I had an A00 from Newegg and received an April A03 from Dell. Side by side I could see the coating difference, and normally I dont notice stuff like this.
Full brightness and white background the newer one looked whiter, more correct. The older darker coating had a shimmery rainbow effect to it.
On a side note I also noticed the pixel inversion now which I think the darker coating masked.
1 dead pixel in lower left as well. Ive had it up almost a 2 weeks now. Ill give it another dead pixel check to see if any new ones popped up.

Did you exchange yours with Dell?I would probably have to break mine. rolleyes.gif I would like to get the one with lighter coating.

Those old revisions with that nasty ass coating should be pulled off the shelves. At this point. I cant believe new ones are still out there with that revision. Newegg for example with their last fire sale of these. Those poor souls that received those and think they look like junk because of it.

Give it a real good look up close. They are hard to spot. I hope my 2 eventually go away over time. Since mine are adjacent. I found out a replacement could be made upon manager approval. But, I am burned out going through replacement after replacement trying to get a good one.

My A00 had some very weird bleed/blue hue along the bottom bezel - so that's what I went with to get my replacement. I would try to find something.. the A03 I received is much improved.

Yes. I reached out to Newegg and they only said they dont have A03. No mention of A02s. And slight correction, I meant I had an A01 from Newegg, not an A00. Sadly from what I can find out A00 is better than A01. It at least comes up as HDCP compliant over Displayport unlike A01.
Mine was still within 30 days so I could get a new one. Start the online chat and theyll have you do basic trouble shooting. I just kept telling them my screen randomly flickers, which it did. New one has done it but only once every day or so. The other was 2-3 a day.
I also had a smudge under the screen. Just tell them you see some black spots, dead pixels, and theres a bunch. I think over 5 or so for them to process it. Or at least thats what the rep said when I told her the new one out of the box had a dead pixel.

I did before. All white and put my face inches away and sway left and right since some I had on another monitor you could only really see from a different angle.

So thinking of picking this monitor up for around $397.00. off the dell outlet site. Is it worth it? If not, I may be considering the XB270HABPRZ acer recertified one for $340.00. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

If you're only getting the 90 day warranty I wouldn't say it's worth it. Same if you're getting a short warranty on the Acer. Personal opinion, but it seems like you have a sub $400 budget you're working with. If you can splurge on an extra $75 - $100 and wait for the S2716DG to go on sale or price match with a local store/competitor then you'll get the full warranty of 3 years. Can't say if the Acer goes on sale much.

Personally I don't like the idea of spending that kind of money and having a warranty that's only a few months - doesn't make too much sense to me, but that's up to you.

Note: I would suggest purchasing from Dell or Best Buy if possible since they seem to be handing out the A03 revision.

When I got my monitor I added the extra warrenty. Mine has a 8 year coverage I didn't wanna take a chance regardless if it's dell or Asus or Acer. Though I got mine when they were $1199 lol. Gota love Canada if you're rich if not this hobby isn't for you.

Watch out for Best Buy sale. Seems like it goes on sale often. I got mine for $450 there. Dell will also price match if you want it directly through them.
