Report: Dell UP3017Q OLED monitor has been canned


— 10:00 AM on January 10, 2017

Remember that fancy Dell OLED monitor? According to Francophone tech site les Numériques, it won't be seeing the light of day. The site says it spoke with Dell personnel at CES, and that it was told the UP3017Q was canceled due to unresolvable image quality problems. Specifically, according to les Numériques, the issue was color drift when viewing the monitor off-angle.

The cancellation isn't all that surprising. The UP3017Q was first shown over a year ago at CES 2016, and nary a peep has been heard about it since. The scarcity of OLED TVs and monitors appears to indicate that there still may be some technical challenges to contend with in those arenas, something that gerbils in our forums were quick to point out. Still, it's always sad to see a new product fail to hit the market—especially one this cool.
