Remember the 4K OLED monitor that Dell showcased at CES 2016 in Las Vegas? Well, Dell has finally started selling the monitor. For now, the monitor is up for purchase in the US, where it carries a $3499.99 (SGD 4891). Dell will begin shipping the UP3017Q in one to two weeks, so consumers in the US will be able to get their hands on it by the end of this month.
When it unveiled the UP3017Q at CES 2016, Dell had promised that the monitor would go on sale in three months with a $5000 price tag. Quite clearly, Dell ran into some issues that delayed the launch by a whole year. On the plus side, the monitor has finally been launched at a lower price than what was initially expected.
The monitor features a 30-inch OLED panel with 3840 x 2160 4K resolution, 0.1ms response time, 300 nit maximum brightness, 178/178 degree viewing angles, 1.07 billion colors, 100% Adobe RGB color gamut coverage, 100% Rec.709 coverage, 97.5% DCI-P3 coverage, and 85.8% Rec2020 coverage. The only slight disappointment is a 60Hz native refresh rate, which isn’t the best for high-end gaming. Even though Dell is targeting it at professional graphic artists and photographers, the UP3017Q is no doubt a desirable monitor for gamers as well as prosumers. Connectivity wise, the Dell Ultrasharp UP3017Q includes a DisplayPort 1.2, one HDMI 2.0, and a USB Type-C port.
While we don’t expect the monitor to land in Singapore anytime soon, it could be launched here eventually. And when that happens, we’re pretty sure a lot of you will be very tempted to get this one on your desk.
