4K UHD 32″ curved monitor: Perfect ultrathin Dell S3221QS: Review

Dell S3221QS has a simple design that fits perfectly in most office environments. It looks almost identical to the Dell S2721D that we tested, but with a curved display. It has thin edges on three sides with a slightly thicker lower bezel.

The construction quality of the Dell S3221QS is topnotch. The stand is very durable as it has a metal frame covered with high quality plastic and supports the monitor well. The tilted zipper is also good and allows for easy and precise adjustments. The plastic back feels well done; however, it flexes a little at the edges and easily separates from the frame. In addition, the edges feel cheap, as it does not follow the curvature of the screen, creating small blanks in some areas. The ultra-thin three-sided design in 4K UHD resolution (3840 x 2160) allows you to enjoy immersive vision with incredible clarity and fine details with a resolution 4 times higher than full HD.
