bad quality control

Frank, Amazon
16 December 2014
  • Summary: I bought this monitor because I like the glossy screen which makes the colors pop. The monitor has a beautiful display, and a sleek modern looking. I have a stuck pixel on the first monitor after three weeks of usage. New monitor arrived, the base was scratched right out of the box. No problem cause I kept the old base and returned them the new scratched base. I am disappointed because of an uneven brightness of the new monitor.

Dell 27 Monitor - S2740L

  • Excerpt: 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.

Gloss, crisp, but condensation on inside of glass!

LiamOB, Dell

  • Summary: This arrived in the mail yesterday, but when I opened it, the inside of the package was damp and cold. Upon setting it up and turning it on, I noticed that I can barely see my cursor in one corner of the screen because there's condensation on the *inside* of the glass!

Not a good 2nd monitor for Alienware laptop

Jsou, Dell
23 January 2014
  • Excerpt: It's beautiful, has great clarity and color (though highly reflective screen)and was a great price (Black Friday deal). However, I cannot get it to work with my son's MX-11 Alienware laptop. It does not matter which type of connection I am using, the monitor will not recognize the laptop and all I get is a message on it that states there is no connection. I am still trying to get it to work and will update the review once it's operable.

Glare? What glare?

rj "rj", Amazon
17 January 2014
  • Summary: I paid nearly $275 for this thing. I can almost shave in it when the sun is up. I replaced a 24" Asus (the one with no sound, but a camera) with it on a Mac. Appul is quite fond of shiny screens, so I guess I should have expected a light fight. Color is good but minimally adjustable. There are better 27" screens. The disclaimed "IPS effect" (light from the screen sides) is nothing compared to the reflection distraction. Unless you're in a dark room, of course.

It's a middle end monitor, you get what you paid for, but it's pretty fine.

  • Summary: Nice monitor, but is very glossy, it should be used in lowlighted ambients, pixel pitch a little big, 27" can easyly be a 16:10 rel. The usb connectors are some difficult to catch, if you are front of the monitor, you should stand up turn to the back of the monitor and put the usb device, it could be to the left or right side so it would be much more easy to use, has a nice touch with the headphones conector via hdmi. Everything else is fine.

Left side yellow tint.

Vladimir Fox, Amazon
5 October 2013
  • Summary: I got my monitor not to long ago. The color is great can't say more then that. On white backgrounds I noticed that the left of the monitor has a slight yellow tint. If your gaming or video watching you don't notice it, but when browsing the internet on white backgrounds the slight yellow tint starts to be come noticeable. I decided to return the monitor for a full refund and reorder hoping that the next monitor wont have this problem.

Outshines both in image quality and reflected light!! Should have listened to other reviews! HDMI overscan trouble.

Technologist "Neil", Amazon
2 October 2013
  • Summary: Having read the many reviews that mention the mirror-like reflective gloss finish of this beautiful display, I ordered one, knowing I could relegate it to a dark room where reflections would not be an issue, but I hoped that I could use it in my office. Well, no way, no way! Believe the reviews! You are going to see anointing at best reflections in any part of the screen that is dark where it essentially behaves as a mirror.
