11 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The DELL UltraSharp 25 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other PC displays of a comparable age and type to the UltraSharp 25 do have a built-in speaker.
It is worth also looking at other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker including the Fujitsu B27T-7 (£306.00), or the Philips 258B6QJEB (£268.78) which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the UltraSharp 25, the UltraSharp 25 does not have a built-in camera.
Alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at include the DELL UZ2715H (£406.76), or the Philips 241P6 (£208.78) which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The highest contrast ratio of the DELL UltraSharp 25 is 2000000:1. That's 60% less contrast ratio than the most frequently found dynamic contrast ratio of 5000000:1. Across all medium monitors that came out more than a year ago the worst contrast ratio is Mega Contrast and the best is 100000000:1.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC displays that have a 2000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available including because of it's better review score, the U2515H (£259.98), the P2415Q (£299.01), or the P2715Q (£299.99) all from DELL.
PC monitors with a higher contrast ratio that might also be worth looking at include the 29UB55 (£259.99) (5000000:1 and higher rated), or the 27MP77 (£340.96) (5000000:1 and higher rated) both from LG or the Lenovo Pro2820 (£250.85) (3000000:1 and higher rated).

The average maximum height adjustment of similar spec PC screens that are a comparable age to the UltraSharp 25 is 130mm.
