23.8″ Dell SE2416HX FHD IPS Monitor via Amazon
Dell SE2416HX is a brand new late 2015 release smart design, matte 23.8 inch screen LED-lit Full HD monitor with IPS panel at an affordable price. Dell SE2716H is the 27 inch and curved version with integrated speakers and the Dell SE2216H is the 22 inch monitor that is soon to appear on Amazon.com before the end of January 2016. It is classic black piano finish with an aluminium painted riser and has very slim and glossy bezels (improved from the previous model and offers better viewing area) and looks nice and elegant, has a solid and robust and broad base so you can tilt the monitor to any angle you want as it supports the display well, has easy to access and use buttons at the bottom so you can adjust the image to your liking. Being not a glossy screen it will work well in offices or homes with a lot of sunlight coming in. It doesn’t come with any connectivity options other than an HDMI port and the older style VGA port to be able to connect with different computer, so there is no USB port and no Audio output. It is pretty basic but great quality for general purpose as long as you are not expecting something outstanding but still offers 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and has IPS panel with anti glare with hard coat 3H for up to 178 degree very wide viewing angles vertically and horizontally and with 16:9 image aspect ratio. Dell SE2416HX weighs 13.2 pounds and measures 25.5 x 4.9 x 15.9 inches (this is a diagonally 23.8 inch or 60.45 cm display)- lightweight and slim and will not take up a lot of space on your desk.
You will experience vibrant colours of deeper blacks, whiter whites and brighter reds and other colours that are accurate and rich on the very clear FHD screen with 250 cd/m2 and 8 Million :1 dynamic contrast ratio (total of 16.7 Million colors) and with fast response rate. It is made of a mercury-free LED panel and arsenic-free glass, with PVC-free laminates and BFR- brominated flame retardant circuit boards, is EPEAT silver rated and Energy Star qualified and one of its useful environment friendly features is the “PowerNap” that decreases brightness and puts it in sleep mode when you’re not using it. If you own a Windows computer the DVD that you get in the box will make things easier for you and you will be able to manage the monitor features from your computer and if you’re an Apple user you need to adjust the settings on both the monitor and the computer to reach the optimal image quality. It comes with small limitations such as the lack of connectivity ports that you may find on very expensive monitors but for most people that would be redundant, doesn’t include speakers so you just plug in external speakers, is not wall mountable and there is only a single fixed height setting but it is a great no-thrills monitor with decent image quality without flaws or dead pixels. It is suitable for use with both Apple and Windows computers, is simple to use and reliable, being built according to regulatory and environmental standards and comes with a three year limited hardware warranty that includes a 3 year Advanced Exchange Service. In the box you will get the Dell monitor with stand, power cable, a quick setup manual, drivers and documentation media and safety information.
