Dell U2518D Ultrasharp HDR Quad HD InfinityEdge 25 Inch Monitor
This is the latest revision of Dell’s 25 inch ultrasharp range the U2518D. This model is designed to support HDR and has a slightly different port configuration compared to the hugely successful U2515H.
It still maintains a number of standards set by the older 2015 model. It still boasts a quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 with a 60Hz refresh rate, and it also remains as flexible as its predecessor, with the ability to twist, pivot, tilt and is fully height adjustable.
Dell U2518D Monitors Feature An Updated Design
Dell has remained consistent with the look and feel of this ultrasharp model. It has an ultrathin InfinityEdge bezel and very slim profile. The bezels are a two part affair with a very thin hard plastic outer component and the slightly thicker on screen component. Together they measure 8mm at the top and sides, and the bottom measures 15mm thick.
The casing is comprised of a gun metal grey and matte black combination. The same combination is found on the stand and base. On the stand you will find the cable tidy hole to pass cables through from the connection panel.
Dell U2518D Monitors are Fully Flexible
As touched upon above, this U2518D can be manoeuvred in a number of ways. It can twist left and right and it can be tilted forwards and backwards. It can also be pivoted through 90° in to portrait mode with ease. The height can be adjusted to suit the user’s needs with a range of 130mm (5.12 inches).
Dell U2518D Features Updated Connectivity Options
This monitor still retains the HDMI, DisplayPort and Mini DisplayPort options but does not feature the MHL option that came with the U2515H model.
Dell U2518D HDR Support
This monitor is a true 8-bit colour panel with a brightness of 350 cd/m2 but doesn’t have the thousand plus multiple dimming zones or bit depth required to fully support true HDR.
