The Dell Alienware AW2521HF is a very good monitor for almost anything, with perfect response time. The 1080p resolution is very decent for its 25-inch screen, but smaller screen sizes also make it less ideal for multitasking, as there’s less room to have more windows open at the same time. The response time and input delay are outstanding and the color accuracy is good, although adobe RGB color space coverage may not be wide enough for content creators. It is suitable for use in a room of medium-bright light, but the performance of the dark room is disappointing, as there is a visible backlight and the low contrast ratio makes the blacks gray.

It has identical features to its older brother, the Dell Alienware AW2720HF, right on a more compact screen size of 25 inches. It has a resolution of 1080p, but thanks to its smaller screen, it results in higher pixel density and a sharper looking image. Its IPS panel has wide viewing angles and great reflection management, and can be bright enough to combat glare in bright rooms. However, the darkroom performance is a bit disappointing as it has a mediocre contrast ratio and there is visible bleeding of the backlight. It has exceptional motion management due to its fast response time and 240 Hz refresh rate, and also has low input delay and FreeSync support. Smaller screen sizes may not be best for productivity activities, but its high performance should keep most players happy though.
