Anyone choosing this over the S2721DGF that was posted a few days ago? I just ordered two of the S2721DGF to upgrade from 1080p 60/75hz and I'm stoked to experience the difference.

Ref: https://slickdeals.net/f/15073780-dell-27-gaming-monitor-s2721dgf-2k-165hz-ips-panel-340-with-dell-10-new-email-signup-340
If you are getting 2 , then I would prefer 1 of each model.
2k 165hz for gaming and 4k for video and productivity

I've heard 4k is wasted on 27". Is there any credence to that?

High DPI on monitors helps a lot with text and image clarity. I use my monitors with less than 2 feet distance, so I don't see any issues using a 4k 27 in.
On top of that if you have a 2k and 4k monitor, so have an option of using the 4k monitor for non fps games at 60 hz 4k, which u will be missing with the s2721dgf.

Maybe one 2k and one 4k then.

Will there be issues running two different resolutions at the same time? I'll start looking into the specific issues but I've read in passing things like Netflix may not play 4k if there's a lesser resolution on one of the monitors. I'm concerned with things like that when you have two different monitor resolutions. Or just the logistics of "switching" the monitor you want to main when gaming vs watching 4k content so it's directly in front of you.

I don't get the hype, I tried this one a few months ago and was not impressed at all. Lackluster color and brightness sadly.
That's disappointing to hear. What were you using them for and what did you end up getting instead?

I probably wouldn't like 4K on 27" myself. I got two 32s and still have some trouble deciding between going small enough DPI to take advantage of the screen space vs. big enough text to read clearly. I have liked the 4K on 32s vs 1080p on 27s overall. Note: purely for business/desktop production. No gaming.

Does anyone know if this monitor is better than the other SD from Dell for 27" Dell S2721DGF 1440p 165Hz FreeSync IPS Monitor? I feel that this is a better monitor but why the price is lower. Am I missing something?

The monitor in this deal is 60Hz and 4K.

I've noticed the 32 inch version, S3221QS has an issue where texts aren't as clear on MacOS even with 4k @ 60hz. Would this be a lot better because of the increased pixel density? Used strictly for productivity and no gaming.

Quote from myco2 :
for secondary monitor I would prefer higher refresh rate. as you see above mentioned only 40-60hz. I got mine 2wks ago s3221qs max can get 4k@30hz or 2k@60hz. color a bit wash out . perhaps will find another model like s3422dw/dwg or other brand with higher specs
I just received the S3221QS as well and was able to run 4k@60hz but still finding the texts on MacOS to not be clear when used with the MBP 16 inch. I was using a 4K@60hz HDMI cable but just purchased a 4K@60hz DisplayPort as well to see if it'll make a noticeable difference in text clarity.

Considering swapping the S3221QS for this S2721QS if texts are more clear from the increased pixel density.

Don't do it if you're using a Windows PC...look up text scaling issues with different resolutions.

This monitor is now reduced to $297 without the email coupon and additional 10% off with coupon.

https://deals.dell.com/en-us/mpp/...etail/92ap

This is why deals like this thread based on the blanket email coupon are fake deals.

Using the blanket coupon with a long expiration date is best waiting for the best price one can get without the coupon when frequent sales keep happening or if you really HAD to buy it at the current lowest price and the coupon helps swallow the price not being the lowest at that time.

A tip about using monitors with Macs. It works best when the PPI of the monitor is integrals of 72. The closer it is to the integral say 144 or 216 for the high resolutions, better it looks without anti-aliasing making it a bit fuzzy. The higher the resolution, less of an issue this would be. This is assuming square pixels.

So for 4k resolution, the ideal monitor for a Mac would be a total display area of 400inch squared which is about 30.6" diagonal in wide screen aspect ratio. Small variations around it is ok. So a 32" 4k would work better than a 27" 4k.

With newer MacOS versions multiples of 1.5 or 2.5 (108 or 180) will also work but some apps would look fuzzy or worse because they haven't optimized for non integral multiples for pixel alignment of their drawing.

So 1440p would work well and better with a 27" than a 24" or 25" or 32". And ironically, 4k 24" would also work better than a 4k 27" in clarity (not size of text).

Other OSes may work differently in their anti-aliasing capabilities. Windows does a much better job with text for monitors of any PPI, but many of the Windows apps look like crap in high DPI monitors.

Thanks for the huge knowledge bomb! I found out the S3221QS has 140PPI while the S2721QS has 164PPI through Rtings. I'm assuming this is when it's ran at the native 4K resolution but I actually had to scale down because everything was too tiny for productivity and I know there's no way I could use 4K on a regular basis.

Your post made me do some more research into this and I realized it's hard to find anything comparable to the retina display until 5K monitors are more affordable down the road. I was going to spend $525 on the LG 32UN880 but just now found out that it has 139PPI so about the same as the Dell 32 inch except the USB-C convenience + Monitor Stand adds another couple hundred to the price
