Uneven Backlight LG E2370V-BF IPS Monitor: Return or Keep...?

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
so i got two LG E2370V-BF. both seems to have light bleed at the bottom corners. Are these all like this for IPS/LED monitors? should i return them back to newegg...?

I took some pictures of this in a dark room with no light except the monitor being powered on with a black image in the back.

I have the same monitors as you and mine does it also on two of them but not on one. Mine arent as noticeable as yours though. If you don't have to pay return shipping or restocking fees and it really bothers you, return it.

What is your monitor brightness at? If it's at 100% you might try turning it down to 70-75% and see what happens.

my monitor brightness and settings is sRGB, Brightness is turned down to 30 only. I've tried higher brightness and same issue with corner bleedings horribly.

i'll RMA them for replacements and see how those go. I'm thinking its going to be "Hit or Miss" with these light bleeding.

So I have my replacements. I'm not sure what to say anymore since the backlight bleed on the right corner is still there. I think its the same issue on all of these LG IPS Series.

Anyone else thought on this...? Return for my $$ back and wait for a Dell / HP IPS...?

i started reading... "i got 2 LG..." and stopped there. you get what you pay for with LG. LG seems synonymous with low quality.

My E2370V's. Just ignore the corner with the crosshairs. Stupid dead pixel tester wasn't cooperating. If you see what looks like pixels the wrong color, it's my ****ty camera. They have no dead pixels or stuck pixels in person.

Right:


Both monitors at a distance (only right panel on for comparison):


Edit: Forgot to mention. 30 brightness, 50 contrast is my current settings on both panels. That makes a huge difference in back light bleed. They come so cranked up its insane.

I take it you prefer higher quality brands TN panels? ****ty brand IPS > top brand TN all day long.
