I checked the yellow tint on a completely white background and it is worse than I thought, it starts about half way down the screen and is very noticeable at the sides, top and bottom of the display. I'm so disappointed in AW as I asked if they check the screens first. Has anyone received a refund for this particular problem?
Nothing to be disappointed about. Regardless if you bought Korean monitors or monitors from sasmung,dell or others. Your going to run into either back-light bleed, minimal bleed or tinting. Not all panels are made equal. This can be be fought by using color profiles or calibrating the monitor yourself.
Nothing is wrong with the monitor that would need a seller to interact unless the pixels meet or exceed the count allowed by the seller dependning if it is a PP model or NON-pp model.
Since I'm assuming this isn't a PP model, your monitor has a higher chance for defects which is acceptable to the manufacturer under a certain extent. If you bought a PP model the tint is still acceptable just dead/stuck pixels aren't.
Not to worry though, individuals either have a Blue/Yellow or no tint. Again as I said this is fixed by using color profiles or calibrating the monitor yourself.
Other options are checking the cables inside the monitor to make sure nothing is loose.
Use another DVI-D cable.
In a few instances it can be the Graphics card. I've had a monitor plugged into a ATI 6950 and then a GTX680. No tint on the 6950 then I got slight tint on the 680.
Enjoy the monitor as it seems you have no other issues with it.
