REVIEW: Dell 2709W Part 7
According to Dell, the maximum viewing angle is 178 degrees horizontal and 178 degrees vertical. This is absolutely sufficient for all application purposes. Together with the rotation function, the tilting function and the height adjustment, the 2709W can be adjusted perfectly to the user’s own needs.
The images below show the monitor’s performance at different viewing angles. Thanks to the S-PVA panel used, the performance is good overall. The 2709W does not let down its guard and makes a very good impression in every respect.
The left image shows the frontal view and the right picture shows the viewing angle from the left.
The picture above shows the viewing angle from below and the picture below shows the viewing angle from above.
We then tested the colour accuracy of the DELL 2709W and examined how well the LCD monitor could be calibrated. The results are mainly of interest for graphics and photo editing. For office use and games, they are largely negligible, since the subjective impression is more important for these areas.
Next, we measured the maximum colour space of the LCD monitor and compared it on one hand with the ISO Coated colour space and on the other, with the sRGB, AdobeRGB and ECI-RGB 2.0 colour spaces.
sRGB is the lowest common denominator for the interaction of various input and output devices in the consumer area. In addition, Windows assumes sRGB in cases where colour profile is present for a device or graphics file.
Many colour printers work on normal paper with the sRGB profile. For this reason, too, the sRGB colour space is significant for "normal users" in contrast to the ISO Coated printing colour space. Because of the considerable spread of digital mirror reflex cameras and increases in amateur photography, photo services have also switched many of their exposure machines to the sRGB colour space in order to spare the customer contact with special colour spaces.
The comparison of the ISO Coated colour space used in offset printing with that of the monitor is interesting because this generally represents the least that current inkjet printers can manage. Many modern inkjet printers and printing processes also cover a larger area. The ISO Coated colour space is covered 100 percent by the Dell 2709w.
ISO Coated: 100 % coverage

We also measured how well the DELL 2709W covered various colour spaces. The sRGB coverage is important for normal users. On the other hand, AdobeRGB is of interest for graphics workers and photographers, as is the ECI-RGB 2.0 colour space. Since the Dell 2709w has an extended colour space, it should perform well where AdobeRGB and ECI-RGB 2.0 are concerned.
Explanation of 3D views
The black grid represents the respective standard colour space and the white grid represents the monitor’s colour space. The actual intersection of both colour spaces is represented by the coloured cube. Where the black grid protrudes beyond the cube, the monitor’s colour space can no longer display the standard colour space. Where the monitor’s colour space is larger than the respective standard colour space, the white grid protrudes beyond the cube.
