Big thanks to Dell Singapore for providing me with the review unit. This is the first time I’m using a 32-inch 4K monitor.

  • Thanks for your review… JUST GOT MINE. For those interested, I'm upgrading from the DELL U3216Q that I had for 3 years (previous 4K generation from DELL/same size) and now will be using the older one somewhere else. I wasn't expecting such an improvement but the colors are much more vivid and I can't see any pixelation. The text on white is much more clear and haven't noticed any light bleeding at the edges on regular use, but this reviewer is a Pro so go with him — I'm just saying you won't notice it unless the whole screen is completely black. This is definitely a top-of-the-line monitor. I use it mainly for work, everyday use (internet, music, you-tube) and multi-player gaming (not a Pro-gamer, just enthusiast) – and I can really notice the improvement. The bezels of the monitor are thinner and it just looks a lot more modern overall. Easy to adjust position and has lots of ports. So unless you're a professional graphics editor I'd say this is one of the best.

  • Great review. What monitor is the better one, the 27 or the 32 inch (in your line of work)?

  • one of the best and most useful reviews of a monitor I've ever seen, made after real usage for video and image editing, and covering also the issues like glare and blacklight bleed. Thank you so much.

  • I know this was 1 year ago, but regarding photoshop scaling on large resolution screen, try this: Right click on PS icon, proprieties/compatibility/change for all users/check Override High DPI scaling behavior. Should work on Win 10/64

  • Hi, Good review. Just wanted to ask your opinion on the best way to go between the dell u3219q and benq pd3220u. The dell is around £200 cheaper but from what i am reading a lot of reviewers are saying it only gets good after calibration which means having to factor a calibrator into the cost. The benq seems to be calibrated straight out the box. It will be used for graphics and 3d applications as well as being for entertainment – movies etc. What do you think is the best way to go? Im happy to go the extra 200 on the benq if it future proofs me more and is a better quality machine. But just wanted to get your thoughts.

  • A screen for $899? Did you say it's a general purpose one? Has the world gone mad? How is it so expensive?

  • Hi Teoh. Thank you for your video. It really helped me to buy this monitor. I bought it on Monday but I have some concerns.
    1- Backlight bleeding. This is really frustrating. I thought I didn't mind about it but it keeps me get annoyed.
    2- Screen burn-in. I was opened a WhatsApp Page about 4 hours but when I close the page and went to twitter I was still seeing the Whatsapp page on Twittter's solid blue color. By the way after closing it for 3 to 4 hours the WhatsApp Page went invisible from solid colors.

    What should I do about these concerns? Should I return the monitor or Should I keep it.

  • hey mate. nice video!….you can also make the icons and bar bigger on osx by the high resolution scale, just go to Finder and Show View Options (Command J) and there you can manualy rescale Text and Icons on the Desktop and Finder interface;)

  • Really great coverage, thank you! It would be great to start seeing 75-100hz refresh rates for office/productivity monitors of this size and up. 60hz is just getting old real fast for these large format high res displays.

  • Hi, i was looking to buy this monitor, but the light bleeding scared me, is it really that bad to the naked eye or it's just like any other IPS panel ?

  • Hi, I am between this three models Samsung JG50 27" 1440p, Samsung J590 32" 4k and a Lenovo P27H 27" 1440p. I will use it mainly for 3d rendereing and some photoshop. I need the colors to be accurate but not that much as a proffesional photographer. Also I want to see 1080p youtube videos sharper and more detailed. I currently have a 23" inch LG TN FHD. What is your recommendation?.

  • Hi Yi Chie, I understand the Dell U219Q has a built in LUT. I'm new to this; if you calibrate with your Spyder, will the monitor automatically store it in its LUT? And if you disconnect your monitor and connect it with another PC, will the monitor retain the same calibration?

  • Is there a similar dell monitor that you would say is better than this? Especially in black light bleed ? Color Uniformity

  • Hi, when you use mac with usb-c, does it support 4k 60hz?
    20:10 my finding is, your monitor actually support 4k 60hz, but macbook pro on usb-c does not support it. Macbook pro on displayport support 4k@60. You need to check monitor status about the actual resolution at runtime. So I want to confirm with you

  • Sorry but, you're 100% wrong about scaling within macOS.
    In fact, OSX was the first system that introduced scaling as that's what the "retina" screens are built around, i.e. 200% scaling where one pixel is represented by 4 physical pixels.
    Windows 10 does a better job at scaling at non even (so other than 200%) values because it smooths things out better, but it does a horrible job at scaling of UI, where in dialog boxes things can look like pile of shite at anything higher than 125%.

  • Hi Teoh, have you by chance come across a Lenovo Thinkvision 32inch display. They are supposed to be 100% Adobe RGB and 4k with thunderbolt connectivity. Cant find many reviews though.

  • About that Mac scaling – as far as I know it tells you resolution it will be emulating, but what it does is actually scaling image just as Windows does. Much better tho than Windows.
