What does everyone think about my situation in particular?
If its primary for work then go for the dell. Don't cheap out on work equipment.

I have yet to notice any burn in either at any Hz.

If you can afford it the U2713H might be a better alternative than the U2713HM for Adobe CS work as it is wide gamut.

Dell also has a vastly superior warranty and have their very good 0 dead/bright pixel policy, so you are guaranteed an A+ panel. Also have much better quality stands and less backlight bleed.

Moragg - I don't have the tools to calibrate, so out of the box performance is important. The U2713H's wide gamut is only taken advantage of by a FirePro or Quadro type card and I have a GTX 670, so that's not a big issue. I'm not an ultra professional here, more of a Marketing/PR professional where design is part of the workload. I just want something on par with my U2412M, not looking for the ultimate perfection.

Does anyone have any experience with the Dell outlet for monitors (saw a deal on there for $440 + tax for a U2713HM)? Price is an issue, so I'm considering all of my options. The higher hz and $290 price tag on the QNIX are appealing, but the lack of ports and reliability (both color and longevity) worry me.

Has anyone heard if the backlight issues on the U2713HM have been figured out yet?

Cash may be an issue but you really can't do proper color-critical work without a calibrator tool, man. Whether you need "perfection" or not. It will bite you in the ass eventually.

I hear you wrigley, and that might be something I consider going forward. What's your opinion on the QX2710 vs. U2713HM in general?
post #3076 of 25892
New stand







Has tilt, height adjust and 180 degree rotate, but because of how my monitor sits snug within my desk I'll never use them features. Shown at lowest setting and more than anything it is sturdy but because of the cheap plastics on the QNIX it still will shake, but not wobble the monitor like with the OEM stand.

Nice, I have a stand on the way also.. Is it easy to remove the default stand?

Not too hard. You have to open up the bezel to take the stub off.

Alright, I want to open it up anyway to try that BLB fix, i'm just a bit of a noob with opening up screens.

Never happened to me with any screen before and I've left some images on for hours on end, sometimes even days.

It's normal for these. Your screen is probably the same as everyone else's
