Dell UltraSharp U3223QZ launched for as much as an Apple Studio Display
Dell has now made the UltraSharp U3223QZ available to purchase in the US, nearly five months after the company unveiled the monitor at CES 2022 in Las Vegas. In the meantime, Apple announced and started selling the Studio Display, a 27-inch and 5K monitor that received mixed reviews on account of its price and poor webcam. Unfortunately for the UltraSharp U3223QZ, Dell has price matched it with the Apple Studio Display, meaning that it costs US$1,599.99.
To recap, the UltraSharp U3223QZ has a 31.5-inch panel that relies on what Dell describes as 'IPS Black' technology. Setting the marketing aside, the UltraSharp U3223QZ should provide 2,000:1 contrast ratios, 8 ms GtG response times and 98% DCI-P3 colour space coverage. Like the Apple Studio Display, the UltraSharp U3223QZ peaks at 60 Hz, albeit at 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. In comparison, the Apple Studio Display has a 5,120 x 2,880-pixel native resolution.
Still, the UltraSharp U3223QZ has an adjustable 4K webcam with a Sony STARVIS CMOS sensor, plus numerous ports for connecting external devices. Specifically, Dell has included two DisplayPort 1.4 connections, an HDMI 2.0 port, dual USB Type-C ports, an Ethernet connection and four USB Type-A ports that operate at 10 Gbps. For reference, only one of the monitor's USB ports supports DisplayPort and USB Power Delivery at up to 90 W (USB PD).
