Good idea.....

Dell just called me back to say they can't give me another exchange, and the only option is a refund axesmiley.png

My original monitor purchase was in December 2012 and have been battling with Dell ever since. I will never purchase another Dell product after this stressful experience.

I originally asked for a refund in February, which Dell said was impossible because; 1) I purchased the monitor from Newegg 2) It was after my 30 days.
Now they are bending over backwards to get rid of me. They told me this was the only option because every monitor sent me had issues (which were all refurbs accept for this one). How the F does that make sense!?

I work for a tablet computer manufacturer, and deal with LCD panels everyday. The problems people are having with their Dell monitors is completely unacceptable, and are obvious defects.

- Image retition
- Backlight bleed caused by tight caseing /bezel (lower left corner)
-Crosshatching (Caused by poor AG coating)
Ect.....

The color and resolution are fantastic, but come on! doh.gif

One person out of us with this bad of luck. Took me one replacement. I love mine and it's reviews stand out for itself. Great monitor when you get one that works anyway. Just like the PB278Q or VP2770. Each has similar stories and every other panel as well. Main concern is being able to have that replacement guarantee which carries a lot of weight to your most discerning consumer.

Edit - Wait, didn't you just get a Monoprice?

If DELL is offering you a refund....take it and try your luck elsewhere. Your experience isn't what everyone else is having and I know as a consumer we all base our next decision based on prior experience. I had the complete opposite experience and love this monitor.

I just got a u2713hm a few hours ago. It's from janurary 2013 Rev A00. It's looking pretty good. I haven't done any calibration yet. Just running the factory sRGB with brightness at 50 so far. No bad pixels, backlight bleed is minimal. There's a bit of yellow in the lower left, but it's only visible on a black background with brightness at 100. In regular use I can't see it at all. So I'm happy, I think it's a keeper.

There's one bad thing though. My gpu has a crappy one slot cooler with a loud fan, and the resolution of this monitor is making it a bit hot. Just by browsing the web where it is in light use it is 10 C warmer than with my old display, which was 1920x1200. I don't even know if I'll void the warranty if I put a custom cooler on it. I just got it at the end of march for around €720, so I certanly wont do it if it's voiding the warranty. Anyway my first impression of the monitor is definitely possitive.

I didn't say your trying to cause problems. I was curious what is wrong with the Monoprice?

It's one of the panels being offered by Microcenter which has some chance within 30 days of exchange until you find a monitor you like. So was wondering, what's wrong with yours?

As for you opinion about DELL....no worries. I don't mind. We are all allowed consumer preference freely. smile.gif
