High-dynamic-range (HDR).

NOTE: Dell HDR is the term used to describe our Dell line of monitors that can receive and process an HDR signal but do not adhere to the HDR10 specification.

Dell’s HDR feature has been designed with a PC user in mind and supports specifications that are different from existing TV standards for HDR. With a peak brightness of more than 50 percent higher than your average monitor’s typical brightness (400-550 nits vs. 250-300 nits), Dell HDR monitors use a hardware engine in the monitor to process HDR metadata and deliver true-to-life color, contrast and detail.

Dell HDR monitors are perfect for users looking for a striking viewing experience with beautifully modern design at an affordable price point.

Dell HDR monitors:

  • Dell 27 Ultrathin Monitor (S2718D)
  • Dell UltraSharp 27 4K Monitor (U2718Q)
  • Dell UltraSharp 25 Monitor (U2518D)
  • Dell 24 Monitor (S2418H/HN/HX/NX)
  • Dell 27 Monitor (S2718H/HN/HX/NX)
