Correction: the Dell press release said this was the U3431WE but there was a typo in there and it is actually the U3421WE. Updated throughout.
Dell have announced a new model in their popular UltraSharp range. The U3421WE is a 34″ ultrawide screen aimed primarily at productivity and office uses. It includes a 3440 x 1440 resolution, built in KVM switch, PiP/PbP capabilities and a “productivity hub” offering RJ45 and USB type-C connectivity.
Crafted with a premium platinum silver finish, this monitor features a 3-sided narrow bezel, and an elegant cable management system that hides cords within the monitor riser. Navigate the menu and adjust screen settings with the easy-to-use joystick control.
Spec wise the 34″ ultrawide IPS technology panel has a 1900R curvature and offers a 3440 x 1440 resolution, 8ms G2G response time (normal mode), 60Hz refresh rate, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 300 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 10-bit colour depth and a wide gamut backlight covering 95% DCI-P3 (~125% sRGB).
The screen comes factory calibrated in the sRGB emulation mode to a dE of <2. For connectivity there are 2x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0, 1x USB type-C, 4x USB ports and RJ45 port and an audio output. The stand offers tilt, height and swivel functions.
With connectivity options like RJ45 and USB-C, your monitor serves as a productivity hub that delivers stable Ethernet1 and up to 90W of power to your laptop — all in a clutter-free setup. The intelligent Auto KVM feature detects the latest connected PC and seamlessly switches controls over. View content from both PC sources with PBP (Picture-by-Picture) and PIP (Picture-in-Picture), and use builtin KVM (Keyboard, Video and Mouse) to control both PCs with a single keyboard and mouse. 2x 5W speakers are integrated as well.
The UltraSharp 34 Curved USB-C Hub Monitor U3421WE is available on Dec. 1, 2020 worldwide starting at £925 GBP.
