Unfortunately it doesn't work like that. Even monitors that share the same panel can be set up very differently by different manufacturers or for different models from the same manufacturer. The inter-unit variation also means that copying somebody else's colour channel values can be counter-productive - even more so when you're talking about completely different models. Reducing brightness according to preferences and lighting and adjusting colour channels accordingly if you notice any particular tint overall is much more prudent.

Thanks for the feedback by the way Darylrese, it's nice to hear your positive impressions on this model. smile.gif

Cool thanks.

Moving Checkboard Test - FINE

Moving solid colours Test - FINE

Inversion Uniformity Test - Colour same but flashing every 2 seconds

Inversion Uniformity Test Extended - Bottom two grey, Top two green, flashing every 2 seconds and the whole screen has the same pattern on it.

Don't know what this means but doubt any of that will show in real world. I'm not in to synthetic benches if its never going to be an issue in real life.

Thanks for the review. I just ordered one of these here in the US, expecting it Monday. Mine will be going on an articulating wall mount, and the stand will go in a closet somewhere.


A few weeks ago, I took a chance on a re-certified Asus PG278Q, and the panel ended up being faulty. I do work in refurbishing, and realize the individual tech-levels can vary by leaps, and I'd be at the mercy of it. This person clearly didn't test the monitor for more than 5 minutes.

Also, in terms of build quality (besides the stand), I never felt like the PG278Q was worth it's $800 original price tag when I first pulled it from the box.


I was considering the Acer XB270HU for a few days, and then I saw it was listed as "under-review" and pulled from sale at Amazon...


And that brings me to the Dell. I was a little anxious with the lack of reviews, but I trust Dell not to F- this up more than I ever would Acer / Asus.



Great job on the review. It brings me some peace of mind on the decision.

I hope you like it as much as i do.

Like i said those coming from IPS it might not be the right move but everyone else, yes its a great monitor so far thumb.gif

Good luck with yours, let us know how you get on.

I've just shared your YouTube video on Twitter. Even as a seasoned reviewer I really enjoyed watching your video of the monitor and hearing your thoughts about it compared with the PG279Q. This sort of thing really helps me shape my recommendations for screens I have yet to use/review myself - so thanks for that. smile.gif

Nice one thanks testing this.

Also not sure if these are related but could you these couple of things from here:

2. And this > http://cdn.overclock.net/9/96/500x1000px-LL-963673fc_Compare_flash.jpeg on my old TN Swift i have noticed these lines quite often.
