1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most commonly found graphics resolution on medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to it.
The depths of PC monitors that came out in the last 12 months range from 7mm to 610mm. With a depth of only 50.3 millimeters, the DELL P2417H is one of the shallower medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the P2417H amongst medium monitors of this age.
12 Reasons Against
Price Has Recently Increased by £34.98
The price of the P2417H has increased by £34.98 in the last 4 days.
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The DELL P2417H does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other new PC displays which have a built-in speaker.
It is worth also looking at other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the Acer RT240Y (£152.82), or the Hannspree HT225HPB (£164.64) which is also cheaper.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most medium monitors that came out in the last 12 months do not have a built-in camera. The DELL P2417H is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most new medium monitors do not have an integrated card reader. The DELL P2417H is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
There are a number of other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader which you might want to look at including the DELL U2413 (£250.00) which is also higher rated.
+9 More reasons against
Not 3D Compatible
Most medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the P2417H are not 3D compatible. The DELL P2417H is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
Only HD HD Type
This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on medium monitors that are a similar age to it.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This LCD screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many medium monitors that were released in the last 12 months.
There are a number of alternative flatpanel monitors that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available that you might want to look at including the Acer R241Y (£109.99), or the AOC I2275PWQU (£153.95) which is cheaper; or the Samsung C24F396FHU (£163.39) which has a better Rating.
If the display resolution of this DELL PC monitor is not many enough for you then you might also want to consider the Benq ZOWIE RL2455 (£144.98) (1920 x 1200) which is also cheaper.
Only 4000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The DELL P2417H has a maximum contrast ratio of 4000000:1. That's 96% less contrast ratio than a 100000000:1 PC monitor, which is the most frequently found contrast ratio. Across all medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months the best contrast ratio is 100000000:1 and the worst is Mega Contrast.
We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other LCD screens that have a 4000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and we think cheaper LCD screens such as the DELL P2317H (£149.99) is also worth considering.
If the contrast ratio of this PC display is not high enough for you then you might also want to look at the HP Z22n (£143.28) (5000000:1) which is also cheaper.

Fairly Slow Response Time
The response times of comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been available for around the same time as the P2417H range from 1ms to 20ms. With a response time of 6 milliseconds, the DELL P2417H has one of the slower response times amongst medium monitors of this age.

We compared all the other PC screens that have an LED Display to this PC monitor and we think the DELL U2413 (£250.00) which has a better Rating; or the Acer RT240Y (£152.82) which is cheaper are also worth considering.
