The queue of the event with which DELL presented the news relating to the renewed series of Precision and Latitude notebooks also brought to the fore many accessories, including speakerphones, sound bars, monitors, dockstations and active pens.
Recently, DELL held an event to present several spring hardware innovations, including Precision workstations, and Latitude laptops, to which in the last place were added (also in this case in the absence of prices in euros) also many accessories for the productivity of professionals.
Starting from the monitors, DELL presented a new series of UltraSharp professional displays, starting with the U3223QE and U2723QE: divided by diagonal, 27 and 32 inches, the two monitors adopt for the first time 4K combined with IPS Black technology (super black deep and contrast at 2000: 1), lend themselves to being placed side by side (narrow frames, viewing angles of 178 ° in v / o), ensure excellent color gamut coverage (100% on sRGB and Rec. 709, 98% on DCI- P3), and low GTG response times (from 5 in fast mode to 8 ms in normal mode), deserving the VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification.
To improve comfort, they bring many new features into the field: we start from the ComfortView Plus visual optimizations to get to the stand adjustments (inclination, rotation, height up to 150 mm), passing through the PBB functions (contents of two different sources in two halves of the side-by-side screen) and PIP (a window with content from a second PC). In terms of ports, attesting to the quick-access front ones, the array of the two UltraSharp monitors offers a USB 3.2 2a gen Type-A for the downstream (at 10 Gbps), Display Port 1.4 with HDCP protocol and support for the Display Stream Compression, one RJ45 for Ethernet, and USB Type-C with 90W charge.
The same value as response times is also in vogue in the intermediate DELL UltraSharp 30 USB-C Hub U3023E: the latter adopts a panel in 16:10 from 30 “resolved at 2560 × 1660 pixels, therefore in WQXGA, with the long uses benefited by ComfortView Plus, and very good visibility when exposed to light sources (350 nits of brightness, 1000: 1 of contrast). Color coverage is always good (95% for DCI-P3, 100% for sRGB, 1.07 billion colors represented), as are GtG response times (5 to 8 ms depending on mode)
Connectivity here is nothing short of breathtaking and include RJ45 for Ethernet, four USB 3.2 2nd gen Type-A with 10Gbps data transfer (one with 1.2 battery charging), a 3.5 mm jack, a USB 3.2 gen2 Type- C with upstream at 10Gbps, a Type-C with Power Delivery at 90W and Display Port 1.4 with DSC, an HDMI and a Display Port (both 1.4 with HDCP 1.4 anti-copy). In this case, convenience does not only include all the adjustments of the stand or the PiP and PBP functions already seen, but also the KVM switch, which allows you to manage multiple PCs with a single set of monitor, keyboard and mouse, and synchronization between the connected displays of the OSD settings (on screen-display).
In addition to the monitors, DELL has explained its support to professionals as well with other accessories, on the audio side. In this case, the SP3022 has arrived, a speakerphone with variable frequency response (90Hz-20KHz for music or 120Hz-7KHz for conferences), total power of 3.2w (two 1.6W speakers each), and single omnidirectional microphones. . The SB522A soundbar, complete with a USB Type-A port, incorporates 35 x 16 mm speakers that guarantee 4.5W total output power and 180Hz-20KHz frequency response.
There was no shortage of dockstations. Specifically, three of them were presented at the event: the DELL Dual Charge Dock 12W is a first time for the American giant and presents – in addition to the many ports it provides (USB Type-C with 15W charge, HDMI 2.13 for display 4K HDR @ 144 Hz, DisplayPort 1.4, a poker of USB Type-A up to 4.5 W) – the possibility, resting the phone or earphones on it, to recharge them wirelessly in Qi wireless at 12W. The Universal Dock UD22, on the other hand, is useful for “shared workspaces” (connecting 4 4K monitors together, charging up to 96W, 4 video ports, 2 USB Type-C and 4 Type-A), while the Thunderbolt Dock WD22TB4, in the new version with also interchangeable modules, it is not limited to offering fast charging via Thunderbolt 4, but is useful for connecting multiple 4K monitors and providing many ports (two DP 1.4 ports, one HDMI 2.0, one multifunction USB-C (one pair of Thunderbolt 4, one Gigabit Ethernet, two 1st gen USB 3.2 Type-A, one HDMI 2.0, one Type-C also with DisplayPort 1.4, and a couple of native Display Port 1.4).
Last but not least, the Premier Rechargeable Active Pen PN7522W stylus (155 x 9.8 mm, for 14.2 grams). It is an active pen and therefore requires a quick charge (completely in 50 minutes, to 80% in 20 min) for the 45 mAh battery which is able to reach 40 days of autonomy, during which allows you to write and draw thanks to its 4096 levels of pressure, without the danger of forgetting it around thanks to the finding of Tile via Bluetooth 5.0. This pen has an upper button and, on the sides, two programmable buttons: in addition, it is compatible with Office, AutoCAD, Teams, Zoom, Photoshop, Docusign, One Note, and Microsoft Whiteboard.
