Around Christmas I decided it was time to buy a new “Gaming” monitor. With that in mind I set my sights on Dells gaming monitor, the S2716DG. I’d previously only ever owned a U2711 which is a nice IPS screen, but not very well suited for gaming due to its higher response times.
So, with that in mind I ended up buying the S2716DG (A03). My Del U2711 does have better color and viewing angles, but that’s to be expected.
With that in mind I went ahead and calibrated the screen with an i1 Display Pro hardware calibrator. Here are my results and a downloadable ICC profile.
Brightness = 28%
Contrast = 75%
Color Mode: Custom Color
R = 98%
G = 100%
B = 95%
120 cd/m2 Luminance
6560K (ish). Was very close to 6500K
Just throwing this out there for anyone who might be interested.
