General info

1.supports total tilt
Apple Thunderbolt Display
Dell UltraSharp UP2716D 27"
Total tilt adjustment is the ability for the monitor head to move up and down. Tilt adjustment enables a user to change the viewing position of the display, creating a more comfortable view of the screen.
2.height

491mm

363.2mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
3.Has a swivel stand
Apple Thunderbolt Display
Dell UltraSharp UP2716D 27"
A swivel stand allows you to adjust the position of the display left or right, so you can position it to the desired angle.
4.thickness

207mm

200.7mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
5.width

650mm

612.1mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.Supports VESA mount
Apple Thunderbolt Display
Dell UltraSharp UP2716D 27"
The VESA mount is a standard used by most manufacturers. A device that supports the VESA mount can be mounted on many different supports, from arms to wall mounts.

Display

1.response time

12ms

6ms

Response time is how long it takes for a display to change the state of pixels, in order to show new content. The less time it takes to respond, the less likely it is to blur fast-changing images.
2.resolution

2560 x 1440px

2560 x 1440px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
3.screen size

27"

27"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.pixel density

109ppi

108ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
5.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Apple Thunderbolt Display
Dell UltraSharp UP2716D 27"
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
6.has an IPS screen
Apple Thunderbolt Display
Dell UltraSharp UP2716D 27"
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
