The Full HD UltraSharp models are well respected for their all-round performance, ergonomic flexibility and minimalistic designs. A notable progression in the series has been bezels which have become increasingly slender. The U2417H having particularly slender bezels. The Dell U2419H is the next evolution in the ~24” Full HD UltraSharp range. Whilst it isn’t clear from current press shots that the bezels are necessarily thinner than the already impressively slender 17H, they’re certainly slim. And the screen itself appears to have trimmed down a bit. The OSD is controlled by pressable buttons on the underside of the bottom bezel, towards the right. The power LED is integrated into the power button in the now usual vertical slit-style design, glowing white when the monitor is on.
A 23.8” IPS-type (In-Plane Switching or similar) panel is used with 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution and 60Hz refresh rate. A matte anti-glare screen surface is employed, likely with a similar medium (‘relatively light’) finish to its predecessor. A 1000:1 static contrast and 178°/178° viewing angles are specified, with strong viewing angle performance and colour consistency a basic expectation for the panel type. 8-bit colour is supported (6-bit + FRC) whilst the factory calibration promises an average DeltaE of <2. A flicker-free (DC dimming) WLED backlight is used with a 250 cd/m² typical maximum luminance. A key change from older models in the series is an improvement to colour gamut. This is still considered a standard gamut model in the sense that extended colour spaces like Adobe RGB and DCI-P3 are not supported, although 99% sRGB coverage and 85% DCI-P3 coverage is specified. Indicating more extension beyond sRGB than the older models – although an sRGB emulation mode will be present as well.
A 5ms grey to grey response time is specified, whilst the ‘ComfortView’ Low Blue Light (LBL) preset is included to aid relaxing viewing. The stand is fully adjustable (tilt, swivel, height and pivot adjustment) and attaches centrally using a quick-release mechanism. It can be removed to reveal 100 x 100mm VESA holes. The rear is predominantly matte silver plastic, with some black matte plastic at the bottom. The ports and associated features include, as shown from left to right on the diagram below; AC power input (internal power converter), HDMI 1.4, DP 1.4 (input), stand lock, DP 1.4 (output, for MST daisy chaining), 3.5mm audio out and 4 USB 3.0 ports (plus upstream). 2 of the USB ports are located at the rear and 2 at the left side of the screen, with 1 of each pair supporting BC 1.2 fast-charging.
