Try to record a video of the monitor instead and snap a photo of the video. Should give a slightly more accurate representation of what you actually see in person, unless you can testify that that is exactly how it looks like in person as in the first photo you posted. Bottom line is if you're happy with it then enjoy it and dont worry what others may think about the panel's quality.

Also Dell is currently having a pretty good promotion for the monitor. $600 for the monitor + a $200 gift card that you can either use or flip for cash for like $160-180 effectively bring the monitor into the $400 range

Yeah, so you're free to browse and see if theres anything there you'd wanna ever get, otherwise just sell it on ebay for $180, after fees you're left with about $156, and can pocket that.

I am ready to pay this price if :
- No QC issues (No dead,hot, stuck pixels, no dust, no bright spot, good uniformity)
- No back-light bleed, only ips glow.
- hoping no ugly AG coating...
- calibrated from the factory

i would not tolerate any visible defects , Not at this price wink.gif

Thats not backlight bleed, thats just standard back lighting. Its how the panel technology works and is totally normal.

Adjusting exposure time helps get a more realistic idea of what backlight bleed looks like.

Example image(exposure adjusted until it was what I see) comparing VA to IPS(glow). Even then your own monitor color and brightness can affect the image.

Hello everyone ,

first I would like to thank everyone for constructive and good posts , got my Dell yesterday for about 680 € with shipping , calibrated it after few hours I started it.

So far can't see any bleed, dead pixels or distortion, i applied the profiles I found on this thread and the colors are nice ,not like on my 4 year old Samsung T27A300 also TN but the colors on that one are more brighter and the picture is waaaay sharper. I hope thats due its age.

First I wanted an IPS (Asus PG and Acer XB) but after studying those treads i was like W T F , every review i've seen glorifies those monitors like some kind of divinity but the sad reality is sad lol.

Once again thank you guys , if there is any way to further improve the overall picture sharpness and colors i'd appreciate it greatly. thumb.gif

If you are saying the old monitor is brighter and sharper it may be smaller(thus sharper at the same resolution.). At one point monitors tried to reach a different color space so some colors that look brighter or more vibrant may have actually been inaccurate.

If you have an Nvidia card you can try to increase the Digital vibrance(Nvidia control panel -> Display -> Adjust desktop color settings) a bit to see if you like that.
