4K Lands on the Desktop


Why spend upwards of $700 on a monitor? Because it runs at 4K resolution, of course. The pixel density and color accuracy of Dell's new UltraHD display simply can't be bested at this price.

Amazing response and color performance right out of the box. Easy fine-tuning adjustments through screen-mounted controls. Versatile and handsome stand. Nice matte finish on the screen

No side-mounted USB. Screen gets very hot. Still expensive

Dell UltraSharp UP2414Q review


A superb display, but you're paying through the nose for a mere 24-inches

Super display ; Great features

Very expensive ; Just 24-inches

Dell UP2414Q review


Stunning monitor with superb colour accuracy but Ultra HD is an issue at 24 inches

It's early days for Ultra HD though and there are still big issues, there's simply not good enough support yet for such high PPI monitors, either in the OS or applications. If you're really keen on getting an Ultra HD monitor then you'll want to invest...

Dell UP2414Q


An outstanding 4K debut from Dell that's keenly priced. Win-win.

Outstanding colour accuracy ; Incredibly sharp ; Excellent ergonomics ; Range of connections ; Not extortionately expensive

So-so contrast ratio and black level ; No HDMI 2.0

This gives you plenty of flexibility to get what you need, particularly the option to save your own presets and quickly switch between them. There are some interesting options hidden away in the menus, too, including an intriguingly titled 'Uniformity...

Dell UP2414Q


I'd delete my previous reviews, if I could. Dell sent me a bad cable, that's all. Replace the DisplayPort Cable -- REPLACE IT ! ! ! I was having serious problems until, one day, I decided to replace the cable. Be sure it's 4K, 60 Hz rated... with...

2160 x 3840 pixels, 60 Hz, IPS, DisplayPort 1.2

Dell sent me a bad DIsplayPort cable ; I didn't realize this until now, 9 months later ; See below

wonderful colors and detail


i found that cpu integrated graphics is still pretty buggy - definitely put this monitor on a discrete video card to get 60Hz support over displayport.

the resolution and color reproduction are amazing. i've never seen a monitor where the colors are this good - i always calibrate my monitors so they look half decent, but this monitor starts out really really good from the factory ; built-in usb3 hub...

there's a noticeable amount of backlight bleed off axis - so if you look at the screen at a 45 deg. angle or more, the background won't look black

Best Available Display August 2014


Everything about this display is of a flawless quality. It's not comparable to any other product of any brand in that regard. It's not pretentious and sleek like an Apple product, instead it ships in a secure, plain box, and unlike an Apple product it...

Amazing display. I really think that the 15" Retina MacBook sets a high expectation, this display exceeds that expectation. The single best display I have ever seen in my life. And it's somewhat affordable. USB Hub, dual DisplayPort input with clever...

Ridiculously, SEVERAL people have found it logical to reduce it's overall rating of this product because their video card (or windows) doesn't support 60Hz on portrait mode. As if somehow that was something that this monitor has anything to do with ; I...

It's... almost there


When you start editing your photos or video on this display, you will be amazed with that 4k resolution. When you play a video game at 4K all maxed out (you will need some serious hardware to do this fyi) you'll want to play the best looking games just...

Make no mistake about it, this is one hell of a display. Sure I need dual GTX 780s overclocked to get great performance, sure it requires quite a bit of fiddling to get the DP 1.2 happening, but its great ; The good: It will blind you with it's...

The bad: It kind of hurts to look at. After a few hours I notice a good amount of eye strain. I'm not quite sure why this is since it's an IPS panel and at such a high resolution I would assume that my eyes would have to work even less, not harder....

Swivelled portrait, videos look -bad-, jittery.


I can't wait until better/cheaper 4K/UHD, 185 dpi, IPS monitors, with 120 Hz/fps, portait mode, appear.

It's IPS, so colors "remain true" ( i.e. they don't shift ) ; no matter their screen location ; When you're 12 to 18 inches from the screen ; as I am, the high resolution is much appreciated ; It swivels portrait, so you can view -much- more text ;...

When swivelled portrait, as mine is, it's 29 Hz only ; i.e. videos are limited to a jittery 29 fps ; no matter how good your video card may be ; ( $430, Quadro K2000, or $160 Quadro K600 ) ; When a video pans a scene, it looks -bad-, jittery ; To get...

Slightly Better than UP3214Q


There just doesn't seem to be a way to win with this monitor and other Dell monitors I've tried. Dell has gone overboard with the gloss and brightness. I can't recommend this monitor at any price point.

Seemingly better construction than the 30" version. Equally high resolution

It exhibits awful light bleed just like the 30" version. It's also far too glossy. The colors are off and the whites are so bright that they drown out everything else. When you turn the brightness down, the screen turns into a mirror. Also, did I...
