Dell UltraSharp UP2716D
Dell does not include any accessories with their UP2716D, but this model is clearly less expensive than those of Benq and Eizo, while it does offer the possibility of hardware calibration. This monitor has two hdmi-inputs and two displayport-inputs, and is the only monitor that has a displayport-output for daisy-chaining to a second monitor. Dell also included a double usb 3.0 hub, with two upstream connectors. Because of this you can use it with two connected systems and operate both using the same mouse and keyboard. A total of four host-connectors are available - two on the back and two on the left. A memory card reader is absent: previously Dell would include this, but for this model they probably did not deem it necessary.
Looking at the overall test results in standard mode we notice that the maximum brightness is rather modest at 218 cd/m², which means that the contrast is slightly lower compared with Benq and Eizo. In practice this is still more than sufficient. Very positive is the uniformity of both black and white; this models performs the best in this regard compared with the other models in the test. With a measured gamut-coverage of 97% in AdobeRGB, the UP2716D is one of the best models in the test in this mode. The average colour- and grayscale deviation are very low with 2.08 and 2.9 respectively, but in this test it results in 'only' third place. Calbirated on the native colour space the monitor shows 99.9% coverage of AdobeRGB, but is slightly higher in terms of colour deviation while the grayscale deviation is clearly lower. The standard deviation of the sub measurements of the colours is slightly higher at 1.9. The colour temperature ends up at a good 6649 K and the gamma at 2.14. The contrast is better in every 'colour' mode than in the standard mode: well above 1000:1 every time.
