Pls explain Dell's series monitors. Also, LF > good 1080p IPS

E Series: basic, standard consumer grade monitor. E for economy I guess? These have limited inputs (usually only VGA and DVI) and no adjustable stand. Some have TN panels, some newer ones have IPS panels.

S Series: S is for Studio, usually they are designed to have sleek looks, so thin bezels, edge to edge, glass, glossy panel, things like that. These usually have IPS panels.

P Series: P is for professional. These are all IPS panels, they are designed for businesses and offices in mind, with good ergonomic adjustable stand, DisplayPort and DVI inputs, though not sleek thin bezels or higher end features like daisy-chaining.

U is for UltraSharp, Dell's premium line. These are all IPS panels, and basically are a step up from the P series, adding features like daisy-chaining, more advanced color control in the OSD, more inputs, factory color calibration, though the specifics vary from model to model.

Dell's display division is business-oriented and they do not make any gaming monitors. There are no Dell monitors with G-SYNC or FreeSync at this time.

Response time is not a measure of lag/delay, that is called latency or input lag. Response time has nothing to do with that. Refer to the link in my signature.

My usual recommendation is the P2414H, it's a good all-around IPS monitor with an adjustable stand, DVI and DisplayPort input, almost zero latency, and good build quality.

im curious about dell's monitors, whats with the different series??

E, U, P, S.... are there more?

I browsed for some, and its really confusing.

 

and which series or specific model should i pick based on my conditions in playing games..

 

-IPS panel is a must

-under 300$

-1080p full HD

-less than 8ms lag? or delay?? is it?

 

I'm playing at:

-GTX 970

-intel i5 4460 (no OC)

 

I prefer the ff:

-about 24 inch display

-dell brand

-with display port

-g-sync enabled??

 

ORRR... should I just save up for g-sync monitors?

 

sorry... noob pc builder here. its my first time actually.

 

dell monitor counterparts suggestions are also encouraged.
Thanks guys! :D

 

PS.. when u suggest  a model, pls explain a bit why you chose that specific model

Just copy/paste or quote your post explaining all that Dell monitor stuff. I've long since forgotten it.

Edit: Glenbro is on point tonight.
