Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most of the other similar spec PC monitors that have been available for around the same time as the P2416D have a built-in speaker, however the DELL P2416D does not have a built-in speaker.
We compared this PC screen to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the DELL UZ2315H (£145.00), or the AOC Q2577PWQ (£214.98); or the Asus VX279N (£215.48) are also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC displays which also have a built-in camera including the DELL UZ2315H (£145.00).

+7 More reasons against
Not 3D Compatible
Most PC displays of this age and spec are not 3D compatible. The DELL P2416D is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

The DELL P2416D has a maximum contrast ratio of 2000000:1. That's 60% less contrast ratio than the most frequently found dynamic contrast ratio of 5000000:1. Across all PC screens of a comparable spec and age to the P2416D the best contrast ratio is 100000000:1 and the worst is Mega Contrast.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative flatpanel monitors that have a 2000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available including the UltraSharp 24 (£171.00), the U2515H (£259.98), or the U2414H (£139.00) all from DELL which has a better Rating.
If you would prefer a PC display with a higher contrast ratio then you might also want to look at the Lenovo T2424 (£110.53) (3000000:1 and cheaper); or the LG 24GM77 (£229.99) (5000000:1 and higher rated).
