Here is mine on medium brightness:

And on maximum brightness:

BTW: My top bezel also covers a few pixels (only visible if you display 1-2 pixel with frame around the screen though).

Is that typical?
My Potalion 27" also has that same pattern of bleed

Seem the ones made in the past couple of months have been improved in regards to the bezel issue, that's two so far. Hmm.

To the picture above: Stand further back. That's IPS glow, not bleed.

Really? Cause that's what my monitor looks like close up. What's back light bleed then?

Backight bleed IS like that, but that glow in the corners is because of the IPS panel when close up. Stand back, lights off, and have a look then. If you see bleed similar to the glow, then you have it.

You can see how it's IPS glow because it increases in intensity when he goes to a more extreme angle.

The farther back you can go, the better. And make sure the camera lens is level with the middle of the monitor to, to reduce the glow as much as possible.

Fellow Shimian owners...

Did you purchase a monitor that came with the US converted power brick? (rated at 110v)

Did you simply plug a power cord into the brick and move on with your life?

Did you purchase a new brick?

or..

Did you purchase a step-down transformer?

I purchased mine with 110V power bricks and plugged regular power cord into them. Some sellers only offer 220V and thereabouts bricks, so you may have to buy a replacement on your own (around $25 on eBay, I believe). Or you can just go with a seller who includes U.S.-compatible adapters in their listings already.

So, let's say I just used the brick it came w/ (ppl are doing that and they're saying it's working fine)

If something goes wrong would it ruin the brick, the monitor, or both?
