When we reviewed this speedy, TN panel monitor, we were in awe with its impressive overclocked refresh rate of 155Hz and FreeSync from 40-155Hz. Our testing also revealed low input lag. The Dell S2719DGF is currently on our list of best gaming monitors as the top 144Hz display. 

And its build quality is as strong as its out-of-box color accuracy. In fact, we think its image is one of the best we've ever seen from a TN panel—so good, in fact, it can be mistaken for an IPS panel, which are known for their great color and welcoming viewing angles.

Portwise, you get one HDMI 2.0 and 1.4, one DisplayPort 1.2, four USB 3.0 ports and one headphone jack.

On the con side, the Dell S2719DGF has room for improvement where contrast is concerned. Uncalibrated and at max brightness settings, it hit 860.7:1 in our testing, despite it’s 1,000:1 listed specification. There is also no gamma adjustment.

However, if you’re looking for a 27-inch QHD gaming monitor with the speed to match your skills, the Dell S2719DGF is worth a look, especially at this price.
