Dell SE2717H: 27-inch 1080p IPS FreeSync Monitor


The new Dell SE2717H may not look like a unique Dell monitor as it looks very similar to other newer Dell monitors, but if you look at the inside, it is quite different. Well, back to the outside, the SE2717H features some thin bezels and a nice, sleek stand. The OSD buttons are featured below the lower bezel, so they will be distracting. Taking a look at ergonomics, the stand only offers tilt function. No VESA support either.

On the inside, the monitor features some great specifications as well. The Dell SE2717H is a flat 27-inch monitor with a 1080p resolution. Now, this might now be optimal for many people, as they prefer at least 1440p (WQHD) at this size, and frankly, we do too. The panel type is IPS, also known as In-Plane Switching. This panel type will give you optimal color accuracy and viewing angles. A 1000:1 contrast ratio is also specified, which is common for IPS panels these days. Looking at color depth, 8-bit colors are supported, which is gained by true 6-bit and FRC. Viewing angles are 178 degrees vertical and horizontal.

The refresh rate of this monitor is variable, as in it supports AMD FreeSync technology. This means that if you have a FreeSync-supported GPU from AMD, you can enjoy a variable refresh rate of 48Hz-75Hz. This is also known to as Adaptive Sync. Without FreeSync enabled, you will most likely only be able to use a static 60Hz refresh rate. Response time is specified as 6ms, which is a bit slower than other newer IPS panels (4ms). The backlight is WLED and flicker-free and connection options only include HDMI 1.4a and VGA.

All in all, this will be a very cheap 27-inch monitor and will cost around 250 USD when released. You can see the most relevant specs outlined in the table just below.
