1. Leave it off for a few hours - IR doesn't seem to be permanent on this model, it goes away after a while but comes back overnight
2. As soon as you turn it on, leave one explorer window or white image on a dark background
3. After 15-20 minutes, check for image retention on dark gray background, specifically 80% gray or 47-47-47 RGB values

Also, when was yours manufactured? Mine was in June 2012.

That is very odd but I don't typically use non-realistic situations like that when using a monitor. I'll check it out tonight though.

I already have a ("cheap") Iiyama ProLite B2712HDS and my next monotor will be a 30' one ....

THX in advance
The Dell 30" models are due to be you never know!
