9 Reasons For
DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Flatpanel Monitors
On average DELL medium monitors have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all PC displays produced by DELL.
LED Display Type
This PC display has an LED display type, which is typical of many medium monitors that came out in the last 12 months.
We compared all the other PC screens that have an LED Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think the LG 27UD58[plb_3761590_price], and the Benq GL2706PQ[plb_3720986_price] which is cheaper; or the Acer XG270HU[plb_2846714_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
The DELL U2717D is a two DisplayPort PC monitor.
Quite Bright Display Brightness
The dimmest display brightness of medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the U2717D is 200 cd/m² and the brightest is 800 cd/m². With a display brightness of 350 candellas per square meter, the DELL U2717D has one of the brighter display brightness amongst medium monitors of this age.
Quite Large Color Gamut
With a color gamut of 99 percent, the DELL U2717D has a fairly large color gamut compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the U2717D. The smallest color gamut of newly released flatpanel monitors is 68% and the largest is 110%.
1440p Video Mode
The DELL U2717D has a maximum resolution of 1440p. That's over two times the resolution of a 720p PC monitor, which is the most frequently found resolution. 720p is also found on this PC monitor. In addition, this LCD screen have 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p and 1080i and 1080p video modes.
A 1440p video mode is actually the best resolution amongst all PC screens that have been around for around the same time as the U2717D.

Has Three Cables Included
The DELL U2717D has a greater number of cables included than most PC screens that are a comparable age to it.

The cables included "DisplayPort" and "USB" are also found on this PC display.

7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most of the other medium monitors that came out in the last 12 months have a built-in speaker, however the DELL U2717D does not have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the Acer CB281HK[plb_3229284_price], or the LG 34UM68-P[plb_3285146_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for the last year, the DELL U2717D is not 3D compatible.
The DELL U2717D does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the U2717D also do not have a built-in camera.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The DELL U2717D does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other new similar spec PC screens also do not have an integrated card reader.
+4 More reasons against
Fairly High Maximum Power Consumption
The lowest maximum power consumption of medium monitors that have been available for the last year is 17W, the highest is 230W, and the average maximum power consumption is 49W. At 74 Watts, the DELL U2717D has a fairly high maximum power consumption compared to most of the other recently released PC screens.
Quite Slow Response Time
The fastest response time of new similar spec flatpanel monitors is 1ms and the slowest is 20ms. With a response time of 8 milliseconds, the DELL U2717D has a quite slow response time compared to most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the U2717D.
Quite Slow SmartResponse
With a smartResponse of 6 milliseconds, the DELL U2717D has one of the slower smartResponses amongst medium monitors of this age. Across all the recently released comparable spec flatpanel monitors the smartResponses range from 5ms to 25ms.
