Dell reveals first AH-IPS monitor - Dell U2713HM


Dell Monitor

Dell has revealed its first AH-IPS monitor in the shape of the 27-inch U2713HM. It becomes one of only a few manufacturers to produce such a high-end display.

Of course, you might expect such high-end feats from one of the largest PC vendors in the world.

Still, the Dell U2713HM looks impressive. It utilises a 27-inch AH-IPS panel, which stands for Advanced High Performance In Plane Switching.

This seemingly random jumble of words should mean ridiculously good viewing angles - as much as 178 degrees. Now when everyone crowds around to see that ‘hilarious’ YouTube clip of a dog dancing, they’ll be able to see just fine.

AH-IPS also apparently means faster response times (good for games) and superior brightness efficiency.

The U2712HM’s screen should also be super-sharp, with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 (WQHD) - well up on the standard 1920x1080 standard we’re used to seeing. Despite these impressive specs, the U2713HM will apparently use 37 per cent less power than the previous 27-inch Dell model.

Connectivity looks good, with a four-port USB 3.0 hub embedded, as wells as HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-D and VGA.

The Dell U2713HM is only available in Japan at present, and it’ll set customers back a whopping 49,980 yen - that’s £408 if we do a straight currency conversion. Still, it looks like things are finally moving on in the world of PC monitors.

It seems imported Korean S-IPS models are the flavour of the month for 27" displays, at least on US Tech web-sites.

Do a search for 27" Shimian monitors on eBay and you can get one for under £200. Even with import tax added, that's not a bad price for a 27" IPS monitor.

The downsides seem to be lack of advanced picture controls and only one dual-link DVI input. Plus the uncertainty over whether it will reach you from South Korea.

For those wanting more information, The TechReport has a good
article on these monitors:

After searching the net and reading the reviews about various LED monitors of 27" and from BENQ, SAMSUNG, DELL, HP and other brands I ordered DELL U2713HM on 07.11.2012 which is expected to be delivered to me by next week and would write my comments. Hope that I have not done any mistake in selecting the DELL 27" monitor
