I'm hoping that with the higher PPI due to the smaller size that the scaling down from 1440 to 1080 won't be an issue. This could potentially be a nice bridge (desktop/web browsing at 1440p with good image quality gaming at 1080p) for me until can spring for a better video card.

thanks in advance

Not much, but I posted my opinion on 1080p scaling here. I can barely see any interpolation, and it nearly looks like a native resolution.

Here is another, playing BO3 maxed out at 1080p (the gun is in ads, so there is some DOF blurring effect at the back of the gun):

Bigger Image Here (Photo is a bit blurry too, you can see the FPS counter in the bottom right to get an idea how out of focus image is)

Didn't run any special test to check the scaling quality of this screen but i must say that i'm impressed how 1080 looks like. Ofcourse not as good as native, but one of the best screen interpolating i have seen, and i had lots of screens by now. And i'm a very picky person when it comes to image quality.

I think you won't be disapointed, and have a higher resolution for if you get a faster graphic card later on.

I have a few questions for anyone who can answer them:

 

How good or bad is this monitor right out of the box?

 

What does it have for controlling the image quality and whatnot? Can you show me all the different controls it has?

 

What's the difference between model YNY1D and KCP2Y? I could get the YNY1D from Amazon.com, or the KCP2Y from Dell.com. After taxes from Dell, my price would be almost $462.

1. Extremely good once you load the drivers, which installs the proper dell ICC color profile. When I first got it, I thought the colors were pretty mediocre, but realized a few days later it was defaulted to a generic driver and icc profile. Once I installed the drivers, it loaded a pre-configured icc profile which is a lot better.

2. Not sure. Go to the dell site and use the live sales chat function and try asking there.

Thank you.

 

Do you know which model you have?

I bought direct from Dell, so I assume KCP2Y. I think it might just be related to the warranty, as Dell doesn't give warranty by default on Amazon monitor orders. I think they require you to do some process to claim the warranty, and if you don't do it within a certain period, you get no warranty.

Dell also offers free 2 day shipping and I think $21'ish dollars cashback in the form of a gift card, so might be worth it to just grab it direct from Dell. Even if the price is better on Amazon, Dell will price match it.

I would never use the Dell gift card.

 

Amazon's price is worse for me at $505.59 after tax ($471.30 before tax) vs. almost $462 from Dell after tax. I just want to know from someone in this thread if there's some physical difference between these two models. Does it have this model printed on the back of yours? Is it in your invoice? Anything?

 

If I want to buy this monitor, then I have to be 100% sure it's going to be worth it because it would leave me very close to the red line in my bank account for the entire month.

You can get it for $408 before tax. Dell's site is really screwy and shows different prices depending on how you search, or how you land on the page. Go to google, type in dell store, click first link (should be www.dell.com/en-us/shop), search s2417dg and it should show up as $408. You might have to have a free Dell rewards account, so if you don't see that price, create an account, login, then repeat above.

And no, it doesn't show that number on my monitor or bill.
