Dell S2716DG 144hz 27 Inch QHD Gaming Monitor
This is hugely impressive S2716DG pc gaming monitor from Dell. They have pretty much pulled out all the stops with this 27 inch quad HD monitor giving it some of the latest in display technology to deliver one of the best affordable gaming monitors available on the market today.
Dell Gaming Monitors are Packed Full of Tech’
The first thing to mention is inclusion of NVIDIA G-Sync, the ground breaking display technology that allows for a refresh rate of 144Hz delivering some of the smoothest graphics our eyes will allow us to view on a PC monitor. It eliminates screen tearing and minimises input lag making scenes appear instantly and objects look sharper. Read more about G-Sync Display Technology here.
Dell has also used TN panel technology with a contrast ratio of 876:1 when calibrated, although Dell advertises it with a 1000:1 contrast ratio (typical). It also boasts a 1ms response time (grey to grey) with a colour depth of 16.7 million colours across this 16:9 aspect ratio, widescreen quad HD 2560 x 1440 @144Hz display.
The S2716DG Gaming Monitor is Beautifully Designed
The S2716DG is certainly minimalist when looking at it from the front. The bezel of this 144Hz 27 inch monitor is 8mm thick around the top and the sides and a mere 17.5mm thick at the bottom, and feature a two stage design with an outer plastic edge and a fairly thin panel border. The profile of the S2716DG is also very slim making it easy to use with an alternative monitor arm if required by way of the VESA compatible rear mount.
The screen surface is medium matte anti-glare to reduce reflections, although the back is a high gloss black plastic finish which does pick up dust and finger prints easily.
The display control buttons are discreetly hidden on the underside of the bezel, bottom right, to keep the front clean of distractions.
The S2716DG Gaming Monitor is Fully Flexible
This monitor has a fully flexible stand which allows the user to tilt it forward and backwards and swivel it left and right on its base with a smooth action. It also features height adjustment and the ability to pivot the screen through 90 degrees to allow users to use it in portrait mode rather than landscape.
Dell Gaming Monitors Feature Great Connectivity
As is expected of a current monitor, especially one meant for gaming, the S2716DG has a good range of connectivity options:
- 1 HDMI 1.4 connector
- 1 DP 1.2 connector
- 4 x USB3.0
- 1 x Audio Line-out)
