Dell’s latest UltraSharp displays feature fast 120Hz screens. Dell has introduced four new UltraSharp monitors, which have the potential to be good gaming displays as well as play to the brand’s usual strength of providing colour-accurate work panels.
Dell’s latest UltraSharp displays feature fast 120Hz screens
The two 27-inch monitors have 1440p resolutions, while the other two 24-inch monitors have 1080p resolutions. They all have IPS LCD panels with refresh rates of 120Hz, which is double the 60Hz that Dell has traditionally given with its UltraSharp models.
While 120Hz monitors have traditionally been popular among gamers, who stand to benefit the most from a screen that updates twice as fast as a standard model, Dell is positioning the faster refresh rates in these UltraSharp models as part of a suite of features designed to improve visual comfort and reduce eye strain.
In addition to the faster refresh rates, Dell claims the monitors emit significantly less “harmful blue light” than prior models and include built-in ambient light sensors that scan your environment and change the monitor’s brightness and colour tone as needed.
The Dell UltraSharp 27 Monitor (U2724D) and the Dell UltraSharp 27 Thunderbolt Hub Monitor (U2724DE) are the two 27-inch monitors. Both have 16:9 LCD panels that cover 98 percent of the DCI-P3 colour gamut, but only the latter offers a Thunderbolt 4 connector for charging a compatible laptop with up to 90W of electricity. Both monitors include a variety of USB-C and USB-A connectors, as well as DisplayPort 1.4 and an HDMI 2.1 port with VRR capability.
Similarly, the two 24-inch monitors — the Dell UltraSharp 24 Monitor (U2424H) and the Dell UltraSharp 24 USB-C Hub Monitor (U2424HE) — are separated by one featuring a USB-C port capable of carrying video and data and providing up to 90W of charge. These are similarly IPS LCD monitors with a 16:9 aspect ratio, however, they are 1080p and their HDMI connections are stated as version 1.4, with no mention of VRR capability.
In addition to these 120Hz panels, Dell has introduced a new trio of video conferencing monitors, each with a huge forehead bezel that houses dual speakers, microphones, and 2K webcams. The 24- and 27-inch variants have 16:9 aspect ratios and resolutions of 1080p and 1440p, respectively, while the bigger 34-inch model has an ultrawide 21:9 1440p resolution.
While Dell currently sells lots of monitors with refresh rates beyond 60Hz, it’s encouraging to see support for high refresh rates expanding in its UltraSharp range for individuals looking for a panel that can be used for both work and pleasure.
Dell’s new monitors will be available in the coming weeks, with prices ranging from $379.99 for a 24-inch 120Hz model to $949.99 for a video conferencing ultrawide model.
