Ordered a replacement monitor a few weeks ago since mine came with a dent in the back and a bad AC adapter. I received the Matte finish, no dead pixels, 1/2 inch thicker bezel, which I'm not a big fan of. The whites look off-white and running this dead pixel test
, it looks like the colors swap when I change focus between windows. Additionally, there's a slight hue in these tests that fades from the top to bottom (red to green or green to red depending on which color combination I pick). Something I haven't noticed at all with the glossy finish (all the color combinations blend to an even gray on the glossy LCD). Anyone know what's causing this?
I'm a bit hesitant to keep this monitor even though the original one I receive arrived with a giant dent in the back. I never see the dent, but know it will devalue the monitor if I ever decide to sell it.
