    As widescreen monitors have become the norm, traditional-aspect-ratio computer monitors have become harder to find. But while widescreen works well for gaming and video content, there remain some key use cases for a taller ratio.

    I’ve seen many reviewers/commenters miss this point, but a 1280×1024 monitor like the Dell P1917S isn’t even the classic 4:3 ratio that dominated desktop computing since at least the VGA era. It’s actually 5:4, making it taller and more squarish still, and thus well-suited to web browsing or basic productivity tasks like word processing where you’re mainly scrolling vertically.

    It also works well as a second monitor (or pair of secondary monitors) flanking a large widescreen primary display. Its relatively narrow footprint means you won’t feel like you’re excessively whipping your head left and right just to take in all your screen real estate.

    Spreading 1280×1024 across a 19″ display results in one of the highest dot pitches (largest pixel sizes) of any widely used screen form factor, another way this monitor goes against the norm, with ever-higher pixel density being the trend. This is subjective, since many people seem to prefer super-tiny pixels (consider the Samsung Galaxy S20 crams 1440×3200 into a screen 1/3 this size), but I find a high dot pitch to be easier on the eyes. So to me, this is ideal.

    I’ve devoted all of this review so far to discussing the monitor’s specs rather than the monitor itself. That was necessitated by it being an increasingly rare and hard-to-find form factor, so one must first make the case for why it’s desirable in the first place. As for this one in particular, it is one of the latest–if not the latest–in a long series of 19″ 1280×1024 Dell monitors. I’ve used a number of them over the years, and to my eye, this has the best picture quality of any so far. Compared to previous ones I’ve used, it also adds HDMI input (at the expense of DVI, which could be inconvenient for some setups) and a USB 3.0 hub.

    I’m not looking at this through the lens of graphic design or gaming, so there may be some prospective buyers with more stringent standards for color reproduction, response time, etc., that aren’t even on my radar. But I doubt they would be buying a 19″ 1280×1024 monitor in the first place. As for me, I have no significant complaints. So far, this one has performed exactly as I had hoped.

    Bought this for an arcade system based on the Raspberry Pi and it works great. Since some games are vertically oriented and some are horizontal, a square-ish shaped monitor (5:4 aspect ratio) was ideal (a vertical shooter for example would not look great on a widescreen monitor). This fit the the bill nicely.

    Was a good value since it was bought used. There is a line of red discoloration when displaying black colors.

    I am in a business setting and prefer to have several programs open in their own windows simultaneously. These monitors are just the right size for a multiple monitor setup. They are easy to set up and come with various cables to accommodate a number of video cards. These are not as good for video work and wide spreadsheets. I have a different monitor for that usage. The stands are easily adjusted to meet my height requirement without stacking books under the base.

    Almost every website is designed to be 1000 pixels wide. This monitor is perfect for web work and documents. The larger 16:9 monitors work well for graphics and spreadsheets. I use both side by side. See photo.

    Dell monitors are well designed and built. Plus the stands rise, tilt and swivel. In my opinion this utility is worth a few extra bucks.

    Bought 2 of these to have portrait monitors for my home and 2nd home office – I work with 2 monitors and like the one on the left to be portrati – I cannot seem to get the resolution to match the horizontal monitor – I was able to on the older Dell but not this one – it does not handle the white monitor plug so if you have an older cpu you will need to use the hdmi – not supplied – or an adapter – not supplied – these monitors rotate and have height adjustment –

    This monitor has a large display and clear picture. I also love being able to raise and lower it. I wish it were a little easier to plug the cables into the monitor.

    My new monitor just arrived. The monitor was packed well. As I write this, the screen is filled with Amazon’s white page, and I can’t see any scratches or variations in brightness or other defects. Text is crisp, which is what I need, since I write software and legal briefs, and am 65 years old, so my eyes need all of the help they can get. I especially like that I can easily rotate the display, which I do when reading briefs or using Libre Office or my programmer’s editor. I purchased two off brand monitors locally as I was in a hurry, but they sucked totally, so on my third attempt I ordered this Dell. I won’t be buying any off brand monitors ever again. My eyes and my time are both too valuable.
