Dell can send you 5,000 monitors til your satisfied so why not use the opportunity? It was included in the price tag...

It'd only be hesitant cause this is the first bunch and a few months or yrs down the road they'll release a rev 2, 3 and I'm not sure whether you'll be eligible...

If it's still within its 30-day return window do NOT send it in to Dell. They will only ship you refurbs from their outlet, which means chances of getting a perfect panel are much slimmer (dell considers up to 5 dead pixels as "acceptable"), and you've basically just paid full retail price for a used monitor. The turn around time may be faster but it's not worth it unless you can no longer go through the retailer.

Good luck on your quest though, OP biggrin.gif

This is mine. Check out the backlight bleed. May send it back!

post #16 of 31
i dont know. i just think you guys are fuzzing over backlight. but that is my opinion and i never really get to test out backlight. i always have windows up and pretty much never get the chance to see my screen completely black. i dont watch movies. there's one time i decided to take a video of all my monitors and the backlight seemed worse on the video than in reality. so imo i'd have to say you'd have to compare your backlight image to others on the same camera settings. i mean.. if it bothers you then send it back for another one.

Mine also has a little backlight bleed in lower left corner. It kinda bothers me some, but not enough to return it. No dead or stuck pixels. I pretty much just use it to either game or general computer use. I watch movies on my tv. The side monitors are Dell P2310H, 1080P TN monitors. No backlight bleed on them but games look so much better on the 27" IPS smile.gif


Judging from most pics of backlight bleed. My guess is it has to do with the panel mounting, and portions being too tight. If you press on areas of the bezel that don't have it, you can make it appear.

U2713HM was on sale for $550 shipped last week. You get a lot better monitor, with a 3 year warranty, for a little bit more vs the korean ones.
