Product Comparison: Dell UltraSharp U2713HM vs Dell U2715H IPS
- The 27" display size finally makes text large enough to be readable.
- The high resolution was appreciated when compared to other panels running 1080p -- the extra screen real estate was great.
- This monitor is fantastic, excellent resolution, super easy menu, works perfectly with the Accell B119B-007J UltraAV Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Cable connected to my MacBook Pro.
- Am running it at its native resolution of 2560 x 1440 (always set the graphics controller to match the monitor's native resolution for the sharpest displays). Everything on it is very crisp and sharp. I love it.
- Refresh rates for gaming/movies is not what it was designed to be optimal for. And I haven't/don't use it in the vertical portrait orientation so I cannot speak to that function.
- The resolution, although only 2K, is more than enough for almost any application. I never finding myself wishing it was a 4K monitor. The size is also perfect for me - big enough to edit 30MP photos, but not so big you have to turn your head to see from side to side.
- Nice size/resolution, beautiful design, thin bezel, nice controls, nice software options (shutting off/dimming the monitor on screensaver is handy) good amount of options on the onscreen menu, decent refresh times, does ok at gaming.
- The QHD resolution looks good at 27" - definitely a step up from 1080, but not so much that a good video card won't be able to deliver high frame rate (unlike 4k where you really need multiple cards to get decent FPS)
- The monitor's display is very, very good and the 27" size and 1440p resolution are excellent. Some might find the ppi a little on the small side, but it is excellent for me. There is very little backlight bleed and no noticeable input lag - I use the monitor mainly for flight sims.
- I find the size of this screen to be just about perfect and certainly a huge upgrade from the 21.5" 1680*1050 monitor I used to use as my main monitor.

- Nice bright colors. No tweaking necessary unless you do color accurate work.
- Excellent display quality with good color accuracy and matte finish.
- Very high quality panel used. The screen is very bright, detailed, and the image quality is top notch. Photo editting on this monitor is a dream.
- Comes factory calibrated with it's own unique calibration report. Good to know I have a monitor with an sRGB preset that is accurate out of the box. (The sRGB preset is very close to my calibrated ASUS monitor. A calibration is a must for the ASUS if you'll be doing any color critical work.)
- Backlight bleed on these monitors are HORRIBLE. Visible in the corners and sides. Leakage is very uneven.
- The U2713HM display's defaults are much too bright and too much contrast. Should reduce brightness to a value of about 20, and contrast to 40. Increased room light levels may require the monitor brightness and contrast to be raised or lowered accordingly.
- The color reproduction is superb out of the box, and with calibration it is amazing. It stays in calibration for over a month with no problem.
- The color has been dead on, never had any lag issues (those tend to stem from your cpu and gpu guys), and it has held up really well.
- The color reproduction is very good, very nice detail in blacks even at extremely low (1,1,1) vs (0,0,0) levels and bright pure whites. The color consistency however leaves something to be desired.
- This is a very good all around monitor. It has great color reproduction and contrast, respectable refresh time, and a solid design that allows for easy position adjustment and cable management.
- When they engineered this monitor they tried to keep the cost down and went cheap on the internal components. This has caused serious issues with lag and color.
- Excellent display and display stand engineering and design. Monitor can be very easily raised or significantly lowered, as well as twisted or rotated sideways. All awhile being very sturdy.
- Full range of adjustments on the stand (up, down, tilt, rotate).
- The menus, buttons, and settings are quite easy to use, though it was set up fairly well from the factory and I've made few changes.
- Sturdy stand. The monitor feels very secure and stable on the stand. The pivot movement is smooth as well.
- Menu OSD could use a few more shortcut options, along with the ability of further customize the colors. (ie. Text preset is too blue, and I find I will have multiple light room light levels requiring different brightness/contrast settings.)
- I have had this monitor for almost 3 years now, and it still works great. The stand is fantastic, easy to adjust, and hasnt degraded at all over the years.
- Decent stand adjusts up and down and includes basic cable tidying ability.
- Control buttons are "touch sensitive" and a little awkward but once you get used to them they are fine.Monitor seems to be very adaptable as to height, viewing angle etc. even having a portrait position.
- Look smart; nice adjustable height and angle. Nice sharp image, good colour and contrast, even display even from an angle.
- Touch sensor menu buttons aren't terrible and I got use to them very quickly. Menu itself is clear and easy to use (classic dell menu).
- Input ports galore. All monitors should come with this many input ports.
- I love the USB 3.0 hub on the left side of the monitor. I don't have to plug my USB flash drives on my tower anymore.
- There are tons of connection options in the back - which led to some confusion when I first got it.
- Connected it using the included dual-link DVI cable and Windows was able to identify it and defaulted to the native 2560x1440 resolution without any issues.
- The cables are a bit of a hassle since they need to be connected from the bottom of the monitor but that is something that you do once and then forget it.
- This is a great monitor for my Mac Mini (2014) which I use at home. I also have an Apple Thunderbolt monitor at the office, and it's just as good as that one in terms of display quality. However, this one has four video inputs and a USB 3 hub. I get 2560x1440 at 60 Hz on the mini.
- The selection of ports is very generous, including a USB port that continues to charge devices when the monitor is off. The audio out is especially nice, as I have my game consoles hooked up to one of the monitors in addition to my computer - I don't need a receiver to get audio from the consoles.
- I have a little niggle in that using the included display port cable on a windows machine, programs get re-sized every so often, which isn't a huge problem but is annoying.
- Connectivity is another strong side of this monitor. It supports DP1.2 but it has to be switched on in the menus. Does not support VGA and I see this as a positive.
- Plugged in via Display Port (glad to finally ditch the clunky bigger DVI), and happy to report no dead pixels (you always hold your breath on that first power-on, dontcha?)
