    Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
    The Dell S2721DGF is a great monitor for most uses. It has wide viewing angles, excellent ergonomics, and great reflection handling. Motion looks great thanks to the excellent response time, and it has low input lag. Unfortunately, although it supports HDR, this doesn't add much due to the low peak brightness and low contrast.

    Pros
    • Outstanding response time
    • Wide horizontal viewing angle
    • Excellent ergonomics
    • Great reflection handling
    Cons
    • Low contrast ratio
    • Bad black uniformity
    • No local dimming feature

    Sentiment Score 90%
    Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following***:
    The Dell S2721DGF has a large and accurate DCI-P3 gamut with almost 93% coverage. It's best to calibrate in either Custom Color or one of the Gaming modes. Game and Movie add very obvious edge enhancement and should be avoided. The only thing we wish for are gamma presets.

    Pros
    • Excellent image quality
    • Excellent contrast
    • Accurate DCI-P3 gamut
    Cons
    • No sRGB mode
    • No HDR mode
