    This is a QHD 2560x1440 monitor (4 times the resolution of 720p HD), not a 4K or UHD monitor. It has the same resolution as a standard 27" monitor, as well as the U2515H, but in a 23.8" viewable size. A smaller panel with the same resolution results in a smaller dot pitch.

    Dell's "4K" monitors offer 3840x1920 resolution (4 times the resolution of 1080p HD).

    Thanks for posting.
    So this is basically a dumbed down, less capable, non-UltraSharp version of the U2515H for £10 less (going by Amazon prices). What's the point?

    Granted, it does have a slightly higher PPI, but apart from that it's worse in every way.
    You'd even have to purchase a separate cable in order to use it with a Mac as far as I can make out.
