Product Overview

Dell S2721D is a affordable 27-inch QHD monitor in Dell's 2020 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit IPS panel.
Additionally, this monitor can get quite contrasty. It also comes with build-in speakers that make media consumption in a pinch an effortless experience.
In terms of drawbacks, this monitor lacks HDR support and comes with limited adjustments. Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.

Sentiment Score 45%
Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The Dell S2721D is well-suited for work thanks to its large screen and high resolution. It provides a good gaming experience with its low input lag and decent response time. It delivers good picture quality, but its low contrast ratio makes it less ideal for dark room viewing, and it doesn't support HDR.

  • Low input lag
  • Wide viewing angles
  • Great color gamut
  • High refresh rate

Sentiment Score 72%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The Dell S2721D has a 27-inch 1440p screen that hits 99% of the sRGB color gamut. Built-in speakers provide limited audio clarity and don't get very loud. Not supporting high dynamic range (HDR) is also disappointing, but not terribly surprising in such an affordable display.

Pros
  • 75Hz refresh rate
  • High-quality IPS panel
  • Easy to set up
Cons
  • Sub-par speakers
  • No USB connectivity
