Godzilla @ 1080P
As for how the P2714T compares with high-end IPS panels we've had in for review, the colors were a little more washed out, and darker scenes lacked the same level of detail. This is to be expected since Dell's stretching a 1920x1080 resolution across 27 inches of real estate. That said, P2714T is able to produce a bright image, and as mentioned above, viewing angles are just as generous. Even though the experience doesn't match what top shelf monitors offer, the overall experience is by no means bad.
Dirt 2 @ 1920x1080
Dell doesn't pitch the P2714T as a gaming panel, and if you're a hardcore gamer with multiple graphics cards (or a single beefy GPU), you're better served with a panel that offers a 2560x1600 resolution (or thereabouts). If your demands aren't quite as heavy, the P2714T is a surprisingly good fit for gaming. We noticed only minor ghosting in fast moving titles, but otherwise it was free from unwanted artifacts. The same complaints we mentioned for movie watching apply here as well, only they weren't as noticeable when playing games. We don't recommend paying a premium to pick up this monitor strictly for gaming, but if you're in need of a touch panel, it's above average gaming performance is certainly a welcome bonus.
