The stunning new Dell OLED 4K UHD PC monitor with USB Type-C, unveiled at CES 2016
Stephan Jukic – January 06, 2016
In addition to all the OLED 4K UHD TV announcements coming out of CES 2016 from companies like the obvious culprit LG and the newcomer to this technology Panasonic with its very impressive new OLED models, we now also have a new OLED 4K monitor for PCs on the way, this time courtesy of Dell.
The new Dell UltraSharp 30 is the latest innovative PC display product from the company which already gained some extra fame for its 2015 5K UHD PC monitor –also an UltraSharp—and the new product is indeed very eye-catching.
The UltraSharp 30 offers a whopping native contrast ratio of 400,000:1, supports 4K ultra HD resolution at 3840 x 2160 pixels and offers an unprecedented lightning quick response time of just 0.1 milliseconds. Furthermore, the new monitor also offers some exquisite colors thanks to 100% sRGB coverage, 100% AdobeRGB coverage and a very impressive 97% coverage of the new and much broader DCI-P3 color standard that’s in favor with video and animation editing professionals. In other words, this is a 4K UHD monitor on steroids.
However, the cool specs don’t stop at display and response time prowess. The UltraSharp 30 also offers up the latest generation of USB Type C (USB 3.0) connectivity for video and single cable power of up to 100 watts. This is also a feature which will feature prominently in a number of other Dell business class devices for 2016 and many of these gadgets on the CES 2016 Show floor space for the company are running on the new type of USB connection.
Dell itself is firmly stating that the new UltraSharp 30 monitor makes for the perfect desktop work companion for serious PC users and we’re inclined to believe them given the above specs and the fact that this particular monitor can charge other devices with some serious kick while also serving as a second display.
As for the new monitor’s OLED technology, it’s still pretty much a one-of-a-kind thing in a 4K PC display, considering that OLED still represents the very cutting edge of display technology even in 4K UHD TVs.
And as for pricing, well as you might be expecting, the UltraSharp 30 from LG won’t at all be cheap, retailing for a price of $4,999 when it goes on sale in March of 2016. For a bit of perspective, this is $2,000 more than the price of a 55 inch 2015 OLED 4K smart TV from LG.
