The UP2716D does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other new medium monitors which have a built-in speaker.
There are a number of alternative PC displays which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to consider including the Acer B346C (£368.65), the Asus MG28UQ (£387.06), or the DELL S2817Q (£327.16) which also has a higher Rating.
+10 More reasons against
Only 2000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the DELL UP2716D is 2000:1. That's 92% less contrast ratio than a 25000:1 flatpanel monitor, which is the most common contrast ratio. The contrast ratio of all latest comparable spec flatpanel monitors ranges from Mega Contrast (worst) to 100000000:1 (best).
If the contrast ratio of this flatpanel monitor is too low for you then you might also want to look at the LG 32SL5B (£449.95) (500000:1), the HP Z24nq (£269.47) (500000:1), or the Wortmann AG TERRA LED 2255W (15000000:1) which also has a higher Rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The UP2716D does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that were released in the last 12 months also do not have a built-in camera.
Alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at include the Asus MG28UQ (£387.06), or the Viewsonic VSD224.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other LCD screens that were released in the last 12 months, the UP2716D does not have an integrated card reader.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Viewsonic VSD224 which also has a higher Rating is also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last year, the UP2716D is not 3D compatible.
This LCD screen has a 2K Ultra HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on medium monitors that came out in the last year.
Only Has One Cable Included
The number of cables included found on the UP2716D is more than most medium monitors that are a similar age to it. The most commonly found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this LCD screen. The cables included Mini DisplayPort|USB are also found on this PC display.
Not Cheap for a Recently Released Similar Spec PC Screen
PC displays that have been around for the last year range in price from £42 to £3,140. We thought that this flatpanel monitor looks expensive for a recently released similar spec PC screen.
Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This flatpanel monitor has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is the most frequently found typical contrast ratio on medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to it.
Very High Power Consumption When in PowerSave Mode
When compared to other medium monitors that have been available for the last year that we have checked the power consumption when in PowerSave mode of, the UP2716D's power consumption when in PowerSave mode of 40 Watts is one of the highest. Recently released PC displays have power consumptions when in PowerSave mode of between 0.21W and 52W, and the average power consumption when in PowerSave mode is 6.5W.
2 Other reasons to consider the DELL UP2716D
LED Display Type
This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many medium monitors that were launched around the same time as it.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display and we think the B296CL (£346.43), and the B346C (£368.65) both from Acer or the Wortmann AG TERRA LED 2255W which has a better Rating is also worth considering.
The UP2716D has a pretty standard width (611.4 millimeters) compared to most of the other similar spec PC monitors that were launched around the same time as the UP2716D.
