    putting my service tag in dell website doesnt return any results.

    I can find my order via using customer number and my email and the order history looks like the details were never complete.

    can everyone else find their monitor warranty from dell?

    Service tag was a bust but they found it via the S/N.

    My replacement should be here by tomorrow afternoon.

    This was the bleed in my current, i am keen to see if it less in the new one

    Just reading up about the dual-downstream USB3 ports - so this essentially can behave like a KVM switch? :thumbup:

    Oh, boy. One of these and a Pascal GPU to drive it ad I think the toy budget is exhausted. Just need Dell to drop a pre-EOFY sale and I'm set! :lol:

    The only downside I can possibly see is my ancient GearGrip monitor harness won't fit so nicely :(

    Yup, i prefer 3 X 2560X1440p over the wide dell. Cost a little more but better IMO.

    I just sold my Dell, grabbed an Asus 1440P to go with my current one, will pick up a 3rd monitor later on when cash is available.

    I have mine on an Atdec Levitate:

    I even put it all the way up when I'm in standing desk mode.

    *sigh*
    Getting a couple of Dell laptop promotional emails most weeks, but still hanging for the U3415W to go on sale.

    C'mon Dell :rolleyes:

    The replacement burnt out after 30 mins of use. Dell replaced it and at 1 point i had 3 in my office but 1 was dead otherwise i would have tried 3 screens.

    The new one is revision 2 and blacklight bleed is a touch better

    can anyone recommend a monitor to add to this as side panels in surround sound config so the res needs to match the u3415w

    Just run 3 of them in surround, that's what I did with my 34 inch monitors.
    I found that due to the 21:9 ratio, that if you want everything to look in proportion, then only a 34 inch works perfectly with another 34 inch.
    As you can see from the following video, everything lines up perfectly with 3 x 34 inch monitors in surround.
    Any other size monitor and it just won't ever be quite right.

    Finally got one of these on sale. Dell had the 20% off this week with the click 20 deal on eBay. Works out around 1249 I think. Pretty happy with that.

    Yeah I have been waiting ages.

    Dell hasnt had many sales through their website of late so this was handy.

    Hey guys,

    Notice a bit of a blemish on certain screens. Not sure what the problem is. Anyone seen anything like this before?

    I'm very tempted to RMA it tbh.

    And just a comparison shot on a different background..

    Got a replacement A01 panel (looks like a refurb..) and seems alright so far. BLB still a problem though.

    Has anyone who got one of these upgraded/supplemented/changed from a Dell U2713H?

    I'm interested in how the colours change as I've tried the Samsung S34E790C (VA 8-bit panel) and the colours are really washed out compared to my U2713H.
