Good tips, thanks.
I think it's possible that the floor model you saw might have been feed a limited range signal instead of a full rgb one. When I first connected the S2415h to my gpu it defaulted to limited dynamic range, making everything looked washed and hazy.
Here's some pics in games with dark settings:
I'd say the glow is tolerable enough, in fact as I was playing my...
Here's the Dell S2415h next to my old NEC 20wmgx2. That's how bad the yellowing was.
Aside from the glow in dark movies/games, the Dell looks very nice. Accurate and vibrant colors. Is the BenQ VW2430WH the best VA alternative?
It appears your Dell has some backlight bleeding coming from the right bottom. Mine has the same in exactly the same spot.
I'm gonna try to take some pics comparing the Dell against my old trusty NEC 20wmgx2. Should be later this week because I seem to have lost all my hdmi adapters and might...
I've had my 20WMGX2 for 4 1/2 years now. Feel the same about it.
However, I've given up hope for a 23"+ glossy ips ever coming out. If my Nec dies I might buy a Dell 2311 on sale and try the paper towel thing.
The 20WMGX2 is a NA model. The 24WMGX3 is Europe only. No way you'd get one through an RMA.
Damn, I didn't realize that officially the 20WMGX2 was released over 4 years. Mine will be 4 in May. Still going strong. This bad boy has been a real trooper and isn't showing any signs of...
This is a pretty common problem with 20" ips lcds. My 20WMGX2 has a small stain in the upper left area. Developed about 2 years after I got it and hasn't spread any further for over a year now. Fortunately I can't see it at all while web browsing, but it is noticeable during movies/games...
Ditto. I'm keeping mine until it dies. Thought about upgrading for a while but nothing out right now has the awesome glossy coating AND ips. It helps that almost 4 years after I got mine friends/family still praise the image quality when they see it.
I used to use the native setting, but also found it a bit yellowish. Now I use these "calibrated" settings.
Looks much better than native in my eyes.
