The present monitor from Dell provides a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution and is offered for a budget-friendly price. Having an IPS display and LED backlight, it provides a wide viewing angle (178°) and increased brightness with less power consumption.
The Dell SE2416H is a 24-inch monitor with a 16:9 aspect ratio. More precise, it is 13 inches high, 21.91 inches wide, and 2.17 inches deep. Considering the additional stand size, it weighs more than 10 pounds.
The Dell monitor SE2416H has a matte display with a 3H anti-glare hard coating so you won’t have to worry about reflections. Besides, thanks to this coating, the monitor is pleasing to the eyes.
This model features 8 preset modes that allow adjusting the image for any kind of activity: Standard, Multimedia, Movie, Game, Paper (loads brightness and sharpness settings perfect for viewing text), Warm, Cool, and Custom which allow the user to manually adjust the color settings.
The monitor's pixel pitch is 0.275 mm which means that the picture will be brighter if you sit closer to the monitor. It also provides a 16.7 million color gamut which is bigger the one in many competing monitors. The Dell SE2416H has a standard 60Hz refresh rate and 6 ms response time which is okay unless you play some high-performance FPS online games.
The Dell SE2416H specs include a PowerNap feature that puts the monitor into a sleep mode or decreases brightness when it's not in use. In addition to that, the monitor is made of eco-friendly arsenic-free glass without the use of mercury and meets such environmental standards as Energy Star, EPEAT (silver-rated), CECP, and TCO.
For increased safety, the monitor’s circuit boards are manufactured of brominated flame retardant and PVC-free laminates.
Except for the monitor, among the included items, you will also find power and VGA cables, as well as Dell SE2416H manual, and other documentation.
The monitor has a black body. Both the rear panel and the frame around the display have a glossy finish.
The stand has an aluminum-like finish and provides a good base for stability, so the monitor doesn’t tend to wobble. Unfortunately, it doesn’t provide the opportunity to rotate the monitor or regulate its height, but you can adjust its viewing angle (–5°/ 21°). The stand also has a hole in its center which serves as a cable management slot so the bottom of the monitor won’t look messy.
On the back, you will see 2 connectors: HDMI and VGA. There is also a security-lock slot on the left side of the rear panel of the unit to secure the monitor (security lock is not included in the kit)
On the right side of the bottom bezel, you will see 5 easy-access buttons. The first button opens up a list of preset modes, the second one allows adjusting contrast and brightness of the screen. The third button opens the OSD menu, while the next button is used to exit the menu. The largest button allows turning the monitor on/off. It has power light which indicates the monitor's working status: solid white light means that the monitor is on and fully functional; blinking white indicates the power save mode.
So, as you can see from this Dell SE2416H review, this model is a great solution for everyday use and office tasks. In addition, thanks to 8 preset modes and dedicated brightness/contrast button, this monitor is very customizable and user-friendly. The Game mode adapts the image for games, which, along with a 60Hz refresh rate and 6 ms response time, make the monitor a suitable option for usual gaming. Thanks to LED-backlit display and the PowerNap feature, this monitor is also energy-efficient. The Full HD resolution and 3H anti-glare hard coating ensure a clear and vivid image.
