What is the brightness on this out of curiosity? Looks like it'd be showing in actual use if that's at 35 - 40% brightness. No one should be using their monitor at 100% Brightness.

Monitor in actual use at 35% Brightness.
I've got no bleed in actual use with A01 March 2013 and I keep it at 35% - 40% Brightness at the very most.. I can go as high at 50% eye searing level and it's still good. However I'm not seeing it in actual use where I keep brightness so I'm not worried what it looks like above 50% Brightness as it's irrelevant.
Goes to show how it's luck of the draw between revisions. Looks like the newest revision might have better QC and hope they finally weed out of the older inventory.

So what do you guys recommend? Should I do an RMA with Newegg or go straight to Dell. I did read that someone mentioned Dell might be currently out of stock on these but I would like to think if I would receive a brand new latest production Monitor going through Dell currently?
Either way this really sucks. For anyone reading about this lower left glow garbage it is 100% noticeable in everything you do, and makes anything of darker color so bad you cant even see anything else. How they calibrate these and just say ok to this glow is ridiculous. Literally a child would look at this and say something is wrong...
Sorry to hear this if it's bleeding through in actual use gaming or watching movies. It's up to you if you want to try again with Newegg. Going with Newegg you have to box it and ship it back first and upon receiving it they send a new one. Deal with Dell they cross ship free while you keep the current and you ship it back after your exchange arrives.
Dell isn't out of stock anymore because we've had one other member already purchase directly with Dell and another who just got an exchange with Dell after it was reported to the club them being out of stock. Naturally, last option is try your luck with a different monitor, completely your call.
