Reasons For

DELL S2715H DELL U2515H DELL U2715H
7 Reasons For
Bigger Display Diagonal
The DELL S2715H is a 27" PC monitor, and so does the DELL U2715H. That's 2" bigger than the DELL U2515H (25").

The display diagonal is a measure of the size of the monitor. It is measured from one corner of the screen to the diagonally opposite corner of the screen.

A bigger display diagonal means that the screen will be larger and better for displaying lots of content or for seeing the detail in photos and videos.

Read more Read less | Edit
2ms Faster Response Time
The DELL S2715H has a response time of 6ms (as does the DELL U2715H), but the DELL U2515H is an 8ms response time PC monitor (2ms slower).

The response time on a PC monitor is a measure of how quickly the monitor reacts to image data sent by the computer's graphics card. Fast response times are particularly important for gamers, who should ideally look for a response time of 8 milliseconds or less.

A faster (shorter) response time is better because fast moving graphics will appear smoother and the gaming experience will feel more responsive.

Read more Read less | Edit
Built-In Speaker(s)
The DELL S2715H has a built-in speaker(s), however the DELL U2515H and the DELL U2715H do not.

Built in speakers allow you to output sound through the monitor without any need for external speakers.

With built in speakers you can use the monitor like a TV for watch videos to listening to music.

Cheaper by £170
The DELL S2715H costs £170 less than the DELL U2515H.

It's been a busy time for Dell recently, with all kinds of new models being released in their ever-popular monitor range. We have reviewed their new UltraSharp 24" class models, the U2414H and U2415, and recently their new 27" U2715H. We've got s......
Approved
Nice low cost while still offering 2560 x 1440 resolution of the larger 27" models
Good default factory setup and excellent contrast ratio for an IPS panel
Good response times and low lag
Missing DVI and VGA connections, may be limited for some
IPS glow at normal levels, had maybe hoped for low-glow like recent 2414H
Caution advised with small pixel pitch for some users
Readers won't be disappointed to hear that the U2515H compares very well to the other recent Dell UltraSharp screens. It is very similar overall to the smaller 24" U2414H / U2415 and 27" U2715H models. The feature set, spec, connections and design ar...

Improved AG coating with no cross-hatching patterns
Decent default factory setup
Improved, low lag
Some uniformity issues on our sample
More limited variety of connections compared with 2713HM
IPS glow at normal levels, had maybe hoped for low-glow like recent 2414H
The old U2713HM has been a very popular screen for a couple of years now and with good reason, it's a very good all-round display with some decent IPS performance and backed by Dell's warranty, brand and support. We've made comparisons with the old m...
