Dell 24 S-series gaming monitor (S2417DG) review

 

G-sync-compatible monitors tend to be expensive -- the cheap ones are predominantly old or refurbished -- so it's nice to have some budget options like the Dell S2417DG. Dell's price is on the high side -- even on sale -- but you can find it for about...

As long as you don't pay retail, the Dell S2417DG is a decent addition to a budget Nvidia gaming setup.

Dell 24 Gaming Monitor S2417DG

 

The pricey Dell 24 Gaming Monitor S2417DG uses speedy refresh rates and Nvidia's G-Sync anti-tearing technology to deliver excellent high-resolution gaming performance.

Nvidia G-Sync enabled. Fast refresh rate. Strong gaming performance. Fully adjustable stand. Bezel-free cabinet.

Expensive. Slightly skewed greens. Limited video inputs.

Don't let the Dell 24 Gaming Monitor S2417DG fool you; despite its business-like appearance, it is equipped with a high-resolution 24-inch panel that can be clocked up to 165Hz to deliver outstanding fast-action gameplay, and it uses Nvidia's G-Sync...

Dell 24 S2417DG Review: Stunning for Price

 

If you're looking for a 2560 x 1440 monitor, the Dell S2417DG should be at the very top of your list. For as low as $429 (if you buy from Dell), you're getting a sharp and responsive 1440p display complete with useful game modes and Nvidia G-Sync...

Vibrant quad-HD display ; Very responsive ; Useful game presets ; Highly adjustable

Stiff navigation buttons

The Dell 24 S2417DG packs vibrant colors and Nvidia G-Sync support into a responsive 1440p display.

DELL S2417DG Quad HD 24" LED Monitor

 

I really enjoy this monitor. Its details are crisp and colours are great!

The sound plug only supports headphones and not speakers. I would have liked internal speakers.

DELL S2417DG Quad HD 24 LED Monitor

 

144Hz amazing, price is low, quality of screen is good

viewing at an angle fades, making the ability to rotate the display 90deg pointless.
