You will be unable to tolerate light on white background.
The level of discomfort will depend on the sensitivity of your eyes by bright lights. Most people will reduce the brightness to 30 others to 20.
I Had to set Brightness 20 Contrast 50 with Yellow's ICC profiles for avoiding eye strain when working with word or browsing on web.
Damn I'm always using brightness settings close to maximum, with this dell I used 77-85. It feels like my eyes are straining more with lower brightness settings. That's a bit weird.

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.

So Dell and Asus both use this disastrous headache causing coating? I do like G-sync don't get me wrong but I barely sit at my computer anymore. Honestly I think I'd go for a 24" 1080p with G-sync if I could w/out this like whatever wrong with the whites.

*Do you guys feel like staring at the screen on white or light grey like this text area is like cloudy but not cloudy? Sort of an optical illusion. Like it's perfectly smooth but maybe how the light comes through? The only time I really like this monitor is playing helldivers where there a lot of colors not white.

Only my phone I have it set to 0 brightness and I use a filter, my eyes are very sensitive to white/blue light whatever so this monitor is not a lot of fun. Honestly I feel like the colors are washed out by the brightness in everyone's icc profiles that I have tried. I know TN monitors aren't known for their color reproduction but I feel like my 9 year old HP w2207 displays them better in some cases because they aren't being just washed out. Makes me really wonder what the heck is going on in the monitor industry with these crappy panels they can get away selling for $800.

The screen surface is part of the panel and not something Dell or ASUS are applying. It's the same surface used on the 24" TN G-SYNC options (all current 144Hz TN panels) too. And yes I agree, it is obtrusive and loathsome.

Customers have simply learned and accepted less over the years.

Most LED's made it harder to get past sRBG(not like that matters because it is the standard). TW polarizers(reduce or even fully remove glow) for IPS screens are all but a memory now. Panels use more and more overdrive to get higher rated speeds at the cost of image artifacts and gaming monitors come with "gaming" presets that look awful to my eyes.

An important thing to know is that people are kind of resistant to change. so even if your old monitor was over-saturated(thus less washed out looking even if it was less accurate), you will see it as "better". With some time, you may adjust to a different monitor, but since no 2 are exactly the same, you will almost always have some reservations.

Even the VA panel I like so much may look awful to some users(since it is AdobeRGB and not sRGB the colors are actually too vibrant in many cases when used with srgb color space programs[that is about everything outside of photo editing]). My VA also had a rather grainy looking coating that never bothered me(at normal distance)

Did anyone tried to exchange the monitor because of the dead pixel/pixels? I found a small black one and I don't want to have to be looking since I paid over $500 for this monitor. I own few 30 inch Dell monitors and they've been perfect since day one (2009).

What about the Acer XB271HU ?

It has a significantly lighter and less grainy screen surface.

It will probably have to be Dell since it might be easier. I bought the monitor from Adorama and still have 3 days to exchange it. What do you think?

Dell says dark pixels are absolutely fine???
