Dell UP2414Q review: A stunning monitor - but 4K still isn't ready for prime time
April 22, 2014
When most people think of Dell, they think of low-end, cheap computer hardware - the sorts of systems that are often ubiquitous in offices or college campuses, but rarely deliver a good user experience. Dell's high-end monitors have always enjoyed a solid reputation, but it wasn't until I sat down to play with the recently released 4K (3840×2160) UP2414Q that I realized just how stark the difference was between a truly high-end display and the other monitors I've used. The UP2414Q can rotate up to 90 degrees (giving you a stretched desktop of 2160×3840). Unlike some panels in this class, which feature 10-bit color, the Dell is an 8-bit panel - but it's such a step up compared to mainstream TN displays, it feels like it displays far more colors than its bit-depth would indicate. At launch, the UP2414Q was selling for $1300, but it's come down significantly since then, hovering around the $1000 mark. The rapid price drops make it attractive, but buyers should pay careful attention to the pros and cons.

The Audi TT offroad concept show car
April 21, 2014
The Audi TT offroad concept breaks the mold, combining the sportiness of a coupe with the lifestyle and utility of a compact SUV. The four-door model, which Audi is presenting at the Beijing International Automobile Exhibition today, adds an entirely new expression to the Audi design language. Its plug-in hybrid drive with two electric motors and a system output of 408 hp provides for dynamic performance, yet consumes on average just 1.9 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. "The Audi TT offroad concept provides a glimpse of how we might imagine a new model in the future TT family," says Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Member of the Board of Management for Technical Development.
