Any opinions or reviews on the new Dell S2417DG? - Page 8

post #71 of 1551
Thx for the pics. Coating looks good! It can only be a light one, because with aggressive one like for example on the XL2730Z you could never see the window mirroring as clearly as on your pics. It would be just 2 big white blurry spots, instead of a clear & sharp picture of your window.

So it has a nice light coating.

Exactly. This is how you recognize the lighter, superior matte panels.

Regarding that occasional 1ms stutter, try changing your G-SYNC setting over to "Enable G-SYNC for windowed and full-screen mode". The default is just "Enable G-SYNC for full-screen mode" and for me, this default setting causes the same occasional 1ms stutter you described. When I switch to the setting that enables G-SYNC for both Windowed and Full-Screen mode, it becomes butter-smooth even though my games are in true full-screen.

I take it that's a Nvidia driver or G-Sync related issue and not something inherently wrong with this monitor?

I wouldn't know. I just know that I get the same thing he gets on my XB241H when I leave the NVIDIA Control Panel set to its default G-SYNC setting.

Sounds Nvidia related if you get the same thing with a completely different panel and brand. I'll place an order and see what happens.

You aren't noticing any pixel inversion? Well if not then that's good. It wouldn't be cool to push you to go looking for it.

Although, I never said I was cool, so I would like to nudge into running such games as Witcher 3/Battlefront/Bioshock Infinite and mouse panning slowly. You don't notice an array of vertical lines as you inspect closely(it could also be they went for a checkerboard pattern, or horizontal lines)? And is this at the default brightness value? It would be real swell if it got fixed. Also, could you try running it at 2560x1080 w/ black bars and see if that is a comfortable enough size to play games with?

As for the gamma calibration and matte coating. I would suspect they implemented the same methods as they did with the s2716dg's Rev A02/A03(A03 is where they fixed the gamma, supposedly). For me, I think I actually preferred the color quality of the Dell when increasing the digital vibrance compared to the Xb270hu, as the blues and greens were a bit darker on the IPS. Although the reds and yellows were definitely more saturated/vivid on the Xb270hu. Same goes for Samsung. Samsung seems to generally have dark and more natural colors(CF391, S23A750D), and I don't think it's necessarily my first preference.

Looks like trying to capture a bunch of different monitors at once isn't the best idea, but maybe it's good enough:

Top left: Dell S2417DG
Top right: Samtron 94B
Bottom left: Lenovo Y510P
Bottom right: MacBook Pro (late 2014, if memory serves)

Looks to me like the coating on the Samtron is a lot more aggressive, while the Lenovo seems to use the same type.

Hmm not sure i think its the new lighter coating but could be the picture. Do you get annoyed reading text on that monitor at native resolution or is it clear?

Appreciate the early prognosis and the photos. Please keep up the good work.
