I can barely see it, but I just wanted to have a perfect monitor. Anyway, I can leave with it.
I'm not sure but you might be able to swap it with the vendor. I had an Acer I returned but it had 3 dead pixels and a backlight prob where an area was dark for a whole day.
Nothing fancy

I bought it directly from Dell. And it is actually written on Dell's return policy that it is needed 6 bad pixels to have a return.
But I dont care, I cant even see the pixel, only if I look for it.

And the monitor has no backlight leak at all, not even a slight amount. So I will keep it!! biggrin.gif

I've read about pixel inversion and visible vertical lines at this monitor on other boards, but these reports are about 5 month old. Has this Dell still these problems?

Yes, there have been no confirmed revisions to address these issues. The monitor uses a fairly aggressive overdrive setting that cannot be reduced and this causes fairly obvious inverse ghosting, in particular black text/objects on white backgrounds. I found it very distracting back when i tried the monitor out.

I had the same, I went at it with Chat support then emailed them again. Dell replaced my monitor and the second one is every bit as good as the first, except no dead pixels this time. If you're within 30 days, you can alternatively just return it and get a refund. Then buy again.

So this monitor has still these problems? That's not good frown.gif I have thinked about to get this monitor as an alternative for my BenQ XL2730Z, which i send back due to strong BLB issues with three of them.

Has every Dell S2716DG this problem?

That's a good option, but I live in brazil and if I buy a new one now it would arrive to me only at the end of August. And seriously, I cant go back to my old 60hrz TV. sadsmiley.gif

I just got this monitor last week. ZERO issues, no dead pixel or any other flaws...so far. I am pleased, this is my first TN panel with 144Hz. I do like the colors better on my old IPS but I am sure I will get used to the washed out colors soon. The 144Hz is making my overwatch experience much nicer.

I use Nvidia Control Panel to reduce color saturation to 30% to make it more real and less washed colors.
