Dell an has revealed its first 27-inch display using “advanced high-performance” IPS (AH-IPS) tech. The UltraSharp U2713HM is claimed to offer improved colors and higher clarity over other IPS systems.
The good news over the model it is replacing, UltraSharp U2711, Dell has updated the DisplayPort to version 1.2 of the standard and the built in USB hub has been updated to USB 3.0. The overall design is sleeker and the stand has been changed slightly and as such the display can be adjusted from a height of 424 to 539mm compared to 428 to 518mm for the U2711. The U2713 HM is also a fair bit lighter at 5.6kg vs. 7.72kg. Another selling point for the U2713 HM is that it draws less than half the power compared to the U2711 at 42W vs. 113W.
Capable of 2560×1440 resolution, the pre-calibrated monitor uses more than 99 percent of the sRGB color space, and has a maximum dynamic contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1. HDMI, Display Port, VGA, and DVI-D connections are available for video sources, while a four-port USB 3.0 hub, an audio output, and a DC power connector for Dell’s AX510 Soundbar are built-in.
The Dell has the UltraSharp U2713HM on sale for $799.
