You’re here wondering if I should buy this Dell Ultrasharp 4K Monitor((UP3216Q)?

Or… you’re wondering if this monitor is worth ~$1,000?

How true are the colors?

Do you recommend it?

In this review, I will answer all of the above.  I’ve been a big fan of the Dell Ultrasharp series monitor.  In fact, I still have my 28 inch five-year-old Ultrasharp monitor to this day and it is still going strong.  Unfortunately, I have retired my old Ultrasharp to my wife and she is loving it!

Why did I retire my great monitor?  I’m glad you asked!  Well, I decided to upgrade my gaming rig and figure it’s probably a good time to upgrade my monitor to 4k resolution.  It didn’t take long, but I finally settled on a Dell Ultrasharp again.  For the folks who don’t like to read, you can watch my video below, enjoy!

Review

When I unboxed the monitor, everything was nice and snugged.  The packaging in the box made sure that it will prevent any types of damage while the monitor is en route.

Installation wise, I had no trouble installing the monitor to my Alienware gaming rig.  It was pretty much plug and play.

If you watched my video review, you probably heard me say this monitor feels just like home.  And I really mean it in a good way!  This monitor feels exactly like my older monitor but in 4k.  The color in the monitor are both saturated and vibrant.  It feels great!

I use this monitor for gaming only and I am loving every minute of it.  Not only the color is awesome, but it’s in 4K.

Do note, this monitor is in the $1000 price point, but you get what you pay for and it is worth EVERY penny in my opinion.

If you are an avid game or hardcore designer, I highly recommend this monitor due to its vibrant and saturated color.  If you’re just using it for work, sure, you can buy this monitor, but you’re probably not taking it to its true potential.  Akin to driving 25mph with a Ferrari.

If you’re using it for Word/Excel/Powerpoint, you can probably find a cheaper monitor than the Ultrasharp series, but I highly recommend this monitor if you’re using it for gaming and/or design work.
