Dell S2716DG 1440 144 Hz G-Sync Owners Thread - Page 209

post #2081 of 5318
I just spent 30 minutes testing with 3DVision (version 1) and yes, it works.

I feel like an idiot as I've had this monitor for 3 months and went along with the assumption that it wasn't compatible. I never thought to test it.

It sets up like any other 3D monitor. It's detected exactly as PCM2 states.

I tested Trine 2 and the Witcher 2. Both work fine, with the usual stereoscopic 3D caveats.

It's early days but from what I can see there's less crosstalk than my 23" 1080p LG 3D monitor. The stereoscopic experience is probably more immersive given that the Dell is a larger display and 1440p.

The big draw back is that pixel inversion is definitely noticeable in stereoscopic mode. I barely noticed it in normal use but as soon as I turned on stereo it was there. It's not a deal breaker for me.

Its a real pity that 3D is dead although the community have done a sterling job in fixing some games.

Stereoscopic 3D is a very, very nice bonus feature in this monitor and while it'll be meaningless to many, for those few who have the kit and are prepared to put up with 3D's foibles, it definitely adds value.

Well, you are using Nvidia 3d Vision 1, and it probably makes crosstalk worse, I don't know.
It would be nice to have a impresion about the quality playing 3d games using 1080p resolution, in comparison with another native 1080p 27" 3D monitor? I say it because playing 3D + 2K may be imposible with some games. I know 2K is better, but if you only can handle 1080p with certain game..., what can you expect?

About the death of 3D, I don't think it is going to happen so easy. Even if tomorrow Nvidia decided to cut support to 3D with their drives (that won't happen), I would have a 2nd computer at home just only to play past 3D games that there already exist with good support, and I have never installed because lack of time. With the past of time it become more intersting to play certain games in 3D, just because the game is the same but we have more powerfull hardware to play it in better conditions.

I'm not sure exactly what you are getting at here: I said crosstalk is less an issue on the Dell than my old LG panel. I don't think there's ever been concrete evidence that v2 offers less crosstalk than v1, it tends to be more of a panel issue rather than the glasses.

Stereo 3D is effectively dead and Nvidia effectively treats it as a legacy tech: there hasn't been any new 3Dvision profiles for quite some time and even tv manufacturers are starting to drop it from new sets. I don't think they'll abandon the driver any time soon but there's nothing new coming out, almost certainly, ever.

Yes, I wanted to find out if the problems are similar to the PG278Q. Many thanks for your answer. I will skip this monitor since I already have the Asus version.

Yeah both monitors use the same panel man just a different case design thumb.gif

I picked up the Dell for £440 whereas the ASUS is around £580. I won't rush out to buy another ASUS monitor after trying the PG279Q. It could have been a great monitor but QC seriously let it down.

On a slightly different note, i hooked up my PS4 to this monitor and although it worked, pixel inversion was pretty bad and the display felt sluggish. I took it back downstairs, connected it to my 40" Samsung Smart TV and it was really smooth and looked great.

Hey guys, new user here, been following this thread and decided to buy the monitor. I'm happy with it, but there is a but;

http://imgur.com/L5WxGFB this is how my monitor looks in complete darkness and black background. Is it bad and is it worth it to RMA - or will most monitors do this? It's not really noticable when colors are present and stuff is actually going on, but with complete black (or white) you can see this blob in the middle. I'm worried that in games like Thief or other darker games like that, it WILL be noticable... I did pay about €600 for it, so I want a GOOD 100% working monitor!

Yeah, that's not normal, mine doesn't have this. I would RMA and swap for another. Looks like some kind of 'pressure' damage.

Thanks, will do.

Edit: Hopefully they will feel the same way. If they don't think there is anything wrong, I will be charged for "RMA without reason", which is atleast €50 and probably more...

Edit2- Followup: Talked briefly with Dell support, he asked what's wrong, I said it would be easier just to send him a picture, he said cool, told me where to send it. After less than 2 hours, he has ordered a new monitor for me. Can't complain about that service...! Hopefully next one will be good! thumb.gif

I just ordered one of these, it was on sale on Amazon for $575 free shipping and no tax. Hopefully my panel lottery ticket pays off after the last dozen monitors I've bought having stupid issues.
