As far as the 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) resolution is concerned, we feel that ~32” is something of a sweet spot. Giving a nice experience without scaling, with an excellent pixel density for a multitude of uses. The Dell U3219Q of the UltraSharp series makes use of a 31.5” UHD panel, combining it with some attractive features and the smart low-key aesthetic such monitors from the company are known for. The monitor adopts the ‘InfinityEdge’ dual-stage bezel design, with a very slim hard outer component and slender panel border. The panel border blends in seamlessly with the rest of the screen surface when the monitor is switched off. Including both bezel components, the bezel has a thickness of 7.6mm at the top and sides and 14.7mm at the bottom. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by pressable buttons on the underside of the bottom bezel, towards the right side. There is also a vertical-slit power LED that glows a gentle white when the monitor is switched on.

Simple styling

A 31.5” 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) IPS-type (In Plane Switching or similar) panel is used, yielding a pixel density of 139.87 PPI (Pixels Per Inch). This is coupled with a 60Hz refresh rate, 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles and a specified static contrast ratio of 1300:1. This is somewhat higher than the usual 1000:1 specified for the panel type. A (presumably light) matte anti-glare screen surface is employed, with a 10-bit colour depth supported. The monitor supports VESA DisplayHDR 400, which is the most basic level of certification provided for HDR by VESA. In addition to supporting 10-bit colour, the monitor has an LED backlight with a typical maximum luminance of 400 cd/m². This is a basic edgelight system without effective local dimming, so the HDR experience is far from ‘full fat’. The monitor is factory calibrated to an DeltaE of ≥2 using an sRGB emulation setting that promises 99% sRGB coverage. Using its full native gamut, the monitor offers 95% DCI-P3 coverage which is appropriate for HDR content and will give a vibrant and saturated look to SDR content.

Other aspects to note include a 5ms grey to grey response time and a ‘ComfortView’ Low Blue Light (LBL) setting to enhance viewing comfort. Particularly useful in the evenings, where blue light exposure should be restricted to aid a relaxing night’s sleep. The ports and associated features are mainly down-firing and include, as consecutively labelled in the image below; AC power input (internal power converter), a stand lock feature (stops the stand release button being pressed), HDMI 2.0, DP 1.2, USB-C, 3.5mm audio output and 4 USB 3.0 ports – plus upstream. 2 USB 3.0 ports are located at the rear (1 with fast-charging) and 2 at the side (1 with fast-charging). The included stand attaches using a quick-release mechanism and can be removed to make way for an alternative 100 x 100mm VESA solution. The included stand offers full ergonomic flexibility, including tilt, height, swivel and pivot adjustment (90° clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation into portrait).

A broad selection of ports

Further information can be found on Dell’s website. The monitor is available from the manufacturer directly and should tape out to retailers globally in the next few months. The initial RRP is $1099 USD but price should drop when retail competition kicks in
