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.

Does this look familiar?

This was hard to get a decent picture of, especially with my michael j fox hands. It's mostly noticeable on white or light blue backgrounds, and not at all in games or media. There's another one a few inches closer to the center, but that one is less visible and I couldn't even get a picture of it.

The Acer XB270HU Abprz I returned had one of those in middle, to the left. I don't recall if it was there from the start, but that monitor was plagued with issues. Stuck pixels, dead pixels, backlight in one area didnt work for a day, and next few days was fine. And it had one of those dark spots. I returned that with the quickness.

I want to jump on this but does anybody know why it's comparatively cheap ($519)?
Asus Rog Swift PG278q is basically identical according to TFTcentral but $200 more.

ROG tax. And for paying that extra youll get no better/possibly even worst QC, and lack of an hdmi port. No reason to buy the Asus unless you prefer the gamer look of it. Id take the cleaner design of the Dell any day.

Ah yes I have seen others just like that posting pics. I wonder what causes this weird issue. Especially when it does not fully show initially out of the box so much. That one is pretty bad though.

I can see it real good. I hope you are taking it back?

I just unboxed and installed my new S2716DG.
It's an A02 maf. date January 2016.

Unfortunately I currently use it with intel intergrated graphics as I am waiting for a GTX 1080.

Well,luckily no dead pixels,bleeding or uniformity issues.The deep sleep issue is there of course.


I tried some settings on the display to make the colors a bit better..

My monitor before this was an IPS LG 277L.
Comparing them,the dell has more yellowish whites and the blacks seem more greyish even thought when trying the pixel tester the black is superior in comparison to the IPS I had.
As for the coating I confirm it is light.My LG has heavier.

Any recommended settings on the display?I will try windows profiles after I receive the nvidia.
post #2970 of 5171
I think Windows profile make a decent job, even thouhg I toggle between this two profiles for gaming and desktop use: https://pcmonitors.info/reviews/dell-s2716dg/

Anyway, the best recommendation in my case is to lower down brightness to ZERO (or almost zero), because this monitor still let you difference every detail in darkness (testd with gamma/colors patterns easily), and you obtain a very rich and deep black.

I also reduce Nvidia "magic bright" color to 30% to have a more natural (less saturated) colors, but this may be a personal taste.

And of course, if you have Nvidia 3D Vision glasses and a good graphic card (GTX 1070 or so) try to play games using 3D. This is a great add that this monitor offer and only a few people take advantage, and in my opinion is more important than g-sync because the level of inmersion. In fact this is the main reason for me to buy this monitor. This is probably the best monitor in the market with 3D VIsion support (IPS technology does not support 3D Vision).
