Summary: More and more display manufacturers have come out with 4K UHD displays, and having played around with a few before, we’ve finally managed to get our hands on Dell’s very own Dell UltraSharp UP3214Q UHD monitor that came out earlier this year. One things for sure, it’s big, heavy and very colourful. As far as look and feel are concerned, the UP3214Q monitor looks just like any UltraSharp monitor you may have seen for some time now.
Summary: Throughout our performance tests and subjective use, the Dell UltraSharp UP3214Q monitor performed admirably well on all counts, and it's very well built. If you’re looking for a 4K monitor for work or pleasure, it's really one of the best ones out there, no questions about that. If you can afford it, just close your eyes and buy it.
Pros: Nice brightness, contrast, Exceptionally well built, Easy to use on-screen display (OSD)
Cons: Monitor doesn't "wake up" from sleep consistently
Summary: "THE DELL ULTRASHARP 32 UP3214Q IS AWESOME" In a single monitor configuration, the Dell Ultrasharp 32 UP3214Q ($3499.99) is awesome – but it is certainly not cheap. Mac OS users will tend to have a better experience, but Windows users will have a completely usable and productive setup as well. If you read about the various corner cases that I have mentioned above, you can prepare yourself and benefit from an optimum user experience.
Conclusion: The Dell UP3214Q is both a wonderful looking display and a maddeningly frustrating one. When it works correctly, it produces beautiful images that are incredibly sharp. It has a fairly uniform screen and the full AdobeRGB color gamut that allows it to work well for professionals and image editing. However, the hardware and software support for UltraHD is at a stage that it will likely drive you crazy.
Dell UltraSharp UP3214Q 4K Ultra HD Monitor Review
6 March 2014
Conclusion: Once you experience a 4K monitor, it's terribly difficult returning to a pedestrian 1080p display, or even a 2560x1600 monitor, especially when you play around with one that performs as well as the Dell UP3214Q. Unlike some earlier (and lower quality) 4K monitors that use IGZO technology, the UP3214Q uses a high quality panel with superb color reproduction.
Pros: It's 4K, baby!, Superb color reproduction for graphics professionals, USB 3.0 ports, Built-in hardware Look Up Table (LUT), Premium warranty with advanced exchange
Cons: Kind of expensive, Relies on MST to deliver 60Hz at 4K, Stand doesn't rotate
Conclusion: The UP3214Q was an interesting first venture for us into the world of 4k desktop monitors. The screen is absolutely huge and the resolution is so massive it takes some real getting used to. Returning to a 1920 x 1080 screen afterwards seems like a huge drop in desktop real-estate and is quite a shock. The resolution and desktop area are obviously the main selling point of these new 4k displays and we were impressed by what it offered.
Pros: Massive screen size and huge resolution for multi-tasking and high res content, High end features like hardware calibration, wide gamut and 10-bit support, Good all round performance thanks to IPS-type panel
Cons: Detection of screen as two displays when using 60Hz can be problematic in some cases, PWM used for backlight dimming, Mediocre contrast ratio
Summary: Dell UltraSharp UP3214Q er definitivt en skjerm for entusiasten, men herligheten har sin pris.
