Panel that cannot display a color correctly. Lots of backlight bleed. Can not be recommended even for a good used price. The power button is unresponsive and the screen turns on a few seconds after the button is pressed. You usually have no idea if you managed to start it or not until the panel lights up. Little annoying things ... G-sync gives a really good feeling in the games far down in the FPS scale, but it still flickers a lot at lower levels. Seems to be a general flaw that exists on some previous models and worse new models.

Superb image quality; by far the best screen I have been in front of. With 1 ms response time and G-Sync, it is also the best game screen I have had the pleasure to use. Moreover, the fact that it looks like a normal screen, without bling-bling and LEDs that other gaming screens suffer from, is a big plus for me who has passed 30. The only thing to complain about is that the power switch on the bottom of the screen is far too hard. It is almost like the screen overturns before the button is pressed. Other buttons on the underside of the panel suffer from the same problems they have. Lucky that you don't have to press them very often ... Edit, two years later: The location of the USB ports on the back is very difficult. You have to practically lift the whole screen and put it on "stomach" to succeed in getting something. Should have been better.

I have used the screen for about 2-3 years + Even backlighting + Good colors (to be TN panel, fix the correct ICC profile) + Totally ok black (again, to be TN panel) + Quick, do not notice any backlogs + Height adjustment + Thin edges + Pleasant anti-glare surface - Bad colors unless the correct ICC profile is used (color calibration via Windows), which unfortunately happens in some games including

Positively: Good workspace in applications, fit 27 "very well. Nice move in the picture with 144Hz and G-Sync. Right stylish design, stylish, fits most of the time. Relatively narrow edges. No extreme quirks / attributes. Cheaper than the competitors. negative: High gamma / brightness default. Very bad blackness in the picture. Poor color rendering, slightly cured image even after calibration. The viewing angle is ok but not more. Nvidia G-Sync sticks on the foot with superlists that leave a sticker sticker when you remove it, requiring some work to get rid of. Summary: Good screen for FPS gaming with high demands on response. Less good for image processing, after calibration, it works helpful. The color rendering is poor at lower brightness and you want to decrease the brightness to increase the very badness. Gives it a "nja" in grades, however, I think similar models on the market suffer a bit of the same problem. Update: One year after purchase, I gained some artificial burn-in at the top of the screen, it appears quite clear even against bright backgrounds and is very ugly / distracting in darker backgrounds. The error covers 80% of the horizontal on the monitor and 1-3cm down from the top. Pulling down the score because of this, Dell support has proven to be difficult to get in Sweden, linked to German pages when trying to find them. But they will have a Swedish department to see if they are willing to do something about the error. Have read about others who had the same mistake, they blame for having static images on the screen for a long time as burnt but I've always had power saving mode running. Never had a burn-in on a LED screen before.

Points for stylish and simple design, and features like G-sync and 144hz are as good here as on any other model. However, much less, this panel is about to show even banding and unusual vertical viewing. With a round calibration with a professional color meter, the image gets a lot, much better, but can not even measure an average IPS panel. It's several miles from a high quality screen like an iMac. Should you only play games, this screen works well, but is probably extremely expensive in Sweden for the picture quality you get. Should you surf or watch movies, you need to have grave visual errors so as not to disturb yourself in details of shadows and dark parties. Update 171127: I've got the screen once replaced by Dell, with no difference at all. Then the explanation that "it should simply be so", then I sent it back to the repurchase shop.

Bought this because I wanted Gsync and did not want the screen to look like a spacecraft. Want to have it in an office if I want to. + Does not look like a pimped spacecraft. Looks very stylish. + 144 Hz, 1 ms, Gsync + Good picture if you change some settings. Personally, I do not touch anything in the Nvidia Control Panel, but on the other hand, I run with 23% brightness, 70% contrast, and Preset Mode Standard on the colors. Looks good for me for surf and games. The TN panel is a bit boring, but it's worth the compromise to get a clean screen, I think. + Adjustable stand + My ex has dead pixels or blb - The buttons are very sluggish - Very color banding in dark / black colors. Seems very clear in movies.

I have had the screen now in a few days. I come from a Eizo Foris FS2333 that has an IPS panel. Sure, this is a TN panel, but after calibration, it has almost as good as my old color screen. The viewing angle is obviously bad, but it is something you can count on when buying a monitor with a TN panel. I calibrated the screen with tftpanels profile: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/icc_profiles/dell_s2716dg.icc In addition, I changed the following settings in the screen: Brightness 26% Color: R (97%), G (99%), B (96%) 144 Hz and 1440p is magic! Player most Overwatch and it is like night o day compared to my old monitor. NOTE! To enjoy this screen needed a juicy graphics, 10xx series to be specific.

Bought this after hearing all sorts of horror stories about IPS screens. Read about a lot of different sides, most of them gave really good review, while some solid overall display and said that the colors were bad, etc. straight from the box, I can agree that the colors were washed out and boring, but after using '' Fattys Gone Wild '' ICC profile from Overclock.net and then reduce the brightness a lot so everything looks absolutely perfect, think this looks better than my old Dell which was an E-IPS screen. To go from 1920 x 1200 to 2560 x 1440, and from 60 Hz to 144.Det heeelt is wonderful when you play Overwatch! Do not be fooled by them where flashy IPS screens, is a reason that they are becoming as cheap as this screen, they suffer from very rubbish simply. No dead pixels, no IPS glow, wonderful!

Have had the screen for two weeks now and is no more than satisfied! Chose between it and an Asus PG278Q, but it went away pretty fast after reading about all the problems. Do not regret my purchase! Replaced my old Benq XL2411Z against this when my computer is rather oversized for just 1080P. If you compare these two screens so Dell has better colors after some tweaking spirit of settings. Viewing angles are okay, compared to my old screen and this was the straw sharper. To be just a TN panel, I think it performs excellent! Maybe none of you who is doing image editing and the like, but I bought it for gaming! Run the following settings on the screen: Brightness 35% Contrast 70% The Nvidia control panel, I changed the following: Gamma 0.70 Digital Vibrance 60% The rest I drive like it was from the beginning. In short, a good screen for gaming. + No Backlight Bleed + No dead pixels + Appearance that does not scream gaming + G sync 144hz - For small buttons below the screen, hard to tap into. - Monitor the Deep Sleep mode, encourages you to turn it off
