Dell just announced the UltraSharp 49 Curved USB-C Hub Monitor. The accessory features a 32:9 display that can be split into two 27-inch screens that sit side-by-side. The monitor can also act as a USB-C hub, which should reduce clutter on your desk while still allowing you to connect all of your accessories to your PC.
The Dell UltraSharp 49 Curved USB-C Hub Monitor has an IPS Black panel with a 2,000:1 contrast ratio. The company highlights that figure to be twice as high as the contrast of normal IPS displays.
A wide range of connectivity options, including several USB-C ports, USB-A ports, and an Ethernet connection, are part of the monitor’s design.
Dell positions the UltraSharp 49 Curved USB-C Hub Monitor as a device for “financial traders, engineers, and data analysts.” Its 60Hz refresh rate should be just fine for general work and productivity, but those hunting for the best gaming monitor should look elsewhere.
