Dell P2715Q: 27-Inch Monitor with Stunning 4K Picture and Decent Brightness

Dell was one of the first brands to introduce 4K monitors to the market and had ample time to develop a wide range of high-quality 4K monitors for various budgets. The Dell P2715Q is among the most affordable models with 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution that has an IPS panel and offers an impressively wide color gamut that covers 99% of sRGB.

Dimensions

The monitor's diagonal of 27 inches and the active display area of 23.49 x 13.21 inches (horizontal/vertical) has plenty of viewing space. The aspect ratio is standard widescreen (16:9). The exact dimensions are 25.2 x 21.2 x 8 inches. The weight makes 16.7 pounds.

Features

The Dell P2715Q specs don't stand out, but if you're upgrading from an HD/FHD display, you'll be blown away by the color transmission and picture clarity this monitor offers. The IPS panel works well in reproducing both bright and dark colors, so vivid scenes on the black background look just stunning.

The picture on the projector is smoother on the eyes thanks to the anti-glare matte coating. At 350 nits, the screen is also bright enough. In addition to that, it's capable of reproducing up to 1.07 billion colors and supports 10-bit color depth which makes it a good option for color-critical work. Thanks to the high pixel-per-inch ratio (163 PPI), you also get a very detailed picture. This particular model doesn't support HDR, but the U2718Q (its newer and more expensive version) does if the HDR is crucial for you.

The refresh rate is 60Hz and the response time is 9ms. So, if you are a gamer, you would definitely like to get more. However, just like most monitors from Dell, it does have a Game mode.

The text looks especially crisp thanks to the monitor's excellent resolution. There is also a Paper mode that turns the monitor into a kind of an eBook screen. To be more precise, it makes the image softer and significantly decreases the brightness. Therefore, reading becomes more convenient and your eyes get tired less.

After installing the Dell P2715Q driver, I performed some minor picture calibration. Unfortunately, the OSD menu allows changing only three values: brightness, contrast, and RGB.

This monitor's eco-friendly architecture satisfies the ENERGY STAR and TCO requirements. In fact, this means that this model meets strict energy efficiency criteria and consumes less energy than standard monitors.

The P2715Q does lack some advanced features and versatility, but, in general, the features are satisfying for the price and get 8/10.

Design

The design is typical for Dell monitors—a matte black panel and 5 physical control buttons on the right bezel.

The stand is just a flat square plate attached to the stand that has a hole for cable management. It has silver trim (except for its bottom part that is black). The base is stable—I didn't notice any wobbles. There are also four tiny stands on the bottom that make it hard to shift the monitor from its place even when you put an effort.

The stand can be adjusted in a variety of ways:

  • tilt (–5°/+21°)
  • pivot (90°)
  • swivel (–45°/+45°)
  • height (115 mm max)

The Dell 27 Ultra HD 4K monitor — P2715Q offers plenty of connectivity options:

  • HDMI (MHL) port;
  • DP input;
  • mini-DP input;
  • DP output;
  • audio line-out;
  • USB upstream;
  • 4 downstream USB ports.

Many consumers would be satisfied by the traditional architecture and abundance of ports. I give the design a 9 out of 10.

Conclusion

So, our Dell Ultra HD 4K monitor P2715Q review disclosed all information about a model that provides superior image quality as well as text content that looks fantastic. It lacks features for gamers and does not offer a wide range of picture correction options, but its image reproduction is its strongest suit. Hence, if color and image crispness are your top priorities, the P2715Q is a decent option.
