Dell’s lineup of flat panel displays have proven themselves to be reliable, stylish, and typically right on par price-wise with some of the most inexpensive LCD monitors on the market. They’ve delivered exceptional bang for the buck, and throughout the years, they’ve managed to improve the quality of the screens and the overall feature sets while overall prices have gone down. While this is also true for the rest of the monitor industry, Dell has retained their reputation for reliability, which still sticks with them today. Sure, Dell displays don’t have the raw sexiness of Apple’s Cinema series displays, but they’re typically quite a bit cheaper while offering more functionality.
Perhaps the best part of Dell’s monitor division is that they never slow down. Around every year or so, we typically see Dell launch refreshes of their monitor designs, which typically include updated bezel styling, upgraded features, and new connectivity options. This year is no exception, and Dell is getting pretty feisty with its new WFP lineup. Today, we’ll be looking at the 24” model, which many (including us) consider to be the sweet spot in terms of price, productivity, and raw size. Studies have often shown 24” displays to be the best for price/productivity, even more so than 30” displays, as many find screens larger than 24” hard to navigate due to having so much space.
