This LCD screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many comparable spec PC displays that are a similar age to it.
With a width of only 520.7 millimeters, the DELL S2316M is fairly narrow compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the S2316M. The average width of similar spec PC screens that have been around for around the same time as the S2316M is 590mm.
