Inroduction of Dell-u2415
Several months ago I picked up on your monitor that Dell you 2415 and after some extensive views, it’s time to do a review on it.
The Dell 2415 is a 24 inch IPS monitor with measuring edge to edge the viewable area of 24.1 inches, which is great because typically monitors fall just below the market size.
This is a WUXGA screen, which means a 16 by 10 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1920 by 1200. So slightly larger than a typical 10 ADP but still considered as such.
The build quality of Dell u2415
The build quality of this monitor is most proper and solid; obviously, all made out of plastic by does not feel cheap.
The bezel size is impressive just 6.9 millimetres aside from the bottom grille with the logo, which is 14 millimetres.
Overall front-facing aesthetics of this monitor are great to do the controls are touch-sensitive, which I’ve never been a fan of because nothing replaces the feedback of a physical button, but therefore they’re less visually intrusive.
The monitor does have some bar mounts at the bottom covered by this cheap glued plastic which could have been designed a bit better.
There are also visible vent holes in the back to dissipate heat, and of course, the scan attachment cavity, which does include VESA mount holes and screws in case you want to attach a mounting arm. Personally, This is a must.
Set-up the monitor
Attaching the monitor to the stand is a breeze. The monitor center itself it’s fully adjustable to a respectable degree, this level of agility enables the monitor to be aligned to a comfortable position for a large number of use cases.
The importance of this can never be overstated. The IO ports are hidden behind this removable cover, which is easy to remove maybe and feels flimsy.
I’ve been keeping it off since it makes access to the ports harder, but really because putting it back on.
Yeah, it’s a negotiation on its own. Behind a flimsy cover our shiny IO ports, this includes four USB three o ports, one USB in, analogue out your out as well as Display Port out one mini and full Display-Port and two HDMI ports.
You need that many and of course Lastly, power, but then in a back way in the back over here, but much more easily accessible than the rest is one more USB port.
Let’s do a power-on test and see how it compares to its older and smaller sibling. It’s quick to power on, and this is where the bezel size starts to stand out.
Improvement than last generation
Compared to the last generation of monitors, the difference and improvements in design are quite apparent. For comparison.
On the left, I have my trusty p 2214 inch 22-inch monitor and on the right or new 24 inches u 2415. Overall, the IPS panels share similar attributes but more on that later. First, let’s look at the OSD do is D is controlled through four touch-sensitive buttons, with the first two acting as re-programmable shortcuts.
Starting on the left, we have access to colour profile presets such as changing the monitor into game mode or movie mode. Followed by input source selection. And of course access to the fully-fledged menu.
The OSD menu gives us access to all of the monitor settings, including different screen parameters, personalization of the lower shortcuts, language-related settings, USB and led energy settings.
And of course, display panel controls, which includes the ability to change the aspect ratio. Unfortunately, 16 by nine is not included, and I feel it should.
Then, of course, we have color related controls, as well as input source selection. And lastly, brightness and contrast controls which I have set to 100% to bring out more of the brilliance of the screen. all the features and physical attributes aside, what matters is the screen quality.
IPS panels such as this typically provide good colour accuracy and good viewing angles. And this value 2415 conforms to this expectation with a 99% sRGB coverage and 178-degree viewing angles. So that’s decent.
Since this monitor has an aspect ratio of 16 by 10 versus 16 by nine and a resolution of 1920 by 1200 instead of 1920 by 1080.
This provides a bit more vertical real estate and increases the total pixel count compared to its 10 ADP simply on its peak resolution.
It can be driven at 60 hertz, so by no means is this professional gaming monitor. And with the lack of free sync and G sync built and to prevent screen tearing, it’s not marketed as one either.
Screen quality in Dell Monitor
However, I played World of Warcraft x come to and Pillars of Eternity in several ABA games and it handled it quite well as a matter fact, on some games, I prefer more vivid colours and overall visuals over their hertz rate.
This wouldn’t be the case for every game or gamer out there. But for occasional gaming, this definitely will do the job.
If you play lots of FPS, you probably already know what you need. And that’s even a decent, capable monitor if you have an Nvidia card or freesync if you have an AMD card, and that’s the only way to get that smooth frame drawing, but also a monitor rated at 100 or more hertz.
The screen has a response time of eight Ms Gray to grey or six MS and what they’ll call fast mode, which can be changed in do is the menu.
And in both cases, it was not noticeable at all and pretty much aligned with my expectation for this monitor.
The panel has a brightness rating of 300 candelas per meter squared, typically, so pretty standard. subjectively even in a well-lit room.
It had no issues with its brand, And on-screen objects appeared well distinguished. Now regarding image sharpness. So this is a 24-inch monitor more or less 10 ADP resolution. Well, that makes for pretty big pixels.
At close distance, I can easily see those individual pixels stand out. And even at a normal sitting distance when the text gets small or looking at curved lines and a contrasting background.
This resolution at a 24-inch form factor starts to show its weakness, and you lose that perfect curvature compared to the same size screen with a higher resolution or a smaller screen with the same resolution.
The Optimal Resolution
The optimal resolution for the 24-inch screen should be 1440 feet, but that also changes their price tag, especially with all of its features attached. But that is most relevant to static content, such as text appearing a bit jagged, while moving content such as movies or games.
Well, pixel density becomes a lesser of a factor there as far as sharpness goes, it is worthy of considering that the smaller resolution also means less GPU power to drive it.
The performance cost to rendering games or other visuals at 1080 P versus 1440 P or even 4k is quite significant, so the overall cost to value ratio must be considered.
Overall, despite some of its drawbacks, the dell 2415. is a decent performer in nearly all respects, good panel quality, decent colour accuracy with typical response time and plenty of IO ports and a slick appearance with a price point of just over 200 USD, it makes them monitor a good value.
I can recommend it to anyone looking for a general-purpose monitor that doesn’t break the bank because that’s what this monitor does well acceptable in all respects.
Not quite perfect. And if you think about it, isn’t that basically what a daily user should be? Tell me what you think in the comments, and check a link to this monitor below this article. If you enjoyed this review, Take care
