They lost me at the bolded part: "27-inch LED back-lit LCD display with QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution delivers a viewing experience that's perfect for gamers and demanding professionals who do detailed work like editing photos and videos

Yeah no one is going to be using a TN panelled monitor for that.

While this is a good monitor, there is some misleading advertising going on here. With the following display ports, 1 x DisplayPort 1.2; 1 x HDMI, this monitor WILL NOT run with 1440p resolution with a 144Hz refresh rate and G-sync. It would need HDMI 2.0 for this. This monitor can do the following with HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2 (which is why it's still not bad for $400): 1080p resolution + 144 Hz refresh + G-Sync OR 1440p resolution + 60Hz refresh + No G-Sync

Bought this a while back for my wife since it’s very similar to the old PG278Q ROG Swift original which also had a TN panel but I remember that TN panel had amazing colours and good viewing angles so took a chance on a great deal for this one.

It is probably the best looking TN panel on the planet (assuming they all have the same panel). She absolutely loves hers and the colours pop with extremely vibrant constrast.

I have a ROG Swift PG348Q 3440x1440 IPS and the colours on this Dell pop way more.

Easily would recommend this monitor at this price which is only a touch higher than what we paid. I would call this a hot or at the very least warm deal.

OP buddy, let's keep our composure.

Now we're left guessing as to your panel and value for dollar.

Stand tall to the up and downvotes from the crowd. Sticks and stones.

I see you've reverted back to the content. Thank you.

I'm still using the same model and I love it. Yes, it's a TN, but unless you're viewing your monitor from the side it's not really a big deal.

You also get the advantages of TN including pretty much no input lag, no ghosting (like a VA), and way less light bleed than a IPS.

Also, the displayport will absolutely give you 1440p at 144hz and GSync enabled. It's not pushing 4K.

Jokes aside, people bringing up the cons that are relevant to a TN panel are perfectly valid, no need to throw a fit. VA, IPS, and TN panels all have their pros and cons.
Ayy sorry wasnt trying to throw a fit lmao, I was trying to delete it and so i just took everything off and put a stupid sentence lmao but then when I selected Delete this post it said i cant so iput it back to normal.

Also I aint simpin for a TN panel, I have an IPS panel I just thought it was a decent deal. Its just crazy how SO MANY PEOPLE ON RFD SIMP FOR IPS.

I have this monitor, paid like $400+ while back when it was still fresh.
now $299 should be the regular price, not refurb/open box price.

as for the monitor, this perfectly fine for gaming and browsing RFD, which is what most people use their computers for.
would buy if price is right.

Exactly. People on RFD are so overdramatic about any other panel other than IPS. Guess now I know now to ever post anything other than IPS.

I have this exact model hooked up to my 1070 through Displayport since a few years and it displays 1440p @ 144hz. It is stunning as far fluidity is concerned. It looks like shit for watching movies, no surprise there, but daily browsing is alright and playing shooters is glorious. Overwatch with all its popping colours is flawless.

I paid around 600$ and it was a good deal from the 979$ or something msrp, for 300$ I upvoted.

I have one. It's great. No complaints and TN panel hasn't bothered me one bit FWIW.

I got it today and will return it. The monitor was more looking like used. Does not support 144hz with HDMI. I was planning to use Xbox Series X. Didn't know anything about the DP port.

I've had this monitor for over a year. Yes its a TN panel, and should be avoided if you are doing graphics etc..

However the monitor is incredible, you can tweak the colors to look good. I do not regret the purchase at all.

There's a place and time for each type of monitor. Whether it be TN, VA or IPS. Likewise, 1080/1440/4k all have different use cases. The typical RFD mentality is that anything that isn't IPS and 1440p+ (when 27" or greater) is bad.

TN is better if you like to compete in online games. TN gives the best response time, and typically ghosts the least, albeit at a sacrifice of the vibrancy of IPS.
