Dell Announces Ultrathin S2719DC LCD: FreeSync USB-C with HDR600by Anton Shilov on August 29, 2018 1:15 AM EST
Dell has introduced its new Ultrathin 27-inch display that features a USB Type-C interface for modern PCs. The S2719DC is aimed primarily at space-constrained business environments, but in addition to being thin and featuring a modern interconnection, the new monitor also carries VESA’s DisplayHDR 600 badge, supports AMD’s FreeSync, and covers 90% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, three important features for multimedia enthusiasts.
General specifications of Dell’s Ultrathin S2719DC are pretty regular for a 27-inch display. The LCD is based on an 8-bit IPS panel with a 2560×1440 resolution, a 400/600 nits brightness (typical/peak), a 1000:1 contrast ratio, a 60 Hz refresh rate (with FreeSync), a 5 – 8 ms response time, and 178°/178° viewing angles. The monitor can display over 99% of the sRGB color gamut as well as 90% of the DCI-P3 palette, which is not typical for office displays. Besides, it also features VESA’s DisplayHDR 600 certificate and therefore can properly display HDR content with up to 600-nits peak brightness.
As far as connectivity is concerned, the Ultrathin S2719DC has one HDMI 2.0 and one USB Type-C input supporting DP-over-USB-C alt mode. In addition, the monitor has a dual-port USB 3.0 hub, and a 3.5-mm audio connector for headphones.

The main selling point of the Dell Ultrathin S2719DC monitor is its combination of extremely thin profile of 5.5 – 29 mm with DisplayHDR 600 label and a USB Type-C interface. At present, there are ultra-thin displays, there are LCDs that carry DisplayHDR 600 badge, and there are monitors that connect to hosts using a USB-C cable. Meanwhile Dell has managed to bring all three features together in a single product that can address a broad spectrum of customers.
Dell’s Ultrathin S2719DC display will be available from select retailers in the U.S. starting today at an MSRP of $549.99.
