The Good The Dell ST2310 is a good-looking 23-inch monitor with HDMI and DVI support at a low price.
The Bad The Dell ST2310's low brightness level keeps colors from really popping when watching movies and playing games. Also, the monitor lacks ergonomic options and extras.
The Bottom Line The ST2310 has a low price and is good for everyday tasks, but it lacks some of the extra features included with similarly priced displays.
The Dell ST2310 has a MSRP of $229, but can be found on Dell's site for $179, making it one of the cheapest 23-inch displays we've seen. The monitor has both DVI and HDMI connections. Unfortunately, its relatively low brightness level hurts its performance in movies and games and its lack of ergonomic options and extras such as USB ports and built-in speakers relegates it to the "good for everyday tasks" category. If you're looking for a low-priced 23-inch display with extras, check out the Asus V236H that includes both a headphone jack and built-in speakers for $189.
Design and features
The Dell ST2310 looks a lot like Dell's own SX2210, with a glossy black bezel juxtaposed with its stark white backside. The ST2310's bezel measures 0.9 inch on both sides and 1.25 inches on the bottom where a silver Dell logo resides. Its depth is 2.9 inches and the panel is 22 inches wide. The circular footstand is 8.8 inches in diameter and, as expected with such a narrow footstand, the display wobbles and slides considerably when knocked around, but surprisingly it never felt too unstable.
