If you want good desktop usage you need ips. the color profiles also help this monitor quite a bit

I had opposite experience I returned 2 samsungs and kept 2 BenQ's but they were for an office environment not gaming. It looks like AOC is the only G-sync Glossy manufacturer right now that I found googleing anyway. I can say I'm a bit leery of AOC.

i was using glossy s27a950d for years, one of the best parts of this s2716dg is the fact thats its matte. huge plus. at night in totally dark room , glossy can give the illusion of better colors, but the reflective nature of the screen kills it for me.

I'm not sure if this will do it but I'm gonna try to explain what I'm talking about. I took a picture of my 9 year old HP (glossy) and this Dell monitor. I just have facebook up and I certainly didn't take this in any real scientific way. But despite the way the pictures look the Dell I have set to brighter despite looking dimmer. So what I am trying to get across is looking at my dirty HP that's been on the floor for a cpl months is that the grey/white in Firefox looks static as in the whole thing looks the same. The dell the white/grey to me looks blotchy like it doesn't transfuse through the AG properly and sorta seems like a patchwork of dark and light white/grey.




I used a MotoG to take these pictures and one was facing the window and one was in correct position on my desk (dell). So sorry if the pics are crap just the way it is for a quick comparison. No idea if you guys will be able to see it in these pics.

Very hard to see blotchyness transpire in those pics. The White balance does look wrong in the Dell but then it could just be the camera pics. I just downloaded Mozilla and I get a nice bright even grey across the home page. At the bottom where you can see bookmarks, downloads etc is in a darker grey

Don't think theres a great deal you can do about it

Well i have to edit my post since even with my old 17', Banding is still there, less maybe i had to set 100 brightness / 100 contrast and being close to my monitor. (1280x1024)
The issue could be steam's games and direct X.

I'm returning mine to Adorama and just ordered a new from Jet.com. It's going to be cheaper and dead pixel absolutely kills the resale value if I decide to sell it later on.

I only have a Dell U2711 27" 1440p monitor but looking at the pic it seems like your Dell is on a "warm" color preset. Is that the issue maybe as it looks like the white is kinda reddish?

Anyone actually serious about getting a properly calibrated display should get their own colorimeter, preferably a colormunki display or an i1 pro which will give you the same calibration results but it's speed is much faster in taking the actual measurements.

Using the color profiles from the reviews will surely improve your picture to some degree, but it's still going to be off since its not the same screen so you really need a custom profile tailored to your screen specifically.

That said, it's unfortunate how thick of an AG coating this monitor has, but that really doesn't bother me nearly as much as the overshoot this monitor has.



Credit to hardware canucks for the photo

As you can see the overshoot is abysmal for this screen, and theres no way around it because you can only set overdrive to normal or fast with fast producing even worse results. This amount of overshoot should not be present on a fast TN panel. Also giving you only two options for the response time is pathetic, with no option to even turn it off. If Dell can start shipping out a revision of this monitor with a firmware update to fix that problem i would have no issue keeping this display. The matte coating as bad as it is i could either live with, or just remove it like i did with my VG248QE.

I'm gonna reach out to dell and see if they're aware of this and plan to remedy the problem. The Acer XB270HU which is an IPS and has slower response times has a perfect OD implementation with only a bit of color streaking which i wouldn't ever notice in practice with how minimal it is.

Overdrive is pretty bad on many screens(a necessary evil to get these response times, but I would take a drop in response for no overdrive artifacts).

On the plus side, many users get used to the overdrive of the screen they use and are less bothered by it.
