Recenlty the 2515 (dell 25 inch monitor which is 1440p) has been running right around $310 on amazon. There is a new 2517 model but this is a pretty decent price for a decent monitor

The Dell S2716DG 1440p gsync monitor was on sale at $475 with 12% back from ebates a few days ago but I didn't jump on it. Been checking every day to see if it'll come back for Cyber Monday.

I ended up getting this to use as a desktop monitor for my office PC. 4k windows desktop for my 1070, and if I want to play games I can use 1440p if 4k doesn't cut it (my main living room gaming rig is powered by 1080 SLI on a 65" 4k TV, so office games on this will be limited to MMO's like Diablo 3 and older keyboard/mouse games). Price is cheap is enough to forgive whatever flaws it might have.

4K TVs have come down in price so much over the past two years. It seems that a 4K TV is not much more to produce than a 1080p TV. This is trickling down to monitors. 4K will become the new standard supplanting 1080p standard. I have an 27" LG 4K monitor. Windows looks great scaled at 150% and may be a better option than 1440p.

Just wanted to update on this. This monitor is complete shit, utter garbage. 1080p on my old monitor looks better than this at 4k, even after my calibration efforts.

Oh, and this particular model is one of those "Black Friday" only models, which should be illegal if you ask me. That's why you cannot return it, because it's an inferior product made specifically just for Black Friday so you think you're getting a deal. I expected better from newegg.

Going to fight tooth and nail to get a refund on this garbage.

This is the monitor I bought back in the Spring/Summer. I haven't had a lot of them to comparison or anything, but it seems really good to me. I keep it calibrated with a Colormunki display calibrator.

27 inch 1440p IPS Dell monitor, probably one newer model since then, 60 fps which doesn't bother me but might you

Did you use a credit card for your purchase? Check your benefits. I know Amex offers return protection for these exact situations.

Shrug. I liked mine so much, I bought a second one. Both of mine are still working fine (knock on wood), and look spectacular with 4K YouTube videos.

Maybe you need a new video card to full take advantage?

Wait, you're using an NV card? I was reading a Newegg review, that this display looks like crap when hooked up to an NV Pascal card, for some reason. Was that your review, LOL?

With AMD video cards, mine looks great! I wish that they were still available. I feel like I got a steal! Not just one, but two 40" 4K UHD TVs, for around $420.
