According to Dell, it is capable of reproducing 99% of the sRGB space and 90% of the DCI-P3, or what is the same, more than a billion colors.

Although undoubtedly its strong point is the inclusion of its 1800R curved panel, a format that is gaining more and more presence with the use of large screens, and above all, with the use of multiple monitors.

Thought more for everyday use than for gaming, we find more normalized response speeds of five milliseconds GTG; although the compatibility with AMD FreeSync technology. In addition, Dell has implemented other image enhancement technologies such as the ComfortView with Flicker-free display, which promises to reduce eye strain for long sessions of use.

Finally, regarding connectivity, the monitor has two HDMI 2.0 ports, one DisplayPort 1.2, three USB 3.0 and an audio output. Although we will also have the presence of two built-in speakers on the back side of it, with a power of five watts for each one.

In the same way, we will again have refresh rates of 60 Hz, although with a slight improvement in response times, reduced to 4 milliseconds.

Technologies that we will see repeated in the Dell 27 (S2721DS), which maintaining parity for almost all its main characteristics, will present a reduction in the resolution of its panel, limited in this case to QHD (2,560 x 1,440 pixels), but increasing its refresh rate to 75 Hz.

Unfortunately, the reduction in panel size will come with a considerable reduction in its typical contrast on both models, only offset by a small increase in its brightness. Although something that we will see unchanged will be the support of the color range, which will remain at 99% sRGB.
