Dell has a good history of releasing kickass screens. Now the company's display unit is in the news again as it has rolled out the UltraSharp U3818DW. This is a 37.5" curved display with a 3840 x 1600 resolution. It's an 8-bit FRC IPS panel with 24:10 aspect ratio, 2300R curvature, 1.07 billion color support, 5ms gray-to-gray response time, and 350 nits brightness.

As it's aimed at business users, the screen lacks AMD FreeSync support but it is one of the few displays with a USB Type-C input. Dell is selling the screen for $1,499.
In a bid to better appeal to the target audience, Dell has managed to increase maximum brightness of its U3818DW to 350 nits (from 300 nits on competing monitors), added an antiglare coating, and also added support for Dell's Command remote management capability. Each screen is sRGB-calibrated to Delta E < 2 accuracy, which is important for those who work with color-managed content. Meanwhile, the monitor also technically supports the DCI-P3 color gamut, but only covers 78.1% of it.
