post #7061 of 11286
I'm starting to get really annoyed at the really awful backlight bleeding in the lower right corner. It didn't bother me much before because I rarely saw black screens, but I was watching the Timescape video, which, for those who haven't watched, include a lot of dark, black backgrounds. Only then did I really start noticing the backlight bleeding. I'm thinking of opening up the bezel and playing around with the tightness of the screws. Hopefully that'll get rid, or, at the very least, alleviate, the problem.

It might help, or it might not. Just know doing so voids your Warranty.

And yeah, I had to send mine back because of it.

I've already opened it up to install a new third-party mount. I have a feeling that after I installed it, I probably overtightened the screws, as I usually tend to do anyway.

BTW, when you sent it back, how long did it take until a replacement got shipped back? And were there extra charges tacked on? And how is the replacement...is it better?

I wouldn't know.

I just shipped it today - A heft 75$ shipping.

But Accessorieswhole has said they will refund me the shipping charge once they receive it at their Warehouse.

Then, a week after they receive it, they will ship me a new one. I told them, in every single post, to check for backlight bleed, excessively, or else we'll be doing this dance again, and honestly? Only cost THEM more money. IF they'd take 10-15 minutes or so, checking backlight bleed, they could save themselves that 200$ Customs / Import tax.

Other than that, the monitor was perfect...no dead pixels, though I didn't go PP.

With my luck, next one will have no backlight bleed, but like 140 dead pixels.

If my next one has terrible backlight bleed again - I'll just say I want a full refund this time, not a replacement.

The monitor was just so amazing, just like...wow. I mean, 24'' 1200p, to 27'', 1440', feels like going from DVD to 1080p. ;P

The difference is just there...

So beautiful.

Also, you seem to have Tempered Glass, remember that can cause issues as well. Looks really nice, but eh, stuck dirt, reflections and extra weight on the panel.

Seriously, you have one spec on the corner and you find it annoying?

Try this... tongue.gif

That is awful backlight bleeding, lol. Your top left is what my bottom right looks like right now, although not nearly that bad.

And yes, I do have the tempered glass. Took the risk, but ended up getting zero dust. Don't really care about reflections either.

TN isn't an option after these. You're going to be really disappointed after using this for over a week and then looking at your 1080p LCD TV, you most likely have.
IT compares to my Plasma in many ways, except black levels.

Ahhh good to know. I am so praying for a great monitor. It is a bigger hassle to return this item to Korea for us people here in Turkey. Honestly.. :)

 

By the way guys my monitor is In Germany :)

My backlight bleed doesnt seem that bad. I can't backup that far from the screen though to see it like that. However, I did play some Batman arkham city and it is very dark in that game. With my lights off I was not distracted by it so maybe I got lucky or just dont get bothered by it that much.
Bang!

Highly doubt it. VGA's bandwith isn't enough I believe. Even for DVI, a DVID is required.
