Dell Introduces Three New UltraSharp Monitors

Dell has once again expanded its popular UltraSharp line of monitors, this time with three models that are aimed towards office use due to their video conference capabilities. Named UZ2215H, UZ2315H and UZ2715H, the new 21.5-inch, 23-inch and 27-inch monitors respectively feature a built-in 2 megapixel camera, dual (Omni-directional) microphones and two built-in 5 W speakers.

Dell's displays use IPS panels and have a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, an 8 ms GTG response time, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, a two-port USB 3.0 hub, and D-Sub, dual HDMI and DisplayPort 1.2a outputs. The UZ2315H and UZ2715H are selling in the US for $299.99 and $449.99 while the UZ2215H can be found in Hong Kong at HK$2,399 (~ 309 USD ).

Seems like the bezel is as thick as it needs to be to fit all those "office" features.

Why the hell. U2414H was beautiful, these ones are awful.

That 1080p on the 27" is perfect for the business user who always has that one program open.

Fortunately we live in a world where technology is advanced enough to fit all those "features" inside a phone smaller than the palm of your hand and no more than a few millimeters thick. Unfortunately, you might be right on this one.

The idea of this monitor is a web-cam and speakers 5W. So yes, there is a problem of putting thick things in thin spaces. But for a small business (even medium sized) that has a lot of web collaboration and presentation I think it is a mistake to think that this is a problem.


I have to call colleagues and so many times the web-cam is just not around. A voice call at times just does not cut it. And presentations (in form of sketches and other creativity) are so easy to put thru.


Yes, it is a choice thing, but then at times the brick is a requirement to make a building stand firmer.

What's up with the price? It's like the same hardware as the S2340Ms minus the DisplayPort. So unless it supports deep color or something, I'm unimpressed. I wouldn't pay an extra 150 USD just for a Mic array, a web cam, and some cheap speakers. If you're in an office with other people, you'll probably be wanting a headset anyways.

Video chat is a terrible medium for showing a presentation. Clearly you've never used Adobe Connect. Granted it's a paid product, but as a business if you do things like this a lot, it's worth it. I use it at work as well and it solves most of the shortcomings you described.

Heh, the expensive monitors with tracking cameras (they can fixate on a presenter) go largely unused here. Last time was when an employee that had been with the company for a long time was having a birthday so we linked conference rooms in three states for a little party.

Our day to day software is Lync which supports a decent number of people connected at once. It'll use a webcam if there's something physical to show, but 99% of the time it's all about the screen sharing.
