Dell UltraSharp 38 Curved Monitor: U3818DW

    38-inch curved monitor with an InfinityEdge display. Expansive views and incredible visuals mean fewer distractions and improved multitasking.

    You’ll be inspired to do more.

    The expansiveness of this 37.5-inch curved screen paired with virtually borderless InfinityEdge creates a near-complete field view which provides an almost uniform visual focus that reduces eye movement across the screen. You’ll work more comfortably with fewer distractions and more productivity.

    Gorgeous visuals are only the beginning: You’ll be oblivious to distractions. Your 37.5-inch, ultra wide curved monitor has a 21:9 aspect ratio and delivers approximately 25 percent more screen content than a 34-inch. Plus a gorgeous, expansive display with InfinityEdge offers virtually borderless screen.

    All-encompassing experience: The curved screen delivers a panoramic viewing experience while integrated 9W speakers bring the quality sound—a one-two punch that makes this monitor the ideal canvas for video editing projects.
