Dell ST2420L fails to crack top 5

The $240 Dell ST2420 isn't one of the top 5 Dell monitors. See which ones are.

When writing a review of a $240 monitor, it's important to keep that price in perspective at all times.

If it's missing essential features or has lackluster performance, you have to ask, "Is that a huge deal for such a low-priced, 24-inch monitor?" Other times, $240 just isn't low enough to excuse certain problems.

I recently posted a comparison of what I think are the very best monitors Dell has to offer. Dell makes really good monitors, but not all of them can be in the top 5 and some won't even come near it.

Check out the review of the Dell ST2420L to see if you can guess how close it comes to breaking through.

Also, run, don't walk, to our brand new monitor hub.
