Ambitious companies produce ambitious products, and Dell is ambitious in more ways than three. With features such as Frame Rate Control contributing to the image quality, and the security lock slot to provide the option to lock your computer. As number 6 of the Best 27 inch Monitor buying guide, this 27-inch monitor finds balance by being capable of both stunning visuals and physical security, making it one of the best monitors to have.

Why We Like It – Dell 27 LED lit Monitor P2719H

The Dell P2719H is a lightweight monitor that occupies less space, offers security options, has striking visuals, and a flicker-free screen. It can also be adjusted in four ways to avoid bad angles.

Pros
  • Lightweight
  • Frame Rate Control
  • Four ways to adjust monitor
Cons
  • 8 ms response time
  • Some features can be odd for some users

Performance

Because this LCD monitor has an IPS panel, it has amazing colors and viewing angles. However, this panel type doesn’t have the best response time. By having a response time of 8 ms combined with a 60 Hz refresh rate, it’s more susceptible to lag. Although, you won’t find this lag on the Deco Gear 43 curved ultrawide E LED gaming monitor. It boasts a 120Hz refresh rate, as well as excellent color accuracy and viewing angles.

While a 120Hz refresh rate is great, 144Hz is even better. And, not all monitors offer 144Hz at great prices. To find out more, visit our review covering the Dell S2419HGF monitor. Or, check out our Dell 27-inch LED-lit monitor S2719DGF review, which boasts a 155Hz refresh rate.

Design

Unlike the Acer SB270 Bbix 27, Viewsonic VA2759, and the BenQ GL2760H, users can tilt, swivel, and pivot this monitor rather than just tilt. However, while having a stand lock is ambitious, this monitor needs a screw and screwdriver to adjust it. With how lightweight the monitor is, the stand’s base is stable despite being smaller than the bases of similar Dell monitors. There’s an array of ports: DisplayPort, HDMI, VGA, and USB 2.0 and 3.0, with the USB ports having one upstream USB port and four downstream USB ports. The USB ports won’t work unless there’s a cable connecting the upstream port to the user’s PC of choice, which may seem weird to some users.

Value

It’s adjustable enough for all sorts of combinations of angles, contrasts, and levels of brightness for comfort. Alongside the power cable, it conveniently comes with one USB cable and one Displayport cable. Users will have to buy an HDMI cable separately. While those cables contribute to the overall pricing, they wouldn’t affect it too much.

If price is an issue, you may want to consider a lower-priced monitor, but that still delivers on key features, as you’ll see in our write-up of the BenQ 27 inch IPS monitor with speakers.

Dell 27 LED lit Monitor P2719H Wrap Up

As a Dell monitor, it has awkwardly implemented features such as the stand lock and USB port availability. As a monitor in general, everything aside from those two features is passable. As long as it’s not used for gaming, it’s a great monitor for what it can do. But, if you need a monitor for gaming and still want a Dell, then check out our review of the Dell 27-inch LED-lit monitor S2719DGF.
