Dell P2815Q 28-inch 4K Display Is Just $699 and Coming Out on January 23rd


Did you hear that Dell released a new Ultra HD “4K” 28-inch monitor at the 2014 Consumer Electronic Show for under $1K? We got a chance to visit with Dell and were able to see Dell 28 Ultra HD Monitor (P2815Q) in person and it looked great.  Dell claims that this is the industry’s most affordable 4K Monitor (3840 x 2160 resolution) when it will be released on January 23, 2014 for just $699. Not a bad price and it is backed by Dell’s Premium Panel Guarantee, which means you get 3 years advanced exchange service and a limited hardware warranty. Here are the full specifications for the Dell 28 Ultra HD Monitor P2815Q.


The monitor uses a Twisted Nematic (TN) panel that is sRGB compliant, so this P series monitor does not use an IPS panel like the higher end Dell Ultrasharp monitors. This is the key reason Dell was able to get the price on the monitor down so far. It looks like this panel runs at 3840 x 2160 at 30Hz, so those wanting to run 60Hz will have to drop down to 1920×1080. We’ve seen firmware updates bring 60Hz support to previous 4K displays, so this might be something that can be updated down the road.


The Dell 28 Ultra HD Monitor P2815Q features features height adjustment, tilt, pivot, and swivel. It also has multiple inputs for quick and easy connection to smartphones, tablets, laptops and PCs. The display has DisplayPort (v 1.2), DispayPort out (MST), 1 USB upstream, 4 x USB 3.0 downstream (including 1 USB charging port with BC1.2 compliance devices on back), Mini-DisplayPort, HDMI 1.4 (MHL). When it comes to power consumption you are looking at about 75 Watts during normal operation and less than 0.5 Watts in active-o mode.

Check out the pictures that we took of the new monitor below!

    has anyone actually confirmed by testing to see if it doesn’t actually support MST? Also their damn site keeps changing specs. At one point it said 60z through DP and it also said IGZO (IPS) but now they removed that icon on the main page. I am still waiting for a real review to confirm if it is TN/IGZO and 30/60Hz. MST. Dell site has changed several times so until i see someone actually confirm it i am keeping an open mind because everyone keeps basing this off of a spec sheet that has contradictions all over the place.

    Hmm the fact it apparently does UHD-1 screen size and yet there is NO official mention of it’s actually using that Rec. 2020 (UHDTV/UHD-1/UHD-2) color space needs clarifying please.

    is it (and indeed these other cheaper UHD displays) in fact using the mandated Rec. 2020 10bit real colour compliant out the box for UHD-1/UHD-2 display devices ?

    please confirm or state clearly it is NOT Rec. 2020 10bit real colour compliant but rather the old Rec. 709 (HDTV) and below pseudo color space

    “The Rec. 2020 (UHDTV/UHD-1/UHD-2) color space can reproduce colors that can not be shown with the Rec. 709 (HDTV) color space”


    The Rec. 2020 color space is supported by H.264/MPEG-4 AVC and High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC).[12][13][14] The Main 10 profile in HEVC was added based on proposal JCTVC-K0109 which proposed that a 10-bit profile be added to HEVC for consumer applications.[15] The proposal stated that this was to allow for improved video quality and to support the Rec. 2020 color space that will be used by UHDTV.[15]”

    haha gay, i fell better about my wqhd monitor knowing this can only run at 30hz @ uhd…

    Hope somebody reviews it side-by-side with that 39″ Seiki 4K TV/monitor. Even at this lower price point, why is this worth $200 more? $200 swivel hinge and USB hub?

    • basroil

      How about the fact it’s made with monitor grade components rather than low end TV ones?

    • Adam

      The only reason I don’t have that Seiki right now is because it only supports an older version of HDMI that’s limited to 30Hz.

      Also, I have no doubt that the Dell monitor will have superior backlighting and color response.

        So, I guess you won’t be getting this Dell either since it is only 30hz at 4k ?

      The display area is smaller, so you don’t need to move your head as much. That can be a plus for some people.
