Dell’s 27-Inch QHD Gaming Monitor
The bigger of the pair is also the fastest with a 155Hz overclocked refresh rate and a 1 millisecond response time. The S2719DGF also supports FreeSync from 40-144Hz.
The monitor offers three gaming profiles, as well as three factory preset modes, one of which is laser-targeted at playing games.
It also boasts three-sided thin bezels (barring the bottom bezel) that Dell is so confident in that it encourages you to go ahead and bring additional monitors into your gaming setup. The monitor comes in what Dell calls Recon Blue, a deep dark shade, but you’ll definitely notice a hint of blue in the logo at the bottom.
Dell’s 24-Inch FHD Gaming Monitor
If you’re looking for something a cheaper or smaller, Dell’s 24-inch monitor is $230 less than it’s larger sibling. The S2419HGF comes with the same 1ms response time but a slower 144Hz overclocked refresh rate. It can also support FreeSync from 40-120Hz.
You’ll also notice a thicker border around its perimeter compared to the S2719DGF. However, you still get those gaming profiles and preset modes and a Recon Blue with a touch of true blue in Dell’s logo.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on what sort of performance this next lineup brings to the table when we get our hands on the newest members of the Dell gaming monitor family for review.
