I'm pretty sure. The power button is located near the lower right hand corner, right ? No matter how hard I press it, it just doesn't work. (Other OSD related buttons works fine). If my PC is turned off, the monitor goes into stand by mode. However, I can't turn the monitor off manually using the power button. frown.gif Defective power button, it seems.

Because its one of the worst power buttons I have ever used. Its so tiny and flat. You have to use a finger nail to use it. Any ways. Sounds like some bad luck.

My current (ancient) monitor supports DDC/CI and as such allows me to adjust screen brightness through a set of spare hotkeys on my keyboard. Does this monitor support DDC/CI and allow brightness control via windows or is it only adjustable through the OSD?

I never turn it off. But, it powers on and off just fine when using the button.

For the record, it turned out that the fault was on me. The power button worked correctly when I went home and tried after work yesterday. Stupid me. tongue.gif
Yesterday, I contacted Dell (I bought directly from Dell website) and they said they would send me a replacement today. Well... I might as well just get it replaced.
FWIW, the 2716DG I currently have is Revision A03 with May 2016 manufactured date.

If Dell sends you older stock or the exact same version/manufacture date. I would keep what you have. Might end up with a bad one. Never know. I am curious to know what version you end up with Dell directly. Let us know if you don't mind when you get it.

Hmmm i had one of these monitors before not sure what revision probably A00 or A01, it had buzzing at certrain brightness, and the overshoot of black text on white backgrounds when scrolling was very distracting. I wonder what exactly the A03 fixed, people are also saying a lighter matte coating? That's actually very surprising if true.

No stuck or dead pixels, no buzzing, hdcp compliant and a very recent build. Revision A03 built in May 2016. Once setup and calibrated. I fired up The Witcher 3 and my jaw hit the floor. Stunning, glorious etc etc. Wow just WOW! Gsync is absolutely amazing and worth every penny.

Smooth as butter. Coming from my previous Dell U2415 IPS panel. I can certainly notice color shift. I can deal with it though. Its really not that bad and all about how you sit or look up etc. I certainly will not miss the IPS glow. Blacks are blacks. Its nice. Out of the box. The gamma was horrendous. No surprise here and well documented. After calibration. Comparing the results and seeing the before and after.

It was a dramatic difference. I cant stress that enough. Its very close to my IPS monitor now. TN has come a longggggggg way. WOW! To say how pleased I am with this beauty is a understatement! Calibration was done by Colormunki Display. I would only suggest using my profile if you have a A03 version panel. A01 and A02 could be really different. I am not sure. You are still free to try it out if you like regardless of version!

Targets

2.2 gamma, D65, 120cm brightness

Calibration done using factory defaults. RESET to factory defaults first. All you need to do is adjust brightness and load the ICC profile. Factory brightness was blazing at a whopping 298cm!

Results

Brightness 21 which put it at 118cm. 22 brightness put it at 121cm. Leave contrast alone at factory level. Its fine and does not need adjustment.

ICC profile attached. Follow this article to activate it with in Windows. https://pcmonitors.info/articles/using-icc-profiles-in-windows/

http://www.filedropper.com/dells2716dgd65_1 ICC profile

**EDIT** post updated

ICC profile updated with new brightness numbers as well. Initially when first getting it and calibrating. I had lights on in my room. It was picking slightly more light. Factory reading went from initially 304cm to 298cm now with all lights off. Which in turn changed the brightness levels very slightly when re calibrating.

Hi Fatty,

I just checked my box and it turns out I have an A03 revision. I ordered this 2 months ago from Dell Canada direct and it's an April 2016 build. I haven't looked into ICC profiles and whatnot until now and noticed TFT Central is based on an A00 revision. I'd like to try your calibration. Am I right to do as follows:

Reset factory defaults
Change brightness to 21 or 22
Load the ICC profile
???
Profit

Thanks,
Sexpot

When I talked to Dell support, I said that my current monitor was A03 revision with May 2016 manufactured date. If the replacement is older, it would go straight back. They acknowledged. Let's see. Heh biggrin.gif

Hi, yes that is correct. The main thing though. Make sure to follow step 6 and 7 https://pcmonitors.info/articles/using-icc-profiles-in-windows/ Many people miss that part. They just load the profile and wonder why noting changed. Once done. Sign out or reboot and the new profile should load up. I just noticed I need to update my post. You don't need to do a factory reset on the monitor. I only do that myself when calibrating. Sorry about that and will edit it.

Hope fully you end up with good results and it will look much better to you.
