Nobody needs an introduction for Dell monitors. Everybody knows that Dell is synonymous with manufacturing some of the best monitors in the market.

This is true in almost all of the price ranges. It doesn’t matter if it is budget, multimedia, gaming or professional, Dell monitors are some the default choice for many.

Dell SE2717HX RVJXC is a 27 inch monitor that happens to hail from the budget range. It is not common to find quality 27 inch monitors in the market, therefore to have one by Dell is quite the blessing.

If you are a tight budget and if you still need to facilitate yourself with a large screen monitor, then this is the monitor to go for. It has the same style and looks as the famous Dell Ultrasharp monitors, and it has all the bells and whistles to keep you entertained.

It should be noted that this is not a monitor built for professional work or for professional gaming. However, you can still reap the benefits of this monitor in casual work and casual gaming.


Design and Features

Dell SE2717HX RVJXC Review

For starters, this monitor has a very slim bezel. You can tell by the looks that it gets its aesthetic appeal from the signature Dell Ultrasharp monitors with their minimalistic designs. From the screen itself to the stand, everything about this monitor speaks of elegance. This is quite an achievement for a monitor that is so cheap.

This monitor features an IPS panel which promises vivid colors as well as much wider viewing angles as compared to the older TN panel monitors. Furthermore, it features FHD resolution, which quite typical a for a monitor of this size.

At 6 ms response time, this monitor may not have the fastest response time, for a budget monitor that features IPS panel, this is quite decent. On top that, this monitor comes with several features to make your viewing experience comfortable like FlickerFree Screen and ComfortView.

One of the best features of this monitor is that it features AMD Free-Sync. Dell is known for creating new market standards for monitors. With this monitor, they have made a new one: AMD FreeSync technology on a budget 27 inch monitor.

This essentially makes this Dell SE2717HX RVJXC one of the best budget gaming monitors in the market. The AMD Freesync is a technology that helps reduce screen tear and stuttering and this making your gaming experience much smoother.

This monitor is also highly suitable for a dual or triple monitor setup. It is cheap, so it won’t cost a fortune to have a setup like that. Furthermore, it has slim bezels. Therefore, you can seamless view between two screens.


The port connectivity options are not the best in the market, but they are quite decent. Dell SE2717HX RVJXC offers a VGA and an HDMI port. Therefore, connecting this monitor to PC or other multimedia devices should not be an issue.

Since this monitor does not have high-end features like WQHD resolution or 144Hz refresh rate, it does not really need a DisplayPort.

However, should you have the need to connect this monitor via a Displayport or DVI port, you can always get adapters for that.


This is a budget 27 inch monitor. The real question is: how does it fare with the competition? Simply, put. There is nothing that can compete with the value of this monitor.

If you consider the close competitors like the ViewSonic VX2776-SMHDLG 27MP58VQ-P or the Acer H277H smidx, you will realize Dell SE2717HX RVJXC not only beats the competition in terms of price point but also in terms of specs.

The Cons

One of the biggest drawbacks of this monitor is that it does not feature VESA mounting holes. This is a shame for a monitor that is rather perfectly designed for multiple monitor setups.

VESA mounts would have enabled this monitor to be mounted up on the wall as well on dedicated stands. Although it is not necessary, many enthusiasts like to have their monitors mounted on dual or triple monitor stands.
