Lol at the marketing chick hired by Dell:





She keeps calling it "Dell 27" etc. lmao, clearly she has little clue about electronic products..

Can an owner actually post some photos of this monitor in use? I cant find anything on the internet, only product photos. I know the first few posts have some pics but would be great to see more.

I am fairly likely to pull the trigger on one of these today for delivery tomorrow so if someone can't post pics today, i will as i know a lot of you are interested in how this is vs Acer and ASUS's horrible panels.

Nice @ Daryl, you dont even know how much appreciated that would be. Honestly, I woulda tested it already, its just not available yet here in central eu. Ive preordered it a while ago too.

I really hope youll receive a great issue-free device and the rest of us few weeks later. :d

GL & HF with it!

I setup the monitor last night. This is a keeper for me no doubt about it. My main gripe was the horrible distracting glow on the XB270HU. This monitor has zero glow and no bleed at all. Perfect black screen. I play in the dark all the time and this was very important to me.



As you can see, it is pretty much perfect in that regard. Nothing distracted me at all while gaming in the dark with it. EDIT: Honestly, taking another look at that image...don't use it as an example of what you see. The camera really exaggerates. The screen is uniform black.

Yes, there is the classic TN color shift (white to very very faint yellow) somewhat on the sides and a bit of gamma shift if you look from the bottom. I had to adjust the height a bit so that the top of the screen didn't look darker than the rest. I haven't touched any of the color setting yet. I just lowered the brightness down to around 30.




Now, here is one thing that I will mention as a huge plus: the power LED! The Acer had a hugely distracting bright blue LED that shined directly in your eye. It even left patterns of blue light on the walls in my room. I must say that the LED on this monitor is a dim, unobtrusive white. Very welcomed compared to that "laser" on the Acer.



Yes, I can definitely tell the colors are much more muted compared to the IPS on the Acer. That is to be expected and might be the only thing I might miss. I will gladly trade IPS for a uniform black screen any day.

There is a coating on this screen that does give things on the display a sort of "shimmer" if you will. You really have to focus in order to see it though. Oh, and one last thing, no glossy bezels. There is no little line of reflection coming from inside the bezels like on the Acer. In fact, the way they built this monitor, the clear material covering the panel goes all the way from edge to edge for a very clean look.

Can't wait to game on this some more this weekend!

Congrats! Good you are satisfied with it. I had PG278Q exactly like this. No bleed, no glow, no dead pixels, no dust, only uniformity issues - color and gama shift. Exactly like yours. Did you check for pixel inversion already?

But, the last screen you posted is pretty bad imo when it comes to uniformity. The OSD is yellowish at the right side pretty much while left part is gray. Also the moon, the left part is obviously yellow. I couldn't stand this to be honest, that's why I've returned it... Really don't know what is worse, glow or this...

Nice review, thanks. My second PG279Q replacement is coming next week (both previous had huge bleeding...) and if that one also fails I am going for this Dell so if you could post any pictures of some color-rich games on it, that be great!

At least black is black (well, as for TN) with no glow which is already HUGEEEE Yay! to me.

Any news on TFT review on it?

It's same panel as PG278Q, there is no doubt about it. Don't know why you guys going so excited about this Dell. Rog Swift is here for 1,5 years already and it is same like this... Except HDMI...

If you still have your replacement PG then side by side color comparsion would be nice- pictures or just your impressions and how do you feel it. Best are some color-rich games, as I already see that dark games will look better on Dell.

I would be most interested in your opinion when you play one game on IPS and second on new Dell- do you feel color difference in games and how much you miss IPS in games compare to this Dell TN.

And- honestly anything will help, whatever you will write in review mate smile.gif I wish you luck with lottery (although it seems it is muuuuuch smaller lottery than PG....).
