New Dell UltraSharp Monitors Built to Foster Better Workdays, More Loyal Workers

Anyone who’s worked in an office knows the role an individual’s workspace can play in the course of their day. Just as a squeaky chair or sticky keyboard can make every day a subtle nightmare, a clean, optimized workspace puts people in the headspace to achieve stress-free productivity and deliver better customer experiences.

And it’s hard to think of a workspace fixture that has a bigger effect on productivity than the monitor. Forrester 1 has found that visually appealing, productivity-enabling monitors are becoming key for attracting and retaining the best talent, especially as demographics shift toward a new generation of digital natives. Research by IDC2 adds that workers are increasingly asking for a larger screen size, better support for multitasking and higher-resolution monitors, whether they’re working with in-depth data, visual media or other detail-oriented projects.

So as the world’s number one monitor brand3, Dell is stepping up once again to meet the demands of the changing workforce by introducing seven new Dell UltraSharp monitors that push the boundaries of display technology even further. The new releases all deliver innovative design and special features geared toward driving productivity with ultimate front-of-screen performance and outstanding user experience.

The Dell UltraSharp 49 Curved, Dell UltraSharp 32 4K USB-C and Dell UltraSharp 34 Curved USB-C monitors enable workers to multitask on content from two different PCs thanks to an innovative Picture-by-Picture feature. Workers can also utilize the built-in keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) feature to toggle between and edit their content using a single keyboard and mouse. Moreover, these monitors are designed to reduce desk clutter with a convenient USB-C connectivity option that charges workers’ laptops up to 90W while transmitting data and video signals from a single cable.

Meanwhile the Dell UltraSharp 24 and 27 USB-C monitors focus on delivering powerful visual clarity and performance in a more compact package for workers with desk space constraints or who simply prefer a smaller form factor.

Each new monitor delivers a distinct set of features that cater to and boost productivity in users across a range of industries, including financial services and insurance, trading floor, financial analysis and accounting, media post-production, programming and engineering. Simply put, if you’re working with detailed visuals or information, these monitors make life much easier.

Dell UltraSharp 49 Curved Monitor (U4919DW)

Perhaps our biggest announcement is the introduction of the world’s first 49-inch curved dual quad high-definition (QHD)4 monitor. The innovative, ultra-wide 32:9 aspect ratio delivers an immersive panoramic experience without design or functionality compromises. It’s the ideal upgrade for workers who have been operating on two 27-inch QHD monitors, delivering a seamless onscreen space with 5120 x 1440 resolution and IPS technology that allows users to view more content and see fine details with consistent color.

Dell UltraSharp 32 4K USB-C Monitor (U3219Q)

Workers in visual fields who want a screen experience with four times more resolution than full HD will appreciate this new monitor’s Ultra HD 4K resolution. It offers VESA-certified DisplayHDR™ 400 for HDR content playback with stunning, true-to-life images. This monitor also provides 400 nits of brightness (typical) and a color depth of 1.07 billion colors to reveal details workers wouldn’t otherwise be able to see. This vivid clarity comes with an edge-to-edge viewing experience thanks to the virtually borderless InfinityEdge bezel.

Dell UltraSharp 34 Curved USB-C Monitor (U3419W)

This monitor can double as a workstation and entertainment hub with an immersive 34-inch curved USB-C monitor experience and built-in dual 9W speakers. The wide quad high-definition (WQHD) screen offers 3440×1440 resolution and IPS technology in a 21:9 aspect ratio ideal for multitasking or fully experiencing breathtaking HD media. 

Dell UltraSharp 24 and 27 USB-C Monitors (U2419HC & U2719DC)

Our new smaller monitors, the 24-inch (FHD) and 27-inch (QHD) monitors, available with or without USB-C connectivity, provide superb screen performance in an innovative design. Workers can see their projects in fine detail and living color in a sleek form factor with a thin side profile and small monitor base. With uncluttered workspaces being another key worker need, these sleek monitors help employees optimize their desk space while still getting an edge-to-edge viewing experience thanks to the virtually borderless InfinityEdge bezel. That bezel makes these monitors ideal for a seamless multi-monitor setup.

Each new UltraSharp product also comes standard with the same user comfort features as the rest of the innovative monitor line, including fully adjustable stands 5 for user comfort, flicker-free screens and ComfortView, a feature that reduces blue light emission to optimize eye comfort. The Easy Arrange feature on Dell Display Manager helps users organize multiple applications for multitasking efficiency, while the Premium Panel Exchange 6 and Dell’s Three Year Advanced Exchange Service 7 make these monitors an easy choice for peace of mind.

Dell UltraSharp monitors are purpose-built to make workers more productive, precise and comfortable on the job. And those small details can add up to an exceptionally loyal, happy and thriving workplace, one day at a time.
