- 24-inch, Full HD display
- PLS panel
- 1x DisplayPort, 1x Mini DP, 1x HDMI
The Dell U2417 is the best mid-range monitor you can buy right now. Packing a 24-inch PLS panel with a Full HD resolution and a great design, there’s almost nothing not to like.
It looks great, with an ultra-thin bezel and stylish metallic stand, and that’s before you switch it on. It’s exceptionally practical, with DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort and HDMI inputs alongside a DisplayPort output for daisy-chaining, and three USB 3.0 ports, two of which are easy to reach.
Image quality is exceptional. While it’s only a Full HD panel – some will prefer a slightly larger 2,560x1,440-pixel resolution on perhaps a 25-inch monitor – it covers 99.6% of the sRGB colour gamut and produced a 1,065:1 contrast ratio for easy-to-read text and pretty images.
With its practical stand and excellent image quality, there’s not much better for the money.
At the time of review the DelL U2417H was priced at £240
