Review: Dell UltraSharp U2414H


Dell serves up oodles of features and strong image quality for sensible money

The Dell UltraSharp U2414H balances fine image quality with a great selection of features. Ultimately, we prefer the larger resolution of its predecessor, the UltraSharp U2412M – which is still on sale – but it’s a close-run thing. If the Full HD...

Dell UltraSharp U2414H


Dell's UltraSharp monitors have spent many a month on the PC Pro A-List, and at first glance the latest 24in model, the UltraSharp U2414H, looks like a strong contender for the budget monitor top spot. It offers a smart physical design, a...

New revision is perfect!


Make sure you get a newer model with Rev 2 or higher then all will be good!

I initially got a Rev 1 manufactured in June 2014 which had defective buttons which would stop working. But the replacement I got from Dell is Rev 3 which is perfect. Excellent display, DP 1.2 with chaining 2 of them is working great. Minimal light...

Some earlier versions of this monitor had multiple issues regarding buggy DP 1.2 chaining. Buttons stop responding after some time. Light bleed in some panels. (I saw bad light bleed in a display unit in Micro Center

Great for multi-monitor


I bought 3 of these to use in a multi monitor set up (replacing one 30" and a 21") gives me about the same number of pixels (just set up wider). Great for graphic design or 3D art creation work. I have had no problem with the touch buttons (like some...

Good color ; Elegant design ; IPS ; Narrow Bezel

Doesn't auto detect input ; The stands don't hold the monitors totally level, so getting 3 to line up on a desk is tricky. I hope to get a 3 monitor stand eventually to fix that ; When computer is off and they are not receiving signal they go into...

Good quality display


Obviously, the few cons I have with this display are not enough to mar my otherwise great experience. I use this monitor for work with Lightroom for outputting photos to the web, and I calibrate my displays with a Datacolor Spyder 4. In terms of sRGB...

When properly calibrated, this display has very good color reproduction and dynamic range - 100% sRGB color space, and roughly 84% of the Adobe color space. If you do photo editing or graphics work for the web, this display will fit your needs. People...

What frustrates me the most about this display is the flat capacitive menu input on the bottom bezel. I have perfect vision, and I constantly misjudge where the power and menu 'buttons' are in less than optimal light. The printing for the menu inputs...

Very impressed


I am primarily using this for gaming purposes. I bought this to use alongside a 144 Hz monitor, mostly used for movies and reading ; The physical bezel is ~2 mm thick. There is also an internal border around the panel, about 4 mm thick. However, even...

No DVI port. Not really a con as this is something you'd research before purchasing. Still would have been nice ; DisplayPort and HDMI input can often result in the monitor (not unique to this one) to be recognized by the GPU as a TV rather than...

Consumer review by: Spurg (



I don't see Dell ever making an attempt to fix these issues if they haven't yet. The fact that these cost this much is ridiculous. Also, keep in mind these monitors don't have DVI ports. First and last time I ever buy a Dell product. This is ridiculous.

Good color consistency ; Sleek design ; No ghosting when gaming ; Adjustable height. Still doesn't raise very high though. So if you want it at eye level plan on still setting something under the stand. And I'm not even that tall (5'8")

Touch sensitive monitor controls won't respond consistently. Have to press them just right or they wont respond ; DP doesn't work the majority of the time or stops responding. Don't plan on daisy chaining the DPs. So don't make the mistake i did and...

Great monitors


Don't let these Display port 1.2 MST negative reviews scare you. If you know what you're doing and play with the settings it works 100%. Pro Tip: Make sure when you set these up for the first time to enable Display port 1.2 on all of the monitors. When...

Picture looks great. Buttons function perfectly, Display port 1.2 works perfectly with a triple monitor daisy chain set up

The menu buttons sometimes (rarely) don't register a touch event

DP Daisychaining has consistent issues


I bought 32 of these monitors for my office. They consistently have problems that I have to fix, and I thoroughly regret purchasing them. We've been using the Displayport 1.2 feature to daisychain these monitors. This feature is very spotty--several...

Base is solid, easily adjusted ; Very thin bezel ; Setup is easy

Displayport daisychaining from Surface Pro 3 dock consistently fails, often doesn't work at all ; Picture not very bright, even at maximum
