Dell U2715H: 27-Inch Monitor with High Brightness and Superior Color Transmission

The Dell U2715H has one of the best price-to-quality ratios among the 4K monitors that I have tested. It has lots of features that make it suitable for professional use, but it's still affordable. This model belongs to the Dell's series of UltraSharp monitors. This series also includes the U2711 model that is very similar to the U2715H but has slightly better panel bih depth.

Dimensions

The monitor has 27 inches in diagonal and measures 24.1 x 8.1 x 21.6 inches, so it provides enough space for convenient work. The panel is just 5.7 inches thick. The weight makes 10.6 pounds without a stand and 15 pounds with a stand.

Features

The Dell U2715H specs allow you to easily understand that this monitor will do a great job for media creators. First of all, since it's an IPS model, it can provide a high level of color accuracy (the monitor covers 99% of the sRGB color gamut). Besides, it also features a QHD resolution that provides a noticeably sharper picture than Full HD resolution is able to deliver. Plus, having 350 cd/m2 of top brightness level, it can get really, really bright.

It's not the best option for those searching for a monitor predominately for gaming. Despite providing a vivid, blur-free picture, the monitor isn't supplemented with any specific gaming features. It doesn't support FreeSync or G-Sync, has a basic refresh rate (60Hz) and response time (6ms).

As I connected the monitor to my PC, I immediately noticed that the image is rich and stable. Thanks to the thin bezels, it also looks immersive. The picture also doesn't lose its stability and uniformness across a wide viewing angle. Plus, the image isn't recessed into the monitor and doesn't look flat. On the contrary, it seems to be very volumetric out of the box.

In terms of downsides, I can mark the lack of intensity in dark colors. Even after reading the Dell U2715H manual, I still wasn't able to solve this problem using picture settings in the OSD menu.

What's about eco features? The panel is free from arsenic and mercury; it also has an Eco mode.

On the whole, I'm satisfied with the monitor's picture and features, but since dark colors aren't intensive enough, I give it 7/10.

Design

In general, the Dell UltraSharp U2715H 27-inch screen LED-lit monitor looks neat and simple. The screen has a sleek, matte surface and features an anti-glare coating.

Despite having a small footprint (9.6 inches in width and 8.1 inches in depth), the square-shaped stand is stable, so the monitor doesn't wobble. The stand is fully adjustable, allowing you to very height (up to 100mm), swivel (–45°/+45°), and angle (–5°/+21°), and pivot (90°) the monitor.

The bezels are only about 0.3-inch thick, making this model suitable for a multi-monitor setup. The row of 5 control buttons is located on the right side of the bottom bezel.

All the ports are on the back of the monitor:

  • DisplayPort
  • Mini DisplayPort
  • DisplayPort out
  • 2 HDMIs (1.4)
  • 4 USB ports (3.0)
  • 3.5mm audio out

I like the stand's ergonomics and how the monitor looks in general, so I give it 10/10 for the design.

Conclusion

Those people who work with media content will probably be satisfied by the features, described in this U2715H review. The monitor offers much more than an average user needs. It delivers a natural, bright picture, provides lots of connectivity options, and fits well for multi-monitor setup.
