S2417DG, Dead pixels, Revision A00, Manufacturer date June 2017

Hello,

Hopefully I am doing this right. Recently, I purchased this Dell S2417DG directly from the Dell website, purchase date was 3/24/2018. After using it for awhile, I'm thinking there are some cloudy and banding issues present. There is also a few dead-pixels near the center of the screen, which are slightly distracting on plain backgrounds.  

I hadn't checked the manufacture date before today, but came to find out that the revision number is A00 and my date was June 2017. That seems pretty crazy, at least to me, that the monitor was from that old of a batch from the factory. 

So I'm posting here and will be reaching out to Dell support to see about a replacement if possible? I'm hoping I'm not out of the return window here, but didn't realize the issues at first. 

Anyone that may be able to explain why the revision sent to me, in the first place, would be great, and any advice on how to handle the service information is welcomed. 

Thank you, and I have the purchase details if necessary too.
