Dell’s UltraSharp 49 ultrawide monitor.
It’s like accepting a dual-monitor bureaucracy in one device.
Dell’s UltraSharp 34 monitor.
The UltraSharp 49 is Dell’s big boy adviser and the UltraSharp 34 is its analogously all-embracing little brother. They admeasurement in at a wide-but-not-overbearing 49 and 34 inches, respectively, abstinent diagonally. The 49 maxes out at a 5,120 x 1,440 resolution with a 60Hz brace rate, while the 34 does 3440 x 1440 additionally at 60Hz.
As you may accept noticed, the 49-inch has a 32:9 aspect arrangement that makes it advanced and narrow, about basic two 27-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) displays abutting seamlessly into one. In fact, in accession to application this ultrawide as a single, seamless “dual” adviser for one computer, you can use Dell’s Picture-by-Picture affection to breach the adviser in bisected and affectation two abstracted computers side-by-side. You can alike bandy your abrasion and keyboard amid them via Dell’s congenital KVM action and use hotkeys to activate the bandy on Windows machines.
The 34-inch has this aforementioned functionality in its 21:9 aspect ratio, but application two computers on one 49-inch awning is decidedly beneath awkward than on a 34, admitting this action is absolutely accessible on either display. Both monitors accept two HDMI ports, one DisplayPort, at atomic four USB 3.0 after ports (the 49-inch has five), two USB 3.0 upstreams, and USB-C with ability commitment to allegation your device.
They can do for gaming too, admitting 60Hz is the brace amount cap in all resolutions, which ability not cut it for hardcore players.
If you’re a MacBook user, it seems you’ll accept to use a anthology with a non-Intel detached GPU to appropriately configure the 49’s resolution to its 5,120 x 1,440 max. Otherwise, you’re ashore at 3,840 x 1,080 which fudges the accurateness a bit, admitting it’s still absolutely accessible and accessible to get acclimated to. Neither the HP Spectre Elite x360 nor the Dell XPS 13 I activated had these issues, announcement altogether crisp, full-resolution adumbration after any fuss.
Furthermore, with Windows PCs, you can additionally use Dell’s software to abuse assertive things, like ambience up hotkeys for the KVM and ensuring that all your accessible windows align aloof as you had them anniversary time you bung and unplug your computer. While the aloft action is Windows exclusive, the adviser seemed to bethink window arrange aloof accomplished on my Mac after Dell’s Affectation Manager software.
Still, alike with the hardly beneath resolution displayed from my 13-inch MacBook Pro, the acutely accessible admeasurement of these monitors is a admirable aid to productivity, while their controls and adaptability are so automatic and quick that it’s adamantine for me to brainstorm activity aback to a smaller, dual-monitor setup.
Competitors like the Philips Brilliance 499P9H, while additionally all-embracing and nice to attending at, don’t accept the diminutive controls to acclimatize this affectation appropriately in altered lighting scenarios that we so accepted on the Dells. Furthermore, cable administration on this archetypal is poor and the airheaded are frustratingly unintuitive. It’s been months and I still never bang the buttons I intend to, due in allotment to there actuality no beheld representation on the screen, but the blueprint does you no favors either.
If you’re in the bazaar for a 49- or 34-inch ultrawide, Dell’s versions won’t let you down.

We don’t apprehend anyone to absolutely do this, but hey, it’s an option.
With abounding of the aforementioned appearance we adulation from Dell’s 49- and 34-inch arced monitors, the U2720QM offers you all that advantage in a abate 27-inch flatscreen package. It doesn’t accept the “picture-by-picture” approach which allows two abstracted computer inputs, as the bigger ultrawides do, but at this admeasurement that wouldn’t be the greatest acquaintance anyway.
Otherwise you still get analogously automatic menus, brittle account quality, and awful customizable blush profile, as able-bodied as options to affectation through DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0, or USB-C with ability delivery.
If USB-C adequacy and charging your accessory through the adviser aren’t important to you but a PBP approach is, again the latest Dell S2721QS is your abutting best best at 27 inches and about $200 less. Thanks to their abate size, they clothing best any desktop breadth and can additionally circle so the awning can be acclimated angular on their included stands.
