CES 2024 is coming up in a few days, but lots of tech companies are already making pre-CES announcements. One of those companies is Dell, and today the PC maker announced it will show off and release two new UltraSharp PC monitors designed to help reduce eye strain.
In a blog post, Dell stated the new UltraSharp 40 Curved Thunderbolt Hub Monitor and the UltraSharp 34 Curved Thunderbolt Hub Monitor have both received TUV Rheinland’s five-star eye comfort certification. This is a new standard for monitors that have passed tests that show the displays help to cut down on eye strain.
In the case of the new Ultrasharp monitors, the screens have 120Hz refresh rates and also have an ambient light sensor that changes the brightness and color temperature of the screen based on local light conditions. Both also have more advanced LED backlights that cut the amount of blue light from 50 percent to less than 35 percent.
The UltraSharp 40 Curved Thunderbolt Hub Monitor includes a 40-inch curved ultrawide display with a resolution of 5,120 × 2,160. Dell states:
This monitor goes above and beyond with its connectivity options, offering Thunderbolt 4 for single-cable convenience with up to 140W power delivery. It also supports high-speed wired Ethernet connectivity at 2.5 Gbps via RJ45, along with HDMI 2.1 FRL (Fixed Rate Link) and DisplayPort 1.4 for smooth image transmission, minimizing any loss in visual quality.
The smaller 34-inch Dell UltraSharp 34 Curved Thunderbolt Hub Monitor has a resolution of 3,440 × 1,440. It also has Thunderbolt 4 support, but only for up to 90W port delivery.
Enhancing Eye Health with the New UltraSharp Monitor
As we continue to innovate to provide the best viewing experience, we have also partnered with TUV Rheinland® in enhancing eye wellness. Dell’s UltraSharp monitors are the first to have TUV Rheinland® five-star eye comfort certification, a new industry standard for eye comfort to help reduce signs of eye fatigue. Dell was the first to meet this new industry standard by achieving three things:
- We doubled the refresh rate, going from a 60Hz to 120Hz refresh rate, to deliver smoother and sharper motion visuals.3
- We built in an ambient light sensor to automatically adjust screen brightness and color temperature according to ambient light condition. Recent studies show this can reduce the frequency of eye fatigue signs by 7% to 17% compared to a screen maintaining constant brightness.4
- We improved Dell ComfortView Plus by reducing harmful blue light exposures with more advanced LED backlight, going from 50% exposure to less than 35% exposure. Research shows this can reduce signs of eye fatigue by eight percent after 50 minutes of performing a search task.5
Precision, Productivity and Convenience
When it comes to tasks requiring pinpoint color accuracy, a monitor isn’t just a luxury—it’s a necessity for ensuring your work looks as vibrant and true-to-form as intended. This monitor boasts a 99% DCI-P3 / Display P3 color space, perfect for those color-critical tasks. Users can also easily calibrate the colors on their screen with Dell Color Management software.6
This monitor goes above and beyond with its connectivity options, offering Thunderbolt 4 for single-cable convenience with up to 140W power delivery. It also supports high-speed wired Ethernet connectivity at 2.5 Gbps via RJ45, along with HDMI 2.1 FRL (Fixed Rate Link) and DisplayPort 1.4 for smooth image transmission, minimizing any loss in visual quality. The UltraSharp monitor is presented in a premium platinum silver finish for a clean aesthetic, and its intuitively designed front-facing quick access ports make it easy to connect your external devices.
If you’re looking for a smaller size and different resolution display, the new Dell UltraSharp 34 Curved Thunderbolt™ Hub Monitor (U3425WE) will be available with WQHD resolution (3440×1440) and offers many of the same great features as the U4025QW including TUV Rheinland® five-star eye comfort certification, IPS Black technology and Thunderbolt 4 connectivity (up to 90W power delivery).
We have increased our commitment to more sustainable materials in both production and packaging processes. Made from 100% recycled and/or renewable content,7 the packaging used to protect the UltraSharp monitors brings us one step closer to meeting our ambitious 2030 Goals. Both the U4025QW and U3425WE monitors are made from 85% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic8 and 100% recycled aluminum.
These monitors also meet the latest environmental standards such as EnergyStar® and TCO Certified Edge and are EPEAT® Gold9 registered. Dell is an EPEAT Climate+ champion and has the industry’s widest portfolio of monitors10 achieving the EPEAT Climate+ designation, meaning these products have met the industry’s best practices for sustainability and emissions reductions.
