Dell S2716DG 1440 144 Hz G-Sync Owners Thread - Page 385

Micro Center has a retail boxed S2417DG for $379.99. retail boxed sealed. 165Hz.

Best Buy has a Dell S2716DG 144Hz for $479.99.

I'm having a hard time choosing.

I'm finally able to buy a good monitor for my GTX 1080.

It seems the 24" has a higher PPI of 140 something, and a close gamma to 2.2 while it has a lower contrast. But is a 165Hz panel.

The 27" is larger, 144Hz, much higher true contrast, gamma curve is not quite as close.

There both beautiful. And priced way out of the market than any other competitors.

$699 for the Asus pg278QR TN is out of my budget for a TN.

If I were spending $699 I'd buy the ViewSonic XG2703 Gsync 165Hz with a AH/VA IPS panel.

What should I do? I'm going to buy either Dell Monday, or Tuesday.

The size difference isn't enormous IMO, but if you're close on deciding, go with the bigger option. Another thing to consider if you have a Costco near you, they have the Xb271hu on sale for $599.99. After owning the s271dg and not being able to get over the banding and color (TN), I went out and got the Acer and am very happy at that price. I still think both Dell models are great values if you're going to be using them for purely twitch gaming like overwatch or cs. But if you're used to IPS panels you might have difficulty getting over the viewing angle color shifts and banding issues.

It takes me an hour to fall asleep unless I use f.lux which lowers the blue light spectrum. If I apply a color profile from TFT Central, my f.lux does not seem to want to work with it. If I apply the TFT Central profile, the f.lux "filtering" goes away. If I click f.lux in my taskbar, the TFT Central colors go away. ( I actually run f.lux 24/7 so blue light is always filtered. It helps my eyes SO much.)
How can I get a decent color profile but still be able to filter out blue light somehow? I know TFT had a low blue light profile for the S2417DG but I don't see one for the S2716DG.

I don't understand. In the color-preset modes-custom color menu you can mix the RGB all you like, so why don't you use it?

You can try lowering color temperature through Dell Display Manager, which has a similar effect to f.lux and should work with ICC profiles..

Hello together,

after I showed my banding-problems a few pages ago, I just received my new S2716DG -> same problem.
And now I dont wanna hear stuff like "thats normal for a TN-Panel", because this isnt right.

I compared my screen with a few others here in the forum and in other forums. We compared the same pictures at the same settings.
After all this I can say: the problem is revision A04!
There were banding issues at the older revisions, too. But since A04 the problem is much harder than before.

Comparing the same pictures at the same settings with other monitors of an older revisision, its just annoying.

Hmm I was going to go the return route with my A04 but if I'm just gonna get the same one....****. Because the banding is terrible, games like Alan Wake and Deus Ex are so ugly to look at, and they shouldn't be on a 800 dollar monitor.

What are you planning on doing? Keeping it or returning it?
post #3846 of 4819
To be honest, Ive no idea what to do with this monitor.
Maybe I will return it to my selling-partner. But I need a monitor and I dont know what to buy now...

I just called Dell my phone and they were surprised about my banding-problems with 2 monitors. They just can offer me exchange, than I would get a refurbished monitor. Nice... No way I will do that.

Maybe the Asus PG278QR could be an option for us. But its really annoying to pay 100€ more for something I dont like: a gaming-brand:rolleyes:
EDIT: The Asus uses the same panel, so there will be banding-issues, too.

Lower RGB values to 78-78-78 and brightness to something between 35-50 to get rid of overshoot.
In Nvidia control panel lower gamma to something between 0.95-0.85.
Only activate GSYNC in games where you get at least 90-100fps. I found everything lower will just make the monitor choppy which is IMHO worse than that little tearing you get with 144Hz + lower fps.

Never ever set response time to fast.

Make sure ingame settings on all your games say 2560x1440@144Hz. A lot of games (for example Battlefield) will initially start up with 60Hz which will limit the monitor to 60Hz.
Press the monitor menu button twice to make sure the mode you are running is correct.

Always disable VSYNC (vertical syncronisation), no matter if GSYNC is running or not. It adds a huge amount of input lag (even too big for non-shooter games).

If you use gysnc make sure you lock the framerate of the game to something lower than 144fps (as far as I can tell 138fps is working in every game). The reason behind this is if the fps exceeds the monitor refresh rate (144Hz) Gsync will turn itself off and you'll get tearing. Some games will even activate Vsync.
Try using ingame-commands/conifg-settings (in battlefield for example gametime.maxvariablefps 138 in user.cfg in root-game-dir) because tools like Nvidia Inspector add input lag even worse than Vsync themselfs.

Hi, i just bought this monitor two days ago and love it but... i see strange things in battlefield 4. any ideas what is causing that?
And also vertical lines are present when in the window what whows who killed you etc. Im really worried. Grid Autosport with it vibrant colors looks great. Haven't tried many other games.

EDIT: ok, it seems that the battlefield loading screens are ment to look like this?

And when i firest connected the monitor i got this view and today also after connectng and disconnecting my old samsung monitor.

Is there any difference from A04 to A03??

I bought two new S2716DG to use together with the one I already had to play racing games with 3 screen. My old one is A03, and the new ones are A04. And the screen colors of the A04 is diffrent from the A03. Its has a red look (like if I was using the Warm preset color) compared to the A03.
All the three have the same calibration (from TFT Central, with their ICC profile).

Has anyone noticed this difference?? Am I doing anything wrong??
