~24″ models have been key members of Dell’s UltraSharp lineup for many years. The U2422H and U2422HE are 23.8″ Full HD offerings which bolster the series. The sleek and minimalistic styling the series is well known for features, with an ‘InfinityEdge’ bezel design for all 4 sides. We prefer to call this dual-stage, owing to the including of a panel border that’s flush with the rest of the screen plus a slim hard plastic outer component. The bottom bezel is thicker than the top and side bezels, but still fairly slender. The stand neck and upper face of the base have a satin silver-coloured plastic finish for a bit of visual contrast. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by the a joystick at the rear of the monitor, towards the right side as viewed from the front. A dedicated power button is also included there.
A 23.8″ IPS-type panel is used with 1920 x 1080 (Full HD or 1080p) resolution, 60Hz refresh rate and matte anti-glare screen surface. A 1000:1 static contrast is specified alongside 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles. 8-bit colour support is included, with the monitor calibrated with a DeltaE <2 for the sRGB colour space. A a flicker-free WLED backlight is used with a blue peak shifted to less energetic wavelengths to potentially improve viewing comfort; Dell calls this ‘ComfortView Plus’. The backlight affords a colour gamut of 85% DCI-P3 (100% sRGB coverage) and a 250 cd/m² typical maximum luminance. A Low Blue Light (LBL) setting in the form of a ‘5000K’ colour temperature setting is also included. A 5ms grey to grey response time is specified – approach with caution, as usual. The included stand attaches via a quick-release mechanism and is fully adjustable. It can be removed and replaced by an alternative 100 x 100mm VESA compatible solution. The ports are plentiful on this model, facing downwards. They include; AC power input (internal power converter), HDMI 1.4, DP 1.4, DP out (for MST daisy chaining), USB-C upstream (data only), 2 USB 3.2 Gen2 ports and a 3.5mm audio output. Outside of the main port area, at the bottom of the monitor for easy access, there’s an additional USB 3.2 Gen2 port with fast-charging and a USB-C downstream port with 15W PD. The ‘HE’ model includes some additional ports in the main port area; USB-C (90W PD, DP Alt Mode, upstream data), another USB 3.2 Gen2 port and an RJ45 port.
Further details on the ‘H’ model and ‘HE’ model are available on the manufacturer’s website. The ‘H’ has an initial list price of ~$360 and ‘HE’ of ~$460 USD. A variant of the ‘H’ model with different accessories included is also listed in some regions; the U2422HX.
