Dell Begins Selling the 30" Ultrasharp UP3017Q - 4K, OLED, $3500

Here it is. The OLED monitor to beat all others. Sate your image quality needs with the new, $3500, 4K OLED monitor from Dell. Its 30" displays a 3840 x 2160 resolution, and presents a response time of just 0.1ms at a 60 Hz refresh rate - with no support for Freesync, sadly. It can 1.07 billion colors (Anandtech assumes it's probably a 10-bit presentation), and covers 100% of the Adobe RGB color space, 97.8% of the DCI-P3 color space (which is expected to be adopted in home movies and cinema in the future), as well as 85.8% coverage of Rec2020. Dell declares a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, which is basically only truly achievable on OLED displays, due to their ability to turn off individual pixels.

When it comes to inputs, the Dell Ultrasharp UP3017Q features 1x mini-DisplayPort 1.2 connector,1x HDMI 2.0 port, and 1x USB type-C port, which is compatible with video and data connectivity as well as power delivery up to 100W. The monitor's stand supports Tilt (5~21°), Pivot (+90°, -90°), and Height (100 mm) adjustments. AnandTech reports that Dell has implemented a special pixel-shifting technology to try and inhibit the possibility of static image burn-in, which is one of the drawbacks of this panel technology, and perhaps one of the reasons its transition towards a desktop environment wasn't made sooner. What do you think of this? Are you looking forward to having an OLED monitor in front of you, or would you prefer to keep high-frequency monitors?

Give it a year or so. Nothing is stopping OLED from high refresh rates (technically could say it's 60,000Hz ready..) With DP 1.4, UHD @ 240Hz will be possible.

Hopefully the pixel-shifting tech is the real deal that will allow other OEMs to launch into the OLED desktop market.

But I leave my monitor on a lot. It'll burn out (and unevenly) :( Good thing there's no temptation to buy em with shitty refresh and no freesync.

Damn you, beautiful OLED.

This is a missed opportunity for advertisers to subsidize OLED to customers through a burn-in advertising campaign.

Oh and the monitor comes with a sensor and decides when it should turn-off
an image sensor that can tell whether or not you're viewing the monitor and turns it off when it's not in use.
Makes for hilarity if it malfunctions

Game pwnage/fapping in-progress and it shuts-off. :laugh:

Ohh come on, LCD is much worse from dead /stack pixels, black light bleeding and dead LED.

And i had it all .

Now i own LG monitor for over 1200$ with burned pixels and black light bleeding, i had Samsung TV after few years LED just died.

+ LG V20 phone with black light bleeding.

OLED are only immune to backlight issues.

When they're out there for $1,000, I'm buying one. And they will be in another year. My first LCD display was a DELL 2405FP from 2005, cost around $800, still kicking!

Once you go OLED, you can never go back. My Samsung tablet with AMOLED+ screen has the best image I have ever experienced. Is light years from any LCD out there and at least 10x times better than top CRT displays.
Really, the image is that good.
I would love to have a 34-incher, 3440x1440@144Hz curved display with this tech. Hell yeah!

Is this the monitor they were supposed to release a year ago? I had it in my head it had a higher refresh rate, or maybe it was simply because it was OLED that I took interest, I cant remember for sure now.

Either way, nice. Im not fully sold tho, I guess if my next monitor lasts anything like my current one has, I do want more than 60Hz and preferably some sort of variable refresh tech, oh and HDR - for the same reason.

No shit, i come from an iPad with retina display to a Samsung Tab S2 8" with the Super Amoled screen and there simply is no contest between the 2. The Samsung tablet screen is the most beautiful thing i have ever seen.

The want is strong with this one, and 30" is a nice size after all.
Sad that its not available on Norway at the moment, maybe they fere the strong European consumer rights?
Any other Europeans finding this on the dell store or their local ones?

My first was a NEC 1770nx, got a Dell 2407 WFP after that, and you could in a sense say that i still am using that as i got my 3008 WFP after the 2407 broke the third time... I am getting a ultra sharp again.

Make that 40" at least and I'm in. 4K monitors need to go BIGGER! Stop thinking small, people. Wasabi Mango showed the way!

Surface area of 30" screen is less than one quarter of 55".
OK, it has higher resolution PER INCH, but I can buy a bloody mind blowing 2017 55" 4k OLED by LG for 2/3rd of the mentioned price.
Oh, and it comes with sat/T2 tuners and WebOS thingy that can do things and remote that can do things too.

FU Dell.

You also get free advertisements when you use that WebOS 'thingy'. Nice innit

And a 40-50ms response time

Well , I have found out that 34" on 21:9 is the best spot for size vs viewing distance when using the monitor for office use. I think 40" is too big to use as a desktop monitor imo...

Math is not your strongest subject is it?
A 30" has 29.75% of the surface area of a 55" screen, for the TV to be exactly 4 times a big as a 30" screen it must be 60"
