[Official] Dell U2713HM: 2560x1440 Semi-Glossy IPS Club - Page 5

post #41 of 3079
Hey guys just got my U2713HM this week and it seems like most people are getting a lot of backlight bleeding with this model, particularly in the bottom left corner. I was hoping it wouldn't be an issue with mine but the one I received (Feb 2013 manufacture date) has the same issue. I already got an RMA monitor sent to me and it has the exact same issue except it's even worse and obviously refurbished (monitor stand is a little scratched up and manufacture date of Sept 2012).

It's pretty noticeable when watching a movie/playing a game with dark scenes. Am I being too nitpicky or should I just make a full return? I'm honestly considering the Asus PB278Q at this point...

Turn down the brightness to about 50%, it should make it much less noticeable or not noticeable at all. The PB278Q also has backlight bleeding issues and a higher chance of getting dead pixels so I wouldn't go that route. Did you RMA through Dell or the retailer you bought it from?

I would like to see a picture of the black back ground screen with 100% brightness 75% contrast. A second picture with 30% brightness and 75% contrast. If you'd like for us to judge that for you.

I guess it depends if you see a lot of back light bleed when you're watching movies or game. If it's noticeable return.

Are you sure you're not seeing IPS glow? Technically if you're not happy, return it. All monitors have done issue or another. I'm trying the U2713HM because the PB278Q I got last week has either a dead pixel or dust spot almost ceneter screen. No back light bleed minimal IPS glow.

The U2713HM has to fair better. Worse of the two goes back.

I already had the brightness set to 20 in the OSD menu before even checking for backlight bleed and when I set it to 100 it's very noticeable. Just loaded up The Dark Knight Rises and in the night scenes you very easily see the yellow glow coming from the corner. The anti-glare coating on my U2711 made text unpleasant to read for long periods of time which is the main reason I bought this but apart from that it had no issues like this.

Here are some pictures I took. Sorry about the quality, I'm not sure why it looks so bright. The first two are at 20% and the last one is at 100% brightness.

That's ridiculously bad, never seen anything like it tongue.gif
At 100% I can barely notice it on mine. I'd definitely RMA it again, sucks that you've had two bad ones.

Mine already delivered, it has been tough to not leave work to go home and get it setup.

Looking at it with my own eyes I can only notice it being really bad at the bottom left corner where there's a large yellow glow, at 100% I can see the glow come up from the top left.

It's weird that camera makes it looks 100x worse than it actually is though.. laughingsmiley.gif

I'm definitely going to RMA both, but I feel like I'm playing the lottery at this point. I read through the Hardforum thread on this monitor as well and it seems to be a very common issue but I figured it was because people tend to post more when they have problems than those who don't.

It is the most common issue with this monitor but don't let it put you off. There's still a much higher chance of getting a perfect monitor than there is getting one with problems.

Sorry the luck your having. Your also right about those with good monitors tend not to post as the more vocal upset consumer. Here at OCN we show off no back light bleed with pride. biggrin.gif We also meticulously point out dead or bright pixels out for all to see too though.

The yellow in the lower left corner isn't backlight bleed; it is actually IPS glow. If you put pressure on the frame of the monitor to flex it (lightly), the yellow will change location entirely (and likely be all over the screen). It has to do with how the panel is installed in the enclosure; it appears that it is under some sort of pressure that results in that color IPS glow in the lower left corner. If you look at the panel from below, it shouldn't appear to be yellow in the same place.

Regardless of what the yellow actually is, it can be fairly annoying. Dell is sending me out a new one no questions asked for the same issue, so hopefully it will fare better. My old U2211h had IPS glow, but it was purple/blue and fairly normalized across the entire display so it wasn't as noticeable.
