[Dell] P2721Q 27" 4K USB-C Monitor $500

Just got this monitor for myself. Total deal is as follows:

609.99 - 10% = 548.99 (Coupon 10%OFFMONITOR)
8% Rakuten Cashback - 48.80
Final Price $500.19 + Taxes

I would say decent deal for a decent 4K USB-C monitor.

Warning: Long lead time for the monitor. Shows date of delivery in December.

If you have an Amex with the Dell 10% back offer, you should be able to stack that one as well. You'll get it back as a statement credit.

If USB-C is not top priority and your budget is around $600 and want a very colour accurate 4k 27" monitor, then BenQ PD2700U is a better option. Link

Actually USB-C is a top priority for me, wherein colour accuracy is not.

I don't understand... An HDMI to USB c cable is only $10 or so .. why pay a premium for a USBC monitor?

Many advantages for laptop users

"USB-C monitors are a fast-growing market because you get high resolution, high-speed Data transfer, and charging abilities all from one cable. Most USB-C monitors also work as docking stations because they come with multiple ports, which frees up space in your work area."

Me neither. I would prefer to have a TB hub/dock separate from the monitor. And when 240w PD is out, I'll just upgrade the TB hub. Yes, more cables...but I'm cool with doing some cable management.

Seems a bit much for a 60hz monitor

I am planning to use this as second monitor for my Mac Mini M1 and my Dell laptop. My wife also has a MacBook Air, which will be occasionally used with this monitor. Now, except the Dell laptop, all others are severely I/O limited. So in order to buy something for common use, I need to buy a USB hub, with PD and 4k@60 Hz. The bare minimum of which is this apple adapter. Yet, this doesn't produce enough expansion options. Also, I'm a bit scared to put cheap PD options in MacBook, as they have a track record of being burnt by inexpensive PD devices. In short the external dongle solutions are cluttered, but not cheap when you have to accommodate all your requirements. That's why I went for this monitor. I know this is not the cheapest monitor on market. But, for my use case it made perfect sense. Also my office paying up to 500 for the home office setup didn't hurt either :).

Which one are you talking about? U2720Q? I have never seen that below 500. Or you are talking about some other UltraSharps without USB-C? In that case, I don't think they are comparable.

Also it looks like the U2720Q is missing form the site? might be discontinued.

USB-C monitors help reduce the number of cables/bricks. People don't want the notebook power adapter but your TB dock adds it back.

Most people just need to connect a wireless mouse or keyboard to their monitor.

Because it's also a USB hub. A single cable brings power, video, and most USB peripherals.

Some other contenders in this price category: LG 27UN850 (was $449 recently on Amazon) and the Philips 279P1 (also around $450 on Amazon, with usual spikes up). The Philips has the advantage of also having an RJ45 network connection and two USB plugs conveniently located on the side of the monitor.
