Dell teased an “under $1,000” 28-inch 4K monitor last month, and today at CES 2014, Dell came through. And the display carries a very attractive price tag of just $699.
The P2815Q packs an IPS LED display will have a full 3840 x 2160 4K resolution. It launches globally on January 23. Dell hasn’t yet discussed things like refresh rate or range of inputs (I’m sure DisplayPort is a given), but they do promise the same “screen performance” as the new UltraSharp 32 and UltraSharp 24 Ultra HD monitors.
The monitor will include an ability to pivot to portrait mode, and will have a range of adjustable viewing angles and heights.
Dell’s announcement follows other announcements earlier this week from such companies as ASUS, Lenovo, and budget maker Seiki.
The new, lower-priced monitors will certainly be a welcome sight for new Mac Pro owners, as Apple’s new flagship Mac boasts dual graphics cards capable of driving up to three 4K displays at once. The MacBook Pro that is currently on the shelves will also drive a 4K display, via it’s Thunderbolt 2 port.
Apple has yet to debut their own 4K display, instead offering Mac Pro buyers the option of a Sharp 4K display for a $3,600 add-on cost.
