Professionals looking to step up to a higher resolution with a 4K monitor will find plenty to like in the UP2414Q, but its small size and odd assortment of connections limit its appeal.

The UP2414Q may look "reserved, simple and straightforward," but TrustedReviews says that's "exactly what you want" given that your focus should be on the screen itself. However, it does benefit from a sturdy, fully-adjustable chassis which Tom's Hardware admired for being very precise and "offering just the right level of resistance."

The ports are a bit more of a mixed bag, with Wired finding them ample but "not all that easy to get to." The UP2414Q has one HDMI, one DisplayPort and one mini DIsplayPort, but no VGA or DVI. While the omission of the latter two might not be a huge deal, the HDMI is only 1.4a, meaning you can only view the monitor at 30Hz. This results in a picture ExtremeTech feels that "no one will want to use ... in anything but an emergency — the flicker-induced eyestrain is phenomenal."

4K content remains effectively nonexistent, but it’ll arrive eventually. If you need to prepare yourself for it now in the most compact yet high-performing way possible, Dell’s UltraSharp 24 easily fits the bill.

The Dell UltraSharp UP2414Q offers a sharp UHD image, good color and grayscale performance, and a generous feature set, but this 24-inch monitor also comes with a high price tag.

If you work primarily in graphics, and you don’t mind the smaller display, Dell's UP2414Q can save you 70 percent ... Alternatively, you might want to wait for Dell’s 28-inch Ultra HD TN model coming soon for $700, providing you don't need the Adobe RGB color gamut.

It looks absolutely fantastic, but at this stage, it’s probably of more interest to content-creation professionals than PC performance and gaming enthusiasts.

If you have a specific use for 4K and you know that a 24-inch panel won’t be too small for you, then the Dell UP2414Q is absolutely recommended. ... the general state of 4K support is still too low ... for me to recommend the technology to anyone with $1200 burning a hole in their pocket.

The Dell UP2414Q is certainly an impressive monitor, and it’s well priced compared to Ultra HD displays ... It's a shame the UP2414Q isn’t compatible with Apple products, but if you have the correct hardware to drive it, the UP2414Q is incredibly impressive.
