Do you think this features imply the same increment in the total bill of materials than in price or engineering expenses ? should we see this technology on cheaper models ?

$1500 is too much for this. its 27 inch only .. there are 43-55 inch TVs at the same price with the same specs , 10bit , HDR10 and wide color gamut.

The point is They have not the same nits as this device!
If you read there Are Many monitors that claim hdr but can not actually show it. Same with cheap tv sets.

HDR is not about nits only. OLED TVs are superior to even the best LCD HDR TVs even though they currently max out at aroung 700 nits. I'd rather have a 500 nits "only" OLED TV than a 500 zone +1000 nits LCD TV. The per-pixel black level are important for maximum detail.

Nice, but I'll never trust a Dell monitor again. My admittedly aging 2709W has had the very common vertical line issue for a few years now, and Google tells me I am far from alone. Checking the user reviews on Amazon shows an appallingly low satisfaction with new Dell screens indicating a roughly one in five chance of getting a lemon, and huge problems getting it fixed if you do. You end up with a refurbished screen (second hand) which may or may not develop the same issue. If you get a good one, they are great value, but I am just not prepared to risk it.

I have 3 Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP's and they were premium monitors at the time and 1 month after the warranty expired I got the vertical line issue on all of them. I am also done with Dell Monitor's also.

1000 nits in an LCD screen? To look at 60cm/23inches? Are you crazy? This can blind the user! It's roughly four times brighter than a normal LCD screen! Also, after a couple of minutes, the user will lose all colour sensibility! Everything will become black and white!

Graphic above shows 'Approved' award, not 'Recommended.'

rip-off, the price is similar to upcoming UHD@144Hz(with variable refresh) gaming monitors with HDR (same number of zones) and Quantum Dot tech.

Christian,
Perhaps if Dell could implement some form of Firmware update/fix that takes care of having more than one profile on the monitor. In retrospect, the monitor isn't really geared all that much for gamer's but for content creators who need to push that last bit of detail.
