Any opinions or reviews on the new Dell S2417DG?

post #1 of 1281
Thread Starter 
Was looking at the new Dell 24 inch 1440p gsync monitor.

https://www.amazon.com/Dell-S2417DG-YNY1D-24-Inch-LED-Lit/dp/B01IOO4SGK

Has anyone got their hands on this monitor?

  • This will load the proper icc profile, as Windows doesn't detect the monitor properly and uses a generic color profile


Calibrated ICC Provided by MistaSparkul
  • Calibrated with a i1 Display Pro
  • Use this guide to load the profile properly
    Brightness - 32
    Contrast - 75
    Color - Custom Color R:100 G:100 B:100


Power Draw at 165hz
  • 0w - turned off
  • 0.3w - deep sleep (after 10 minutes of sleep)
  • 12w - idle/sleep
  • 20w - 0 bright
  • 24w - 25 bright
  • 27w - 50 bright
  • 30w - 75 bright
  • 38w - 100 bright
  • 144hz is practically the same, just subtract 2w from each brightness


UFO Testing for Ghosting
  • Use this to detect ghosting or other types of trailing/overshoot and dial in your preferred settings for ULMB


How to Overclock to 165hz
  1. Go to the OSD menu
  2. Go to display
  3. Go to Overclock andenable
  4. Change Overclock Refresh rate to 165hz
  5. Power down the monitor and turn it back on
  6. Enable 165hz through your GPU control panel


How to Enable G-Sync (Removes all tearing within the supported 30-165 range)
  1. This should be enabled by default once you install the display, if not:
  2. Go to your NVCP and click setup G-Sync


How to Enable ULMB (Motion Blur Reduction)
  1. This requires the monitor to be in 120hz refresh rate (I think 100hz, and 80hz are also supported), so switch to it in your GPU control panel
  2. Disable G-Sync in the GPU control panel, again, this is required
  3. Go to the OSD menu
  4. Go to display
  5. Go to ULMB andEnable
  6. You can test using the ghosting test link at the top
  7. You can hide some of the ghosting by lowering the contrast in the OSD
  8. I also recommend you only set it this way to access ULMB on your desktop to test at the UFO site, it's far more convenient to set it game specific via manage 3d settings, as it auto switches on/off and remembers your settings for strobed and non-strobed modes, this is amazing coming from the 10 step process on BenQ blur reduction with tweaks every time you want to play a game.


Using FastSync and G-Sync Together (Will remove tearing when your FPS is above the G-Sync range)
  1. MakeG-Sync is enabled in the NVCP
  2. Do not cap or limit your frame rate, you want an uncapped FPS for FastSync
  3. Go to Manage 3D Settings
  4. Find the game you want to configure
  5. Go to Vertical Sync andFast


Using FastSync and ULMB Together (My favorite mode)
  1. I recommend you be able to hold an average FPS above 120 FPS, the higher the better, I have some older games that run at 400fps+ with some graphical tweaks, and this looks ridiculously smooth and responsiveness
  2. Do not cap or limit your frame rate, you want an uncapped FPS for FastSync
  3. Go to Manage 3D Settings
  4. Go to Program Settings tab
  5. Find the game you want to configure
  6. Set Monitor Technology to ULMB
  7. Set Vertical Sync to Fast


Using G-Sync and ULMB Together (A glitch, still unconfirmed so far on S24, but still plausible)
  1. Requires a 3D Kit IR Emitter or tricking the driver into believing you have one
  2. Reddit post with instructions
  3. Tricking the driver tutorial here, skip the import step (Did not work for me)

I wouldn't get this thing until the price becomes lower than the S2716DG. It's just way overpriced and it has been since it became available.

Getting mine on Tuesday, Dell had a 10% off coupon a few days ago. I'm wondering whether the AOC AG241QG is better, or cheaper, but it'll take a while for it to become available in the US.

Do tell if there are pixel inversion problems.

Will do! Just watched https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7kY_0Ugv7U and really hope it doesn't do that...

The website says "Anti-glare, 3H Hard Coating", is there more you need to know?

Dell lowered the price to $499.99, and I haven't even received mine yet. I paid $512.99. *sigh*

It could be worse. It's $569.99 on amazon.com right now while the S2716DG is $549.99.

 

You only paid $13 more. That's nothing.

Hmm. It looks to me like he has the refresh rate at 60Hz.
