I think it's just an inherent flaw of this panel. But hey, I honestly still love the blacks. I have a desklight which makes it pretty much impossible for me to ever see... Again, if You/I would take the same photograph of any tn panel, the screen would be a lot brighter.

I took apart the entire monitor, and there are no tight spots/pressure points. Maybe there are pressure points inside the panel, but I'm not opening that one up:o
Actually, all photographs that show any bleed, show the highest amount of bleed at the right side. Is this where the LEDs are located? I'm pretty sure it's caused by the way this panel was designed.

Thanks for your reply, but you say there are no tight spots - when I put my finger on the lower bezel, at some points, there's a gap between bezel and panel itself, just big enough for my finger nail. Moving to left and right, I notice that this gap at some points (at the right end e.g.) is non-existent, so I thought this may be the source of the backlight bleed. Just wanted to check if anyone else had some sort of changing in the "bezel-display-gap-size" or does know if this can result in such backlight bleed.
Maybe I'll try to open the monitor in the next days and see if it's getting any better.

There is absolutely no pressure coming from the bezel. Trust me. I also tried the panel without the bezel attached. The front bezel that is. Still the same bleed.
There are even soft sponges on the backside of the panel to support the panel. It has nothing to do with the bezel, or the support system. It's inside the panel.

All this backlight bleeding is making me nervous...
Is the back light bleeding visible always or only when its dark/black?

No problem. I wouldn't recommend taking apart your panel, unless some already figured out a mod that actually works, with actual proof.
I was very careful, but still damaged the plastic bezel slightly. Fortunately I was already planning to take it apart to remove the stand.

A few (crappy) pictures:

Just glued to the panel itself


This is what you get when you just try to pry it off with a screwdriver lol


Proper way to do it


Still looks like Glossy to me?


Just some glass on there, no visible damage whatsoever to the monitor itself


The glass


Working just fine



People saying that's matte has gots to be blind.

Clearly glossy man, you prefer it with or without the glass? Your gonna have to get use to it now anyway haha thumb.gif

Well this is good news, proves that its on securely so you can easily debezel and not worry about it coming off, though I believe people still remove the gray frame around it to make it even thinner, I'll have to verify. Either way thumb.gif +1 for your findings!

Yup Very, can you put a piece of glass up to the screen and see if you see a difference in sharpness on text? Becareful when you do it just put it flat lol. Which seller did you get this from so we know who has the REAL gloss underneath.

It should be the same and or nicer w/o it, though many claim it makes it look even better, I have mine next to my current gloss and the only diff I really see I think is sharpness, it's not crazy but I can notice if I really pay attention.
