There was no discussion of where I purchased it, warranty transfer, etc. He just did it. I even requested a Rev A01 and he ensured me that is what I will be receiving. Fingers crossed that I get a good unit, but I'm happy with Dell support now! Thanks guys.

I used chat twice, and it went very smoothly both times. You must have just gotten a bad rep the first time.

Hi, i have a question: i can "overclock" my dell 2713hm to 85Hz at 2560x1440 on 2D desktop. but now i realized that when gaming (e.g. World Of Tanks) the resolution gets set back to 60Hz at 2560x1440, and also some other games do this, but on the other hand: games like Metro 2033 or anno 2070 work with the 85Hz and do not fall back. does someone now how to "force" or override the directx applications, in order that any game will launch with 85Hz instead of 60Hz ?
thanks

Just did the Dell chat thing as well. Transferred the ownership and shipped me a replacement. Hopefully it's better than my current one.

Thanks! I also developed some pretty nasty IR last night, and noticed a stuck pixel. My replacement is arriving today, and I'm very glad I went ahead and made the effort to get it replaced.

Just got my replacememnt...it's a Rev A00 refurb! How lovely! mad.gif

Will post back later once I set it up to see if it's any better than the one I have.
post #487 of 3079
Ok, I've opened up the refurb and set it up.

Much to my surprise, everything about this unit seems to be better than my first. Left to right color uniformity, backlight bleed, crosshatching, and buzzing are all dramatically reduced compared to the first. I wouldn't say any of those issues are 100% gone, but this one is much better overall. It even seems to be better calibrated out of the box, showing much less of the yellow hue I was seeing in gray tones on the first one. I am going to calibrate with my i1DisplayPro anyway, but I just noted that at first glance.

Dell called me earlier to let me know the unit would be arriving today, and they said they would call me tomorrow. I'll let them know I was told I would be receiving a brand new Rev A01 model, but this one looks acceptable and I'll hang onto it for now.

I agree it should have been new too. Glad to hear issues are acceptable. smile.gif

I sure wish it was, but who knows, a new A01 could have been even worse. I don't have time to go round and round with these guys at Dell, so I'm just going to call it a day with this one.

Does anyone know if receiving a refurbished unit affects my warranty at all? If it does, this thing is definitely going back.
