Dell S2417DG Review

G-sync-compatible monitors tend to be expensive — the cheap ones are predominantly old or refurbished — so considering it’s quality, it’s pretty nice to have some budget options like the S2417DG G-Sync Monitor.

Like most inexpensive, fast gaming monitors, it uses a Twisted Nematic panel, a technology which enables fast response times and high refresh rates, but has poor color and visibility characteristics.

The display measures at only about 96 percent sRGB with a typical contrast of about 600:1 and a brightness of 356 nits, which is pretty normal for this type of monitor.

You can set the monitor’s refresh rate as high as 144Hz or up to 165Hz if you enable the overclocking, which you can tweak in 5Hz increments to fine-tune for any flickering you might perceive.

The S2417DG appears to be bezel-free when the powerís off, but there is a 6mm frame around the image at the top and sides and a wider 15mm strip at the bottom. The monitor has the thinnest bezels in the market, making the Dell an ideal candidate for multi-screen setups. The anti-glare layer has a 3H hardness rating and maintains a tight air gap for high clarity and zero grain or softness. Light rejection is excellent, and you can set this panel up just about anywhere.

The Dell 24 offers your two essential display inputs: HDMI and DisplayPort (the latter of which you’ll need in order to utilize G-Sync). Beyond that, it has two USB 3.0 ports and a USB 3.0 Type-B port in the back, along with two more USB 3.0 ports as well as a headphone jack conveniently located on the left panel.

With a rich, 24-inch, 2560 x 1440 screen and up to a 165-Hz refresh rate, this monitor is vibrant, smooth and generally a joy to play games on.

If you’re looking for a 2560 x 1440 monitor, the Dell S2417DG should be at the very top of your list. For an affordable price, you’re getting a sharp and responsive 1440p display complete with useful game modes and Nvidia G-Sync support. It’s not easy to find 24-inch monitors at this resolution, which makes the Dell 24 one of the best G-Sync monitors in the market.
