4 Reasons For
2ms Faster Response Time
The DELL U2415 has a response time of 6ms, however the DELL U2515H is an 8ms response time PC monitor (2ms slower).

A faster (shorter) response time is better because fast moving graphics will appear smoother and the gaming experience will feel more responsive.

DELL U2415 DELL U2515H
Tftcentral.co.uk logo
Dell's UltraSharp range of screens has always been popular and the 24" models have probably been at the fore front of this interest ever since their 2405FPW screen was released in 2004 and was probably the first "affordable" 24" model on the market. ...
Approved
Good factory calibration and great all-round performance
Flicker free backlight and light AG coating on new model
Decent responsiveness and very low lag for gaming
Missing DVI and VGA connections, may be limited for some
Lack of 16 9 aspect ratio option problematic for external multimedia devices potentially
More IPS glow than the 2414H panel
We had high hopes for the U2415 display after recent Dell models like the P2414H and U2414H had impressed us with their solid all round performance. Thankfully it didn't disappoint. The U2415 is for all intents and purposes a 16:10 version of the U24...

It's been a busy time for Dell recently, with all kinds of new models being released in their ever-popular monitor range. We have reviewed their new UltraSharp 24" class models, the U2414H and U2415, and recently their new 27" U2715H. We've got s......
Approved
Nice low cost while still offering 2560 x 1440 resolution of the larger 27" models
Good default factory setup and excellent contrast ratio for an IPS panel
Good response times and low lag
Missing DVI and VGA connections, may be limited for some
IPS glow at normal levels, had maybe hoped for low-glow like recent 2414H
Caution advised with small pixel pitch for some users
Readers won't be disappointed to hear that the U2515H compares very well to the other recent Dell UltraSharp screens. It is very similar overall to the smaller 24" U2414H / U2415 and 27" U2715H models. The feature set, spec, connections and design ar...
