Dell Unveils U2717D UltraSharp InfinityEdge Monitor With Exceptionally Slender Bezels
Dell has introduced a new “InfinityEdge” model to its UltraSharp monitor lineup. The Dell U2717D features 27” IPS panel (possibly LG AH-IPS) with 2560 x 1440 (WQHD) resolution and 60Hz refresh rate.
The panel is characterized by 1000:1 static contrast ratio, 350 cd/m² of maximum luminance, and 178°/178° horizontal/vertical viewing angles with color consistency being one of its key strengths. It supports true 8-bit colour (16.7 million colours), coupled with an enhanced phosphor WLED backlight which offers 99% sRGB gamut coverage. An 8ms grey to grey response time (6ms in ‘Fast’ mode) is also specified.
Featuring a matte-antiglare, smooth screen surface, the U2717D InfinityEdge model boasts exceptionally slender bezels with total bezel thickness is 7.3mm (~0.28 inches) at the top and sides and 8.4mm (~0.33 inches) at the bottom. Further, the monitor comes factory calibrated with an average DeltaE of less than 2 for colour accuracy.
The connectivity ports include 2 HDMI 1.4 ports (with MHL 2.0), MiniDP 1.2, DP 1.2, DP out (for MST daisy-chaining), 4 USB 3.0 ports and a 3.5mm audio output. The integrated stand offers multiple adjustment options (tilt, swivel, height, and pivot), along with a quick-release button to remove the stand altogether.
