Dell recently introduced a new member in its Ultrasharp family of high-end monitors, the U3818DW . This monitor is quite unusual, because of a curved screen 37.5 inches and ultra- format 21: 9 we would expect a resolution of 3440 x 1440, and yet this model has the atypical resolution of 3840 x 1600 pixels. The Dell U3818DW mounts a 37.5-inch AH-IPS panel that has a 2300R curvature, with an aspect ratio that is not actually 21: 9 but 24:10 given its 3840 x 1600 pixel resolution. The panel has a refresh rate of 60 Hz with a response time of 8 ms GtG although it has “Fast” mode which in theory drops to 5 ms this value, providing a static contrast ratio of 1000 to 1 and angles 178 degree vision on both axes.
The panel is backlit by a WLED (white LED) panel with flicker free anti-blink technology that provides 99% of the sRGB color spectrum. The panel supports 10-bit color using an 8-bit FRC flicker technology, so it is not native. As a member of the Ultrasharp family, this new Dell monitor features a fully ergonomic base for tilt, swivel and height adjustment. In addition, it can be put and removed with just one button and supports VESA 100 anchorage.
As for the connection options, this Dell Ultrasharp U3818DW provides a Displayport 1.2 (HDCP 2.2) and two HDMI 2.0 (HDCP 2.2 also) for video, but also has a total of seven USB 3.0 ports, one of them reversible Type- C with fast charging option for mobile terminals and which in turn supports connection of a mini DisplayPort 1.2 port if you want. It also has a pair of stereo speakers of 9W RMS power as well as headphone output using a 3.5mm minijack. The monitor is already listed on the manufacturer’s website at a price of USD 1499.
