I hooked it up and was initially impressed with the PQ of the windows background colors looked great and there doesn't appear to be an dead or stuck pixels (which is good as I ordered a PP version). I immediately fired up BF3 and as the loading screen faded to black I noticed horrible blacklight bleed from all 4 sides and a big (about the size of a quarter) blue spot burned into the screen.
Does anyone know if they will replace a monitor with a blue spot or is that the reason for the A- panel? Overall it is livable but I definitely don't feel like this was a great purchase. Anyone have an idea what causes blue spotting like that?

Got any pics? That definitely is not normal. I would like to see what the backlight + blue dot you describe look like.

The blue smudge is almost certainly caused by prolonged pressure on the screen; the packaging for these monitors isn't fantastic I have to say. I have one on one of mine too, and BCC gave me a partial refund. I can live with it, as it's not noticeable on anything other than a completely black background. He'll offer to either refund or exchange it.

sounds good I can probably live with it as well. Definitely not as good as I was hoping for though. If these panels are generally considered A- I would rate mine as a C. Here is a picture. Backlight doesn't look as bad in the picture as it does in person.

Honestly the blue smudge may well have been caused by the shipping/packaging. Contact BCC, even if you can live with it, it's nice to get a partial refund.

I think we have to expect some blacklight bleed on these Pixel Perfect monitors. I mean, these screens won't be perfect, we know that. And if we guarantee they won't have dead pixels that really only leaves the bleeding to be the issue.

A reply on their backlight policy, for your reference:

This is S-IPS wide angle screen.
According to view angle, light bleeding may happen.
This is normal.
So, we check only "Serious" Light Bleeding.

Manufactor has rule about exchange.
In blue screen, if light bleeding appear,
they regard item as faulty.
And adjusted brightness, they don't regard it.

I expected some bleed. That's pretty much guaranteed. But the kind of bleed I'm having definitely qualifies as 'serious.'

Also, sent him the last batch of pics on Thursday, no response yet ...

I see!

I also received my perfect pixel Potalion yesterday. I was really happy with it (no dead pixels, a negligible amount of bleed at the top) until..

..it started showing some odd issues upon powerup. There's a ~50:50 chance of having pixels dance all over the screen

And about 10 seconds later the screen shifts altogether:

Power cycling the device one (or more) times resolves the issue, but still, it's quite annoying.

Has anyone seen anything alike before? Doesn't look good to me. Contacted the seller..

Can you fix your images because they are broken?

Something went wrong there. Fixed now.

As far the issue goes, it's kind of random - just tried a few power off/on sequences, which yielded the series FBCCFCCCCCF (F = fine, B = blank, backlight on, no image, C = corruption).

To further clarify, it happens in Windows too and is not visible on a screenshot.
