Dell P2414H

Dell P2417H

Review by Daywalker
Review by Rtings

Matte with height adjustable stand and USB ports.

Low glow panel with less vibrant and accurate colors than some newer competitors since it can only cover around 90% of the sRGB color space. Owners have also reported that it suffers from obvious overshoot ghosting on certain transitions (purple overshoot on white & grey background), and but Dell is in denial or does not seem interested in the issue according to user interactions with Dell Customer Service on their forums.


Dell S2415H

Glossy.  Review by PC Monitors


Dell U2414H

Matte with height adjustable stand and USB ports.  2013 monitor with <91% sRGB color space coverage resulting in less vibrant and accurate color than the best options.

Dell U2417HWI

Matte with height adjustable stand and USB ports.

Review by Alexander Gryzhin (=DEAD=)

The HWI uses an 8 bit Samsung LTM238HL01 PLS panel which can only cover 88-90% of the sRGB color space while many of the newer 2016 panels can cover >93-100% of the sRGB color space which means that they can display colors more accurately and vibrantly.

Review by TFT Central

The U2417HA [Samsung LTM238HL04 PLS; not sure about the bit depth since different claims (6 bit +FRC vs 8 bit) exist] has an extended color space and better image quality than most 1080p IPS/PLS along with the 25" panels, LG 24MP68VQ-P and Philips 245C5QHAB, but it uses a PLS panel with a stronger matte coating than competing IPS panels. The unit PRAD and TFT Central (before revision change) both have around a frame of input lag.


Dell S2418H

Semi-glossy (same coating as the HP 24 Envy which looks washed out under bright lighting) with 24-75hz AMD Free-Sync.  Review by Alexander Gryzhin (=DEAD=)


Dell S2419H

Semi-Glossy 6 bit +FRC LG AH-IPS panel with excellent preset color accuracy and gaming performance (balanced overdrive and negligible input lag) for a 60hz AHVA/IPS/PLS panel.  It is not VESA compliant, does not support Free-Sync, and suffers from very obvious interlaced artifacts when overclocked above 60hz (71hz=max without frame skipping):

Quote from: PC Monitors
Some models display static interlace patterns, not linked to motion and observed when the monitor is simply displaying a static image as well. Some shades may appear as faint horizontal bands of a slightly lighter and slightly darker version of the intended shade. We did observe static interlace patterns on this model, with some light and medium blue, yellow and orange shades in particular showing this. The horizontal bands were reasonably faint and not everyone would notice or find them bothersome. Curiously, if you reduced the refresh rate to 50Hz they became even more faint. Increasing the refresh rate much beyond 60Hz (refer to a note on ‘overclocking’ in the next section) made these extremely obvious.

Dell P2419HC

Added the Review by Les Numeriques to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 24-25" 1080p IPS/PLS Monitors buying guide.

Fully adjustable matte 1920x1080 LG AH-IPS panel with Displayport, HDMI, USB-C, 2x USB 2.0 and 2x USB 3.0.  The P2419HC is very accurate, has high 12000:1 contrast and top tiper 60hz gaming performance for an AHVA/IPS/PLS and TN panel.
