Dell UltraSharp 27 (U2717D) review: Big and bright but a little frill-free for the money


The 27-inch UltraSharp U2717D monitor performs well, but don't overpay for it.

The Dell UltraSharp 27 (U2717D) is bright, with good general-purpose resolution and color quality.

Feels a little flimsily built.

It's not the most feature-packed monitor you can get for the money, but the Dell UltraSharp 27 (U2717D) is a fine general-purpose display.
