Dell S2716DG 1440 144 Hz G-Sync Owners Thread - Page 419

I understand it's expensive nonetheless, but the majority of purchasers here are here because it was the cheapest option. There's a reason Dell didn't brand this within its Ultrasharp line.

Subtract the g-sync module, and you have a 27" 144Hz 1440p monitor for $250. We're not exactly paying a premium for quality on this particular model.

This makes complete sense if the monitor were always $500 (which I think it's about to be), but more often than not, retailers are (at least they "were") charging full price. Just because I bought a $700 monitor for $500 doesn't mean I'm expecting $500 quality. The mention of Ultrasharp makes sense, though. Had I been more familiar with Dell monitors and their lines I perhaps would have questioned that.

As far as "what is high end" goes, well, for gaming, I think this monitor could be regarded as high end. Not top tier, but high end. Top-tier gaming monitors' prices top out at around $1200, whereas flat-out "top tier" monitors go beyond $5000, but are highly latent compared to gaming monitors; in that respect, high-end gaming monitors really don't exist.

Also Huge reason that banding is almost gone i that I found weird bug in NVIDIA drivers,
when my dynamic range is set to full I have horibble banding but when I set it to limited everything loses colour and becomes greyish.

BUT if you set it to limited range and go to NVIDIA colour settings and just move hue or vibrance a bit( you don't even need to save it just move and cancel) blacks will become blacks again and everything will be the same jsut the banding will be gone, try that KempA and anyone that has banding issues.

Use my Nvidia settings from picture, Monitor Brightness 22 Contrast 75 and try that trick with Limited range.
I even tried Black level test when my dynamic range was on limited and everything looked the same compared to full dynamic range with this trick.

Only issue I have with this is that after pc restart I have to move my hue or vibrance again or sometimes in fullscreen application it resets itself to greyish again. But when it works it looks good.

EDIT: just realised that Nvidia settings picture is blurry, It's 47% brightness, 52% contrast, 0.70% gamma and 60% vibrance, Rev A04

I'm going to try. Here is what I have in a game. The photo is not taken well, sorry.

I have to say that I agree with you regarding Nvidia cards exacerbating the banding. I just refuse to believe that a reputable manufacturer would release a high-end monitor with such a high degree of banding. There have already been people in this thread who claim that they have minimal/no banding. But I don't have an AMD card to test this theory out.

Perhaps someone in this thread does?

Same here. Had that to varying degrees on all six that I went through, but one was seriously bad; it had a 3+mm gap (or should I say gape) along the entire right side. Very ugly to look at. I imagine that that alone would not be enough to return one. Reminds me of the gaps on the Note 4 screens when they debuted. Samsung didn't recognize it as a defect. I think when you're paying 3x the amount of a standard product, aesthetic uniformity should be warrantied.

So if you remove your card and uninstall the drivers, should you see a difference?

Took a couple photos of how that Dawn Engine photo looks on my A04. Looks the same on my A01 as well.




I have my brightness on the monitor set to 33%, Contrast 75%

NVidia control panel;

Brightness: 50
Contrast: 50
Gamma: .64
Digital Vibrance: 68%

The banding is definitely noticeable but unless I sit really close looking for it it's not bad enough to bother me. I might have got a lucky one but this banding issue is about as bad as it is for any other monitor I own (3x Acer R240HY, 2x Acer H236HL and Samsung S20B300B). Probably better than the H236HL honestly, that's a pretty cheap IPS panel.

How to force NVIDIA settings only for games ?

Thx Just Impolite for your settings. But i set Gamma to 0.8, with 0.7 it's too dark.
Have a question. Do I need to set ICC profile, or it's enough to tune just monitor settings and in Nvidia control panel? I installed some ICC profile, but with it, everything looks too bright.
post #4186 of 4370
Hey everyone,

So I have come across a very weird problem.

I have a Dell S2716DG and just randomly, a couple days ago, none of my games hold the Nvidia control panel settings anymore. I used to play OW with the Nvidia control panel settings where I adjusted the gamma/brightness etc. But now whenever I start up OW or any other game, my screen becomes really bright and it stays like that, even when I exit the game.

I have to go into the Nvidia control panel and adjust the settings again by playing around with the brightness slider. What's weird is that the Nvidia control panel reports that my settings are the same that I had set them to, but I can automatically tell my screen is brighter and that it is not my color settings at all.

This just started happening randomly and I don't know what the cause is. I tried reinstalling my GPU drivers and nothing helped.

Anyone else experiencing this?

UPDATE: I fixed it! It was the god dam good for nothing Windows creators update! You go to your settings via windows search -> gaming -> then you uncheck "the option where it says show game bar when playing full screen games verified by microsoft" something along those lines, if anyone else is having this problem.

I found it so much easier to just run the Windows Monitor Calibration tool. That creates an ICC profile which negates the need for the NCP. You can add digital vibrance through NCP if you like as well.

IMHO it's not necesary to create ICC profile. NVCP gives more abilities to tune gamma, brightness and contrast. Am I right or not about creating ICC profile. What is it for if I can tune monitor w/o it

Does this model suffer from banding? Is it a lottery?

I do not know if I can buy it

I can Tell me any owner if he appreciates banding in this video:

Second: 0:54
