Major monitor maker Dell is refreshing their UltraSharp monitor line-up with a couple of new models including a 40″ curved 5K monitor. Aimed at creatives, the new Dell 40 UltraSharp 5K2K 40-inch U4021QW ultrawide goes on sale at the end of January for a poultry $2,100 USD.
In addition, according to Dell, their new 40-inch ultrawide is the world’s first curved monitor with (5120 x 2160) resolution or WUHD. And while the resolution is sort of 5K-ish (due to its ultra-wide design), the extra real-estate nonetheless will be put to good use. For example, when you are editing video, the extra-wide screen will give you much more room to re-arrange your Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, or DaVinci Resolve workspace.
Thunderbolt 3 Support and 100% sRGB Coverage
Pitched at content creators, filmmakers, photographers, and graphic designers, the U4021QW offers wide color coverage and excellent colour performance while helping to optimize eye comfort with ComfortView Plus.
And thanks to Thunderbolt 3 technology you can charge your PC with up to 90W power charging or use it as a connection to your Mac Mini 2020 M1 or MacBook Pro (or any Thunderbolt 3 Mac).
In addition, the new Dell 40 curved display supports HDMI 2.0 and Display Port 1.4, in addition to a bunch of USB 3.2 Gen2 ports with 10Gbps and USB-C quick access ports for charging your mobile phone for example. And of course, when it comes to color accuracy you can expect 100% sRGB and 98% DCI-P3 color space coverage.
The other new monitor of interest to video creators is the Dell UltraSharp 38″ Curved USB-C Hub Monitor (U3821DW) delivers an outstanding audio and video experience with vivid WQHD+ (3840 x 2160) 60Hz IPS LCD display (same technology as in the 40-inch curved) and integrated 9W speakers.
This model is expected to cost around $1499 USD and start shipping January 28, same as the 5K2K model above.
Dell currently sells a 37.5-inch UltraSharp U3818DW 4K display with the same 21:9 aspect ratio for those of you ultra-wide enthusiasts, which is currently priced at $999 and may be a more affordable alternative to Dell’s new offerings.
