I purchased from Newegg.

I did an exchange with DELL directly.

First POST with first call into Dell.

Second POST with comparison between revision received.

Third POST actual follow up by DELL rep.

In short - purchased from Newegg - called DELL - they transferred monitor to me within a few mins - sent a replacement while I kept the other and DELL paid for the return shipping. Free of charge until you get a monitor that's working properly you can be happy with. I can now say this with confidence and the proof is in this club with successful exchanges.

Yeah, no issues ordering from Newegg and replacing with Dell. I did the same thing. They just transfer the ownership. I bet you'll get an A00 from Newegg though...they're probably still clearing out their stocks, but idk.

Also, I understand that all of these displays have IPS glow, it just irks me that slight pressure on the bezel makes it go away. Couldn't they maybe design the bezel with a bit more clamping force to produce the same effect? idk

Also also, this A01 is wayyy brighter than my A00 at the same settings. And the colors seem more vivid. Not sure why, but I'm not really complaining.

btw, which ICC Profile are you guys using? I've got all the TFT Central profiles saved on my comp.

I agree if you look through all these monitor posts, doesn't matter which monitor, they're all tweaking their panels which will vary the amount of IPS glow that goes through. You think this would be some sort of simple fix that manufacturers can produce. It seems not.

I'm using Color Temp 6500K at 35% brightness and 75% contrast for everything ATM. I don't switch between profiles if I'm gaming or watching movies. As for color settings, IDK maybe better ones.

I have a spyder 4 pro, and I calibrated using DispcalGUI and Argyll CMS open source drivers. In the custom preset (which is a slightly larger gamut than sRGB) my optimal RGB slider values were 97,99,100 for RGB respectively. That got the gamma pretty close with my panel, and the software calibration got it the rest of the way.

The TFTcentral icc profiles didn't really look much like my calibrated settings; most of them ended up having a weird hue. There is a very real variation in panels, so the tftcentral profiles might not even be close.

The sRGB profile without any icc profile should be fairly close; you can check your calibration sheet to see how close it is. However, Dell only tries to get under a deltaE of 5, whereas my monitor has an average DeltaE of .65 when calibrated, with a max of 2.5 or so (only on the white, which is just off of 6500k).

I would upload my profile, but the forum won't let me upload the .icm file type. In any event it won't really be all that useful; according to the calibration sheets from the two monitors I have received they have fairly different DeltaE values (first one had higher values across the board), so any calibration files I post are not going to necessarily fit your panel.


The custom and standard modes should have more saturated colors than the sRGB mode because the actual gamut of the monitor is higher than sRGB. The standard and custom presets have about 84% of Adobe RGB, while the sRGB preset has only 77% of that color space and just under 100% of sRGB color space. In other words, the sRGB mode is really an artificially limited emulation mode, and won't have colors that are as vibrant (although they will be accurate for the sRGB color space).

Basically, the ICC profiles you get off of TFTcentral are more or less worthless, since every panel has a variation in color. When you calibrate the panel, you try to counteract these color differences by making software changes (to the gamma tables). The TFTcentral icc profiles contain the corrections for the variations of that specific panel, which are not necessarily what your specific panel of the same monitor needs. For some really poorly stock calibrated panels it might get you in the ballpark, but for a high end monitor like the U2713HM which is factory calibrated in the sRGB mode, you are probably just as likely to have colors that are off in any direction.

The bottom line is that you need a dedicated calibration unit for photo work. However, if you just want it to look nice to your eyes, just pick whatever profile looks best.

Ok that was much clearer, thank you smile.gif

I guess I'll just stick to the stock profile and preset.

Guys, anyone had problems with viewing videos?
I bought this monitor a few days ago and noticed that when you watch movies, he make dark objects even more darkest so you barrely see them.
any shadow become a black spot in the movie mad.gif

Hi pygmalion, first time poster new to OCN I see. Welcome aboard. smile.gif

Well deep blacks are nice but what you said is too dark. Questions.....

What pre-set are you using? What's your brightness and contrast set at? Have you downloaded the driver?
