This review is from: Dell UltraSharp UP2715K 27' LED LCD Monitor - 16:9 - 8 ms
Pros: Running this display at 5120x2880 using a Radeon R9 295X2. Very nice display during the 10-15 minutes it works between power cycles.
Cons: After a minute or two, all the side buttons become unresponsive. You can no longer power off the monitor, bring up the on-screen menu, or change any settings.
At this time, running the Dell Display Manager produces an error stating "This program requires a supported Dell monitor ... If you believe your system meets these requirements, try power cycling the monitor.
After 5-10 more minutes, the display goes black. The *only* way to get it operational again is to pull the AC power plug. Wait a few minutes, and plug the monitor back into power and let it reboot.
After this, the Dell Display Manager works (again) and the power and settings buttons work again. But in 5-10 minutes, the cycle repeats.
Other Thoughts: I have the monitor configured to *not* go into power save mode but that makes no difference. I will be returning this monitor. If it worked, I'd love it. But it simply doesn't work.
Dell moderates posts to their support forum and, so far, have not allowed my post on this issue to appear.
Pros: When it worked, everything was fine.
Cons: Drive failed 60 days after I received it. Newegg won't accept a return because it was more than 30 days. Seagate insists the serial number isn't valid, even though I use the serial number displays by their own Seatools utility (which tool also confirms the drive failure with an obscure error code - 97E19AEB). As a result, I cannot get a warranty repair from Seagate either.READ FULL REVIEW
