7 Reasons For
DELL Flatpanel Monitors Have Excellent Reviews
We calculated the average reviews for all DELL flatpanel monitors and specifically for DELL small monitors and found that in both cases DELL had excellent reviews.
Recent Price Drop of £12.65
The P2016 has dropped in price by £12.65 in the last 4 days.
Fairly Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
The DELL P2016 has one of the wider horizontal viewing angles (178 degrees) amongst small monitors of this age. The horizontal viewing angles of small monitors that came out around the same time as the P2016 range from 90° to 180°.
Quite Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
The average vertical viewing angle of flatpanel monitors of a similar age and type to the P2016 is 140°, and the vertical viewing angles range from 50° to 180°. With a vertical viewing angle of 178 degrees, the DELL P2016 has one of the wider vertical viewing angles amongst comparable spec PC monitors of this age.
1440 X 900 Graphics Resolution
The DELL P2016 has a maximum resolution of 1440 x 900. That's 1% more resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1280 x 1024 (SXGA). PC screens of this type and age graphics resolutions range from 720 x 400 (worst) to 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) (best).
1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This flatpanel monitor has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is typical of many PC displays that came out around the same time as it.
+2 More reasons for
The DELL P2016 is one of the shallower PC screens of this age and type (only 46.5 millimeters) amongst comparable spec PC monitors of this age. Across all the small monitors that were released one year ago the depths range from 2.7mm to 380mm, and the average depth is 72mm.
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The DELL P2016 does not have a built-in speaker, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other small monitors that have been available for more than a year also do not have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the Viewsonic VA2055SM (£89.87), or the Acer V176L (£70.50) or the AOC M2060SWDA2 (£47.72) are also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
The DELL P2016 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other PC displays of a similar spec and age to the P2016 are also not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The DELL P2016 does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other LCD screens of this type and age also do not have an integrated card reader.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The DELL P2016 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other flatpanel monitors of a similar age and type to the P2016 also do not have a built-in camera.
+3 More reasons against
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The DELL P2016 is a two USB 2.0 port LCD screen. Most of the other PC monitors of this age and type have between one and four USB 2.0 ports.
Fairly Slow Response Time
With a response time of 8 milliseconds, the DELL P2016 has one of the slower response times amongst small monitors of this age. The average response time of PC screens of this age and spec is 7.6ms.
5 Other reasons to consider the DELL P2016
Average Running Costs
The P2016 has an average 5 year running cost of £28 based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 61 flatpanel monitors that have been around for more than a year.
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when DELL released the P2016.
LCD Display Type
The DELL P2016 has an LCD display type which is better than most LCD screens of a similar age and spec to it. Most similar spec PC displays that have been around for a comparable time to it have an LED display type.
We compared this PC screen to all the other PC screens that have an LCD Display and we think the Philips 203V5LSB (£70.04) which is cheaper; or the Samsung LS19E20KBW (£69.97), and the HP V201a (£69.97) which has a better Rating are also worth considering.
PC displays with a better display type that might be worth looking at include the Viewsonic VA2055SM (£89.87) (LED and higher rated); or the Philips 200V4QSB (£72.99) (LED and cheaper).
+3 Other reasons
1440 X 900 Pixels Display Resolution
The most display resolution of the DELL P2016 is 1440 x 900 pixels. That's 1% less display resolution than the most frequently found display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels.
We compared all the other PC monitors that have a display resolution of 1440 x 900 pixels to this PC display and we think the Samsung LS19E20KBW (£69.97) which has a better Rating is also worth considering.
If you would prefer a PC display with a more display resolution then you might also want to look at the ProDisplay P17A (1280 x 1024), or the EliteDisplay E190i (£95.00) (1280 x 1024) both from HP which is also cheaper.
With a width of 455.2 millimeters, the DELL P2016 has a pretty standard width compared to most of the other PC displays of this age and type.
PC displays with a wider width that might be worth considering include the LG 20M37 (463mm and cheaper).
