Some people wrote in their reviews that the DELL UP2516D was good looking. Marilyn Taylor wrote on Amazon in October this year “A beautiful monitor, easy to put together” in her DELL UP2516D review.
Six USB Type-A Downstream Ports
The UP2516D has more USB Type-A downstream ports than most of the medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months.

+6 More reasons for
LED Display Type
This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many recently released medium monitors.
Alternative PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available which you might also want to consider include the DELL U2413 ($409.99), the Philips 240S4QYMB, or the Benq GL2706PQ which has better reviews.
Six USB 3.0 Ports
The DELL UP2516D has more USB 3.0 ports than most of the recently released PC screens. This PC monitor is a six USB 3.0 port LCD screen compared to most of the comparable spec PC screens that are a similar age to the UP2516D which only have between two and five USB 3.0 ports.
Quite Many Display Colour Count
The average display colour count of similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the UP2516D is 240M, and the display colour counts range from 16M to 1,100M. At 1,070 million, the UP2516D has a quite many display colour count compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the UP2516D.
1440p Video Mode
The most resolution of the UP2516D is 1440p. That's 33% more resolution than the most common video mode of 1080p. The worst resolution of all comparable spec PC monitors that came out in the last year is 480i and the best is 2160p.
2560 X 1440 Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution of the UP2516D is 2560 x 1440. That's 78% more resolution than a 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) LCD screen, which is the most common resolution. The worst resolution of all medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the UP2516D is 640 x 350 and the best is 3840 x 2160.
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most of the other PC displays that were released in the last year have a built-in speaker, however the UP2516D does not have a built-in speaker.
The UP2516D is not 3D compatible. Most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that came out in the last year are also not 3D compatible.
LCD screens which are 3D compatible that might be worth looking at include the Acer GN276HL ($249.99), or the Benq Zowie XL2430 which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months, the UP2516D does not have an integrated card reader.
We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens with an integrated card reader and we think the DELL U2413 ($409.99) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The DELL UP2516D does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other new similar spec flatpanel monitors also do not have a built-in camera.
+3 More reasons against
Quite Slow Response Time
At 6 milliseconds, the UP2516D has a quite slow response time compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the UP2516D. The fastest response time of recently released similar spec PC screens is 1ms, the slowest is 20ms, and the average response time is 5.2ms.
Very High Power Consumption When in PowerSave Mode
The average power consumption when in PowerSave mode of medium monitors that came out in the last year is 7.8W, and the power consumptions when in PowerSave mode range from 0.21W to 52W. At 38 Watts, the DELL UP2516D has a quite high power consumption when in PowerSave mode compared to most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that were released around the same time as the UP2516D.
