Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP review

Our Rating: We rate this 4.5 out of 5

The Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP is a well-designed, fully adjustable 24in monitor whose ports and features comfortably justify its price.

The Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP is a well-designed, fully adjustable 24in monitor whose ports and features comfortably justify its price.

Framing the Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP's display is a thin black bezel highlighted with silver accents on the top and the bottom. Dell includes video inputs for every possible connection: component, composite, Display Port, DVI (two ports), HDMI, S-Video, and VGA.

The Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP's on-screen display (OSD) menu is clearly labeled and easy to navigate. Features include picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture, which displays two input sources side-by-side. This model comes with four USB ports - two on the back and two on the left side. Also on the left side, just above the USB ports, is a built-in reader for Compact Flash, MMC, MS, SD, and xD memory cards.

Dell bundles the Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP with a CD containing drivers, a set-up guide, and a users' guide. Hardware extras include four connection cables for Display Port, DVI, USB, and VGA connectivity.

The images produced by this display resulted in a score of Very Good from our Test Centre. The Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP's combination of good performance, input options, adjustability (it tilts, swivels, pivots, and can be adjusted for height), and excellent OSD make it the most full-featured and versatile monitor we've tested.

  • Dell ST2310 review

    Dell ST2310

    Following in the footsteps of such practical, moderately priced widescreen LCDs from Dell as the E228WFP, the Ultrasharp 1908WFP, and the G2210, the Dell ST2310 is a solid display that performs well. It's not splashy or feature-rich, but it does deliver nice image quality.
