Dell UltraSharp U2711

Direct2Dell, Dell Store: Dell’s U2711 is a 27-inch monitor sporting an IPS TFT LCD panel with a 2560×1440 pixel format giving you a 16:9 aspect ratio. I think this very LCD panel, most likely manufactured by LG Display, also goes in the 27-inch iMac.

Other specs include: 6ms GTG response time, 60Hz, 1000:1 contrast ratio, a brightness of 350 cd/m2, 178/178 viewing angles, 1.07 billion colors, 100% sRGB and 96% AdobeRGB color gamuts.

There are a lot of connectivity options: DVI-D (2), DisplayPort, VGA, composite, component, HDMI 1.3, USB (4). There is also a 8-in-1 card reader. The price? US$1099. The U2711 has been added to the IPS LCD Monitors list. (Note: The IPS LCD Monitors list will no longer be updated.)
