The Dell S2716DGR is an excellent 1440p gaming monitor that comes with all the goodies such as G-Sync, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a discrete yet fully functional design. Build quality is superb and performance is fantastic so long as you keep expectations within TN technology’s limitations in vibrancy. The low input lag puts it right next to the Asus PG278QR whose main advantage lies in image quality and responsiveness, along with its gamer-specified design.
What pushes the Dell S2716DGR beyond its competitors is it regularly goes on sale on most retailers. At full price, this model sells for $599 which isn’t bad by today’s standards, but you can sometimes catch it for as low as $400. If you can get it at a discount, the Dell S2716DGR is an excellent value-oriented gaming monitor that will satisfy even the most discerning gamer.
Like all Dell monitors save for the Alienware variants, the Dell S2716DGR utilizes the trusty black and silver aesthetic which most prefer over black and red gaudiness. The face is almost bezel-free, but this model uses a dual stage bezel which still reveals a sliver of the panel border but is still mostly non-obstructive once the monitor is in use. At a glance, the monitor looks like it was meant for a studio or an office, hiding the fact that it is an extreme gaming display.
The rest of the chassis which comes in glossy black appears clean and sophisticated as well. Like most Dell monitors, the I/O connectors are neatly tucked under the indent on the lower part of the rear bulge. Since this is a G-Sync monitor, connectivity is limited to DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI for video inputs, although you get a USB with two slots on the side plus three more on the rear.
