With the Dell S2722DC, a new office 4K computer monitor came onto the market a few weeks ago, which we want to illuminate later for the sake of completeness. The Dell 4K monitor has a 27-inch IPS panel with WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) and achieved a maximum of 75 Hz refresh rate.
The Dell 27 inch 4K monitor has a contrast ratio of 1000: 1, the color depth is 8 bits, the response time is 4 ms (gray to gray), and the luminance is 350 cd/m². There is 99 percent of the sRGB color space is covered. Furthermore, two internal 3-watt speakers and FreeSync support (without LFC) are included.
On the interface side, two HDMI 1.4 inputs, a USB 3.2 hub, a headphone output, and USB-C with DisplayPort -Alternate mode and 65-watt power delivery can be used. The typical power consumption of the Dell 27 inch monitor is estimated at 17.7 watts.
Dell S2722DC weighs 5.4 kg without a stand can rotate, skew, adjust the height in pivot shift or by VESA mount uptake on a wall or an arm. A blue light filter and flicker-free background lighting do not have to be dispensed with either.
