Dell UP3017Q 30-inch Ultra HD Monitor Is A Gamer’s Delight But It’ll Cost You An Arm And A Leg

Dell sure makes some gorgeous displays, but the UP3017Q happens to be the company’s first ever OLED panel with a screen size of 30 inches. We will get to all the details first, but if you are interested in purchasing such an OLED display, then you should prepare your wallet for the news you’re about to read.

Dell UP3017Q Has An Extremely Fast Response Time But Its Retail Price Is A Whopping $4999

The major advantage of having an OLED screen is that the colors are going to appear sharper and vibrant and the display itself is going to consume less energy. Additionally, the incorporation of an OLED panel has also allowed the Dell UP3017Q to sport a thinner form factor than its predecessors and OLED screens have a natural advantage that while playing your favorite video games, those games will appear to run more fluidly.

One of the things that really raises the bar is the 0.1ms response time as well as a USB Type-C connector that can provide roughly 100W of power, and reach a maximum theoretical transfer speeds of 10Gbps, which is twice the maximum limit of USB 3.0. The monitor also delivers a cutting-edge typical contrast ratio of 400,000:1 and its 4K resolution will make the display ideal for both work and play.


We have listed all the specifications for you below, but featuring a retail price of $4999 is too steep, even for Dell. Heck, one could nab himself a very decent workstation for that price tag, but as OLED production reaches an all-time-high, we expect such displays are going to become cheaper in the future.
