O btw, I took some pics earlier but they were very inaccurate in showing the slight blk/wht contrast on the monitors so it wouldn't of done any good to post 'em, plus they kept coming out blurry.

Rip, after a few days of use, has yours gotten any better or worse? Just curious.
Send me one and I will finish breaking it in for you. Tough work, but that's the kinda guy I am...

You gonna sell the one's you don't keep or just send 'em back? How's Dell been with the returns? If I ever get a shot at a mega-coupon deal, I'll probably do it and return if it starts to bleed.

Also, have you tried recalibrating to turn down the brightness and limit blomming?
