    No pic, nothing. I just requested a new one and had it the next day. It was a bnib, no refurb.

    The 2713HM is a pretty awesome screen. Still, i'm most anxious for the u3014. It should be released in Feb or March.

    Thanks. Called in and it was about a 2 minute call to arrange everything. Hopefully the next one has no defective pixels.

    What do you guys use to check for dead pixels? I haven't seen any, but I'll like to check just to make sure.

    Did you get the replacement 2713HM yet? Was the 2nd one the charm? I was really impressed by the image quality of this monitor, text is extremely sharp and colors are great. Like you said the AG is nearly completely unnoticeable, unlike the prior model u2711 and u3011.

    Not yet, I should have it next week. I think it's great that dell shipped a replacement with the return label for the defective monitor. I'm still using it since it works great other than the 3 dead pixels, which I only notice on all white backgrounds.

    I would assume dead. I ran some utilities for fixing stuck pixels but that didn't work. At first it looked like dirt under the panel, 3 little grey/black spots. Do you know of any other utilities out there?

    Those are dead pixels and can't be fixed. Bright pixels are the ones you can possibly fix. Bright pixels show up as a steady colour that doesn't change.

    I got my replacement U3011 yesterday and this one is flawless. It also has a more uniform backlight whereas the last one had a couple brighter spots. :thumbsup:

    nice Groove...

    Glad to hear you got a keeper.

    Dell's monitor policy is the best in the business and why I am/will continue to be a loyal customer

    I got a U2713HM for $559 + tax off of Amazon a few weeks ago. This thing is glorious. However, after using my Retina display MacBook Pro, I now am wishing for a 27" 4K monitor. That would be amazing. Maybe this year?

    Agreed. I'm a big fan of high resolution and want it to happen, but the initial models will cost over 5000$ US and many models will be capped at 30hz at native resolution. On top of this, the models out now actually cost over 17,000$ US -- Obviously that isn't ready for a mass consumer market; The only buyers currently are for scientific / medical / corporate applications.

    My best guess is that it will be more widely adopted when there is:

    1) 4k media for the Ultra HD TV

    and

    2) More graphics processing power to actually harness 4k resolution

    Maybe 1-2 years? I do hope i'm wrong though, i'd love to get my hands of a 4k screen. Big fan of high res here, as mentioned - the sooner the world is rid of TN 1080p panels, the better.

    Thanks for putting this thread together. Question for you - are those "No AA" screenshots without any AA at all, or just without MSAA? While I agree that in multiplayer you won't notice it that much while playing, I think there's a pretty huge image quality difference between your screenshots. I use High FXAA and think it looks pretty good, but I've never done back-to-back screenshot comparisons like yours.

    the "No AA" benchmarks and screenshots have both post and deferred AA disabled, so no AA at all.

    Have you tried doing your same screenshots or at least playing with FXAA High and no MSAA? The minimums your benchmarked with MSAA are a tad low for intense multiplayer sequences.
