Wat is dis - Page 2

post #11 of 19
I'm not even 100% sure that's a dead pixel - it's half-lit, the bottom "half" of the pixel looks OK, the top half is darkened. I still think it might possibly be something sandwiched between the panel and the back light, or a backlight film defect.

Either way, if it bothers you enough, and you can take it back to where you bought it - an exchange might be in order. If you got it mail order, it's going to cost you shipping either way, you will probably have better luck with a Samsung RMA if they'll allow it.

I bought it in a Polish store. I'm from Poland and we don't have Amazon (sad panda) frown.gif

They have a 14-day return policy, i technically have 2 days to return it. Now... do i tell them it has badpixels or do i just return it, send it back and buy a new one...

If you got it from newegg, just email them after setting up the RMA and ask for a shipping label. Tell them you got one last time you did it, and would like one this time.

I have always gotten a free UPS label by doing so. Never once have been denied.

Polish store. Just return it then. Don't tell them anything is wrong. Just tell them you do not want it. Simple as that.

Newegg actually ships to Poland but the taxes would be just as high as the price of the monitor haha.

Back to the topic - Sending it back would be faster tho imo. That's what im gonna do.

One more question guys: I am now scared of Samsung monitors, should i go LG?

Yea, noticed that too. Do all AH-IPS panels suffer from it? I guess it would be the case since they're made by LG.

I'll be returning the monitor next week.

I've been searching for a different monitor, and i'm amazed with S2415H from Dell, always loved the glossy screens. Does anyone have that monitor and can share his impressions?
