DELL PC Monitors Have Excellent Reviews
DELL is one of the best PC screen manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and users, and DELL also has excellent ratings for its medium monitors.
Has Two Cables Included
The DELL E2216H has a greater number of cables included than most similar spec PC screens that have been available for the last year. The most commonly found cable included is USB, but this cable included is not found on this DELL PC display. The cables included DisplayPort and AC are also found on this DELL flatpanel monitor.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This LCD screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
At only 512.2 millimeters, the DELL E2216H is quite narrow compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for the last year. Across all the LCD screens that were released around the same time as the E2216H the widths range from 370mm to 960mm.
The DELL E2216H is fairly shallow (only 50.5 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the E2216H. The depths of similar spec LCD screens that were released around the same time as the E2216H range from 7mm to 610mm.

9 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most of the other PC displays that have been around for around the same time as the E2216H have a built-in speaker, however the DELL E2216H does not have a built-in speaker.
We compared this PC display to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the VS229HA (£99.99), or the VP228TE (£79.99) both from Asus or the AOC E2275PWJ (£104.91) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other latest medium monitors, the DELL E2216H does not have an integrated card reader.
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the E2216H, the DELL E2216H is not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The DELL E2216H does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other LCD screens that have been on the market for a comparable time to the E2216H also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in camera and we think the HP EliteDisplay E240c (£188.99) which also has a higher Rating is also worth considering.

If the display resolution of this LCD screen is too few for you then you might also want to consider the HP EliteDisplay E242 (£133.75) (1920 x 1200 and higher rated).
