        Godspeed, I hope we can be victorious in our bargain hunting endeavour

        • I was thinking of getting this but I felt like I have always wanted to own an ultra wide monitor.
          I think I'm going for Xiaomi instead.

          • @squall3031: I'm thinking of holding onto my old ass DVI only monitor for another few years to see if we get some decent HDR options.

      • Challenge accepted!

  • Here we go again

  • Is the asus tuf vg27aq monitor better since it has HDR?

    • +4

      This has HDR400 whereas the Asus is HDR10.

      • Not too sure.dont see it on the specs.

      • Keeping in mind that the HDR on this monitor isn't great, and it looks better when it's off imo.

      • +4

        HDR400 and HDR10 practically same thing. The 400 just meas it is HDR at 400nits brightness

        • +2

          Thanks for the heads up, I just thought the higher the number, the better. Turns out I'm comparing Apples to Bread.

          Would I be correct in stating that HDR10 describes a metadata format, and HDR400 describes the display's capabilities?

          Research would also suggest that HDR400 isn't really bright enough to notice anyway.

          I do have one of these screens and agree with @Wicko. I think it looks better off, as well.

          • +2

            @wellzi: HDR10 just means it can accept an HDR 10-bit signal. HDR400 is a VESA specification which requires monitors to have a colour gamut of 100% sRGB (BT.709) and 400 nits peak brightness in HDR mode. HDR600 onwards require local dimming to meet minimum contrast ratio requirements, and also need at least 90% DCI-P3 gamut. The X00 means peak brightness.

            • +2

              @twister292: Legend, thank you for the heads up! Much appreciated.

    • +1

      This monitor is Vesa DisplayHDR 400 and 400nits and $~150 cheaper than the Asus, IMO it's a better buy

      • Oh nice. This comes out way cheaper than Asus with this deal too. Win!

    • I just realised I also have a VG278AQ in my household (though not my monitor). The VG278AQ was far lighter than the S2721DGF, and I feel the Dell had better build quality in particular aspects. The Asus also has a screw on monitor stand, instead of Dell's clip on. Lastly, the Asus has an external power brick (from memory), so depending on what you prefer I guess this could be a deciding factor.

    • i had the vg27aq for less than a month before I sold it and replace with the s2721dgf - you can see the ghosting quite clearly when you play 60 fps games. performance at 144hz/100+fps looked ok to me though.

  • +1

    What's better for casual gaming (no esports), this or the 34" Xiaomi?

    • +1

      It depends on you. 34 inch is great, you have beautiful viewing angles etc. 27 inch is a nice size, and great for multi monitor productivity set-ups.

      Both are good options gaming just depends on how you want your set up to look like.

    • +1

      Tbh the 4k 60fps version of this might be better. Older games look a lot sharper and most console games are 4k now (ps5 doesn't even support 2k).

      Black friday will have some cheap deals all round too

      • +15

        2K 144fps beats 4K 60fps for me.

        • -4

          Yeah fair enough. I think for a lot of people it won't be better than 4k though unless your playing competitive shooters in a high ranked setting etc or anything more casual it isn't really required. It does make things look smoother for sure in movement, but 4k resolution also makes things look nicer all around.

          I have both and kinda wish I went with just 4k cos I'm not really competitive in my gaming.

          • +1

            @RI4V4N: Someone gaming casually might not have the PC to drive 4K to its full potential though. Would you take 4K at medium/low settings instead of 1440p at 100+ fps?

          • +1

            @RI4V4N: The fluidity of motion at higher refresh is something that's often understated. I can't comment on the appeal of 4K at smaller screen sizes like 32" though because I haven't tried it.

            I don't game competitively but even 90Hz looks so much nicer than 60Hz.

    • I bought 27" monitor and after seeing 34", I feel regret that I didn't go with 34"

  • +1

    S3220DGF As well?

  • Oh my gosh do I pull the trigger? the 1.5 Month delivery time though is a worry.

    • +1

      It goes quickly - I was lucky enough to get one of these August 2nd and it arrived 22nd September so nearly an 8 week wait - well worth it!

    • i hope the warranty does not start ticking the moment you purchase.

  • When's this go live?

    Will Dell price match if I ordered over 30 days ago but it's yet to be shipped?

    • +2

      Ask them. If they bitch cancel and re order..? :)

      • Haha I like the idea, only issue is stock with this monitor and I want to hold my priority in the que.

        According to Dell they expect 304 units due on or before 24/11/20, most of which are already reserved

  • +1

    Just remember ps5 doesn't support 2k.

    • Will the PS5 at least output to the display in 1080p?

      • No idea info seems all over the place

        • +1

          It is obvious PS5 supports 1080p.

          Sure, series X does support 2K, but it is like XBox One X, where most games supersampled down from 4K. Through back compat, you are looking at 2K/60fps (FSAA down from 4K if you like). Problem is, this monitor's 60Hz implementation isn't 100% bug free (there seems to be a faint line on the second last row of pixels at 60Hz).

          2K is more a PC thing. Would be good if more XBox One X/Series X games offer native 2K/120Hz support.

    • oh really? i thought hdmi 2.1 can support 4K at 120Hz or 8K at 60Hz? i believe this is equivalent to our PC's next-gen GPU in RX3000 & RX6000 series.

      • Technically, PS5 can support 2K/120Hz, but Sony is not enabling that mode. The main reason is Sony doesn't sell any TV that's 2K in resolution.

        So there is no incentive. Also, how many console reviews talk about 2K performance? With XBox One X using 4K FSAA down to 2K for most games, when using 2K, you are not gaining any higher fps. It is very unlikely existing games would be patched to enable native 2K performance mode (as that requires effect to optimise every game for that extra mode). New games might be better as series S is meant to support 2K. Unfortunately, with series S using XBox One S code path in back compat mode, it doesn't benefit much from 2K (as it cannot access XBox One X's 4K code path).

        However, if you intend to use this monitor for console gaming, XBox series is better suited (since you don't need to use 1080p interpolation mode on the monitor).

        • so are you saying that the super modern GPU inside the next-gen consoles are being dumbed down? if this is true, does this mean that PC's next-gen GPUs will exceeds the "dumbed down" console's GPU in term of performance? in other words, the previous-gen GPUs (2070 Super / 5700XT) are on par with PS5 and X Box One X?

          • +1

            @DisabledUser370554: No, it is more about the number of modes consoles support and will support per game. Unlike PC, consoles tend to support 1 to 2 modes (resolution and performance modes) per game. It looks like native 4K (for resolution) and dynamic 4K (for performance) is the plan for next gen consoles. 4K/120 support sounds better than 2K/120. Sony is not bothering with 2K support. Microsoft is mostly using 4K FSAA to 2K (rather than having game developers doing an extra 2K mode).

            XBox Series X is roughly a slightly underclocked RX 6800 with 4 CUs removed / disabled. PS5, without knowing AMD's RX 6700 series offering, it is probably around RX 6700 / 6700XT. PS5 is better than 5700XT.

            The reasons for getting consoles is that you don't want to do all those tweaking (and maybe modding). Given this monitor supports 144 and 165Hz (via DisplayPort), it is really best suited for PC gaming. We are seeing nVidia GPUs providing more improvement in 4K than 2K this time around.

            Also, 4K/60Hz 27 inch displays are selling at a lower price than 2K/144-165Hz 27 inch displays.

            • @netsurfer: Better off going with 32"+ for 4k though, the general consensus is 27" is too small

              • @MiscOzB: It's more about 27 inch 2K gaming monitors (120, 144, 165) currently cost more than27 inch 4K/60 monitors. If using consoles is a factor, then 4K might be a better option (assuming you are fine with resolution scaling in Windows 10, MacOS). Series X currently can only rely on Xbox One X code path, that means 60fps for 1440p. Sure, 4K FSAA on 2K is nifty, but you are essentially getting really only 60fps at 2K, even though the hardware is capable of 120fps (if the games render natively at 2K).

                The best case scenario is developers really embrace 1440p for console and create 2 additional modes for Series X and Series S. Honestly, that's asking a lot. They are more likely to opt for dynamic 4K/120 because with 4K TVs becoming the new norm and 4K/120Hz could entice people buy higher end TVs.

                For PC gaming, then 2K high framerate could be more attractive. A good thing about this monitor is that HDCP 2.2 is supported so you can play 4K UHD blu-ray movie discs.

    • Sorry for being inactive lately, I'm back, cyberpunk needed me to redo some voice lines. *giggles

  • Does it have speakers?

    • +1

      It does not.

      It does have an Audio line-out port where you can plug speakers into it to receive HDMI audio etc but you gotta provide those speakers

  • Bought one of these at last deal - flickering from day 2 and dead by day 7. Its now day 16 and still waiting for 'approval' for replacement to be sent out.

    I haven't bought anything dell in years and now i remember why.

    • Interesting. I have a 2015 Ultrasharp and it hasn't missed a beat with lots of daily usage. Either the quality has declined or maybe I got lucky!

      • Have a u2715h and also have no issues. Maybe they have higher quality control for that line of monitors.

    • I purchased a 25 alienware monitor recently and had flickering also. They sent a replacement the next day but it also flickered.

      Can't fault their customer support but I've gone with a different monitor now as tempting as this one looks

  • Now this is more like a 27" of 2020, not like that other VA 1080p.

  • Dell takes forever to ship…

    • +4

      mine arrived in 2-3 days…

      • I ordered mine at 7am on a Thursday and it arrived in Melbourne from Sydney the next day.

    • I was surprisede that it took several days for me

    • The last time I purchased this monitor, it took less than 5 business days to appear at my door step. However when my wife purchased an Alienware laptop, it took close to 3 weeks as it had to be assembled in Malaysia.

  • +3

    Just a heads up, there are about a dozen of of us still waiting for delivery from the last time this model came up on OzBargain at the end of October.

    Current ETA is 15/12/2020. I doubt new orders would be fulfilled before those outstanding ones are…

    • +5

      So that is almost a 3-month wait. Dell should just say preorders on their website then.

  • I was looking at getting one of these because the response time is a bit better than my existing monitor but just noticed how god awful the contrast ratio is, beware of that any prospective buyers.

    • +1

      I think most ips monitors is right around that 1000ish : 1 contrast ratio

      • I have a PG279Q currently and it's around 1300:1, this Dell monitor was tested at 880:1 in SDR which is low even by IPS standards. It reaches almost 1000 in HDR mode however you'd be unlikely to use HDR given it's only HDR400 which usually looks worse than SDR.

        • Still better than LG 27GL850 contrast at least.

          • @MiscOzB: Barely, but yes. They both use the same panel, just somehow Dell have calibrated it better than LG which is odd considering LG make the panel.

  • Just a note that the Click Frenzy start time is advertised wrongly on the website, it starts at 7pm AEDST (Daylight Savings time) not AEST (Aus Eastern Standard Time) as advertised.

  • Anyone know if the site-wide 25% is coming back again? Need to get a monitor arm.

    • +2

      Mate look into Bayou F80, it's great!

      • will it fit? do you have one paired with the dell recessed vesa mounting holes?

        • Have the Bayou F100 and the monitor mounted for about 2 months now.

          The screws that came with the monitor weren't long enough to latch on securely. used the longer screws that came with the mount and it worked.

      • Thanks. I do have a vision mount that I currently use with productivity monitor that looks similar to this.

    Just in case no one realised, sale is already up on the website
