Lives up to the UltraSharp name! I upgraded to this 2 years after release, but considering I was upgrading from a 2007WFP (great monitor in 2006), it was a pretty big step up. From what I understand, the 2715H is basically the same as the 2717D, maybe some USB ports are located differently and the interface is different. My primary use is DAWs, and this monitor gives me the resolution and real estate needed to lay everything out in front of me beautifully. I am 100% happy with this purchase. When choosing a monitor, I'd suggest looking at the youtube reviews of this so you can really see what you're getting into. Honestly, you can't go wrong with a Dell UltraSharp! They have never disappointed, and my old 20" lasted me 11 years!
A few caveats: 1 - UNLESS YOUR DEVICE HAS A MINI-DP PORT ON IT, BUY A FULL-SIZE DP CABLE! This monitor does come with a DisplayPort-to-miniDisplayPort cable (not sure why that one is the standard monitor cable). My video card only has HDMI and full size Display Ports on it, so I plugged the full size DP plug into my video card, and mini-DP into the monitor. It at first wouldn't recognize the mini-DP cable. I pushed it in further and it finally worked, but then, the frequent blackouts noted in other reviews ensued. I ended up running out to pick up a full size DP cable.
2 - USB PORTS ARE ALL ON THE BACK! I didn't realize this until I ordered, but it didn't make a huge deal to me. My old ultrasharp had 2 USBs on the port console in the back, and then 2 on the side (very convenient). This has 3 USBs close together and a 4th spaced by itself on the display port console in the back, and then a 5th mounted on the back side of the monitor (has battery charging power for your phone, nifty!). I would have preferred them on the side, but it's cool. But earlier might have made me decide between this and another monitor.
3 - Predates HDR - this monitor will not use the HDR effect offered in Windows 10, or new VIDEO card options. It's still a beautiful display, I honestly don't know what I'm missing, but if you are looking for that option, it's not included in this display.

A crisp and thin matt finish 2K monitor. Haven't found out yet how it can auto detect/switch input sources. Maybe it cannot. Switching the sources using the front panel touch buttons can get annoying.

Great monitors and especially handy if you can get two of them because the bezel is very small. Paired with Amazon basics monitor arms, you can really position these things anywhere. Colours are perfect and zero bleed or pixel issues. Still a bit pricey considering the quality of some other g-sync/4k monitors but these are really business class devices and real work horses.
