Today Dell is taking the wraps off of a new display to their lineup. It’s fair to say that everyone loves hearing about 4K, curved panels, Freesync, G-Sync, and high color gamuts, but for most of us space and budgetary restrictions mean that we tend to buy more of the lower cost devices than the rest. Dell offers a range of displays, which include the higher end devices like the Dell Ultrasharp 27” 5K model but they also offer lower cost offerings like the 4K 60 Hz P2415Q, but even that can stretch may budgets too far. Dell is currently the number one supplier of monitors worldwide, and they have achieved this in part by offering such a wide range of devices and price points. Dell is launching the P2416D today, which is a 24 inch Quad HD (2560x1440) model.

Dell does not say if the display is IPS or VA, but that it has “Consistent colors from virtually any angle” so it will likely be one or the other. Update: thanks to chlamchowder for finding it on an international Dell site, it is an IPS display - Product page is here. It will have 99% of the sRGB color space covered, which is normal in one of Dell’s mainstream offerings, and most people do not require more than sRGB anyway. If they do, they know they need to spend a bit more.

Even though it is a mainstream priced display, it does not lack on the stand, which features pivot, swivel, tilt, and height adjustment. It also has a good selection of inputs and outputs, with four USB 2.0 ports, VGA input, DisplayPort 1.2 input, and HDMI 1.4 input.

Dell also offers a free panel exchange if there is a bright pixel discovered within the three year limited hardware warranty.

The P2416D goes on sale at the end of April in the Asia Pacific and European regions, and in May in the U.S. The Dell P2416D will be priced at $369.99.

    I'm waiting for someone to launch a 32/33" 5k panel. I want something that's just as tall as the 30" 1600p monitor that will be displaced from the center of my desk to one side of the new beast.

    Dell has the P2715Q, a 27" 4K IPS-style panel. While its not in the UltraSharp line (but rather Professional), it otherwise seems to fit your criteria.

    Oh wow, that's actually the first 27 or 28" 4K IPS monitor I've seen. I guess a panel does exist. I'm interested to see what the color accuracy is like on this monitor, but I'm guessing it probably isn't factory calibrated like the UtraSharp's.

    That's pretty much what the "P"/Professional lineup is. Though not all UltraSharps are factory calibrated.
  • dragonsqrrl - Monday, April 6, 2015 - link

    That's a relatively recent change though. Dell's Professional lineup used to use TN panels.

    Dell has had a 27" 4K for a while. I don't think they'll stop making a 27" 4k for years and years to come. I fully expect to continue to find 27" 4k in 2025.

    I mean, I run the 15.6" 2880x1800 panel in my rMBP 1:1 sometimes, but I'm also 20 years old and crazy.

    1440P in 24", very nice. Just about every other 1440P panel I've seen is 27", which is just a little big for my tastes. And the ergonomics of Dell's prosumer/professional displays are second to none- the pan/tilt/swivel base on their x24xx series just blows everything in a similar price point out of the water. Inclusion of a USB3 hub is nice too.

    I just hope that Dell's gotten their issues with DisplayPort sorted. Both my current UP2414Q and my previous P2414H suffer from failure to wake from sleep and sometimes even signal dropouts during use when DP1.2 is enabled. Not a big deal on the 1080P display, but giving up MST and 60hz on the 2160P '14Q is unacceptable. So instead of I have to expect to power cycle the display a few times whenever my computer wakes from sleep. If the ergonomics and IQ weren't so fantastic I'd have given up on Dell. Good on them putting 1440P IPS in 24" though.

    I think you should re-evaluate your tastes is 27" is too big.
  • chlamchowder - Monday, April 6, 2015 - link

    How can you ever tell anyone to re-evaluate his/her tastes?

    I for one agree with KateH - 27" is a bit too big for 1440p. Higher pixel density makes everything look better, and a 24" monitor takes up less space on the desk. With a smaller screen, your eyes also don't search around as much, which is nice for gaming.
