The Dell SE2416HX is a good option for everyday use. This model has a 23.8-inch viewable area with a 1080p resolution and LCD screen with a precise and consistent picture that shows up to 16.7 million colors.
The SE2416HX has a 16:9 aspect ratio. Its overall dimensions are 21.9 x 7.1 x 16.7 inches while the monitor weighs 12.7 pounds.
The present model shows rich and vivid colors. The shades of red look especially bright while dark colors are truly deep. The clarity of the picture is decent as well because the surface of the monitor has an anti-glare 3H coating which minimizes reflections. The high-dynamic 8,000,000:1 contrast ratio creates a truly realistic picture.
The monitor has a response time of 6 ms. Thus, it doesn’t have noticeable ghosting or blurring but won’t provide you with the most smooth picture. Thanks to the standard 60Hz refresh rate, the Dell SE2416HX monitor will work great for casual, non-professional gaming.
The menu includes special modes that allow adjusting the image for almost any type of application: gaming (Game), watching movies (Movie), working with documents (Paper), etc.
Thanks to the IPS panel, the monitor features a wide 178° viewing angle. This way, the image looks equally good from both sitting and standing positions. Thus, this model is also an excellent choice for wall mounting.
The Dell SE2416HX 23.8-inch screen LED-lit IPS monitor has a special PowerNap function which puts it in sleep mode (0.3W standby power) or reduces its brightness. Besides, the Energy Gauge shows the energy level consumed by the monitor in real time. This model is also compatible with the most popular environmental standards, like Energy Star, CECP, TCO.
Except for the Dell SE2416HX manual, you will also get VGA and power cables along with the monitor.
The monitor's body has a glossy black piano finish. The bezels around the screen are of average thickness.
The easy-access buttons, which serve for image adjustment, can be found on the bottom bezel. The first button in the row opens up a list of preset modes, the second one allows adjusting brightness and contrast, the third button launches the on-screen display menu, and the last one is an Exit button. The largest button in the right corner is used to turn the monitor on/off. This button also has a power light which indicates the working status (fully functional or in a sleep mode).
The bottom part of the monitor has VGA and HDMI inputs which means that it can be used with both old and new computers.
It’s also made of environment-friendly materials that are free from arsenic glass and mercury. The stand base is made of plastic with an aluminum finish which gives the monitor a modern look. The stand riser has a round hole in its center which is intended to be used for cable management. The stand provides sturdy and stable support and allows tilting the monitor from 5° to 21°.
As my final words in this Dell SE2416HX review, I can say that this monitor is greatly suitable for most casual needs of an average user. A great number of preset image modes prove that. The monitor shows a decent and bright picture which is great for movie/TV-show lovers and has a good 6 ms response time and 60Hz refresh rate that will be enough for usual gaming.
