If you're a graphics professional or just someone who fancies the finer things in life, Dell has whipped up a new display you might be interested in. The 27-inch UltraSharp U2711 has an IPS panel similar to the one found in Apple's 27-inch iMac -- except Dell's uses CCFL backlighting and covers over 100% of the color gamut, whereas Apple's relies on LED backlighting and displays 72% of the color gamut.

Dell's UltraSharp U2711 offers a resolution of 2560x1400, 178-degree viewing angles, a 6ms GTG response time, 350cd/m2 brightness, 1,000:1 contrast ratio (80,000:1 dynamic), 0.233mm pixel pitch, and its 12-bit internal processing supports 1.02 billion colors (compared to the typical 16.7 million).


Image quality aside, the monitor is packed with connectivity. Ports include two dual-link DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort (all with HDCP), VGA, component, composite, four USB 2.0, an eight-in-one card reader, and two headphone jacks. Obviously all of this comes at a hefty -- but seemingly reasonable -- price. Dell will ship an UltraSharp U2711 to your doorstep for about $1,099 and back it with a three-year warranty.
