Yes, the ASUS has IPS panel but it is known to be of a lottery to get one of these with minimal to no problems. I have tried the PG279Q and although it is a gorgeous monitor, I cannot help but to think that the S2417DG is a better choice in some ways (e.g. no lottery, problems with backlight bleeding).

What do you guys think? Has anyone tried both of these monitors and can come up with some conclusion (maybe someone has but I missed it in this thread)? Is the PG279Q worth the extra €200 over the Dell S2417DG?

consider the Acer Predator XB271HU. Same panel as Asus but better quality control
Choose dell if you prefer 24" and don't care about view angles, in other words, a gamer's choice. the 27" IPS one is for people who really cares about IPS and color accuracy.

I can currently get the PG279Q for €700 (deal ends today) where I reside while Dell S2417DG goes for €500. The XB271HU, although a fine choice, is currently €800 here which is why it is not being considered although I would had it been €700 as well.

Do you have the S2417DG? How close to an IPS monitor is it when looking at it from straight ahead? I am a gamer of course but I also enjoy color accuracy for games with beautiful scenery (e.g. modded Skyrim, Battlefield 1 etc.). Since the Swift is IPS its almost a nobrainer for me, but then again I've read so much positive stuff about the S2417DG... Can't unfortunately try it here as there is none in any nearby stores to do so, so I am currently relying on pictures (which doesn't do it any justice, looking at the pictures of it from a crappy TN panel).

Desktop space isn't an issue and I sit as close/far to/from the monitor as deemed necessary by the size of it.

I will help you.

I tried like 10 monitors in the last 2 years :

-benq xl2730
-asus mg279q
-asus pg279q
-asus pb287q
-acer x34
-acer x341ck
-benq z35
-asus pg27aq
-dell S2417DG


I'm never satisfied. I want 4k AND high refresh rate. I tried ultrawide and I was not excited about it, but I agree it looks baller on your desk.
So, while I wait for the PG27UQ, the S2417DG is the best compromise I found.
The 24inch size makes the pixel density "acceptable" over the 27 inches at 1440p.
Also, one thing people don't talk between the PG279Q and the S2417DG is the motion blur improvement.
TN panels have worst color but the pixel response time is faster and I can definitely see the improved clarity at 165Hz on the S2417DG. It you play a lot of FPS, I would definitely go for the S2417DG.
In terms of colors, honeslty, both IPS and TN suck in my opinion once you have seen OLED...

So, I chose the S2417DG over the PG279Q but note that you will have to sit closer to the monitor due to the smaller size.

Holy crap, I actually missed the fact that there is a 4K 144 Hz monitor coming out soon! This makes the PG279Q look like 1080p in comparison to 1440p tongue.gif Yeah, I will definitely go with the S2417DG - it has everything I want in a monitor and doesn't take an enormous amount of room on your desk. Awesome PPI (123.41 PPI vs. 108.79 PPI on 27"), excellent TN panel, G-Sync, very little issues and for a lower price than the older, more problematic PG279Q. Guess I got blinded by the whole IPS thing tongue.gif No, S2417DG is what I need! (Agree BTW on OLED, its gorgeous!)

Thanks a lot!

Some help maybe... I had two of the very best IPS gaming panels. Two times an EIZO FS2735 was standing on my desk. The second model was the one I kept for some weeks with the better picture than the first. But in the end I switched back to TN because I cannot get used to IPS glow. I know that those gaming IPS panels are not the ultimate best IPS panels overall. But nothing else (better) is available if one wants IPS for gaming. The glow was really not strong, but there were simply too many occasions where it was too annoying. I didn't want to watch GoT at that time on the monitor because it was too distracting. Have definitely less hassle and stress with a good TN panel.

Thanks for your input! I did not consider IPS glow actutally, but I agree! It can be a pain to watch, and I was especially planning to game in dark rooms with my monitor.
No, I really think the Dell S2417DG is currently the best >=144 Hz monitor there is on the market. No headache from all the possible issues of an IPS panel (especially with the one on RoG Swift), costs €200 less which can be put on to a new GPU and has almost as good color accuracy as an IPS panel. My decision has been made smile.gif

Thanks a lot people!

Absolutely agree with this. People who keep saying IPS is worlds better than TN probably have never owned an OLED yet. They both look like garbage compared to one.
post #1118 of 1282
obviously OLED is better, so is SED/FED... all are equally available tongue.gif

ok, there's an OLED for 3500$, but that's my 6 months worth of salary, so I pretend it's not there.

And the upcoming 4K 144hz is 2000$ - less painful but more or less same story.

Guys, is this monitor - compared to the XB271HU - OK with colors? i like them to pop in games. How is it side by side? any photos? I don't have the patience to go through 112 pages wink.gif

i FINALLY GOT MY S2417DG.

I WAS USING A 9 YEAR OLD S2409W 60 HZ 1080P MONITOR. compared to that what a difference.

The good smile.gif

1) Excellent color for a TN

2) GSYNC ND 165HZ IS SOOOOO amazing

3) NO back light bleed.I got deep blacks. smile.gif

4) No issues with cable and OC to 165Hz

5) Amazing response tym.

6) 2k gaming is awsm , games are more sharp and crisp

7) Thin bezels jst WOW

8) No Banding issues during GAMING.

9) Using Mista's ICC profile- They are AWSM

10) 1080p gaming is not that blurry as expected. But once u have experienced 2k u will never go back.


The Bad :i

1) Mild Banding in some videos especially in KODI /Youtube . But it was not dat adverse in HD/UHD videos.
2) Took 5 weeks to arrive
3) Needs calibration


The Ugly frown.gif

1) Paid $ 670 for this (I think i paid the highest amt in this forum)
2) GTX 970 here



Any way I am really happy with this monitor. Thank u all. Spcl thanks to Mistasparkul for his amazing ICC profile .

Congratz. thumb.gif Now you just need a working keyboard and you're good to go. tongue.gif

I feel you on the GTX 970 part, that's why I ordered a Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 1080 yesterday, arrives tomorrow. Will be a great weekend.

Have my S2417DG for three weeks now and am still very happy. Buyer's remorse (which I had because I spent a goddamn 500 Euros on a monitor) is gone, I removed the foil on all parts which for me means: I will keep it.

Played the Quake Champions Beta with ~ 120fps (on low/medium with the GTX 970) and had an absolute blast.

PS: When I look at the banding photos over in the S27 thread.. that panel is definitely worse than ours.
