Dell P2421D QHD monitor

Quick product tour of the 24-inch QHD IPS monitor Dell P2421D

Dell P2421D QHD IPS monitor

We ordered the Dell P2421D 24-inch QHD IPS monitor couple of days ago and we can't wait to receive and test it for the first time. 

Unfortunately, orders these days have some significant delays, so meanwhile we decided to share some of its product features and specs.

Here is a detailed list of everything more important about the Dell P2421D:

As you see these are some pretty good specs. To be honest this would be the first IPS monitor over Full HD that we will test. We expect the QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 at 60 Hz and 300 cd/m² brightness to pop up really nice in video and graphics work. 

Hopefully our work with Premiere Pro and Lightroom will be a bit more accurate and of course more pleasant.

Dell P2421D PC monitor - video

In the past five years we have been using the Dell E2314H and it served us well. It is a bit outdated though and we definitely needed upgrade. Of course this is not the only monitor we are using but this one is the oldest and proved the most reliable (moved it to couple of different locations).

Dell P2421D - product price

The average asking price for the Dell P2421D is around $260 but we are sure you will find it on better Black Friday and Christmas deals in the next couple of weeks. The official retail price at Dell US is $360 but is currently listed at $270.

Once again, we are super excited to get our hands on the Dell P2421D monitor. Be sure that we will make a full consumer test and review and share our feedback with you.
