Dell Working on 21:9 1440p IPS Cinema Display

Dell's 21:9 1440p display is going to be big.

Recently, Dell announced its 24-inch 4K UltraSharp screen (UP2414Q) and its 28-inch 4K UltraSharp display (P2815Q). Now a rumor has surfaced about another model, though this time it's not a 4K unit.

The monitor in question is expected to be called the U3415W; it is a  24-inch monitor with a rather unusual resolution: 3440 by 1440. This gives it an aspect ratio of 21:9 – making it a 'cinema' display.

Dell's U2913WM, now add 5 inches to the diagonal and a bunch more pixels.Dell's U2913WM, now add 5 inches to the diagonal and a bunch more pixels.

Beyond the notion that it will feature an IPS display made by LG, little more is known about the monitor. In fact, it is still a rumor, so it could all be a bunch of hogwash.

There was no official word on pricing, though the report indicates that the display might already be formally announced around the end of December, though it wouldn't be surprising if it was later.

    And here I am trying to decide if I should pick up a 2nd 1080p monitor.

    Aw! I was just thinking how I'd like a 21:9 monitor that was greater than 1080p. Couldn't find one, so I decided to get two U2412M. Just ordered less than a week ago. sadface.jpg

    Why don't monitors come in 40 inches and up? It'd be nice to have big low input display in the living room for some couch/ steam box gaming.

    The only thing I think about after 1080p is that I will need a beefier GPU to run my games on high.

    My understanding is that the upcoming 28" 4k monitor isn't an UltraSharp, evidenced by its name (P2815Q) and its lower price tag.

    been using a 30" 2560x1600 for years so I'm not seeing this as practical. Its actually a very small screen as the wider it is, the smaller it is for any given diagonal size. Websites are still designed for tall screens. Wide just doesn't work for anything other then movies unless the screen is very large and has high res. I'll get another 2 30" monitors when they come down in price a little.

    "The monitor in question is expected to be called the U3415W; it is a 24-inch monitor "

    I think there is a typo there. If the model number is U3415W, then it is 34 inches, not 24.

    This is pointless, since everyone nowadays has a Smart TV. Since i have a Smart TV, there's no way i'm watching movies on my monitor, no matter how big and good is.

    Like 'chicofehr' suggests, that is a small screen.

    Give me that in 32", and I'll put my money where my mouth is.

    EDIT: So I read that this is in FACT a THIRTY FOUR INCH screen, and not a 24".

    Anyone seen it for sale?

    Time to put my money where my mouth is...

    Jup, you got it wrong there.
    The '34' in U3415W indicates that this is a 34-inch monitor, not 24-inch.

    This might actually end up being a good gaming/productivity monitor.
    Most of the width from an eyefinity setup but without any borders and taller than the other ****x1080 ultra widescreens out there so you can fit more of your documents in the view.

    WTF is a Smart TV and why would you have one if you don't watch TV?

    No one beats Dell and monitors... NO ONE. Nec is good, but way too costly and thus not in the running. Even if rich I wouldn't buy NEC, I have some Dell IPS monitors (LED backlit, etc) that are amazing. You can hardly imagine anything better.

    I'd probably consider purchasing one if it was in the $200-225's price range. It's a bit taller and wider than 1080p and a better overall dimension for cinematic movie viewing. It's just tall enough and wide enough to be pretty reasonable for much better overall multitasking. This is probably the perfect dimension for someone wanting a bit more multitasking space, but a bit limited on desktop space.

    It's worth noting that Dell generally does a good job with making the bezels very score and not unusual so they actually work well for both horizontal or vertical triple monitor setups.

    All I am waiting for is a 24-30inch monitor that does 120hz "ABOVE" 1080p!
