Dell S2417DG gaming monitor review


The Dell S2417DG is a fast, gorgeous gaming monitor, especially after some tweaks.

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...

The S2417DG is fast, with support for refresh rates 144Hz and higher as well as Nvidia G-Sync, ULMB and 3D Vision.

Display quality is typical of TN panels -- kind of meh -- and its a little too expensive at Dell's official price.

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...

The Dell S2417DG is a good 1440p gaming monitor with G-Sync variable refresh rate support. It has a TN panel with mediocre picture quality due to the poor native contrast ratio so blacks appear gray in a dark room, and the image also rapidly loses...

Fast 144Hz refresh rate ; Fast motion is clear due to quick response time ; Supports G-Sync Variable Refresh Rate

Image looks very washed out at an angle ; Blacks are gray and cloudy

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 24 S-series gaming monitor (S2417DG) review: Solid G-Sync at a good price -- if you shop around a little


Dell's S2417DG budget gaming monitor delivers on high refresh rates and Nvidia features.

The S2417DG is fast, with support for refresh rates 144Hz and higher as well as Nvidia G-Sync, ULMB and 3D Vision.

Display quality is typical of TN panels -- kind of meh -- and its a little too expensive at Dell's official price.

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

The best


Simply the best monitor I've ever purchased. The colours are fantastic and everything looks crisp. Price may turn some off but for the included features you'd be hard-pressed to find another monitor like this; G-Sync, 165Hz OC, 1440p it's all amazing....

Amazing bit of kit


If you're a gamer and you're using a G-sync enabled graphics card, plus can and want to hit framerates of 144 and above (yes, and above due to some overclocking stuff!) this is a sweet monitor. Improved my gameplay with experience, especially first...
