I don't see how you could possibly be unhappy about any monitor that's built within the last 3 years.
>'tilting' is your fault.
>'tinting' just send it back to the manufacturer. Dell picks up the monitor over here, not sure about elsewhere. I sent a 2208 model back and they gave me a 2210 model no questions asked.
Have you tried those before you made a thread on a forum?
I absolutely don't understand this issue. A monitor has almost no moving parts, and requires about 10 minutes to set up. How can you go wrong? Headphones on the other hand, you probably touch them more than once a day.
Already returned the monitor. As you may (or maybe not, who knows) possibly know, DELL's customer service is widely (in)famous for being one of the most stressing to deal with. Go and youtube it if you need more info. I'm not saying it's that horrible 100% of times, since as you just said your replacement went quite smooth. It's just that I really don't want to take the risk of being given a 2nd hand refurbished after waiting a month for the replacement and (as many ppl have reported out there) then finding out two weeks after receiving it that the 2nd one is defective too. I know chances may be low, but I just don't want to take the risk.
BTW Once again, I didn't make anything wrong. The monitor was just perfectly mounted in the stand. The problem was in the stand itself. Ok hope you have some DELL Uwhatever at home, coz I'm gonna try to explain it: You see that ''limb'' that goes from the stand itself to where the backside of the monitor is supposed to fit, right? Ok. You see this ''limb'' is attached to the stand by two ''rails,'' which are those supposed to allow you to adjust the monitor's height, right? Ok. Now imagine one of these rails is by default in a higher position than the other one, something you can hardly notice unless you have some ruler or something to measure it out. It's hardly noticeable, but having one rail in a higher position than the other neccessarily means that one of the ''limb's'' sides, wether it's right or left, is higher than the other. So what happens when you mount the monitor in the limb? The monitor is doomed to be higher in one of its sides.
Hope you got it this time, and look forward confirmation about it being ''tilting'', ''tinting'', or whatever

Unfortunately, all manufacturers list dynamic ratios only due to the bigger number to wow the public that doesn't know any better. Most monitors are only 1000:1 static anyways.
Yeah I had already heard something about that. Don't really know what the differences are althought I'm absolutely conscious about them being completely different things. Thanks for the advise thought, this makes me more confident about not ignoring a monitor that lacks this dynamic contrast ratio;)

When you explain your problem with minimal details, attack the brand for your own lazyness, and not the greatest english it will obviously lead to some problems. Though you're gonna have to adjust the settings on any monitor you buy. Otherwise you're going to experience your "tinting" on every one you buy, no matter the brand. Colour is also personal preference, I've worked on people's pcs that have the most ridiculous balances and when I ask about it they look at me like I'm an idiot; since they think it's the right colours.
I really am sorry if my writing made you feel I wasn't really clear. The problem with the stand, that wasn't really the reason I returned it for, has nothing to do with my ''lazyness''. However, you may be right when you talk about color setting. Since I'm new to display hi-fi, I have to admite I didn't consider it so important.
Ty again everybody. Will post something once my new monitor has arrived
