Dell Gaming S2716DGR 27.0” LED Monitor

The S2716DGR is an uncomplicated basic looking design. Gamers purchasing this design will not get any enhanced features, flashing lights or unique designs, but what is on the inside is what will count. It is developed with a slim panel border with a that has anti-glare coating. Its resolution is developed at 2560 x 1440, supporting a 1080p UHD panel and a pixel density of 108.8 PPI, providing a monitor that is sharp, clear and precise.

The main strength of the monitor is its overall performance. With NVIDIA GSync Technology that provides sharp moving graphical images and the fast refresh rate at an incredible 1MS, which is a key component for the modern game. Any blurring images are eliminated and provides jitter-free graphics. Adjustments of the screen are very flexible at a horizontal or vertical adjustment and adjusted to different heights, including swivelling and pivoting. Games can also be played in a landscape or portrait position with adjustable position bars deployed behind it to allow the laptop to be adjusted. It’s colour density however is as sharp and is not built with an IPS panel.

Connectivity has always been a strong point, with the display featuring a DisplayPort and HDMI connectors, with audio output and four 3.0 USB ports.

A concern for gamers is the manual buttons on the display controls which require hard pressing to activate any control set. The basic controls exist including brightness and contrast, moved to a maximum level of 630:1 ratio.

The unique feature that we have found is Sleep Mode. This mode is unfortunately not as sharp to wake up to the settings the monitor is set at. The settings originally set at would need to be re-adjusted.

THE VERDICT

A monitor that is high in resolution imagery, if hardcore gamers are insistent on a monitor that is crystal clear on graphics with sharp imagery, you cannot look past this monitor. With top of the range graphics using NVIDIA, even if multiple games are played at one time the monitor will respond straightaway. Another key fundamental is the adjustments of the monitor at any direction and viewing position at the gamers discretion, being flexible in height as well. This viewing position is probably the only component that stands out from most monitors, which could entice gamers in buying it.
