Dell UP2715K overview

  • 1Description

The UP2715K 27" Monitor from Dell features an Ultra HD 5K resolution that offers seven times the resolution when compared to other 1080p monitors. To support the 5120 x 2880 resolution, this display connects to your system via two DisplayPorts. When the monitor is connected to one DisplayPort, the maximum resolution it can support is 3840 x 2160. In addition, this monitor is equipped with a mini-DisplayPort that can support up to 4K resolutions. The 5K resolution provides you sharp detail when viewing 5K media and offers extra on-screen workspace. This extra space allows you to view more cells while working in spreadsheets, viewing two web pages side-by-side, and more.

This monitor is built with an IPS panel that offers better color reproduction of the 1.074 billion colors as well as wider viewing angles when compared to TN panels. With 178° wide viewing angles that eliminate color shifts, IPS monitors allow you to see the same clear images from the far left or right, as you would see from the center. This monitor also features 8,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 8 ms response time, 218 ppi, and a 350 cd/m² brightness rating. Furthermore, this IPS monitor has been factory tuned for 99% Adobe RGB that accurately reproduces colors for reds, blues, and more.

The Dell UP2715K delivers PremierColor technologies to provide accurate colors and true-to-life picture quality when viewing photos and videos. To maintain its color accuracy, this monitor comes with a 12-bit user-accessible 3D look-up table and software for adjusting the color settings when used with an optional colorimeter. Optical bonding and an anti-reflective 3H coating has been applied to the monitor for eliminating the reflection from the LCD panel and protective glass layer that helps improve clarity, vividness, and contrast. Dell has built this monitor with an edge-to-edge glass design that has an anti-smudge coating for easily cleaning away fingerprints. To complete the visual multimedia experience, this display is equipped with two down-firing 16-watt Harman Kardon speakers for immersing you with sounds when watching movies.

The included stand allows the monitor to be raised or lowered and tilted forward or back. To help display long word documents or web pages, this monitor pivots 90° for better utilizing the on-screen workspace that allows you to view more content vertically. The stand can be removed so you can use an optional VESA 100 kit to mount the monitor on the wall, or attach it to a VESA compatible swing arm. This monitor provides five USB 3.0 ports via the built-in USB hub and a media card reader for connecting with a wide range of other devices to optimize productivity. Moreover, one of the USB 3.0 ports supplies twice the power that charges BC 1.2 compatible USB devices. Included with the monitor are a media disc, power cable, USB 3.0, mini-DisplayPort to mini-DisplayPort, two mini-DisplayPort to DisplayPort, and two DisplayPort to DisplayPort cables.

    Dell UP2715K reviews

    UP2715K 27" UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K LED Backlit IPS Monitor is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent resolution, takes some getting used to.... I purchased this monitor for purposes of photo editing, and for it's purpose, this monitor excels and does a great job. But one frustrating component, is that font sizes remain very, very small, even when they are magnified to a larger amount. This is to be expected with a monitor at this resolution, but it can be bothersome, even for someone like myself who is in his early 40's and has perfect vision. Be prepared to have a set of +2 or +3 readers near the computer at all times. But besides the small font at maximum resolution, this monitor excels. The image quality is absolutely stunning. Worth the investment, if you are willing to adjust to some of the few minor cons of 4K.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I hoped it would be Paired it with a new Mac Pro with no problems once I selected the 5k resolution on the Dell monitor menu. Gorgeous screen, no bleeding. Adjusting the screen height, angle is very smooth and easy.Side note: Ordered from BH during the Xmas season since I was confident they would adequately pack the monitor for it's bumpy ride from NY to CA. And they did. Usually order from @, but getting tired of returning too many damaged merchandise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Image and Construction! Well Worth What I Paid I have an Samsung SB970. After another Samsung was no longer available, this was the only monitor I could find that had a similar glossy full glass surface, high quality construction and image quality and resolution that I wanted. To me, The UP2715K is muchpiece of art as is the SB970 - only better. Dell should be complimented for the effort and quality of this product - and I am not even a Dell fan. It's high resolution requires some application initialization changes - but the changes are quite well documented so that icons and text are pleasing size. Again, it's quality everywhere that uniquely shines. I feel that I'm looking out my window instead of the computer screen. - Hank

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the 5K and size, but not perfect I am using this on a new Mac Pro (late 2013) and it's beautiful, except for too much blue in the bottom right corner. Also, it was blacking out intermittently for a few seconds, which really jolted me while I was color grading. Then it would happen again after about 5 minutes. I had both cables plugged into the same bus. After I read that Apple recommends using different busses for each monitor, I moved one of the cables to a different bus. I will see if that fixes the blacking out issue. I'm worried that if I exchange this monitor for another (because of the blue corner issue) that the new monitor might have a worse issue. I can sort of live with an issue in the bottom right corner. I love being able to see footage in 4K while still being able to have menus around the video.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good! I'm using two of these on Mac Pro's and they've been great so far. No issues with pixels or colors out of the box and the stand is more versatile than I thought. It easily rotates and you can raise/lower and tilt the monitor through a wide range. The only thing is that the thunderbolt connectors are a bit fiddly and if they get bumped at all, they lose connection so be sure those are always tight if you move the monitor. Also be really careful that you get the 1-1 and 2-2 ports correct (mark the connectors). If you cross the connectors, the monitor won't work. The only real negative so far is that if the monitor goes to sleep fully (power save) it is nearly impossible to wake the computer up so we had to disable that. Also the volume controls on the monitor are inside a sub-menu so you have do more tapping of the side buttons (which can become confusing and even lead to you disabling the monitor) so it would be better if there were dedicated volume controls and then menu controls.
