Vs P2416D??


what?

Vs P2416D??



This one is a better monitor.

The one I mentioned is not for gamers! What about vs U2515H?

£350 at Amazon.. what a bargain this is.

Anyone know the website? Reputable?

Thanks

Great price. If I didn't already have a 27" QHD I'd have been all over this.

I've used them before, no problems

Anyone know the website? Reputable?



Ballicom are one of the very best (and cheapest) I.T sites around. I buy stuff like this from them and it comes really fast, often next day even when selecting free delivery. Last week I ordered a case and power supply 2pm Wednesday, arrived 9am the next day.

What about google?

Can this be wall hung? as it doesn't day in the description...

Ive used them loads, I used to work about 50 yards from the front of there shop. Never had any issues,

The one I mentioned is not for gamers! What about vs U2515H?


Good question, they both seem the same but this is priced higher RRP. I would trust in dell and assume this is more defined.
I have the U2515H myself and it's great - but it has a semi gloss screen which wasn't specified. I prefer matte.

Yes it's on Dell's minisite:
accessories.ap.dell.com/sna…t=1
"Flat Panel Mount Interface: VESA (100 mm)"

Looks good for the money, I got the U2515H this time last year and have been really happy with it. The resolution is a great fit for the panel size

I'm curious about this as well. There's hardly any reviews of this monitor and I'm a bit concerned about the blur and pixel response+signal processing lag.

I’m using the same monitor as I type this and I’m very pleased with it. It’s a crisp nice looking screen with excellent viewing angles. and if you’re a digital artiest like me It’s great. I’ve been considering getting another 2 to replace my old 1080p monitors that sit either side of this monitor and at this price I might just go for it. Nice spot op

It might be too week.

Not bad at all but a bit small for a 2560*1440 screen imho. 1440/1600p screens started out at 30", which I think is about the ideal size for that res without scaling.

Scaling is always an option but then you lose screen space and hence some of the point of that higher res. I've used 1440p on a 28" screen and without scaling that is about the useable limit....

This is more than a 100% sRGB monitor, at it is a wide gamut model (able to cover close to 100% of the aRGB and DCI-P3 gamuts), with hardware calibration and uniformity correction, PIP and more.

I purchased its bigger brother (UP2716D), which has the same characteristics but is 2" larger, but ended up returning it as quality was poor (edge bleeding, non uniform colour, etc.).

If you plan on buying this, do check Ballicom's return policy as this can be a very serious issue even if the price is great

"2K" grrrr!

1440p is not 2k, 1080p is. Good deal though.

I find 25" 1440p very usable without scaling - very happy with my U2515H.

Struggling to fight the urge here. Sold my GTX 970 earlier and now have £200 burning a hole in my pocket... -.-

Ditto. It's the ideal size to resolution ratio for me.

If you have a 10% voucher from ebay it works out slightly cheaper buying from CCL

Would a HD4600 be able to handle this resolution over HDMI?

Would a HD4600 be able to handle this resolution over HDMI?


The HD4600 definitely can, but whether it will work for you depends on your motherboard too as not all of them will support HDMI output at 1440x2560@50-60Hz

1440p is not 2k, 1080p is. Good deal though.



1440p is 2k (2560*1440).

You shouldn't really offer advice unless you know what you're talking about.

Actually by definition 1440p is 2.56k
2K was a video/cinema standard for approx 2000 pixels wide

2k is 2048x1080, a cinema and broadcast standard. For consumer equipment the 2048 is downgraded somewhat to 1920 but the vertical resolution remains the same, 1080.

For 4K, the resolution at a cinema is 4096x2160, again downgraded for the consumer market to 3840x2160.

The clue is in the first number, for both 2k and 4K the number approximates the horizontal resolution. (2k = 2000, 4K = 4000). You can probably guess what 8k equates to :-)

But hey, I don't know what I'm talking about

My mistake then, sorry. You learn something new every day.

what's the response and input lag like for gamers?
