This is the dell S2419NX a monitor with thin bezels, and a nice design. But what we really want to know is, is it worth picking up? Let’s get started with a little review.

The first thing you’ll notice about this monitor is the overall design, it’s nice and pretty with uncooked spaghetti skinny bezels, a faux silver metal stand. And by faux metal I mean, cheap looking plastic that just looks like metal. The back is a little different. There is a giant dell logo on the back, so that your wall can bathe in your brand name monitor and the decent glossy back housing. And by glossy, I mean, it. I can probably shave my face using this thing. Don’t actually do that.
Now onto specs, the monitor has some nice essentials like a 1920 by 1080 resolution IPS display, 60Hz, 5ms response time, 250 nits of brightness, has tilt, and has form-fitting bezels Dell has labeled “Infinity Edge”, sounding like a mediocre video game or terrible edgy username. I’m no expert on color, but the colors look nice and vibrant. The glossy display makes the colors look rich, even if that means allowing enormous amounts of glare. The back has 4 different ports, one for power, 2 hdmi, and an aux port. It’s pretty standard. The menu isn’t hard to use at all and was pretty easy to learn. Dell is aiming this thing as to the business market, but honestly, this would make one awesome looking general monitor that would fit in so many different types of rooms. The design is minimalistic, and I like that, a wallpaper looks more like a piece of art than a desktop on this monitor, with the only piece of branding is that small “dell” label. If you have a rgb light strip, then the lights will make this nice glow on the glossy underside of the monitor. I like to use this monitor for everyday tasks like emails, productivity and it’s just “ok” for gaming. There are definitely better options if you’re looking for that.
Now everything I said has been good, there are a couple of bad things about this monitor. For one, there’s no VESA mount. And that sucks, because these monitors would look amazing side by side with another, on a mount, floating there above your desk. And just putting monitors next to each other, still on their stands, takes up a lot of room. The price tag, is a bit obnoxious for what you’re getting. These thin bezels have a magic feature to them. They make your wallet thin too. $230 retail? Seriously? In this price range, you can start finding sharper monitors, monitors with vesa mounts, more features, etc. Compared to last year’s model, the Dell S2418H, I see almost no difference except for the stand. And If I’m being perfectly honest with you, I think I like the design of the last stand better. To be fair, at the timing of this video the S2419NX is on sale, and its predecessor was also on sale often at best buy, so I would consider checking that out.
Now, that’s just the negatives, that doesn’t mean this isn’t a good monitor. It is. It’s main selling point is its looks with that infinity edge display, providing a clean looking monitor. It comes at a premium price and lacks a VESA mount. If you’re looking for something a bit pretty, can hold its own as a monitor, and don’t mind it’s a little bit more expensive because of that. This might be your monitor. I think this thing would look great in any setup and you won’t regret it.
Anyway, guys what do you think? Does the design justify the price? Is this something you’d consider? Comment your thoughts down below, if you enjoyed this video give it a thumbs up, and well, maybe? Don’t forget to subscribe. I’ll see you guys next time.
