One of Dell's 34-inch flagship monitors has just been treated to a pre-Black-Friday discount, with its price dropping from $900 to $704.99. This is one of the lowest tags ever attached to the U3417W which retailed at over $1,000 until this year. What that money will get you is a WQHD (3,440 x 1,440) screen with a 60Hz refresh rate and an extremely wide viewing angle of 178 degrees. Multiple HDMI and USB 3.0 connectors are also part of the package, as is an audio out port and a pair of surprisingly powerful 18W speakers.
As is the case with virtually every ultra-premium monitor on the market, the Dell U3417W is rather versatile in terms of adjustable height and tilt. Its impressive viewing angle is largely enabled by the fact that this monitor is of the curved variety and will hence do a tremendous job at filling your field of view, immersing you in work or entertainment whenever you sit in front of it. Dell also prides itself on the U3417W's color accuracy and claims its calibration techniques and hardware excellence allowed it to capture 99-percent of the sRGB spectrum. While hardly a gaming monitor for anyone interested in playing games at over 60 frames per second, the Dell U3417W is certainly a premium offering that will do a great job complementing your desktop PC and is a single-body alternative to less elegant dual-screen PC setups even without this deep discount it just received.Dell U3417W FR3PK 34-Inch Monitor - $704.99 (Amazon)
