Dell's UltraSharp 27-inch monitor with USB hub has dropped to $270

Dell's U2717D UltraSharp 27-inch monitor (opens in new tab) has dropped to $269.99 through the Dell website. This price is a match for one we saw a few weeks ago and one of its lowest ever. The next best price is $280 at Costco, but you need to be a member to get that price and it comes with $10 shipping. Many retailers sell it for $300 or more.

Not a monitor for gamers. This screen looks great if your primary focus is on media watching and working. Has a wide-angle IPS panel with 1440p resolutions and a 60 Hz refresh rate. It is wall mountable with bezel-less sides.

The specifications for this monitor include a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, 60Hz refresh rate, and an 8 ms response time. That last stat makes this monitor not so great for gamers, but if you're not interested in that then this can still be a great display for people looking to watch media and do some work. Especially if you need a larger screen with a good resolution that doesn't cost a fortune. Plus, the IPS panel means you get fantastic color accuracy and 178-degree viewing angles so you can see the screen from any angle and watch any sort of media without losing track of it.

The screen's connection optioons give it a lot of versatility in terms of what you can use it for. It has an HDMI 1.4 port, a Display 1.2 port, a mini DisplayPort, and four USB 3.0 ports. You can connect all your peripherals, add a second monitor to your laptop, and more.

The stand is fully adjustable. Pivot, tilt, and swivel your screen to find the perfect viewing angle. It also has a 100mm x 100mm VESA standard so you can mount it to your wall or an arm mount. Dell's InfinityEdge means three out of the four sides have virtually no bezel at all, so you get fully immersed into what you're watching. Plus that makes this screen great for multi-monitor setups.

Dell's UltraSharp lineup is covered by the Dell Premium Panel Gaurantee, too. That's one of the best pixel policies among retailers and promises you won't have to settle for a dead or bright pixel in the middle of your screen.
