Dell S2716DG 1440 144 Hz G-Sync Owners Thread - Page 414

Is it that Dell Canada has better sale prices on this ?

I often see the 27" for $720 CAD - 10%OFFMONITOR = $648 CAD ~ $483 USD.
Currently it is listed for its regular $780 CAD, but every month or so it drops to $720 for a bit, from what I have seen during the last few months.

I purchased the little brother S2417DG when on sale and using the always active monitor coupon, for $450 CAD , which is around $335 USD.

For that price, and having a 3 year warranty, I am more than pleased with mine.

Yes there is banding, that is the only big caveat I see, and am somewhat annoyed with bad gamma, but I used my Colormunki + Dispcal to correct it, and I don't really watch videos or movies here, and for the occasional YouTube I am fine with it.

For games it may annoy me now and then I guess, but ah well, when that happens I just remind myself how much I paid for it smile.gif
And I do like the motion clarity of TN.

When there are IPS alternatives that are much better than what we have today in terms of QC and panel lottery, I may consider maybe shelling out more money for one.

If it is not for the banding, everything else on this monitor looks good to me.
Maybe colors are not IPS quality and there is more gamma shift, but maybe I was expecting it to be much worse before I got mine, so actually was somewhat pleasantly surprised when I put it up.

Maybe I am just lucky not having an IPS right next to it to compare tongue.gif

Probably. I sold mine after a week because I like the way my p2715q looks soo much better.

I will probably revisit g-sync/high refresh when dell comes out with a 4k, IPS, Gsync monitor. redface.gif

This is probably an easy glitch to fix, but I suspect engineering isn't even aware of it because the phone support flowchart monkeys don't think it's something to be reported and just blow off everybody that reports it to them.
But I read that some got to wake up their monitor with the mouse ?

There is a solution ?

What? Isn't that expected for "normal" monitors? You move the mouse and the monitor comes out of sleep as well because the signal from the computer turns it on? I would highly prefer that compared to having to press a button on the monitor itself.

There is no solution that I am aware of. Yes, every other monitor on the planet would behave this way, but the Dell has a bug and won't come out of "deep sleep" unless you press a button on the monitor itself.

As far as I know there is no workaround. You either have to leave deep sleep on and press monitor button to wake or turn deep sleep off and have the monitor consume 13W while sitting idle.

I just want to leave a note about my experience with Dell warranty here. My A00 model died just a few days ago. Called support, explained the situation and they overnighted a warranty replacement. I got an A04 model. Boy what a difference with the glare coating! So much better. The image is much clearer. Also, zero bleed and so far can't see any clouding, smudges or bad pixels. There is a free return label and I'm going to send the old monitor back in the same box. Super easy. Glad I picked Dell. thumb.gif

Also, the text ghosting when scrolling web pages is much less noticeable in the A04 model they sent me.

Would you guys return this:


This is the 24" model of this display, id have to drive around an hour to closest best buy. I actually really like this thing, shame it had to have uneven backlight frown.gif

Would just suck to get a worse one and drive back for another, ya know.

What brightness setting is the picture taken with ? Do you see that issue in person, or just through camera ?

I have a 24", manufactured Feb 2017, and (in person) it looks very very uniform to me.

I have my brightness at 32 though, calibrated to around 100 cd /m2 I believe. I also had it at 40 before, and even at that I don't think I was seeing any issues.

If I bump brightness to 100% I start seeing some blocks of unevenness, though I don't think is as bad as what that picture of yours shows.
If I lower it to my normal setting of 32 though, I can't see anything, it looks perfect, and I am very happy with it.

Note that I have not tried any cameras yet, I am worried it will just show me something I don't want to see, besides I don't play games on my PC looking through my phone's camera smile.gif

Scotty, the picture is pretty worthless without telling us what goldex mentioned and ALSO the shutter times of your camera.

Forget phone cameras because they will auto adjust until you see anything.

I can see this in person, looks the exact same. No idea about my camera, its just an android phone with everything on auto.
