This is true. I've seen three and only one had considerable backlight bleed. On my unit I can only see it when recording through a camera.

I bought my SA950 a week ago and am quite happy with it. But see this photo of the backlight bleeding on it. Is this bad enough to warrant an exchange? I didn't think it was that bad because I don't notice it when I play games. But the bleeding on the sides are noticeable when I watch movies. What do you think?

The bleeding left and right sort of looks like my friends and my unit. The thingy around the 7 is probably you bleeding into the picture and the other blueish thingy right of it some other part of your room yes? If not it's horrible, if yes, well.. time to level up your ninja.gif factor biggrin.gif

*edit*
What's frightening me more is the fact that everytime you adjust the angle of the display it puts slightly visible pressure on the TN itselt since the whole thing is so damn thin. I've almost got a heart attack when a friend tested mine and yanked the display back some degrees. It looks so fragile, i hope it doesn't break or something.

Yeah that's about right. The bleeding is really confined to a very thin line stretching from the top to bottom of the sides of the screen. I don't think Samsung will do an exchange for that. In any case, from what I've been reading, I'm bound to get another unit with the same bleeding or even worse.

Overall, bleeding aside, I think this is a fine monitor and would recommend it.

Just like hella said I experience the most backlight bleed when I actually take a picture of it when I look at the screen I don't see it. I do think my monitor might have been better than others though.

Here's two photos of the backlight bleed on my 950d. The first one is with an ISO of 250
950d_Backlight_bleed_250.jpg
and the second is at ISO 800
950d_Backlight_bleed_800.jpg

Those bright-spots are not bright/stuck pixels, my camera is just a piece of junk and probably has a dirty lens.

But as you can see, i have barely any backlight bleed and most of it is fairly uniform so it's not distracting.

But considering the current price drop on the 950d.... its really making me think about getting it over the 750d. I just like the fact theres an extra port I can connect stuff too.

Anyone know if there's and deals on the 750d/950d anywhere?

i don't know if you have seen this monitor in person but everyone that goes to my house look at the monitor in disbelieve on how beautifull it is. I really love the look best design ever.

Hi just got my S23A750 here and it's brilliant! My problem is that when I switch to 3D mode images are all washed out. Changing the brightness does not help. I am using displayport but have tried hdmi also to no avail. Any suggestions? confused.gif

Thanks
