Funny enough I went to my local BB to look at this exact monitor and noticed it was on sale. I've been between this one and another of Dells Ultra Sharps. The whole 144hz and gsync for the price was enticing me but the reason I hate my current monitor is because of color reproduction and overall blah image quality even though it was a highly regarded Asus for the sub 200 price. Even though this dell has been reviewed as having a really good TN panel in terms of color and what not, I was still rather unimpressed when I saw it face to face. Especially when I saw it next to some of the other IPS monitors, none of which were any notable models. So I passed for now. Most of the games with the exception of overwatch shouldnt benefit a whole lot from the extra hz.
Using one now. I think I have good one, but I do notice a slight amount of ghosting while scrolling on a white background. For $450 I can't really complain.
Here are some settings you can start with
There's a setting on the monitor itself, I forget what it's called, it's something that sounds like you would want to enable, but isn't as it causes the scrolling issues you're talking about. Next time I'm at my desktop I'll take a look to find that setting.
Heck yea! I got one of these for $500 from Microcenter a couple months ago and I love it, but the colors always bother me outside of games. Usually in game its not super noticeable but as soon as I'm back on the windows desktop it looks terrible next to my IPS (even though its a cheap HP ips).
Honestly though I'll take shit colors + gsync over amazing colors + no gsync any day of the week when it comes to gaming. Can't wait to try these settings when I get home, it def can't get any worse.
I can't believe how much Gsync monitors have come down in price. This looks like a great deal.
