I've been buying Dell Ultrasharp's since 2007 and they have always been very high quality monitors. Was in the market for a 27inch QHD display so Dell was my 1st option. Did some research before hand but not a lot out for this newer display. I did read some concerns re IPS Glow and backlight bleed issues but decided to buy them anyway due to Dell's reputation for high quality monitors, this was a mistake. The first thing I did when I set them up was run the back light bleed test. This was the worst backlight bleed I have seen on any monitor, ever. I bought cheap viewsonic LED monitors for work last year and they dont even have this level of bleed and they cost a 3rd of the price. The second issue is an insane amount of IPS glow on the top right and top left corners of the monitor. This is instantly visible while watching movies with the black bars at the top and bottom as well as dark scenes in games. These issues are visible on both monitors as I bought an identical set for a dual screen setup. The only reason I gave this 2 stars instead of one is decent build quality and very small bezel size. I'm surprised that for a premium line of monitors in the Ultrasharp range Dell have really dropped the quality control standards over the years. Returned these and bought HP's 27 QHD Z series monitors. They are very high quality IPS panels that can run at 1440P 75Hz instead of 60Hz and most importantly do not have the same issues with IPS Glow or backlight bleeding.
I already own a 22" Dell UltraSharp monitor which I've used for photo editing for 5 years now, but I wanted a larger screen. The reviews on this were mixed, but I sent for it anyway as I've always been really happy with my existing Dell screen.
I'm also more than happy with this one. Great size and weight and super thin. Tilts easily. I was happy there are actual buttons for the settings on this screen, unlike the touch options on my older model which aren't the best to use. Nice matt screen which is needed for photography editing.
I plugged it into my laptop and compared the colours with my sRGB printed pictures. They were almost spot on, with just a touch of tweaking to brightness and contrast needed for exact replication. A photographer's dream!
It's not a wide gamut monitor, but I don't know why such a fuss is made of this anyway. All computer browsers use sRGB and most commercial printers request sRGB images for printing. Although I work in the Adobe RGB colour space within Photoshop I then convert to sRGB for most uses anyway.
The reason for me knocking off 1 star is that the monitor did not come with an HDMI cable. It has a DP cable, but my laptop doesn't have a DP port! This isn't a cheap monitor and I was disappointed an HDMI cable wasn't included and I had to purchase one separately. Other than that I'm very happy with my purchase.
The picture quality is pretty nice overall, it's great for gaming and has low input latency and ghosting. I'd definitely play games on this thing.
However, the brightness uniformity on my model was poor around the left and right edges. I don't have any photos but I'd say the display started getting dim about an inch or two towards the bezel on either side. The Asus PA27AC I tried did the exact same thing. It doesn't really make sense paying £350 - £650 for an IPS monitor that does this when all the cheaper IPS monitors I own don't do it. I'm sure each model varies but I've seen two of these do it.
Also, do not use the "standard" colour mode on this model because it completely wipes out the contrast and colour saturation (primary red and primary blue etc actually look washed out), use the "color temp" mode set at 6500K. This mode is really close to the correct colour saturation, although the gamma sits around the 2.4 range.
I tried the Lagom tests with these settings: Brightness 80 - 100 Contrast 75 "Color temp" - 6500K
The monitor passes all of the tests pretty well apart from gamma. Gamma values sit at 2.4 on grayscale and RGB and there isn't much you can do in-monitor to fix it without completely destroying the contrast and saturation. Contrast checkers all show, even the lowest values. Grayscale gradient has no banding. Colour viewing angles are good. Brightness uniformity like I said is poor close to the left and right edges on my model. Surface matte texture is pretty mild and looks nice to me on the whites. There is quite a lot of backlight glow and the contrast isn't so great. The glow isn't blue IPS glow, but it's gold and grey glow. The black luminance is poor so the entire screen has a sort of "mistiness" to it because of the bad blacks. Poor contrast ratio.
If you do illustration or photography, just keep the gamma in mind. The colour temperature and saturation looks pretty good and accurate enough but the 2.4 gamma does take everything down a tad too much for sRGB. I returned mine because I couldn't get a good 2.2 sRGB calibration without introducing banding.
I purchased this monitor from Amazon and the invoice showed that it was a third party seller who provided the monitor. Warranty I discovered was registered to the third party seller at the time they purchased the monitor consequently I have lost almost a month of warranty. I am in the process of trying to change this with Dell but be warned about purchasing electrical goods via third party sellers on Amazon.
I am an amateur photographer and I am quite particular about what I want from viewing and editing pictures, however, I cannot afford a high end calibrated monitor so I look for a good 'budget' option. Key to getting this Dell U2719D was that it is a so called '2K' monitor (2560x1440) and there are surprisingly few about, which I find odd. A large HD 1920 monitor has the pixels spread too thinly, for want of a better term, and so quality and resolution is not great. A relatively small 4K monitor is ok, but you have a condensed pixel pitch that can be impractical and if you want one that isn't for gaming then I found the quality for photo editing a bit lacking. i.e I think if you get a decent 4K monitor you need at least 32 inches and double the cost of this Dell, which is why I didn't do that. This is a nice monitor that I found to be in a sweet spot for practicality, it can be calibrated, but I found reducing brightness and shifting contrast to be adequate to represent the dynamic range and tones that I am satisfied with. It is stable, easy to angle and I like the thin black bezel edge.
Ich habe mich für diesen Dell-Monitor entschieden, weil ich einen 27 Zoll großen Monitor suchte, der gut aussieht und eine gute Bildqualität liefert. Auf 4K habe ich bewußt verzichtet, weil bei 27 Zoll 4K mehr Probleme macht, als das es nutzt. Der Dell bietet 2K. Mehr macht bei 27 Zoll auch keinen Sinn.
Man kann ihn mit 100 % Skalierung benutzen, so dass man keine Probleme mit Anwendungen hat.
Der Kontrast ist mit 1000:1 in Ordnung, aber nicht herausragend. An den Rändern erkennt man bei schrägem Blickwinkel leichte Abdunkelungen, was aber noch im Rahmen ist.
Ich bin mit dem Monitor bisher zufrieden. Allerdings ist das mitgelieferte Stromkabel mit 1,5 Metern zu kurz. Ich musste mir bei Amazon ein längeres Kabel (AmazonBasics - Netzkabel - 3 m , Schwarz Kaltgerätestecker) bestellen.
I read a number of reviews on a number of different monitors but in the end settled for this one. I wanted a larger screen than my current 19" monitors (I have 3), but also to have a better resolution knowing that the PPI would make a difference on a 27" screen. Very impressed with the build quality of the monitor and the screen itself. I am no expert and do not know how to run all the tests I have read about, but being very particular with things, I wanted to share that this does indeed tick all the boxes for using for work related activities, general PC use. As its only 60hz I do not believe this would be any good for games, but works fine for Word, Excel, Youtube etc. I will be looking to buy a second one now to replace the remaining 2 19" monitors I have in use (I held back initially just incase, but overall very happy with my purchase).
Was using a 8 year old TN monitor and after much consideration I decided to go for a ips 60hz monitor. I choose the u2719d mainly because of DElls 3y warranty that covers single pixel defect( no other company does this), and if you have done some research you will know that IPS monitors are plagued with quality control issues. Besides the warranty, the monitor has a excellent out of the box calibration and I was lucky enough to receive one with almost no black light glow so even in dark screens you dont notice it is an IPS monitor. There are other cheaper monitors with similar specs but I am more then happy to pay extra for quality and the excellent warranty. In terms of picture quality its more clear and a bit stronger colors than my old TN monitor but isnt that of a big jump in image quality as I wrongly believed after reading multiple statements online that IPS is much much better then TN.
I find this monitor absolutely brilliant. First of all, assembly was extremely easy, no tools required, very ingenious. It pivots and tilts very smoothly. And the image quality is stunning. I had a decent monitor with eyecare, but the sharpness was not good enough. This monitor is really very sharp and everything - text, pictures, gaming - is clearer, brighter and neater. What a difference! It is quite long and not too high, which I love (the ratio can vary in 27 inch monitors) and I can easily see two applications side by side which is great. I no longer have to have two monitors, I'm not moving my head so much, it's much better. Happy bunny.
This is my first Dell monitor. The picture is stunning and I am more than happy with it. One thing to note if you plan to wall mount. There is a 100mm x 100mm VESA attachment on the monitor but is recessed into where the stand bracket fixes. Because the 4 screws are recessed you cannot just take mounting bars of the back of your existing monitor and screw them straight to the back of this one. I now have to spend time and expense to find another bracket which will fit. All the other monitors I have owned have had flush fittings.
