What customers say about "Features"
Dell U2718Q IPS Monitor
  • The Dell stand is much more flexible, even allowing for vertical orientation which is great when doing page layout work, especially posters.
  • The stand is height, tilt, swivel, and pivot adjustable.
  • Monitor is really beautifully designed with ultra thin bezels and a premium fit/ finish
  • It's the only (affordable) monitor with HDR support.
  • Adjustable height, tilt, and rotation via Pivot feature.
LG 27UK850 4K UHD HDR IPS Monitor
  • The stand is very nice and feels like a quality product.
  • Stand has a smooth height adjustment and can rotate to portrait.
  • The sound system seemed fine, but I rarely use the speaker system.
  • Speaker gets the job done, but don't expect anything hifi.
  • It's a little frustrating to have to adjust the brightness for room conditions and the quality of the plastic is certainly at the lower end.
