It's not easy to make a splash in tech news when you're going up against a major processor microarchitecture release like Haswell-E, though Dell managed to do just that by unveiling its uniquely redesigned Alienware Area 51 desktop yesterday. Interestingly, that wasn't the only thing Dell had up its sleeve. Mentioned almost as a side note in the press release is the unveiling of what Dell claims is the industry's first 34-inch curved monitor. Dell's new UltraSharp 34-inch (U3415W) display boasts an ultra-wide 21:9 with a curved panel and WQHD 3440x1440 resolution. That's plenty of real-estate for... Read more...
At CES 2014, Dell assumed a much lower profile than they had in previous years for the show. We've seen Dell occupy entire top levels of swank, high-end hotels and invite artists and entertainers to show off their wares. No longer beholden to stockholders and analysts, since Michael Dell took the company back private last year, Dell was setup efficiently in a conference block area of the Venetian at CES this year. However, Dell still managed to make a splash with a couple of products that the HotHardware team unanimously felt were some of the "best of show" in our humble, expert opinions. The first...

The welcome onslaught of 4K is coming, and Dell is getting into the game with a line of Ultra HD monitors for consumers, power users, and business pros alike. There are three models for the time being, one each at 32-, 28-, and 24-inches. “We are excited to announce Ultra High Definition monitors in sizes and price points that will be compelling to customers seeking higher resolution,” said Bert Park, Dell vice president and general manager, Displays and Client Peripherals, in a press release. All three monitors include Dell’s service and warranty coverage, including the Dell... Read more...
Dell refreshed its UltraSharp monitor line with updated models that are better-suited to “color-critical” tasks than previous models. That’s good news for the graphic designers and other creative types, but Dell didn’t forget the rest of us: there’s a new ultra-wide monitor aimed at multi-taskers who want room for all their open windows without a dual-monitor setup. Dell's 30-inch UltraSharp U3014 with PremierColor display. Anyone involved in creating graphic content is a target for Dell’s new UltraSharp with PremierColor line. According to Dell, the colors are... Read more...
There are two types of power users on this planet, and they consist of those who use a 30-inch monitor, and those who don't. The latter far outnumber the former, but thanks to a number of factors, this particular digital divide is growing smaller by the day. For one, 30-inch monitors are somewhat more affordable compared to a few years ago, at least in the sense that the average Joe doesn't have to sell a kidney to come up with the scratch for one (except for teens, who are more interested in trading body organs for iPads, anyway). Of course, if you're reading this, then you've probably already... Read more...

Dell’s lineup of flat panel displays have proven themselves to be reliable, stylish, and typically right on par price-wise with some of the most inexpensive LCD monitors on the market. They’ve delivered exceptional bang for the buck, and throughout the years, they’ve managed to improve the quality of the screens and the overall feature sets while overall prices have gone down. While this is also true for the rest of the monitor industry, Dell has retained their reputation for reliability, which still sticks with them today. Sure, Dell displays don’t have the raw sexiness of Apple’s Cinema series... Read more...
We’re willing to bet that many of you have wildly varied opinions of Dell. Some no doubt consider them a huge, monolithic corporation who pushes out generic computers without a soul; while others consider them to be pioneers of the low-cost PC movement, who (almost) single-handedly made computers available to nearly every price point. No matter what your opinion of Dell as a company is, it is difficult to find many people in IT circles who dislike their monitor division. Dell’s lineup of flat panel displays have proven themselves to be reliable, stylish, and typically right on par price-wise... Read more...
Today Dell quietly introduced the new UltraSharp 2408WFP 24" widescreen flat panel display, as you can see it is already available for sale on Dell’s site.  Like the 3008WFP we evaluated here, the 2408WFP supports DisplayPort connectivity which will become increasingly more common as the next generation of graphics cards roll in.  DisplayPort isn’t the only connectivity option with this monitor, however, as is evident in the picture below... The 2408WFP's input options The Dell 2408WFP features HDMI, DVI, VGA, component, S-Video and composite video connections, in addition to a 9-in-2... Read more...
This morning we’re ringing in the new year with a special treat.   We’ve taken Dell’s brand new UltraSharp 3008WFP for a spin around the block and we think you’ll be interested in seeing how she handled.  Here's a snip from the piece..."It's easy to see where Dell was going with the introduction of their new UltraSharp 3008 WFP 30" LCD display.  Calling upon the input received from previous 30" panel incarnations and marrying these feature requests in with new technologies like a wider color gamut and the bleeding-edge of display interface technologies.  As the first DisplayPort-enabled...

Like high-end graphics cards setup in multi-GPU configurations, terabyte desktop drives, and 3GHz quad-core processors, 30-inch wide screen LCDs cater to what we like to call the "enthusiast" niche.  And though this niche obviously drives lower volume demand versus the mainstream, you have to remember that the enthusiast end-user is a very influential segment of the market, often times assisting in the definition of what will become mainstream technology tomorrow.  Not to mention 30 inches of screen real-estate is a professional workstation designer's nirvana, so perhaps...

"Today, we have our take on Dell's new UltraSharp 3007WFP-HC, a 92% color gamut capable LCD monitor. With a full thirty inches of screen real estate and a new W-CCFL (wide cold-cathode florescent lighting) backlight, the new HC revision of the 3007WFP is targeted at increasing image quality in an LCD that has already earned high marks in the industry."

When you think of the "ultimate computer upgrade", visions of powerful graphics cards, a blistering fast CPU, a spacious-high density hard drive or perhaps another Gig or two of memory to feed your ever-hungry OS might come to mind.  On the surface, these are all very reasonable options, and depending on your specific usage model, indeed they all might offer significant value, enhancing your overall computing experience.  Though we would offer a different perspective perhaps. If you haven't recently considered the screen you're looking at all this wonderful new technology... Read more...
Iwill ZPC64 Review @ AMDZone: "We have been testing Iwill boards since their early VIA Socket 462 offerings, and to tell you the truth we were a bit surprised to see them jump into the small form factor crowd. They did with a lineup that has certainly been different than just the normal bread box style solution. Amongst their most interesting offerings is the very small ZPC64 which at a mere 75mm wide still manages to fit a power AGP video card in it. Before we get to our testing of the ZPC64 lets look at the full specifications." Creative Xtreme Fidelity (X-Fi) @ CoolTechZone.com: "It's... Read more...
