Well, no one here can see your screen and I'm guessing most are not comparing a TN panel next to their PLS. I think most are just happy with the resolution and overclock-ability. Maybe check your cable to ensure nothing weird is happening there. Otherwise it sounds like your not PLS fan...

I've been reading this off and on for months now and may finally be ready to pull the trigger. Ive been debating about paying the $60-70 premium for ipsledmonitors solid return policy, vs buying one on ebay and having to worry about the hassle of returning one that looks like crap. Are there any valid coupon codes right now for that site?

Then again I will probably swap out the stand in the immediate future, so if I am already going to be opening it up I can probably tape much of the black light bleed when I do that. But that still doesn't cover any other damage problems or pixel issues.

So that is my internal debate. I can swing the extra cost if its worth it. I just don't want to if doesn't make sense. Kind of wish I know the percentages of monitors that came across to the states fine vs those that have had pixel or blb issues.

Perhaps people here didn't compare them side-by-side, but they at least decided that PLS looked (sometimes worlds) better, so they must have compared one way or another.

Either way it is all subjective. I think most people myself included noticed the 1440p resolution on a 27" screen before anything else. I don't think many are putting it under the same microscope that you are.

I would have noticed it even without comparing it side by side. For me, the problem makes the monitor virtually unusable for anything that's color intensive (like digital art).



After talking to people here I'm beginning to think it's just normal behavior, though I never noticed something like this with the dell S2340L. On the other hand, it looks worse than the video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0y5Sv8fbcPo
But I tried capturing it on camera and the glow didn't look as nearly as bad on camera as it did in person.

Same for me too. I don't know what happened. It was fine yesterday when I looked at it, and it says the last edit was on 8/27 (so nothing has changed immediately).

@geoxile: Did you try measuring contrast ratio without applying any calibration? Adjust brightness from low to high and measure contrast ratio for each brightness level you set. Don't forget to mention the Black Level measured for each brightness level.

I advise you to use DispcalGUI for that, based on my own experience. Very easy to use. If other software like HCFR works for you, why not.

But take a breath and test things out step by step.

Contrast ratio is affected by BLB and calibration targets - I found that correcting my black level cut my contrast ratio from 1200:1 to 650:1 - leaving it uncorrected (no detectable difference to human eye) gave the best results.
