On another note what is the manufacturer date on the back of yours? The one I am keeping is from Dec 2014, the Jan 2015 ones all seemed to have terrible bleed. The very strange thing is on the same settings the Dec 2014 colors are much different. Check out my picture below of the whites. Which does yours look like?
My monitor is made in Jan 2015, I just bought it yesterday. Not sure which mine looks like more but the only thing that bothers me is the yellow backlight bleed at the bottom right corner which is really only noticeable on a black backgound. The funny thing is that I can only see the bleed when I look straight at the monitor, if I look from the right it is not there.
