Its just not worth it for all the QC problems Dell, Acer and Asus have. Especially considering the prices for these monitors. I am back on my trusty Dell U2415 @1920x1200. I am really bummed and upset with Dell. I like the monitor so much. I was willing to go for a 3rd try. But, then I got to thinking and said screw it.
My poor GTX 1080 @1200p
Hi Fatty. I'm sorry to hear the bad news.
Did you order directly from Dell ? My replacement is A03 with June manufactured date. Just like the one it replaced, the monitor is in perfect condition. No dead pixels, no bleeding.
Perhaps, you can request a refund and place an order directly from Dell requesting the latest revision.
EDIT: Ok. I asked my Dell contact, and she said that if you directly order from Dell, all monitors shipped out are the latest revisions which is A03.Edited by PowerK - 7/20/16 at 8:15pm
