The ugly: the scanline pattern described here http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/peripherals/f/3529/t/19502072.aspx ... it was so annoying that even on movies shot at higher resolutions like 1440p or 2.7k shot on hero3 looked like interlaced content in the lower left corner ... this is the main reason i sent it back ... the ips glow i could leave with , even the erratic functionality of the menu ,input detection and other small glitches...
So the question is ... did the scanline pattern issue got resolved on the a02 rev ? or can it be resolved? if so i am considering a new buy .. otherwise is not worth it in my opinion .. unless you are at least 1m away from the display where the effect is no longer visible ( though i want a 30inch display to stay up close and have more headroom for palletes and other interface elements that clutter my screen )
my u3014 does not have the scanline issue. This made me think either DELL has a QC problem with their assembly line or LG has consistency issue with their panels.
