The Dell AW2524H is an upper midrange IPS monitor with a stellar refresh rate and very low response time, making it excellent for competitive gaming. However, this focus on gaming means it has lower resolution and average color accuracy, so it's not the best for productivity or professional photo editing. It supports variable refresh rates to reduce screen tearing and comes with the ability to adjust the stand for comfort. This monitor doesn't excel in HDR gaming or media consumption due to its modest brightness and contrast, and while it can display a wide range of colors, its performance in tasks that require precise color reproduction, like print photo editing, is limited. With its matte screen, it minimizes reflections, which can improve the viewing experience in well-lit environments. Give Feedback

Christian Eberle | March 2023
"If you have the system for it, the Alienware AW2524H is the perfect display to show off next level frame rates and control response. With higher contrast and color volume than its 360 Hz competition, it currently has no equal."
