Dell UltraSharp 40 Curved Thunderbolt Hub Monitor (U4025QW)

Jan 9, 2024 | Productivity

Dell’s UltraSharp 40 Curved Thunderbolt Hub Monitor (U4025QW) addresses eye fatigue from prolonged screen exposure. Aimed at content creators, data scientists, and engineers, this 5K monitor offers a 120Hz refresh rate, an LED backlight that reduces blue light exposure by 50%, and an ambient light sensor that adjusts brightness and color temperature in real-time. It has received a five-star eye comfort certification from TUV Rheinland.

In a departure from prevalent 60Hz productivity monitors, Dell extends the gaming-friendly 120Hz refresh rate, delivering a smoother visual experience while minimizing eye strain. The 40-inch monitor boasts a resolution of 5120 x 2160 and a peak brightness of more than 600 nits, certified with DisplayHDR 600. That brightness is comparable to Apple’s 27-inch Studio Display, which costs $2.300 with Nano-texture glass and a tilt- and height-adjustable stand. Unlike the Apple Studio Display, Dell’s Thunderbolt 4 port offers 140W power delivery, perfect for the 16-inch MacBook Pro, plus support for variable refresh rates through HDMI 2.1.

It is designed to cater to diverse user needs and features a built-in 2.5-Gbps ethernet port, DisplayPort 1.4, plus USB-A and USB-C ports providing up to 15W of power and 10Gbps of data transfer. Two computers can be connected simultaneously for maximum multitasking.

Priced at $2,400, the Dell UltraSharp 40 Curved Thunderbolt Hub Monitor (U4025QW) will be available February 27, 2024, and represents a step forward in productivity displays, combining high-resolution, cutting-edge gaming-like specifications and certified visual comfort.

Pricing: $2,400
