14 Reasons For
Based on 4,385 owner and expert reviews, DELL has excellent reviews for its PC monitors. DELL also has excellent reviews specifically for its medium monitors.
Running Costs Are Low
The U2417H is one of the cheaper to run PC displays that were released in the last year that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the U2417H will cost only £34 over 5 years to run.
A Top Selling Product
Across all PC monitors, the U2417H is one the most popular products currently on sale.
Just Released Six Months Ago
The U2417H was only relased by DELL six months ago. Newer flatpanel monitors like this one are likely to use more advanced technology.
Four USB Type-A Downstream Ports
The DELL U2417H is a four USB Type-A downstream port PC display.
Has One Cable Included
The DELL U2417H has a greater number of cables included than most medium monitors that came out around the same time as it. The most commonly found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this LCD screen. The cables included AC|DisplayPort|USB are also found on this DELL PC display.
+9 More reasons for
The DELL U2417H is a two DisplayPort PC display.
Quite Large Color Gamut
The smallest color gamut of recently released PC monitors is 68%, the largest is 120%, and the average color gamut is 83%. At 99 percent, the DELL U2417H has a quite large color gamut compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the U2417H.
1080p Video Mode
This PC display has a 480i|480p|576i|576p|720p|1080i|1080p video mode, which is the most commonly found video mode on flatpanel monitors that are a comparable age to it.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many new comparable spec PC displays.
Very Low Power Consumption When in PowerSave Mode
Medium monitors that came out in the last 12 months have power consumptions when in PowerSave mode of between 0.21W and 52W, and the average power consumption when in PowerSave mode is 6.5W. The DELL U2417H has one of the lower power consumptions when in PowerSave mode (only 0.3 Watts) amongst similar spec LCD screens of this age.
With a weight of only 3.2 kilograms, the DELL U2417H is fairly light compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for the last year. Across all the newly released similar spec PC displays the weights range from 2.6g to 33kg.
The DELL U2417H is fairly short (only 314.3 millimeters) compared to most of the other recently released PC displays. Across all the newly released similar spec PC monitors the heights range from 28mm to 620mm, and the average height is 360mm.
The DELL U2417H is one of the shallower flatpanel monitors that are a comparable age to the U2417H (only 46.1 millimeters) amongst medium monitors of this age. Latest medium monitors have depths of between 7mm and 610mm, and the average depth is 110mm.
13 Reasons Against
Price Increase of £31.78
The U2417H has increased in price by £31.78 in the last few days.
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The DELL U2417H does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other similar spec PC screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the U2417H.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the iiyama GB2788HS (£269.99) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most comparable spec flatpanel monitors that are a similar age to the U2417H do not have a built-in camera. The DELL U2417H is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
Not 3D Compatible
Most comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the U2417H are not 3D compatible. The DELL U2417H is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the Acer GN276HL (£276.18).
+10 More reasons against
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The DELL U2417H does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other latest medium monitors also do not have an integrated card reader.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens with an integrated card reader and we think the DELL U2413 (£250.00) is also worth considering.
Quite Low Maximum Height Adjustment
When compared to other PC monitors that came out in the last year, the DELL U2417H's maximum height adjustment of only 90 millimeters is one of the lowest. The average maximum height adjustment of medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the U2417H is 140mm, and the maximum height adjustments range from 20mm to 1,200mm.
Only 2000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The DELL U2417H has a maximum contrast ratio of 2000000:1. That's 98% less contrast ratio than a 100000000:1 LCD screen, which is the most frequently found contrast ratio. Across all new medium monitors the best contrast ratio is 100000000:1 and the worst is Mega Contrast.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC displays that have a 2000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and we think the U2413 (£250.00), and the U2415 (£186.67) both from DELL which has a better Rating is also worth considering.
PC monitors with a higher contrast ratio that might be worth looking at include the P2317H (£149.99) (4000000:1 and cheaper), or the P2417H (£120.00) (4000000:1 and cheaper) both from DELL.
Only HD HD Type
This flatpanel monitor has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many medium monitors that were launched in the last year.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many LCD screens that have been available for the last year.
Alternative PC monitors that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper PC screens such as the VA2759-smh (£174.63), or the VA2359-smh (£130.35) both from Viewsonic.
If the display resolution of this medium monitor is too few for you then you might want to look at the iiyama X2485WS-B3 (£216.62) (1920 x 1200), or the Philips 240S4QYMB (£245.56) (1920 x 1200) which is also cheaper.
Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This flatpanel monitor has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is the most frequently found typical contrast ratio on similar spec LCD screens that came out around the same time as it.
Quite High Maximum Power Consumption
The DELL U2417H has a fairly high maximum power consumption (68 Watts) compared to most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the U2417H. The average maximum power consumption of new medium monitors is 52W.
Quite Slow SmartResponse
At 6 milliseconds, the DELL U2417H has a quite slow smartResponse compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the U2417H. The average smartResponse of LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the U2417H is 4.5ms.
Quite Slow Response Time
The fastest response time of comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the U2417H is 1ms and the slowest is 20ms. At 8 milliseconds, the DELL U2417H has a quite slow response time compared to most of the other similar spec PC displays that have been on the market for a comparable time to the U2417H.
2 Other reasons to consider the DELL U2417H
LED Display Type
This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on new medium monitors.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available including a cheaper PC monitor such as the V7 L238DPH-2ES (£201.77) or you might consider a higher Rating PC monitor such as the DELL U2413 (£250.00).
At 537.6 millimeters, the DELL U2417H has a fairly average width compared to most of the other recently released medium monitors.
If you would consider a PC monitor with a wider width then you might want to look at the LG 24MP88HM (£181.22) (541mm).
