You will benefit from the higher resolution, high refresh rate and G-Sync but don't expect much of an upgrade when it comes to colour.

nice to see Nvidia 3d support, as even Dell told me it didn't have 3d.

Does the 3d work with PS3 games or movies?

Are u sure?I bought my current monitor about 130 euros 4 years ago.I read that some tn panels are close to ips image.I hoped that this dell was a good tn panel.

Honestly, I've had so many high end monitors that I'd have a hard time remember all of them to list out and I've never seen any huge advantage to IPS colors. Call me a pleb but I like the over-saturated TN panels, I don't give a crap about color accuracy for gaming and web browsing, I care about response time and blur. The only monitors I've actively disliked the coloration of have been VA panels, every single one I've tried has had horrific banding and gamma shift. Never trying one of those again.

You might do as its 8 bit TN but it wont be WOW difference i don't think on colours.

60hz > 144hz is night and day difference. This is my first G-Sync monitor and i'm not sure i fully appriciate it as i don't think G-Sync has made a massive difference

I think the biggest difference is 60Hz -> 120Hz ULMB. Switching back to 60hz v-sync I was like "how was I ever able to play like that" ?

See this is sort of where my thinking is starting to line up. Like I said I have the XB271 predator, but I can't help but thinking that I would be just as happy with colors on a TN panel for significantly less money. Considering the acer was 875 and the dell would be like 650

I'm assuming that the pixel inversion is something that happens with all of these dell monitors right ? Doesn't matter manufacturing dates or anything ?

And would anyone have a recommendation on the best TN 1440p 144hz panel then? I've read that the Rog swift 278 also has the pixel inversion issue

To be honest. I upgraded from an old HP 60hz regular ass monitor to the acer and the colors on the acer didn't blow me away really. I didn't notice that they were so much better. What really got me was the 1440p resolution and the refresh rate / gsync

I'm not sure about the pixel inversion, I had the XL2730Z which should be the same panel and I never had any issues with it, it looked great. Freesync was just a crapshoot with different games and AMD drivers are for masochists so I got rid of it.

Pixel inversion is the most frequently used attribute to disqualify the Dell S2716DG here. Let me assure you : My Dell doesn't have this issue - it passes all the tests here:

The best gaming monitor I ever had, full stop!
