Dell announced today that it is refreshing its lineup of UltraSharp monitors—part of the lineup, anyway—with new models arriving now and more trickling out through December.
The most mainstream of the big new introductions is probably the UltraSharp 24 USB-C Hub Monitor (U2421E), which is available to order starting today at $449.99. As the name suggests, it's meant to double as a hub, so it can deliver up to 90W of power to your connected laptop, and it can daisy-chain with up to two additional monitors.
Notably, the U2421E has a 16:10 aspect ratio as opposed to the usual 16:9 for a lot of monitors like this. The resolution is 1,920×1,200, and the refresh rate is 60Hz. Dell claims 99 percent sRGB coverage, a maximum brightness of 350 cd/m2, and a 1,000:1 typical contrast ratio. Ports include DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 1.4, USB-C, and USB.
