$800 - 25% off LCD Dellf coupon (Bradley_P hooked me up) - $45 off coupon from the deals page.
And now I am sending it back.
I had read reports of "backlight leakage" problems, but figured it couldn't possibly be as bad as people were reporting. How could they sell a monitor for $800 with such a flaw?
I hooked it up, and got a perfect black background. I started watching a widescreen movie, and it was great. Then, as the monitor warmed up, the corners started to glow with a grey halo. Crap.
So... just a "hardware" warning to the rest of you. It's real, and it sucks!
