Quality over Gadgetry
on 4 January 2017
Have had this for about three weeks over the Christmas holidays, so its seen a fair bit of use.
I've used it with a GTX780 TI and a GTX 1080 AG when it eventually showed up. Both managed to render 144fps at 2k, which does make motion smoother. Buying monitors are tough at this price. I picked this over a 4k monitor because 4k at anything like 144Hz is demo only in 2016 and likely to be very, very expensive even in late 2017.
I bought a Dell monitor because of the number of dead pixel reports for its competitors. I went for build quality and got it. No dead pixels and zero light bleed after 2-3 weeks so no replacement hassles. Others monitors have features like monitor gun sight overlays for no scoping in FPS games, mode setups and monitor chassis lighting, this has nothing like that. If the monitor could overlay a sight with a firmware upgrade, DELL, that would be worth something to me.
The static image is pretty good out of the box but not significantly better than my old HP 2310 IPS monitor. That said, IPS panels are supposed to be prettier at slower speeds so this was not be a surprise and its there isn't much in it. I might tweak the monitor setup knowing the factory defaults are ok. The viewing angle is irrelevant to me because its primarily games I play on this so I tend to be looking right at it rather than at 160 degrees off.
Didn't come cheap but I could have paid a lot more for similar or worse which is why anyone buys Dell.
Solid, sensible decision and I'm happy with it.
