It may not be an UltraSharp, but we're not complaining for $199. This is a deal worth considering as the monitor checks off a lot features not found on most other displays in this price range.

Dell appears to be clearing stock on one of its narrow-bezel monitors for $120 USD off the original asking price. If you're in the market for a new display, then this is definitely worth a look due to the large size and extensive features for such a low asking price.

The Dell S2721D isn't a budget monitor based on its specifications. Whereas many other 27-inch monitor sales are often limited to a native resolution of 1080p, the S2721D has a native resolution of 1440p for a denser PPI. Not only that, but it has a maximum refresh rate of 75 Hz instead of the usual 60 Hz and with AMD FreeSync built in. Combine these with the fast 4 ms to 8 ms gray-to-gray response times and you have a monitor that can work very well for both office work and fast-paced games.

The biggest drawback to the monitor is that its stand is not adjustable meaning the monitor will always be at a fixed height from the table. Luckily, VESA mounting is supported and the stand can be removed. Keep in mind that the color space of the S2721D  covers "only" 99 percent of sRGB meaning professionals or creators who rely on full AdobeRGB coverage may want to skip this deal.
