Dell UltraSharp 27 Premier Color UltraHD 4K Monitor Review: HDR And Superior Accuracy

Inspecting The Dell UltraSharp 27 Premier Color UltraHD 4K HDR

While the Dell UltraSharp 27 Premier Color UltraHD 4K HDR monitor is an attractive piece of equipment, it also has a familiar look. The 27" IPS panel is framed in a thin black bezel, with the signtature Dell logo featured at the bottom center. Under the right corner of the bezel is where the OSD button controls are found, just below the power LED. The stand has a smaller footprint than many other monitors in this size category, like the Acer Predator XB252Q gaming monitor, for example. Incidentally, the flat base is also a decent little storage area and it features a opening for neatly routing cables.

The Dell UltraSharp 27 Premier Color UltraHD 4K HDR monitor's stand is also very flexible. It is height adjustable up to 5.7" and the panel can be tilted at -5˚ to 21˚ angles. Users can pivot the panel left to right as well, and it can swivel a full 90˚ (clockwise) into portrait mode, which is handy for many use cases and for multi-monitor configurations.

The display also has a nice compliment of USB 3.0 ports -- there are 2 on the side and 4 around the back (2 are upstream ports). Of these, two can be used as high-speed recharging ports for devices like tablets, cell phones, headphones, game pads, etc.

Turn the panel around and we find the bulk of its connectivity options, which include power, USB, and various display inputs (DisplayPort and HDMI), all lined up neatly in a row. There is also a single audio jack to connect to your output devices like speakers and headphones. Note, however, that there are no embedded speakers and there is no mic input on the display.

In addition to the aforementioned features, the monitor also has an attractive two-tone, black-on-metallic finish on the back of the panel. We should also mention that the Dell UltraSharp 27 Premier Color UltraHD 4K HDR is also VESA mount compatible should you want to use a monitor arm or mount a small form factor PC on the back.
