Buy a refurbished DELL UltraSharp U2718Q 27 inch IPS display in very good condition
Deciding for a new screen can be quite difficult, as a screen is not switched every second year as it is often done with other computer related hardware. Screens can be used for years and years, as they are barely moved a centimeter and as their product life cycle is quite slow, especially when compared to laptops, desktop computers and especially phones. These properties also have another very good aspect: Buying a used screen that is less of a burden on the budget doesn’t necessarily mean that the hardware is old and recently or soon outdated. That way, one or more screens can be bought for the fraction of the price compared with newer models.
Nonetheless, displays do differ in quality and capabilities a lot. The here offered Dell Ultrasharp U2718Q offers the best components and properties for a superb office experience. The 16:9 aspect ratio with a UHD resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels is perfect for fitting two office windows beside each other. The anti-glare display has a brightness of 350 cd/m² and a viewing angle of amazing 178° from both directions, so that working together with colleagues becomes effortless. The contrast is 1300:1 and the response time is 5ms. The screen further offers manifold positioning options, increasing the physiological ergonomics; there is a function for pivoting, tilting, height adjustment and swiveling. Last but not least: The U2718Q offers numerous plugs and video inputs.
