Dell today announced the expansion of its UltraSharp monitor lineup with a couple of new models most notable of which is what the company touts to be the world’s first 49 inch ultra-wide monitor. The curved monitor offers QHD resolution and ultra-wide views aimed at making multi-tasking a breeze.
It boasts 5120×1440 pixel resolution with a 3800R curvature, 100 percent sRGB support and 109 pixels per inch. It has all of the connectivity options that you would expect from a modern monitor such as HDMI, DisplayPort, and USB Type-C. There’s even KDM or keyboard, video, and mouse functionality.
What this means is that you can connect one machine to the monitor through USB Type-C and a second through HDMI or DisplayPort with a USB upstream. It will then allow you to use keyboard shortcuts through the Display Manager app to control both machines with just one keyboard and mouse.
This monitor obviously isn’t going to come cheap. Dell has priced the UltraSharp U4919DW at $1,500. That’s more than what an average consumer will be ready to pay for a monitor but it’s certainly not meant for that market. It’s aimed at professionals such as financial traders, bankers, professional creators, programmers, and engineers. They’re going to be the ones who get great mileage out of this product.
