Any opinions or reviews on the new Dell S2417DG? - Page 141

Well if Dell S2417DG was actually 1/2 the price of XB271HU that would be nice

but in my country S2417DG = 2400 PLN and XB271HU = 3200-3400 PLN as of late.

What I find absolutely bizzarre is that XF270HUA is CHEAPER than S2417DG while being a 27" 144hz 1440p IPS screen, exactly the same as XB271HU, only lacking g-sync. I'm using German pricing for XF270HUA (mindfactory, amazon - > they ship to PL), but still.... what the heck.

And all of those stories about Acer's products being crap are sadly true. Then again, I'd rather accept uneven whites than TN washed out, dull, lifeless image. So, to ask the same question again: can you make this monitor look gorgeous (comparable to XB271HU which definitively is an eye candy), or are you stuck with that "TN look" of washed out image "for gamers" that I absolutely hate?

I scoured every owner thread of the gsync monitors and the dell had the least complaints, until we get an affordable local dimming or OLED monitor this dell is the consensus pick.

Thanks for your opinion mate. Decision made, I've ordered one for £400.

Cheers

I've been using my 24" Dell since launch I use a smaller one for surfing 60hz.

This is a really good monitor for gaming I found 27" too big with my ROG Swift so I switched to a 24" Dell DG and it's loads better for fast paced gaming. I have the monitor like 2 feet away on my desk and it's still good. I mainly got the smaller monitor because Divinity Original Sin 2 looks like bad on my 27" reading text and blocking out all that light just wasn't doing it for me so I switched to the 1440P Dell monitor and it was a great switch

In your case yes it's a bit more complicated situation I understand. Here in the US you can find the Dell for 400 USD many times but the Acer XB271HU has always been 750+ USD, maybe 700 USD on sale. Just not really worth it when you think about what you're paying extra for over the Dell in my opinion. Unfortunately I no longer own my XB270HU(almost same panel as XB271HU) so I cannot actually do a direct side by side comparison with those 2 monitors. The only IPS screen I still own is the Asus MG24U 4k IPS that I use side by side to the Dell. I would say the Dell gets respectably close to the Asus, it's not 100% exact of course, but close enough for me personally.

I managed to create custom resolutions i wanted(3008x1692@100hz, 3072x1728@100hz, 3200x1800@100hz, 3840x2160@85hz, 5120x2880@60hz). It seems the problem was caused by timings set on auto which are determined by your current refresh rate. I simply changed my desktop refresh rate to 120hz and it allowed me to create this resolutions. Already tested it ingame and everything works fine and scales well.

Why not just use DSR?

I just got this monitor directly from Amazon (double checked to make sure they were the reseller) and got a revision A00 manufactured in Jan 2017. Kinda disappointed in that regard, but my games look amazing anyways at 165hz.

The only issue I notice is colorbanding and it is VERY noticeable particularly in this picture around the green area: http://i.imgur.com/Y8gj9Dd.png
Can anybody with a later revision (A04 or A05) check the image and confirm if the colorbanding is still there? My previous el-cheapo monitor QNIX QX2710LED doesn't have the colorbanding issue with that picture.

I think there is only A00 for S2417DG - those revisions you listed are for the 27" version.
post #1409 of 1410
Yeah, I just got an A00 from may 2017 direct from Dell.

Only the 27" has multiple revisions.

It should go away if you undo any changes you've made to the gamma curve, either through the NVIDIA Control Panel or an .icc profile.
