DELL "2340M vs 2440L" : comparison

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just wanted to share my going-over these two displays with you guys..

Please note that is how I saw the monitors in the store!

And this is a comparison between the two and not a review "I don't own any of them YET"

 

## DELL S2340M

- Pros:

o The colors are so alive and far from any PC monitor I’ve seen before

o Sharp and crisp pictures

o Wide viewing angles

o Stylish with very elegant gray bezel at the bottom

o Reasonably priced ($165~$199 at the time of this review)

o IPS panel

- Cons

o I strained so much to make the monitor show WHITE but I couldn’t.

Tried it with warm & cool and with every setting available, it just show “yellowish tinted WHITE”

o Build quality is really bad, I could see between the frame and the panel,

I end up pressing softly against the panel to find out that it is spongy all over, ike it’s made of flimsy plastic

o These monitor are very reflective, I own a MacBook Pro and I’ve seen a lot of iMac’s around me.

If I’ll give a score to the MacBook Pro in reflectiveness it will be: “3.5 out of 5” while S2340M “4.5 out of 5”

o Short stand, making the monitor stand lower than anyone would prefer

o No HDMI input

OVERALL: 74 out of 100

 

## DELL S2440L

- Pros

o Solid build, the glass look rigid with no spongy spots what so ever

o Touch sensitive OSD buttons

o Edge to edge glass

o HDMI input

o A bit responsive than the 2340M, although this is in paper and I couldn’t tell the difference or notice it

o The white does look white and the contrast overall seems better, colors are good but not as the 2340M’s

o Reasonably priced ($179~$240 at the time of this review)

- Cons

o Short stand, making the monitor stand lower than anyone would prefer

o The Viewing angles are lower than the ones on the 2340M

o Very reflective, if I’ll give a score to the MacBook Pro in reflectiveness it will be: “3.5 out of 5”

while S2440L takes “4.5 out of 5”

o Glass seems distant from the panel somehow, it gives the feeling of looking inside a box

OVERALL: 86 out of 100

 

* Note that I lowered the brightness on the monitor and take my phone to watch for any pulse-duration modulation (PDM)

And during my changes I end up with nothing. I can’t guarantee that this the case on your panel though
