Dell S2440L review

 

This system is very easy to use, but if you hate changing settings you can use Dell's Display Manager software which can automatically change monitor settings based on which applications you're running.

The Dell S2440L is constructed to a very high standard, the edge-to-edge glass adding a touch of class to its already very clean minimalist lines. The display itself is capable of impressive performance. It's not the cheapest 24inch display you'll...

Dell S2440L

 

The S2440L looks great, and promises very deep black levels

Dell’s “professional” S2440L is a decent bargain at an MSRP of $299, but we recommend trying to find it for less online. There’s something to be said for its appearance, but the S2440L seems to be slightly more form than function, which we always feel...

a mirror and screen all in one

 

had i known it was quite this glossy, i would have bought a different one i think. will avoid glossy screens from now on. just have to find a good anti-glare screen for it and it'll be sorted.

great looking screen, worked perfectly out of the box. controls make it extremely easy to adjust the settings. base looks good too

1) it's like sitting in front of a 24" mirror. knew it was glossy when, but quite THIS glossy i would never have guessed. when you're looking at dark websites or programs, you basically stare at yourself. bit disappointed it's this glossy to be honest....

Great upgrade from my previous monitor

 

If you can look past the negatives, this is a nice monitor. But, if you are a gamer, you can find something better out there for less money, but nothing glossy. All the monitors I could find were matte, and TN panels, which I do not prefer, being that...

first and foremost, no flickering. Some European models are reported to have PWM, but it is apparent that none of the US models have any flicker of any sorts. The design is looking very slick, being that the glass is the same level as the bezel, so...

Although the colours are indeed vibrant, the black levels are not. There is no back light bleed, but the dark pixels dont get very dark, then again, I am spoiled by the super amoled screen on my galaxy! I love glossy monitors, but for some people, this...

Too Glossy

 

Really, don't buy this monitor. Even if you live in a basement, there will be too much of a reflection for it to be usable.

Looks nice when not in use

This was purchased for an employee. It's one of the glossiest screens I've seen, and is effectively a mirror even when in use. The employee rejected the monitor after one day citing eye strain and headaches

Correcting an error

 

I am writing to correct a statement someone made: "NEAR IPS. It isn't true IPS, but the colors, contrast ratio and viewing angles are almost in comparison with IPS monitors." This statement is untrue with regard to contrast ratio. A-MVA technology,...

Very high real contrast, due to A-MVA panel ; Better viewing angles than TN panels offer ; No fuzziness/noise/crystallization from a matte anti-glare treatment ; Very low input lag (5 ms) ; Outstanding pixel responsiveness, compared with older MVA...

Not capable of handling the Adobe RGB color space ; High glare glossy glass screen ; Only HDMI connection ; Backlight uses PWM ; More limited viewing angles than PLS, H-IPS, and S-IPS panels ; Very basic stand
