Anyway, when I watch it it looks just like I am viewing it on a u2713HM, because I am. tongue.gif

Well at least he didn't post a screenshot and say look at the vivid colors tongue.gif

Ok so when I use the multimedia preset, it seems to give the most vibrant colors.

I really don't know what to tell you; when I switch to the multimedia preset it just seems like the sharpness is way higher and everything has a blue tint. The colors aren't more vibrant, they just all look off. I am coming from a u2211h e-IPS, and the u2713hm has colors that are at least as vibrant as that. This is a calibrated monitor, so you may be used to saturated (incorrect) colors on monitors that are not calibrated.

I got mine today the A01. The yellow glow is really bad that I'm going to exchange. I'm very happy with Dell though because they will ship me a new one right away. The white glow is a bit exaggerated from the picture compare to reality but the yellow is almost the same thing I see.

Can I join the club too?

Update: Called Dell Friday morning 1AM April 19 and got monitor today 1pm Aril 24. They told me seven days and made it in five.

No bright dot. No dark dot. smile.gif!

That's two monitors from them that was free of dead pixels.

I didn't have the proper time to check for back light bleed. Will be doing that tonight after work very very late. I will post back with some pictures at 30% and 100% brightness for this interested.

It is in fact revision A01.

I was curious about any other members who had requested a replacement and what their status was?

@royalkilla408 - post a pic of your monitor with your OCN name on notepad or paint for entry link. See OP for example. Congrats on the monitor. I agree with you about Dell's good service. smile.gif

After comparing the two monitors that I have (the first of which I am sending back tomorrow and is Rev A00, second is Rev A01), I have come to realize that both have similar amount of backlight bleed/ips glow, but just in different areas. The first one that I got had yellow bleed in the lower left corner, while the second has what appears to be white bleed on the bottom edge, about a third of the way from the left side. However, I think that both of these issues are actually IPS glow, and simply a function of how the panel itself is mounted in the enclosure.

I believe the bleed on the second panel seems whiter because it is closer to the middle, so I am not viewing it from as extreme of an angle as the yellow bleed on the original panel. With this monitor, it appears that viewing a black screen from the right side of the monitor will make it look yellow, while viewing a black screen from the left side will make it look white/blue. This is simply IPS glow; you can see from most people's pictures that the "bleed" on the right side appears to be white while that on the left appears to be yellow.

IPS panels in general don't have very good black levels or black consistency, and this monitor sadly doesn't seem to be an exception. I was considering returning the second panel I got again, but the bleed is only noticeable when I am actually sitting and staring at a completely black screen or watching a VERY dark scene in a show/movie. Watching letterbox movies isn't as much of an issue as I would have thought, as the backlight "bleed" on the bottom is significantly less bright than the image that is being displayed above the bottom black bar, so my eyes don't see it as much.
The yellow corner bleed does end up being more of an issue because the IPS glow has a tint shift, so watching anything in 4:3 will make the yellow fairly noticeable.


For web browsing, general use, and especially games the U2713HM is fantastic though; I never see any bleed at all in games so it has been a non issue. Despite the mediocre black levels and prescence of clouding/glow/bleed on a completely dark screen, the contrast actually seems to be quite good.



Also, if you see yellow glow on the left side and white glow on the right side when you are very close to the monitor don't be alarmed; that is just IPS glow and is not noticeable when you are viewing the panel from farther away. If you still see yellow glow in the corner when viewed from far away you may want to have Dell swap it out for one that is better.

So I'm seeing some improvement at 100% brightness and looking great at 30% brightness in the new revision I was sent.

Not flawless, but it seems the yellow bleed from A00 is now more a whiter glow showing in A01 in the same lower left hand corner. Not so clear on the straight shot but the side view shows it's white.

At 100% brightness it doesn't show any glow in movies or games and better in black borders like movies or games in the lower left corner but it seems the rest of the screen is displaying blacks a bit deeper than my previous monitor did.

At 30% brightness it's as good as the PB278Q I tried and near perfect.

I agree with Mjolnir125 and many other owners who've echoed there are no perfect IPS monitors without IPS glow. I've seen much more expensive monitors with even more IPS glow even back light bleed. DELL has quality control down checking panels for no bright or dark dots. Amazingly both my monitors were spot free.

In the next three years I'm confident in DELL's Premium Panel Warranty and great customer service which was already proven. In the end....I ended up getting an A01 revision swapped by DELL and paid $585 on Newegg sale. I sold an Alienware OptX monitor for $180 and couldn't be happier with my $405 upgrade. thumb.gif

Edit to add: It too can display 80 Hz refresh rate. smile.gif

No dead pixels. Example of white being displayed with light AG semi-glossy matte.

Zero Dead Pixels (Click to show)

I wanted to point out neither of A00 or A01 had any dead pixels or bright dot. Very pleased as this is one strong point of this monitor it seems with quality control.

Anyone had luck overclocking this on an AMD card?
post #269 of 3079
So the yellow glow in the left is normal and I wasted time getting it exchanged?

If you go close enough to the screen you will see yellow glow on the left corners and white glow on the right corners no matter what. If you see a lot of this glow from farther away, then you may be able to get a monitor that has less if you swap it out.


I can overclock mine (with an AMD card) with the custom resolution utility, but it doesn't actually seem to like refresh rates over 60hz (cursor movement becomes jerky, which I think means frames are being skipped). I don't really mind though, since I have always had 60hz monitors and I didn't buy this intending to OC it.
