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.

I think i will try this later when i get home with the "move head as printer" way biggrin.gif i hope i don't find anything. Will also check out the monitors built in test.

Could you guys maybe post a pic of your setup?

Setup in what way? Physically the monitor on the desk, or configurations?
I need to check but I think I left monitors RGB as normal, set deep sleep to off, and brightness is 22 as per Fattys suggestions.
And then I used his ICC profile.

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

You can go here http://jasonfarrell.com/misc/deadpixeltest.php or use the Dell built in diagnostic tool with colors. With the monitor unplugged accept for the power cord. Hold buttons 1&4. 1 being to the far left and 4 being to the far right. You will then see a color pattern come up after a few seconds from holding those 2 buttons at the same time. Keep hitting button 4 to scroll through the different colors until the end. You will then be able to spot most panel uniformity issues if you have any and dead pixels.

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

If they are visible and its bothering you. Get a replacement. Mine follow with EVERYTHING. You can even see it while gaming. No good. Its never going to go away on its own and could potentially get worse over time as the screen ages I would imagine. Replacement number 6 is on the way for me.

Wow. Dell is all over it this time. I already got confirmation order for my new replacement and could go out today. They are sending out the whole thing again from Dell.com with next day delivery.

Setup mine today, Dec 2015 A02 revision.

There is no mistaking this for an IPS panel, but it's the best I've seen a TN panel look. Mine has this weird hotspot that looks like an eraser smudge, so I'll probably be returning it and trying again. After using it for a while and playing some games, I sort of wish this was a couple inches smaller. Even if you sit dead center, you can see color shift in the corners and edges, although it's not that noticeable in games. The TN panel feels faster in motion than the 144hz IPS monitors I've tried, but that might be placebo. Gsync is incredible and was immediately noticeable for me. Everything is butter smooth.

Is the better move to return this to best buy and just buy another, or go through Dell?

edit: I don't know what you guys are doing messing with the nvidia color settings and jacking up the digital vibrance... that just makes the monitor look like garbage.

There will be a 24 inch version soon if you find 27 too big. Check out the S2417DG.

Oh, I take it back. I had to disable Witchers preserve gamma and manually raise it up.
I guess up till now I was always doing outside/day time quests.
I had to do one that was crazy dark. I ended up needing the Cat potion for enhanced sight. I thought it was just that area.
I went to another one in a cave and nearly pitch black.
Brightness still 22, so I dont know.
I also went back into windows color management and i guess since I got the 1070 it wiped some settings because it had the monitor as standard plug and play, not the dell model # specifically.
