You try and best match what your eyes see vs the camera by messing with exposure, iso, f/stop etc.

Well the last one I made is quite close (http://cdn.overclock.net/4/42/900x900px-LL-4274415e_20160203_210900_HDR.jpeg), one stop shutter speed lower it looked too dark, and this one looks too bright. This one I showed the very first, looks a bit too dark from what I can see http://cdn.overclock.net/b/b8/900x900px-LL-b8a4ef6f_20160203_011643_HDR.jpeg

So, please, could anyone help me with this? Should I return it? It's bothering me a bit. But what I'm interested in is panel quality that it is from near perfect to average. I do not want to keep a panel that looks worse than average, if you know what I mean. So the question is - is this worse than average?

You answered your own question. It only matters if it bothers you. Try to exchange and get a better one. I can say for sure you can get one that looks better than that. Took me two tries.

That's what I wanted to hear, thanks. It does bother me more or less, and if there is a way to get a better panel for my 600€, then I wish to get one.

I wonder if it's okay to just return the monitor I have, and then immediately order a new one from the same shop? Or will they get angry at me, or perhaps give me the same one back? Although, as far as I know they have to send it back to manufacturer for re-packaging, correct?

I did everything through Amazon Prime, so it was super simple. I can't comment on your stores policy.

If you go back a ways in this thread someone returned a monitor that had issues. Someone else complained about similar issues a few days later on their monitor. Turns out, that person got the other guys return as a new monitor! It was insane. They just packaged it up and sold it new. So yeah, be careful.

So I've had 2 of these monitors now, I don't know if it's the coating or the type of light they use, or my eyes. But does anyone else when staring at their screen and maybe a background does it feel like this monitor like has some sort of flicker to it? Not an interrupting on and off flicker just like a light flicker. I still am having a hard time getting used to this monitor and it's been like a month or two now.

I've had 2 now and I see the blb blue light at the bottom on both. The more tan pressure marks on the sides look terrible, look back at the pictures I posted of mine I called them butt marks but were way smaller. I honestly find these monitors very hard to look at, I've spen a lot of time with these monitors now and I dunno something about how white looks. I like G-sync, I tested it off and just used ULMB, and couldn't tell the difference. With both off gaming isn't is accurate unfortunately. If it was the same I would outright return this. Honestly I think we're getting gouged by the manufacturers with soso quality panels and manufacturing with expensive G-sync chips.

Anyone looking at this thread for gaming especially FPS reasons I would say find yourself a 1080p 24" monitor with G-sync. You'll save money and you wont have constant eye strain. If anything that mimics G-sync/Freesync on the horizon I can only hope.

Has anyone removed the anti-glare coating from their monitor or do we even know if the AG coating is removable? I really want to pick this up but feel like a glossy screen is a must on TN panels.

It's the coating, it's quite hard (3H) and is diffusing the light coming from the panel as well as preventing reflections. I see it too especially on light content. It's a common Dell UltraSharp coating, so I'm a bit puzzled why it made it to a TN gaming monitor. Since the panel seems to be closely related to the one in PG278Q I guess they didn't want to change it from "something that sold good".

This is one of the reasons I'm not running this monitor at 120cd/m², but at 100.

Unless it looks like this on this image (save it to desktop and open outside of the browser):

The issue on the movie was caused by a defective DP on the GPU and showed on other monitors as well.

I'm not sure that anything can be done about it apart from trying to take the AG off, which is extremely dangerous, voids warranty and probably will lead to the monitor ageing very fast...

This is a good gaming monitor after the gamma is corrected with profiling/ReShade, but not a good work monitor. I'd go with the AHVA-based models, but their quality control and excessive BLB/glow just put me off more than this coating wink.gif

I tested newer BenQ TN 24" monitors with G-SYNC as well and they have their own set of problems, colour reproduction and viewing angles (which were worse than this 27" TN) being the main ones.

Two things:

1) '3H' is a measure of hardness and does not indicate the haze value of the panel nor indicate how smooth its surface texture is. Even the lightest matte surfaces and many glossy surfaces are 3H.

2) Most modern Dell UltraSharps use a light matte screen surface now. All with 2560 x 1440 or higher resolution with a matte surface, for example.
