The performance of the monitor was tested on a number of factors, such as video quality, colour reproduction and image quality. To start off with the performance of the monitor, we calibrated it using the Spyder3 Elite Colorimeter. From this, we found out that the contrast ratio is 527:1 and the deviation from the brightest point was at the top left corner at 11.8 percent at 100 percent brightness.
Sturdy stand and base
It can be said that full HD video playback of this monitor is probably the best there is in its price range and lower. The colours appeared accurate, but tones of red, such as pink and orange appeared vibrant. Skin tones rendered well and the detail in dark scenes looked really good. We have not seen any monitor in the recent past that offer as good performance as this model, especially when it comes to video playback.
Still Image Quality
While reviewing our high quality sample image, we observed that there was a lot of detail and colours appeared accurate. Skin tones rendered flawlessly and overall this monitor did really well.
The large WQHD monitor from Dell
The Dell UltraSharp U2711 is available in India at a price of Rs. 44,000. The monitor does exceedingly well in terms of design, features and performance and it does not have any real cons going for it. The only real issue we have is with its price, for it is rather steep. There are a range of 27-inch monitors available in the market and they cost half of what the U2711 does, but they fall short in terms of performance. With this monitor, Dell is offering a premium product at a premium price.
This monitor is ideal for those who are into graphic designing, photography or those who make games and need all images in the best quality possible. This is not an average run of the mill monitor and its price suggests the same. Alternatively, if one is in the market looking out for a really expensive monitor and has almost half a lakh to spend, then this will be a monitor that they definitely won’t be disappointed with.
