    HDR10 compatible this is bull####,
    this monitor has just 400nit but should be 1000nit to be HDR10 compatible.

    Agreed. To be fair, I don't really want / need HDR on a monitor (it's so confused as a technology I don't even care if it's on my TV).

    If this had been 100Hz+ with G-Sync I'd have been quite interested. Dell make generally great monitors and this looks the part for sure. Wish they'd thrown the cash at speed rather than TLA's.

    I'm wondering how HDR10 will even works on PC's, presumably Windows 10 will get some kind of update to switch into HDR mode however even with that, the computer display will still probably require manual switching from sRGB to HDR10.

    Hopefully they have already figured all that out and launching a HDR app would auto kick the monitor into HDR10 mode whether your using Displayport or HDMI but I suspect none of that has been done so buying any PC HDR display is a huge risk.

    Being so thin they have to put all the controls & connections into the base means no VESA mounting. TOTAL FAIL!

    In other colour quality metrics the Dell 27 Ultrathin (S2718D) can display up to 99 percent of the SRGB gamut.
    Surely that's a mistake. sRGB is more or less the lowest common denominator in colour spaces. For a monitor being able to handle HDR10 (or anything HDR for that matter) I'd strongly expect it to support something closer to AdobeRGB or DCI-P3 at 99%.
