Dell's new ultrawide monitors are easy on the eyes
Two new ultrawide monitors from Dell have been announced that are designed to minimize eye strain
Dell has unveiled a pair of new ultrawide monitors that are, quite literally, easy on the eyes.
Dell’s 40-inch UltraSharp 40 Curved Thunderbolt Hub Monitor (U4025QW) and the 34-inch UltraShrap 34 Curved Thunderbolt Hub Monitor (U3425WE) both include a five-star eye comfort certification from TUV Rheinland, a new industry standard that helps to reduce signs of eye fatigue.
To achieve this new standard, Dell has doubled the refresh rate of its new monitors from 60Hz to 120Hz, built in an ambient light sensor to automatically adjust screen brightness and color temperature, and improved Dell ComfortView Plus by reducing harmful blue light exposure with a more advanced LED backlight.
