Amazon.com: Dell S2721QS 27 Inch 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) IPS Ultra-Thin Bezel Monitor, AMD FreeSync (HDMI, DisplayPort), VESA Certified, Silver: Computers & Accessories
Mod Price Update: $303.94

I was shopping for a new home use and gaming monitor, and I was about to get the LG 27UL500-W, which is a Prime deal for $299.99, but then I noticed this Dell 27" 4k HDR Freesync IPS monitor, which is comparable - however the Dell has higher brightness (350 cd/m^2), contrast (1300:1), slightly wider sGRB color gamut, thinner bezel and a much better stand (adjustable height/tilt/rotation vs fixed) for the same price. It even includes speakers as a bonus.

After a little further research this seems to me like the better buy, and at $299.99 is lower than previous posts for this Dell.

Just received this and the comparable LG 27UL850. Returning the LG and using the cost savings toward a USB C dock. Hardly noticed any differences in picture quality.

How does this Acer compare? You need Costco membership. It's $249.99 plus you get a Costco Shop Card worth 15% of the purchase (~$37.50).

The Acer at Costco is 1440p@75 Hz and the Dell is 4k or 2160p@60 Hz.

If you're going to go for 1440p resolution, you should probably instead spend a bit more and get 144 Hz refresh, like this other Acer XV272U model on Amazon for $299.99, assuming you might want that for gaming.

But if you're only wanting to use it for web browsing and stuff, and you don't want or need the higher resolution of a 4k monitor (in general, UI text will be smaller), then sure get the Costco one.

This is a new monitor but there have been early reports (including in photos posted in a recent slickdeals thread) of uneven brightness near the edges.

Right when it came out it was around $310 at some other stores, so don't feel like you need to pull the trigger today.

Agree it's not a high end 4k gaming monitor since it's only 60 Hz, but not anyone needs or can afford a high refresh 4k gaming monitor.

It'll be great for me coming from an old 24" 1900x1200@60 Hz monitor.

You're quoting from the Dell 32" BTW
Are you gaming on 60hz and have you gamed on 120hz+? My eyes struggle with gaming for more than 5min on lower hz is why I'm curious. Maybe resolution or new screen technology helps lower hz?

Can anyone comment on the process to switch between inputs? Is there a quick-switch toggle or anything? The last Dell I had was a great monitor, but switching inputs required like 4 or 5 button presses, and the fancy capacitive touch-buttons took like an extra second to wake up before you could use them.

For someone who frequently switches between his laptop and desktop on the same monitor, that got to be frustrating.

VESA? Don't see it unless I'm blind, which is a high possibility

How does this compare to the LG 27UK850?

https://www.amazon.com/LG-27UK850...078GVTD9N/

Is the LG worth the extra $80?

I looked at that one as well, and I concluded no. The big difference is the LG-27UK850-W has USB/USB-C with 60W PD if that matters for you.

Also earlier in the thread, another poster has this Dell and the newer LG-27UL850-W (a refresh of the LG-27UK850-W) and is deciding to return the LG.

Bought this at Amazon roughly 2 weeks ago. Happy with it so far. Noticed that for the mac users, you will need additional dp cables to reach 4K 60hz. Using the default hdmi cable only gives you 30hz.

That's a good point, the USB-C is somewhat of a factor for me as a Mac user. Thanks for pointing that out.

It takes 4 button presses to switch inputs, but this monitor has physical buttons.
