Dell Announces New Line of UltraSharp Monitors

New displays and meeting systems from Dell Technologies (NYSE:DELL) help creatives and office professionals work productively and comfortably in hybrid work environments. According to IDC research, 81% of employees believe monitors with higher resolution, better ergonomics and color improve the overall working experience. This expanded UltraSharp portfolio features state-of-the art technology, including mini-LED, built-in colorimeter and low blue light reduction screens.

"Technology that helps us do our best work is critical as we adapt to the new hybrid work environment," said Bert Park, senior vice president and general manager, Software & Peripherals Product Group, Dell Technologies. "Our monitors have always been the most desired companion to any PC, and our new line is no different. We're helping customers push productivity to the edge while delivering great performance, style and comfort." As world's number one monitors brand for seven years running, Dell offers an end-to-end ecosystem of collaboration tools that can meet the needs of every worker and offers the most EPEAT Gold registered monitors globally.
Exceptional color accuracy, contrast and precision for creatives
Design professionals rely on color accurate displays to produce their creative masterpieces. The Dell UltraSharp 32 HDR PremierColor Monitor (UP3221Q) is the world's first professional monitor with 2K mini-LED direct backlit dimming zones, where the individually controlled backlight zones on the monitor provide contrast with deep blacks and bright whites.

With the widest DCI-P3 color coverage in a professional monitor at 99.8%, 4K resolution and VESA DisplayHDR 1000, the 32-inch UltraSharp enables precise and uniform color reproduction of film and video content. It is the world's first 31.5-inch professional monitor with a built-in Calman Powered colorimeter4, giving creators the flexibility of on-demand or scheduled calibration with or without the PC attached.

Enhanced eye comfort and broader screen space for desk-centric professionals
For desk-centric professionals who frequently work with spreadsheets and data-driven tasks, the Dell UltraSharp 24 USB-C Hub Monitor (U2421E) and Dell UltraSharp 34 Curved USB-C Hub Monitor (U3421WE) offers the ideal balance between comfort and functionality.

Designed with wellness in mind, the 24-inch UltraSharp monitor has a 16:10 aspect ratio and is Dell's first monitor with ComfortView Plus - a built-in, TÜV Rheinland-certified Hardware Low Blue Light solution that maintains color accuracy on the screen and minimizes blue light emission to optimize eye comfort. The 34-inch UltraSharp Monitor features WQHD resolution, 95% DCI-P3 color coverage and delivers an immersive audiovisual experience with three-sided ultra-thin borders and built-in dual speakers.

Meeting Space Solutions for seamless onsite and remote collaboration
As offices gradually return to site, businesses will need to reconfigure their meeting spaces to better support essential onsite employees collaborating with colleagues who may be best served working from home.

Dell's newest Meeting Space Solution for Microsoft Teams Rooms offers a complete group collaboration ecosystem that includes the OptiPlex 7080 Micro running the Teams Room experience on Windows, Dell Large Format Monitors as well as audio and video peripherals. With proximity detection and one-touch join, employees can start meetings on time while instantly projecting content in the room and to virtual participants.

Plug and play magnetic soundbar
New P-series monitors (P2721Q, P3221D, P3421W) and the new 24-inch UltraSharp monitor can be paired with our latest audio innovation - the Dell Slim Soundbar (SB521A)- which attaches magnetically to the bottom of the display and allows users to tilt, swivel and pivot the monitor without the soundbar getting in the way. As the world's slimmest and lightest soundbar5 the powerful 3.6 W speakers deliver high quality sound in an easy plug and play setup - no software required.

450$ for U2421E? I paid 600$ for HP LP2475, which is also IPS 24" 1200p 60Hz 1000:1, but with a wide gamut and that was 11 years ago!

I'd expect much better after a decade.


BTW - LP2475, truly one of the best displays ever made. 11 years of hard work and still going strong.

PC Display tech is going backwards, and prices just keep going up...

At this rate, we will be paying $2000 for a 27" IPS with the same old 1000:1 contrast, 300nit brightness and sRGB colour in 10 years time. Ahh, maybe we get wide colour gamut thrown in for that price by then...

"built-in colorimeter"

This is one of those things I dont understand, its great to have this, I would love to know my screen is showing to the best of its ability what something should look like.
But....why...why is there not a proper app for this for our phones yet?

I know there were apps in the past that tried/did this but its all so vague and not established.

Like why dont AMD and/or Nvidia make some app that you can put on your Phone, link with the gpu software and then use your phone's camera to color calibrate the screen?

Yeah. Colorimeters are very precise devices, otherwise what would be the point of calibration? You can't just use Your phone camera for the same reason You can't trust an uncalibrated display - they vary in picture quality.

Imagine surveyors start using their phones instead of levellers and theodolites - would You feel safe inside the building they helped construct? :P

I paid $600 for a 2001FP's 20 years ago before 1600 x 1200 gaming became popular and it is still alive and kicking to this day.

60HZ only, i'm guessing it uses too much energy or is way too hot for 120hz
It's not that, it's a color critical work monitor. The kind you don't want to overdrive much (overshooting and all that).

If they keep up with the poor build quality they won't sell much. There are quite a few complaints about the lower bezel for the 2020 models.
