The S2417DG was once considered the gold-standard for the best gaming monitors and it definitely still holds its own with technology that rivals curved 27-inch monitors despite its size.
The monitor on its own is packed with some advanced features that the average consumer might not even know about. First, it features a 21:9 aspect ratio, which offers a much better field of view for everything from Photo-Shop and video editing to split screen multitasking in games. A QHD (2560×1440 pixel) res monitor, helps to provide sharp content, especially for very high-end games and video editing.
The refresh rate is a premium 165Hz and it is G-SYNC compatible. In layman's terms, it produces a buttery-smooth picture with special computer graphics programs (sorry, can't make that up) and requires little extra work from the graphics chip with no visible lag to the player's eye.
The monitor comes with VESA mounting options and can be wall mounted. The stand offers tilt adjust, swivel, and height options so you can get the exact fit you need. The monitor boasts a thin profile and small form factor meaning you can save some space while still being able to fit it on most desks.
The monitor boasts one of the best viewing angles, including 178° horizontal and vertically, more than enough for big groups in front of the screen.
The monitor was coated with a thin layer of screen protector already pre-applied (key is to peel away just enough to get rid of any bubbles) and it comes with a limited 3-year warranty.
I believe this to be a great monitor, especially for those who reside in a marketplace with a lower-than-average income.
