"Very good display!"4.5 starson by macassemble
Pros: Clear, High Res, PIP, NO BACKLIGHT BLEEDING!
Cons: Pure Black colors get blue color shift when viewed horizontally and yellow vertically
Summary: Excellent overall quality, no Backlight bleed! Trying to find an LCD WITHOUT backlight bleed is pretty tough,but this one does not disappoint with virtually NO backlight bleed. The only real issue I have with this display is when displaying pure Black, there is a noticeable blue color shift when viewed horizontally and yellow vertically although during normal use (email, internet) it keeps looking great from any angle! The screen is very uniform in quality. As a bonus to me, the bezel is smooth, so my sticky notes stick to it! Dell made a quality screen on this one. As for the banding issues, I can confirm that gradients are banded when under test conditions, but results were virtually identical to my new Apple MacBook Pro 15.4" so it''s not as if the dell display is unusually harsh to gradients.
