That "budget" one sounds like a great option. I've been meaning to grab a monitor upgrade for quite a while, this hits the spot nicely.

There's a typo and misinformation in the article. First of all the size of the smallest screen is 23.8 inches. Also the 28 inch model is a P series so that is why it's alot cheaper than the smaller ultrasharp.

If there's a typo, it's not on my part. I quote Dell's official press release as emailed, which you can verify against Business Wire's published copy:

However, I note that Dell has now corrected the release - so I'll go update the article. Thanks for the heads-up!

It's a P-series rather than UP-series, yes, but it's still an UltraSharp: its official name, as stated in the article and confirmed in the updated press release, is the UltraSharp 28 Ultra HD Monitor.

LOL. Still rocking it like it's 2006 I see.

I have a 16:10 screen that's about a 26" but it came with an additional 256px on the horizontal so I've not lost any working space just gained a bit left and right. It's 99% a work machine so lots of working space is great, but it also means it's stretched ratio fits media perfectly.

The other two screens in my three screen setup are unfortunately just 16:10 rather than being horizontally extended so they have a little less working space. Never mind, one of them is up on end anyway...

10:16 now that's a lovely aspect ratio!

Don't really see the attraction of these personally, but I haven't seen a 4k screen in real life so who knows maybe it will click.

Also 16:10 is a nicer looking ratio to me (regardless of how good or bad it is for work or whatever else). Had my U27 for a while now and I still think it looks a bit thin.

Am I right in thinking that with a 4k resolution everything is much smaller and so you need to resize things to make them bigger and unless your software supports 4k would it not all look a lot more pixellated and blocky? Or does software such as MS Office scale up nicely?

Roughly speaking yes, what you're describing is the effect of having a high DPI monitor. Most cinemas are showing films in 4K just fyi and text there is fine because the screen is so huge and thus the DPI value is low.

4K at 24" is a bit too small for me, the 28" model sounds ideal though as 32" is massively expensive and I don't want to go for anything smaller than my current 27", the dpi value would still be pretty high at about 160 (equivalent to 1080p on a 13.3" laptop).

As for scaling, that's a trickier thing, some programs when upscaled lose all sense of formatting, others are fine and text just looks smoother, if it's just enlarging then you won't notice a difference between your current monitor and this one (it's not 640x480 so pixellation might be more noticeable, but say 1920x1080 on this screen... will just make it look pretty much like a native 1080p screen)

4K monitors were to be expected, as the 4K TV's are out and are this christmasses "great innovation" for TV's.

I understand 4K for a computer monitor, but not for a TV though...
For a TV, there's no content. Hell there's hardly any content for a 1080 TV, most TV-stations use 720.
Best chance is a BluRay, but hardly anyone uses it, and they're limited to 1080 as well.

Most Cinema's are showing 2K btw...at least in Germany.

Cool, we have to run GPUs in SLI again to use a monitor that is larger than 20". Just like the good ol' days of 2000.

Give amd and nvidia one year and we will be right back to one gpu is sufficient for one monitor.
Hopefully by then the monitors will have seen some pricedrops.

Oh brother. Films on actual film do not have a resolution, only when it is digitized does the engineer make a decision what resolution to step it down to.

Digital films are usually filmed at an ultra ultra high resolution and then, again, converted down to Low-Res like HD standards.

In any case I am looking forward to screens of this resolution. Maybe some of the negative nancies will realize that 1920x1080 is a pathetic and low resolution.
4k can not come soon enough.

3 of this 32 inch monitors sounds like a winner, along with 3 of the hottest GPUs available at the time.

Quadrupling the resolution is a nice start, having 3 of these bad boys is where its at!

It's about time to be honest this could make 2560x1600 cheaper as it's not the top dog anymore.

Not sure I would want to rock a 4k screen the cost of always having to get the latest sli gpu's to play games which lets be honest sometimes they are really not that great.
