Dell QHD Monitor or LG 1080p monitor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone I am having trouble deciding on which monitor to use as my main monitor. I don't really understand displays that well so I was hoping someone here can help me out.

 

So I currently use a LG 24MP60VQ 24' 1080P (https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-24MP60VQ-P-led-monitor) as my main monitor, and it has served me very well and seems like a overall good monitor. However, I just got an older Dell U2711 Ultrasharp 2560x1440 (https://www.dell.com/ae/business/p/dell-u2711/pd) for free from a friend.

 

I plugged in the Dell using HDMI and the quality seemed pretty bad compared to my LG, but I just assumed it was because the HDMI doesn't support the 2560x1440 on the Dell so I ordered a display port cable instead to hook that up to the dell so I can see how good it really is. So my question is, is the Dell monitor even better? Like based on looking at the specs, is one monitor better than the other? I just want to know so I don't get my hopes up before the cable comes lol.

That Dell is a decade old. My old HP monitor looks like shit compared to a 1years old LG monitor, both are IPS just like yours.

the u2711 is a good monitor, but since it's a decade old it might be on its last legs, hdmi can run 1440p/60hz just fine, see if it's not just a brightness/contrast problem on the OSD since some ppl do 0% brightness.
