Looking into one of the 1440p 144 Hz IPS monitors now. Just waiting for exclusive rights to drop and decide between G and F sync. What ever decision I make will be for another 2 years.

I haven't seen or heard of Dell offering any G or F sync monitor yet. Too bad because I'd jump on it confidently. I was impressed with the exceptional tight RMA service I received when I first purchased this one.

So would I. I really wish dell would jump into the market. I've ordered probably 14? monitors from them and it's always exceptional service. I'm just biased towards dell monitors. I'm looking at the acer, But i'll probably keep this for another year until the market settles down on the price along with a 4k 32inch tv.

Hey guys

I am contemplating acquiring a 27" WQHD monitor. I currently own a 27" Samsung P2770H which is a FHD TN panel which has served me well. I am eyeing the Dell U2715H which believe it or not is one of the cheaper options available in my country with its messed up exchange rate amounts to about $620 right next now. Other options (even some TNs) are more expensive.

Reviews on this monitor are good but I am weary because of IPS glow and all other Russian roulette style gambling and luck of the draw a lot of people have to deal with like this guy who had his new monitor and his RMA replacement have the same issue: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/peripherals/f/3529/t/19612986

I also have to wait for Dell to ship this in which will take several weeks so I would be dismayed if I had to go through the same trouble after such a long waiting period to get my hands on one in the first place.

Are IPS monitors really worth all the added trouble /effort? Any advise or suggestions? Thanks

IPS monitor is a nice upgrade for people that care about the picture and the colors. If we consider that today IPS is lot more affordable for computer enthusiasts is more and more appealing. Personally I will never go back to using a TN panel again.

If you can not find 1440p locally go for the Dell and hope for the best. There are no guarantees but just remember that usually there are more satisfied owners comparing to people with defective monitors. It is just that the ones with problematic monitors tend to write more on forums.

Still panel technology is not perfect and there is always a chance that you can receive imperfect monitor. This is not just Dell but any other brand selling IPS as well.

I'm going to 3rd this. I really like my U2713HM and would love to get an upgraded version with g-sync and a higher refresh rate.

Hey people, new member here. Just thought I'd sign up to share my, sadly rather unfortunate, experience with the U2713HM.
I've been using a 2407 WFP for a long time but decided it was time to upgrade and I've worked a lot on 2713H's at client offices (I do video editing and some motion design as a freelancer). But I didn't want the wide gamut (neither do any of my clients who have these monitors even know what wide gamut is but I'm sure they were just sold the most expensive model because it would be "better".)
Anyway, I found a good deal online where a shop was selling refurbished 2713HM's for something like 350,- euro's. The first one I got had a strange greenish blotching in the bottom middle of the screen. So I returned that and got another one from the shop, this had a whole lot of backlight bleed from the lower left corner, as well as clumps of bright pixels in that area. (not "always on" since the spots would go away on a dark background, but they showed up as bright spots on white or colored backgrounds.)
So I returned that one and got a refund.

Started looking for a 2nd hand one, and found one that was still under warranty. Bought it for 365,-. The screen looked good as I inspected it at the seller's place. But after a couple days use at home I spotted dead pixels/dark clumps. It also had one of those bright smudges near the bottom (though much smaller than the previous one). Can't understand how I hadn't spotted it before but there it is.

So I called Dell support and they didn't make an issue of sending me a replacement screen the next day (today) since it was still under warranty. Replacement arrived today but of course, this replacement has a stuck (red) pixel right in the middle of the screen. And another couple of small dark clumps left of the middle.

I don't know the model revisions of the first two refurbs I had but these other two are both Nov and Dec 2013 A00 revisions. This replacement (the dec 2013 one) also has some weird ghosting on certain blue colors that the other (nov 2013) A00 doesn't have at all, though I could probably live with that.

Called Dell again and they'll send me another one tomorrow (luckily I'm working from home this week) and then call me to check if this one is ok. I'm losing hope to be honest. This is gonna be my fifth U2713HM!!
Maybe I'm OCD-ing over small things, and you know if the stuck pixel or dark clump would be somewhere at the edge of the screen I might just go with it, but it's right in the middle!
Just checked my old 2407WFP and it has no issues at all with dead or stuck pixels.

Let's see what tomorrow brings...

Hello everyone, I would like to explain my problem:
I bought this monitor used by a private: DELL U2713HMt Rev. A00, July 2013.
The monitor works perfectly in all modes (standard, multimedia etc. etc.)
The problem comes in sRGB mode, when i select this mode, the colors have a tendency to red, white is no longer white but pink-purple.
Doing research on the web, I found out the factory calibration of the monitor and I remembered that the former owner had calibration problems (but that's because he used a Mac)
and I think that the former owner has played with this factory calibration.
Now, I know that each monitor has a staff of factory calibration, and so if I copy the factory calibration to another screen will not be 100% accurate.
But I think that if I copy the data of factory calibration by another screen, should be better than this pink-purple that currently appears.
On this forum I found a picture of the menu factory calibration, but it is not the same model-revision: here the image: http://www.overclock.net/t/1380527/official-dell-u2713hm-2560x1440-semi-glossy-ips-club/1790

I would ask, if anyone, can post a picture of the menu of factory calibration of the model the same as mine.

I also place a picture of my menu factory, which appears with the following combination of keys: turn the monitor off and on again while pressing the two buttons at the top, and then press the first button on the top to bring up the menu factory.
To clear the menu factory, simply turn off and on the monitor and please do not touch anything on the menu that appears.



Thank you and hope someone can help me blushsmiley.gif

I warning that, entering the menu factory, the monitor does not burn devil.gif

Yesterday I did some tests, changing the cables and playing in the settings of the Catalyst Control Center (my graphics card is an XFX Radeon HD 5750)

I could see that, with the HDMI cable, and the setting in the Catalyst Control Center by default pixel Format: YCbCr 4.4.4 to RGB 4.4.4 Studio Format (Limited RGB), follows that the monitor in sRGB mode, the colors become much more natural. (this setting is not available with DVI and DP cable).
Yeah, but the monitor has a resolution too large that does not support in HDMI, so I'm back with the DP cable and the temperature is back, too hot in sRGB mode.
I'm thinking that the problem of the color in sRGB mode, is not due to Menu Factory, I'll let you know smile.gif

Can anyone confirm this to me, i have U2713HM that i smashed (don't ask why), and i need panel. I dissasemble screen and i got this:
LTM270DL02 (-D01, C02) and according to code this is Samsung panel.

Can i switch to LG panel (more options, if i have more panels to choose) or i have to stick with this hard to find Samsung?

Thanks.

I just stopped by the club to say tomorrow I pull the plug on a 4K panel and handing down my U2713HM to the second rig. Considering I purchased the monitor in May 2013 I'd say this has been a great purchase as it's value continues. smile.gif

I can now say after owning my first Dell monitor I've been and am impressed, especially with customer service that makes things right and free cross shipping RMA's. My next monitor would have been a Dell but they don't have a 4K IPS Async monitor yet and I'm ready to make the 4K leap.
