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.
I worked for a year at Bestbuy and hadnt encountered any of those cases where they kill the clock so a warranty expires. (but I have seen countless other "dirty" tactics.) Although they did give the run around to another employee with the plan, everything legit, something like 2-3 months before finally giving the OK for a new laptop.
Sad to see it went down like that. I wouldn't have even tried had it not been for the progress you had made.
Almost makes you want to get the Bestbuy plan. If its a replacement, I go to town on those. Return stuff 10 months in for another, just buy the plan again. others they have to try to fix it, so i dont know 100% what they would classify the monitor as.
However as for the plan one would thing the return process would be from the timestamp you began. Like a rebate saying it has to be post marked by XX.
Since you had the ticket open, it should be from that point.

Best Buy was a rock star during this whole process. I have zero complaints with them. Its those bastards at Dell that tried to screw me over. Not BB.

I got mine a few days ago, and it has a weird problem. If I use g-sync and the FPS drops below ~85 fps (aka 85hz) a flashing green pixel appears. On 60hz the green dot is very bright, on 85hz it's almost invisible, but if the frame rate is fluctuating between 60 and 100 fps, then this green "flashing" pixel is quite annoying. I will try to talk with Dell support about this problem.

I had an A02 with BLB on the bottom so I exchanged it for another A02.

With my original monitor, I calibrated it using Fatty's settings and everything looked good even when gaming, (playing Rainbow Six Seige). With the new monitor, (calibrated the same),once I launch the game it changes the color settings (?) looks less vibrant and then stays like that even after I exit the game. I then have to go back into Color Management and reset the ICC profile as default for it to fix the colors.

How can I prevent this? Why wasn't this happening on the first one?

So far I'm not so sure 1440p is for me. I feel like I have to work harder to track targets. Which makes sense due to the larger screen size and more pixels. I upped the mouse sensitivity to accommodate too. Not sure if I'm supposed to.

My panel is decent I suppose. I'm not overwhelmingly thrilled by it but it's better than what seems to be the average based on this thread alone.

Perhaps 1080p is where I need to stay.

Are you having trouble seeing things or is it just keeping up with the mouse?

The clarity is great, but since there's more screen and essentially more on the screen I feel like my eyes are busier than ever lol.

I've been a 24" 1080p user forever. Perhaps it's a matter of time to acclimate.

My card cant push 1440p well so I'm playing Overwatch at 1080p@144 still. I know the scaling isnt exact but it seems fine to me.
Initially it felt like I had to lower my sensitivity. I ended up leaving it as is, I only have a small 3M mouse pad. For reference Im on 1800 dpi, 11 sensitivity in Overwatch.

You're using the CM Storm Xornet? Time for an upgrade perhaps, to a higher DPI 3090/3310/3366 mouse?

I'm currently using it at its lowest doing too. 800 iirc. I have always like lower sensitivity.

I can't say for sure if that'sit or not. I think I just have to get use to it.

Just FYI, I play competitive fps titles 99% of the time. For anything else this monitor had been pretty good.

BF, CSGO, Overwatch, stuff like that.
