This sounds like an issue with the AG coating. If your Samsung has a less grainy coating it would look clearer and sharper than the Dell. Not to mention the density of the Dell makes the effect worse.

Still being that its TN it will exhibit those shifts, you at least get no glow, compared to an IPS, and slightly faster response times that equate to an even smoother experience. The color accuracy is very good on these 1440p TNs, but they're masked by an aggressive AG. I'll most likely end up removing the AG coating on this monitor if i do pick it up. I wish it was available locally, the XB271HU is, but $800 is a bit of a tough pill to swallow compared to about $500~ for this.

If the Acer was a guarantee then i would've already gotten one, but we all know that isn't the case. This Dell isn't even a guarantee, but odds are better you get a screen with good uniformity, little to no bleed, obviously no glow, and hopefully no dead pixels. The acer gives you guaranteed glow, probably guaranteed bleed that varies in intensity, as well as still the possibility of debris being sandwiched between the panel and backlight.

I am agree, nowadays, we aren't secured when we buys new monitors. If i went to DELL because i wanted to avoid this lottery panel from ACER and getting very good warranty.
But i would never suspect DELL being part of this process after 2 tries. Had very QC issues (at least 3 dead pixels on both, bleed on right corner only for 1 and 1 refurbished screen.)

Consumers need to know better, or else companies won t change and use bait-and-switch tactics to those unsuspecting consumers.

I didn t exchange by a 3rd one because the trust has been broken with DELL monitor, I paid mostly $700 for a TN and expecting the golden TN display.
Also i was very disappointed by color banding, it kills immersion in games.
Maybe i am an unlucky boy, will see next march with viewsonic.

Wow if you guys want to experience pixel inversion with this monitor, play Street Fighter V! Vertical lines all over it due to being a fast paced game frown.gif Just aswell the game is rubbish so wont be playing it anyway lol

both of them have non-reflective coating , but samsung has a tiny bit less . Perhaps that's the problem, does anyone know if there is some burn in time that has to pass to get the screen to its full potential, since i've god a brand new factory unit.

Can anyone tell me how long DisplayPort cable is that comes with monitor? I've googled with no results and waiting to receive mine that I ordered on Sunday.

Just ordered an AOC G2460PG for $350 out the door. Yeah its 24" and 1080p, but its $200 less than this dell that has a heavy matte coating, pixel inversion issues, a rather poor OD implementation, with the only saving grace being 27" 1440p, but the bigger size and resolution isn't worth the extra cash with the issues that it does have. I'll still have a 2795QHD to use on the side for non gaming tasks, so i'll just be hunkering down with this setup until OLED monitors come out and OLED prices in general come down so give or take a few years from now.

It was either gonna be this AOC or the LG 24gm77 with the latter actually being a slightly better panel, but for $50 more G-sync was totally worth it with a still fairly decent TN panel.

Goodluck to anyone that rolls the dice with this Dell rolleyes.gif
