Product Overview

Dell S2721HGF is an affordable 27-inch FHD curved gaming monitor in Dell's 2020 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit VA panel.
Its 1500 curvature provides a more immersive visual experience. The included stand comes with tilt and height adjustments that make for a more ergonomic viewing experience. Additionally, this monitor can get quite contrasty.
In terms of drawbacks, this monitor lacks HDR support. Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.

The Dell S2721HGF did a decent job in our benchmark tests, proving that it's a worthwhile monitor for its price. The curved display especially helped getting immersed into the game, as it felt like the world wrapped around my sightlines. However, the display could be brighter and its picture quality isn't exceptional.

The Dell S2721HGF is decent for most uses. It has low input lag, fast response time, and a high refresh rate, making it great for gaming. However, it's only decent for work and media consumption, mainly due to its 1080p resolution and poor ergonomics. Unfortunately, it doesn't support HDR.
