General info

1.supports total tilt
Dell UltraSharp UP2715K
LG 27MD5K 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.Has a swivel stand
Dell UltraSharp UP2715K
LG 27MD5K 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.
3.height

384.6mm

375.2mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.width

637.3mm

625.6mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.thickness

47.9mm

239.8mm

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.
6.Supports VESA mount
Dell UltraSharp UP2715K
LG 27MD5K 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

8ms

12ms

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

5120 x 2880px

5120 x 2880px

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

218ppi

217ppi

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
Dell UltraSharp UP2715K
LG 27MD5K 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
Dell UltraSharp UP2715K
LG 27MD5K 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.

Colors

1.brightness

350nits

A nit is a measurement of the light that a display emits, equal to one candela per square meter. Brighter displays ensure a screen's contents are easy to read, even in sunny conditions.
2.contrast ratio

1000:1

1200:1

Contrast ratio is the visual distance between the lightest and the darkest colors that may be reproduced on the display. A high contrast ratio is desired, resulting in richer dark colors and more distinctive color gradation.
3.has an ambient light sensor
