    Has anyone, who has already received their 15 had this display ghosting issue that I'm having?

    This is pretty severe for a supposed IPS panel...

    That's pretty damn awful -- anyone else having this issue? Mine will be here in a week or so to test out.

    It shouldn't be ghosting THAT bad though. I would call Alienware over this, maybe there was a batch of defective panels.

    Probably they wanted to cut display cost too much and that's why you have ghosting. Im 99% sure that they won't replace it for you and anyone.

    Is this the 4k display or the regular 1080p?

    It was the regular 1080p display.

    Not an AW 15, but I know the 13 I previously had with an IPS never did anything like that, it was perfect in comparison, likewise for the TrueLife display on my current one. That looks like a bad panel or possibly some other driver/hardware issue.

    I have to disagree with the poster who said Dell would likely not replace it, if it is shown faulty they will.
