REVIEW: Dell 2709W
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
The American company Dell, with its headquarters in Texas, is certainly a concept know to everyone. As a manufacturer of PC systems, laptops, servers, monitors and external devices, Dell is currently the world’s second largest PC manufacturer. Now, Dell intends to become more and more involved in the entertainment electronics market.
he test of the Dell 2709w monitor should show how well the model performs in the PC sector, but also in the area of multi-media use. The model comes with DVI, HDMI, Display Port and Composite connectors and also contains a 9-in-2 card reader.
We used an ASUS GeForce 8600 GTS, the DTP94 Colorimeter from Quato and the related iColor Display software in Version 3.0.4 for our test. Where other tools were used, this is indicated in the text of the review.
The packaging of the monitor is typical for Dell: standard brown with a large company logo printed on it. Because of the size of the monitor, the package is rather heavy, so you should ensure you will only have to carry it for short distances.
Accessories for the Dell 2709W
As well as the utensils in the above picture (VGA cable, DVI-D cable, USB cable, Display-port cable, Setup poster, driver CD, user guide) the monitor is also contained in the box and is already assembled. Once it is unpacked, it can be connected directly with the cables and used straight away.
The driver CD contains the monitor profile (*.icm), the driver data (*.inf) and the Setup poster and user guide in HTML format. When the monitor driver is being installed, the colour profile is automatically connected as standard and it is difficult to remove it again. It is simplest to copy the profile (2709w.icm) from the folder "C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\color" and then load the required sRGB or AdobeRGB profile via the image properties.
