Korean monitors are a popular choice for the budget scene, but Wasabi Mango? That’s a pretty weird sounding brand. However, at under $200 (after coupons) for the Wasabi Mango QHD 277, a 27″ AH-IPS 2560 x 1440, multi-input monitor, it screams great value to me and I took the plunge.
The new Dell UltraSharp 25 Monitor (U2515H) sports a LG AH-IPS panel, features a 2560 x 1440 QHD resolution, and an ultra thin bezel to boot. It was discounted to as low as $529 at the recent Singapore IT Show 2015 from the original promotion price of $599. My friend bought one set and I had a quick hands on for initial impression.
The U2515H looks typical Dell, all business, in a traditional Dell black / silver combination. Sleek, professional – I like it.
Dell has managed to reduce the top and side outer bezel to only a 1mm edge, followed by a screen border of around 6.9mm. It sounds a lot, but a 7.9mm edge is still very thin, and if you are to use this is a multi-monitor setup, the thin bezels allow an inconspicuous seam when paired side by side with another U2515H.
