Dell Launches New 27-inch 1440p U2713HM Monitor

When you go shopping for a new monitor, the resolution you’re most commonly going to see these days is 1920×1080. Heck, even most TVs are going to be 1080p. However, most people wouldn’t use a TV as their regular monitor. Why? Among other reasons, 1080p doesn’t look very good on a 42” screen. Heck, it doesn’t even look that great on a 27-inch screen. That’s why there’s a new standard in town.

In a few years you’re going to see a lot of monitors on the market displaying at 2560×1440. There are already a number of 1440p monitors on the market, but they’re still really quite expensive. However, it looks like Dell is poised to launch one of the most affordable such monitors in the near future.

The U2713HM is a 27-inch LED-backlit AH-IPS panel with a resolution of 2560×1440. For inputs you’ll be able to choose from HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-D, and HDMI. You’ll also get a four port USB 3.0 hub built-in. The monitor is currently on sale in Japan for around 50,000 yen, which is about $640. There isn’t any word on when we will be seeing it in the US.

Of course, the price of this monitor is still pretty high when you compare it to the 1080p monitors on the market. Plus, if you’re willing to risk it, there are considerably cheaper 27-inch panels that you can get from Korea. We’ll be taking an in-depth look at those a little down the road.
