However, there is still no option in Windows 10 Settings -> System -> Display to enable HDR and a dxdiag detects the U2718Q as not supporting HDR - see dxdiag output here and this Windows 10 HDR troubleshooter from Microsoft which details what dxdiag should be reporting if HDR support has been detected.I've also ensured I'm running the latest Nvidia drivers 398.11 released.

The Dell U2718Q is not to be confused with the Dell UP2718Q, which has a much brighter image, higher contrast, and wider color gamut for the true HDR viewing experience. Image Quality IPS panel displays also have wide viewing angles of 178° both horizontally and vertically, which prevent the image from shifting in color and contrast when it’s looked at an angle. All display connectors of theDell U2718Q support HDCP 2.2. So, you can watch copy-protected content in 4K on Blu-rays and streaming services such as Netflix on the monitor. The earlier versions of this monitor (A00 to A02 models) are limited to HDMI 1.4 (4K up to 30Hz), while the newer variants (V03+) can enable HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 (for streaming 4K content) via this method. Price & Similar MonitorsMoving on, there are four monitor hotkeys in addition to the power button at the right side of the monitor at the bottom. Additionally, the response time speed of only 5ms effectively eliminates the motion blur of fast-moving objects in video games and movies.

The problem that started yesterday is that the monitor won't wake up from sleep unless I unplug it for a minute and then try again. It's connected to a MacBook Pro (mid-2014) via the supplied DisplayPort cable. This started happening randomly a few days after the firmware update and no update has been made to the MacBook. If I play HDR content in Windows 10 Films & TV it looks incredibly over saturated. SDR content plays fine. In the OSD (On-Screen Display), you will find the following settings: contrast, brightness, aspect ratio, sharpness, color format, color temperature, input source selection, RGB, hue, and saturation.TheDell U2718Q 27″ 4K IPS monitor features a premium design with full ergonomic support including up to 130mm of height adjustment, -/+ 45° swivel, -5°/20° tilt, 90° pivot, and 100 x 100mm VESA mount compatibility. While I understand the Mac OS isn't officially supported by Dell, it would still be good to know if and when a future firmware update for the U2718Q will correct this problem permanently.

Choosing a quality monitor can be hard work if you haven't done your research. There are numerous acronyms and buzzwords to get to grips with, including 4K, 5K, UHD, FreeSync and G-Sync, to name but a few, and you can now add HDR to the list.

I'm running two monitors, a legacy DELL 2709W (Primary) and the new DELL U2718Q (Secondary) in Windows 10. The problem is that I cannot get the U2718Q to show up as supporting HDR in any scenario. To start with, the Dell P2715Q monitor is based on an IPS panel, which ensures precise and consistent color reproduction. Overall, the image quality is stunning, as expected of Dell’s 4K IPS monitor at this price range. It’s only when we get to HDR that things start toturn south. Moreover, it’s factory-calibrated to Delta E< 2 and covers 99.9% of the sRGB color space, making it an adequate display for professional color-critical work.

The Dell P2715Q has a sturdy and versatile design with up to 115mm height adjustment, -5°/21° tilt, +/- 45° swivel, 90° pivot, and 100x100mm VESA mount compatibility. Probably a bit late, but... make sure your GFX card (965m) supports HDR and make sure HDR is enabled in the Monitor menu that you manage with your fingers (bottom right). This wasn't the case for me (SmartHDR was OFF) and as a result dxdiag *did not* show up as supporting HDR colorspace. When I switched it on in the menu with my greasy paws and re-ran dxdiag, it showed up as supporting HDR.

Can the more modest U2718Q deliver a convincing HDR experience, and does HDR make sense on a Windows 10 desktop? We've had the screen in our labs for the past couple of weeks and, having spent plenty of time getting acquainted, the answers are mixed. Design and Specification
