If your current monitor is starting to seem a bit old and clunky, it’s time to treat yourself to an upgrade. Displays have made some big jumps in the last few years, and prices continue to fall. Take this 24-inch IPS monitor from Dell for example. It’s sleek, beautiful, and reasonably priced.
From a technical perspective, this 24-inch model has what you’ve come to expect from a nice monitor. It has an 8ms gray-to-gray response time, a 1000-to-1 typical contrast ratio (two million-to-one dynamic), a viewing angle of 178 degrees (horizontal and vertical), a 60Hz refresh rate, a DVI-D port, a DisplayPort, a VGA port, four downstream USB ports, and an upstream USB port. But truth be told, what really sets this monitor apart from the competition is its aspect ratio.
With a resolution of 1920×1200, this screen is actually 16:10. You get all of the resolution of a typical 1080p display plus 120 extra lines. It might not seem like much on paper, but the extra height comes in pretty handy — especially with vertically-oriented content. I’m currently using a (perfectly fine) 16:9 monitor, but I’ve found that I miss the extra breathing room of my old 16:10 workhorse.
Usually, this monitor is valued at about $370, but Dell currently has it on sale for $289.99 (plus any applicable taxes). Without any need for a coupon or rebate, you’ll save 21% off the sticker price. Better yet, you won’t even have to pay shipping. And on top of all of that, you’ll also get a $125 promo Dell eGift card, so you can continue to save money with your next purchase. This deal is just way too good to pass up, so don’t hesitate!
