Congrats, your S2716DG now looks better than any of the 2560 x 1440 144 Hz IPS monitors. Nice work! I wish I had the stones to attempt that, and whatever it takes to not screw it up.

Hey guys, I plan on getting the monitor within the next month and I have a quick question. I've been reading that in order for this monitor to look good I need to set up a color profile, but some games might overwrite it and I would need to install a program to force it so it isnt overwritten. I wanted to know if this works 100% of the time ( I don't want to waste money on this monitor if it's not gonna work right 100% of the time) and what program would I have to use?

Thanks! Scary as hell, because i didn't have anything to reference online, but the videos that had someone removing the AG coating on another Dell monitor did help.


I wish i have taken pictures to show you guys, but i figure, if i broke it, i didn't want to waste time on it.

To anyone who wants to take a chance. What I meant by "easy" was you do not need to take the whole monitor apart. You just need to take the back off so you can get to the corners. You should take the bottom piece off that has the Dell logo on it. DO NOT open the front of the screen, the actual monitor is behind that. What you see in the front right now is the AG coating.

What I mean by do not open the front, there was the actual monitor behind it, don't know what they were, but there was a plastic piece in the back, the glass and then another piece in front of it.

So, after what i said and you want to take the chance, soak those towels and leave them on there for at leave four hours like suggested. Longer probably better. I was impatience to tell you guys the truth and probably left it on for 2.5 hours. I was able to pull the AG coating off, but it did take some effort. If I kept it on longer, I'm sure it would probably be effortless.

I should mention that you should use bottle or distilled water. I had drinking water so i just used that. smile.gif


Ok, now after i took the AG coating off, there was left over glue on the monitor. I was like oh damn....WTH! So, again, I took a chance and decided to go ahead and wipe the glue off. *IMPORTANT* Use microfiber cloths. One that you keep damp and another to wipe. Wipe on and Wipe off. You will need to wipe like you are wet sandpapering. You will notice the glue coming off, but you will need to put some effort. Not too much pressure. Just enough pressure until you notice the glue is coming off. This process does take time, but it is worth it. I got sick of looking at washout colors!


Good luck to anyone, but if you have questions, feel free to ask. I'll answer as best i could.

Thanks! It is so much better!!! No washout colors! Very vibrant! I actually had to adjust the color hue so it was not so saturated. Very surprised how this is a TN screen after this mod.Now that i think about it, I should do a BLB pic for you guys. I did not even check if there was any BLB after the mod. I was just happy it went well. I am a happy camper! Now, want a 32" glossy screen with 144hz 4K!! biggrin.gif

Gotten one of these to. I received a A02 revision. I asked the store to check if they had any A03's but they said they were not able to check that.
Didn't know it was printed on the box itself.

Apart from that I think this is a stunning monitor. Coming from a BenQ XL2420T which was already very smooth. The 2560x1440 reso is the biggest difference for me and already love it.

Is it worth returning the A02 though and go for a A03? Seems I've gotten a pretty good A02, very good blacks, minor backbleed, no dust and no dead/stuck pixels.
