Dell outs new 24-inch and 32-inch UltraHD 4K monitors

PCWorld - After prematurely letting the cat out of the bag with some weekend website leaks, Dell announced two new Ultra HD "4K" UltraSharp monitors on Monday: A 31.5-inch model as well as a 24-inch version, with both running at full 3840-by-2160-pixel resolution. 

Dell's touting the 31.5-inch UltraSharp as the flagship model, but to be frank, 32-inch screens are, well, enormous when they're just a few feet away from your face, and 31.5-inch 4K monitors are nothing new. Witness the Asus PQ321 Ultra HD, which sports the same resolution and $3,500 price tag as Dell's new display.

The Dell UltraSharp 24 UltraHD appears more eye-catching, at least on its 183 pixels-per-inch surface. Besides being a more desk-friendly size, the monitor packs a $1,400 sticker price—still steep for a monitor, but far more budget-friendly than its 32-inch counterparts. The IPS display offers 178-degree viewing angles and an adjustable stand, along with 99 percent AdobeRGB and 100 percent sRGB color gamut reproduction augmented by a factory calibration and baked-in fine-tuning tools.   Read More
