Thanks for your reply. In my case it would be cost wise better to order from Newegg to prevent being charged sales tax from either Dell or Amazon here in Texas. I did contact Newegg and they will pay for the return & replacement shipping charges within the 1st 30 days so if i decide on this monitor i will go through them.
I dont do any gaming but do alot of photography work & editing. I built the below rig last year and only have a single Nvidia 560 ti but it should be sufficient for my needs.
Out of curiosity i did go to Microcenter this past Monday and purchased the Auria 27" 2560 x 1440 since they dont display them in store for viewing. Before i left the store the technical staff allowed me to sit the Auria up in their office and test it out. I found no BLB or dead pixels but visually i could see why they dont store display this unit for consumers. My present Asus VW246H TN 1080 panel has much better IQ then the Auria. I boxed it up in the store and returned it for a full refund at the service desk. I wasted about 2 hours of my time but found out the Auria could not meet my expectations.
Hopefully this Dell U2713HM will at least equal the IQ of the Asus VW246H that i only paid $220 for several years back. I know i will have much more real estate to view.
