    4.00 / 5

Pros

  • Excellent image quality with easy to access inputs.

Cons

  • Very expensive

Bottom Line

Despite all of the display's notable qualities, $1999 is still a fairly high price to pay. Nevertheless, for people who crave a monitor with great image quality, useful extra ports, and a sleek design, the Dell 2707WFP can't be beat.

Would you buy this?

This attractive but expensive 27-inch display provides excellent image quality.

The Dell UltraSharp 2707WFP, a 27-inch wide-screen LCD monitor, is a stunner. It delivers great image quality, features a thoughtful design, and has several useful and unusual inputs but at $1999, it's pricey.

You do get a lot for the investment. The monitor's generous 1920 by 1200 resolution makes it great for viewing text or spreadsheet documents side by side. Text in a Microsoft Word document looked extremely sharp and photos showed bright colours and excellent detail, even in shadows. One useful extra: The 2707WFP includes individual red, green, and blue colour adjustments, allowing you to tune colours more finely when necessary.

Several other features also help set the 2707WFP apart. On its left side are two media card slots that can read nine different formats. On the back, all of the connections are both labelled and identified with pictures, so you don't have to hunt to find the right input. Along with DVI, S-Video-in, and composite-in ports, the monitor has a component-in connection, which is fairly unusual for an LCD model; it's convenient, especially for directly connecting the monitor to a cable box for viewing television (albeit via an analogue, not digital, connection). Also, because the display offers picture-in-picture, you can view TV while getting some work done.

The 2707WFP has a pretty design, with a brushed-silver bezel and a shiny black stand. It also adjusts nicely: The attached, simple-to-manoeuvre silver arm allows you to tilt or swivel the screen with ease.

Despite all of the display's notable qualities, $1999 is still a fairly high price to pay. Nevertheless, for people who crave a monitor with great image quality, useful extra ports, and a sleek design, the Dell 2707WFP can't be beat.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
