The chat reps. themselves. I even told them I give up and Dell wins. I don't even care about a replacement at this point etc. They asked kindly if they could see the pictures I had already taken. I let them see them. Next thing I know. They set up for another new replacement with out me even asking.

Its definitely the monitor. My first 2 did not have this issue. So, I know for sure what they are suppose to look like. I think what is happening. QC just passed a lot with bad panel uniformity that develops over time when new. I bet they just fire them up. Run test patterns. If nothing is seen right then and there. It goes in the box. I could easily see this happening. Since my last 3 with this issue was fine for the first few hours. Then develops.

Here is another picture that shows it real clearly. Picture attached.



This is normal and what it should look like with the picture below. Someone sent me the picture to compare. Even using my ICC profile and same brightness setting.

Kick myself in the ass for not keeping the first one. Had I known all of this was going to happen. Nothing else was wrong with it. At the same time. That dead pixel right in the middle really bothered me. I always wanted to remove it and always caught my eye. I was also worried about more dead pixels possibly popping up in the center.
I'm not sure if I missed it, but yea, I found a 2nd one. Its in the upper right corner. So thats one in lower left, and now upper right.
Lower left seems a little darker. I tried some to take some pics, almost looked like 2-3 dead in a row. but when I cycled colors to double check, it looks like 1 in the pics, but still a little darker. Now you have fear in me to leave as is or take a chance on another.
I could always supply your ass cheeks to help the cause...

Haha! At this point and seeing what I have been going through. You are seriously rolling the dice if you make an exchange. But, it is up to you. Dead pixels are dead pixels. I don't care how many or where they are. Should not have any. Its a defect either way. If they are far off and don't catch the eyes. I would not bother. BUT. If in the middle. It would go back. At the same time. Another has developed for you. You might get more? Possibly in the middle? Who knows. Dell says you need 6 or more for a replacement.

They are still very much out of the way. Lower left is 3cm in, 3.5cm up from corner.
Right one is 1cm in, 1.5cm down from corner.
They're both black but bottom left is much more visible.
Oh well, I'll wait a bit more.

Imo, you should never keep a monitor with dead pixels - or any defects for that matter. Makes no sense to pay just as much as someone else who received a good one.

When I bought this monitor back when it came out, it had one dead pixel and poor backlight uniformity - promptly returned. Weird considering I thought Dell was supposed to have good qc.

Well I originally got it from newegg, and they only have a01s. I had random flickering of the screen, non hdcp compliant.
So I went through Dell for 5 days+ and got this replacement.
They said it needs 5-6+ dead pixels to warrant another return.
Mind you I already did a song and dance with Newegg returning the Acer xb270hu? TN model for 5 dead pixels, dead backlight, and darkened areas.

After swapping around a bit you get tired. So 1 off to the side initially, I was ok with. now theres a second.
I will open up the chat with them and ask as the initial month is about to pass.

But I hear you, why pay the same for faulty equipment when others can pay same, or less with sales, then I did, for better.
Hell my wife wanted me to just settle on the Acer with numerous problems.

It's not Dell's fault its using AUO panels and they're the problem. Dell should have screened these to check them for defects though but i guess they didn't.

Looks mine has those ,,ass-cheeks** too but not that visible. Not sure if it gets worse or stays like that.
When I slightly touch my screen I can see lines coming up specially around those ,,cheeks** ...

I ,,only** have 1-2 dead pixel/s on my screen but I cant take my eyes off from it. Tried dead pixel fixer, applied pressure with rubber eraser, used hot towel in plastic bag to ,,massage** pixels- nothing...

I have rev A03 and the Deep Sleep issue is still present as well...

I feel sorry for your guys that have these errors. I better start to hunt after errors on my screen before the return right runs our.

How did you guys search for pixel errors. Just white background and eye search?

Usually when I buy a new monitor i immediately look for faults.

One way to check: http://www.checkpixels.com/test.html/

Theres a site I have book marked, cant check from work, but simply has a link to pages that are all black, white, red, blue and green.
So i open them each in a new tab in firefox, f11 for full screen , then ctrl+tab to tab over.
Go to first one, then I stare at it at bottom left, head on, and move my whole head/neck to the right. With the TN viewing angles you might not see if it just sitting in front and middle and just moving your eyes around. like the one in upper right i didnt spot, my daughter did since she was standing on my right.
I was able to rip the corner off a post it note and put it near the pixels and zoom in with my camera. the focus was flaky until I put the paper there to help it.
Some pixels might only show bad in different colors. I think those are classified as stuck pixels. Like on the Acer I had, it would show blue on the black background and black on blue, but i didnt see anything there on white or green.

Oh yea, the monitor has a built in test thats just like this. Check the paperwork, but i believe dont have the video cable connected to pc, and hold 2 buttons, i think menu and left most, and hold for a few seconds. and itll come up I think gray and each time you hit the button it cycles to the next color.

Fatty, for what its worth, the right "ass" cheek looks a bit more like a well formed breast. you have that going for you.
