Best Dell Monitors: What are they?
Dell UltraSharp U2718Q Monitor
The Dell UltraSharp U2718Q monitor is one of the most popular monitors among gamers due to its high resolution (2560 x 1440) and low input lag. This monitor supports AMD FreeSync technology which reduces screen tearing and stuttering when running games at 60 frames per second or higher. This monitor comes with a 1ms response time, which means it will not have any noticeable blurring or ghosting.
The panel itself is IPS, meaning it uses organic light emitting diode (OLED). It provides wide viewing angles thanks to its 178 degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles. You can use this monitor for both professional and personal purposes. It is an excellent secondary display for your PC or laptop when you are doing schoolwork or job work. If you’re a gamer, this monitor will provide a crisp, clear image due to its high resolution. Although this monitor does have great specs, it has a few negative aspects as well. The stand provided is not the sturdiest and it cannot be adjusted to swivel or tilt. The monitor also has a 4ms response time, which is pretty average. It provides a good balance between speed and smoothness. If you are looking for a cheaper monitor with the same specs, then check out the AOC U2879VF or the ASUS MX239H.
Dell U2715H Monitor
The Dell U2715H monitor is part of the old, but still excellent Dell Ultrasharp monitor line. This monitor has a max resolution of 2560 x 1440 making it great for both work and play. The best feature of this monitor is its 16:9 aspect ratio which is perfect for viewing 2 documents side by side.
This is especially useful for those who do a lot of research and need to look at a document and a browser window at the same time. This monitor has both HDMI and Display Port connectors so you can easily connect your PC or laptop. The stand can also be adjusted to your liking. A great feature about this monitor is it supports different color modes depending on what you’re using it for. There’s the standard “Movie and Video” mode, as well as the “Gaming” mode, which reduces any unnecessary ghosting or motion blur. There’s also an “Office” mode that brightens up the colors to increase focus. This can be useful if you’re looking at a large spreadsheet or article. Like most monitors, there are also Night and Day modes that makes the screen either warmer or cooler depending on your preferences. The Dell U2715H also comes with built in speakers, which are surprisingly loud and clear for built in speakers. It also has a 5ms response time and 16.7 million colors. There really isn’t anything negative to say about this monitor given that it is an older model. If you can find this monitor at a reasonable price, then we highly recommend it.
BenQ RL2455HM Gaming Monitor
The BenQ RL2455HM is a newer gaming monitor that has excellent picture quality, a solid frame rate, and quick response time. This monitor has a max resolution of 1920×1080 which is great for those who are still playing games at a typical HD resolution. It has a full HD 1080p screen and also has an anti-glare coating, which makes it easy to see regardless of where you are in the room.
This monitor has a low input lag, which is great for competitive gaming and first person shooters in particular. Other features this monitor offers are dynamic contrast ratio, gaming preset modes, and a black equalizer for enhanced visibility in dark scenes. One drawback to this monitor is it only tilts backwards and not upwards. This can be an issue if you are trying to view the monitor from above, and may cause difficulty for some. If you’re looking for a dedicated gaming monitor and have a bit of extra money, then this is a great option to consider.
There are many different monitors out there that can each serve a different and specific purpose. We hope that our list and information has helped you narrow down your choices, and you can find the perfect monitor for yourself or your business.
