composite. Also included are two downstream USB ports and one upstream port. On the left side of the panel are two additional USB downstream ports and one card reader port. Movies on the Dell look great thanks to the display's deep blacks, and colors that full and natural in the movie preset. Games also look great running at 2560 by 1440 and showed no signs of ghosting or input lag. Its color saturation is among the best we've seen; easily as good as the HP LP's 3065's full and deep colors. On the Dell U2410 when viewing dark gray and the SRGB and Adobe RGB presets, we notice apparent static dithering. This should come as a relief to consumers that reviewed this flaw as a major sticking point on the U2410. In power consumption the Dell U2711 will cost you about $30 per year to run compare it with the HP's about $41 per year. The Dell UltraSharp U2711 is one of the best performing monitors we've yet seen. And at a price of $1,050 bucks its price will be prohibitive to some. The U2711 earns its high price however with incredible performance, a plethora of connection options and the monitor's piece to resistance it's 2560 by 1440 resolution. This is the monitor to buy if you have the budget. Honestly if you don't have the budget you should probably start pinching pennies because yes it really is that good. Once again this is Eric Franklin and this has been the First Look at the Dell UltraSharp U2711.
