Dell S2716DG 1440 144 Hz G-Sync Owners Thread - Page 285

post #2841 of 5302
I received one A03 and have zero complaints about it and I'm sure there's plenty of people in the same boat.

Personally I wouldn't hesitate buying this monitor. If you have problems with it or are unhappy return it and be done with it.

This last time Dell wanted pictures and I was happy to provide. They seen the issue and approved another brand new replacement. They are having major QC issues with this particular model and A03 revision.

I understand all of your issues except what you're describing as "side butt cheeks". Not being an ass (HAHAHAA) but can you explain that a little further? I have an A03 and just want to keep an eye out.

Hey Fatty, I forget, were there any adjustments you made for your monitor via nvidia panel?
I have a gtx card now and not sure if you had some others tweaks besides that icc profile.
Witcher3 looked beautiful but I noticed some banding in the dark sky around the moon. Is that the monitor, a gamma setting, or just the game itself?

i recently bought 3 s2716dg.
the first one i got was REV A03 and the other two i got were REV A02.
i don't see any differences between the two (A02 and A03), can you provide some information about the changes that were made?
also, there are numerous posts about problems with this unit. from you personal experience what are the general recommendations and insights? like disable the deep sleep... etc.
last questions, what are your color settings you are running? it will be nice to test other's settings... (mine are: bright - 26/ con - 75/ RGB 97/99/96)thumb.gif

thank you all and enjoy G-syncing:D
I havent heard of any specific differences in A02 to A03.
A00 had HDCP but darker coating.
A01 had hdcp report non compliant AND darker coating.
A02 and A03 have lighter coatings.
I did exchange an A01 with Dell and got an A03, and out of the box 1 dead pixel on the ower left.
No dark spots/ass prints yet.

Not as good a basis as Fatty's 4x, but I received 1x A03 from Dell directly and it has a dead pixel.

12 second mark really clear as it could be on camera I suppose. Its much more pronounced if you could see it face to face. Any thing with dark/light backgrounds you can see it. Also on all black screen.

I did not touch any thing. Just using the ICC profile. Yeah Witcher 3 should look amazing having a good profile since it will hold when enabled. I think that is just the game?

Thank you. Yes if I start to notice that I will be really annoyed.

I looks like the marks my monitor has. It is visible on a white fullscreen background when you move the cursor around the screen and follow it with your eyes. You will notice areas that have a different brightness and usually appear darker. With a black fullscreen background, it is visible only with low or no ambient light (dark room). I wonder whether this can be fixed somehow since it looks like some sort of display degradation effect that might not be there on a new screen ? However, I rather tend to send the monitor back and see if one time I can get an exemplar that is in a faultless state.

Its not normal and a flaw. My first 2 did not have this issue at all. If its bothering you. I cant imagine it not. I would not hesitate to ask Dell for a replacement. Or take it back where ever you bought it if you still have time left. Wondering if others are having this issue and just don't notice it. Or deeming it as acceptable. I have seen Asus and Acer have this same problem as well.

Yes, I expect a product to be in the shape how it gets advertised and I am definitely not paying for the manufacturer's deficiency of checking the product's quality. I have no problem sending it back until I get the product in the shape it is advertised with. By the way my monitor carton is marked with two black X put on the top with a marker.

Progress. Dell finally shipped my brand new replacement. Its a whole new order directly from Dell.com Hope to have it tomorrow or Monday.
