With three new office monitors, DELL addresses users who also appreciate modern LED-backlight, ergonomic features and advanced connectivity options on a display with TN panel technology.
Equipped with a 20-inch diagonal and 1,600 x 900 pixels, the entry level model Dell UltraSharp P2012H for less than 180 Euros provides the same specifications as the larger series models: 250 cd/m² of brightness, a 1,000:1 static contrast ratio (dynamic: 2,000,000:1), 5ms response time and viewing angles of 160/170 degrees (v/h).
The manageable range of inputs of the monitors is also identical: You have VGA, DVI (with HDCP copy protection) and an USB dual hub. On the stand, the panel can be rotated, pivoted to portrait mode and height-adjusted by 13 centimetres. The maximum power consumption of the displays is twice as high as the typical, for example, 45W (maximum) and 20W (typical) at P2012H.

Providing 21.5 inches, the full-HD screen Dell UltraSharp P2212H is available at about 190 Euros and consumes 25 watts in typical operation. A size larger is the Dell UltraSharp P2312H (23 inches), the power consumption of which ranges from 25 to 50 watts. The DELL monitors are available since mid-November and are provided with a warranty period of three years.
