[CES 2018] For those who grew up in the 90s or early 2000s, you might recall how huge computer monitors used to be. They were massive in terms of sheer mass, and also extremely heavy, and if that wasn’t bad enough, display sizes back then weren’t particularly huge either. If anything it seems like Dell’s latest monitors offer up a stark contrast to the good old days.
The company has recently taken the wraps off two of their new Ultrathin monitors, with the S2719DM 27-inch monitor and the S2419HM 24-inch monitor. In terms of design, both monitors are more or less the same where it comes with a sleek stand with a small cutout at the back where users can thread their cables through for better cable management.
It measures 29mm at its thickest point and 5.5mm at its thinnest, and also comes with an InfinityEdge design that pretty much gives off the illusion that it is free of bezels. In terms of specs, the 24-inch display will offer up Full HD resolution at 60Hz, versus the 27-inch model which has QHD resolution and also at a 60Hz refresh rate.
Both display also feature response times of 8ms in normal mode, and 5ms in fast mode, and come with 2x HDMI-in 2.0 ports and 1x analog 2.0 audio line-out port (the 3.5mm jack). Both monitors will be available for purchase in February 2018, with the 27-inch Ultrathin going for $499.99, while the 24-inch model will retail for $299.99.
