The Dell U2724DE delivers solid image quality alongside a stunning selection of connectivity. At $649.99 MSRP, it offers a 27-inch widescreen, 2560×1440 native resolution, and a 120Hz refresh rate, which enhances motion performance and makes it more suitable for gaming. The monitor also features In-Plane Switching (IPS) Black for improved contrast and VRR Adaptive Sync. Its most notable feature is the extensive connectivity options, including Thunderbolt 4, USB-C, USB-A, HDMI, DisplayPort, and a 2.5G RJ45 jack for Ethernet connectivity.
The U2724DE’s design is minimalist with thin display bezels and a solid stand that provides significant ergonomic adjustment. The extensive connectivity options are controlled through a responsive on-screen menu accessed from a joystick tucked around the lower right bezel.
In terms of image quality, the U2724DE offers strong contrast, a wide color gamut, and adequate brightness for most situations. Its color accuracy is mid-pack but more than adequate for home office and productivity monitors, with a balanced, realistic image quality.
However, the monitor does not offer 4K resolution, HDR support, and has some caveats with its Adaptive Sync. Despite these drawbacks, the U2724DE remains a fantastic do-it-all display with a staggering selection of connectivity features.
