Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today’s list is headlined by a deal on Dell’s 27″ UltraSharp U2717D, which is currently down to $300 at the company’s online store. That’s about $90 off the device’s price elsewhere.
The U2717D is an IPS monitor with a 2560×1440 resolution. It’s not the highest-end panel around: sharper 4K monitors have generally come down in price in recent months, and the U2717D itself isn’t top-of-the-line when it comes to black uniformity and maximum contrast ratio. With a 60 Hz native refresh rate, it’s not built for gaming either.
But its colors, gray uniformity, and viewing angles are all pluses, and the 1440p resolution is still a step up if you’re coming from an older 1080p panel. There’s a full array of ports on the back, and Dell’s design keeps the bezels nice and slim. The monitor comes with a three-year warranty as well. All told, it’s good value at this reduced price.
