Damn man, sorry to hear all that. The one "perk" of TN was supposed to be the better QC, at least from Dell and what not.
Nothing fancy

Did you ever try Acer/asus IPS Monitors and if yea, how do they fare vs Dell TN when its calibrated?
post #2734 of 5429
No. But, I do own Dell U2412M and U2415 both IPS monitors. The TN holds its own against them with all 3 properly calibrated.

Been rocking my 3x U2412ms for several years now and keep trying to break into the 1440p/144hz experience. I got a PG279q for a bit and wasn't happy. I'm thinking I might go pick up one of these at a local store and try it out before deal hunting online. The fact that you mention this holds its own against a U2412M despite being TN gives me hope. thumb.gif

I am really REALLY going to caution you on the statement I made. If you don't have a tool to properly calibrate and coming from a U2412M. Don't get this monitor. I can tell you now. I want to use caution and not send the wrong message. Its completely subjective what I deem acceptable and others unacceptable. If you do color coded work etc. Don't get this monitor. But, for gaming and browsing the net etc properly calibrated. I say give it a go. And if you are even thinking about going with 3 to replace those U2412M's. RUN! The viewing angles wont work for you.

Thanks--mostly just going to try it out to see what TN looks like to me after IPS for so long.

All I really want is a 1440p center panel and my two U2412Ms on the sides. I only use the side panels for youtube/twitch/messaging. I don't game in surround ever, only with my primary center panel. However, I had issues running the PG279Q at 144hz with my U2412Ms at 60hz (huge input lag/stuttering on the 60hz panels), so I sold my shiny new GTX 1080 and went back to my 780ti and 3x u2412ms. We will see how the s2716dg behaves.

Gonna try the 120hz primary/60hz secondary thing to see if it's smoother, but really it seems like I'll need to do a full swap to all 144hz panels. Might try something like 2x S2716dgs instead of 3x u2412ms.

You are aware of the 24" version right? http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=210-AIZS Just wanted to put that out there in case you wanted to stay with 24" instead of going 27". Also. The 24" version does 165Hz as the 27" only does 144Hz. If that matters to you. Like I mentioned earlier. I don't want you to go into shock and awe at the color difference between this one and the U2412M. Its going to be dramatic compared to the IPS. The colors will seem really washed out. Until you actually calibrate it if you have a tool available.

BUT. The good news is. Dell has improved the colors out of the box with the A03 June 2016 builds on up.

I have a bug with my Dell S2716DG :-(
The power consumption in standby-mode is too high: 20 Watt in standby and 6 Watt if i turn the monitor manually off.
I have a "A03" revision (Build Mai 2016) monitor.

Can someone check and post the power consumption of a A03 revision monitor please?
