Super Review On Dell UltraSharp U2720Q Well Accomplished

Posted by

Getting a 27 inches monitor to set your pulse racing, the Dell UltraSharp U2720Q may not be the best choice for you. If on the other hand, you’re looking for a practical screen that will reduce cable clutter and reproduce accurate colours, this 27 inches 4K screen fits the bill – and, unlike some of its technically superior competitors, it does so for a competitive price.

Dell also makes it easy to switch between preset colour spaces.

Subsequently the UltraSharp is shipped in Standard mode, which you can tweak as you wish, but you can choose between sRGB and DCI-P3 by heading into the OSD’s Color Space submenu. Or flick between six colour temperatures ranging from 5000K to 10,000K, or select one of its other preset modes of, say, Movie or Game.

We didn’t find it necessary to make any adjustments to cover the sRGB and DCI-P3 colour spaces. In sRGB mode, it covered 92.8% of the gamut with 94.7% volume, while slipping into DCI-P3 produced a measurement of 86.7% – not perfect, and falling behind Dell’s claims of 95%, but still one of the better returns we’ve seen.

The OSD is easy to use and responsive, relying on four small buttons mounted at the bottom of the screen.

They change function depending on context – for example, up, down, select and back if changing a value – and the sensible icons make it easy to understand what’s going on.

The only annoyance when using the OSD is that the screen wobbles on its stand when you press a button.

In return, you’re buying versatility. You can pivot the screen on the stand by 90° in either direction, it tilts backwards and forwards as much as anyone will need, and a 45° swivel either way is enough to show your neighbour what’s on your screen.

The coup de grâce is a total 130mm of height adjustment, which means it should fit neatly into most workspaces.
