    Could it be better, just dive in that vast sea of pixels

    Take care of it so you don't get Quad-damage.

    @D749, What is your overall impression about it?

    Given is a 3840 x 2160, I hope Dell launches a 3840 x 2400 model in the future.

    16:10 is dead. You won't see 16:10 4K displays. 16:9 or 21:9 are likely the ratios you'll be seeing for now on.

    Overall I like it but the dead and bright pixels might kill it for me. I'm on my third display now due to dead and bright pixels. Most people probably wouldn't even noticed them but I can be picky at times - especially if spending $3,500 USD on a display. One thing I wish more display companies copied from Dell is the button and OSD setup - it's simply great. Dell also provides an application that allows you to control various display settings without having to actually touch the monitor. I really like that.

    I also prefer 16:10 but I agree with the above.

    I recommend staying away from this display or any other 4K display - at least for now. I went through 3 displays before I said screw it.

    However, I will say that physically speaking the UP3214Q is quite nice and the OSD is simply excellent. Dell also provides a nice tool called Dell Display Manager, which while buggy for me while in MST mode, was awesome, when it worked correctly, for controlling various features of the display from within Windows.

    Wow that sucks, sorry to hear that you had to return it 3 times, at least they made no fuss about the refund.

    I suppose that's one of the issues of LCD tech still, dead pixels plague most screens and as we get higher and higher resolutions it only become more of an issue and nobody seems to offer a zero dead pixel policy anymore

    Their return process was fairly painless. The bright side is that G-Sync displays are finally here. Time to try a few of those.

    Bad luck D749, at least you got the $ back which could have been a very painfull process dealing with certain other suppliers

    Maybe in a year or so when the tech is more mature might be the time to buy

    True. Dell has a great return and warranty program - at least that has been my experience.

    As some may know I went through three new Dell 4K (UP3214Q) displays. The number of pixel defects just didn't sit well with me considering the cost of the display. I also had a stand issue with one of the three displays. Eventually I had a full refund issued.

    This week a Dell VP contacted me directly to let me know that they would be sending me a brand new Dell 4K display, which I was told was specifically inspected for defects, for me to keep at no charge.

    I picked it up today. Normally they're not double boxed. This one looks like it was send directly from China to Dell at Texas and then to me.



    I have to give props to Dell - well done!
