How many of us recall the infamous Dell UltraSharp 30? This has been one of the most legendary LCD monitors by Dell and the good news is that the company has finally decided to bring it back into action. However, let’s not expect to get the exact same thing as Dell is bringing out a different version of the older design.
The new U3023E model will still have a 16:10 monitor with a resolution of 2560×1600 but the overall design got a refresh. The monitor will have slim bezels and an overall slim build. The stand has been slightly redesigned, and the monitor now comes with a lighter color palette. With slight changes on the outside, we are more excited about the major changes which are inside. The display inputs come with HDMI 1.4 port, a DisplayPort 1.4, and a USB-C port with DP 1.4 Alt Mode as well as USB PD at 90 Watts.
The monitor comes with a USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) upstream port and a USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 downstream port with 15 W power delivery. Additionally, there are four USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 ports, with one of them supporting the Battery Charging 1.2 standard.
The RJ45 port can be used for Ethernet connectivity when it is used with a laptop. There is also a 3.5 mm audio output jack. The IPS panel has a 400 cd/m² brightness and a contrast ratio of 1000:1. On top of this, there is a 100 percent sRGB and 95 percent DCI-P3 color gamut. Since this monitor is targeted to be an office display unit, the refresh rate is still the same at 60 Hz and the response time is 8 ms, dropping to 5 ms in fast mode. The UltraSharp 30 has been priced at US$784.99.
