6 ultra hd 40-inch+ monitors review: monstrous monitors

Not every ultrawide is also suited for home use

Dell P4317Q

Dell's candidate is also based on a 43-inch ips-panel with ultra-hd resolution, but significantly more expensive at an average price of more than 1196 dollars, although you can order it for less with some search in our Price Comparison. For that price you get a 'real' monitor, with the panel attached to Dells known silver coloured base, although this is an XXL-version. It looks very impressive, and weighs more than 17 kilos.

The connectivity is also impressive: vga, two times hdmi 1.4, two times displayport 1.2 (one is mini), audio in- and outputs and a usb 3.0 hub with four downstream connectors. Dell has even built in two 8W speakers, which they do not do often. An rs232 serial port might be a bit strange, but it is intended for remote management.

Unfortunately the test results of the P4317Q are a bit disappointing. The basics are still in order with a maximum brightness of 430 cd/m² and a minimum of 36 cd/m²; the black value is on the high side and this is also reflected in the contrast, which is just below 1000:1. The large variation in uniformity is more disturbing, especially of white - the uniformity of black is better. The viewing angles are very good, but the color and grey error are inexcusably high, respectively 7, 3 and 9. There is also no sRGB mode with better quality. At least as annoying is the far too high colour temperature of 9879 K, which is also not adjustable. This results in a clear blue cast. Although the difference is not very large, the power consumption of this Dell is the highest in the test at 150 cd/m².
