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.
