The Dell S2522HG with an IPS panel is a budget-friendly monitor that excels in competitive gaming thanks to its very good refresh rate, ensuring smooth motion. With a 25-inch screen and full HD resolution, it's sufficient for average productivity tasks and casual gaming. However, it has only a fair color gamut, making it less ideal for precise digital photo editing or professional color work. Its adjustable stand and array of connectivity options, including multiple HDMI 2.0 ports and DisplayPort, add to its versatility, but its lower static contrast and brightness may not provide the best experience for HDR gaming and media consumption. Overall, it's well-suited for gamers looking for an affordable monitor with a strong focus on fast-paced action. Give Feedback

IGN

Matthew Smith | February 2022
"The Dell S2522HG changes the game. This 24.5-inch 1080p gaming monitor has a 240Hz refresh rate, yet it’s commonly sold for $249.99. That’s just tens of dollars more than an average 1080p 144Hz gaming monitor. The S2522HG cuts a few corners in its pursuit of pricing, but it’s a great choice for competitive gamers on a budget."
