From all the research I have come up with, preferred dpi is 400 and 800. 1800 is highest acceptable.
Native is preferred. I use a Razer Naga and it defaults to 1800 but I cant find any solid info on its native setting.

I've been a 24" 1080p user forever. Perhaps it's a matter of time to acclimate.

Same here. I have been on a 24 inch @1920x1200 for a long time. This 3 inches makes a big difference. It will take time to get use to it. I am using 1600 dpi with my mouse currently.

I know this is going to sound strange but I'm going to have to return this monitor tomorrow. I sunk several hours today playing some games online and it was borderline nauseating.

I don't think there's anything wrong with the screen, I'm pretty sure it's just me. I have comfortably been acclimated to 1080p at high refresh rates for many years.

1440p just has me moving around way too much to get my bearings on what's happening in the game environment.

Is it 1440p or is it a bigger monitor than you are used to? 27 inches feels good gaming but bothers me when web browsing.

You can get the little brother version. http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=210-AIZS

Same resolution at 24 inches. It also advertises and does 165Hz OC. I think this one would fit you much better in your case.

Oddly I think it's a combination of the two. Having more screen real-estate for my eyes to track and more on the screen with the pixel increase.

If I sit further away from the screen to compensate, it feels odd and unnatural.

It really is odd and if I was reading this from another users post I'd think they're out of their mind lol.

How long have you had it for? Give it some weeks, you have 30 days to return right? I know what you're getting at, when i tried 1440p 27" from 24" 1080p i too felt like it was a bit large and harder to track targets and play competitively. Once you get used to it though it becomes quite nice actually. One can still argue that 24" is a better size for competitiveness, but its also related to how close you like to sit to the monitor. I'm back on 24" 1080p right now after hopping between several 27" 1440p 144hz monitors and not being satisfied with the QC on any of them. I also used a friends 32" 4k monitor for a few days, and that had me convinced i wanted to go bigger always.

Immersion was greatly increased on the 32", i really want a 4k 40" 120/144hz monitor. None exist yet but i have a feeling next year we'll see them. Till then i'm itching to upgrade to a 27" 1440p 144hz display and the Pixio for less than $400 sounds like a pretty damn good deal, most users have been happy with theirs. I'm sure i'll be able to sell this gsync monitor for a good amount too as i modded it a bit to vastly improve its overall quality. Basically plasti-dipped all the glossy bezles to matte black for better perceived blacks, removed the awfully grainy matte coating for a nice clear glossy display, and calibrated it as perfectly as possible with a colorimeter.

Theres no reason for me to want to ditch it other than wanting to have that larger display again. tongue.gif

I thought the same, but after 2 days it felt normal. If anything its the higher res on the desktop and browsing that throws me off.
And I went from old budget $150 TN 1080p 24" 60Hz to this.

Got mine a few days ago (April 2016 A03) after having the Acer xb271hu which i returned because of bad blb. This has no dead pixels and after adding the tftcentral icc profile it looks very good. but i have this weird "saw edge pattern" on the bottom goes the whole length. I have bad camera so it doesn't show up so clearly.



Anyone else having this?

I don't know if Dell has tried to fix the gamma or using some kind of newer revised panel. Maybe a combination of both. But, I can tell you 100% the colors was no where near as bad as my previous 2 A03 May 2016 builds. They have done something with the June 2016 builds for the better. Being able to compare before and after calibration using Colormunki Display. The differences was no where near of the 2 A03 May 2016 builds. Still a difference for sure. But, imo. Acceptable for people that don't have a calibration tool. That is saying a whole hell of a lot knowing how horrific the gamma is out of the box.

After going through all the hell. This one looks to finally be a keeper. It only took 3 tries. rolleyes.gif
