This was posted earlier at post#1141 for trying to see the panel number label, also what is your Rev number and manufacture date.

As far as BLB, yes there is some BLB. This is the nature of a high res IPS panel. It doesn't seem to be as bad as the older panel, but it seems to be more the way the monitor is assembled and the pressure points of the panel to the bezel. It real life use though, its very hard to tell.

For me crosshatching was more of a defect with the monitor and that has been fixed greatly with the newer panel(SLC1).

I like to gamble and I have time on my hands, and all reports say that I can keep sending my monitor back (free of charge, that's important) if it turns out to be of bad quality. Currently my order is "In Production," so I assume that they are making a new one to send out. Estimated delivery is August 5. I will be sure to post a short review here whether it's good or bad and post the revision number once I receive it . I'm in Canada and ordered directly from Dell for the $550 on sale price. I'm very much looking forward to replacing my Asus VE278Q, as the colours on it just don't compare to my old BenQ FP241W that I sold for cheap as it was starting to get random noticeable permanent "burn in lines" on it after five years of use. I'm hoping that once again I will get what I pay for, so to speak. Thanks to everyone here for the honest reviews, screen caps, etc. that helped me make my decision and warn me about what I may be getting myself into.

See your new to OCN....like to welcome you aboard. biggrin.gif Glad the club thread was of some help in making your decision and you know what's up.

Quick review of the display I received:
-Screen has a 3/4" vertical scratch around the bottom center. Not visible during normal use so not a problem.
-No noticeable crosshatching.
-Backlight bleed is acceptable, but could be better.
-There is a yellow/orange tint along the left edge. Not noticeable on a black screen, but noticeable on grey.
-There is a dark spot in the right center of the screen affecting about 6 pixels. It is dirt trapped inside the panel or some kind of defect.

I contacted support by phone to request a replacement. I've been happy with support so far at least.
I left instructions requesting the newer revision which I hope will work.

See your also pretty new to OCN....welcome aboard! thumb.gif Thanks for keeping us posted with your info.

ascari found the right info. It's on the back of the panel underneath with inputs and right next to the S/N # and also on your Dell box outside label. Congrats COMBO2 on a good monitor finally. smile.gif



BTW @ ascari - see your new to OCN as well. A lot of new posters here....welcome aboard OCN too. biggrin.gif

Hi all!
I'm new to the site but I've been lurking in this thread and other monitor ones for a while.
I got my u2713hm today, it;s a rev A01 April. At first I was thrilled with the monitor, cross hatching only view able on the bottom of the screen on white backgrounds.
But I noticed not too long ago that I have some yellow BLB in the lower left hand corner.
Should I go for it and get a replacement or not?

Welcome long time lurker first time poster to OCN as well. thumb.gif

When we do the test for BLB on a complete dark screen, example using MS Paint in full screen, it's more to get an idea how bad it might be. I've found BLB seems to be in the same spot with certain monitors like the U2713HM is lower left and the PB278Q in upper right.

My question when I'm told about seeing back light bleed....Is it visible when your using your monitor in actual use watching movies, working on desktop, viewing pictures or in games when played? Is it bleeding through in actual use.?

I can take some pictures later when I gets dark here
It's not noticeable in a bright game but on any black loading screen and even on steam I can see the yellow tint.
I'll probably ask for a replacement from dell and see if I get a better one.
A quick question for you all, if I get a replacement from dell does that stop me getting a refund from amazon or dell ?

No need for pictures. You've answered the question....it's showing in black borders when in actual use.

I'm not a 100% but If Dell takes over transferring the ownership to you from Amazon then Amazon is technically no longer responsible. However I do know that members here have been offered refunds from Dell when they were not able to fulfill their exchange with passable monitor. You can call Dell on it and talk to their sales support before making a decision unless another member here who's gone through it can confirm.

Thanks for all your help

I bit on the recent $549 CAN sale on July 26 and just received a June 2013 Rev A00.

Looks perfect to me after some quick tests.
No buzzing.
No cross-hatching(I'm assuming I would recognize it if I saw it)
No backlight bleed/yellow tint that I can see at 35% brightness.
Don't know about image retention yet.

I'll run through the lagom tests and look for dead pixels but other than that, I don't care to search for non-obvious flaws.

FYI, my monitor history:
1. Dell U2007WPF (now 3rd monitor at work)
2. Dell U2209WA(exchanged 3 or 4 times for buzzing at brightness <100%, now in use as TV)
3. Dell U2410 (no problems other than a little buzz at <75% brightness, replaced by U2713hm, bumped down to 2nd computer)
4. This U2713hm.

Esteban first welcome to OCN with your first post. Secondly congrats on your monitor. thumb.gif

If you saw crosshatching, yes you'd know it. Glad to hear you don't. Image retention is the least of your worries as this isn't really hasn't been an issue with this monitor and that's been the consensus with club members. Seems the June A00 revision is the monitor that may have addressed the issues this had as your the second or third person who got lucky with it. Not going to draw conclusions just yet until it becomes more evident and we can get more data regarding this revision from more owners.

Please feel free to post a pic with your OCN name in screen shot per OP page and submit a form there to join us in the club. biggrin.gif

Glad to hear you got a good one. It sounds like the June A00s are hitting retail now. Hopefully this is good news for those of us languishing in the swamps of perpetual replacement.

I'm in Canada as well, which seems to confuse the Dell people a lot when I get transferred around to various departments. Maybe this means the next one is likely to be a new panel! (If there is a next one... I haven't made much progress in the last couple days figuring out what they're going to do with me now.)
