Design and Features
The Dell P2419H and P2719H offer a slim chassis that’s finished in the brand’s signature aesthetic treatment which has worked for a lot of tastes. The monitors aren’t as thin as the S-series HDR variants due to the substantially better physical features in these monitors. What’s great about them is that the whole line will come with a bezel-free face thanks to Dell’s Infinity Edge design.
That consideration makes the Dell P2419H and P2719H attractive to a broader audience, including those who’d want two or three in an array. This new P-Series will also come with 22-inch and 23-inch variants which broadens the consumer coverage even more. It’s also important to remember that only the options with an HC suffix have USB-C for single cable operation.
Connectivity on the Dell P2419H and P2719H is more than decent, thanks to the improved layout P-line monitors typically offer. Users can utilize DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, and VGA for video inputs along with five USB 3.0 slots for peripherals. Two of the latter are located at the side in a hub to make hot-swapping easier.
The Dell P2419H and P2719H belong to an upper class of mixed-use monitors so that they will ship equipped with a fully ergonomic stand. You can tilt, swivel, pivot, and adjust height for all models to make it easier to attain a perfect angle or arrange multiple devices according to your needs. You can opt for aftermarket armatures if space is a concern thanks to the VESA bolt pattern concealed by the removable stand.
Display and Performance
The Dell P2419H and P2719H will include a 24-inch and 27-inch IPS panel with a 1920 x 1080 FHD resolution, 60Hz refresh rate, and 5ms response time. A contrast ratio of 1000:1 is specified along with a 250cd/m2 (P2419H) and 300cd/m2 (P2719H) backlight. This series will only offer sRGB coverage, unlike the S2719DM and its siblings which have HDR features.
The IPS modules will support 8-bit color for excellent vibrancy with a presumed near perfect coverage of the sRGB gamut. The Dell P2419H and P2719H aren’t photo editing monitors, although, for those who work with sRGB, these could be viable options. Users can also expect an IPS panel with decent Gamma and contrast performance for solid colors and superb grayscale performance.
The Dell P2419H and P2719H are true-blue productivity-oriented monitors due to their OSD feature set and lack of gaming add-ons. One of the main highlights of the series is the Easy Arrange feature via Dell’s Display Manager suite. You can set or design window or app templates to create a predefined arrangement for smooth multi-tasking.
There is also an addition called Auto-Restore, which remembers your previous settings or activity. These two specialties enhance the Dell P2419H and P2719H’s viability for multi-monitor setups which are still popular despite the mass availability of ultrawides and super-ultrawides.
The brand states that you can increase your productivity by 18% with the Dell P2419H and P2719H’s combination of intuitive design and practical features. Unfortunately, gaming staples such as FreeSync or Overdrive modes are not included. The only point of consideration for multi-monitor gamers is the bezel-free face and the relative flexibility of the devices.
Finally, the Dell P2419H and P2719H are meant to be used for extended periods, so eye-safety standards certified by TUV are in place. Each variant will ship with various low blue light modes, including the ComfortView feature which optimizes the screen for prolonged usage.
Thoughts on the Dell P2419H and P2719H
The Dell P2419H and P2719H along with its smaller and USB-C equipped variants look like promising upgrades for business and offices which prioritize productivity. The functionality in each model is tuned for multi-tasking and eye safety to minimize your working time and fatigue. Gaming add-ons are absent this time around, although these products are excellent options for dual or triple monitor setups.
Both the Dell P2419H and P2719H are already available in the US via Dell’s main website and a few retailers. These two are priced at $280 and $360 respectively, which is a bit steep for a 1080p display. Take note that the HC models with USB-C will have an added premium of $50 when they launch.
