Time to upgrade to 4K with the Dell S2721QS 27-inch 4K IPS ultra-thin monitor down to a low price of $349.99 through the Dell online store. Plus, this deal comes with a $100 promotional gift card. This monitor can sell for as much as $540 at Dell and other retailers (and is currently going for $520 at Newegg), but it more regularly sells for around $400. Either way you're saving a lot here today. Its best price ever was a drop to around $300, but that sale did not throw in anything extra. So if you include the $100 gift card in today's deal, this is a new low.
The $100 Dell gift card can only be spent at Dell.com. You will be emailed the code within 20 days of your purchase, and you have 90 days to use it before it expires. Spend it before it expires! Put it towards a second monitor or upgrade your audio instead. You can use it on anything in the Dell store, which includes a wide variety of products.
While we have seen better direct price drops in the past, they haven't been much better. And today's deal features an extra $100 gift card that really sells the deal. Plus who wouldn't want an upgrade to a 4K display at such an affordable price?
Dell's monitor has a pixel resolution of 3840 x 2160. That's so many pixels to squeeze into a 27-inch screen. You're going to get exceptional clairty and detail compared to 1080p or even 1440p. Watch all your favorite 4K content on this screen. It even supports HDR content for even better image.
The design includes three nearly bezel-less sides so it's super immersive. It has a subtle textured pattern on the back, too, for its own unique look. The whole thing is very sleek and modern with a blend of style and quality.
If you're using an AMD graphics card, you can make use of the AMD FreeSync technology to help reduce screen tearing. That's particularly important for high-octane moments like when playing video games. Of course, the monitor only has a 60Hz refresh rate (which is the trade-off for 4K resolution). While that's not ideal for gamers, especially if you like shooters like Call of Duty or Rogue Company, it's not terrible either. You'll definitely get some great detail out of the 4K. Still, I would think of this as a media monitor for watching shows and such or working on Photoshop rather than playing games.
Connectivity options include two HDMI ports and a DisplayPort. It also has an adjustable stand that can tilt, swivel, and pivot. Some on-screen features include Picture-in-Picture so you can take advantage of all that real estate and ComfortView that helps reduce harmful blue light emissions.
