      Comments about Dell U2711 Ultra Sharp 27" Monitor:

      Not quite as stylish as others but looking at the screen compensates for any other faults. I think of this as a working persons monitor where functionality is a necessary requirement. Are there better monitors, sure but not for the price. I looked at a refined list of comparable choices including Apple and and very happy I decided upon this monitor.

        Comments about Dell U2711 Ultra Sharp 27" Monitor:

        You really have to see this thing in action. The resolution is amazing and the colors are incredibly vibrant. I use this to edit movies and photos and design websites. Because of the resolution text can be kind of small but there are ways around that. I also do some gaming on it which is mind blowing. There is a tiny bit of ghosting but it's barely noticeable. Make sure you have a really good video card if you plan to play games at its highest resolution. This thing is also pretty heavy but that makes it one of the sturdiest monitors I've owned. A lot of people complain about the anti glare coating dell puts on it but I don't see much of a problem there. Either they remedied the issue or the lighting in my room doesn't really affect it. All in all I'm very happy with this purchase and if you live in the tri-state area getting it from b&h is a must. They had the best price and I got it one day after it shipped!

          I have been using this monitor for approximately a month, and so far it has been outstanding. I am generally not a fan of Dell products, but based my purchase on both consumer and professional reviews.

          The quality, color and menu functions are great...overall a good solution for the price.

          • Photo Editing

          Comments about Dell U2711 Ultra Sharp 27" Monitor:

          I bought this monitor mainly for photo editing and watching blue-ray movies.

          - After calibration with Spyder 4 Pro, it gives 99-100% accurate for Adobe RGB (1.07 billion colors). It produces superior color for photo and video. Watching action movies are excellent and no ghosting at all.

          - Monitor allowed you to have completely different settings in Graphics mode and movie mode so that you can switch between the two.

          - It comes with lots of interfaces, Display port, HDMI, DVI, VGA, you named it. That means you can connect to different devices.

          - Comes with useful 4 USB ports and SD card reader.

          Now comes to the down side.

          - If using Display port, the monitor is unable to wake up after sleep mode. Have to unplug and plug the power cable to wake it up. So it's best to connect the monitor a power bar with on/off switch so that you do't always unplug and plug the power cable.

          - Anti-glare coating is quite strong and can be annoying when you are reading a lot of text. The coating made text uneven and more difficult to read sometimes.

          - It is a tradition LCD, not LED, so it's thinker and also generate a lot of heat.

          If you like this monitor color performance and the high end image quality, you have to live with its problems.

            I use this for developing software and editing photos. The included Displayport cable is a throw-away. It works great using a mini-Displayport to DisplayPort cable. Mine is a Startech, about $9.99 which worked out of the bag with No problems. I don't have an issue with the non-glare coating.

              Comments about Dell U2711 Ultra Sharp 27" Monitor:

              I purchased this monitor as a replacement for a consumer grade 22" Viewsonic monitor. Right out of the box with the factory calibration this thing rocks! The colors are incredibly brilliant and vibrant. I'm very happy with this monitor and am going to thoroughly enjoy it for a long time.

              I mostly use it for photo editing in Lightroom and PS as well as gaming. I have no complaints about the monitor at all. Playing games I've played many times before is like a new experience. The colors are saturated and vibrant and the screen is crisp.

              What I am most impressed with so far is the vibrancy and saturation of colors. It's very impressive but not so much that the images look oversaturated. Whites in wedding dresses are clean and brilliant and colors are just absolutely fabulous. This was my first leap into high-end monitors and I expected a great improvement over my old monitor but this unit exceeded my expectations.
