With the popularization of the 27-inch monitor and the 2560×1440 dpi resolution and the recent jump to the UHD (3849×2160 dpi) which dominate over the 32-inch monitors, the humble 30-inch monitor using the 16:10 format seems to be forgotten. The Dell UP3017 (must not be confused with the so different UP3017Q) will be a great news for those who yearn to see again a 30-inch monitor in 16:10 format.
As a member of the “ultrasharp premium”series, this may be seen as a big brother for the Dell UP2716D but with some remarkable differences (apart from the screen size obviously). A difference is that the bezels are quite thicker and “single stage”(it is to say, a bezel covers the outer edge of the panel), something that will be determined by the panel in use. The touch-sensitive buttons were also removed in favor of the tactile buttons placed in the bottom of the frame. The feet of the bracket is totally ergonomic, something that Dell’s designers have maintained. This offers an adjustment of the inclination, the height and the rotation of the monitor’s screen.
A IPS panel is used with a refresh rate of 60Hz, likely this a part coming from LG Display. This offers a screen resolution of 2560×1600 pixels (16:10), a specific static contrast ratio of 1000:1, 350 cd/m² of typical maximum luminance and horizontal and vertical viewing angles of 178°. a matte anti-reflective screen surface, likely a matte solution for the light as it is seen in the latest alternatives of 27″ monitor of this manufacturer. The panel supports the 10 bits color representation with the use of a GB-LED backlight (or similar) that is capable of providing a 99% sRGB coverage and 99% Adobe RGB coverage.
The monitor comes calibrated from the factory, with Delta E error correction.
Monitor ports include 2 USB 3.0 ports in the back and 2 in the left side( 4 in total – 2 of which also offer 1.2 fast charges BC). The remaining ports, located on the back, include; 2 HDMI 1.4, DP 1.2 in port, DP 1.2 in and out ports (MST for the connection in series). All of the digital ports are compatible with HDCP 1.4.
