Proper picture quality

VESA-certified DisplayHDR 400 means extra brightness, deeper contrasts and stunning colours for images that truly pack a punch. The screen's 178/178 wide viewing angles and UltraWide 21:9 format make it guru enough to accommodate group work as well as side-by-side multi-file comparisons that professionals in finance, banking and graphic design are certain to appreciate. And gaming fans are in for a visual treat as well, thanks to Adaptive-Sync technology that guarantees fast, fluid gameplay.

100 Hz. It's right there in the title.

They pretty much released same display for the third time. 1b, 1c with kvm and now this. Too bad the panel used is a mediocre quality VA.

The USB hub is in the wrong place.

Push the price down a bit... or this will be forgotten fast.

As in, -100 bucks or so. This looks like a 60hz native VA with overdrive ergo ghosting/smearing noticeably. 400 nits isn't special and I dread to see how that is calibrated. The only good thing is probably display size and curve + resolution, which seems an OK match.

Gotta say I do applaud seeing the standard featureset of monitors grow. Adaptive sync is becoming near standard now, and a decent refresh rate is no longer forgotten completely. The execution matters, but its a start anyway.

Actually, there are very few 400nits or eve 350nits UWQHD monitors, so for the price that is an amazing feature!

Also, max brightness is 500nits apparantly, even though it has vesa displayhdr400, so I'll be checking out the reviews!

I'll wait for a 4K monitor with displayport 2 and HDMI 2.1.

Maybe it's an optical illusion, but the second pic makes it look like it's not a continuous curved radius, but split into three equal segments - flat at either edge and curved in the middle.

If that's the case, then this is a hard nope. I can adjust to uniform curves, but dealing with mixed radii as objects cross the screen is going to be a mindf**k.

High peak brightness is not a very relevant stat above 350cd/m.

What it does give you is a brighter backlight with as a result a higher black point. Static contrast is where its at, not brightness.

Higher brightness has its uses in well lit rooms on bright sunny days.

I'll agree that static contrast is equally valuable for image quality, and in most use cases the maximum contrast at 200 nits or lower is what matters.

Certainly there are matte screens at work in a corner office with windows making up two of the four walls and 400 nits isn't always enough, but it's all the Dell ultrasharps are capable of...
