Dell equips its Latitude 3510 with a disappointing display

Dell's 15.6-inch business notebook offers decent battery life, low noise emissions, and a backlit keyboard. Unfortunately, its dim low-contrast FHD IPS display is disappointing.

Dell’s Latitude 3510 is an affordable 15.6-inch business notebook. Its case lacks high-quality premium materials. Instead, Dell clads its entry-level business notebook in gray plastic with a matte roughened surface. The sides are an exception as they are made out of smooth glossy plastic.

Our review unit featured a Core i3-10110U (Comet Lake) dual-core processor offering enough performance for office and internet applications. The CPU has access to 8 GB of RAM (single-channel, two slots, up to 32 GB) as well as a 256 GB NVMe SSD.

Its FHD IPS display is certainly not one of the best performers. It is too dim, too low in contrast, its color space coverage is too low, and to make matters worse it also suffers from PWM flickering. Its only benefits are its matte surface and its viewing angles.

Battery life is decent and on a part with its competitors. The included Dell power supply plugs into the proprietary charging port. However, the device can also be charged via USB-C thanks to its support for Power Delivery.

Dell also offers Latitude SKUs with LTE modem. Our review unit did not feature one. It cannot be added retroactively either since it lacks the SIM slot, the antennas, and the necessary port.

More information as well as a variety of benchmark results can be found in our Dell Latitude 3510 NK2MC review.
