Dell U3417W – High End Widescreen

A 34 inch widescreen is all about immersion, whether it’s in work or play. That’s exactly what the Dell U3417W offers — immense immersion paired up with an extremely high quality build for a top shelf ultra wide monitor.

Features

Uses ComfortView for eye comfort by preventing flicking, similar technology is being used by many gaming ultra wide monitor manufacturers now because it makes it easier to stare at the screen for long periods of time.

Remarkably, this screen can work two separate PCs simultaneously on a single screen, using Dell’s Easy Arrange and picture-in-picture features you can divide up your screen real estate pretty much any way you can imagine. The anti-glare comes standard, which is important considering the curve radius of the screen is so deep.Even more impressive, the 9W speakers (almost 2-3x as much power as used by many other monitors) provide impressive, crisp sound that you really don’t expect to get from a display.

The stand is 115mm height-adjustable, which isn’t radical motion, but isn’t bad for such an unwieldy and large display.  The fact this display offers over a billion collars makes it an excellent option for industry professionals and enthusiasts alike. With a billion collars, you can achieve more vivid colors and images than you’ll ever get on a more traditional monitor, enabling you to see your favorite  movies and games like you’ve never seen them before. And standard VESA mounting works.
