Engadget Summary

Dell's U2713HM is a more full-featured monitor than its younger counterpart, the S2740L, coming in at almost $300 more. But for that price hike you get an array of ports including HDMI, DisplayPort and DVI-D, as well as an integrated USB 3.0 hub -- not to mention a bumped up resolution, to 2560x1440. AnandTech finds its design to be "clean and well done," and goes on to say that the U2713HM "is very good, with the performance out of the box being extraordinary." TFTCentral agrees, stating "the screen offered excellent all round performance from its IPS panel." When it came to text and video IT Pro Portal found that "text appeared crisp and well defined, and fast motion video and gaming was clean and smooth." And while Macworld wasn't too impressed with the cheaper S2740L, they said the U2713HM was capable of "displaying accurate colors, smooth gradients, and excellent viewing angles."
