Following the footsteps of Samsung, Dell has decided to launch an ultrawide monitor with a 32:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 5120 x 1440.
The Dell UltraSharp U4919DW has a brightness of 350 nits and a contrast ratio of 1000:1. It also offers an 8/5 millisecond respone time and a 60Hz refresh rate. The panel itself is an IPS one featuring a 3800R curvature and covers 99% of the SRGB color space.
It comes equipped with a USB-C port with a 90W power rating to charge laptops, 2 HDMI 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort 1.4 port, 5 port USB 3.0 hub and 2 USB 3.0 upstream ports
This monitor aims to replace two monitors by one so there’s no hassle. It has Dell’s Picture-by-Picture mode so it can be used with two PCs simultaneously. The KVM helps it switch from one PC to the other in an instant.
The sales begin late October with a massive price tag of $1699. Samsung’s ultrawide monitor, the CHG90 offers much better bang for the buck since its also a 49inch 32:9 monitor but offers a 144Hz refresh rate (though at a slightly lower 1080p resolution) at just $999.
