Engadget Summary

This 27-inch monitor is definitely among the best around with great color accuracy, deep blacks, very wide viewing angles, and a capacious 2560 x 1440 resolution. Inputs include HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort, Component, Composite, and VGA, so you can hook it up to just about any computer, Blu-ray player, or even your old VHS deck. If you can afford it — and have room on your desk — it's worth its $800 price tag. Otherwise, our top-recommended display, the $300, 24-inch U2412M, is a great choice.

Bottom line is that if you're looking for a large LCD with lots of features, a high resolution, great colors, and what we feel is the best current LCD panel technology, the Dell U2711 should be at the top of your list.

The only things that really pulls U2711 down is the somehow too premium price and heavy power consumption. A LED backlight would have helped, but besides that U2711 is an amazing and very versatile PC monitor that I really enjoyed testing.

Many of you asked for a round-up of 27" IPS-based displays, and here it is. Although these screens feature similar specifications, you might be surprised at how much they differ, both in performance and price. Which of the three is right for you?

A beautiful monitor that offers a sensational 2560 x 1440 resolution. It's going to cost you, but it's worth the money if you can afford it.

Can PC monitors be too big? Speak to owners of uber 30-inch displays and you might be surprised by the answer. That's where the Dell Ultrasharp U2711 steps in.

Wow. If any of the monitors in this group test deserve to come out ahead of Apple’s then the Dell U2711 is it. True, it’s the most expensive here by a wide margin but, boy, you can see what the money’s been spent on.

The Dell UltraSharp U2711 lives up to its name and displays an excellent array of colors. While it may have some trouble with the dark grays this monitor makes up for that in its numerous features and keeping a good track record, as far as Dell's go.
