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.


Thin bezel of 6.9mm, good connectivity and quick charging. 

Nothing worth mentioning.
