Dell 27 Monitor - S2740L

dadmark, Dell
26 March 2014
  • Summary: The Dell 27 Monitor - S2740L is amazing if you use it in a dark room. But the reflection from the glass surface is awful if you watch in any other circumstances.

Very poor black levels, backlight bleed and very reflective

Josh B "Beanbaggage", Amazon
10 March 2014
  • Summary: Dell knows how to make an esthetically pleasing monitor casing. The combination of its silver on black design with the edge to edge glass makes it look good on anybody's desk. This monitor is beautiful! ....until you turn it on. The edge to edge glass does look very nice but is EXTREMELY reflective. Please understand that I have used edge to edge glass products before and love them (including my current 55" LED TV). The office I placed this monitor in is kept very dark.

Worst glare I have ever seen.

Photo123, Dell
3 March 2014
  • Summary: This has to be the worst display I have ever used. The finish on this unit is SUPER glossy and reflects like a mirror. Sure it looks super snazzy sitting on my desk, but when you use it, it is full of reflections and glare. This display only comes with a VGA cable. (How very 1990's) I purchased it as a bundle to use for photo editing. The glare and reflections make it useless for that.

LATEST BATCH OF MONITORS AROUND 11/01/13 yellowish less bright.

Kyle Anderson, Amazon
6 November 2013
  • Summary: I have noticed on purchasing the second monitor from Amazon that the second screen is not nearly as bright. The screen is also a yellowish tint and looks terrible in comparison to the first one I ordered a few months ago. The actual encasing looks the same but the Screen quality has either switched manufacturers or Dell is letting the Quality slip in an attempt to ship more monitors.

Glare Poor quality

RunnerSteve, Dell
21 October 2012
  • Summary: I wanted to like this monitor but the grainy picture and the glare made me send it back.No adjustable stand no card reader. Very poor quality compared to my 2 U2410.So if you live in a dark cave this might be the monitor for you.
