PC monitor manufacturers tend to focus on a particular buzzword or acronym almost every year. In the past, we have been treated to HD (high definition), denoting the screen is capable of running a minimum 720p resolution.

Date Issued: 15th May 2015

Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glorious This monitor lives up to expectations no problem. On a desk it looks vast; very nearly A2 @100%. My objective was to reduce the need to zoom in ACAD and revit which this achieves by thereabouts fitting a retail unit on screen at 1:50 which is a great scale to work on. You can see the pixels if you get extremely close. And be prepared for the brightness with colour matching on proper settings which is in no way relaxing for late night working; it practically illuminates the street. Lovely stand with smooth mechanism for adjustment and tidy cables. Neat marriage with the dell soundbar. Build is pleasingly solid. More than enough options for connectivity of both the monitor and peripherals vi the built in usb dock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Bad for the Price I did a lot of research into 4k hardware colour managed monitors before picking this device. The reviews were accurate in that it does have a couple of very minor downsides (but only if you are a total purist when it comes to colour accuracy). I bought the monitor to edit photographs and it provides acres of space for this. I paired it on my computer with my Eizo CG241W monitor and colour manage both. They are pretty accurately aligned with each other. An excellent monitor for a sensible price. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sharp monitor Use this for adjusting pictures in Photoshop. Once you conquer the font issues a hi-res screen presents, the monitor is a pure delight. Supporting 99 per cent of the Adobe RGB gamut is a real bonus

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so good. been waiting years for this I am a hobbyist photographer, I edit on an iMac (not the 5k one sadly) and now on this new screen. I used to have a pretty good ASUS screen from its day (2160x1440 27" I think) but this is night and day better. Colour is really better, more accurate, to be fair I had a bit of a red bias in the old ASUS and now and in this Dell feels like blues and greens are just richer somehow, but it is more than calibration, it is somehow the range and subtlety. I hesitate to think I can see a bigger colourspace and I am still working in sRGB anyway but it's what I'm thinking. It comes factory calibrated and tested with its own individual report for your Gamma, Delta E. If you really care you can individually calibrate it. I doubt I ever will. You can sit really close and not strain your eyes because of the high DPI, it's so big you have to turn your head to look in a corner when you are that close, but it allows you to really pixel-peek and view a decent high-res raw file at 1:1 and see the whole image. I have had no issues from the high DPI in terms of microscopic text appearing in Windows Apps, I run at 125% to 150% (recommended in Windows) and it is really like you are used to on a lower res screen. It is so good it makes me regret I didn't get the 4K capable Phantom Drone (I got Advanced not Professional) and I am so glad I got the GoPro that does 4K because since I got this screen I have got back into home movies and editing for the first time in years. Watching 4K Youtube clips of Costa Rica is just stunning, truly. I am seriously looking at 4K projector for upstairs home theatre now I have "seen the 4K light" in this monitor. I use a good PC (6700K) but only the stock Displayport output and a USB 3.0 - no graphics card, doesn't seem to matter at all. The card reader I think is slow, I have a Micro SD USB 3.0 adapter I plugged straight into my PC directly and got 125 to 135 Mbps, when I use an SD card adapter to connect via the monitor I think I was at 75 to 85 (not a scientific test but pretty sure it was slower). But having a USB hub is useful, I am putting a Creative Roar 2 under it for some sound soon and I can power it locally to the monitor via the USB so no mains cables. Why not 5/5 Value - just because of what is available that is so much cheaper. This is a lot better and it is way more as well. If it had G-Sync or Adaptive Sync, if it was prettier (it is fine but not fancy to look at) basically they could have done some gamer stuff too, then it would be everything to everybody and 5/5 Value. I give 5/5 for Overall because it is doing what I bought it to do to almost the highest possible standard, much better than even professional equipment of only a few years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent but at a price Pros: * Fantastic colour accuracy * Multi USB 3 ports are handy and outward facing port on rear is convenient * Side mounted SD card reader works well Cons: * USB ports are on the rear rather than the side, though this is minor as I leave all but one device plugged in and the one I frequently unplug (headset) I use the rear facing port * You have to choose your cables very carefully. I bought a 3m DP cable and it would only work [email protected] so back to using the supplied 2m cable. 3m DP [email protected] is difficult to achieve and I havent located a cable that's guaranteed to work * Monitor is sometimes not detected, even though its a primary on a two monitor set up. Have to switch on the monitor, let it start up then fire up the PC. Have had it not recover from sleep and refusing to come back on until PC is rebooted. Never had this with my twin Dell 2408+2407 monitor set up. A minor annoyance I'm willing to live with. * Some backlight bleed on totally black screen. Not an issue for everyday use * Wish it were 400 quid cheaper so I could buy a second.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This monitor is OK There is no DVI input which means I have been unable to use my second PC with it as it only has DVI. I thought some sort of adapter would work but not the ones I have recently bought. I was expecting to be amazed by the screen. But actually it is a bit shiny and dulls unless you look straight on (I guess the technical spec of 178 degrees must mean you can still see the screen from 178 degrees, not that is has the same quality as zero degrees). My 8-year-old Dell PLS monitor that this replaces actually had more visible impact. So I think it must be something to do with IPS technology. The image you see on the screen is as if there is a thin layer of silvery material on top of it slightly clouding the view. I like to listen to sound through PC speakers usually but late at night use the monitor soundbar so as not to disturb people. The soundbar only connects through USB which means using unreliable Windows sound settings to get it working with both PC speakers and the soundbar. These seem to regularly stop working which means a trip to control centre of Windows 10. My previous display soundbar used a phono connection that just always worked reliably. And it had an off switch which is lacking in this version of the soundbar. The USB connections are all around the back and inaccessible. I have bought 50cm USB extensions to bring the connections to within reach but this is inelegant and it would be much more useful if the ports were on the side of the monitor. Dell cannot say they did this to enable people to join multiple monitors together because they have put the memory card reader on the side. If you turn the screen off by the monitor power button, then the power to the USBs also goes. This means you cannot turn the monitor off if all you want to do is charge a phone or copy files to a backup external drive. So this is wasteful of energy. Also annoying touch controls on the screen. It is sad that buttons are still unfashionable. Screen runs quite cool which is good. You can turn the power button light to always off in the settings which is nice.

Is this monitor HDCP 2.2 compliant?

I'm having a devil of a job finding this out and from experience (as of August 2017) Netflix and other 4k/UHD streamers as well as 4K Blu-ray players require end-to -end HDCP 2.2 compliance. Your specs state the HDMI port is 2.0 which I've read elsewhere and Dell's own site states "Get extensive connectivity with a larger bandwidth. HDMI 2.0 allows 4K content to be transferred at 60Hz for uncompromising picture quality." but doesn't mention the HDCP 2.2 compliance needed. I would love to know if this is supported and if anyone has successfully got Netflix and/or 4k Blu-ray video playback at the full 4K spec. Thanks in advance. X
Asked by: MystorX
I've found out that is seems to be, from various sources, this one for instance: https://www.monitornerds.com/best-hdcp-compliant-monitors-for-4k-streaming/ but I still can't get Netflix to play at 4K for reasons I can't yet establish. My card, Windows 10's own HDCP test now all indicate Netflix should be displaying at max resolution but it still isn't - but at least I know I haven't wasted £1,054 on buying a non-compliant monitor.

Is it possible to purchase extended manufacturer warranty (5 years) on this website? Dell offers such warranty.

Asked by: jacekszlachta
Hello, We do not offer any extended warranty. You would have to speak with the manufacturer to discuss extended your warranty. Regards,
