Hi everyone, I need the exact dimensions of the DELL S2340L (2013 S Series) 23" monitor screen *INCLUDING THE BEZEL* and not including the monitor stand.
Very specifically, I need to know the height and width of the screen including the plastic around it. I primarily need to know the height and width, though if you could provide the depth (along the edges) that would be great too.
I am seeking to fit the monitor perfectly into a cabinet. I thought the 21.5" was the right size but it's an inch too short. Before I go through the process of exchanging the monitor I need to know if the 23" is too tall or not. The Dell website only gives the dimensions including the stand or of the screen but not the bezel. I tried chatting with Dell support and the guy was like, "well I can see the monitor in front of me has about a 1 inch bezel." ...
Edit: More information:
I can't seem to trust any online source:
I purchased the 21.5" monitor and measured it:
Actual height dimension: 11 + just under 5/8ths of an inch.
Dell.com: 11.85" (just under 11 + 7/8th of an inch.)
NewEgg: 11.72" (Which is essentially what I actually measured)
23" version according to sources:
Actual height dimension: ??? (Help!)
Dell.com: 11.28" (smaller than the 21.5"? wtf?!)
NewEgg: 11.72" (same as the 21.5"?! wtf?!)
Edit2: The answer: Actual according to an owner: 2013 S-Series: S2340L 23" (31.5 cm by 53.1cm, complete edge to edge, including bezel)
Actual according to an owner: 2013 S-Series: S2440L 24" (33.49 cm x 56.74 cm, complete edge to edge, including bezel)
OK, I did some A^2 + B^2 = C^2 math, and...
The 21.5" screen is only 10.54" tall. With the bezel it's as I measured, about 11.72" tall. Meaning the bezel adds about 1.18".
Presumably the 23" screen is 11.27" tall. If the bezel is the same, with the bezel it's 12.45" tall.
I'm guessing I need to exchange it because the perfect fit for this cabinet is 12.5-13" tall with bezel. I'm still hoping someone with the monitor can just measure it and report back though! I'd rather the monitor an inch short than one millimeter too big.
