24-Inch 4K Display from Dell Priced at $1399, 28-Inch 4K Model Coming at Under $1000




Following the initial revelation of some details on a new 24-inch 3840 x 2160 "4K" Ultra HD display from Dell yesterday, the company has now officially announced that the display launches today in the Americas with a $1399 price tag. A 32-inch model at the same resolution is also available for $3499, while Dell will be introducing a 28-inch 4K display in early 2014 with breakthrough pricing of under $1000.

24-inch UP2414Q (left) and 32-inch UP3214Q (right)
All three displays carry the same 3840 x 2160 resolution, giving them varying pixel densities ranging from 140 pixels per inch (ppi) on the 32-inch model to 157 ppi on the upcoming 28-inch model and 185 ppi on the 24-inch model.

The flagship Dell UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD Monitor delivers stunning screen clarity and detail with Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 resolution and high pixel density on an expansive 31.5-inch screen. Dell's largest monitor allows for easy multi-tasking and viewing multiple applications side by side, and its ultra-wide viewing angle ensures that images and colors remain consistent regardless of the perspective. Designed for graphic designers, video and game developers, CAD/CAM designers, engineers, photographers and other power users, the Dell UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD Monitor provides an exceptional, high performance viewing experience.

With the same remarkable, pin-point clarity, the Dell UltraSharp 24 Ultra HD Monitor, users can enjoy color consistency and precision from virtually any angle thanks to an ultra-wide viewing angle on a 28.3-inch screen. The UltraSharp 24 Ultra HD Monitor allows customers to see more and do more with uncompromising picture quality that facilitates multi-tasking on a screen that delivers four times more data than a Full HD monitor.
Both the 24-inch and 32-inch displays support refresh rates of 60 Hz over DisplayPort 1.2 and 30 Hz over HDMI, as well as a variety of ports including HDMI, DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort, four USB 3.0 ports, and a media card reader. Both displays also offer height, tilt, and swivel adjustments.

Exact details on the upcoming 28-inch model have yet to be released, but Dell says that it will offer "the same incredible Ultra HD screen performance" as the other members of the 4K display family and will carry multiple input ports for flexible connectivity.

Dell's new 4K displays arrive just as speculation regarding a potential 4K display from Apple has escalated ahead of the launch of the new Mac Pro later this month. Apple touts the new Mac Pro as being able to drive up to three 4K displays, but the company has not made any announcements about its display plans. The recent introduction of new 4K display panels from AU Optronics fueled speculation that Apple could be nearing an introduction for new displays, but Dell's displays may be the strongest hint yet that Apple may have something in the works given the two companies have typically used the same panel suppliers for their displays.

It's so you get the idea for pricing and what panels are available for the Apple's version (if one comes out). Apple doesn't make it's own panels, so if dell releases a 24", chances are apple will.

Saving my pennies now. SMH for the Dell monitors, but they are matte (I hope).

Or maybe $1000-$1200 for a 27"/28", since Dell is apparently going to land under $1000 for their 28".

I'll be waiting for sub-$1000 model then, thanks. Sounds odd they'd tell you in advance if you just hold out a little longer there'll be a bigger, cheaper one..?

But what about the Dell TV rumors we've been hearing for the past 2 years?

The prices aren't too bad, all things considered. I'd like the 24" just so I can get that awesome PPI.

I assume that the 24" would also reach below $1000 in early 2014, right? Wouldn't make sense for the 28" to be cheaper.

Well I guess decency is letting us know that if we buy now, we'll have been ripped off by next year.

All are 4K. The price appears to be a mistake.

I think this piece helps people set their expectation on Apple's pricing - it won't be cheap for sure!

Also, in case Apple doesn't launch their own 4k display alongside the Mac Pro, the pro's will know their options.

The 24" and 32" models have 10bit displays with a larger gamut and more calibration options. I'm betting the 28" will be the best for most users, though.

And of course, no Thunderbolt support (unless you use one of Apple's exclusive Thunderbolt adapters, priced accordingly).

You know, when is Apple just going to admit this Thunderbolt of theirs is a joke; no one else has adopted it, and it's just too expensive for what few accessories out there.

Can't wait for the MacPro with its octopus-like Thunderbolt cable extensions linking everything to the motherbeast.

P.S. Yes, I'm an Apple user and have been since 1990. I just don't like this walled-in-garden approach they've been taking since 2007.

I don't care. Where's NEC's version? That's the silliness with dismissive comments. On topic though, Apple is not always the first out the gate. They release things when they are ready. They were not the first to implement the panel generation used in both the 27" cinema display and later the thunderbolt display. It was actually the same panel, but that's because desktop display panels have hefty gaps between generations. Once 4K stabilizes, it is likely to be the same underlying technology for 3-5 years.

I can think of a few things. It could be a lower binned panel. It could be a 6 bit or TN variant. This is not the first time I've seen seemingly wonky price schedules from Dell. I am interested in that 24" though.

History doesn't support that assertion among desktop displays. Also note the price of the 32" version. That may change, but bigger is not typically cheaper.

They have mini display port connections that can be used via the Thunderbolt port.

The Dell version won't be glossy and will have multiple inputs. Oh and it will be cheaper too. This is one of the few areas where I would put Dell above Apple.
