Dell claims the U4919W represents the world’s first dual Quad HD (QHD, 2560x1440) monitor. Indeed, its 5120x1440 resolution is nothing to sneeze at. However, note that you’ll need a high-end graphics card that supports that large resolution in order to achieve over 7.3 million pixels. Additionally, Dell recommends using a video source with HDMI 2.0 or DisplayPort 1.2 for maximum picture quality at the 60Hz refresh rate.

The monitor is said to ship 99% sRGB factory-calibrated with a Delta-E less than two (it’s generally believed that errors less than three cannot be seen by the naked eye). 

Physically, the monitor has a 21-degree forward tilt and five-degree back tilt with a 170-degree swivel in either direction. It also comes with 100 x 100 mm VESA support for wall mounting.

Heavily targeting professionals, such as financial services firms and graphic designers, the U4919DW can support two PCs simultaneously with the same keyboard and mouse; just hit CTRL+Alt+1 to switch machines. At a press event, Dell said it sees continuing use cases among professionals for large monitors with AR and VR development being a driver.

The $1,699 monitor comes with a stand, power cable, DisplayPort-to-DisplayPort cable, a USB-C cable, HDMI cable and USB 3.0 upstream cable, plus some setup, regulatory and factory calibration information. 

Size-wise, the U4919W has limited competition today. There’s Samsung’s 49-inch C49HG90 32:9 curved monitor, but that monitor targets gamers, rather than professionals, with a lower 3840x1080 resolution, FreeSync, a 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time.

Dell’s USB-C Pro Monitor Army

In addition to the U4919DW, Dell announced six more monitors targeting professionals today. At its unveiling event, the vendor noted IDC research pointing to 20 percent of laptops being USB-C only by 2020, so these new UltraSharps come with USB-C options a plenty. The displays are available now, with prices ranging from $349-$1,149.

    Sadly, this monitor is only good for productivity tasks. Still waiting for a 38-inch 3840 x 1600 (21:9) 100Hz (or higher) G-Sync ultrawide monitor to hit the market :(
  • moogleslam
    49" 5120x1440 @120Hz, G-Sync, and an aggressive curve, and you can take my money.
  • hannibal
    6000-1000$ ;) for the above...
