Which would you recommend? I really like Dell ultrasharp ips displays (I have two of the 1080p 24 inch models and they look better than my crappy $250 acer 1440p monitor that's 4 years old). So I have been eyeing this but its only 60 hz and it's high refresh counterpart is a TN panel

> Color Software

Davinci Resolve. Easy on a budget and very powerful.

> Monitors

If you color accuracy check out Flanders Scientific, and keep it calibrated. Or if you just want some good monitors I recommend Dell U2715H IPS monitors

> Hardware (specs needed to manage and edit 4K efficiently)

Transcode. Transcode. Transcode. Editing raw 4k is doable, but if you're with clients you're going to want reliable playback. Use DNxHR or Prores 422 and relink your raw in for color and delivery.

If you want Mac go with the trash can. If you want PC check out the HP Z workstations or build a custom computer. I just put this build together for 4K editing, compositing, and color correction.

If you can do it invest in a SAN over 10 Gigabit ethernet. Facilis Terrablock is the go to for shared storage if you're not using an ISIS. Transcode files and store them on the SAN. Keep your raw on at least two hard drives that are offline until color/finish.

Este es el que yo compré.

Acá te pongo el detalle de lo que pagué.

En total termina quedando 9500 pesos, directo a la puerta de mi casa en 7 días desde UK.

Por lo que tengo entendido para sacarte la clave fiscal nivel 3 solamente tenes que ir a la AFIP con el documento y te la hacen. A mi me daba fiaca asi que terminé usando el CUIL de mi vieja que ya tenia la clave nivel 3.

Una vez que te llega el pedido solamente tenes que ingresar al sistema de la AFIP y marcar como recibido el paquete.

Cualquier cosa podes revisar la guía que hizo u/Sharkiller en 3dgames donde esta todo bien explicado.

u/USTS2011 · 4 pointsr/WeddingPhotography

keep this in mind too, although that ASUS looks like a better buy

u/IdeaPowered · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Always good to check this:

Don't trust amazon's %discounts. It's always on release price...

u/motionglitch · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

For 1440p, Go with any 27" with IPS panel. But I recommend Dell UltraSharp

For 1080p 144hz, Viewsonic XG2402 or if you can find one, a Nixeus VUE24. They both have Freesync so if you have an AMD card, it's a plus.

u/McMurry · 3 pointsr/Monitors

Got my wife one of these and she loves it: Dell UltraSharp U2715H 27-Inch

u/neilsarkar81 · 3 pointsr/mac
  1. 4K: Dell P2415Q (looks amazing in retina mode)
  2. HD: Dell U2415 (not retina, but very good panel)
  3. 27-inch: Dell U2715H (if you need bigger screen)
u/exoskeleton314 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I am looking for a primary monitor that is 1440p 144Hz, 27", and a secondary monitor that is 27" and 1440p, but 60 Hz instead (I want to be able to move things back and forth across the monitors without them changing size, essentially, but don't need as good of a monitor for the second screen). I was also hoping they would look somewhat similar, so my setup doesn't seem mismatched.

I had two ideas:
Dell S2716DG main/ Dell UltraSharp U2715H secondary for a total of $999.98


Asus ROG Swift PG279Q main / Asus PB278Q secondary for a total of 1178.99

Is there a better option than one of these? Which of these set-ups is preferred?

u/WaywardWes · 2 pointsr/Surface

If you want/need color accuracy, Dell has some great ones that also have USB3 hubs built in. I have the U2715H and really like it.

u/Domesplit · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I've used these professionally, albeit only briefly for a few months, but they are freakin gorgeous IPS displays:

u/imtheproof · 2 pointsr/buildapc

This is another one but slightly above your listed price:

and here's a older one but still good, slightly below your listed price:

u/KindaLucid · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I'm going to list a few. All of these meet or beat your requirements, I believe (sorted lowest -> highest price):

  • BenQ GW2765HT:
  • ASUS PB278Q:
  • Dell U2715H:
  • ASUS MG279Q:

    Only the last one (the ASUS MG279Q) has FreeSync support. But all are 1440p, 27", IPS panels, have VESA support, and are under $500. Hope this helps.
u/epijdemic · 2 pointsr/Surface

I am using this on a SB doing ScreenDesign and I am very happy with it.

depending on what you wanna do with it. for instance I have an IPS panel, which is considered better for graphic design because of higher viewing angles and deeper blacks, while a TN panel is better for gaming because of higher refresh rates.

u/red286 · 2 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

True borderless monitors tend to be expensive and large (46"+). For thin bezel monitors, personally I prefer the HP EliteDisplay models (such as the E223, E233, E243, and E273). Other good rated ones are the AOC i2267FW, the Dell U2715H, the ASUS MX27AQ, and the LG 27UD68-P.

u/Pun_In_Ten_Did · 2 pointsr/PS4

I use Dell XPS 27 AIO

Similar to this monitor on Amazon but mine is a touch screen.

u/urand · 2 pointsr/Monitors

I've had good experience with Dell monitors at work:

u/jaykresge · 2 pointsr/Monitors

Dell U2715H while it's on sale for $400.

You'll get unparalleled color accuracy out of the box (yes, it can be made better with calibration tools, but not by much), great build quality. I think it's marginally better than my U2717D (successor model), but the 2717 was $150 cheaper when I bought. Not now.

u/nokmanoks2 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

The Dell U2715H is a good monitor for those specs.

If you haven't tried a 144Hz monitor before, you really aren't missing out on anything really, as long as you get at least 60 fps in games.

u/xMisterTryHard · 2 pointsr/Monitors

I think it is if the price is within reason. I definitely don't think you need another s2716dg, and that is where it gets hard. There are appropriately priced options out there imo, but not sold by Dell so if you want them to look the same it will be a higher price tag.

Basically if I were you would want IPS, same size and perferrably same bezel. Options there are something like a U2715H or U2717D from Dell. Removing the bezel preference drops the price form $500ish to mid $300s. Then just go for what looks nice and will work well (make sure to pay attention to vesa capabilities). In the end if thats more then you want to spend, pick up the SE2717H on Newegg right now for $140 and $130 after $10 MIR. This monitor is only 1080 but for a good price and has an almost identical bezel to the S2716DG. It can be mounted as well but with an adapter sold seperately and a proper monitor arm.

Edit: and after everything above, if time isn't a constraint, just wait and play the market for a 1440 monitor in the future as sales are bound to happen eventually.

Edit 2: Something like this would do very nicely if you can justify the cost.
Dell U2717D

Edit 3: Upon further looking I guess I would go for the U2715H over the U2717D as it has a better stand, and VESA capabilites if you wanted that (if you don't now, you may in the future).

u/random0munky · 2 pointsr/Monitors

I am a Dell monitor fan boy.

I purchased one of these back in 2013:

Searching Dell monitors, I believe the Dell Ultrasharp line have the best color reproduction as well as they come calibrated from the factory. I purchased all my monitors open box or slightly used for a huge discount. Just make sure you can easily return the item if you aren't totally satisfied.

Check this one out:

Check out the used section. Also check out to get a price history of the monitor.

u/UngluedChalice · 1 pointr/photography

Any advice on whether to get a 27" or 24" monitor? I'm looking at the Dell Ultrasharp models, as recommended by thewirecutter.

u/absolutarin · 1 pointr/macbookpro

I think 16GB should be good enough for all the work you have. Again, if budget is not a constraint, go for the bigger one. Have you thought of buying Apple refurbished products? It's a really good option. They're basically the same thing at discounted prices and warranty. I bought a refurb as well. Link here

The money you save here can be put on AppleCare or an external monitor. And don't buy isn't necessary. I've been using a 27" Dell UltraSharp U2715H since 2016 and it still performs flawlessly.

u/thegassypanda · 1 pointr/buildapc

And i actually got the 980ti sc+ not the one there and just upgraded to that as my monitor

u/13r3fsqfdf · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace
u/JuaniBst · 1 pointr/argentina

Aca todo es caro, pero no podes pagar ese delirio por el monitor cuando el Dell Ultrasharp 27" está al mismo precio que el monitor de la foto o un poco más ( Este, en cambio, en Amazon cotiza a US$ 449.99 con un 31% de descuento y el precio de lista es US$ 649.99 ( Si le sumas tax y envío, comprándolo con promo en USA te quedaría $11.000, y $16.000 sin promo.

Lamentablemente hay que buscar mucho más precio acá para que la diferencia no sea tan grande, pero si convalidas el precio de la foto comprándolo es tu problema.

u/notagayguy69 · 1 pointr/buildapc

If you had to choose, which of these two monitors would you go with:

  1. Dell 27' QHD

  2. Dell 24' Inch QHD w/ G-Sync
u/JitteryPenguin · 1 pointr/photography

Does anyone have any recommendations for a photo editing display? Looking for something between 24" and 30" (27" would be great) with as good of color accuracy as possible for ~$500 or less. Anything over 25" I would like to be 2560px resolution, 25" and smaller can be 1920px. I don't need 4k unless it doesn't add to the price and I don't care about games or display response times.

This is the one I've been looking at, but I'm not sure about it.

u/MythicalPigeon · 1 pointr/Monitors

You may have to raise your budget to around $450-500. Not sure about VESA compatibility on most of these, but I think the HP has it. I believe there are cheaper/better options, but not with thin bezels and VESA as far as I know, but I could be wrong.


LG 27UD68 (Has Free-Sync)

HP ENVY 27 (Also has Free-Sync)

Dell P2715Q (Thicker bezels, but a good 4k monitor)


Dell U2715H

Dell S2718D

Edit: If you are fine with 25", the Dell U2515H is very good.

u/HellaBester · 1 pointr/hackintosh
u/buyingamonitor · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I've never used a 1440p or 4k monitor so I'm not sure how noticeable the difference is and therefore how important it is to me.

What makes This dell you suggested preferable to the BenQ someone else suggested when as far as I can tell, their specs are identical. Where does the nearly hundred dollar price difference come from?

Are all IPS displays matte?

What does response time refer to? Is that different from Hz and display lag?

What would be an option that is a really good value, and what would be an option that would eliminate the need to decide on what features I would like and what I would like to sacrifice? That would run me upwards of a grand wouldn't it?

You say matte displays sacrifice color and contrast but then go on to say a high quality matte IPS doesn't have this problem. Is that correct?

What's the deal with all these curved monitors I'm seeing?

Both responses I've gotten have suggested LED monitors exclusively, are they universally preferable?

u/DarkZyth · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

For warranty most products come with a standard manufacturer warranty (it can be 90 days, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, 4 years, etc.) unless you want a longer warranty with better coverage. Most Dell products come with a 3 year limited warranty which covers dead pixels and such.

Also as for resolution would you be fine with 1080p or 1440p instead of 4K? Unless you plan on getting better computer hardware to support that resolution while gaming. A choice between this Dell 1440P w/ thin bezels and IPS display or if you do in fact want 4K this Dell 4K display is also nice with an IPS matte finish.

For display, Matte sacrifices color reproduction and contrast for better response times. Glossy has much better color reproduction and better contrast but do tend to have glare if lights are behind you unless it has an anti-glare coating. A better option would be finding a high quality Matte IPS display so colors stay accurate in different viewing angles and have a high response time with no glare.

I'm pretty sure /u/JustinKSK has posted these over the past month (some of which were deleted). To my knowledge, they are another form of affiliate links.

If I'm wrong, that's fine, but I would like to know what the flash-amzon links are then.

u/ackzilla · 1 pointr/Monitors

There is a Dell Ultrasharp,

but it's out of my range.

u/visualexstasy · 1 pointr/hardwareswap
u/OngoGablogian- · 1 pointr/Monitors

Literally just came across this monitor browsing Amazon and it seemed almost too good to be true for the price/brand.

Like you I'm not seeing many major negatives but a whole lot of positives, my biggest thing I'm a paranoid purchaser and whenever something seems too good to be true, I feel like there's some major drawback I just haven't noticed.

Like you said, a 2K IPS, 5ms response time, and 75hz refresh rate at 27" seems to tick all the boxes you'd want in a quality mid-level display; so is the price just reflective of limited physical attributes like no VESA & height adjustment?

I'm struggling to see how its not otherwise a better display than the Dell UltraSharp U2715H which costs a full $200.00 more.

I'm no monitor expert though so like I said I definitely could be missing something.

u/HarryPopperSC · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I have 2 of those exact monitors in 27 inch 1440p > I got them a few years ago before 144hz 1440p monitors even existed. They are good and the response time is pretty low for ips panels.

The monitor you linked is basically the same thing but curved and ultrawide aswell looks like a good choice. I would still say try to find a 144hz 1440p one if you can, you might find a killer deal ;)

u/zyshanaryf · 1 pointr/buildapc

You might be interested in the U2715H. It's been dropping in price so might get close to $500 in a couple months.

I'm been following it's price over here in the UK and so far, since about November, it's dropped from £500 to £409 on Amazon.

u/TurnOneYeti · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I got a 970 ftw for the holiday and I'm upgrading my monitor too. Definitely decided on 1440p and currently looking at the new 27in Dell u2715h.

u/CantaloupeCamper · 1 pointr/buildapc

New Monitor Time!


A year or more ago I did a build with a GTX 770 card here and everyone was very helpful, thanks again. I finally am getting around to upgrading my way old Dell 21" god knows what model LCD.

I'm tempted to go with the new Dell U2715H. From googling around I believe at 2560x1440 pixels I'll probably be pushing the single 770 I have while gaming pretty hard and need to drop some settings or the resolution. I don't feel the need to max everything out all the time so dropping some settings here or there isn't a big concern for me. I'm willing to spend ~$600.

The new Dell U2715H looks particularly attractive as I loath glossy screens and word has it the U2715H does a good job bridging the gap between glossy and matte.

Beyond gaming I do some photo / video editing.

I've been a bit out of the monitor tech / news for a while now so I'm just coming up to speed. Any other monitors / factors I should consider?

u/rheus · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I was thinking about buying a 4k monitor but I went with QHD. It is fine with 27" and I believe it would be ok with 24" as long as windows dpi scaling is set to 125%.

I have the Dell UltraSharp U2715H 27" and I love it.

I use it for both gaming and graphics, and it is a good compromise with amazingly accurate colors (it was manually color corrected "out of the box") and low input lag.

And amazingly enough, it scales down to full HD without smearing!

u/cannotseeallends · 1 pointr/mac
u/74300291 · 1 pointr/battlestations

They are, but I've been using a glossy Mac laptop for 6 years in various environments and have grown accustomed to it. Stockholm syndrome, maybe? I believe the U series has some thin bezel matte ones now, but the cost is prohibitive for what I want to do.

On the other end of the spectrum, BenQ has some cheapo monitors with good ratings I may try. Thick bezel, but way cheaper.

u/Craycraft · 1 pointr/battlestations

I actually was looking at that exact monitor. It looks like a solid choice. I'm up in the air between a few options and that's one of my top ones right now.

Dell S2417DG 24-Inch Screen LED-Lit TN QHD 2560 x 1440, 165Hz Refresh Rate, 1ms Response Time

ASUS PB277Q 27" WQHD 2560x1440 75Hz 1ms

Dell UltraSharp U2715H 27-Inch


u/MaximaFuryRigor · 1 pointr/bapcsalescanada

I do photo editing on a Dell Ultrasharp 27" 1440p IPS screen. It's fantastic, and a very noticeable upgrade in colour gamut from a TN monitor. This is the newer version of mine. No idea if that sale is amazing or just decent, but it's certainly less than I paid for my monitor ~4 years ago.

u/Mutt_Zeppi_ · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Well what's your price range? If you're looking into professional 4k, 700$ is a good starting price point.

If your budget is lower than this I'd suggest sticking to 1440p. There are plenty of really nice 1440p IPS monitors in the 400-600$ range.

You need to consider what it is you REALLY need and make your decision based off of that. If all you do is game, I'd strongly suggest just getting a good TN panel instead of a bad IPS panel.

u/FlaKK · 1 pointr/Monitors

I think what I'm going to do is go ahead and buy the U2715H because it was pointed out to me that having two gaming monitors is kind of pointless being that I will only game on one at a time.

u/shinramyun247 · 1 pointr/buildapc

It’s a great monitor, but do you REALLY need 4K? Think this through because you are using just a CPU and no GPU so if you want to utilize and have more performance from the CPU when rendering, I would recommend a 25-27 inch 1440p, just as good but easier on the cpu so you have more to work with, even though the CPU does support 4K. Secondly you have PLENTY of room in that case, I don’t know what you’re talking about, especially the fact that it will not have a GPU. The case also supports up to one 2.5 storage mount.

Tip: Also if you did have Windows 7 or 8 in the past, that same serial key will work to activate Windows 10.

My suggestion to you:

u/Plaidsox · 1 pointr/buildapcforme

Very interesting, I'll look more into benchmarks and such.

How much do you know about monitors? I have a guy in my area selling this Dell monitor ( ) , which is 1440p IPS and very well reviewed, thin bezels etc, and I could get it for $230 from him. It seems like a great deal if there are no dead pixels etc, what do you think? I have no idea how factory warranties come for monitors so not sure if buying used is safe or not.

u/DLCTransactions · 1 pointr/Monitors

You should take a look at the Dell Ultrasharp lineup. Excellent monitors. Best 27" 1440p IPS panel in my opinion:

u/Photosniper89 · 1 pointr/WWII

Yep, 1080 is outputted. This is my monitor

Playing the game off of an external wouldn't be the root of this would it?

u/guns_r_us · 1 pointr/nvidia

I'm running dual 1080p right now but upgrading to dual 1440p when I get a new card. (I would suggest trying out the 1440p if you get a chance, ever since I did I'm salivating over the dell 27 inch displays with super thin bezels.) I'm getting one of each:

1080ti might be overkill for 1080p but will be future proof for years. I'm hoping for 100+ fps @ 1440p on the 1080 ti.

u/hyperclock255 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

If u are into IPS, I would suggest the Dell UltraSharp U2715H. You should include your budget. It helps people to suggest ;)

Edit: Newer model

u/otavio021 · 1 pointr/brasil

OP, eu acho que vale a pena gastar um pouco mais e comprar um modelo QHD ou um 4k. No trabalho eu tenho um Dell U2715H e ele é sensacional. Embora seja um modelo com alguns anos de mercado, ele não deve nada em relação aos modelos mais novos. Além disso, por ser um modelo já estabelecido o preço dele tem caído bastante nos últimos meses.

u/EugeneMJC · 1 pointr/graphic_design

This is probably the closest monitor to the thunderbolt. I mean you could always try and find a used thunderbolt for sale if you really wanted it.
