How long does it take to get your ebates updated?
If you mean, "how long it takes for you to get your cashback?", it can take from a few hours to a few days

When you say colour is awful, is that compared to an ips panel or other TN panels

Can attest to this monitor being great. Yes the colours look terrible when you compare it to an IPS (which I actually have my old Dell U2412m sitting right beside it) but its got amazing features to back up the lack in colours. I will never go back from 144Hz for gaming.

Thanks.

How has the monitor been so far? Upon doing some researching some people claim to have issues with 'color banding' and 'pixel inversion'... but I do understand that the minority of people who have problems often have the largest voices on the internet.
It seems lot of people have issues with color banding with R.04 (latest rev). Me and couple other in reddit monitor maybe got lucky and did not have any problems with it. Decent/Correct calibration is a must for this monitor. Havent heard anybody with pixel inversion.

Is there something like this but with IPS?

Also the reviews seem to have issues with this one.
For a 27inch with same specs (1440p, gsync and 144 refresh hz), your looking at around 800+ for IPS panel. Asus PG279Q & Acer predator xb-something are the two one with IPS

How this good for FPS(Overwatch/CSGO ) and Dota?

I have a 27" IPS Samsung 60hz monitor that's due for replacement(found 1 dead pixel after 4 years of using it) and still using Radeon 7700 series video card(planning to upgrade SOON).

It's amazing for overwatch, pointless for dota, but nice nonetheless. Day to day desktop usage is amazing though. You'll never go back to 60hz after using 144hz.

There's also the Asus mg279q which is IPS with freesync. Regularly cheaper if you're ok with refurb.

If you had to choose one for gaming, would you go for gsync or IPS?

they must have their 2017 model coming soon like the 24" did...nice price. the pixels are a little better on the 24" because they are denser packed. but both are nice monitors.

For those that get it, it actually has great colors once you customize them! Here's my settings. I can't remember exactly where I found them so I uploaded and just checked.

ICC profile I use: http://www.filedropper.com/dells2716dg
Monitor settings: 43% brightness, 75% contrast, custom color (100% R / 98% G / 98% B).

I have banding on mine, but I haven't really calibrated it yet, though I don't have my hopes up since the monitor doesn't have athe colour granularity of a IPS. Otherwise a really nice monitor
