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?
I had gotten an A01 from Newegg which has all sorts of problems. I contacted newegg and they said they didnt have any A03, and I asked about A02 and then they offered me the Acer TN instead.
In the end I went through Dell for a warranty swap. They said they only put out the newest models and mine was indeed A03.
It seems to me they are trying to dump stock whether to make room for some new monitors or just to get on the bandwagon of the new nvidia cards.
The choice is yours. Either go with a full refund as they still make money off you for a bad product, or keep and try and swap with Dell.
I think I would just return it since it's damaged and sounds used like you stated.

Can you confirm that the coating is lighter??

I can't believe they would do 3 revisions of this monitor to fix various problems, but completely skip on fixing the overly aggressive overdrive. I would have totally gotten an A03 if they toned that down on top of the lighter coating. What are they thinking?

I don't see a point in considering the smaller variant. The price between them is too close. 24 --> 27" is a pretty big difference, and the larger screen will definitely be a bit more immersive. The slightly increased pixel density of 1440p 24" would go mostly unnoticed. 27" 1440p is a great balance. If Dell and the manufacturer of the new panel had any sense it will be using a light matte coating, but i wouldn't get my hopes up. I think its rather interesting that the newer revision of the 27" one is using a lighter coat. Typically that sort of thing doesn't change with revisions, its more internal tweaks and fixes.

Obviously I wouldnt buy it at full msrp of $570. But the 27 inch version has an msrp of 799 yet can be found for under 500 often. I would pick one up for my 2nd computer if it was well discounted. The table i am using for it barely holds a 24 inch screen with a mini itx system next to it so unless i plan to put the computer on the floor there is no room for a 27 inch display.

Anyone brave enough to do the wet paper towel trick to their monitor to remove its matte anti-glare screen?

Considering 24" 1080p 144hz gsync monitors sell for $400 i won't count on this one going lower than $400 ever, it will most likely be the same as the bigger one around the $500 range during sales. If you cannot accommodate a 27" and need a smaller display then i understand, otherwise the bigger one is a better buy.

I've thought about it if i were to pick one up again, but its very likely it will not work. There isn't much harm in trying as you will either be able to easily peel the film off, or you wont in which case if it doesnt start coming up easily you should stop right there before you damage the thing. By that i mean after letting it soak for 6 hours minimum, try to get one of the corners of the film up, if you cant get it to budge with your fingernail after some attempts best to leave it alone. Personally i dont think i'd risk it though, if rumors are true that the newest revision is a lighter AG then its better to deal with it. I can understand wanting to remove the awfully thick one on the earlier models.

I'm no pro, but when I had them side by side I could see a difference, as could my wife.
Same settings, 100 brightness with a white background, the newer one was a more consistent, steady white. The A01 then looked to me to bit a bit more rainbowy, not sure how to describe. As you look at it, it would shimmer a bit.
However this is also the first time I noticed the pixel inversion when scrolling, most likely because of the lighter screen.
I'm an anomaly as I'm still on an AMD card in the meantime, but using cyberlinks BD advisor the A01 failed HDCP, but the A03 passed.
So I cant vouch for gsync or ulbm.

Dell is a real piece of work. They tried to screw me over and almost did. I have been waiting over a week with 2 weekends passing as promised by Dell. For a brand new replacement. What do I get today? Another email delay 3-5 days to even process it again and start over. Because they are having "issues". This is not even the tip of it. You guys have no idea. To cut it short. I had to drive 60 miles that is to and from the house. The one and only Best Buy near me. To get another brand new replacement. They actually had some. 3 left. Its a A03 June 2016 build. So far so good.

But, I have only had it a few hours now. TheGlow Just think. You bought, asked for another brand new replacement and got it before me. While I was still waiting with nothing going on. How the hell does that even happen? I am happy for you. Don't take it any other way. But, man when I read that post from you. I was boiling at Dell. The only reason I could make this return in time with Best Buy. I am an elite member and have 30 days. If I had missed that. Which was coming up in a few days. I would still be at the mercy of Dell.

This is my 3rd replacement. For others not keeping up. My first one developed a dead pixel right in the middle of the screen. My second one came with dirt/smudge physically underneath the screen. I finally hope to have struck gold this time. rolleyes.gif I honestly think Dell was delaying as long as possible to get out of not sending me a brand new replacement for what ever reason. Because it has to be setup with in the 30 days of the invoice when buying brand new. Time was ticking away.
