Monitors are easily one of the most overlooked aspects of our PCs today. While gamers and graphic designers may be picky about what display sits on their desk or comes in their laptop, most people just grab what seems reasonable while keeping cost to a minimum.
This is your wake up call: we stare at these things for hours and hours every day. It’s okay to treat your eyes and your computing productivity to a proper display. Like anything these days, there are tons of options in the LCD market, so we are going to focus on one of the long standing high-bang-for-the-buck models: Dell’s UltraSharp U2713HM.
While this gorgeous display does offer a lot for your dollar, it still costs a fair bit more than your average monitor. For all the extra coin, though, you are stepping up to a large 27-inch screen that offers a very impressive 2560×1440 (WQHD) resolution.
Even if we just consider the size and resolution of this display, it will be a huge boon for your productivity. Most people with a standard laptop LCD or entry-level desktop monitor simply don’t realize the benefits of lots of desktop real estate until they experience it. Having multiple windows side-by-side, room to keep your email or IM client open next to a main document, and the like are very important benefits of greater screen real estate.
But the U2713HM isn’t just a giant monitor; it’s also a gorgeous one. It uses an IPS (in-plane switching) panel, which as we’ve covered before offers amazing viewing angles, and deep, rich colors. Have you ever tried to show someone standing near you your screen, only to have to adjust its angle or the person get all up in your personal space? IPS screens are perfectly viewable from all but the most extreme angles; all of which are why you’ll find IPS panels in all of Apple’s premium products.
Not only is the U2713HM a very high quality display, it has a lot of premium extras like a height, tilt, and pivot adjustable stand, and four-port USB 3.0 hub. It will connect to nearly any device you’ve got with DVI, DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA inputs.
Rounding out this premium display’s accolades is a 3-year advance exchange warranty, meaning Dell will ship you a replacement monitor straight away if yours ever bites the dust — and you just return the defective one back in the same box with prepaid shipping. Dell also guarantees no bright pixels on the LCD Panel for those 3 years.
