Dell has removed the casings from its refreshed UltraSharp monitors, including what it calls the world’s first 40-inch ultra-wide curved WUHD monitor, ahead of the fully virtual consumer electronics show. We expect a wide range of computing products at CES 2021, and Dell is already doing well.
The new line of computer monitors covers a wide range of sizes and prices and aims to “improve the work experience and increase employee productivity”.
Dell UltraSharp 40 Curved Monitor
The Dell UltraSharp 40 Curved Monitor (U4021QW) leads this renewed line. Available Jan. 28 from $ 2,100, Dell claims this monitor has 35% more screen space than a 32-inch 16: 9 4K display.
Dell specifically calls it the world’s first 40-inch curved ultra-wide 5K2K WUHD monitor, based on publicly available data of competing products seen in October 2020. For reference, it is two inches larger than the option of LG, the 38-inch LG 38WN75C.
Looking at the specs, the IPS monitor has a 2,500-ray curved screen, which creates a wider field of view, minimizes reflection, and provides near-uniform visual focus for a comfortable, enveloping view. Its resolution is 5120 x 2160, or 140 PPI, for excellent pixel density. The monitor also integrated two 9-watt speakers. It covers 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and 100% of the Adobe sRGB spectrum.
Connectivity includes DisplayPort 1.4, two HDMI 2.0 ports, one Thunderbolt 3 port (with up to 90 watts of charging), one USB Type B port, one USB-C downstream port for charging, four USB-A ports and a speed of 1 x USB-A superspeed, as well as an RJ45 Ethernet socket and a 3.5 mm jack socket for audio.
We’ve found some of the best ultra-wide monitors and curved monitors already available for purchase if you’re interested.
Dell UltraSharp 38 Curved USB-C Monitor
Directly behind the Dell UltraSharp 40 curved monitor is its little brother, the UltraSharp 38 Curved USB-C Monitor (U3821DW.) Also available on January 24, this is the cheapest curved option, starting at $ 1,500. .
The main features on board this monitor include the curved 2350 ray screen, as well as its WQHD + 3840 X 1600 resolution. Although it is a lower resolution and a smaller radius than the UltraSharp 40, the 1600-pixel vertical height means you can see more with less scrolling. The monitor also covers 95% of the DCI-P3 color space.
It includes DisplayPort 1.4, two HDMI 2.0 ports, one USB Type-C port, one superspeed USB 3.2 Type B upstream port, three USB 3.2 Gen 2 downstream ports, one USB 3.2 Gen 1 charging port and one USB Type-C port in downstream, as well as a 3.5mm audio jack and an RJ45 port.
Dell UltraSharp 27 and UltraSharp 24 USB-C Hub Monitors
The UltraSharp 27 and 24 USB-C Hub Monitors (U2722DE / U2422HE) will be available in March and start at $ 680 and $ 460 respectively. . The monitors have virtually no bezels, which makes for a more modern and efficient design.
The larger UltraSharp 27 USB-C hub comes with a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440. It’s better than budget FHD displays because you’ll be able to see 1.77 times more detail than usual.
Connectivity options include an RJ45 and USB-C jack, so you can enjoy a stable Ethernet connection, as well as charge up to 90 watts to power your laptop with just one cable. Color coverage includes 100% Adobe sRGB and 95% DCI-P3 spectrum.
Now for the smaller monitor, the Dell UltraSharp 24 USB-C Hub. This budget-friendly USB-C monitor features Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution on a spacious 23.8-inch screen. Like all other monitors so far, it comes with Dell ComfortView Plus, which optimizes the display for eye comfort. Color spectra include 100% Adobe sRGB and 85% DCI-P3.
Dell UltraSharp 24 and UltraSharp 27 monitors

Dell 24/27/34 Video Conferencing Monitors
