The birth of Windows 8 OS, according to Microsoft, is designed to support components with touchscreen feature. This is the reason why PC users who are still using non touchscreen monitor can't optimize the experience of using Windows 8 OS.

In fact, it's not easy to get the right touchscreen monitor, especially if you want to use it for multi-purpose. 

Dell, one of the largest computer manufacturer, finally offers their new 21,5 inch touchscreen led monitor with 10-point touch capability, Dell S2240T. Well you can enable the touchscreen capabilities by connecting the USB cable from your computer to the monitor's USB port and connect either HDMI, DVI or VGA cable to the monitor.

* Good quality display

This Dell monitor is capable of providing good quality display for desktops use, playing a game, or when used for watching movies.

Unfortunately, you can only experience the best quality of this monitor when you watch it directly in front of you.

When the position of the monitor is above or below the eyes level, we noticed a little bit distortion of the colors. A similar thing happens when we try to look from the side. In general, the viewing angle of 178 ° vertical and horizontal claimed by Dell is true, it's just, there is a little color distortion when you look in the direction of the monitor from the angle above 30 °, both vertically and horizontally.

One of the best thing about Dell S2240T is its power consumption is really low. You can even push its energy use by activating the Energy Smart mode features.

* Elegant design with double stands

This monitor takes up more space on the desk compared to standard monitor. That's because Dell S2240T uses double stands. Perhaps, the reason behind the use of double stands is, Dell wants this monitor to be used with various tilt angles to support its touchscreen function.

The Verdict:
Dell S2240T might not be the best monitor to display First person shooter or racing games, fortunately, this S2240T has a lot of features that makes it superior than most touchscreen monitor on the same class.
