This is a 1080p monitor, not 4K. Also, this is fake "Dell HDR," not HDR10.

I too questioned posting this as a "4K" monitor. However, after reading the Q&A section towards the bottom of the page, in addition to the specs Dell has listed, decided it was safe to post it as such.

If anyone here on SD happens to own this exact model # and can confirm for all of us, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, apologies for any confusion this may cause. Simply posting it according to the info Dell has listed and the buyer feedback section on the product page.

Unfortunately, the spec list is wrong. This is a 1920x1080 monitor.

EDIT: Now I'm not so sure. The documentation is confusing.

EDIT 2: I have a hypothesis--

In order to display Dell HDR, you must input a 4K (3840 x 2160) signal. The output/display will be in HDR, but the resolution will still be 1920x1080.
That's confusing.

EDIT 3: Further, you need a latest-gen Nvidia card or a very recent gen AMD card to get HDR anyway ( http://www.dell.com/support/artic...on?lang=en )

Thanks Smilie Unfortunately, I don't own this model myself, so I'll have to defer to you folks on this one.

Appreciate everyone lending a hand to clarify that. Sorry about that - it's just rather unclear from the way it's listed and discussed on their website. Fixed Smilie

One of three examples mentioning it has 4K from the Q&A section:
Quote :
Question:
  • "Max resolution? Max hz?"
Answer:
  • "if you turn on HDR Mode in your monitor settings it is. 3840 x 2160 @ 60hz if you don't have that on it is 1920 x 1080 @ 75Hz I don't why there saying that the max resolution is at 1920 x 1080 because I bought this monitor and I was messing with settings and I turned up the resolution to 4K"

Spoke to chat and after some waiting they confirmed it's an error. This is a 1080p monitor.

Not sure what that person in the answers section is seeing.​

Edit:

Manual: http://downloads.dell.com/manuals..._en-us.pdf

Edit2:

LOL even the manual lists both. Pages 6 + 9.

Good info. + Rep Thumbsup

I agree - this one's a bit of an oddity it seems. Even in that manual, it also states:

Maximum preset resolution
  • 1920 x 1080 at 60 Hz(VGA/HDMI1.4)
  • 3840 x 2160 at 60 Hz (HDMI2.0)
Confused laugh out loud

See my edits above.
My hypothesis is that this monitor requires a 4K, HDMI 2.0a input in order to display in Dell HDR. The output will be downscaled by the monitor to the panel's full resolution, 1920x1080.
(In effect, this is probably the worst monitor ever for gaming. You card gets to do all the hard work for 4K gaming and you don't even get to see the results!)

That makes sense. Though it's still weird that Windows would give a 4k option.

Anyway, another "too good to be true" moment Stick Out Tongue

Great teamwork, guys *internet high five*
