Dell U2515h Backlight bleed dilemma.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So its the same old question once again; how much backlight bleed is too much? Im really not sure how to proceed here. Just looking for some input on these pics:






These are taken in complete darkness, at 20/100 brightness. Keep in mind that i never really sit in front of a monitor in complete darkness anyway, and its not visible in brighter conditions. Its just the tiresome notion that im missing out or could get a better screen if i exchange it, even though it might also be worse. Honestly im not famililar with the track-record of this particular model, so im looking for advice on if i should keep or exchange? Keep in mind that the camera picks up more bleed than is visible otherwise.

i dont know that particular model either but that bleed is pretty substantial. i would personally exchange it in hopes for getting a better panel with less bleed. if the exchange is the same or worse i would honestly return it and find another monitor. its a pain in the ass but that level of bleed is a bit excessive imo. hope this helps.

All my Dells have had zero BLB, and I wouldn't accept anything less. That is like a laughable joke.

I would return it. I also have this monitor model and it came with a slight blb on the lower right hand corner, you can't really notice it unless you stare at it.
I have plenty of Dells and most don't suffer from blb, so it's really down to how lucky or unlucky you are when getting your monitor.

I had this U2515H for like 6 months and it was absolutely perfect. Very most of them are very good with no or very little bleed. Also Dell has great customer support so exchanging your monitor for new unit through RMA will be quick and pleasant. This is why you buy stuff from serious manufacturers with respect for customer like Dell, not from joke manufacturers like Asus. This is monitor from Ultrasharp line, should be covered with Next Business Day warranty, which is excellent. From my experience, you call them, describe problem, they give you e-mail, you send them pictures, receipt and etc and they are sending you new monitor (in many cases just monitor, you keep your cables). They are taking old one day after you get new one. Just perfect.

There is high chance of getting one without issues, so you surely should RMA it through Dell support and taste some proper customer support.

Can you take a picture from 2-3m away and facing the monitor dead center? Because I see more glow than bleed on here.

We can't tell how much backlight bleed you have. Cameras do NOT take accurate pictures of backlight bleed, I'm surprised so many people on this forum still don't know that, commenting "wow that's a horrible amount of bleed, return it" or whatever, when in reality no one here has any idea whether it's a large amount of bleed or not.

Based on my experience with how pictures of backlight bleed turn out, your pictures look like a pretty minimal amount of backlight bleed, actual bad backlight bleed usually looks MUCH worse than that in pictures. But, every camera is different in how it treats pictures like this, so I can't really make more than a guess.

ok, i took another pic about 2 meters away, and it more closely represents what i see at that distance, only still a bit brighter in the camera shot obviously. I suppose at that distance it suggests it might be ips glow, somewhat accentuated by the fact that the corners, especially the bottom left, is a tad brighter. But when i get closer with the cam al 4 corners light up like christmas trees. Here is the pic:

IPS glow changes depending on the angle of viewing, backlight bleed is the same from any angle, so it sounds more to me like IPS glow than backlight bleed.
