Hello
I'm considering to buy a Mac Studio and I would like to continue using my DELL U2713HM, will I be able to connect it and have the maximum resolution (2560 x 1440)?

Yes.

I have a U2720Q, 2 U2718Q and a U2515HM on my Studio. I have no reason to believe that your 2 years earlier model won't work just as well as my 2K monitor.

Hi, how did you connect them? did you use HDMI/DVI adapters or what?

The U2720Q is connected by a USB-C cable. One of the U2718Qs is connected via HDMI and the other is connected via a USB-C to DisplayPort cable. The U2515H is connected via USB-C to DisplayPort cable as well.

None of these monitors have DVI cables as I don't think that DVI supports QHD.

Be aware that MacOS looks prettier in high dpi displays. There were a lot of posts in M1 era regarding fonts looking blurry in non-4k-displays.

Take a look in some of old posts in Studio's and Mini's forums.
