I use this two sided MF cloth for cleaning the panel, the yellow side is for glass etc and has yet to micro scratch the surface:

Some glass panels are a nightmare to clean but with the right cloth, it's easy. Most cloths all it had done was shift the fibers about the screen but never lift them. The good ones lift it completely and any subtle marks. Including water marks.

So, just in case anyone else is wondering about extending their warranty, I've been enquiring with Dell, and it's not great news unfortunately:

1year Advance Exchange for £74.54
2year Advance Exchange for £148.88

Please be informed the Burn in Protection is part of Accidental Damage Cover which is available only at the time of purchasing the new machine hence it is not included in the new warranty.

Would you happen to know the name of that cloth? I could use a decent one.
It was this:

Rtings review

"Sadly, it uses an extremely uncommon pixel layout that results in noticeable color fringing and blurry text, so it's not well-suited for productivity use as a PC monitor. It's also best suited for completely dark rooms, as it has raised blacks in a room with any ambient lighting, and the screen has a pink tint to it"

Yeah but you rate Vincent highly no? You love quoting him a lot. Do you know what he says?

The Best PC Gaming Monitor. PERIOD.​


:cry: :cry: :cry:


Oh and no pink tint here. First I have ever heard of it too.

I use mine for professional photo production.... See no difference in quality performance in this areas vs my outgoing monitor - Both very good for colour ad picture quality. The QD-OLED being on another level for contrast and clarity obviously.

Turns out the noob is quoting the Samsung S95B OLED review again. I just copy pasted the quote and the Samsung TV review popped up. Lol.

He cannot even differentiate between the Alienware monitor and the Samsung tv :cry:

He is just so butthurt :D

My dead pixel near the middle hasn't solved itself so I've had an RMA put in for replacement, they estimate sometime in September! :O
I thought Dell only do replacements for stuck pixels not dead ones?

Got a red stuck pixel myself near the middle, so annoying I can't un see it.

I had 2 issues one was dead pixel other was faint vertical lines that I can see in some colours in content, not sure if new one will exhibit second issue or not the same, but dead pixel was enough for me to want to try and replace it.

I mentioned the issues in the ticket and they accepted the RMA :)

Do these look the same?

Interested in getting some myself.

Wouldn't bother for 1 pixel, what colour is it stuck on. The one in September may come with 2 stuck pixels :)
Stuck on Red. I guess with 3 years warranty I have time to decide if I should roll the dice on getting a replacement.

Perhaps something will go wrong with it in that time and I have no option to return it :D

They accepted my RMA for a single dead red pixel as well. (Wonder why it's always the red ones, anyone got a different colour?)

However, hearing people complain about the fan noise, I'm tempted to cancel it, I've never heard the fan on mine, and other than the dead pixel it's flawless

To be honest the pixel is only really noticeable when you're looking for it on a pure red screen, it's not visible at all in normal use
