Yet another entry into the growing list of curved monitors set to hit shelves this year, the Dell UltraSharp 34 aims to fulfill your widescreen desires while also providing the calibration features and ergonomic stand you’d expect from professional hardware.
Its resolution of 3,440 x 1,440 matches the concave competition, but achieves response times unlike anything we’ve seen on a screen this size. The UltraSharp has a response time of just eight milliseconds in normal mode, and drops down to five milliseconds in game mode.
Dell says we can expect the display to show 99 percent of the sRGB color gamut and a contrast ratio of 1000:1 thanks to its IPS, anti-glare LED panel.
The display is VESA-mount ready and will fit all standard mounting options including wall-based solutions and the included stand. That said, while sticking it to your stucco sounds good in theory, the monitor is a bit larger than most due to its curvaceous bod. This UltraSharp will measure 16 inches high, 32.5 inches across, and 8.5 inches deep, and will weigh slightly less than 20 pounds without cables or stand attached.
Connectivity includes a bevy of available input and outputs, including DisplayPort 1.2 in, a mini-DisplayPort, DisplayPort 1.2 out (for daisy-chaining displays), HDMI, MHL, two USB 3.0 in, four USB 3.0 out, and even an audio-line out if you need to plug in your headphones.
Dell will offer their Premium Panel Guarantee with every unit sold, meaning that if even one pixel is out of place by the time it shows up on your desk, the company will replace it 100% free of charge.
Expect the UltraSharp to go on sale before the end of CES, January 8th. The MSRP will be $1,199.
