"Dell has become a dominant force in the monitor market for the simple reason being that they offer sensational displays at competitive prices. Looking at the paperwork, the U2711 has everything you want from a monitor, with the highlight being massive desktop real estate thanks to the 2560 x 1440 resolution on the IPS Panel. Other niceties include 80:000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, 350 cd/m2, 6ms response time and 1.07 billion colour support.
The overall look of the U2711 is sleek and the biggest thing you notice is, well, the 27" screen. The square design also means that if you're looking at Eyefinity you'll be able to get three of these sitting nice and flush with each other."
