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.

OK price, but after having USB-C with power port, which eliminates the need for a docking station and/or a laptop power supply, I can't go back. In the near future, most monitors except for the lowest priced ones will have USB-C with power.
How does this work?
You power the Monitors with regulaor AC Cable and then the USB-C Powers the Laptop?

agreed about wanting USB ports on the monitor (in general, not specifically USB-C). i have it today and it's extremely convenient. wont buy a monitor that doesn't have USB ports.

Yes, many of the new Dell Ultrasharp monitors have USB-C with power (up to 90W, and 60W if it's a Dell laptop). At 90W, that's enough to power a MacBook, most thin and light notebooks, or tablet. USB-C would provide power, video connectivity up to 4K @ 60Hz, and audio (if your monitor supports). It's one cable from monitor to laptop. USB upstream ports could be valuable also, but I'm sold on USB-C with power.

This monitor can't do 4K@60hz using the hdmi port. . You have to use the display port and possible a converter cable only.

No point in buying a monitor that you can't even use the two provided HDMI port to do 4K@60hz. This monitor is gimped, probably going to return this.
Thats unfortunate. id want to run it to my xbox or ps and pc

This is incorrect; it can run 4K@60 Hz over HDMI port, and using the included cable just fine.

I have it set up this way right now. See attached photo
(the blurriness is because the shot is slightly out of focus, not because of the display)

You will get the best result by running these over display port. Even one of these over hdmi looked inferior over what display port was able to reproduce.

Note, these come with an hdmi cable. If you have display port, do yourself a favor and pick up a DP cable if you do not already have one.
I suspect you are noticing a difference in visual quality in your case with Displayport vs HDMI likely because your graphics output is older than HDMI 2.0 which is somewhat newer, and is when 4K@60 Hz support arrived for HDMI, and so you are running 4K@30 Hz. In contrast, Displayport supported 4K@60 Hz (actually up to 75 Hz) years earlier in its standard definition process, starting with DP 1.2.

If you have a newer graphics card that supports HDMI 2.0+, then you can set it for 4k@60 Hz over either DP or HDMI using the included HDMI cable, and you should not notice any quality difference, at least I did not.

But I agree if your graphics output is older than HDMI 2.0, then by all means I agree with you that buying an inexpensive Displayport cable so you can connect to this monitor using 4K@60 Hz over Displayport is worth it.

Thank for the info. The graphics card running both of these is a GTX 1080. Appreciate the input!

That's interesting to hear, GTX 1080 does have a HDMI 2.0b interface...so I'm wondering what it is you're perceiving as the significant difference in visual quality?

I recommend checking your HDMI cables to make sure they are high speed 18Gbps & 4K@60Hz. I recently discovered some of my labeled high speed HDMI cables were not actually 18Gbps rated. Once I switched them out I had a huge improvement in picture quality. These are a good deal if you need some: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1

The monitor included cable will work fine at 4k@60 Hz FYI.
