Dell’s U3224KB, the 6K 32-inch monitor it announced back at CES, is now on sale for $3,199.99. That’s more than $1,000 cheaper than Apple’s 32-inch $4,999 Pro Display XDR, which is also aimed at professionals with the same high-resolution 6K panel. But Dell’s monitor packs a host of other features like a built-in webcam, speakers, and KVM switch to allow it to work with two computers simultaneously. Dell’s price reveal coincides with the launch of a new 38-inch curved ultrawide display from the company.
Apparently, the specs of Dell and Apple monitors are not the same. Best of all, the Dell monitor is DisplayHDR 600 certified, which suggests a peak brightness in the region of 600 nits compared to the 1,600 nits of the Apple monitor. There is also no mention of any full local dimming technology with the Dell monitor, just an LG Display IPS Black panel.
But Dell has thrown a kitchen sink’s worth of features into the U3224KB in an attempt to make it a one-stop-shop productivity accessory. There’s a built-in 4K HDR webcam, dual 14W speakers, echo cancellation mics, a bevy of USB-C and USB-A ports, and a Thunderbolt 4 connector that can deliver 140W of power to a connected laptop. There is also the ability to connect two computers and control them both with a mouse and keyboard thanks to a built-in KVM, and the content from two machines can be displayed simultaneously.
Yes, the result is a monitor with a large bezel, and its refresh rate sits at 60Hz. But if the combined specs are enough for your needs, the Dell UltraSharp 32 6K Monitor (U3224KB) makes a strong argument for packing more PC accessories into one unit.
Along with this, Dell also announced the UltraSharp 38 Curved USB-C Hub Monitor (U3824DW), a 37.5-inch display with a resolution of 3840 x 1600. There is no built-in webcam with this model, but it still offers it has built-in KVM to control two PCs at once, and up to 90W charging for the connected laptop. It will be available for purchase on June 22 for $1,529.99.
