Dell has introduced a new lineup of UltraSharp monitors. The new U2421E comes with the familiar UltraSharp design but now in a 16:10 aspect ratio with a focus on connectivity and safe viewing.

The UltraSharp U2421E sports a platinum silver finish and a new joystick control for OSD navigation. The U2421E is a 24-inch WUXGA display (1900x1200) in a 16:10 aspect ratio for more vertical height. Like other UltraSharp displays before, the U2421E offers a nearly bezel-less InfinityEdge viewing experience. Dell has equipped the UltraSharp U2421E with ComfortView Plus blue light filtering that reduces blue light emissions without affecting the color accuracy too much.

One of the main USPs of the UltraSharp U2421E is its one-stop connectivity solution that includes both USB Type-C and Ethernet connectivity. The USB-C can be connected to a laptop for data, display, and for charging the laptop. The monitor also allows daisy chaining for up to a total of three monitors.

The U2421E also comes with an Ethernet port that allows for MAC address pass-through, PXE Boot, and Wake-on LAN capabilities. The port can also provide LAN connectivity when the monitor is connected to the laptop via USB-C.

Apart from the new 16:10 display and connectivity features, the UltraSharp U2421E also brings Dell's familiar suite of tools such as Dell Display Manager and Dell Premium Panel Exchange. Also bundled with the monitor is a stand that allows for tilt, pivot, and height adjustment up to 150 mm.

The Dell UltraSharp U2421E will retail for US$449.99 and is available now for purchase.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
