Dell adds decades-old tech to its latest touchscreen monitor which is very much likely to be a game changer. The 24in p2424HT is the very first touchscreen display of Dell to be fitted with a LAN port.
Dell Adds Tech to Its Touchscreen Monitor
Computer-making company Dell is now pitching its latest monitor as a game changer in the reported battle to banish notspots, thus allowing home workers to easily connect to the internet with an Ethernet cable.
A LAN port for those that don’t know is something of a rarity for a monitor that is fitted with touchscreen capabilities, with Dell’s 24in P2424HT monitor now geared to users who want the fastest speeds without the potential for their Wi-Fi connection reportedly cutting out anytime. It is also the first touchscreen display of Dell to be fitted with a LAN port.
Priced at a reported fee of $369, the LCD monitor in question offers Full HD resolution and it is also equipped with a ten-point multitouch functionality as well as a contrast ratio of 1,000:1, alongside a 178° viewing angle.
Dells 24in P2424HT Ethernet Port
Its Ethernet port in question is one of a host of rich connectivity options, and this is inclusive of USB-C (USB 3.2 Gen 1) with power delivery of up to 90W, along with two USB-A ports (USB 3.2 Gen 1), DisplayPort, HDMI and then a 3.5mm audio jack. The port also features KVM support, thus meaning that you can work on multiple monitors with just a single keyboard and mouse pairing.
And as far as Ethernet connectivity goes, TechRadar Pro recently approached Dell to ask whether the LAN port enables for gigabit speeds, or whether it is just limited to 10/100 – data transfer speeds of 10Mbps or 100Mbps on the Fast Ethernet, just so you know.
Dell’s 24in P2424HT Drawbacks
It would however be a disappointment in the event that the Dell P2424HT lacks gigabit connectivity, thus adding to the lack of 4K resolution, which in question is a significant omission given its retail price. That being said, the monitor however does come with a three-year warranty should things go south.
The Dell P2424HT Elsewhere features an LED edge light system that Dell has reportedly claimed will help boost display clarity, alongside flicker-free technology so that workers who are staring at the screen for long hours can easily and effectively avoid eye strain. This in question comes alongside Low Blue Light technology and Dell ComfortView Plus which is the always-on, built-in feature of the firm that helps to reduce low blue light emissions.
Weight and Other Features
The 24 in-display on the other hand also comes with a stand that lets tilt angles -5° to +60°, swivel angles of -30° to +30°, and then a height adjustment of up to 110.52mm – with the monitor in question weighing 7.9kg in all.
Should it is that you wish to wall-mount it or even attach it to another stand or desk arm, however, know that it also supports the VESA mount standard.
