    Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
    The Dell S3220DGF is a good monitor for mixed use. It has a large size and its 1440p resolution allows for a good amount of multi-tasking, but it doesn't offer as much real estate as a full 4k screen would. It can display HDR games with bright, vivid colors due to its wide color gamut and decent HDR peak brightness.

    Pros
    • Outstandingly low input lag
    • Good contrast ratio and black uniformity
    • High resolution
    Cons
    • Disappointing viewing angles
    • No local dimming feature

    Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following***:
    The Dell S3220DGF gaming monitor works well enough in some games, and beautifully with others. It offers a variety of presets, for genres like MOBA/RTS, FPS and RPG. Most of the presets are optimized for gaming, and have a bad habit of obscuring text. But they're also easy enough to switch, when you're between applications.

    Pros
    • Sleek design

    • Good color accuracy
    Cons
    • Lackluster brightness

    Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following***:
    The Dell S32DGF has a VA panel with 10-bit colour and a 4ms response time. Those figures are more suited to single-player gaming and mainstream eSports gameplay – that response time needs to be lower for high-level competition. The Dell is easy to build, with a stand that snaps into place and a base that attaches with a single screw. Its on-screen display is fast and sensibly organised, and it’s navigated with a row of no-nonsense buttons.

    Pros
    • Excellent contrast ratio
    • Impressive sRGB coverage
    • Decent build quality
    Cons
    • No portrait mode option
