In this comparison of 5K monitors, we compared the Dell 27 UltraSharp UP2715K and LG UltraFine 5K. Both monitors have ultra-high resolution, excellent color accuracy and a wide range of customization options, but only one can win.
ComparisonLG Ultrafein vs. Della Ultra sharp
1. Dell 27 UltraSharp UP2715K
The UP2715K continues the path taken by the former UltraSharp monitors. It is equipped with a sophisticated support that allows it to tilt, turn and adjust in height. The monitor is equipped with two DisplayPort (for 5K support), Mini DisplayPort (for 4K support), two USB 3.0 uplink ports, four USB 3.0 uplink ports and a card reader for multimedia card display.
Two Harman Kardon subspeakers are integrated into the monitor. A pair of speakers together can produce an impressive 32W (2 x 16W), and their sound is surprisingly refined and rich – much more than a typical built-in monitor speaker.
The UP2715K is designed for professional users who need excellent color accuracy and even backlight when editing photos and videos. Of course, the UP2715K does not disappoint in this respect, as it covers 99% of the AdobeRGB colour spectrum and 100% of the sRGB colour spectrum thanks to its powerful 12-bit internal processing that produces up to 1.07 billion colours and a high level of detail even in dark areas.
If you want to further improve the color accuracy of the UP2715K, you can purchase the X-Rite i1Display Pro and use it to adjust the colors on screen with Dell UltraSharp Color Calibration Solution software.
As a professional monitor with ultra-high resolution and best-in-class adaptability, you shouldn’t be surprised to hear that it costs quite a bit. We believe that the price for a monitor of this calibre is fair, but only you can know whether or not you benefit from it.

2. LG ultra fine 5K
Half the price of the Dell 27 UltraSharp UP2715K, this LG 5K monitor is designed for Mac users looking for an ultra-high resolution display for everything from media consumption and office work to photo and video editing.
But just because the display is designed for Mac users doesn’t mean you can’t use it with a PC. The LG UltraFine 5K has three USB-C (5 Gbps) downlink ports and comes with a Thunderbolt 3 cable that supports simultaneous transfer of video, audio and 5K data. If you do not have a graphics card with a USB-C port, you can always get an adapter and convert the included Thunderbolt 3 cable so that it can be used in any available port.
The built-in LG UltraFine 5K speakers are not as advanced as the Dell 27 UltraSharp UP2715K, and LG compensates for this with its built-in webcam. Although the webcam is not suitable for live streamers and YouTubers, its quality is more than sufficient for video conferencing and simple recordings.
But the most important selling point of the LG UltraFine 5K is the beautiful 27-inch panel with an amazing resolution of 5120 x 2880, a wide range of P3 colours and a brightness of 500 cd/m². Compared to a conventional 4K UHD monitor, the LG UltraFine has 5K 77% more pixels per inch and image quality is as good as Apple’s retina and other professional monitors.

LG UltraFine vs. Dell UltraSharpComparative Opinion
LG’s offer is hard to ignore, given that the UltraFine 5K UltraFine costs half the price of the Dell 27 UltraSharp UP2715K, but offers an equally interesting set of features and capabilities. If you’re not a professional graphic designer or someone who wants the best color accuracy, we think the UltraFine 5K will be a bigger bang for your buck.
