Budget friendly awesomeness
In our Dell SE2416HX review, we constantly thought that there was no way this monitor was as cheap as it was. Even at the non sale price, it’s well worth it. The Dell SE2416HX budget monitor comes with a wonderful IPS panel and looks great. It comes in a few different variations of 22″ (with a TN panel), 23.8″, and 27″ greatness. The glossy thin bezels look stellar and make the monitor look very modern. The display has great colors, but not perfect, and is fine for most daily tasks. The monitor features a 6 millisecond response time gray to gray, which isn’t too bad even for a budget gaming monitor. The screen has a standard resolution of 1920 x 1080 and clocks in with a refresh rate of 60Hz. The SE2416HX has a wide viewing angle of 178 degrees vertical and horizontal making it viewable from most angles. The backlight LED looks nice, but is nothing to write home about. The anti-glare coating held up quite well for us in our trials.
The monitor’s buttons are quite small to press and it feels a little awkward, but they’re also not distracting at all. The silver stand looks very clean and modern. The SE2416HX has the usual connections via VGA and HDMI, but also features legacy connections which is a nice touch. The plug and play functionality means that it requires no setup and works straight out of the box. The monitor is ENERGY STAR certified and is designed to reduce the environmental footprint it puts out. Helping the environment and budget friendly, we like that.
