I made the mistake of buying this monitor for an eyefinity setup. The bezels ended up being too wide. Has anyone tried to remove the bezel on these things?

This is so cool. I've been using this monitor for a while, but I had no idea it could be overclocked.

One issue though - at 80Hz with the timings posted, my graphics card won't downclock its memory on idle. Not exactly an issue for my weaksauce card, but if I had something more powerful I'd be worried about heat and constant power usage even when you're on your desktop.

However, P2414H seems to like 78Hz with default "LCD Standard" timings just fine!

+2Hz over no idle mode for graphics card seems like a poor tradeoff... Unless there are some benefits to a nice round number that I don't know.

Nothing much specific to this monitor, but mine (manufactured July 2013, bought $200 from newegg in December 2013, rev A00) had some strange dark spots near the bottom that appeared a couple months ago and seemed to be getting slightly worse. It was pretty mild but clearly visible on a uniform background, but only on low brightness settings. Looked kind of like some issue with the backlighting.

Anyway, I got myself a replacement under warranty. Got one shipped here in two days (manufactured May 2015, rev A05), put the old one in the box and off it went. Dell's advanced exchange warranty is pretty nice. No cost, just some hassle of calling around customer support until I ran into someone who could actually deal with the problem. It's relatively difficult without a service tag number for the product (not on monitors 24" and lower) and no original order from Dell, but after harassing enough Indians over the phone, all is well.

Hello guys. I will get a new monitor and this is one of my candidates. The other one is the Dell S2415H. I was wondering if the P2414H would be superior? Both are going for the same price at Dell in my country. Thanks!

The P2414H is only superior if you prefer ergonomic flexibility and a matt screen. If you can accommodate a glossy screen in your lighting environment and don't care about the tilt-only stand or are happy to use an alternative VESA 100 solution then the S2415H is excellent. I've thoroughly reviewed both models on my website.

Thanks for your input. I don't mind the glossy to be honest. Just want the one with the best image quality and also the best one for gaming (I game and 60fps is good to me). Was reading something about the HDMI limited RGB range and having to do tricks to get full range on the S2415H, and since the P2414H got more connectivity options, I started having doubts. Not that I know much about screens.

Prolly anything is better than my HP s1935a LCD Monitor tongue.gif

That isn't an issue any more as the latest Nvidia drivers allow you to very easily select the correct 'Full Range' RGB signal.

Alright thanks! Do you know if that works for AMD vcards?

There is and for a while has been the appropriate toggle driver-side in AMD Catalyst Control Centre, yes.
