Digma DM-MONG2740 Review
Requirements for gaming monitors are more serious than for office monitors because too many factors influence the success of a match, and gamers are picky people. So, the model should please with a fast matrix, an abundance of settings and high-quality color reproduction. Our editors received a new Digma, created for victories in intense skating rinks. Let's check it out.
The monitor turned out to be large – 61 centimeters wide and 36 centimeters high, and it weighs 7 kilograms. Such a device needs a reliable support. Stand DM-MONG2740 consists of a metal base and legs, which are fixed to each other with a screw. Next, you need to combine the stand and the grooves on the back of the LCD panel until a characteristic click is heard. The design is simple, stable and, if necessary, can be disassembled in a matter of seconds. Stand:
- VESA. The stand is cool, but the body of the monitor is made of plastic that looks and feels simple. This is noticeable if you touch the frame and the back panel, which users usually do not do. The frames around the perimeter of the display are thin, except for the “chin” with the brand logo. I liked the abundance of adjustments: the monitor can change the height, angle of inclination and rotation. There is an option to use the device in a vertical orientation, as well as wall mounting using VESA. There are also built-in speakers. They are loud, but the sound is flat, which is typical for speakers in most monitors. To watch YouTube, their capabilities are enough, but to immerse yourself in the game, you should use a high-quality headset and not disturb your loved ones.
- Mounting. In the area where the screen is attached to the leg, there is an element reminiscent of Tony Stark's reactor from the movie “Iron Man”. Expressiveness is added by a bright backlight on the lower end of the LCD panel – it is activated by pressing a special button. The LED lamp glows white, illuminating a large part of the table. It's the little things like that that make a good impression about the design. Digma DM-MONG2740 is devoid of tackiness, which some gaming models sin, but the positioning of the monitor is determined unmistakably. I also liked that the power supply is built-in – nothing gets in the way under your feet.
27 inches of pleasure
Digma DM-MONG2740 is equipped with a 27-inch IPS-matrix with a resolution of 3840·2160 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:9. The refresh rate is 144Hz and the response time is 5ms. The screen is matte and successfully resists glare. The backlight pleased with good uniformity, which is not found in every monitor of this class. Viewing angles are standard – 178 degrees, the picture remains clearly visible when viewed from the side. The maximum brightness is declared at 400 nits, but we did not manage to achieve such indicators: the test copy produced about 324 nits. However, this is more than enough for home conditions. Features:
- AMD Free Sync and NVIDIA G-Sync. Success in games depends on various factors, and speed is the main priority here. The faster the matrix, the smaller the input lag, the higher the chance of winning. Of course, hands from the right place will not interfere, but that's a thoroughly different story. The characteristics of Digma DM-MONG2740 allow you to feel confident in popular online shooters and respond in a timely manner to changes on the battlefield. With a 144Hz refresh rate, as well as support for AMD Free Sync and NVIDIA G-Sync, managed to achieve a smooth picture – without jerks and loops behind fast-moving objects, and without annoying picture breaks.
- Flicker-Free. The novelty also provides options for protecting eyesight. The Flicker-Free backlight is flicker-free and the Low Blue Light filter reduces blue light, protecting the eyes from fatigue. It was comfortable to interact with the Digma DM-MONG2740: the monitor performed well both in an interactive action movie and when watching a video.
The model boasts numerous settings. The menu with parameters is activated by pressing the joystick, located on the back of the monitor. Moving around the interface is intuitive, the joystick moves clearly. Among the settings available for change, we highlight the adjustment of contrast, sharpness and color temperature. Here you can enable gaming options, select operating modes and adjust the sound volume.
Plenty of ports, good equipment
All connectors are hidden under a removable shield. It is difficult to dismantle: you need to pull it towards you carefully so as not to damage the plastic latches. I liked the presence of USB Type-C, which serves to display the image on the monitor and quickly charge the gadget connected to it using the Power Delivery protocol at 65 watts. DisplayPort or HDMI also allow signal transmission. A couple of standard USB-C are useful for connecting flash drives. If you insert a drive into the port, its contents will instantly be displayed in the system explorer. There are built-in speakers and an audio jack. Finally, USB Type-B is provided for various peripherals. The manufacturer did not save on the delivery set. There was room in the box for USB Type-C, Type-B and DisplayPort cables. But the power cord was short. Fortunately, it is represented by a standard three-wire cord – you can buy an elongated analogue in almost every electronics store. We also note a pleasant trifle – a plastic holder for the management cable, attached to the leg.
