So this typ
It might be standard price in Europe actually - few other shops in Germany also have it for around 600 Euro, and one shop that has it in Poland shows 2699 PLN which is (around 630-650 EUR)

Price is quite good. In other shop in Poland price is 2499 PLN (approx 590 Euro). I have called a week ago to the official dell shop in Poland and they tried to sell me that monitor for 4300 PLN (approx 1010 Euro). Real bargain!!!

@khemist- thanks dude, keep them fotos and reports coming please smile.gif


Ive ordered this monitor on Amazon too and I once I receive it, I will be able to tell very precisely if the monitor has visible inversed pixel artifacts in games and every-day desktop use or not.

At least the Acer XB270HU and Asus PG279Q, which have severe QC issues, had no visible inversed pixels/ checker board artifacts/screendoor effect when used in games or browsing/working in desktop.

The used XL2420G that I bought for the time beeing untill the Dell and Acer 271 come out (which Im gonna sell later), has some extensive inversed pixel artifacting both in Gsync mode via Display Port and just normal "classic" 144hz mode through DVI-D. Knowing that this panel can be overclocked to around 200hz on the korean monitors, and after I didnt have the same checkerboard-artifacts on the XL2420TE and XL2411T, it must be the the electronics used in the XL2420G, which cause those artifacts.

Unfortunately it doesnt seem like its possible to have the XL2420G replaced by another one, the morrons at BenQ want to "repare" my existing one. It seems like Benq doesnt offer a 1:1 exchange service, like for example Dell does. Which is another reason to test the new monitors that you buy extensively in the first weeks when you can still return them. Because if you discover something that bothers you after a few weeks/months- youre basically stuck with that monitor untill you sell it. At least if its any monitor company that is not offering a 1:1 exchange when you have technical problems with it.

So back to the Dell, yes I know the TNs still have angle color shift and all, but the colors as such are pretty advanced these days on top TN monitors. The contrast is pretty darn close to IPS monitors and color calibration, the only thing that remains ofcourse is the color shift at vertical/horizontal angles and poor viewing angles in general. But if you still play some competitive online games like CS Go, lol/dota and some very fast paced games like Doom/Quake Live and similar, I think a Gsync TN will be a better overal monitor for you than Gsync IPS.

Yes IPS are still noticably better than TN in terms of angles/colors, theres no denying that, especially if you do alot of designing work/photoshop and similar things. But seeing all the QC issues with the AUO ips panel, especially the most annoying one IMO which is extensive glow on some exemplars, Id seriously consider staying on TN, again for people who play alot of competitive online games, even at a "core" level, not only "hardcore".

For me personally, I think I can get used to TN color shift easier than I can get used to glow on IPS panels. The whole immersion in dark areas gets lost/destroyed by the annoying glow. Games like Tomb Raider for example, where you are in some dark caves/dungeons or just dark games in general like Thief, Batman etc. - the whole atmosphere gets destroyed if you have some very extensive glow on your monitor.

If youre a casual gamer and never play competitive online games, Id recommend you just go with IPS, everyone else should seriously consider a TN with all its disadvantages.

So I hope that the Dell actually has no inversed pixels and very low response times and a neutral coating- if all that is the case and it has no dead pixels/dust/bad color uniformity- its gonna be a keeper untill oled comes out, I would say.

Does it support Nvidia 3D mode ?

As moot stated, everything else about the monitor is great, and I've been very happy with its performance in-game. Xeby, I wouldn't worry about it at all.

EDIT: I also updated the original post to reflect this.

Yea dont worry about that test mate, most monitors have some pixel inversion issues in those specific test images, some to higher degree some to lesser.

What matters is if you see some weird artifacts in games or desktop use. The Acer XB270HU and Asus PG279Q had no visible artefacts in games/desktop whatsoever, HOWEVER in the particular lagom test, they also showed some inversed artefacts, thats seems to be the case for most "modern" monitors.

The XL2420G for example has visible inversed pixel artefacts in games and desktop use, and that is a no-go imo. So if you look very close in games and dont notice motion based inversed pixel artefacts, theres absolutely zero to worry about smile.gif

On the Asus PG278Q I was able to see some inversed pixels in games as well, like Dota 2 during camera motion, however the artefacts were really short and rather rare compared to the XL2420G. On my XL2420G, I see it during every camera motion like every 1-2 seconds or so.

@michaelius- lol, sure why not dude. Ive ordered mine through Amazon, for 595, honestly the price does really seems surprising to me, knowing that its Dell (and most of the time the higher price is justifiable too, given the great build quality and service), plus in the announcement it said that it would cost 700 dollars or so.

Now yes, Amazon.de had an offer for Acer XB270HU for 650 eur a few weeks ago, which is basically 50 eur more for an IPS panel and would theoretically be the better deal, but seeing how they now have around 40-50 units in the Warehouse Deals, which are basically all returned units, just shows the ammount of QC issues that is still going on with those AUO panels.

Im glad Amazon sells the Dell (not in stock though), since it will mean problem-free return if the monitor has issues. Didnt return a single monitor yet on Amazon, so it should be no issue if I had to.

I've got a couple of bits of something stuck in the top left corner of mine.
