I would def return it with those dead pixels. Maybe go for an exchange? It would be hard for me to go back to 1080 now. My first Auria was defective where it would not show video for over a minute, and then nothing at all. Current monitor is working good. No dead pixels, some light bleed in lower right.
If you read the first reply in the post I mentioned, the guy mentions that the PWM flickering is worse the lower brightness you go. I've been playing with all sorts of different brightness levels to see if that ends up being true. I need to do more testing, but I tend to get headaches regardless of the brightness level.
I've had extended periods of 70 brightness (stock), then 50 brightness. Having issues with both. Now I'm actually trying 100 (which brings in the super retina-blasting whites, which are a whole other issue) to see if my headaches may actually be caused by the PWM.
I could not get the PWM tests from this link:
working at all. Either this display isn't affected by those problems, or, more likely, my point and shoot camera is completely awful. Or I'm goofing up the test.
Has anyone ever tried to do a PWM test on this model to see if we're affected by this? With the monitor needing 100W, I'm thinking we may not even be using LEDs? Sorry for being clueless...
Also, mine has a couple issues that may or may not be typical:
Does not show the BIOS of my motherboard (in sig). At all. Monitor has no picture until windows boots. I ended up plugging in my 19" 4:3 monitor to the left-hand primary video slot, then all was well.
Takes ~10 seconds to pop up after a game changes its resolution, or Windows changes its resolution. I've had a couple times where it takes longer than the 15 secs you have to click 'ok' and it reverts back.Edited by Lexxon87 - 8/18/12 at 2:42pm
