Dell 2716DGR vs HP Omen 27 Inch QHD 165Hz G-Sync

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Which of these monitors would use guys get? My main concern here are the picture quality and the viewing angles. I currently have the Dell 2716DG but the viewing angles are shoddy and the color isn't the best (even after calibration). Anyone used both and have an opinion?

Wouldn't waste money on G-sync

Would not have suggested a $500 TN panel for the most part, assuming you're going to sell your first monitor there?

 

Whats your budget/country?

I heard from a bunch of people that G-Sync is really nice to have. I got the Dell for about $330 (+$50 GeekSquad Protection). Budget is around $450 and I live in the US.

You already have a G-sync display though? Do you make use of the feature? Really that type of insurance is pretty useless.

A free-sync display with the same panel type is typically $100+ cheaper, screen tearing is less noticeable at 144hz anyways.

Both "144hz" IPS panels, free-sync one is $432, has a better stand than the EDG27S at ~$400

Well, the plan was to just return or sell this one and get a new one since I didn't like it. I'll take a look at the ones that you recommended, thank you!

What graphics card are you using?

If colors and viewing angle are an issue for you with the 2716DG, getting another TN monitor won't fix anything

If you want 1440p + 144Hz + IPS + Gsync, those displays start at $600

Drop Gsync and it gets much cheaper 

 


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

I've got a 1080Ti. And yeah, the issue I had was that the IPS ones were really expensive with G-Sync, which really sucked.
