How did you get it that cheap? My promo code of shop15 gets it down to $519.99

Are you suggesting that IPS is better? My IPS monitor does have good black level however the IPS glow in all 4 corners takes away from it, not really worth only having good blacks in the middle of your screen while all corners are horrible

If you use your debit card they give you money off? I didn't know that however it's now $569.99 so either way I couldn't get it as cheap as you did anyways

BTW. Why would you want to waive the shipping back? God forbid you need to return it you'll have to pay to return then

Just a slight follow up to my shipping "incident" with Jet.com. I just got home from a week long trip and was able to deal with this situation. I was offered shipment back to Jet.com, but opted to wait and speak with Dell first. I contacted them yesterday morning and spoke with a nice technical support person. They initially told me that Jet.com would have to replace it for me, but I fought back that I needed a monitor now, and that I didn't trust their service after my initial shipment. I told them I wanted to keep the monitor instead of a full return since I do like it, and I just want Dell to replace it. Initially I was told it might be a refrub in that case, but eventually the service rep came back on the phone and told me that since it was less than 30 days old, and that this was a "special" case with my retailer they would assume ownership of my screen and ship me a brand new monitor. I presume the shipment method is overnight as I was told I will have the new monitor by Monday, Tuesday at the latest. He informed me that if I don't get it by then to email him personally and he will look into it for me.

Dell customer service thus far has been outstanding on this issue for me. I fully trust that if I run into any issues in the future with the screen they will step up to the plate far better than any of those other foreign manufacturers.

I will follow up with my new screen when I get it this week.

I have just compared the Dell S2716DG and Acer XB271HU side by side and neither are perfect!

Here's some screen shots comparing the two. The Dell S2716DG is a 8bit TN (On the left) has been calibrated using the nvidia control panel and Acer IPS (On the right) at stock expect for 32% brightness.

Microsoft Word 2016. Both monitors display some uniformity issues here. The Dell displays white with a 'yellow' tinge and has a 'shimer' effect thanks to the heavy coating on the Dell. Overall it's 1 - 0 to the Acer.



Comparing colours on desktop wallpapers. Here the gamma is 'crushed' on the Dell and clearer, more vibrant on the Acer. Remember the Acer hasn't been calibrated yet but 'Out of the box' it is better. 2- 0 to the Acer.



Here the wallpaper colours are almost identical. The only difference i can see is the image being slightly washed out compared to the Dell but its marginal. Its a tie on this one!



Black level testing. The Dell nice and black, no backlight bleed. The Acer exhibits some backlight bleed down the right hand side at top and bottom but its minor and could be IPS glow related as it improves with distance. Overall the blacks are deeper on the TN. The Dell wins this one.



White level testing. Neither panel has excellent uniformity. Both have brighter patches in the corners and towards the edges of the screen. White is 'whiter' on the Acer and has an overall 'yellow' look about it on the Dell. The Acer wins this round.



Individually they look similar in terms of white level with a slight edge going to the Acer.

DELL



ACER



Green level testing very hard to notice a difference once the Dell has been calibrated. Its a tie!



Blue level testing. The blue is more vibrant on the Acer.



Real use white levels are quite different as can be seen in these screen shots.





4K Video to compare colours



Overall i am prefering the Acer at this point. Even though it has some uniformity issues with white and also some minor bleed down the right hand side, the image quality is better overall thanks to the improved colours and lighter coating. The AG coating on the Dell really distorts the image but the colours are impressive for a TN panel. The Acer boasts 165hz refresh rate, an increase of 21hz over the Dell and whilst minor, it is that tiny bit smoother. Also i am a bit of a frames per second nut so getting more from my rig is nice.

Astetics goes to the Dell. The build quality is excellent and i love the 'minimalistic' feel about it. The Acer is nice but has 'Gamer' detailing which i dislike personally. If i keep the Acer, i will be fitting it on a desk mount to get rid of the red stand and feet.

Overall, i'll give it a week with the Acer and if i can live with the white uniformity and backlight bleed on the right hand side i think i will keep it and sell the Dell.

It's important to note, unfortunately there is no 'perfect' panel on the market today when it comes to 1440p, 144hz and G-Sync. All have their own problems and unfortunately we are forced to either 'settle' with one or keep trying in the hope a perfect panel exists. Personally now having gone through 3 x ASUS PG279Q's, 2 x Dell S2716DG's and now 1 x Acer XB271HU, i'd say at this stage the perfect panel doesnt exist. The Acer is the closest i have come though so might be a keeper until the market matures and OLED becomes available to us.

Let me know what you guys think. thumb.gif

I'm shocked that the white on the Dell looks that yellow compared to the Acer. That really makes me think twice now. You sure the Dell wasn't on a "warm" color pre-set?

It is quite strange given that my S2716DG has a default colour temperature of >7000K centrally. It could also be that the ASUS in this comparison has a very cool colour temperature and therefore by comparison the Dell looks rather warm as a result. I mean I'm looking at these photos on a Dell S2716DG as it happens and the apparent difference from the photos is just odd.
