Dell UltraSharp 27 4K PremierColor Monitor

Malcolm Owen:

In this monitor’s case, it offers 100% of the Adobe RGB range, 98% coverage of DCI-P3, and 80% of BT2020, allowing it to represent a wide array of color space standards.

Displaying at a 4K resolution of 3,840 by 2,160 pixels at 60Hz, the LCD screen has a contrast ratio of 1,300:1 and a typical brightness of 250 nits. The front features an anti-glare treatment for the front polarizer hard coating, and the backlight is a white LED edgelight system.

Dell’s monitor may be seen as a potential cost-saving alternative to Apple’s Pro Display XDR, which is anticipated to be available to purchase in the near future. While Dell’s monitor is $3,000 cheaper than Apple’s version, it has fewer Thunderbolt 3 connections, is smaller with a lower resolution, and doesn’t feature Apple’s optional nano-texture glass etching to produce a matte finish.

Looks like it includes a stand. But why can’t they make a 5K?

The PPI is all wrong for macOS unfortunately. I wish Dell hadn’t cancelled their 5K. 😢

Raphael Sebbe:

Also something I don’t understand. 27″ @ 5K and 21″ @ 4K are the perfect retina (2x) densities, comfortable & crisp. Yet no one is making those.

Instead we get Full HD or oversized 4K, with all kinds of secondary features: response time, P3/Adobe RGB. Even Porsche design.
