Congrats on the new display. I made the jump from a U2713HM also. Very happy. Mine has some bleed in the upper left but It isn't noticeable unless I am in a dark room with completely dark screen.Was able to rush home from work to bring it in, set it up, and play with it for just a few minutes.
It's sooooo wide. It's weird. The curve is super subtle that at times it doesn't look like a curve. Are the other LG and Samsung panels curvier?
Haven't really gotten a chance to check the picture quality, though it did look like it had better black levels than my 2713HM, maybe?
It did look like there was backlight bleeding on the upper left and right of the monitor. I'll have to see how bad it is later.
As mentioned on AT, we think you're exceeding the bandwidth limits.I am having problems with the Dell's DP out using MST. I have DP 1.2 enabled in menu however the destination display (HP ZR2740W, 2566x1440 ips) only shows 640x480 and shows up as Non-Plug and Play display. If I plug in directly to video card shows up fine.. hate to send the Dell back but this is rather annoying..
According to Dell manual & maths 3440x1440@60z (x2) , DP1.2 has ample bandwidthAs mentioned on AT, we think you're exceeding the bandwidth limits.
yes there is upstream AND downstream. In essence this allows the monitor to almost act as a KVM..you can use multiple PCs with single KB/Mouse/(usb devices)horry sh!t!
Just got mine from Dell via pricematch and Im in awe of this thing.. it helps that I was moving up from a U2311h.
So far only a tiny bit of IPS glow on each of the corners though I think mine is a compromise between it being in all corners but very minor vs in one corner and massive, so im actually pretty happy considering some of the pics I have seen with others. Gonna use it for awhile and see if it bothers me a lot.
Only con is that my 780 is being brought to its knees on some of my games at Ultra settings but that was to be expected. Its a good excuse to buy a 980(ti maybe).
BTW I didn't have time to search for the specs or test last night but are the USB ports 3.0? The cable it came with didn't have the typical blue coloring most USB3.0 cables/ports come with.
wait what?! this is a pretty cool feature. I wonder if this can operate my headless FreeNas system so I don't have to keep flipping my KB/Mouse over to it..yes there is upstream AND downstream.

It's better to have broke now within their return policy. They'll ship you a new one. No big deal. Also if it's out... no worries.. Dell does advance exchange. You are fine.Well this fricking sucks. Have had the monitor for a week and all of a sudden today it starts displaying a red/magenta line right through the middle vertically half way through the screen. It appears even without an input, so it is something wrong with the monitor itself.
I guess I'll have to talk to Amazon and get it replaced. This is after they gave me a discount for keeping the monitor with light bleeding, so I guess I'll lose that discount. I'm going to have to wait until tomorrow to contact Amazon since their late night support is usually awful.
edit: It appears that a white background causes the line to appear magenta while a black background causes a red line.
Literally nothing was done with it since I last used it and it was fine. I can't believe something broke internally this fast.
Their still on Rev A01 and have blacklight bleeding issues. I don't think they really care about fixing or reducing the backlight bleeding. If you talk to their tech support about it, they say that as long as the middle of the monitor is uniform, it falls within their specs.how's the backlight bleed on these nowadays? has there been a newer revision or something?
Mine was worse. Half the monitor was covered with a white thing and dozens of lines even when not connected to any inputs.Have had the monitor for a week and all of a sudden today it starts displaying a red/magenta line right through the middle vertically half way through the screen.

1. YesWith the sales I'm seriously considering ordering one of these. I have two quick questions:
1. Will this resolution be recognized and function properly with Windows7?
2. I am not a gamer, I will be doing mostly programming, data base design, and general office work. Will my Asus GTX 970 Strix CU2 OC adequately drive this monitor tof these tasks and some minor graphics work?
That's a physically broken panel. There's a good chance they won't accept that on a RMA...(snip)
Might be interesting to see what revision is coming from what supplier, at this point. Bunch of new old stock somewhere? Did you order direct from Dell, or...? I got mine from BestBuy online (don't think they carry it in stores) and it is a A02, which might go toward explaining why I don't see the intense backlight bleed others have on the older revision.My recent order was an A01 revision with a production date of November 2014. BLB in the upper left is pretty bad. Has anyone tried their luck sending theirs back for an A02? Apart from the BLB, this thing is outstanding.
