Dell IPS Computer Monitors: More Screens, Fewer Problems


Whether at work or at home, having an additional monitor makes life easier. You’ll no longer have to constantly minimize or “alt-tab” through multiple windows to check documents, edit spreadsheets, or answer instant messages. With multiple displays, you’ll have more screen real estate so you can keep what matters most on top at all times. Dell’s P-Series monitors, available in 19, 20, 22, 23, and 23.8" models, offer just that, with various connectivity options including VGA, HDMI, and DisplayPort, making them compatible with almost any system.

Each of these displays is built with In-Plane-Switching (IPS) panels that provide you with wide 178° viewing angles and vivid color reproduction for an immersive viewing experience. The only one that doesn’t, though, is a 22" variant, which uses a Twisted Nematic (TN) panel. Unlike IPS panels, the TN panel does not provide you with wide viewing angles or vibrant colors; instead, it offers a low response time of 5 ms. Response time refers to the speed at which the pixels can change from one color to another. Therefore, you’ll be able to experience more fluid, blur-free transitions, ideal for watching videos and playing games.

In terms of screen real estate, these monitors are available in a wide variety of resolutions, ranging from 1280 x 1024 to 1920 x 1080, depending on the screen size, of course, so you can enjoy crisp and clear HD content. Combine that with a 250 cd/m² brightness rating, support for 16.7 million colors, and a 1000:1 static contrast ratio, and you’ll be able to enjoy pictures and videos with darker blacks and brighter bright colors. After connecting the display to your system, the stand lets you tilt, swivel, pivot, and adjust its height so you can find the perfect position for your viewing preference. On the other hand, you can install an alternate mount or stand using the VESA mounting holes on the back.
