    If it's as good as my ASUS monitor then your mind will be well & truly blown

    I'd recommend running a program called UDpixel or similar free program, just to set your screen background white/black for you to scan the screen with your eyes & hunt down any dead black or white pixels . If there are more than an acceptable amount , different companies allow so many e.g 0 white or 5 or 6 black, you can sort out a replacement if applicable.

    I disagree with firms that say any dead pixels are acceptable, it is never acceptable to have a dead pixel on a new screen and to be honest I would fight them with the help of trading groups if I ever got a screen with a dead pixel, but then I scrapped a monitor because of a dead pixel because they really bug me.

    The good thing about Dell is they cover any dead pixels, back light bleed etc and let you keep the monitor till your new unit comes in

    As do i, especially as it covers such expensive monitors, which you expect only the best out the box through quality control.

    They probably still have some restrictions.

    I've heard nothing but the best from Dell warranty, they had some issues with cross hatching and burn in on the early u2713hm models but from what I've heard that's been fixed. I almost got the Asus but ive heard the Dell has better factory settings and richer colors.

    Yeah, the poor quality control on Dell's were one reason i wasn't sure on them myself. But still, at least with the warranty you can change it & hopefully get a good one eventually.

    At least Dell is really improving their stuff to be better.

    With anything that high resolution there will always be some duds, whether it be back light bleed or dead pixels, thats the good part about a warranty
