The two main differences are:
– Less backlight bleed on U3417W. Most noticeable in a dark room viewing dark content. U3415W is not the best choice for watching movies full-screen.
– Greater curve on U3417W. U3415W is slightly too flat for a monitor of this width. This matters mostly in a multi-monitor setup, where you might not always be sitting right in front of the monitor. As a single monitor, U3415W is fine.
Both differences make U3417W better. Not worth the current 50% price premium, but clearly better.
There are other, smaller differences:
– Thinner bezel on U3417W. Approximately 10mm on U3417W and 13mm on U3415W.
– U3417W has two USB ports on the side and two on the bottom. U3415W has one on the back and three on the bottom.
