Yesterday at the Dell Business event, the company showed off a pair of new displays. The first is a 55-inch widescreen display delivers full HD resolution and is intended for teleconferencing. Meh. More interesting to us is the Dell UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K monitor, the world’s first display with 5120 x 2880 Ultra HD 5K resolution. That’s a little more exciting.
It is the first of its kind in the world. The Ultra HD 5K is equivalent to four times the resolution of QHD and seven times the resolution of Full HD. It also features Dell PremierColor and the anti-smudge and anti-reflective edge-to-edge glass design, which should help with color accuracy and picture quality, especially for color-critical work.
This monitor also has a pair of 16W integrated Harmon Kardon speakers, six USB ports and one media card reader to connect with all of your peripherals. The Dell UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K Monitor will cost you $2,499.99 and will be available in the fourth quarter of this year. Obviously the price will come down over time and honestly this isn’t a bad price for the first of its kind anyway. If you are in the market for a new monitor, this may be worth checking out.
