FYI for those who are wondering, this is the U2711 (Dell has two other 27" UltraSharp monitors, the U2713H and U2713HM).

Great deal for those who needs this 27 IPS monitor. I have one and paid 650 last December.

Any ideas on how this compares to the Monoprice version? Same glass, right? Better stand? More bells and whistles, with the USB ports and card reader. Anything else to justify another 100$?

Between this and U2713H, which one is better?

I'd have loved this deal back when I blew my 'stupid tech thingamajigs I do not need' budget on 2 24" monitors (1920x1080). That 2560x1440 is tempting as hell though. You'll almost definitely still see individual pixels, but the pixellation (sp?) on a 1920x1080 monitor is worse.

BTW: from this months popular photography: the new Monoprice 27" IPS is as good and at 2/3 the price ......

wow, i think mine is a 2709 and i paid 1k for it and love it

2711 is a better one.

Some discussions about the differences here

I just picked up a U2713HM on Amazon a few weeks ago for like $540. I like this model because it is PWM free and therefore reduces eye strain, if you have any issues with eye strain. The resolution is great. These Dell IPS monitors do have some back-light bleeding. I read the reviews and unfortunately get one with the bleeding, Dell sent me a replacement, but that one also has the backlight bleeding problem. Still a great monitor overall!

I disagree. The 2711 (and U2713HM) is less expensive than U2713H, but not better quality. One simple example is that the U2713H and HM versions has less aggressive anti-glare which many photographers complained about because the whites looked gray.

If you're comparing the 2711 to U2713HM, the U2711 is older CFL backlight model and U2713HM is newer LED backlight model. The LED creates much less heat and uses less power.

It's all about what your needs are and what you're willing to settle for. I just purchased the U2713H which supports both sRGB and AdobeRGB mode last week to process images in Photoshop and paid $765 (not including FW CB).

I switched to a 27" monitor but got back to the old 20" one. 27" was surprisingly bigger than my liking!

Curious to ask, how did you identify the bleeding issue?

Thanks!

Two ways - The easy way is just to run a completely black screen saver and see all the white light so its not completely black all over. On my screen it was in the lower left hand corner. Also, if you hold the top and bottom buttons, you can make the screen show you each color (black, blue, green, red, gray) and when the black screen came on, you can see the bleeding in the corners. While I mainly play games (dota2) so it has not been an issue, these monitors are still expensive and I would expect them to be working correctly. From what I read online about the HM model, any of them built in May 2013 will have the issue fixed. The original one and replacement one both had April build dates. Hope that helps!

Thanks!

isn't it more like 4/5 of the price? The one with DP at Monoprice is $450.46. Did you compare with the one @$386, which lacks DP?

Still a $100 diff.

Yep - I guess the one i looked at was one without DP (isnt that for Macs? ....I use PC for my photo processing anyway - unless there is another difference)

what i looked at was: 27" IPS-ZERO-G Slim Monitor WQHD 2560x1440 - Dual Link DVI, VGA

IMO, a Korean monitor from eBay for approximately $280, will be same as this.

Then you obviously have never used either. Comparing the build and picture quality of a true Dell IPS UltraSharp to those sub $300 Korean eIPS POS LEDS is simply amusing.

can you explain the difference for us? I'm considering both. Thanks.

Yep, haven't used this Dell, but I have a 30" Dell monitor at work (a slightly higher resolution than this) and a 27" Korean from eBay at home. They feel the same to me, but, I am not a super discerning user -- just a programmer, not designer.

the monitor from eBay is cheaper than this price, why?
