It's rather easy. You can see the sticker through the back of your monitor on the bottom right side vent next to the USB ports. Look at the picture i posted for reference. I wont disclose the information to the public, but if you'd like to know please PM me.
As far as BLB, yes there is some BLB. This is the nature of a high res IPS panel. It doesn't seem to be as bad as the older panel, but it seems to be more the way the monitor is assembled and the pressure points of the panel to the bezel. It real life use though, its very hard to tell.
For me crosshatching was more of a defect with the monitor and that has been fixed greatly with the newer panel(SLC1).
