Dell S2716DG 1440 144 Hz G-Sync Owners Thread - Page 283

post #2821 of 5421
Just received my refurbished S2716DG from Dell @ $390 and it's an A03 with no dead pixels or backlight bleed. I'm in love.

Have anyone attempted to Overclock the S2716DG?
Any success?
post #2823 of 5421
I cant wait to get home,


It felt dirty having a nice monitor and still setting games to 1920x1080 because I was on a weak amd 380.

Nice card! Also on the R9 380 I would have dropped settings instead, it would have looked better because of how bad LCD is at displaying non-native resolutions.

I was concerned about this too but when I got this monitor and used it on 1080 when I first launched CS:GO before changing the settings I honestly couldn't see an issue. Everything was clear. For what it's worth this monitor seems to downscale to 1080 really well.

Yes. Everyone said the scaling would be off but I thought it looked great anyways.
Mostly was on Overwatch, so I already had it on low/medium to get 130-140Hz.
If I put it 1440p low I was getting i think 60-70.

Witcher3 I had a mix of low and med and it was getting 40-45fps @1440p. Some settings didnt impact it at all.
I got side tracked playing monster hunter on 3ds to give my back a break.
These aeron chairs at work are nice and I can sit for hours no problem.
I go back home to my "expensive" ikea and I get lower back pain after 2 hours.
Witcher3 was making it worse somehow. I think with using an x360 controller I was leaning back more or just not having my arms on desk and being in a diff position/weight distribution.

hello guy,
i would like to consult you all
i recently bought 3 s2716dg.
the first one i got was REV A03 and the other two i got were REV A02.
i don't see any differences between the two (A02 and A03), can you provide some information about the changes that were made?
also, there are numerous posts about problems with this unit. from you personal experience what are the general recommendations and insights? like disable the deep sleep... etc.
last questions, what are your color settings you are running? it will be nice to test other's settings... (mine are: bright - 26/ con - 75/ RGB 97/99/96)thumb.gif

thank you all and enjoy G-syncing:D

I actually like using ULMB on the desktop. Can scroll and read/look at pics at the same time.

I bought an Acer Predator XB271HU (the XB270HU was not available any longer) so that I could compare the two monitors side by side:
  • The Acer has a bezel-less design like the Dell, just the bottom plate is thicker. Some more stickers on the bottom plate but no problem, you can use tape to cover all of it.
  • Its deep sleep works, I had problem with the Dell there.
  • Its mounting (red devil horns turned towards the user) is not so decent than the Dell one.
  • ULMB strobe crosstalk is much more visible. On fast movements not just two but three trailing images can become visible if only for a short moment. The trailing image is visible a lot more often even when ULMB@120 Hz aligns with a rate of 120 frames per second.
  • ulmb on the desktop does result in similar strobe crosstalk effects like in games.
  • No difference in Diablo 3 on the Acer compared to the Dell, I start to suspect the reason could be related to how the game produces frames. But with the Acer I notice strobe crosstalk when you move the pointer in the game. It is actually visually different than the double image you usually have.
  • Like with the Dell, pixel overdrive is disabled in ULMB mode.
  • I cannot see any backlight bleeding (black image fullscreen, dark room) sitting in front of the monitor.
  • There is no vertical interlace effect on scroll movements in browsers of movements in first person games

Before I bought the Dell S2710DG (TN panel) I had a Dell U2410f (IPS panel) for three years and I notice the difference especially when you move around slightly (few centimeters) you can see the effects typical for a TN panel: Even a minor change in view angle is visible on the dell tn panel.

Since you cannot have both the quality of IPS panel and the fast reaction times of a TN panel without having the disadvantages of one or the other the only possible decision to take if you want to have both advantages is to keep both monitors and find a suiting mounting solution so that you can swap quickly anytime you want.

Personally I rather tend to the Dell for games since after such a long time with an IPS panel monitor I do not want to give up the good ULMB experience of the Dell S2710DG. You just have to maintain the refresh rate <-> fps synchronization (ergo for 1440p have a gtx 1080 or better and adequate graphic settings).

I could not find any panel problems with the Dell except two areas in the lower part of the screen which become visible as darkened or shadowed areas on brighter uniform backgrounds. No idea what it is exactly or how it is produced.

Eventually this is not the outcome I expected but that is what the current (and affordable) technology seems to be capable of.

EDIT: Just for information and to reduce confusion, there is also another model from Acer, the XB271HUA, which is different from the Acer XB271HU only for the fact that it has a TN panel instead of an IPS panel.

And that is why I have both an Acer XB270HU for 144hz gsync and a Benq XL2730Z for blur reduction 😄 my acer is one of the very first ones and is limited to 100hz in ULMB.

Thinking about purchasing one of these, Amazon has them new for $500. Over reading a few pages from this thread it seems like the newer model, REV A03, fixed some of the issues with the monitor. Is there any way to see which ones Amazon is selling?
