Has anyone used both a BenqXL2410t and Alienware AW2310?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just bought the XL2410t and even after going through three of them, I am still not happy with the panel uniformity two of them had, and the third seemed to be a botched panel with excess leakage at the bottom and a slightly different tint than the others (I had them side by side with the same exact osd/win7 settings). When looking around in games with a lot of solid colors, like WoW for example, I can notice the panel's clouding pretty easily since its so uneven. Even when looking at still webpages I can notice some of it. Like right now on OCN, I can see a slight "dimple" on each side of the monitor (which must be a manufacturing thing since I noticed this on all three panels).

I'm wondering if there's anyone out there that has used both the Benq and Alienware and if they could tell me how they compared to each other? Looking at flatpanelshd.com's reviews, the Alienware seems to have a bit more leakage at the bottom of the screen, but if it doesn't have any clouding problems with solid colors, I could deal with that. Another concern was input lag. The Benq supposedly has close to 0ms whereas the Alienware is around an average of 13ms. The two lcd's I've used before the Benq were around 4 and 6ms, so I'm wondering if 13 would be noticeable at all considering I'm used to lower, especially for FPSs?

It seems like the best place to order the AW2310 would be Dell's site. I was looking at their return policy and they said there could be a restocking fee if the item isn't defective/damaged. I couldn't find what their definition of defective would be. Does anyone who has used Dell's official store know if dead pixels, excessive backlight bleed, or bad panel uniformity would be covered under it or at least be grounds to get a replacement and not a refund? I'm used to Newegg/Amazon/Frys lax return policies.

My other option is to just use Amazon or Newegg (though with Newegg, I could only get a replacement, not a refund) and keep trying to get a better Xl2410t.
