This is one click up from full lowest brightness:

I had the same amount of BLB on my X-Star, with the same distribution of bleeding, only upside-down. I consider this intolerable BLB, but I'd be curious to know what other, more experienced users are thinking about it (I never had those issues with my TN panel before).
I was able to fix most of the BLB using the tape method that is being suggested at the front page of this thread and a few youtube videos on how to open up the monitor. Feel free to ask if you need any help. Now, the bleed that emited from the center (which is at the top in your case, was at the bottom in mine) is all but gone. I don't even notice the remaining BLB, not even when playing dark games like Dishonored at night.
This is the BLB after
the tape fix. Mind you, the photo was taken with long exposure time, so the BLB looks worse than it actually is. Also, I didn't bother taping the upper part of the screen back then, which is probably the reason why there's still a decent amount of BLB there. I might get to it when I find the nerve and time...
If you don't want to take the risk of breaking something while using the tape mod, I'd seriously consider a refund or exchange on the sellers expense.Edited by Kwisatz - 8/22/13 at 1:24am
