7 Reasons For
DELL Has Good Reviews for Its LCD Screens
DELL small monitors have good reviews on average and across all flatpanel monitors DELL is one of the better rated manufacturers.
A Top Selling PC Display
The P2016 is one the top selling PC monitor currently available.
LED Display Type
This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many LCD screens of this age and spec.
Other PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available that you might also want to look at include the Acer V206HQL[plb_1604373_price], or the DELL P1914S[plb_1740052_price] which has better reviews.
Very Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
When compared to other small monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the P2016, the DELL P2016's vertical viewing angle of 178 degrees is one of the widest. The vertical viewing angles of LCD screens that are a similar age to the P2016 range from 50° to 180°.
Fairly Bright Display Brightness
At 250 candellas per square meter, the DELL P2016 has a quite bright display brightness compared to most of the other PC monitors of this age and type. PC displays of this type and age have display brightness of between 200 cd/m² and 350 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 240 cd/m².
1440 X 900 (WXGA+) Graphics Resolution
The DELL P2016 has a maximum resolution of 1440 x 900 (WXGA+). That's 1% more resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1280 x 1024 (SXGA). The worst resolution of all small monitors that were launched around the same time as the P2016 is 720 x 400 and the best is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).
+2 More reasons for
The DELL P2016 is fairly shallow (only 46.5 millimeters) compared to most of the other LCD screens of a comparable spec and age to the P2016. The average depth of small monitors that were released around the same time as the P2016 is 82mm.
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most comparable spec LCD screens that have been available for more than a year do not have a built-in speaker. The DELL P2016 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker.
There are a number of other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to consider including the Viewsonic VA2055SM[plb_3066056_price] or the Philips 19P4QYEB[plb_3444351_price], or the AOC M2060SWDA2[plb_2949555_price].
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other flatpanel monitors of this age and type, the DELL P2016 is not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The DELL P2016 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec PC screens that have been on the market for a comparable time to the P2016 also do not have a built-in camera.
It is worth considering other PC monitors which also have a built-in camera including the Philips 200V4QSBR[plb_3175362_price].
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other small monitors that have been around for around the same time as the P2016, the DELL P2016 does not have an integrated card reader.
+3 More reasons against
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
Most small monitors that have been around for around the same time as the P2016 have between one and four USB 2.0 ports, including the DELL P2016 which has two USB 2.0 ports.
Fairly Slow Response Time
The fastest response time of small monitors that came out more than a year ago is 2ms, the slowest is 25ms, and the average response time is 7.5ms. The DELL P2016 has a fairly slow response time (8 milliseconds) compared to most of the other small monitors that are a similar age to the P2016.
3 Other reasons to consider the DELL P2016
Released Over a Year Ago
This flatpanel monitor has been on the market for over a year.
1440 X 900 Pixels Display Resolution
The DELL P2016 has a maximum display resolution of 1440 x 900 pixels. That's 1% less display resolution than the most frequently found display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels.
At 455.2 millimeters, the DELL P2016 has a pretty typical width compared to most of the other similar spec PC screens that have been available for a comparable time to the P2016.
LCD screens with a wider width that might also be worth looking at include the Asus VX207[plb_2736236_price] (466.9mm), or the Philips 203V5[plb_2081905_price] (465mm) which is also cheaper.
