Dell S2722DGM gaming monitor review

On paper, the new Dell S2722DGM looks almost the perfect affordable gaming monitor. It is fast, cheap, abundant in pixels, good panel specifications, and in most cases will not disturb those decorations and functions that add little cost to the gaming experience.

It is all built around a 1440p 27-inch VA panel with good overall specifications. VA technology is often cheaper than IPS, and with it comes certain advantages and disadvantages. As the S2722DGM specification sheet shows, the most obvious advantage is static contrast. Dell rated this monitor at 3,000:1, which is three times better than any IPS monitor.
