RTings doesn't list any Dell 1440p 144Hz monitor among their picks, not even among the 'Notable Mentions'. Here's their article

The 7 Best 1440p 144Hz Monitors - Fall 2020, updated Oct. 9, 2020


I guess you should could go the other way around: first you find out the model id of that awesome 1440p 144Hz Dell monitor you want and then you look where it's on sale.

For the time being, it seems that peeps will have to consider other manufacturers/brands.

Dell is no longer private. They are back on the NYSE and traded publicly.

I want to upgrade from a 23" monitor to a 27" primarily for work and some occasional photo editing. Dell has some 27" IPS monitors for under $200 at 1080p. Is it worth spending double for a 4K monitor? I don't want to go bigger but compromise picture quality with lower pixel density. In other words, I don't want to have to sit further from the 27" monitor since that would defeat the purpose of upgrading.

Even so, I have not seen any good deals from Dell since mid / end of 2018. All their so call sales are not worth browsing.

So assuming the PSU of the desktop is 360W and non replaceable, what does that mean? The system won't be able to do gaming at all?

I just upgraded from a 23" 1080p 60Hz to a 27" 1440p 144Hz (Dell SR2716DGR from Kijiji)

and I have LOVED the upgrade.

- The increased refresh rate has been significantly noticeable even with scrolling through websites and tracking your mouse.
Gaming is much smoother, even when I needed to scale down the resolution to 1080p.
- The pixel density from the 23" 1080p to the 27" 1440p increased slightly (95 pixels per inch vs 108 pixels per inch) and this gives a much easier screen to look at.
I was seriously thinking about a 4K screen, but decided to get a higher refresh rate.
With my 1440p, I haven't needed to adjust my desk at all (if anything I sit closer to it now unintentionally)

I'd highly recommend both a higher refresh rate, and a higher resolution. And then ... I'd recommend a video card upgrade lol


Getting a 4k 144hz is close to $1000 ... so you may need to pick what is more important to you if you want both on a budget.

Of note: my panel isn't an IPS, but with the help of Reddit, you can tweak your graphics settings to make the colours look great

No, you can game as it has a 1660ti which is considered a decent mid range card, BUT don't expect to upgrade the video card. The 1660ti will be fine for most titles at 1080p and at least mid range in game quality settings.

As I suspected, it was a pricing error on the $999.99 XPS i7-10700 deal. If you add to cart, it's now $1449.99.

The 360w PSU is what stopped me from getting this last night, but who knows if they would have honoured the priced anyways.

You did well to stick with a 1440p 27". This is also what I have (AOC Agon) and when I'll go to 4k (if ever) it will be on a 32" or whatever. Reason is 4k on a 27" = small text. And these days I don't game much...

That being said, computers are expansive these days. I'm looking to replace my almost 4 years old xps for one with a similar price (1900$+tx) and I'll get something barely better...

Should people just skip 1440p and go straight to 4K now? I feel like 1440p is like 720p now.

It's like anything else it depends on your use.

If you want to primarily game then its 1440p + 144hz / high refresh rate.

If you want productivity/normal usage then get a 4k panel + 60hz refresh rate.

Also if you use a Mac I've read that it doesn't scale nicely to 1440p displays, so that's another potential issue. Personally I'd rather use a 4k screen at 200% zoom for super crisp pixels, vs a 1440p screen, but I don't play games on mine so the high refresh rate is not a deciding factor.

Looks like the price is now $1,599 and they've updated the picture to the white tower even. But the ambiguous PSU details remain

Re: the XPS 13, is there now way to configure the sale model with increased RAM, we're limited to the 8GB option? That's a dealbreaker for me.
