Dell UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD UP3214Q

 

The Dell UltraSharp UP3214Q is an enormous (and enormously expensive) 32-inch Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) monitor that delivers exquisite 4K image detail, along with very accurate colors.

Excellent Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) image detail. Accurate colors. Extensive picture settings. Wide viewing angles.

Expensive. Slightly crushed blacks. No side-mounted USB ports.

Conclusion Designers, photographers, content creators, and graphics pros of all stripes who demand top-shelf performance and lots of screen real estate will love the Dell UP3214Q. Its IGZO/IPS panel offers four times the resolution of a Full HD...

Dell UP3214Q Review

 

Last year I spent time with one of the first UltraHD monitors to be come out and came away convinced of the benefits. Even though the screen size was not much larger than my usual display, the extra clarity and detail was totally worth it. It sealed my...

Dell UltraSharp 32 UP3214Q review: High-res, high-quality, high price

 

This is a very impressive but premium-priced 31.5-inch 4K monitor, primarily aimed at high-end content creators, scientists and engineers.

Huge screen size and 4K resolution ; Professional-level features, including optional hardware calibration ; Excellent image quality

Premium price tag ; High-end graphics card and DisplayPort connection required for 4K resolution at 60Hz ; Text is very small and can be hard to read unless scaled up

Although it's impressive to have such an enormous amount of screen real estate at your disposal (four document windows side-by-side on-screen is no problem), it's arguable that this monitor is overkill for mainstream business workloads. Type is tiny at...

Dell UltraSharp UP3214Q

 

Dell has set the standard for 4K monitors again

Excellent colour accuracy ; Smart, functional design ; Outstanding build quality ; Cheaper than rivals ; Best size for 4K at present

Uniformity could be better ; No HDMI 2.0

Like Dell's 24-inch 4K monitor, those options include factory calibrated presets for sRGB and Adobe RGB, the option for two further saved 'calibrated' presets of your choosing and the ability to choose between any colour temperature level you desire.

Dell UltraSharp UP3214Q

 

Truly a class apart

Nice brightness, contrast ; Exceptionally well built ; Easy to use on-screen display (OSD)

Monitor doesn't "wake up" from sleep consistently

Throughout our performance tests and subjective use, the Dell UltraSharp UP3214Q monitor performed admirably well on all counts, and it's very well built. If you’re looking for a 4K monitor for work or pleasure, it's really one of the best ones out...

Dell UP3214Q

 

When I personally encountered this problem with this monitor, I called Dell Tech Support. Of course I had to speak to an individual who was obviously located halfway around the other side of the world from the USA, and whose English language skills...

This is an otherwise very capable 4K monitor. If Dell fixes the firmware (rev. A00) it will be a very good bargain for such a large screen 4K monitor

In order to obtain 4K resolution at 60Hz, it is absolutely necessary to activate this monitor's DisplayPort 1.2 capability. You cannot get 60Hz capability without using the DisplayPort 1.2 protocol. And that's the problem ; The firmware being presently...

Terrible

 

I've somewhat managed to reduce the excessive glow by turning off "Dynamic Contrast" but it's still awful.

Ultra high resolution

Awful light bleeding and colors. The whites are sun bright so it drowns out everything else and hurts eyes after about 30 minutes. Less if you are reading text. It's impossible to focus on text because of this glowing effect. The screen is also...
