for those who are considering asking for a 1-to-1 replacement, please do take note that you will be receiving back refurbished unit which sometimes get even worse than your existing one and the problem could be in other areas. So my advice is if you can live with it, just stay with it else take the chance.

For those who have bleeding issue, try to lower or dim down your brightness and contrast setting. The set comes default (level at 50 I think) so you would need to reduce it for calibration anyway.

Dell have no local staff to do deliveries, they will be fulfilled by courier company and they will not wait for you to test your "new" monitor because even if you have any new problem with the refurbished set, you will have to go through the whole cycle of calling and arrange a new pickup.

yes... I have 2x U2412M bought back in March and more or less have the bleeding problem but as long as the units are working fine, I minimized the bleeding prob by lowering the brightness and contrast according to the standard calibration settings.

Unless you are working/computing in a total darkness room else with room lighting, the bleeding issue can be ignored if it doesn't cover a big percentage of the screen.

I follow the calibration settings here ICC Profiles and Monitor Settings Database

the new settings also reduce power consumption by a few watts.

Thanks. But the bleeding problem seem to exit in IPS panel be it Dell or other brand. No sure want to wait till they found a solution to this problem. Till it stable then buy . Maybe settle for a LG 3D monitor first. quite cheap D2342p (TN panel) for $278.

If mine was bought from SLS, is it also covered by on-site warranty?
