Dell has been number one in monitor sales for 17 straight quarters, and they are looking to continue this trend with the announcement of seven new and refreshed monitors. Three of the new models stand out because of their USB-C connections, giving us an indication of future trends as we move towards possible universal usage of USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 replacing various other non-compatible data and display standards.

All seven new monitors sit within Dell’s P-series range and feature the three-sided slim bezel design that we’ve come to expect from the company. The P-series are classified as productivity monitors with the sorts of comfort and usability features that you would expect in a work environment. The stand allows for tilt, swivel, and height adjustment showing proper ergonomic credentials, and the area of the stand's base is now approximately 23 percent smaller compared to the previous models reducing desktop (or monitor platform) footprint. The thin side bezels make it easier to move from one monitor to another in a multi-monitor setup, and Dell’s ‘Easy Arrange’ feature helps with aligning screens.

Dell apparently had the idea of using these slim-bezel monitors in a dual-monitor setup too, and they offer an adjustable monitor stand with quick attach/release compatibility for the P-series. If keeping the two monitors aligned isn’t your ideal setup then you can take advantage of the independent pivot, tilt, swivel, and height adjustment. Although the stand and quick release setup is optimized for the P-series, it is also compatible with 19 to 27-inch monitors with VESA mounts.

The four standard monitors come in 22, 23, 24, and 27-inch arrangements, while the USB-C versions come in 22, 24, and 27-inch options. Dell states that their USB-C monitors conform to USB-C specifications and can deliver up to 65 watts of power. They allow daisy-chaining two FullHD monitors via DisplayPort 1.2.

I grew up in a family surrounded by technology, starting with my father loading up games for me on a Commodore 64, and later on a 486. In the late 90's and early 00's I started learning how to tinker with Windows, while also playing around with Linux distributions, both of which gave me an interest for learning how to make software do what you want it to do, and modifying settings that aren't normally user accessible. After this I started building my own computers, and tearing laptops apart, which gave me an insight into hardware and how it works in a complete system. Now keeping up with the latest in hardware and software news is a passion of mine.
