Any opinions or reviews on the new Dell S2417DG? - Page 117

I bought the Acer Predator XB241YU after having tried the Dell and am pretty happy with it (despite horrible clouding and some backlight bleed). There's also the AOC AG241QG (or AG241QX if you're not bothered about the extra 21hz and G-Sync). Both have the same panel and gamma control in OSD, but you'll have to put up with a rather aggressive anti-glare coating. The AOC is heavily discounted right now on Amazon UK.

I was also looking at the AG241QG since it has exactly the same specs as the S2417DG. Unfortunately it is €100 more expensive then the Dell so I'm not fully convinced yet, might have to dig into some reviews later on.

My previous monitor was also an IPS panel so I'm slightly afraid that the problems I'm having with the Dell might be inherent (to a smaller extent) to all modern day TN panels. I'd much rather go for an IPS panel but those are so expensive and most also suffer from clouding or backlight bleeding.

Has anyone had any luck with returning their Dell and getting a later revision?

The AOC AG241QX I have barely suffers from any color banding. Don't know about the QG, but I expect similar behaviour.

Keyword barely. biggrin.gif

Any other problems or happy in general with the AG241?

Coating could be less aggressive and I can't seem to get display scaling to work (despite having no similar issues with another AG241QX I had earlier). Obviously the general TN panel technology limitations apply here as well (vertical gamma shift, weak black). I also have some slight BLB at the bottom center and left side. Aside from that the monitor is fine.

Got my 2nd s2417dg today, and I have to say. Backlight bleed was not a percieved problem when I had one monitor, but now that I have two side by side, the new one is much better.

What about the overall gamma and washed out colors of the screen? Do you notice any color banding on either of the monitors?

This is too subjective to give you any feedback. I am not able to measure anything. Just observe. And to my oberservations, I am not able to see anything like this.

I've googled banding, and are not really able to see it. I remember seeing this when my first monitor was new, but I may 1) gotten used to it, or 2) fixed it with settings.


In regards to colors, I like this monitor. I had it side by side with a DEll U2515h IPS earlier, and it did not stand out as "washed out" or anything like that. I know that high hz monitors have a lower color accuracy than other monitors, but I love the way the s2417 looks.

Just out of curiousity but what revisions are your panels? Check the back, it should say something like Axx (xx being the revision number).

My horrible panel is one of the first revisions A00, I wonder if the later revisions are better.

Both mine are A00. Even though there is more backlight bleed on my first one, they are one and the same. biggrin.gif
