The AG coating is definitely lighter on the Dell than the Swift.

I returned my Swift a long time ago after the pixel inversion issue which then after a week of use killed the panel.

I used to strain and notice the "shimmer" from the Swift coating, I am perfectly fine with the Dell coating so it's definitely lighter.

Care to give us a brief review on the Dell compared to the Swift?

I am 100% satisfied, which was never the case with my old PG278Q or the XB270HU for that matter.

Sure, IPS(XB270HU) has better colors.. but when you have that stupid glow in the corners that you notice every time you play something dark? (which i do ALOT of) it was a no brainer to return it. Why settle on a product you paid top dollar for if you aren't happy with the product.

Picture quality on the Dell is fantastic considering i haven't even calibrated it. Coating is nowhere near as strong as the Swift plus it comes with a HDMI port and even has speakers built into it (kind of a waste but eh) if you wanted that.

The stand is perfect, It is rock solid. Also love the fact the power on button is a nice not intrusive white color. OSD is simple enough to navigate and get you where you need to be.

Even tested a PS4 through the HDMI port and the quality isn't even half bad! I was expecting something way less than what i saw.

I am 100% satisfied with this monitor. I am extremely picky and hated the AG coating on the Swift, hated the inversion on the Swift, hated the IPS glow of the XB270HU, and hated the stand on the XB270HU.

I settled for the XB270H-G (1080P G SYNC) because of the dramas with 1440p/144hz/g-sync and wasn't going to go back since i've been burned twice. That was before purchasing this. Considering how many people are happy with the Dell, you can tell the QC is much better than Acer or Asus.

And i won't ever be buying from Acer/Asus in the monitor department until they get their act together, especially after the hoops i had to jump through in order to get a refund out of both companies and apparent lack of QC from BOTH companies.

Overall rating for the Dell 9/10. Misses out on the 10/10 because it isn't OLED thumb.gif

Sounds very positive. I'm not sure how Dell managed to get a lighter coating on there, unless AUO themselves did so at request perhaps. And if it doesn't suffer with the pixel inversion issue... well, it's making me wonder if they are even using the same panel?? I will look forward to the TFT Central review anyway... that will be the real test I reckon, and they'll be able to confirm for certain if it's using the same panel or not (even if the coating has been changed). At least with Dell the QC and CS side of things is usually very solid, so that's a big plus. Just a shame it's TN.

Nice man! If my new replacement PG tomorrow doesn't cut again with glow I am going for Dell. Thanks for review mate! I am still gonna wait for TFT but I much more prefer honest user reviews with store units than cherry picked by producer.

Can you please post some pure white, black images from your Dell and also some colorfull screenshots from some game? That be awesome to see!

Cheers.
