DELL S2716DG 27

5 out of 5 eggs This is the monitor to have for 144 hz gaming 04/07/2016

This review is from: DELL S2716DG 27" Gaming Monitor with WQHD 2560 x 1440 Resolution 144Hz Refresh Rate and NVIDIA G-Sync 16:9 TN Panel

Pros: -Aesthetically, this monitor is gorgeous. The design is understated, and expensive-looking - there isn't any in your face "GAMING x1Z FatA|ity" branding or crazy colors that clash with my build.

-Viewing angles are a non issue - this monitor looks the same from any angle that I'd ever look at it from.
-No QC defects whatsoever

-Picture quality and colors are outstanding - they compete with IPS. I did need to reduce the gamma and tweak the color a bit though. Now the color is great!

-144hz, GSYNC and 1ms response time.

Cons: I have no cons with this monitor.

Other Thoughts: I've owned a Korean QNIX IPS monitor overclocked to 97hz for the last two years. Before buying this Dell, I purchased the Acer XB270 HU bprz from Newegg. The Acer monitor had massive QC issues with back light bleed, and it was more expensive. If I were to rate them, it would be: Dell > Qnix >> Acer. I will not accept panel defects on a $110 monitor, let alone a $500 one. Like I said earlier, the picture quality on this monitor rivals IPS. Don't think you need to settle for back-light bleed to enjoy 1440p 144hz gaming.

Acer XB270HU bprz 27'' 144Hz WQHD G-SYNC Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 350 cd/m2 1,000:1-Certified Refurbished
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I felt like I was getting a good deal on this monitor

Cons: Bad backlight bleed in top left corner. This defect is ridiculously easy to spot on any dark background, which doesn't inspire much confidence in the "refurbished" claim.
The bezel and base of my monitor were scratched.
The colors on my Korean Qnix IPS monitor look better

Other Thoughts: I, too, took a flier on this monitor, like many others. For the price and specs, I figured it was worth the gamble. I have Newegg Premier, so the risks were slim. I was disappointed with the quality of the monitor I received. Not only for the the panel defects, but also, the cosmetic ones. As I said in the cons, these defects are easy to spot. Refurbished, in my mind, implies the item should perform, and look as if the item were new. This was not my experience. I RMA'd this monitor, and requested a refund. I bought a Dell S2716DG and couldn't be happier.

EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 06G-P4-4992-KR 6GB SC GAMING, Whisper Silent Cooling Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I'm very satisfied with this card. Mine is overclocked to 1496 core, 3758 memory, +30mV, 125% power limit. I have 74% ASIC.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My card is watercooled - temps are 52 C at load.

I RMA'd the first card I had because of crashes to desktop while using Chrome. This has since been fixed with a driver update.
