Dell UltraSharp UP2715K Review – UHD at 5k

While there are many displays that are aiming to reach the 4K resolution mark, the Dell UltraSharp UP2715K is among the view that boasts 5K pixel resolution. It packs a more than amazing 5,120 x 2,880 pixel resolution, has 99-percent AdobeRGB color coverage, and has other features that makes this perhaps the ultimate monitor for professional photographers and videographers everywhere.

Dell UltraSharp UP2715K Review - UHD at 5k

Enjoy 5K Resolution With the Dell UltraSharp UP2715K

Even though the Dell UltraSharp UP2715K does boast 5K resolution, there is a catch right off the bat – Windows does not sometimes cope up with this high resolution. Furthermore, there’s also not enough content at the moment that sports such a high resolution, so lower resolution images might be upscaled to a bring about a nasty picture. This can be apparent when watching films, but not so much when viewing photos.

But if your rig has the capacity to cope up with the 5K resolution, then you are in for a massive treat. It has a premium look that is achieved by both the stand and the rim of the monitor. These components are finished in brushed aluminum, and the rear is equally as luxurious as it is finished in a matte-black plastic. Speaking of its rear, it curves gently, like that of an iMac, but it does not have such a fine edge unlike Apple’s offering.

It has an overall neat look with its minimalistic preferences in design. It is completed by creating an impression that there are no bezels. Furthermore, there is a removable plastic section which covers up the ports. Hence, you can easily plug in your devices, remove them after use, then neatly close the ports up to bring back the tidy design.

One of the questions being asked is how does the 5K resolution fare in a 27-inch screen? The answer to that inquiry is that it can perform very well. If you use Windows’ scaling option, you can simply double the size of just about everything. Programs and interface have no problem with the upscaling, but once again, smaller resolution films may promote pixelation. But aside from that, image quality is beyond excellent and colors have a nice “pop” to them as well.

Overall, the Dell UltraSharp UP2715K is indeed placed in one of the priciest points you can imagine for a professional-grade monitor. However, almost everything about it justifies its high price tag. Therefore, if you have the money to burn, and want to upgrade your monitor to a UHD one, then you might want to check this particular display out.
