rushstrike, that's awesome. How did you get your panel out of the case? Are there more screws than the four at the bottom? The corner which is going dark when I run at an overclocked refresh rate isn't flush and slightly warped backwards. If I can fix that I'd be all set.

there should be a total of 11 screws: 4 screws in the back. After you remove those 4 screws you can start removing the plastic casing. Then there will be additional 2 screws on each side that holds the panel (as a tip remember how the metal side brackets are placed so you can put it back), then 3 screws that hold the lcd driver board, then finally you have to pry the metal casing open if you want to get to the panel.

I don't think you can do much to fix image distortion related to overclocking...It's probably only useful for people who have light bleed that goes away when you apply pressure on the screen (panel is not perfectly flush against the frame). But it's pretty easy to open so there's no harm to try.

Do you have to do the 'pry' step (that scares me) to fix blacklight bleed or only removing the screws?

If you weren't fortunate enough to get 50% off on Sqauretrade warranty, Costco actually sells the warranty for TV's up to $500 for just $30.

I can use my 2 finger and push on it to make it more uniform.... I knew even if I return this monitor the next one I get would probably have the same light bleed or possible more dead pixels.

SOLUTION TO FIX BOTTOM RIGHT LIGHT BLEED Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
After a week I couldn't stand it anymore so I decided to open the thing up to fix it. The monitor indeed is a PLS monitor : http://www.panelook.com/LTM270DL02_SAMSUNG_27.0_LCM_overview_12403.html
All I did was made sure that the panel sit flush against the frame and added black electrical tape at the bottom right on top of the glass piece around the LED array to make sure there's no light leak. Now my monitor is perfect granted i caused 1 dead pixel in the process.

Light bleed gone but still has some annoying dark region

Dark pixels lessen if I push against it

Time to open it up and give it a real fix



No more light bleed or dark region!

Thanks for this, you've answered all the questions I still had and hopefully I can now fix it myself if things don't look good when it arrives smile.gif

Incredible the amount of new registers posting on this thread. I hope you guys come here and stay here not just for this thread. It is a great forum.

Well it looks like I am in for 4 of the Matte PLS then. Have to see if Dream Seller will upgrade my gloss order to a matte if I pay the difference.

Going to pick one of these up today, should I go with matte or glossy? I'm thinking glossy because there isn't a lot of glare in my room where the monitor will be.

Has anyone bought the glossy version from dream-seller? I got it for $290 + $25 for ST warranty (40% off code) but I'm kind of worried the glare will be ridiculous as I sit next to a wall window.
