2018 S-Series Monitors 

Finally, in addition to introduction of new PCs, Dell also refreshed its S-series displays. The new S-series monitors feature ultra-thin InfinityEdge bezels and speakers with enhancements by Waves MaxxAudio.

Dell’s new S-series family of displays consists of three base models: the S2319H+, the S2419H, and the S2719H featuring 23-inch, 24-inch, and 27-inch IPS panels, respectively. In addition, Dell’s new lineup includes the S2319NX, the S2419NX and the S2719NX SKUs with adjustable stands (supporting tilt adjustment). All models are based on panels with an FHD resolution, a 250-nits brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and a 60 Hz refresh rate. The monitors cover 99% of the sRGB color gamut, which is logical as they will be used primarily with Windows-based PCs. For connectivity, the displays use two HDMI connectors, whereas the S2319NX also has a D-Sub input.

The latest Dell S-series monitors come in stylish chassis with glossy backside. A slight disadvantage of the enclosures is that they do not feature VESA mounts, but since far not all offices use display stands with VESA mounts, this limitation is justified. The new S2319H+, the S2419H, and the S2719H LCDs are Dell’s first office monitors featuring ultra-thin InfinityEdge bezels.

The new monitors come with 5 W CinemaSound Waves speakers tuned by Waves MaxxAudio, like many other office LCDs. For customers who don’t need audio Dell offers HN-sufficed models without speakers.

    I must be missing something. Was the page on monitors taken from 2015?

    They're being marketed for the office use rather than gaming. They're being marketed as Dell's first office-focused monitors with InfinityEdge.

    Wouldn't Dell's first InifintyEdge monitors for office use be the Ultrasharp series from last year?

    Or even the refresh from this year? http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-ultrasharp-25-...

    Ultrasharp is a semi-premium brand. S is intended for more cost conscious business customers. OTOH last years S2318 looks like it's infinity edge in all but branding (and maybe 1mm in bezel size); and is in the same product family as these. I assume the same is true for other 2018 S series displays but didn't look any of them up.

    So I'm assuming the onlything new is that they're using the infinity edge branding more widely.

    The U2415 that I'm reading this on (yes, I'm at the office, but at least it's my lunch break :p ) sure looks InfinityEdgy enough for me. Pretty sweet monitor, truth be told, significantly better looking than my old beater U2711 at home. Still kind of miss the extra 240 vertical pixels, but the lack of bezels somehow makes the smaller panel size more palatable. Doesn't really make sense to me, but that's my experience anyhow.

    But yeah, this is definitely premium-ish. Non-premium monitors don't come with color calibration certificates in the box.

    What active pen technology is it on the XPS 15 2-in-1? Wacom AES? Microsoft's (N-trig)? Amtel? Synaptics? Come on Anandtech!

    Also, no normal USB ports, a microSD card reader (not full size), and only 100 nits?! Wtf Dell?!
  • Ian Cutress - Tuesday, April 3, 2018 - link

    Sorry, we're rushing to get things done here and some stuff sometimes gets missed. It's WACOM AES 2.0, and it should be 400 nits - that one was a typo.
  • satai - Tuesday, April 3, 2018 - link

    XPS 15 could be a nice device if an option of 6C but without NVidia existed :-/
  • HStewart - Thursday, April 5, 2018 - link

    That would be a good option for someone who can lived with integrated GPU performance but desires higher core count. Most business related applications don't need high end GPU.

    Any news of a Precision Mobile refresh with new processors?
