post #1 of 6

Black glows really bad and looks more grey than black in the lower corners escpessially lower right.
And White looks kinda yellowish in the lower area of the screen.

Is This normal or should i contact dell? Just got the screen.

I believe what you are referring to is IPS glow. As the name implies, it is a flaw inherent to IPS technology that causes a glow to appear during off angle viewing of dark backgrounds. As the U2711 has an IPS panel, this is a normal occurrence. The same thing happens on my ZR2740w.

If I remember correctly, isn't IPS glow just orange and blue depending on which side you look at it from? That's what my Dell has at least...

As for the colors: Try changing the color settings in your gfx card drivers. I've found I can really tell brightness/color changes by bringing up a blank white screen. I don't have your exact monitor but my U2311h has none of these problems

The actual color of the glow varies depending on the type of IPS panel used. My Dell U2211H, which was e-IPS, had a purple glow, while my HP ZR270w, which has an H-IPS panel like the U2711, has a greyish glow.

It have the glow when i am looking right at it not just when viewing off angle. That is why i am wandering because i didnt know that u would be able to see the glow so bad when sitting right infront of the monitor. it is not visible on other u2711's i have seen on the internet displaying black (doing black level test i dark room).
