I'm confused between Dell S2240M and Dell S2240L.
Please help me!
Currently I have a CRT.
I'm going to upgrade my PC soon but budget really tight.
Dell S2240M cost in my country locally near Rs.8600/- and S2240L Rs.8800/-.
Dell not providing any DVI or HDMI cable with them only VGA.
Is VGA cable work fine @1920x1080 ?
Dell monitor don't have any speaker so waht the use of HDMI ?
Any future advantage over DVI ?
Price difference only R.200(near US $4)
Chinese DVI or HDMI cable gonna cost about Rs.200/- extra.
I tried to find other IPS panel at budget but sadly nothing good available.
LG IPS225V out of stock totally and AOC i2267Fh(14ms G2G) not launched in my country(India) yet.
So,which should I do now ?
My next upgrade will be like as follows:
4GB 1333Hz DDR3 RAM
Nvidia GT640/ATI HD7750
Thought my video card cheap but remember my main priority is gaming.
So,input lag and response time is matter.
But,I don't want TN panel.
Now when DVI and HDMI doesn't and Del don't bother to provide any cable except VGA.
Do u thing I think I should got for Dell S2240L and bought a cheap chinese HDMI cable.
Cost of Dell OEM HDMI gonna near Rs.1K-1.5(US $20-25).
Now situation like follows:
Dell S2240M+ Cheap DVI cable @8700/-
Dell S2240L+Cheap HDMI cable @9000/-
Dell S2240L+Dell OEM HDMI cable @10000/-
Which option is best now ?
Another nub question.
If I use sound from video card(HDMI port) will that make any impact on gaming performance ?
Motherboard has 5.1 Channel audio.
I have 2 channel speaker(2 speakers+woofer) with only single 3.5mm jack.
BTW,video card sound quality better than normal entry level motherboard audio ?
HDMI is becoming standard these days.
So,I guess I should go for Dell S2240L and price difference is very small.
Strange thing is HDMI version is showing cheaper in Dell US site.
Where DVI is cheaper in my country.
One more nub question.
My video card is not powerful to run game @1080p 60Hz.
So I will run game @1600x900 75Hz.
Heard HDMI only support up to 60Hz and DVI more ?
Is it true ?
This could be main big issue for me.
And can I connect my STB HDMI to dell monitor HDMI input(only picture not sound) ?
I just bought Dell S2240L+cable+power cable total 9500/-.
Don't know why Dell don't provide DVI/HDMI and even a power cord too ?
Thought Dell is a reputed brand.
Monitor like a mirror and back light bleed at both bottom.
What can I expect at that price after all.
But,I think monitor must need calibration.
Image is bluish.
Color is not accurate compare to my old 17" CRT.
Tried to find ICC profile and Calibration Settings at tftcentral and Google it.
Did not get any review.
So,I can't change setting.
BTW,saw by default Phase=27 ( under 'display' monitor OSD ).
Other setting is set to 50 by default.
Do I have to change that to 50 too ?
I don't have any CD/DVD ROM drive.
So,I'm unable ti install drivers from Dell CD.
So,I tried dell site and see only a file 300KB available.
I'm not sure I chose the right link.
Can I use monitor without driver ?
Sorry for asking too many nub question.
