High resolution 21:9 UltraWides provide an expansive working environment and is often admired by multi-taskers. The Dell U3821DW is a ~38″ offering designed with productivity and colour-critical work in mind. The usual smart styling associated with the UltraSharp series applies here, an unfussy and minimalistic appearance. The monitor includes a dual-stage design for the bezels at the top and sides. This encompasses a slender panel border that’s flush with the rest of the screen, plus a slim hard plastic outer component. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick at the rear of the monitor, towards the right as viewed from the front.

Minimalistic styling

The monitor uses a 37.5″ 3840 x 1600 curved IPS-type panel – 21:9 (or thereabouts) UltraWide. A light matte screen surface is employed, whilst a 1000:1 static contrast ratio, 178/178° viewing angles and 60Hz refresh rate are specified. The monitor offers 10-bit colour support and includes a factory calibration promising DeltaE <2 within the sRGB colour space. The flicker-free WLED backlight used offers a 300 cd/m² typical maximum luminance and a 95% DCI-P3 colour gamut. Low Blue Light (LBL) settings are included and a 5ms grey to grey response time is specified, which as usual you shouldn't put too much weight on. The included stand offers tilt, height and swivel adjustment and attaches to the screen using a quick-release mechanism. The stand can be easily removed and an alternative 100 x 100mm VESA compatible solution used instead. The ports face downwards and include; AC power input (internal power converter), 2 HDMI 2.0 ports, DP 1.4, 3.5mm audio output, USB-C 3.1 (DP Alt Mode and 90W PD), 3 USB 3.2 Gen2 ports (plus upstream) and an RJ45 port. An additional USB 3.2 Gen2 port with BC 1.2 capability and USB-C downstream port (3.2 Gen2, 15W charging) is located at the very bottom of the screen, for easy access from the front. KVM capability is offered and 2 x 9W speakers are included for potentially rich and powerful sound output.
