Dell drops 28-inch 4k monitor at CES 2014 for $700

dell drops 28 inch 4k monitor ces 2014 700

4k TVs and content are all the rage these days, with show-goers, journalists and executives alike freaking out about the tech here at CES 2014. However, your living room isn’t the only room of the house that you can stuff with a 4k display. Dell announced a new 28-inch monitor at the show this week that includes 4k resolution, giving your eyes plenty to gawk at while you forget to wipe the drool off your chin.

Dubbed the P2815Q, Dell’s latest display features a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160, which is on par with the resolution offered on Dell’s UltraSharp 32 monitor, whose display is four inches larger, measuring 31.5-inches. The big difference between the two? Price. The UltraSharp 32, which was announced roughly a month ago, is currently retailing for $3,321.99 directly from the company’s website, after an initial price tag of $3,500. The P2815Q on the other hand costs an ultra low $699, less than 25 percent of the cost of the UltraSharp.

So what accounts for the extreme difference in price between the two considering that they both feature the same resolution? We have to believe that it can’t just be the four inch size difference. We reached out to Dell for comment and we’re currently waiting on word for them. 

As for other features, Dell’s site has yet to reveal other specs like response time, contrast ratio or brightness, but we do know that the P2815Q will include several ports like mini DisplayPort in, DisplayPort in, DisplayPort out, USB and more. We’ll update this if and when we get a response from Dell.

So, what do you think of a $700 price tag for a 28-inch monitor? Would you put down that much dough for a display? Why or why not? Sound off in the comments below.
