Dell has been responsible for making some of the best high-end monitors for years now. It is trusted by creative professionals that need accurate colours, razor-sharp resolutions, and true high definition in larger and widescreen monitor formats. Similarly, by gamers that need superfast response time and unparalleled detail – Dell has hit another home run with the Dell UltraSharp U4919DW 49″ monitor curved monitor.
Let’s take a little bit deeper into everything that it has to offer.
In the world of high-performance monitors, you almost always get the most bang for your buck, and the best value is in a 27-inch monitor (with 27-inch QHD monitors ranking right up there amongst the best of the best).
These monitors offer super high pixel density levels, great features, and a beautiful widescreen layout that gives you extra real estate to use much in any and every way you see fit.
Well, the new Dell UltraSharp U4919DW 49″ monitor takes two of those 27-inch monitors and slaps them together in one seamless, ultra-widescreen environment. The U4919DW is one of the best monitors money can buy today.
Featuring IPS/W LED edge array technology, this screen allows for maximum resolutions of 5120 x 1440 all running at 60 Hz with 109 PPI across the board. That isn’t quite as responsive as some of the gaming-specific monitors you’ll find on the market today (monitors that offer 120 Hz refresh rates). Still, for everyone else, you’ll never see the difference.
Display Port and HDMI 2.0 connectivity options are available, with USB input options built right in as well.
The monitor itself is pretty big and pretty beefy, measuring in at 47.8″ x 18.1″ x 21.7″ with a depth of 9.9 inches and it’s going to weigh in at just slightly under 40 pounds (37.9 pounds to be specific). That’s nearly 4 feet wide of screen real estate you’ll have available at your fingertips – giving you an almost infinite amount of space to work with.
Unsurprisingly, the engineers at Dell have loaded this 49-inch widescreen monitor with the latest and greatest screen technology available – including IPS/W LED technology that takes the visuals this screen makes possible to entirely new heights.
The IPS configuration gives you the best viewing angles possible, incredibly important for photographers, videographers, and graphic designers as well as other creatives that want the most accurate colour represented on their screen right out of the box.
Dell has a legendary reputation for colour accuracy and uniformity throughout the display, and you’ll be blown away by what the Dell UltraSharp U4919DW 49″ monitor looks like the first time you fire it up – and even more so when you run through the calibration process.
The overall contrast ratio of this set up sits at 1160:1, which isn’t the highest end of IPS panels but it is right up there near the best of the best. There are maybe a handful of panels (much smaller panels, it’s important to note) that offer a bit more contrast but we are talking about really minor differences here.
Response time is rock solid (ranking right up there with the best monitors in the business and certainly the best at this size) and input lag isn’t going to be an issue either. It’s not ideal for gamers that the monitor tops out at 60 Hz refresh rates with about 7 ms of input latency – but most people aren’t going to notice any issues whatsoever.
When you get right down to it, the new Dell UltraSharp U4919DW 49″ monitor is far and away one of the most impressive computer monitors ever produced.
Sure, it’s going to set you back a pretty penny, but you’re going to get all of the functionality and utility that dual razor-sharp 27-inch monitors bring to the table in a single, frameless configuration – as well as some other cool features and functions that only this Dell monitor offers.
The Dell UltraSharp U4919DW is worth a look if you’re in the market for a serious upgrade and want to get your hands on the latest and greatest ultra-wide monitor technology. With four feet of screen real estate when you fire your computer up, the Dell UltraSharp U4919DW 49″ monitor is the way to go.
