Dell Monitors and the Yellow Club



  • I was given 2 Dell E2416HX monitors. 1 was yellow. They didn't have VESA (highest on the priority list of features), so I gave those to a new employee. I found a (new in box) 2 year old E2414H monitor. We have a dozen of them in the building and they are great for basic monitors. This one is also yellow (a urine hue if you will). These were both used on different display & power cables. I saw on a Dell forum that there is a "yellow club". Anyone else have yellow issues with Dell monitors? I find Dell monitors to usually be pretty good.



  • Is the picture yellow or the outer casing?

    I've not gotten any pee monitors from Dell.

    Haha the picture, not the case.



  • Checked the cables/etc. Works fine with older monitors. I went back to some older E2311H ones that work better. Just a bit smaller by about 2 inches.

    Nope. But we don't use E series. They don't come with height adjustable stands. We mostly use ultra Sharp series.

    Price for us was only within E series. 😞

    On another note, I just salved the adjustable stands from the older E series. 🙂

    Ultrasharp's are mighty nice. What model do you have?

    What is it about having to pay $200+ (and realistically more like $300+) for a monitor to have height adjustability?

    Having a more sharp/clear monitor and to where users can adjust it causes less fatigue and makes employees more productive so they are well worth the extra money. They can easily pay for themselves in one day.

    Which is why we bought the E-series and harvested the adjustable stands of the E2310H/E2311H models. I think the Dell monitors have that proprietary stand connector, not something universal like VESA but I'd have to check.

    Well, that's not nice. I really, really like the $70 VESA swing arm mount I have at home.
