Dell U2720Q Overview

By B&H Photo's

Experience true color reproduction and wide color gamut coverage with the U2720Q UltraSharp 27" 16:9 HDR 4K IPS Monitor from Dell, which features a native resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a 60 Hz refresh rate, as well as coverage for 99% of the sRGB and Rec. 709 color gamuts and 95% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. It also features In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, support for 1.07 billion colors, VESA DisplayHDR 400 for HDR support, a 16:9 aspect ratio, an anti-glare coating with a 3H hardness rating, a static contrast ratio of 1300:1, a typical brightness level of 350 cd/m2, an 8 ms response time in normal mode, and a 5 ms response time in fast mode. Using the 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, it is possible to watch content from virtually any position.

Dell's U2720Q has one USB Type-C input/output which supports DisplayPort 1.4 video, 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 data transfers, and delivers up to 90W of power to compatible devices. It also has DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 inputs, a USB 3.0 Type-C output that supports device charging up to 3A, and three USB 3.0 Type-A outputs, two of which support battery charging via the BC 1.2 spec up to 2A. If you'd like to output audio, there is a 3.5mm line out jack. To further help improve viewing and accessibility, this display features a tilt of -5 to 21°, a swivel of -45 to 45°, a pivot of -90 to 90°, a height adjustment of 5.12", and a 100 x 100mm VESA mount.

Please note that when you select DCI-P3 as the color space, the luminance of the backlight defaults to 48 cd/m2. This can be manually adjusted by using the Brightness function under Brightness/Contrast in the OSD menu. Also, USB Type-C is not supported on Windows versions prior to Windows 10 and the audio line-out port does not support headphones. Lastly, in order to use the USB Type-A ports on the rear of the display, the U2720Q must be connected to your system via USB Type-C.

Dell U2720Q Reviews

Pretty good

By Daniel
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-27

Great image quality and good form factor. I like how thin the bezels are. It looks very professional. The only thing I don't like is that when the monitor goes to sleep or awakens from sleep, a little menu stays on the screen for a few seconds before disappearing. Not a dealbreaker, but it is kind of annoying.

Nice size

I like the size of the screen and the picture is great. I keep getting an odd glare from the mat coated screen. I was using a Mac monitor before so it might just be an adjustment to something new? Time will tell. Overall happy.

Very Impressed

I have only had this monitor for a couple weeks and I am blown away by the image quality. I am a photographer and I knew I needed to invest in something nicer, but didn't want to spend thousands of dollars. This monitor is crisp, beautiful color reproduction, and is very responsive. For the price, I am honestly considering purchasing a second one to replace my secondary monitor too. Also, set-up was super easy and fast.

Great graphic design monitor!

Great Monitor for Mac Users

I have a 2020 M1 Mac. Works great as a plug and play monitor and gives you a few extra USB A ports and plenty of power. Looking to combine with a thunderbolt dock to do multiple displays later. Resolution is great and handles bright rooms/direct light just fine.

Totally Satisficed

When I read the other reviews on this monitor I expected to have the same small issues. To my surprise I had no surprises. 1. The monitor came with HDMI, Thunderbolt, and USB cables in the box nothing missing. 2. I hooked up my MacBook and it immediately saw the monitor and asked if I wanted to charge my laptop all the time or not. 3. There were no issues at all with the monitor, the buttons under the right edge were not recessed on my unit I could easily push them. Was very happy with the monitor right from the box. The only small laughable issue was how to adjust the monitor height which is not discussed in any of the instructions, thankfully someone posted the answer to the simple puzzle. Just push it down and pull it up no release buttons or latches just simple easy pushing and pulling. Got a nice laugh out of it. (keep it simple stupid) Super happy all is as I hoped it to be.

Excellent monitor!

I am really impressed by the clarity, brilliance of the colour quality and accuracy of this monitor. Not to mention, it charges my MacBook Pro directly and via a single connection by USB-C.

No complaints

Monitor is beautiful, works well with my Macs as a docking station. It shakes a bit when I type, but I think a my desk is contributing to that problem. It doesn't have speakers, but it does have an audio out jack. The Mac doesn't support volume controls on the audio out, so I have to use the knobs on my external speakers - no big deal. This is actually my second one which I bought for my wife's computer after liking my first one on my computer.

The significant difference would be other than screen size is the color gamut. The Dell has 99% of sRGB and the LG has 95% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. The LG in this case has a bigger color gamut,
