Product Overview

Dell U2520D is a mainstream 25-inch QHD monitor in Dell's 2020 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit IPS panel.
Notably, this monitor supports HDR up to DisplayHDR 400. In terms of color reproduction, one can expect above average performance. The included stand comes with tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustments that make for a more ergonomic viewing experience. Additionally, this monitor can get quite contrasty.
Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.

Sentiment Score 83%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The U2520D is a good choice for a multi-monitor array. It covers 99.9 percent of the sRGB color space out of the box. It costs less than the Lenovo P27u-10, and it features much better OSD navigation. For about the same money, you get two extra inches of screen estate.

Pros
  • Good color accuracy
  • Full range of ergonomic features
  • Supports daisy-chain a second monitor
Cons
  • Only one HDMI port

Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The Dell UltraSharp U2520D has a high 1440p resolution and its 25-inch screen is big enough for multitasking. It has wide viewing angles, so you can share your screen with others and not lose image accuracy. The monitor has great coverage of the Adobe RGB color space used in photo editing and it also has impressive gradient handling. It's not ideal for working in bright environments as it doesn't handle reflections well.

Pros
  • Outstanding ergonomics
  • Wide viewing angles
  • Great coverage of Adobe RGB color space
Cons
  • Doesn't handle reflections well
  • Not ideal for dark room viewing
