Dell is already a known quantity in the professional market with its lineup of well-received UltraSharp monitors. In fact, last year we took the time to review the UltraSharp 27 4K PremierColor Monitor (UP2718Q) and gave it high marks for color reproduction and excellent HDR performance.

This year at Adobe Max 2019, Dell unveiled the 2020 version of the UltraSharp 27 4K PremierColor Monitor (UP2720Q). Dell includes all of the features that made us give its predecessor high marks including 100% Adobe RGB, 98% DCI-P3 and 80% BT2020 coverage. The key upgrades this year come with the addition of two new features: Thunderbolt 3 integration and a built-in colorimeter.

The UP2720Q includes a total of two Thunderbolt 3 ports that supports speeds of up to 40Gbps. Dell says that you will be able to daisy chain up to two 4K monitors using Thunderbolt 3, and each of the available ports are capable of charging a notebook at up to 90W.

As for the built-in colorimeter, this is included to help speed up color calibration for business professionals. Dell also indicates that the UP2720Q is CalMAN Ready and works in conjunction with CalMAN calibration software for use either with the built-in colorimeter or an external counterpart.
