Dell UltraSharp U2415

Almost everyone that works in an office space uses a monitor in the work, and almost everyday I speak to customers that complain about the screen that they have. What I get from that is that their IT manager don’t really know what they are doing or just don’t care, because they got a good deal on some shit monitors.

I think people often forget how many hours their employees actually look at their screens each day.

First and foremost they should always have a math screen to avoid glare and reflexion from light, which can annoy our eyes. Home screens and cinematic screens usually have the widescreen aspect of 16:9, but in the office space it is recommended with widescreen aspect 16:10. The 24 inch and 27 inch screens are the most popular size at my company; the reason for that is it is just big enough so you don’t need to strain your eyes. A resolution of 1920 x 1200 at 60Hz is usually more than good enough to your office tasks.

I have lately sold some 4k resolution monitors, but some customers struggle to make them work when they connect to them through docking, because some computers struggle with scaling. I would recommend most of my customers to just get a 1920 x 1200 resolution screen, the exception would be employees that work with more graphic materials.

So let`s get over to the monitor in the heading the Dell UltraSharp U2415. The Dell screen is something I would call a sexy office screen. With it’s thin bezel that’s only 6.9mm thick, it looks almost borderless when putting it together with another screen. The screen offers good connectivity, two HDMI, a Display Port and a mini Display Port. In the back of the screen it has a quickly charge BC1.2 compatibility for fast charging of devices that uses USB 3.0. Lastly they have finally gotten rid of the dreaded analog cable also known as VGA.
