U2410 arrived!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So it's here, and I don't know what I should do.

The thing is built like a horse though, let me tell you.

Here are a couple of nice pictures:

Top viewing angle:

And finally...

There are dead pixels on the bottom right of the screen. I don't know if I should deal with it or return it for another one. You might have to click on the link to view it in full resolution. From looking at it closely, it looks like it's at LEAST 5 pixels. But it's kinda outta the way...:

It has NOT been calibrated or anything yet. I don't know the optimal way to go about that so I'm just going to leave it like this and do the stock calibration from my PC. Nothing special.

Looks great, feels a little laggy compared to my laptop screen but that could be because its 7" bigger

Dude, return that it immediately! Did you buy it new or used?

Definitely return it. You deserve what you paid for and if they don't let you return it, dell has a 3yr no dead pixel warranty with a free exchange.

Reading this on a U2410 myself right now... great monitor.

Mine, had ONE bright (green) pixel when it arrived. I didn't bother with it, and surprisingly it disappeared after a few months of use. I had the same thing happen to my first LCD - a Samsung - way back in the day: the green pixel went away after a few months and never returned (it's been about 5 years by now.)

In your case, however, it seems like you have some dark pixels, and I don't think those generally go anywhere. I would also suggest getting it replaced, especially if you have five pixels in trouble.

It's a great monitor, just sucks that you got a defective one. Good luck!

Dell allows you to exchange/refund for any reason, no questions asked for the first 21 days on any UltraSharp monitor.

Definitely exchange that monitor until you get one with no blemishes.

Yes return it. For that kind of price, this shouldn't be a question (not to sound mean or anything lol).

Is this how Dell usually handles RMAs...?

They want me to buy a new monitor and then they will send me a shipping label for the old one and reimburse me...?

That is one badazz monitor and I have owned just about every IPS monitor out there. I will never use a TN panel again neither a glossy panel of any type. I used to be an Apple fan-boy and spent lots ducats on their monitors only to battle glare.

Enjoy your monitor.

As of right now, I am absolutely NOT satisfied with this monitor. The RMA process was pathetic, though the support was good.

The dead pixels are ridiculous. Take a look at these awesome pink and green screenshots...
