Dell 27 Gaming Monitor S2719DGF - £359.99 delivered @ Dell

27
Found 20th Jan
With nVidia opening up their 10 and 20 series cards to Freesync, I was looking for a cheap 1440p 144hz 27" panel.

This is direct from Dell and brand new (as opposed to NRG:IT which is cheaper but are refurbs)

Yes it's a TN panel, but it's a cracking TN panel and the build quality is second to none.

Dell will replace it even if it develops just one dead pixel.

I plan on pairing this with a 1080ti for some lovely 144hz 2k gaming.

£349 at NRG with 3yr warranty. These should be new units, the refurb listings normally states refurb in my experience with NRG.

NRG warranty is awesome too :).
This is suppose to be good with gaming consoles as well. Can anyone who has one comment on this.

You may be right.

So this is going to annoy some but I feel people need to understand something about the new 'G-Sync Compatible' class that Nvidia has set-up for Free Sync screen.

These are not the same as G-Sync screens, so far Nvidia has tested and confirmed a hand full of Free Sync screens as meeting acceptable compatibility with the technology. So what does this mean I hear you say...

This can mean that screens artefact, blink, colour corrupt or out and out not sync frame rates. Unless you have seen a Review of this model from a reputable reviewer reviewing G-Sync compatibility or Nvidia validate it I would consider this crap shoot on weather it will be good or not.

I feel this is a warning that most wont heed but I say it anyway in hope.

If you look on Reddit, theres a crowd sourced list of tested monitors, and this one (so far) appears to work absolutely fine.

Of course YMMV.

The issues you mentioned can happen even with an AMD GPU, especially flickering.

At what stage do you put in your email address to get the discount?

I'm pretty sure my work have a Dell account, I wasn't aware of this!
i think if your are gana spend more than £300 on a monitor you should just save money and go for a proper monitor the ips 4k etc etc etc
or just go for a 27-32 inch ips 1440 for under £200

From what I understand you wouldn't want IPS for gaming.

Could you please tell from where you can get 27-32 inch QHD IPS with atleast 144hz refresh rate for under £200. Guess it's very easy to simply make blind suggestions.

Great find OP, only small concern is the TN part. Would have been a total super deal if it was VA panel. But this monitor has some very good reviews. Heated tho.

Kind of a big difference between £360 and the price of a 4k ips 144Hz monitor. Not to mention the increased graphics needed to power the high resolution which either adds even more cost or sacrifices graphical performance ironically enough. While I'm not sure whether I'd go for this myself, this isn't really for those wanting 4k or 60fps.

I'm not really convinced the difference in response time being much of a factor anymore tbh. Response times are a lot better than earlier IPS panels. Of course there's pros and cons to each panel, TN is cheap and responsive but poor viewing angles, IPS generally has better colours and viewing angles, but blacks aren't as dark and you have issues such as ips glow. You also have OLED monitors actually coming which will likely be super expensive, but of course the technology does suffer from burn in.

OLED monitors give me the heebie jeebies
So for gaming is va better than ips? So confusing
Personally I would go with the Acer VG270UP for £20 extra. Similar spec but it's IPS

That's another good choice which seems to work with nVidia cards - good find squire.

I would add though that Dell build quality far exceeds Acer's. And in this instance I'd sacrifice the IPS panel for a better looking, sturdier and better built Dell unit.

That's just me personally of course.
I got the 24" version of this monitor the other week, I'm still trying to get it calibrated right. I came from an IPS monitor which had richer colours and deeper blacks and smoother gradients. This pixelation I'm getting can be seen in movies or even youtube videos in dark scenes, it's really annoying but I've managed to minimize the effect by using an ICC profile and deleting Dell's one (Washed out look).

I'm on the fence if I should return/sell it for an IPS one now. I love the g-sync feature though and 144Hz is nice (Can overclock to 165Hz).

I bought s2416dg two weeks ago. Which is very similar to model above I guess. Dark scenes are just terrible. I think I'll return it and buy 4k monitor

It's not. People forget that pixel response time is not the only thing that determines the lag of a monitor, you also have the input lag of the panel itself. I upgraded from the pg278q to pg279q and according the to tftcentral the overall lag of both panels is the same despite the latter being IPS.
I currently have an old Dell UltraSharp U2312HM 23" Monitor with LED which runs at 60Hz.

It's an IPS 1920x1080 (max) resolution, really well built and not a bad looking but has a 8ms response time. I'm looking for a 27inch upgrade with 144Hz and preferably 2560 x 1440 resolution and a max response of 4ms.

I'm looking for an upgrade for PubG and Battlefield gaming but not sure if it's really worth it as I only have a MSI GeForce GTX 1070 GAMING-8G Graphics Card.

Any assistance or suggestions would be appreciated.
