No, stuff does not turn yellow on any of the TN panels - that is why it is a refurb.

No, it won't. Return it for a replacement.

I've ordered grade B S2714DG monitor on 4th of June, got it 5th of June. Outside box seemed a bit damaged, inside contents all newly sealed and the screen seemed like it was never touched.

I connected the monitor via DP, first impressions instantly I was amazed since it has been first time since 2011 I upgraded monitor and old one is obviously dated and only 60hz. I noticed right away that the screen is way too bright for my liking but I figured I'll just get used to it.

Anyways, the problem.

After a day or two I started seeing issues, which were probably there before but I just failed to notice them as I was just amazed at difference from old monitor. First of, the screen has weirdly blurry text, I couldn't fix it with cleartype or anything, but that's least of my worries...at the same time it is really annoying. Second of all, the screen is making subtle horizontal lines (you can almost see sort of a refresh rate lines, but my hz is set to 144 and I changed to lower, didn't seem to help) and has a slight backlight flicker it seems, mostly noticeable on the top of the screen but it's throughout I am certain and it's in general hard to capture or see if the screen is bright. While this all happens on desktop, enabling G-SYNC and being in game it seems like it gets worse as I play on, if there are many explosions nearby or if I go at fast speed in a vehicle etc. HDMI connection however is flawless and nothing flickers, so where do you think the problem is at? I doubt it could be just a bad DP cable or driver issue since everything is up to date. Appreciate any help.

Here is a video of the backlight flicker, not entirely sure how to describe it since it doesn't exactly flicker but you know what I mean when you see this.

PS. I captured it with screen being upside down, as honestly the camera doesn't pick up the flicker when it's standing normally...well at least the camera I got.

Have you manually calibrated the screen? My Dell was messed up color and brightness wise until some guy posted his calibration settings and also links to various color-correct profiles.

Give it a shot before you write the monitor off.

I have mine for about 4 months 0 issues so far and the pic is beautiful. *knocks on wood*

I ended up getting this monitor for about $320 from Dell's outlet and it seems to have arrived perfect, can't find any dead pixels or ghosting issues. But I have an IPS Korean monitor next to it and I'm starting to have second thoughts on getting an IPS monitor instead. I ordered two of the Acer XB270HU's from acer recertified but both came garbage and I had to return both which is why I bought this dell.

Should I just suck it up and keep the Dell or return and try my hand at the Acer lottery again?

I changed my 1st monitor just because only one dead pixel, but located in the center. Now I have another monitor with another dead pixel, but located 2 cm to the left corner.
I could have lived perfectly with the previous pixel, as it was not bothering unless you try to find and look at it. This monitor is 2K, and one dead pixel is really a small issue.

It all depends , i wanted to give the IPS a go , i studied forums about ips and the ones with 144 hz gsync. PURE overpriced garbage, sure there were fully functional specimens but on few forums people complained about the all known issues (yellow backlight, dead pixels, dust under the AG coat , bleeds etc). I decided i don't want to loose my nerves sending monitors back and forth and decided to get the Dell , for my it was a very good decision. I calibrated it and went ham on games. My jaw was open wide when i tried 144 FPS in games with 0 panel problems.

It all comes down if you wanna "gamble" and send faulty monitors back and invest your nerves and time into it...

For those of who have recently purchased a refurb monitor. Can you view your Warranty status? It can't even find mine through the various methods that Dell allows for:

My S2716DG arrived yesterday. Really amazing monitor.
The only problem is that it came with one dark pixel (pink over a white background). I contacted dell and they told me that I need 6 pixels like this to return the monitor. sadsmiley.gif
I can barely see it, but I just wanted to have a perfect monitor. Anyway, I can leave with it.
