Dell has unveiled its latest PC monitor called the U2711. The big screen is a 27-inch beauty with a resolution of 2560 x 1440. For comparison, the resolution on a 30-inch LCD is 2560 x 1600. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 6ms response time.
The contrast ratio is dynamic at 80,000:1 and Dell promises amazing color accuracy with specially tuned Custom Color modes for good color gamut coverage. The screen uses an IPS panel and is backlit with old style CCFL rather than LEDs that offer better colors and less power consumption.
The monitor stand is height adjustable and the LCD has intuitive controls. Inputs on the back of the screen include HDMI 1.3, DisplayPort, and DVI-D with HDCP. The monitor also has a four-port USB hub on the side. The big screen isn't cheap at $1099, but it should be a great LCD for pros and gamers.
