Dell S2716DG 1440 144 Hz G-Sync Owners Thread - Page 267

post #2661 of 5224
Well the replacement just arrived.
I set the brightness to 100% on the A01 and A03 and I can definitely see a difference in the side by side. The A03 is much clearer. Like on a white background, like this sites text entry area, its nice and consistently white. The A01 I guess because its grainier matte like people say, it has this rainbowy kind of look to it. Like I'm seeing multiple colors as opposed to the A03 white.
However there is a dead pixel. Ive only noticed 1 so far and as opposed to the the other "dead" pixels I encountered, i assume those were really just stuck as this one is black across all colors. White, red, green and blue. Its in the lower left corner about 29mm in, 36mm up. With the stress of returns, I think I will just settle with this as I don't know how Dell is with multi returns, or take my chances and get it in another area even worse.
But I recall Fatty saying his was beautiful and developed some dead pixels a few days in so I'll see.

Yes my first one I thought was a Jesus unit. I mean it was PERFECT. Then with in a 24-48 hour period. It had developed a dead pixel right in the middle of the screen. It went back because of that. If it was off to the side or something that was not noticeable. I would have kept it. I also sent it back because being brand new. More could have potentially popped up.

At the same time. It also could have just gone away. Its like playing a game. Risk more popping up. The one staying dead forever. Or over time. It could come back to life. Sounds like overall. You got a good unit 9/10. I would have rated my first one the same. They did not pull a fast one on you right? Everything was brand new in a retail box etc?

It was brand new. The side opening was punched in, as the Fedex guy opted to use that handle (why use the handle to hold it when you can use this awkward side hole that is ripping the box?). In side that hole I found they shoved the return label and packing info.
Tape was still intact, and everything inside looked normal.
I contacted the Dell agent and they said 1 pixel should be acceptable, and 5-6 they will look into another replacement
Again, I already did a return game with newegg for an Acer TN, and this should be fine. Even my wife said it doesnt look bad in that one corner.

I've never done proper calibrations so I'm trying your ICC profile now. I see your other post mentioned brightness 22. Is that some normal benchmark range? I have mine up to 35 and think it looks good. 22 is a bit low and everything looks dark.
Also did you adjust any of the preset colors? I was following tftcentrals original suggestion, Red 97, G 99, Blue 96.
Otherwise time to take it through some overwatch and witcher 3. See if I get flickering.
Edit: I really hope it's unrelated but I loaded up Overwatch and as soon as I hit play my screen went all red, no text, and PC unresponsive. Rebooted and looks like new video drivers, so again I hope that was isolated.

What month is the build date on the new monitor? June? July possibly? That brightness level is the measured light output. The standard is 120cm. Targets are always 120cm, D65, 2.2 gamma. Let your eyes adjust. It will get better. Of course you can go brighter etc. But, that causes unneeded eye strain and its just extra light output for your eyes one does not need.

Many people complain about darkness. They are not use to a properly calibrated monitor and just wing it with their own eyes. What they feel is right to them. I done nothing else extra accept turning off deep sleep mode with in the monitor settings. Everything else was factory setting calibrated from there. Colormunki Display did all the work for me. All I needed to do was adjust brightness to 120cm which was the target.

Its April 2016.
I brought it down to 25%, not too bad. I guess when directly compared to the other brightness it looked absurdly low. ill slowly work my way down. 3686400 pixels and of course 1 has to be bad...
But i think i know what youre talking about. my last monitor was on default, I think around 70. which seemed fine. Come night time around 8pm I had to get a lamp to put on or it get eye aches.
Then I realized when I brought it down to 35 or so, it wasnt as bad.
At least now its dark, 22 seems fine.

I did the settings TFTcentral recommends. It's okay. I'm worried to put it next to my VA panel benq's. Colors are little short.

Also, I know people mentioned the pixel inversion from scrolling but I always forgot to check for that, not something I remember seeing naturally.
Now I was on a site and scrolling and saw it clear as day.
I wonder if because the darker coating kind of masked that and now that the whites are more consistent, it stands out more.
I already shipped the other back but cant do a comparison.
Fatty, any recommendation on brightness in the dark?
Still leave it around 22 at all times or bring it down more? I took it to 1% and still seemed bright in a fully dark room, so i guess Ill always need a background lamp/light on to alleviate it.

The coating was very thick on earlier versions. You are most likely right. It helped mask it some what. Certainly would be more pronounced now though with a super light coating. Which is exactly what they are using on the newer revisions. I measured at 120cm and came up with those results for 24/7 use. I don't change mine. Going beyond that any ways is just putting more strain on your eyes that is unnecessary. Some even like below the standard of 100cm. I myself never done that and always calibrate for 120cm. Perfect for day and night use imo.

As far as I know, the standard of 120 needs a standard ambient (in room) brightness too.

Hello.

Sorry English is not my Main language, but ill do my best.

I just got this Monitor From Amazon through a retailer - Adorama Camera. (amazon did not have stock at the time -.- ) Anyways when i got the box it was pretty Banged up. The corners was badly damaged and right away i got nervous. The seal was there so i cut the seal. First thing i did was check the model number and i could not believe it. an A00. How could these still be in stock?

Already feeling bad i decided to check the components The bottom stand had some type of rubber dirt on the connecting Pins. How could there be dirt there if it was rapped up? This felt Used rather then new. I then checked the Monitor and the screen was popped out from the back casing i'm guessing due to terrible packaging and rough shipping. I had to "snap" it back into place. The monitor also has a chip on the matte screen right side of the dell logo. its pretty visible.

I then plugged in the display through DP and everything turned on. The monitor is HDCP working according to Nvidia control panel. I put the brightness to 100% and no buzzing noise for now. The AG coating is heavy and the colors really looked washed out. No Dead Pixels. I then applied the icc from TFTcentral and it did improve it, still everything looks granny due to the AG. but its much better then out of the box. Best TN i have used though.

What should i do. I dont like this heavy AG coating and due to the fact i have to snap the monitor back in place I'm scared of future damage. The chip on the bezel is quite annoying as well. Does this Warrent a return? Am i in good Standings to go through Dell for a replacement? What Do you guys think?
