Color is key with Dell's latest trio of Ultrasharp displays

Dell is going after the professional photography and cinema market with its latest PremierColor Ultrasharp monitors. These displays all have 10-bit-per-pixel color depth, and their fancy panels feature 178º horizontal and vertical viewing angles. Dell also calibrates these displays at the factory to claimed delta-E values of less than two. A 31.5" model offers 4K (3840x2160) resolution, while 27" and 25" flavors run at 2560x1440.


The 31.5" Ultrasharp UP3216Q is the big daddy of the lot. 4K resolution is the name of the game here, and the UP3216Q's color reproduction chops are likewise impressive. The display covers 99.5% of the Adobe RGB color space, 100% of sRGB, 100% of the REC709 HDTV color space, and 87% of the digital cinema-oriented DCI-P3.

Meanwhile, the Ultrasharp UP2716D and UP2516D pack 2560x1440 panels. However, the color rendering in these models could be superior to the UP3216Q for some users. The "smaller" monitors cover 100% of the Adobe RGB, sRGB, and REC 709 color spaces, and an impressive 98% of DCI-P3. Clearly, these are the best choice for finishing heavily-filtered Instagram shots. These displays have thin bezels on three sides, and can rotate between portrait and landscape modes, as we expect from fancy monitors.

All these new Ultrasharp monitors are covered by Dell's zero-bright-dot policy and a three-year advance exchange warranty. No word on prices yet, but I think I can make out "expensive" in my crystal ball.
