Also, the display has a nice matte-black texture, which gives the display an aesthetic look which you’ll be able to admire from a distance.
Also, the bezels are present; however, they are very thin to notice, and shouldn’t be an issue when it boils down total immersion.
With thin bezels, the Dell P2419HC has a durable stand as well. And thanks to its square-based shape, the stand has a solid foundation and doesn’t wobble nor move in case if you slightly nudge the display.
And the stock stand can adjust in height, swivel, tilt, and rotate, which is super convenient if you want to work in certain angles and positions.
If you’re not fully satisfied with the stock stand, you can always opt-in for a 100x100mm VESA mount, which allows the Dell P2419HC display to more flexible in terms of movements and monitor positioning.
The OSD panel is located on the right side of the display and consists of five buttons, including the power button. The buttons feel responsive; however, a joystick for navigational purposes would be excellent and convenient.
Located in the rear, bottom panel, you’ll be able to find the connectivity, which consists of one DisplayPort 1.2, one DP Out, one HDMI 1.4, one VGA, 4x USB 3.0, one USB-C, and one 3.5mm audio jack, which you can also connect your awesome active noise-canceling headphones, such as the Sony M3’s or the impressive Bose 700’s, which are some of the best headphones for gaming, and the best headphones for music as well.
Due to the location of the panel, you’ll have to turn the monitor upside down, and then you’ll be able to connect the necessary ports easier conveniently.
Located on the rear side of the monitor, you’ll be able to find four USB 3.0 ports that you can connect your mobile and other electronic devices with ease and with conveniences.
And thanks to its USB-C port, you’ll be able to effectively charge your MacBook Pros and laptops with ease and quickly get the batteries up to full status.
Unfortunately, there are no built-in speakers, but you’re always better off with a set of dedicated speakers or a pair of excellent headphones for sound immersion.
Overall the Dell P2419HC display looks and feels solid; you’ll have no problems of getting immersed, thanks to its thinly designed bezels as well, making the Dell P2419HC look aesthetically pleasing from afar.
