Dell 27" QHD 165hz IPS Gaming Monitor S2721DGF $710.66 Delivered @ Dell Australia


Edit: LiMaa has managed to negotiate a deal with dell for this monitor that will bring it down to $510 that will go live on 5pm AEST but its only 500 units so be fast

First time posting so be gentle.

Far from the best price but the monitor has finally returned to the Dell store after you all bought so many that it's been unavailable in Australia for near on 2 months. preferred it over the famous LG 27GL850 which is going for around $750-$800 so it could still be considered a bargain. Do bear in mind that some individuals have reported that Dell may have another deal for this particular monitor planned for mid-October which would be similar to the previous deal that brought it down to nearly $500 after coupons.

          • @F-22: I got mine for $422.93 stacking the coupons plus using another one off voucher too ;)

              @Sammyboy: So you're even more confused than everyone else, still up voting this as a deal even though you paid even less than I thought, makes sense…

              • +1

                @F-22: The current RRP on Dell's website is $899. Any previous RRP is irrelevant. The bargain should be considered based on the current RRP, not what it was previously. Dell may have decided to set it at $899 for now. The sale price of the current RRP with coupons is $710.66. That is still considered a discount and a bargain. There is no guarantee that Dell will drop the RRP. We have a member who is good buddies with a rep who is getting everyone's hopes up but can't guarantee anything. Well done to that person for getting another 450 units of the cheaper 27". It's up to you to hedge your bets. Just because its not on sale at the previous $500 doesn't mean it isn't a bargain at its sale price now. Its just not as good of a bargain. Personally at $710 I wouldn't buy it and would wait until either Singles Day, Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales and see what is offered. So there is no confusion on my part.

                  @Sammyboy: If it was any other vendor you may have a case but Ive been following Dell deals forever and they are the most predictable and regular with sales. Once you see a price there's a very good chance you will see it again. The confusion part is at the end of your last comment you said you wouldn't buy it at the price yet you up voted it as a good price. Can you see how that seems strange?

                  • @F-22: If you need a QHD IPS 27" screen with all the extra features absolutely right now, its a good price compared to any equivalent screen on the market at the moment. If the RRP drops or there is a cheaper advertised price you could claim the price guarantee on your credit card.

                    • @Sammyboy: Trust me, i've claimed more on my credit card price protection than anyone i know of, very familiar with the process. Still doens't make this a baragin. Those affliate codes are almost permantly available, i know because i've used them almost every time ive made a Dell purchase. I'm not arguing that it's a bad monitor or if you need a monitor not to buy one.

                    • @Sammyboy: Be careful with this, Allianz, who offer this coverage on ANZ credit cards does not cover online purchases:

                      What we excludeWe do not cover items that you purchase via the internet or that are only advertised by digital medium.

                      • @mynamewahhhwahh: Really? I did it with my Burton snowboard. Have ANZ travel rewards and claimed price difference with an online purchase. Got the difference no fuss.

                      • @mynamewahhhwahh: I use 28 degrees and the deal is almost too good to be true. 1 year to claim, can be from different store, can claim multiple times, up to 1k per item.

  • I just asked for a replacement as I have a bright pixel in the middle of my screen and they said they had no ETA on when i would receive the replacement? Is that bullshit according to this 10 day estimated delivery?

  • +2

    Would this be a suitable option for the PS5?

    • Doubt 4K will look very good on a 2K monitor.

  • How is Dell's exchange/return policy?

    I bought a 27GL850 from Amazon recently and everything is great after calibrating even minimal BLB, but top left hand and right corner is noticeably darker like it's a slight vignette effect (very slight) but it's annoying.

    • Apparently very good, this monitor comes with a 3yr premium panel guarantee so Dell will cover most things.

      In the original deal thread there are a few images of the BLB/IPS glow, mine both have it but its minimal in person.

  • As someone who received their order from the last deal, what's the best way to test your monitor out for any issues + general settings? I'm coming from a 1080p 60hz monitor so it already looks insane out of the box. Just wondering if there are any particular things I should be looking out for/testing fps etc?

    • +9

      A) Dead Pixel Test:

      Some people reported issue with 60Hz on this screen as the second last row of the pixels appear greyish or transparent like (it could be a minor issue for PS4, Android boxes and RPi 4, I think XBox1 supports 1440p/120Hz mode - not sure, haven't got around to test it). Changing it to 120 to 165 eliminates the issue for most people. Though there is one report indicating it helps but doesn't fully eliminate it. You buy this monitor for high refresh rate so you would be using > 120Hz most of the time anyway.

      B) IPS Glow, Backlight bleed Test:

      Please have realistic expectation as there is IPS glow on pretty much all IPS screens.

      While people are quite happy based on the RTings review, if you take a more pedantic view, the not as good viewing angles (esp. vertical - compared to the LG) as well as looking at the backlight uniformity etc…, all those little bits and pieces will affect your overall perception of the IPS glow, especially when viewed just a bit slightly off angle (vertically and/or horizontally).

      Make sure you are aware and are fine with some degree of IPS glow. If you are after a pure black full screen on an IPS panel when the room is dark, you will be disappointed.

      C) Watch your favourite movies, youTube videos. Open documents and do some quick photo editing. Try as many device(s) on the screen as possible - if applicable.

      Honestly, the sharpness of the screen and the overall colour is above average for 27 inch 1440p. Text and video are both quite pleasant. Yes, full screen to close to full screen black or white is going to show IPS' weakness and does make you realise nothing is perfect and there is a reason this monitor is not a crazy expensive IPS.

      • Thank you for the detailed response! Will check those out. Is there any particular settings I need to configure the monitor? I've got no idea what it should be or anything. I did download an ICC profile from YouTuber that was mentioned in the other deal but didn't really notice anything tbh.

        • +1

          You need to adjust it to your likings, you might want to download the software. Despite the back joystick is kinda decent for adjusting settings, it is still a bit unpleasant.

          Other than colours, you might want to think about USB ports power settings, whether you want to turn them off when the monitor is in sleep mode. Turning them on allows you to charge your phones when the laptop or PC is off. The other one is the back blue LED (on or off).

  • Any idea on how good this one will be for budget monitor for normal office work. No Gaming, No editing?

    • +1

      You could probably drop down to a cheapo normal 1080p display. That seems to be more for creatives that need colour accuracy but it is always nice to have better colours so really your choice.

      • The advertising is very tempting. Making me feel I should get this one as a budget Monitor.

    • It depends on what you are after. There are 27 inch 1080p IPS monitors in the low $200 range (< $250). However, none of them has height adjustable stand, no built in USB hub / ports.

      You need to decide yourself.

    • I have a 24 inch 16:10 monitor. Good for office work and the pixel density is fine at 1200p. Price is good. It is basically the height of a 27 inch 16:9.

      If I had to buy another monitor I would be going for 16:10 in 30 inch 2560x1600, but that would cost 2x what this does.

      • That would be the exact resolution of what macbook has but not sure how good it will look when compare to macbook's screen.

  • +1

    I am looking to get another one on the next sale. It doesn't even have to match the previous one, around the $600 mark delivered and I would purchase again. This is too high for me though.

    • Agree, in the same boat.

  • to the people that have recieved their monitor have you got your $60 voucher from dell?

    • +1

      I wasn't even aware there was meant to be a $60 voucher

  • +1

    Buyer beware! mine arrived two days ago. Average build quality and backlight bleed is horrific.

    Low review rating is not just due to time delays. Many people reporting bad backlight bleed.

    Would not recommend.

  • How does this compare this to the below?

    • Aren't they both S2721DGF?

      Well, the difference is the link you provide is a better deal with the "LIMAAA350OCT" coupon instead of AUAFFILIATES15%OFF.

  • Arrived today. Now waiting on the new Dell G7 to pair them up!

  • Website is showing $639.20 now, and you can apply the SUPER7 code to get it to $594.
